i think we need somebody out there to remind us why we sleep (or try to) with 16 dogs in our bedroom. lately we’ve been lacking in the z department due to two culprits. the first is violet who is not a fan of her cage and starts whining anywhere from 2:30 am to 6:00 am. as puppies go she’s been fantastic, so good in fact we tend to forget she’s a puppy…she definitely seems to be an old soul. she pretty much does what she wants and we feel like...

violet had her surgery and yesterday she had her 3-week follow-up where we found out that while she’s healing well she will definitely not have a fully functional leg, although it could prove helpful for balance and some other leg-centric activities. the biggest issue is that violet seems to have written the leg off completely – won’t use it, won’t look at it, won’t have nothing to do with it, to the point that she many times lets it drag behind her and the sores and ground-down nails that...

we got a call the other day from an acquaintance who had “rescued” a dog from a bad situation and needed some help figuring out what to do. unfortunately “the dog” had a broken leg and now the rescuers had had her in their care for a week without providing any care for the leg. not knowing what else to do and realizing that this dog needed help we told them to take her to our vet the next day and we would pay to find out what exactly was wrong with the leg...

growing up we always had a kitchen witch in our kitchen (and if your kitchen witch resides anywhere other than the kitchen you’ve got problems) and it’s an odd superstition that i’ve carried into adulthood. for the last decade or so our kitchen witch has been an ozzy osbourne figure, although the only way you would know it was supposed to be ozzy is because the packaging said so. i don’t know if there are rules as to what makes an official kitchen witch but...

i know i've been light on the posting of late but at this point in the summer the dogs do little interesting beyond panting and sleeping, although i have managed to capture benny & carly in action a few times... hope you're all enjoying your summer and having a wonderful holiday weekend. ...

a few years ago i had a dream realized when we set up our non-profit, kody’s fund. i have always wanted to have a non-profit to help animals in some way and earthdog provided the perfect opening. kody’s fund was set up to fund spay & neuter programs and is the recipient of 10% of earthdog’s profits. over the years we have been able to facilitate programs that have led to many dogs & cats being spayed & neutered. the main recipient of our...

most evenings after work we go out to seemingly play with the dogs, although usually there's more sitting than playing going on. this picture tickles the crap out of me...watson's such an unlikely ham.
