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 newt to...

this is our sweet, handsome, soft as cotton, huggable benny... and this is benny's preferred look... yes people that is what you think it is (clearly phineus doesn't want to believe it either). benny likes to what we refer to as "put on a poop suit" as often as he can, usually at least once a week. sheila e's life ours is not!...
