slumdog millionaires

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...

oh my nose!

by | Thursday, February 12, 2009 |

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...

murray update

by | Monday, February 9, 2009 |

for the last 8 months i’ve been taking murray for chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture and it has given him a quality of life that wasn’t predicted upon his original diagnosis. if you told me a year ago that murray would be receiving such care i would have guffawed right in your face. we’ve had murray since he was 4 weeks old and not once have we been able to take him to the vet without first slipping him a mickey. the sedation is not necessary to stop murray from being...

maybe we should we call him shorty

dooley is well on his way to being a colella pack member - he’s taking his time at it – clearly he knows slow and steady wins the race. he’s exhibiting two laughable qualities; the first being that he’s either scared of speck or absolutely repulsed by her (neither of which he could be blamed for). speck is of the mind that everyone loves her (which, as much as i hate to admit it, seems to be the case) and dooley is not left out of this group.  this means he...

paula abdul's got nothing on them

many times when speck & carly play it looks like a finely choreographed fight scene from a movie - or a very complex capoeira battle.  oh, and in case you're wondering speck's voice is still horrendous!

where my peeps at?

if you’ve never experienced the true nature of a wolfhound then i should let you in on something – they’re pathetic. from what i can discern woefulness and a huge heart seem to be the main components of a wolfhound – throw in some internal organs and fuzz and you’re there. how does this piteousness exhibit itself you may ask? first and foremost, wherever you are and whatever you ‘re doing any wolfhound you have will be on the couch closest to all...
