Dreamy Boy -- Tales and Tails

Teach Your Canines Well

by Houndstooth on

I remember back in the days when Küster was a puppy that Mr. Taleteller and I had a rule.  The rule was to never do something in front of him that we didn’t want him to be able to figure out, like opening the refrigerator door or driving the car.  I’m exaggerating a little, but […]

Everyone’s Best Friend

by Houndstooth on

I am one of those lucky people who grew up and almost always had a dog, along with other animals, in my life.  When I was eighteen months old, my parents bought a small farm and even after my parents’ divorce, my dad kept it and after a few years of living in town with […]

Silver Boy

A Game Changer

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 […]

Always Prepared -- Tales and Tails

We Still Remember

by Houndstooth on

Every year on this date, I debate about what, if anything, to say.  I’ve mentioned before that I remember as a little girl that my grandparents were adamant about making sure that we remembered Pearl Harbor Day, which is December 7 for those who don’t know.  That’s how deeply they instilled it in me, I […]
