indi

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="120.0"] 1618709-1200944-thumbnail.jpg[/caption] i think in every multiple dog household there is a dog everyone loves to hate. indi is ours – we all revel in giving her flack. when i begin posting videos (coming soon – for now try to contain your excitement), i would estimate that at least 75% will involve indi being dragged, chewed, humped or otherwise mauled in a very loving fashion. lest you develop concern for indi, keep in mind she has a way of...

the hairy eyeball

by | Wednesday, December 5, 2007 |

instilling fear in allhairy eyeball, noun: a glance made with partially lowered eyelids. this usually indicates suspicion or hostility but may signal other emotions too. in wilson’s case, hostility is the only emotion. the dog standing over wilson (aka “the wiz”) is reilley, a very large wolfhound…not worth a second thought to all 10 lbs of the wiz. the second after this picture was snapped, reilley caught the wrath of heck for the sin of merely looking at...

the superior species

this was the scene on our deck this weekend while dave & i were fastidiously hanging holiday lights. they’re relaxing…we’re working – and they say we're the smarter species....

sir owney

by | Thursday, November 15, 2007 |

owney is a once in a lifetime dog – he’s my personal buddha. we rescued him from a crappy situation – he had been purchased as a puppy to be breeding stock but developed an underbite and his owner had no use for him.    fortunately the guy contacted me and asked me to take him – done deal. he is truly one of the greatest beings - i don’t say this in a “he’s my favorite dog” kind of way – i say this in an “i aspire to be...

the possibilities are endless

when dave or i mention how many dogs we have, more often than not, the response is “i would have that many if i could.”  guess what people, you can.  it takes a little change of lifestyle, of course, but you too can make it happen. we have lived in a smaller house with ¼ acre yard and a larger house with 5 acres with the same amount of dogs. the main difference i see is with the ¼ acre yard you work to keep weight off and with the 5 acres you...

what's the deal???

by | Thursday, November 8, 2007 |

what is it about dogs and the phone?  not when it rings...once it's at your ear.  apparently a phone to the ear is the international sign for bark, and bark loudly.  because we work with 14 dogs, we face this problem constantly. essentially the office belongs to the dogs while we are stuck running for the closet as soon as we answer the phone. we’re thinking of moving our computers in there…of course then that’s where the dogs will have to be. ...

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="120.0"] 1618709-1132991-thumbnail.jpg[/caption] garcia & demeter are the head bitches here...and i don't mean that in a kind way - they're total bitches who think they are the schizzle.  they are a formidable team and are rarely found separately.  their complete disdain for other dogs actually turns to adoration for humans.  they are now the house elders and not letting anyone forget it.  this picture was taken when they were...
