I'm worn out from watching the news and complaining about it. Fed Up. You know what cures that? Dogs. They don't care about such things. The weather broke here and it's absolutely beautiful. Why not spend some time chucking a ball to the pups? They really are amazing creatures, and that line that we don't … Continue reading Head Clearing
Hopefully the last Jasper update. So thanks to the labor day holiday, Jasper had to wait another two days to get his stitches out. It was a tough morning. He had beaten his 'reusable' cone to death and learned how to remove it. It's sitting on the counter, dirty and battered. It took no time … Continue reading Jasper Update
My dogs all get a mix of kibble and some canned food. After spending tons of money on high end food that bothered their guts, I settled on IAMS which has worked well. Especially on the wallet. I mix it with a bit of Pedigree canned food. Usually Chicken and Rice. Oddly enough, this cheaper … Continue reading Make Your Own Dog Food?
I read a funny post on Knuckledraggin that said if a dog could speak, it's first words would be "Dude, You gonna eat that?" No kidding. Homey's new lid That lampshade is what hit the back of my legs as I took out the trash tonight. Tomorrow trash day is when I clear out the … Continue reading If Dog’s Could Speak
It was the crazy girl, Aria's, birthday yesterday. The girl, as a pup in the shelter She's four, if memory serves, and has become a super sweet lady. Well, at least to most. She's very protective, and a total daddy's girl. She'll snarl at anyone or anything the comes close to me. She has been … Continue reading Happy Birthday!
Kenny over at Knuckledraggin lost another dog. Lucy was old and not well. Doesn't matter. Just because you know something like this is coming, it doesn't make the pain any less severe. Not long ago he lost Charlie. Both times his loss hit me in the guts. It got real dusty in here reading about … Continue reading A tragic loss, and Jasper update
Last night wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. After closing the computer down, I took off the boy's lampshade and laid down with him on the couch. He had a good two hours sleep, until he had enough and went into his crate. So I had to re-install his lampshade. He slept … Continue reading Jasper Update
This is the boy's new thing: https://vimeo.com/593051565 He's getting mouthy. This is Jasper's new thing. As it happens, I figured out, by simple observation, that he wants to either come into my office, or have Aria play with him. I think it's more that he wants to hang at my feet. But girlfriend will bite … Continue reading Just another day….
Every night, when it's time for the pups to go to bed, we simply say their name and "Night Night". The two older dogs simply walk into their cages. Jasper usually does as well. But every now and then, He pauses to make sure. Maybe, I'll change my mind... https://vimeo.com/591330472 Time for Bed
Every morning the boys tell me it's time to walk. Girlfriend (Aria) is usually in the sunroom on a vigil for squirrels. I have to coax her to walk. Eventually, I give in and take them out. Any why not? It buys me 8 hours of them loafing and leaving me to work. https://player.vimeo.com/video/583589445?badge=0&autopause=0&player_id=0&app_id=58479 Let's … Continue reading It Never Ends
