Couch Comfort -- Tales and Tails

The Stand Off

by Houndstooth on

Earlier this week, I woke up and made my way to the living room.  That happens every day here, but this time, there was something different.  Bunny had taken over the end of the couch that Flattery usually occupies, which left Flattery sleeping on the dog bed.  This was not acceptable and she was determined […]

Blanketed In Love -- Tales and Tails

Blanket Policy

by Houndstooth on

Here in the Midwest, we have gone from unseasonably warm to unusually chilly, literally overnight.  It’s been a bit of a shock to everyone’s system, but we seem to be dealing with it differently.  One thing that we can agree on is that there is no blanket policy that suits everyone, although there is a […]
