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...

it's been so beautiful here in nashville the past few weeks. i love this time of year when we can leave all the doors of the house open and enjoy the outside. the dogs have been partaking in the enjoyment aplenty. here's watson and carly trying to get the best of fletcher but as he proves you can't take a good guy down. you also get a small taste of jewel doing what jewel does best - she likes to bark a good bit of her day away (not so surprising she was returned to the shelter twice before we...

this is the prelude to the eruption of crazy that ensues when these two "play" (it quite literally makes the house shake)...but the prelude, ah the prelude, is lovely.

dear gravy is benny talkative, which is ironic since he can't hear a blessed thing, and i use the word talkative because it really does seem like he's just chattering away. for some reason his mutterings ring as less annoying than just all-out barking but it does have a way of breaking you down eventually.
i gotta give it up to violet - i would have let him have the bone just to shut him up....

violet had her surgery and yesterday she had her 3-week follow-up where we found out that while she’s healing well she will definitely not have a fully functional leg, although it could prove helpful for balance and some other leg-centric activities. the biggest issue is that violet seems to have written the leg off completely – won’t use it, won’t look at it, won’t have nothing to do with it, to the point that she many times lets it drag behind her and the sores and ground-down nails that...

we got a call the other day from an acquaintance who had “rescued” a dog from a bad situation and needed some help figuring out what to do. unfortunately “the dog” had a broken leg and now the rescuers had had her in their care for a week without providing any care for the leg. not knowing what else to do and realizing that this dog needed help we told them to take her to our vet the next day and we would pay to find out what exactly was wrong with the leg...
