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 […]

Portrait of A Heart Dog -- Tales and Tails

Heart Healthy

by Houndstooth on

There have been a number of studies lately showing that having a dog is good for your heart.  The presence of a dog can lower your blood pressure and heart rate, as well as causing your body to relax.  Studies have shown that dogs help people in a variety of situations from young people testifying […]

2016 Resolutions -- Tales and Tails

Looking Back

by Houndstooth on

A lot of recent conversations with people have given me the feeling that most people are ready to see 2016 leave and usher in a new year.  It’s true that this year seems to have carried a lot of loss, from David Bowie at the beginning to Carrie Fisher, George Michael and Debbie Reynolds at […]

Morgan Writes To Santa -- Tales and Tails

Letters To Santa — Morgan

by Houndstooth on

It seems that every year, the dogs get Bunny to type their letters to Santa.  Since she’s a modern hound, she types them on the computer and that means that I can see them after she saves them.  They usually entertain me and so I share them here the week before Christmas while we’re getting […]

Merry Everything -- Tales and Tails

Adventures That Try My Patience

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, sharing an adventure that actually happened a couple of weeks ago. My human didn’t want me to talk about it until after she did her Shutterfly post, but a few weeks ago, we all piled into the Princessmobile and the hoop dee and went off to take our annual Christmas […]
