you have to call aspca poison control and the conversation goes something like this:poison control: “what’s the issue?”me: “my dog ate my progesterone pills.”poison control: “your birth control?”me: “no, straight progesterone…i’m old.”the subtitle to this post is: carly, carly, carly (part infinity). the other day i got my progesterone prescription in the mail and as soon as i opened it i thought to myself “must put away” so i headed to our bathroom to do just that. i made it as far as placing...

carly's life has gotten a big upgrade of late; first with estelle and more recently (and fervently) with the addition of merlin. she and merlin are developing a fantastic relationship and i couldn't be happier. i was filming them the other night and captured pure magic that i'm not ashamed to say had me bawling: ...

so stella seems to have succeeded where odin* couldn't - slowly but surely she and carly are building a solid relationship. for the first time in really what’s been well over a year carly seems happy and my heart feels a ton lighter…can i get a woot woot? there’s a strange phenomenon going on here. historically the idea of adding a new dog always came with equal parts excitement and apprehension. there was always some fear of the chaos that would ensue - a...

you might remember last september we adopted odin to
hopefully be a buddy for carly and get her out of her depression. for carly odin turned out to be a bust
since he’s unwilling to play with anyone who’s larger than him. that being said, odin is the greatest, most loving and congenial guy
and he is unanimously adored here - he just wasn’t a fit for carly. unfortunately after losing dooley, her
running partner, carly seemed to go deeper into depression. for the past few...

i bet if you did a survey of pet owners exactly half would
say they allow their pets on the furniture and the other half would say they don’t. growing up our family was on the “don’t” side which essentially led to me
spending my childhood on the floor.
solely for this reason as an adult i’ve always been firmly on the “do”
side. we probably have more couches and chairs than the average
household. if there’s a nook or a cranny where a soft, upholstered body-holder

it seems the odin effect has yet to take hold of carly...although he's got the whole family smitten. in the midst of baking 300 mini-cupcakes for the benefit we're hosting tomorrow night...did i mention we're hosting a benefit tomorrow night? if you missed that please check out the website and consider joining us if you're local - it's all to benefit spay & neuter in middle tennessee and it should be a blast!

zig’s been with us about a month now and i can’t believe how much i adore the little monkey. he is quickly becoming universally adored by everyone in the family, barring a few hanger-oners to aloofness. he even turned benny, who seemingly thought he should remain the baby of the family and no one should come in after him but he’s begrudgingly accepted zig. he’s still doing horribly with housetraining (he’ll get there) and is very timid with new people and things but he’s coming along by leaps...
