The Traveling Trio -- Tales and Tails

Resistance Is Futile

by Houndstooth on

It’s not a secret that some things have changed in our house since Morgan passed away.  Some of the changes are subtle and some are more obvious.  One thing that every one likes is that we get to spend a lot more time with Küster.  Mr. Taleteller brought him up to Morgan’s crate in the […]

Pretzel Legs

by Houndstooth on

In the winter time, it’s not uncommon for us to have a two dog night.  To be honest, as long as the dogs lay down without taking up too much real estate or on my back or legs, I don’t mind.  It’s nice to have that extra warmth during the cold winter nights.  In the […]

So Close And Yet…

by Houndstooth on

We have had some really hot weather lately that has resulted in a lack of activity for us and the dogs.  This weekend was a busy one for us, but we finally had a break in the weather.  On top of that, our Friday evening plans were curtailed when there was a call out for […]

Cabin Fever Strikes Again

by Houndstooth on

It’s been a tough summer break at our house.  Not having air conditioning in the car has been a big problem that has kept the girls at home.  As much as I want to take them with me, I can’t risk their health and safety.  That doesn’t mean that they really understand this, though.  Every […]

Short And Sweet

by Houndstooth on

Sometimes, I find it hard to describe for people the reason why my relationship with Bunny is special.  It’s not something like I think she would take a bullet for me or that she’d pull me to safety if I fell off a cliff while we were hiking together.  I’m sure she would offer me […]

There Are Some Days

by Houndstooth on

There are some days as a dog owner when you have to question your sanity, or your dog’s sanity, or just why the universe chooses to laugh at you.  I consider our dogs pretty obedient and in public, I never have to worry about too much with them and at home, most of the time, […]

The Big Ouch

by Houndstooth on

Sometimes in the course of sharing life with dogs, you find yourself facing unexpected injuries.  I can remember Mr. Taleteller with two black eyes after Blueberry hit him in the face with her titanium skull when she was in her early days here.  Küster left more bites, punctures and scratches on me than I knew […]

How To Make An Old Dog Happy

by Houndstooth on

This has been the first week of summer break for me and it hasn’t exactly gone as planned.  The air conditioning in the car still isn’t fixed, so the only dog who has gone for a ride has been Morgan when we took her to the vet.  Since she’s been a little under the weather, […]
