Doing A Little Halloween Haunting

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share our fun at the nursing home with you. Every year, during our last October visit to the nursing home, we dogs wear our costumes to bring a little extra cheer to the nursing home residents.  It’s fun and we see a lot of extra smiles on that night, […]

A Glimpse Of The Future

by Houndstooth on

Last week after Kuster’s visit with our friends, he was doing much better than he had been, and it had been a while since we’d taken him along to the nursing home, so Mr. Taleteller decided to give him a shot at visiting.  I crossed my fingers and prayed that he’d remember his manners.  We […]

So You Want To Be A Therapy Dog

Bunny taking over the keyboard here. Thursday night was an exciting night during our nursing home visit.  It’s always exciting when we get to go, but this week it was especially good.  This week, Bella of The Hound Dogs fame made her first ever nursing home visit.  It was also our first time to meet […]

The Making Of A Therapy Dog

by Houndstooth on

If you’re a regular or semi-regular reader of our blog, you’re probably aware that our dogs work as therapy dogs, visiting nursing homes on many Thursday nights.  My first therapy dog was Treat, our first Greyhound.  When I started over training Bunny, I realized how good I’d had it with Treat.  It wasn’t that Bunny […]

Trained In The Creature Comforts

by Houndstooth on

Most Thursday nights find us visiting with the dogs at various nursing homes.  We’ve been visiting some of them for about eight years.  When you visit on a regular basis, you get to know some of the residents rather well.  It’s sad when you show up and a familiar face isn’t there anymore, but it’s […]

Ice Cream — It’s Everywhere

by Houndstooth on

Last night found us visiting the nursing home again.  I like that the girls are comfortable enough with it now that I can relax and not stand on tiptoe worrying about what they might do.  For the most part, Bunny and Blueberry comport themselves like well-behaved young ladies.  Morgan likes to keep Mr. Taleteller on […]

Lending Blueberry

Bunny here at the keyboard, sharing the end of our Saint Patrick’s Day with you. You might remember that Mom and I had been busy running important errands during the day on Thursday.  Finally, the errands were over and we went back to the house to rest up a bit and get ready for our […]
