bound together

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...

carly's life has gotten a big upgrade of late; first with estelle and more recently (and fervently) with the addition of merlin.  she and merlin are developing a fantastic relationship and i couldn't be happier.  i was filming them the other night and captured pure magic that i'm not ashamed to say had me bawling: ...

monkey business

zig’s been with us about a month now and i can’t believe how much i adore the little monkey. he is quickly becoming universally adored by everyone in the family, barring a few hanger-oners to aloofness. he even turned benny, who seemingly thought he should remain the baby of the family and no one should come in after him but he’s begrudgingly accepted zig. he’s still doing horribly with housetraining (he’ll get there) and is very timid with new people and things but he’s coming along by leaps...

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.  [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9qOH5nFOaw&fs=1&hl=en_US] i gotta give it up to violet - i would have let him have the bone just to shut him up....
