Under Cover Greyhound -- Tales and Tails

Blanket Policy

by Houndstooth on

Here at our house, one of the things we like the best about the cooler months is being able to curl up with a cozy blanket. My husband reminds me a little of a grown up Linus, always dragging his favorite blanket around the house with him.  As a matter of fact, just this week, […]

Penalty For Cuteness -- Tales and Tails

Dogs In Commercials

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about something on my mind. Like most families in the United States, mine watched the Super Bowl. We really didn’t care who won, since none of us are big sports fans.  We mostly watch it to see the commercials and have an excuse to eat tasty snacks. Even if […]

I Dig You -- Tales and Tails

A Bit Obvious

by Houndstooth on

It hasn’t been a secret lately that Flattery feels that she’s entitled to a certain amount of time with Mr. Taleteller.  Our little snuggle bug doesn’t just want affection, she usually demands it.

by Houndstooth on

Lately, there seems to be a lot of hostility in the world, or at least we’re hearing about it a lot more.  Here in the United States,  we’ve just gone through a very divisive election, but in other parts of the world, there seem to be other issues that people are dealing with.  I try […]

Snug As A Bug In A Rug -- Tales and Tails

Easy To Please

by Houndstooth on

If you’ve read the blog for awhile, you may remember that Bunny has one major pet peeve.  The one thing that royally kinks her tail is when my husband comes home before I do. Usually when it happens, he doesn’t beat me by much, but the other night he came home early to make a […]
