Retaliations of A Pissed Off Poodle

Leko and I took a ride out to my parents’ house today. I have a strap that attaches his harness to the seat belt for safety. If it was up to him, he would ditch the safety belt and freely romp around in the car and look out the windows.A few minutes into our trip, he became very mad at me because he wanted to sit on my lap....more

Automatic Doors Are Fun!

Leko LOVES to go shopping, and what pup wouldn’t knowing they were about to be spoiled with new toys and treats?After repeatedly pestering my hubby to fill up with his Kong Bone, Mike discovered we were out of his favorite peanut butter Kong Stuffers. Uh oh! Our pup is so spoiled that Mike whisked him off to Petsmart to pick up some refills before he had to go to work.....Continue Reading...more

Dog DNA Test: Our Beagle-Hound Is a Poodle

When I finally caved and agreed TW and Elly could have a dog for their birthday last year what it really meant was they could have a dog that I liked as much, if not more, than they did and I have a thing for beagles. So while I might have agreed to another dog, (and I would have), I was leaning heavily toward something that was "beagle-like" -- and that's how we ended up with Skeeter Bess....more

You are my hero

With time to waste, I slowly wandered around the airport, pumpkin spice latte in hand.  Out of the corner of my eye, I saw them.  I couldn’t help myself.  I had to stop, turn my head and stare…. He was beyond handsome.  He was truly beautiful. He walked with purpose, determined.  He was clearly focused.  His gait didn’t sway.  He walked perfectly straight.  He didn’t dare leave his companion’s side, not even for a second. ...more

Hot Dawg!!

As I mentioned in an earlier post,  I had met someone on, and  things were going along pretty well with M and myself.  I was amazed at how much we had in common.  We both liked sauerkraut on our hot dogs and anchovies on our pizzas.  I felt like from there we were pretty much home free.  We had found our soul mates!  I mean really, how weird is it to find someone who likes anchovies on their pizza?  A lot of Domino's don't even offer anchovies on their pizzas.  So...obviously we were meant to be together and nothing could stop us now....more
