All It Needs Is A Little Love... -- Tales and Tails

Christmas Stress

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about a few things on my mind. I am starting to get a little concerned about the state of Christmas at our house.  My humans still have not procured a proper Christmas tree.  It seems there are some problems with the Princessmobile and the only available mode of conveyance […]

You Shouldn't Have -- Tales and Tails

And Then She Was Eight

by Houndstooth on

Eight years ago we had no idea what was coming.  It was just an ordinary November day as far as we knew.  It wouldn’t be until a year and a half later that we’d know she’d come into existence, and that she came along to teach us a lot of things.  Our journey together hasn’t […]

Always On Watch -- Tales and Tails

The Last Word

by Houndstooth on

I think living with all breeds of dogs brings certain challenges.  Living with Greyhounds even has challenges from time to time, as I’m sure most Greyhound owners could tell you.  One thing I love about them is that they are pretty quiet.  German Shepherds, on the other hand, always have a lot to say. In […]

Miss Red, White and Blue -- Tales and Tails

Go For The Gold

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about what’s on my mind this weekend. With the Olympics now in full swing, we’ve been swept up a little in the fever of watching them and seeing who will win different competitions.  We spent a fantastic Friday evening watching the opening ceremonies together as a family and sharing […]

Letting It All Hang Out -- Tales and Tails

The Sweetest Thing

by Houndstooth on

If you read yesterday’s blog post, I suppose you could guess that it’s been a long week for me.  It wasn’t my usual humor-filled fare and I hope it wasn’t too much of a downer for anyone.  The truth is, behind the scenes, there have been other things wearing on me besides a few dogs […]

Morgan -- Tales and Tails

Mean Green

by Houndstooth on

If you’re a long time reader of the blog, you know that while Morgan has a lot of challenging issues, she also has one self appointed job in the world.  That job is to keep the rest of the pack safe.  Most of the time, that usually involves a great effort on her part to […]

Pardon Me, Do You Have Any Grey Poupon? -- Tales and Tails

Adventures In Keeping Cool

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing a little about my weekend. In case you didn’t get the memo, it’s hot here where we live.  If it’s this toasty in June, I’m definitely not looking forward to August.   Our big plans for the weekend were keeping cool and getting my human packed for her trip […]

Happy Morgan -- Tales and Tails

For Whom The Doorbell Tolls

by Houndstooth on

I have talked before about how Morgan is very protective of our family.  There are times when her overprotective tendencies can be a good thing.  I can recall the time a man came to the front door to ask about cutting down a tree that had died in front of our house and she was […]

Bottoms Up -- Tales and Tails

And That’s What I Think Of That

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was one of those days that you just want to forget.  I suppose we’ve all had them.  It started out with small, piddly things in the morning and quickly snowballed into all out nightmare status.  Suffice it to say that basically, if it could go wrong, it did.  I was looking forward to getting […]

Shepherd On Duty -- Tales And Tails

The Send Off

by Houndstooth on

I think for most dog owners, one of the best things about having dogs is coming home to them after you’ve been away to work or for a long day of something that was less than wonderful.  Dogs have a way of making us feel really important and special when we get home with the […]
