there is an adage in our house which very simply states every time we think we’ve seen it all we haven’t. it has always proven true that each dog that comes into this house will at one point or another do something unique that amazes, amuses, and/or disgusts us. you would think at some point this phenomenon would run its course and there would be nothing new but you my friend would be wrong. for some reason i seem to be constantly amazed at the stream of odd behaviors these mutts...

i’m not sure if dooley overshot his landing, didn’t think head placement through or just doesn’t have the sense he needs but this was clearly not a well thought out resting spot. other than his failure to realize everyone needs a little elbow room, dooley's come a long way in the few months we’ve had him and he’s coming out of his shell more and more – he’s a gem. i’ve got some videos to edit that demonstrate his unshelling...coming soon! ...

today dave & i did our civic duty for tn’s humane lobby day. we went to “the hill” and met with our state representative and state senator to get their support on a puppy mill bill and an animal fighting bill. dave was our spokesperson for both meetings and did a bang up job – to quote him “i opened up my mouth and hoped words came out in an order that made sense.” it was a very daunting experience but even i was able to sputter some words out.

many years ago when our dog count had reached 5 sleeping soundly became an issue and dave was pretty adamant about finding some way to keep the dogs off the bed. the simplest solution seemed to be raising the bed, and after we did this, i had to admit the unencumbered sleeping was quite a treat. over the years we have designed and built several beds, which always proved to be a bit tricky, after all suspending a large piece of furniture that two people will be sleeping on does present its...

okay, so this is yet another post specific to wolfhounds and their quite “special” nature (hereto forward referred to as “pathetic”). in our living space we have not one, not two but five couches (two of them being large sectionals) that are in use pretty much 24-7 and yet when dave & i want to sit down we still have to fight for a few square inches. this is due pretty much wholely to the pathetic wolfhounds. i’ve said before that the wolfhounds will always be...

i’ve mentioned before carly’s current humping phase (see video here) and how unpleasant it is but yesterday she took it to a new level, or maybe the usual level but with pain involved. i was bestowing her with some pets and turned around to continue work when she jumped on my back and started humping me. as i turned to try to extract her from my body she clocked the hell out of my nose. i'm not even sure how, it may have involved flailing paws but couldn't tell you for sure. copious...
