    2022 – Dogs, Streams, Moving, and Health

    The thing about having three dogs is that every morning, in order to get outside, you’ve got to chase them around, get them dressed get their harnesses on. Then you can go outside. Wait no. You need baggies and treats. Oh, it’s raining put on rain jackets. Gir took off his shoes. Put them back…

  • Whinnie Dog

    Whinnie Dog

    Whinnie, my black pug, died Thursday morning at 3am as I held her. She was the best $1000 I ever spent. Just a perfect dog. She was stoic, almost never complained. She loved to play but would bark if she couldn’t find you. She knew what she wanted and could be very demanding. She was…

    Gracie Goose’s Last Day

    Today, Gracie Goose died. If you’ve known me for any length of time, then you’ve probably heard me talk about Goose. She was born in a horse barn, mom and the rest of the litter trampled by horses. She had a bunch of diseases, no hair, and her stomach was so distended, her feet did…

  • Yui

    In 1998 I saw a listing for black kittens in Pets Mart with a note saying she had two left and she would have to kill the last two. We jumped in the car and went to the address listed on the card. At trailer (illegally) parked next to a power plant was an old…

  • Updates and Puppies (Stuffed Squirrel Edition)

    So why am I wasting time with stuffed squirrels? It’s because I’m procrastinating. I know it. I managed to get very far ahead in NaNoWriMo early in this week so I can finish going through the chapters in Without Honor. I haven’t worked on other things like this blog, the other book or other commitments.…

  • Name That Squirrel

    So this squirrel followed me home from a bargain bin. I’m having trouble coming up with a name for it. The gerbil writing buddy is going to the daughter (who adopts all writing buddies eventually. So what should I name this one? Should I go for the name squirrel in a different language? Or is…

  • Nearly Lost

    I nearly lost my dog last night. This year we lost two pets (J. will say one since he doesn’t like cats). I found Seren dead in the snow…apparently liver failure…an old problem that came back. And Dagny got bone cancer. Halloween night we almost lost Whinnie, not to disease, but because she likes people.…

  • Cutest Dog Competition

  • Puppies!

    Last Friday, J. brought home a new doberman puppy. He’s cute and he is now named Ragnar…which translates to Rags. He’s cute. Whinnie isn’t too sure what to do as she’s no longer the youngest in the house. She’s still a happy snuggler though.
