Bow Down To My Powers Of Cuteness -- Tales and Tails

The Aww Factor

by Houndstooth on

Over the weekend, Mr. Taleteller and I found ourselves out running errands, much like most people do, I suppose.  We had a few non pet friendly stores to go into, and it was hot, so the dogs were left at home.  However, one of the stores we needed to go into was PetSmart. Normally, going […]

Search and Rescue Saturday — It’s A Puppy

by Mr. Taleteller on

As you might remember a couple of weeks ago our team found ourselves in Missouri doing a joint training with Missouri Task Force One.  One thing that I intentionally left out was that there is a new puppy on our team.  Yep, you heard it correctly.  Puppy.  Why did I intentionally leave the pup out?

Puppy Power {Of Amnesia}

by Houndstooth on

Sometimes, it seems like just yesterday that Küster was a wild little ankle nipper at our house.  Other times, it’s hard to believe that he was ever that little.  When we were enduring his puppyhood, I had a theory that puppy breath contains some powerful amnesiac abilities that make humans forget about all of their […]

Search & Rescue Saturday – That New Dog Smell

by Mr. Taleteller on

One question that I’m asked quite often and several people asked from my first post is, How did you come to get Küster? Answering that question will both let me talk about my favorite subject, Küster and continue the subject of what goes into finding a SAR dog.  You see, when someone first thinks about […]

A Glimpse To The Future, A Glance At The Past

by Houndstooth on

Bunny mentioned yesterday that we went to help with some Search and Rescue Training with Küster and Mr. Taleteller over the weekend.  This weekend’s training was different because they had a man who’s a Master Trainer there to give them three days of instruction with their dogs.  It was a great experience for everyone involved, […]

If You Sprinkle When You Tinkle…

by Houndstooth on

Ah, the joys of puppy adolescence continue to surprise and amuse us.  I wanted to write a story about Morgan today, but the truth is, Küster was just a lot funnier than she was this week.  And let’s face it, you only turn one once, so if you get the lion’s share of the spotlight, […]

Kuster On Parade

by Houndstooth on

About a month ago, Mr. Taleteller volunteered himself and Kuster to walk in the Labor Day parade with the Emergency Management Assistance group that they work with.  Kuster had been in the Memorial Day parade this Spring and had done well, so my husband was feeling very confident about taking Kuster in the parade this […]

Learning The Ropes From The Big Dogs

by Houndstooth on

This past Sunday, we were supposed to go up and play with puppies at Miss Breeder’s house.  That’s right, I was going to go suffer puppy teeth and toenails all to make you readers happy.  I might have also been planning to sneak a bottle of puppy breath home with me to get me through […]

Such A Considerate Puppy

by Houndstooth on

Today, here I am going back to work after a short summer break.  For those who don’t know, I work in a year round school.  We have a shorter summer break, but come October, I’ll be off for three glorious weeks.  Not that I am already counting down, mind you. The last few days before […]
