Rudi… Whatever You’re Doing, Stop It Right Now!

(Illustration above found on Facebook.) I can’t say I’ve thought of texting our pups, but I suppose that’s merely a function of my age.  Calling, yes. We both work from home so are pretty much with the dogs all the time, except when there are outside appointments or meetings to attend.   Usually those meetings […]

Another Rainy Day…

Four dogs and non-stop rain = one whacked out Linda. ARGH!!! (Shhhhh… they’re all asleep now. I’m calming down…) And I think the nail bed on my big toe that was punctured by the foster pup peeling off on it, which caused me to drop Rudi, which gave Rudi the opportunity to tear off into […]

Noodle – Or, Mr Budro Is One Persistent Pup

Dinnertime.  Always a source of great excitement in our house, even back when we only had two dogs.  (Now we have three of our own, and usually have a foster pup as well.  Twice the dogs; four times the mealtime fun.) I filled the dog water bowl as I always do first, then started preparing […]

We don’t know much about Greta’s history; apparently she ended up […]

The Empty Buddy Belly

My Hubs, John, is so smaht… We just realized our Buddy (Mr Budro, Buddy Boo), the wirehaired dachshund, has started sneaking food from little Rudi, which explains why he is rapidly becoming Buddy Blimp again. It’s a matter of some concern, since dachshunds are especially prone to “the love that kills” i.e. overfeeding – and gaining […]

Hatchet Murderers After the Dogs? Nahhhh.

Dear Neighbors in our Homeowners Association, I know that what with the howling, squealing and frantic noises being emitted by our 3 dogs that you could mistakenly believe we are hatchet murdering them, or dismembering each one slowly and methodically. However, I assure you, this is not the case.  There is no need to track […]

Happy Birthday, Mr Budro

Happy 11th birthday, Mr Budro!  (Buddy, Buddy Boo, the Budster). Eight years ago, John adopted you via a rescue organization after you’d spent most of the first three years of your life in a crate, emotionally and physically abandoned every day by the two women who had brought you home with the broken promise to […]
