Calgon, Take Me Away -- Tales and Tails

Finding Serenity

by Houndstooth on

This week, the world has been a lot to take in.  Over the weekend we had a personal loss.  On Monday, we saw the worst mass shooting in our country’s history.  In local news, we’ve also had a big story here about some foolish and immature high school freshmen who have shown that they have […]

Walking Gear -- Tales and Tails

High Technology

by Houndstooth on

For the past several years, I have had a Fitbit strapped to my wrist, only taking it off when I get in the shower or take a swim.  It’s become a part of me that I really depend on, not just to track how many steps I take every day, but to record my sleep […]

A Walk In The Park -- Tales and Tails

Like A Three Legged Potato Sack Race

by Houndstooth on

It’s not a secret that I’ve been doing some fun walks with the girls this week.  For the most part, I enjoy taking them places and they are pretty good at walking together for me, unless something interesting to sniff comes along.  I allow for that kind of thing and try to remind myself that […]

This Walking Thing Is Alright

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing a few of my thoughts about National Dog Walking Week. I am pretty lucky that National Dog Walking Week happens while my human is on vacation.  This means we’re able to visit different locations and share some neat experiences from our walks.  This week is one that I like […]

Enjoying A Good Walk -- Tales and Tails

An Adventure That Wasn’t What We Expected

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share my weekend outing with you. I was a bit worried that we weren’t going to get much of an adventure this weekend.  Aunt J had a big presentation on Saturday morning and that meant that there wasn’t time for us to go out and do something Saturday.  Sunday […]

Snow Hounds -- Tales and Tails

When The Going Gets Tough

by Houndstooth on

This week, it hasn’t been much of a secret that we’ve been trying to get back into our walking routine and get the Idita Walk started off on the right foot.  Sunday, we got a ton of snow dumped on us, but we weren’t going to miss the first day of the walk.  Monday, it […]

Happy Morgan -- Tales and Tails

The Less Than Perfect Dog

by Houndstooth on

We have three dogs at our house that we could take anywhere and it’s a delight to take them out with us.  And then there’s Morgan, the less than perfect dog. Taking her somewhere with us requires a certain amount of fortitude and we generally have to mentally prepare ourselves before we leave the house […]

Why It’s Important To Walk Your Humans

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard with some things I wanted to share with you during National Walk Your Dog Week. There’s been a lot of talk this week directed at humans about why they should walk their dogs every day.  However, there are a lot of reasons why we canines should get our humans out […]

The Essentials Of Walking

by Houndstooth on

At our house, we love taking walks, and as the seasons change, so does our walking gear.  There are some things that definitely stay the same, but since it starts getting dark so early, we start pulling out some special things to make life a little easier when walking in the dark.  Since this is […]

Penalty For Cuteness -- Tales and Tails

Sitting On The Sidelines

by Houndstooth on

Last weekend, Flattery started working on a new corn on her foot.  I know this because she’s started standing with her foot off the floor again and an inspection of her foot shows the tell tale signs of one starting again.  She’s also gotten very defensive about me looking at her foot again. For that […]
