The New Guy

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share one of our weekend’s happenings. Our uncle, Mr. Trainer is going to be getting his first house soon.  We were very surprised and excited to learn that he decided that the first thing he needed when he moves into his house is a dog.  Mom said she was […]

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Manners

by Houndstooth on

Last night I went with Mr. Taleteller and Kuster to manners class.  Sometimes one must accompany one’s spouse to such things for the sole purpose of getting a good laugh and amusing the blog reading public.  That’s right, dear readers, I did this for you. I mentioned something about Kuster’s lack of manners to his […]

The Pup Not Taken

by Houndstooth on

You might remember back during our puppy search that when Kuster’s litter was born that there was a certain little girl in the litter that I adored.  My husband struggled with choosing between Kuster and another male in the litter named Kodiak.  After we brought Kuster home, we were curious about where the other puppies […]

You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, I took our weekly photo of Kuster.  I’ve had the rather ambitious goal of getting a picture of him every weekend to compare how much he’s grown on a weekly basis.  So far, I’ve managed to catch one pretty regularly.  It’s hard to believe how much he’s grown in such a short time, […]

The Glamorous Life Of A Puppy Owner

by Houndstooth on

I think most of the people who read the blog are like me when they see a picture of a puppy.  Your heart melts a little and you find yourself catching a whiff of puppy breath.  You think about all the fun a puppy brings to your life and how fun it would be to […]

There Will Be No Living With Him Now

by Houndstooth on

Monday night was another fun-filled adventure at puppy class for Mr. Kuster.  He’s one of the youngest puppies in his class, but he is very intense and loves to work.  Because Mr. Taleteller is a member of the training club, he needs to volunteer a certain number of hours to keep his membership.  There’s a […]

Who’s Training Who?

by Houndstooth on

For a while now, Kuster has had this rather adorable habit of trying to walk himself with his own leash.  Often when I get home and let him out of his crate, he’ll grab the handle of the leash with his mouth while I hang on to the middle of the leash and lead me […]

Growing Up Wild — Taste of the Wild

by Houndstooth on

Having a puppy around the house definitely turns things upside down.  There are a lot of things that you expect to change, and there are things that you never see coming.  I have grown to accept, and even be charmed by Kuster’s foot fetish (He says that my feet smell and taste fantastic!), his exuberance, […]

The First Day Of School

by Houndstooth on

One of the things I like about my job (that I earn money for), which happens to be teaching PreK, is that for my students, there is a lot of magic and wonder in the world.  Something that I’ve seen so many times that I never give it a second thought can be a source […]

It Takes A Village

by Houndstooth on

Raising a puppy isn’t easy.  They don’t mention that when you see all the pictures of their adorable cuteness.  I’ve noticed that all three of our girls have been really good with Kuster in different  ways.  I think he probably learns more from them than he does from me, although he’s a very quick study […]
