Dia de los Muertos -- Tales and Tails

Día De Muertos

by Houndstooth on

Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday that is starting to be more recognized in other parts of the world, although I find that not many of our friends who live in Europe have heard much of it at all, and a lot of people even here in the United States don’t really know a […]

Buddha and Bunny -- Tales and Tails

Family Resemblance

by Houndstooth on

Last week, Bunny mentioned that we met her brother at the recent Greyhound reunion our adoption group holds.  We’re lucky in that most of the dogs from Bunny’s litter were all adopted through the same group and this allows us to know a little about them.  I got to meet several of Bunny’s littermates in […]

A Sense Of Entitlement

by Houndstooth on

I remember when we had Lilac that she had a certain bossy, sassy way about her.  Some of you might remember that Mr. Taleteller would hide in the bathroom to eat his pie on peace, because if Lilac decided she wanted something, she was relentless.  Most of the time I could laugh it off, but […]

Nu Vet Reviews: Trying Out Nu Vet Supplements

by Houndstooth on

A few months ago, I was approached by Nu Vet and asked if I would be interested in trying some of their supplements and reviewing them.  I admit that at first I was skeptical, because supplements take a while to show a lot of benefit, but they were willing to send us enough that our […]

I Sit And You Pass Out Treats

You Had Me At Sit

by Houndstooth on

Since we brought Flattery home, my husband has been working diligently to teach her one thing.  He has been working at getting her to sit on command.  I know that some people think Greyhounds can’t sit, but they can.  Other people think they can’t be taught to sit, or do anything else on command, but […]
