Dogs in the Fu Dog Garden -- Tales And Tails

Search And Rescue Saturday–Pets

by Mr. Taleteller on

For daily readers of TalesAndTails you already know that we have lost Bunny this past week.  Her death was not at all expected and sudden.  I was trying to decide about what to write on today being that it has been difficult writing anything lately with that thing called life that keeps going on but, […]

The Kids Are Alright

by Houndstooth on

We have had more people than I can count checking in on us these days, and I am very thankful for it.  One of the things I am asked a lot is about how Flattery and Küster are doing.  Today I’m here to tell you that the kids are alright. At first, I felt like […]

Flattery At The Door -- Tales and Tails

The Visitor

by Houndstooth on

Over the weekend, we had a lot of people reach out to us and offer their condolences and support.  We really are lucky to have so many wonderful people who care about us and our dogs.  On Sunday, one of our fans and an old friend, called and told me he was on his way […]

Snow Bunny -- Tales and Tails

Snow Day

by Houndstooth on

To my surprise and delight, yesterday turned out to be a snow day for me.  The school district that I work for isn’t very good about calling off school, even when travel is treacherous and all the other schools in the area call off.  The timing of this blizzard made it necessary, though, since parts […]

Christmas Cards -- Tales and Tails

Pleasantly Surprised

by Houndstooth on

Last year, we ended up not keeping our annual tradition of taking group Christmas card photos of the dogs or sending out Christmas cards.  It wasn’t because we didn’t want to, we just found ourselves really short on time and facing a few other challenges.  We also kept waiting for a day when we had […]

It Wasn't Me -- Tales and Tails

A Dog Bed For A Dog

by Houndstooth on

There are some nights when I suspect that I live in a zoo instead of a regular house.  The other night was a good example of this, as well what a character Flattery is at times.  It’s entirely possible that she has become too spoiled.  I never thought that having a dog bed for a […]

The Scarecrow Cafe -- Tales and Tails

A Real Scare

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend we had a real scare here at our house that we were not expecting.  Looking back on it now, I can say that I’m glad that we had the things we do in place.  You just never know when an accident is going to happen to you. The Scarecrow Cafe The evening […]
