The Visitor -- Tales and Tails

Switching Off

by Houndstooth on

I have been trying to psych myself up for the eventual occurrence of Bunny’s retirement.  She’ll be eleven in November and the past year has been tough on her.  I’m trying to just take an easier pace for her and let her slow down, but she’s not really down with the plan.  If I’m getting […]

How Do You Do

by Houndstooth on

Typically, when we do nursing home visits, Bunny goes with me and Flattery goes with Mr. Taleteller.  The girls both have their own style of greeting people.  Flattery is a little more outgoing and she’s usually the first one to walk up to someone and greet them.  She’s the penultimate social butterfly, going from one […]

Adventures In Doing Good Deeds

Hearts In Her Eyes -- Tales and Tails

Charm School

by Houndstooth on

This week, we found ourselves visiting at the nursing home again.  My husband was able to go with us this time, so Bunny and Flattery were in attendance, and this time was one when I found myself really happy that we had both of them with us.  That’s not to say that I’m not always […]


Search And Rescue Saturday — The Last Search Dog

A Day In The Life Of A Hospice Volunteer

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about something that I thought you might find interesting. It’s not a secret that I work as a therapy dog and a hospice volunteer.  I enjoy going to visit people and bring smiles to their faces.  Usually, I know where we’re going before we even leave the house.  Sure, […]

April Showers -- Tales and Tails

Little Ripples

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was supposed to be a rainy day, and my days of Spring Break are rapidly winding down.  One thing I still needed to get done was take Bunny on a few hospice visits.  I’ve put it off a little because the weather has been nice and we’ve been enjoying being out and about, and […]

Waiting On The Vet -- Tales and Tails

Insult And Injury

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing about a rather unsettling experience I had yesterday. Most of you probably know that I am a certified therapy dog.  The group that I work for requires me to send in my updated records every year, and this month my rabies shot was due.  Since I don’t want to […]

An Adventure Of My Own

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share my excellent Sunday with you. This weekend Dad had training on how to be a better search and rescue human, which left us dogs at home with Mom.  Saturday is usually our adventure day, but Mom was lacking in motivation.  She vowed that Sunday was going to be […]

On The Job -- Tales and Tails

An Adventure In Test Taking

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about my weekend trials and tribulations. Saturday was the hottest day of the year here so far in our corner of the world, so I was not terribly disappointed to see Mom and Dad go off to training with Küster early in the morning.  I am not a fan of […]
