we call her twinkletoes

by | Saturday, September 12, 2009 |

speck's been having a problem hitting her mark (the mark being her food bowl) lately.  her rotund body and short legs do not work aerodynamically in her favor and her braking ability is severely limited by her girth.  what she is immensely successful at is making us laugh.  she's our little rodeo clown parodying a cattle dog.   [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjgbTBvVc7Y&hl=en&fs=1&]

so murray's getting up there in years - his hearing is all but gone and he walks like he's been through the desert on a horse with no name but man, oh man he can chew a bone with the best of 'em.  i've said it before but i'll say it again - this dog kills me...i adore him.

i apologize in advance for what is about to be a personal post but i’ve got a forum and i’m using it. today is a big day in the history of my life – fifteen years ago dave & i entered into our life together. when i think back fifteen years and wonder if i could have imagined what our life together would become the answer is a resounding “no.” were i able to imagine this life i would have wanted to get right to it and that would have yielded a different result....

our life seems to move pretty fast and there's usually a lot to be accomplished on any given day. our nights fill up pretty quickly as well, what with dave's band practices, errands, grocery shopping, hanging out with friends & family, and appointments. this week we had a bunch of errands to do and last night was the only night we had available so we planned to go out after we finished work and fed the dogs. easy breezy covergirl, right…um, actually wrong…our little fletcher...

just when we think we know who dooley is more of him makes itself known. of late he has become enamored of carley and likes to spend his waking hours unrelentingly trying to get her to chase him: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WznFE7UaHk&hl=en&fs=1&] as much as he enjoys this game inside it's not nearly as enjoyable when it extends outside - thats a little more energy than he likes to part with. he's good for one lap around and then it's right to the door: [youtube https://www.youtube...

perspective

i am totally enamored of dogs and their amazing spirit and spunk. the way our dogs go through what is the monotony of each day is quite astounding to me. they are living a life essentially straight out of groundhog day and meet each day with the same amount of enthusiasm as the day before. case in point: we feed our dogs twice a day every day, never once do these dogs not eat twice a day, and they eat the same thing at each of those two meals. and yet every time we feed them it’s like...

• we believe in rescue dogs and spay + neuter programs
• we believe in hemp, conservation, and the pursuit of lessening our footprint on the earth
• we believe in the commitment, love and boundless spirit of dogs
