bound together

by | Friday, March 21, 2014 |

i don’t know if this is the case in other families with a lot of dogs but we seem to be a very tight knit family…pretty much on top of each other 24/7.  there’s a few who like their own space; fletcher, phineus, indi and jewel; but for the most part whether we like it or not we’re in very close proximity to each other at all times. generally i’m a fan of this family dynamic but there are times when trying to accomplish certain things it can become cumbersome.  the dogs generally...

this post has been ruminating in my head for a while and i haven’t been sure whether i should share it or not…whether anyone would care or not.  in an effort to lift the veil on my life what you’re about to read is a) likely to be a bit of a jumbled mess and b) painfully honest but it’s where i currently am and i’m putting it out there - if you decide to continue reading you’ve been warned.  i’m issuing my apologies up front for the whining and complaining and then i’m letting it...

scientific confirmation that dogs are heavy sleepers

a few months ago when i asked what content you would like to see here the thing i heard the most was more photos and video of dave & i with the dogs and more of our daily life. i’m working on some “a day in the life” posts so they’ll be forthcoming but the photos and videos are a little harder because we have failed completely at teaching any of these dogs to use a camera so that leaves only dave or i in that capacity. the video bio we shot for earthdog this summer has a little bit of that so...
