Or, more accurately, when one dog gets gastroenteritis in a multi dog household...
I apologize for being a bit MIA last week. I usually try to post at least twice a week, but sometimes life gets in the way. Last week was a bit crazy. I posted on our Facebook page about Fen not feeling well, and am finally getting around to updating everyone on what was going on. ...continue reading "When it Rains…"
Happy May! I hope everyone is enjoying the nice spring weather. The temperatures here have been a bit bipolar lately. On Saturday we had sunny 80*+f weather and on Sunday it dropped back down to just below 60*f. Not that I'm complaining! Saturday's hotter weather came complete with a nice cool breeze and, since I'm more of a fan of cooler weather, I was happy about Sunday's cool down. Except for when it rains, the windows in our apartment have been open pretty much 24/7 for the past week or so. I'm trying to enjoy as much window time as possible, as I'm sure it won't be long now before it gets hot enough to put our ACs in. ...continue reading "Of Dogs and Open Windows"

These pictures/video are from last week, right before all the snow started melting. The very next day the park looked so different, almost all the snow was gone.

I'm using the term "leprechaun" to mean dogs dressed up in St. Patrick's Day bandanas. Actually, if you want to get technical, Kit is wearing a St. Patrick's Day bandana and Fen is wearing a Christmas bandana. Dog sized St. Patrick's Day attire was in short supply here, so a green Christmas bandana will have to do. Luckily Fen can't read, so he doesn't mind the slight. ...continue reading "Leprechaun Invasion"
Happy 2016! I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start. The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year. The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch. We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"
My fiance and I celebrate Yule rather than the more common Christmas. I don't want to give you all a history lesson here, but many of the traditions commonly associated with Christmas actually have their roots in ancient Nordic Yule celebrations. To most people, our Yuletide celebrations probably don't seem all that different then your average Christmas. I think one of the biggest differences is that instead of just being one day, Yule each year starts on the first day of winter and lasts 12 days - until the new year! ...continue reading "Happy Yule!"
