What Dreams May Come -- Tales and Tails

The Blame Game

by Houndstooth on

There is one thing that continues to go on at our house, and that is dogs getting up early and wanting out around 3:30 in the morning.  With four dogs, the biggest problem is figuring out the instigator.  My husband and I both have differing opinions and experiences on the subject, but the blame game […]

Quite The Character

by Houndstooth on

I was thinking the other day about our dogs and their personalities.  I love how unique each of them is and what each of them bring to us and our little group dynamic.  Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that they aren’t a little human with the things they do.  We all know a dog who […]

The Great Cookie Heist -- Tales and Tails

Crime Scene Investigation

by Houndstooth on

When you have a lot of friends with dogs, it’s inevitable that you sometimes run into dogs that are not your own.  In particular, with Search and Rescue, you meet a lot of new dogs.  People try to plan training a new dog before the previous dog is ready to retire so that they don’t […]

On Watch -- Tales and Tails

The Fickle And The Faithful

by Houndstooth on

Like most people, I was listening to the news earlier, and I heard the news that another of our President’s top people has been let go and replaced.  It’s like a revolving door, and I find it’s tough to keep up with who’s doing what for our country these days.  I remember early reports that […]

Hello, Puppucino! -- Tales and Tails

Living The Dream

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about my weekend. Last Thursday, Dad and Küster headed off for a long weekend doing whatever SAR teams do.  At first, we were a little sad to see them go, but then we realized it was a girls only weekend and we were happy dogs.   We were living […]

I Know You Really Want To Pet ME - Tales and Tails

Such Good Manners

by Houndstooth on

About a week ago, we had the Greyhounds out for a few errands with us.  As usual, we were stopped by a number of people who wanted to meet them, pet them and ask questions.  We know when we take them out that this will happen, and we plan to have a relaxed, nonrished outing […]

It Wasn't Me -- Tales and Tails

Blaming The Dog

by Houndstooth on

There are some moments in life that you just have to laugh about.  Last night, we experienced one of those moments and it was too good not to share.  There were no innocent parties, and so no names have been changed. Mr. Taleteller has a habit of blaming the dog in jest when he experiences […]

Morgan at the Wheel -- Tales and Tails

Panic At The Drive Through

by Houndstooth on

I’m starting to think that I may need to start a go fund me page to get a webcam for Mr. Taleteller’s car.   There are some things that are just too funny not to share, and laughing about them makes other things easier to live with.  It’s true that this story would be funnier […]

Cooking With Bunny -- Tales and Tails

Too Many Cooks

by Houndstooth on

In our house, we humans have been guilty of eating a lot of fast food.  We both work and it’s often easier for Mr. Taleteller to just run through the drive through than to come home and then get through dog chores and then finally start cooking dinner.   Lately, though, we’ve been trying to […]

Shepherd On Duty -- Tales And Tails

Make It Stop

by Houndstooth on

If you live in the United States, my guess is that you have seen the Febreeze commercials that air most of the time, unless you don’t have a television.  The clever people at the ad agency for Febreze have decided that in order to get your attention, they must play an obnoxious noise at the […]
