barking up the wrong tree

by | Tuesday, April 20, 2010 |

i haven't posted about benny in a while through no fault of his own - i've got a ton of video that i need to get edited so stay tuned for that.  he continues to be an amazing little man.  this is just a quick clip illustrating that regardless of how adorable he is indi is still not interested in his antics (and that he can be clumsy).

reilley loves to ride in my car and i've been promising him for weeks i'd take him for a ride. unfortunately i didn't have the foresight to take him somewhere before last week when he had a vet appointment and when the time came for us to leave he was beside himself with joy...until we arrived at the vet. to add insult to injury, because we very rarely go to the vet with just one dog, he had to share his car ride with jewel which really cramped his style. today when lunchtime came around and...

crazy people knocking

we just had someone leave a message at earthdog because they had seen our "petfinder" page. from the message it seems that our "petfinder" page is actually the our crew page where we have pics & blurbs about our dogs (clearly marked as our dogs). anywho, she is apparently very interested in adopting carly because she's had terriers before?? she lives on a very large houseboat and is looking for a dog she can walk with every day. i briefly considered sending the 110-lb feral beast to the woman...

  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 - freaking.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...

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

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...
