Dogs are the best people…

Friday I finished reading The Art of Racing in the Rain.  I LOVED it.  Loved.  Except when it made me cry.  And not just a couple of tiny tears in the corner of my eye… this was real actual crying.  But, it also made me laugh a lot too. The whole book is told from [...]

A wild pack of family dogs…

While Mom was in Denver, Reggie got to stay at my house with the “real dogs”.  Now, those of you who know Reggie might describe him as high-maintenance, or pampered, or spoiled rotten.  Yea, maybe.  But, he’s also awfully sweet and funny.  My house was full of comic relief while he was there.  Especially since [...]

And they call it puppy love…

Usually when I’m out with pups, people comment on Grover (Mr. Barky von Schnauzer), or Lady (big fluffy St. Bernard) if she’s with me, but Tillie (Miss Australian Cattle Dog) doesn’t usually garner much attention.  It always surprises me, cause I think she’s beautiful, but maybe people just aren’t as familiar with her kind of [...]

Just too busy being fabulous…

Ha ha ha ha ha!  I crack myself up. So, it’s been a busy couple of weeks!  After that lovely 2 week holiday shutdown, I went back to work.  And guess what!  It hasn’t slowed down. Aside from work, I’ve been busy with some fun stuff too.  A couple of weekends ago, I got a [...]

I love my dog as much as I love you…

Go ahead and jump!

Evans (the much more dog-friendly neighbor of Greeley) got a new fun dog park!  AND it’s way closer to our house than Greeley’s only dog park, and it’s way nicer.  It has two big grassy yards (with trees!) for big dogs – they are keeping one of them open at a time so that they [...]

Like a night at the county fair

We went to the county fair over the weekend!  Our county fair is kinda small and quiet and relaxed, especially after the big spectacle of the Stampede – no carnival or concerts or craziness.  A LOT of 4-H stuff though.  But I like to go and check out some of the animals and the crafty [...]

I have a little turtle, his name is Tiny Tim…

I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.  He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap.  And now he’s sick in bed, with bubbles in his throat.   So, I have a new pet (pretty sure it’s a boy).  He’s actually been here for a couple of [...]

Over the river and through the woods…
