One Month

Pona has become sort of a favorite at the vet’s office, and this is his best friend there. Her name is Laurie, and she’s the vet tech who does Pona’s bandage changes every week. Every time we get out of the car to go into the vet’s office, Pona does his DO NOT WANT routine, […]

Brave with My Hollerin’

I just got home from walking the dogs, and my heart is still racing. While walking down the sidewalk, FOUR little dogs ran up to us from a few houses away and attacked. The biggest of the four was a Shiba Inu (Basenji-sized), a Chinese Crested (rat-sized), and two little fuzzy dogs (loaf-of-bread-sized). Do I […]

I Said “Lunch”, Not “Launch”!

Remember the Krofft Supershow on tv in the ’70s? With shows like Land of the Lost and Bugaloos? While putting this post together this morning I thought about one of those shows called Far Out Space Nuts. The title to this post is a line from that show. I remember Gilligan was in it. Anyway… […]

A Few Scratches and Dings

I have a new foster Basenji through Basenji Rescue…that happens all the time. No biggie, right? But this one was a stray, and not an owner-surrender. Well, not that uncommon.

And Then…

Fast-Topic-Changing-Friday. No, SUPER-Fast-Topic-Changing-Friday. That’s just the way things have been around here. Have you ever looked ahead to your schedule, noticed that you were going to be busy, and then planned ahead to make it easy on yourself? I did laundry, caught up on emails, cleaned the house, stocked up on dog food, etc. And […]

Sit. Stay.

Fast-Topic-Changing Friday, hold the anchovies. I posted about my broken foot last week, so I don’t need to go over that again. This week I’d like to address what is going on in my HEAD. “My Mental Illness”, as I’m kindly addressing it. A broken foot should make one want to slow the hell down. […]

Step-Thud, Step-Thud

No, that’s not Quasimodo sneaking up behind you. It’s me. I broke my foot. Oh, I wish I had a good story to tell about the break. Like maybe… I dropped a sledgehammer on my foot! Rollerderby practice! I kicked someone! The truth is that I WOKE UP with a broken foot. I know that […]
