dieciséis

by | Friday, December 26, 2008 |

a few months ago (actually at the exact time i was bringing carly home) i got an email from an old acquaintance and the subject line was “do you want an irish wolfhound?” if you want me to pay attention to an email that’s a great subject line to use, by the way. oddly, though, dave & i were a bit overwhelmed with the thought of adding carly, which took our number to an all-time high of 15, and actually i didn’t particularly want an irish wolfhound. i mean i’ll...

accumulation

by | Wednesday, December 17, 2008 |

last week we had a rare snowfall with some accumulation here in nashville. the evening it actually snowed dave & i were out doing some christmas shopping and, because we’re not that smart, didn’t hurry home as soon as it started snowing. we paid for that lack of intelligence dearly – it took us 2 hours to travel 5 miles home (that inch of snow we got was treacherous to nashville drivers). the next morning dave took the opportunity to get some great shots of the...

i was out last sun when dave emailed this photo of flanagan and the teaser that he had something funny to show me. the videos below are what ensued...     https://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=-1782462117470842587&hl=en&fs=true and this... https://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=7747247166184481264&hl=en&fs=true can i just say i adore this dog.  i wish he never had to face the abuse he did to get him here but i will be forever grateful that we...

dark days

by | Thursday, November 20, 2008 |

for the last two years we've been in a battle with wilson's immune mediated disease and the last year has been spent in a desperate effort to retain as much of wil's eyesight as we possibly could once his disease manifested in optic neuritis. we apparently lost the battle this week as wilson's world has gone black - we've got him on a huge dose of prednisone as a last ditch effort to get back the little sight he had but at this moment it's not looking good. wilson has the spirit of a dog...

speck is our resident comedian - she definately keeps us laughing (sometimes with her and other times at her)!

stuff it

by | Tuesday, November 11, 2008 |

one of the components of our bed stuffing is a recycled poly-cotton that is delivered to us in a very tightly bound 700-lb block of hell.  in the old days dave and i would single-handedly have to figure out how to maneuver this fat chunk thing into a very small hallway where we actually stuffed the beds.  fortunately that is no longer the case and neither one of us suffered any hernias.  the bed stuffing now takes place in a separate building and the block of “fuzz”...

following the feeble

zander’s found an apprentice for his crazy moves. https://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=2640021195621396665&hl=en&fs=true indi & jewel are my favorite part - they do not take their eyes off the ball even with the extreme commotion going on next to them.  p.s. also, as always, please ignore my talking and especially my laugh....

carly update

by | Tuesday, October 14, 2008 |

carly’s been here for almost 3 weeks and she’s fantabulous!! she, probably more than anyone else, came in quite easily and it’s as if she’s always been here, although it’s a tad bit noisier. she’s an 80-lb, 7-month-old, gangly, uncoordinated goofball who seems to be relishing her freedom from a cage. she fell fast in love with speck and flanagan, although together they don’t match her energy level. thankfully with very careful supervision she’s only destroyed a few things and peed inside only 2...
