Eight Is Great -- Tales and Tails

Eight Is Great

by Houndstooth on

Today is a big day for a certain black Greyhound at our house.  Flattery has a birthday today and she says that eight is great.  I think I might be one of the rare people on the face of the planet who has an eight year old puppy.  I know that eight years old is […]

Kissy Face -- Tales and Tails

Still As Sweet

by Houndstooth on

Over the weekend, a certain little blue fawn hound here celebrated a milestone.  Bunny turned twelve years old and I can say that she’s still as sweet as the day we first met her.  We’ve all gotten a little older together and more comfortable in each other’s company but she’s very much like the almost […]

Birthday Girl -- Tales and Tails

Celebrating The Fun

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was Flattery’s seventh birthday, a fact that I find incredibly hard to believe.  Actually, I completely believe it was her birthday, but I just cannot wrap my head around the idea that she’s seven years old.  It seems like just yesterday that we brought a two and a half year old wide-eyed wild child […]

Birthday Present -- Tales and Tails

On Being A Senior Hound

by Bunny Hound on

Bunny here at the keyboard, writing a bit on being a senior hound. I’m not going to lie to you all, I had a pretty good birthday weekend.  My human spoiled me a lot, letting me cuddle in bed with her as long as I wanted, giving me extra treats, sharing a birthday cake with […]

How We’ve Grown

by Houndstooth on

If you’re a long time reader of this blog, you may have noticed that at its core, this blog is often a love letter to a certain little golden hound.  The truth is, this blog wouldn’t exist if Bunny hadn’t come into my life and I’m amazed by how we’ve grown.  Before Bunny, there was […]

Worth The Effort

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, we’ll be celebrating a birthday for a certain pointy eared dog at our house.  I had no idea how Morgan would change our lives when she first came to live with us, but I can say that I’m happy we’ve had the experience.  She has definitely been the most challenging dog that either […]

Birthday Sweetheart -- Tales and Tails

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

by Houndstooth on

This weekend, we had a celebration at our house.  A certain little black dog turned six years old on Saturday and we celebrated in a quiet family fashion with a few toys and treats.  Maybe Flattery is our resident love bug because she’s born so close to Valentine’s Day, but whatever the reason, there’s no […]

Bunny Turns Ten -- Tales and Tails

Today Is A Gift

by Houndstooth on

Ten years ago, I became one of the luckiest people alive, although I didn’t know it right away.  A special litter of puppies was born, a few days early from what I’ve heard, and they started changing people’s lives from the beginning.  The breeder was supposed to go on an outing that day, and had […]

And Then She Was Eight

by Houndstooth on

Eight years ago we had no idea what was coming.  It was just an ordinary November day as far as we knew.  It wouldn’t be until a year and a half later that we’d know she’d come into existence, and that she came along to teach us a lot of things.  Our journey together hasn’t […]
