Through the Tall Tall Grass -- Tales and Tails

Never Walk Alone

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend, Mr. Taleteller had a class he had to attend on his own for search and rescue.  All humans on the team have to keep their ground search certification up, and it was time for him to get his done.  That meant that I had the weekend mostly to myself.  As it turned […]

A Good Walk Cures A Lot

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard sharing a little trick I’ve learned. This week, Dad was gone for a while and we dogs stayed at home with Mom.  I happen to really enjoy this arrangement because it means that I don’t have to share a pillow and I can stretch out in the bed at night. […]

A Hiking Alternative

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard sharing our weekend’s adventure. You might have heard on the news that there has been a lot of flooding in the area where we live.  Actually, they’re saying it’s the worst flood ever.  Our town was hit really hard.  As a matter of fact, there are some houses that will […]

Looking For A New Challenge

by Houndstooth on

Bunny and I have really enjoyed meeting a few challenges to get us through the cold winter months.  We made it through the 30/30 Challenge and the Idita Walk.  These challenges are good for me because it appeals to my competitive spirit and gives me the motivation I need to get moving. This was the […]

The Competitive Spirit Is Alive And Well

by Houndstooth on

We’ve been trying to be pretty diligent about taking our walks so we can finish our Idita Walk minutes this month.  In the beginning, Bunny and I were almost always walking with Mr. Taleteller and Morgan.  Lately, though, Bunny and I have been walking by ourselves because my husband has had things going on and […]

Something A Little Different

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard to share our weekend adventure. You might remember that last week was more than a little stressful for Mom.  She has some unusual circumstances going on at her job and Grandpa is in the hospital recovering from his surgery.  She was running pretty ragged.  Saturday, we decided to get her […]

A Pupdate On Our Challenges

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing a follow up to our participation in the 30/30 Challenge.  We also used our walking every day to meet the Something Wagging challenge of strengthening our bond this month.   It wasn’t always easy, but we managed to complete the 30/30 Challenge and walked every day.  Once we broke […]

You’ve Got To Have Gear

by Houndstooth on

We’ve been actively participating in the 30/30 Challenge this month and starting in February, we’ll be participating in the IditaWalk which will run through the end of March.  I’m glad that we’re doing both of these, but it does mean that most of the time, during the week, we’re walking in the cold dark night. […]

Up For The Challenge

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about how I’m keeping Mom in shape this winter. As you might know, humans tend to worry a lot about fitting into pants with certain numbers on them.  Staying in shape hasn’t been much of an issue for me, but Mom frets about these sorts of things.  Personally, I […]

Wag and Walk 4 Life

by Houndstooth on

Last winter, we joined the Iditawalk Challenge to help us stay motivated to get out and keep walking over the winter months.  It was a great success for us, and I’m glad we did it, because it’s tough for me to get myself off the couch and outside when it’s cold and snowy.  I know […]
