this video cracks me up for two reasons: (1) watson & jewel are the two slowest moving dogs we have and when they play it looks like it's in slow motion (it can actually be sleep inducing) and (2) because everyone else was outside it seems like jewel decided to use this alone time with watson to work on some new moves, although she remains true to the good ole "grab a back leg" move.

i had a game when i was a kid* called medical monopoly (you can probably guess how cool i was just from that sentence alone). basically you got a card with symptoms and had to correctly diagnose the condition to move ahead...i know, totally awesome, right? so today i’m offering up a little twist – are you ready to play veterinary monopoly? here’s your symptoms: large amount of arterial blood from penis
no visible marks
several hours post-seizure ...

if i were so inclined i could write a blog entitled “what carly did wrong” and literally have enough material to post daily. i’d use this photo as the banner… having said that i feel i should also tell you that i adore the bejinkles out of her…as bad as she is she is exactly equally as fantastic. among her two most redeeming qualities are she’s about the sweetest thing going on four legs and she is the most amazing welcome wagon president our family could have. this is some footage of slater’s...

i’m so, so happy to announce that violet has officially been adopted. her trainers, nathan & bridget from k9 logics, have been amazingly kind enough to foster her over the last year and she’s been having a ball playing with all the dogs that come to their daycare. being the amazing little lady that she is she helped a very timid pit bull daycamper come out of her shell and that dog’s owner decided that violet was a keeper. violet now gets to spend her days with her new sister...

tuesday was not a good day and it turned into an even worse 48 hours. i did a moronic thing and left some just washed grapes in the sink to dry…and let the dogs in and forgot about the grapes. cue doom music, enter carly. i came into the kitchen a short time later to find carly standing over some little tell-tale water marks on the floor, saw a few chewed stems and at first thought “oh carly” and then “oooh carly” (which doesn’t look ...

yesterday dave & i helped murray along to his next journey. i'm so thankful he's no longer in pain and feel very fortunate to have had him in my life. if you read this blog then you know what murray meant to me and will understand that i can't really say anything more right now. when i took this picture years ago i titled it "heaven sent murray" so it seems very fitting now... ...

when we lost kody seven years ago (how has it been that long ago) he was two days shy of his 15th birthday and since then we have not had a dog live long enough to celebrate that milestone. although i do not want to disparage him, there’s a slight possibility that kody put a spell on us to ensure no one outlives his lifespan. i have no doubt this spell was not malicious, however, it has caused me quite a bit of pain and worry and i’ve been ready to find some eye of...
