Winter Of Our Discontent

by Houndstooth on

I admit it, winter is my least favorite time of year.  I try to put on a brave face and find things to enjoy about the season, but if we cancelled it, I’d be fine with that.  This year health issues, older dog issues and severe weather issues have kept us from doing some of […]

A Warm Heart In Winter

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about something on my mind. This weekend, we didn’t get out to do anything more exciting than take a regular walk, which isn’t really enough to write a blog post about, except to say that while I found the cool weather quite invigorating, other dogs thought it was downright […]
