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 […]

Pretty Morgan -- Tales and Tails

Getting The Best End Of Things

by Houndstooth on

Sometimes as dog owners, we start to notice little quirks in our dogs that weren’t there before.  I’m not sure how they start, I just know that they appear, for better or worse.  Some are endearing and some make you want to pull your hair out at times.  The latest quirk is with Morgan. For […]

Old Church Door -- Tales and Tails

Upsetting The Apple Cart

by Houndstooth on

Last week, I had a hair appointment one night after school.  That’s not an earth shaking event by any means, although I was it questioning my sanity for making it during the first week back to school.  In any event, it meant that Mr. Taleteller arrived home before I did and took care of the […]

Morgan at the Wheel -- Tales and Tails

Spring Folly

by Houndstooth on

It’s not a secret that I’ve been enjoying spring break at home for a few weeks.  I’ve definitely been enjoying a lot of quality time at home with the dogs, but I’ve been trying to get out and about some in the world some every day.  When I do go out, I’ve been taking Bunny […]

Empty Eggs -- Tales and Tails

Whose Yard Is It, Anyway?

by Houndstooth on

Well, Spring has sprung in our corner of the world and along with daffodils, hints of green and warmer weather, we are also seeing signs of something else.  I am pretty sure that there is a severe case of Spring Fever that has hit here at our house.  It’s the only thing I can come […]
