this is our sweet, handsome, soft as cotton, huggable benny... and this is benny's preferred look... yes people that is what you think it is (clearly phineus doesn't want to believe it either). benny likes to what we refer to as "put on a poop suit" as often as he can, usually at least once a week. sheila e's life ours is not!...

a little over 3 years ago i travelled to michigan to pick up a mess of a dog who has, as layer after layer has been removed, revealed himself to be an amazing being. flanagan’s previous “owners” kept him tranquilized 24-7 and in various other ways medicinally altered his brain chemistry and then they dropped him in a kill shelter with no meds. you can read about our first meeting and journey home here. flanagan turned out to be one of the toughest to get through to and longest to...

this post is the kind i don’t like…one with bad news that i hate to impart. it is with heavy hearts that dave & i have come to the sad fact that we need to find violet a new loving family. over the past six weeks or so she developed an issue with watson and it is only getting worse. we sent her to an amazing trainer, nathan, for board and train for a few weeks, hoping for at the least a chilling out period and at best a solution to our problem. while she...
