Blah Blah Blah Weather, Blah Blah Blah Dogs

I’m afraid winter is over. I really dislike spring here, at least early spring. I am expecting this one to be particularly unpleasant, since we had record breaking snowfall this winter. Things turn into such a gross, shoe sucking, muddy mess. Flooding closes some bridges and fucks up traffic. I have to clean muddy paw prints off of the floor daily, and there are still muddy paw prints on the floor.... read more

Indy found her inner husky, but now it’s coming out in clumps

Indy is a rescue dog. She is at the very least a husky/shepherd mix, and might have some other stuff thrown in. She has a GSD nose, stance and coloration, and a husky coat and tail.

We even managed to get up to the patch without... read more

In Search of a Punk Rock Chicken Toy

Indy came to live with us in the fall of 1995. She is an unusual dog in many ways, and I have no idea if she was born that way or whether the unfortunate occurrences of her early life caused it, or it is a mixture of both. We got her from a rescue when she was a puppy. She had been turned over because the landlord had told them, either she went or they would be evicted.
