Hating The Boot -- Tales and Tails

The Boot

by Houndstooth on

I mentioned last week that Flattery is dealing with the return of another corn.  It’s hard to explain to people who haven’t experienced it, but the corn has to get to a certain level of hardness before you can pop it out.  Until that happens, it’s like walking with a pointy rock in your shoe. […]

Be Careful How You Talk To Your Dogs

by Houndstooth on

The other night, Mr. Taleteller and I were out walking with Flattery and Morgan in our quest for more steps.  It was a warm evening, but not uncomfortably so and we were on the home stretch.  As we walked down the last street, we had a bit of a strange experience. There’s a house on […]

Excuse You Very Much

by Houndstooth on

As a kid, I grew up with my dad telling stories about his very proper grandmother.  He used to laugh and tell us stories about how she would come over to family dinner on Sunday, sit at the table and fart, then look around accusingly at everyone else as if someone else had done it. […]

The Battle For Bed Domination Continues

by Houndstooth on

It hasn’t been much of a secret that Bunny and Mr. Taleteller have had a bit of a dispute about how things should go as far as who gets which prime real estate at bedtime.  They have an ongoing battle over the spot on the other side of the bed from where I sleep.  At […]

The Next Top Model

by Houndstooth on

I haven’t made much of a secret of the fact that I participate pretty actively on Flickr and I am doing a 365 project, which means that I take a picture every day.  There are different groups I belong to that offer different challenges every day, so I try to do something creative or pretty […]

Things That Go Oof In The Night

by Houndstooth on

Last week I found myself really sick and getting rest was pretty important.  I usually sleep pretty deeply, but I was sleeping like the dead on Friday night.  That’s the only explanation I can think of for the predicament I found myself in early Saturday morning. Normally, Bunny sleeps in bed with us.  It’s actually […]

Red Dog, Blue Dog — Politics Goes To The Dogs

by Houndstooth on

I don’t know about everybody else reading, but I’m already tired of all the campaigning going on here in the United States, and we still have a month left until the election of a new President. I get tired of all the nastiness that gets stirred up. Sometimes I wonder if the people running have […]

The Great Cat Invasion Of Woodford County

by Houndstooth on

Thursday, I had to work late at school because of parent teacher conferences.  This meant that Mr. Taleteller got to do afternoon turnout with the dogs.  Unbeknownst to me, my husband and Morgan had a little incident during morning turnout that I hadn’t been told about.  Morgan is usually the last one to go out […]

Oh, The Shame

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard today with a little fun. Almost everyone has heard about the Dog Shaming blog by now.  I know humans have different feelings about it, but I admit that I’ve laughed along with some of those pictures just like my humans have.  Over at My Brown Newfies and Kol’s Notes, they […]
