  you may not be able to tell what this photo is at first glance but i'll give you a hint - i'm lucky it didn't buckle under the weight. did ya guess? it's speck on my windshield - i had to abandon my car where it was halfway up the driveway so as not to injure the little shit...not that she deserves that much respect!...

i’m happy to announce there is a new member of the earthdog pack.  he hails from georgia where he was pulled from a kill shelter and brought to nashville by a wonderful rescue group.  i became aware of him and fell in love with him at first sight.  when i found out he was deaf it was clear to me he belonged here.  without further ado i present benny… holy crap, people, believe me when i say this is the most fantastic puppy.  we’ve raised many, many...

look who's coming to dinner

by | Thursday, March 18, 2010 |

my parents came over for dinner the other night (for a delicious vegan meal) and flanagan really enjoyed their company.  this probably shouldn’t be acceptable behavior at the dinner table but we tend to allow flanagan to get away with things he really shouldn’t.  really the one in this picture in need of discipline is my mother for petting him at the table…sheesh.    ...

dave started feeding the koi again the other day (they don’t eat in cold weather) and it seems speck found herself another food source.  it should be noted that speck is of sizable girth and is no need of further food, especially that which is stolen from the mouths of fish.  the beginning part of the video was shot by dave from inside the house and right after he finished shooting speck apparently took a header into the pond.  we deduced this from two things:  a...

stick with me

by | Sunday, March 14, 2010 |

so it would seem i’ve been neglecting this blog but i’m asking that you hang in there with me.  i don’t seem to be emerging from my funk as quickly as i would have hoped and whatever creative juices i might have had in the past have seemingly dried up.  i think of things i’d like to let you know about but then i can’t seem to summon up the energy to actually get them down in print and then the moment is gone.  i’ve got a few things i’d...

dear december, don't let the door hit you on the way out

by | Saturday, February 6, 2010 |

not to be crass but december 2009 can go suck it - i have never experienced such a shit sandwich of a month as december 2009 in my life.  sadly it wasn't even the type of crappy month that once you get past it you can look back and laugh - it was chock full of "only time will heal" moments.  after demeter's diagnosis and the loss of astrid i couldn't shake that insipid "bad things happen in threes" idea and i really wish i was able to.  the day after christmas we were enjoying...

practice run

by | Saturday, February 6, 2010 |

you know how motocross riders will test new tricks in a foam pit first so they don't kill themselves...dooley takes this idea of safety first to the extreme. [youtube] can you imagine his look of "i told you so" if one of us gets hurt while running?...
