A Game Changer

by Houndstooth on

There are certain times and places that we always remember.  On this day, seven years ago, Bunny and I were away on vacation at Dewey Beach.  It was a magical trip for us that we took with a friend and her Greyhound and we had perfect weather for a trip to the beach.  Early on […]

The Places You'll Go -- Tales and Tails

The Big Time

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday, Flattery had an unexpected adventure on her own that she seemed to really enjoy.  Actually, I’m pretty sure that she thought she’d hit the big time with the whole deal.  I have a feeling that I’ve stumbled onto something that I should have considered awhile ago.

Making The Switch

by Houndstooth on

This week as we’ve been thinking about National Dog Walking Week and getting out and about more, I’ve been going through some of our gear.  It’s a good idea to check things from time to time to be sure they’re still safe and functional.  I’ve heard plenty of stories about collars that fell apart after […]

Sleeping In

by Houndstooth on

This morning, I’m keeping a promise I made to Bunny weeks ago.  I told her that soon, we’d be sleeping in together again.  Today, after two nights of working late at eleven hour days, I’m keeping that promise.  We’ll be back next week with some stories about some sort of adventure that we dream up […]
