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...

it probably won’t come as a surprise that i was not a fan of 2013 - we lost too many family members and things were overall too hard to feel bad about it’s passing. because i consider myself a positive person and would like to be bigger than 2013 would have me be i will say that i am grateful for the additions of estelle, merle and ronan to our family; for the ability to stay in the house that we love and that all of us are currently healthy. i’m feeling much more enthusiastic about 2014 and if...

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...

a while back dave got in his head that he wanted to do a promo video for earthdog. i eventually went along with it, kicking and screaming the whole way...

back in october (i’ve never claimed to be timely) we had the pleasure of being photographed by adrian hitt, an accomplished nashville pet photographer. i should start by mentioning that i absolutely hate having my picture taken - the hatred is alleviated only mildly when there’s a dog with me in the photograph. i’m finding i’m having to get used to it more and more as dave’s interest in photography increases but the idea of a “photography...
