Sir Buckethead the Gallant

By | December 27, 2017

After they year this has been, I’ve held off on posting about the new dog we got in August until I was sure he was going to stay. After the nightmare that was the corgiador, I was a little gun shy and I didn’t want to jinx things. But this little (ha!) pound puppy has… Read More »

The Dog That Wasn’t

By | May 25, 2017

Since Rocko passed I’ve been on the hunt for another dog to keep Shiva company. We’d thought we found the perfect mutt in the Corgiador, but the adorkable cuteness hid a dog with significant issues. The rescue initially said he was crate trained, housebroken, and had issues with other dominant dogs, but was fine with outdoor… Read More »

Behold, The Corgiador! (Laborgi? Corador? Labradorgi?)

By | May 8, 2017

I was planning on getting lots of writing and artwork done this weekend… and then there was dog! And while I did get some things done, it pretty much just devolved into ‘loving on the new dog’ once the rescue decided we’d make a good home for him. On that note, Shout out to Misfit… Read More »

So Long Corgiboy, I’ll Miss You…

By | February 6, 2017

A Eulogy for a HoundDoggie

By | September 14, 2015

Back in 2004 a very rowdy shepherd mix puppy made her way into our lives and on Saturday she quietly left us again. You never know quite what you are going to get when you bring home a pound puppy, but we won the SPCA lotto with Ginger. She might have been a lovable bundle… Read More »

An Ode To A Cat

By | December 11, 2011

Back in 1995 a very small kitten made her way into my life and yesterday she quietly left me again. I can never repay Dex for all those wonderful years, For the purrs and the bitchy maos, For the shoulder perching sessions and helpful napping on my mouse-hand when I played computer games,

Shiva daPuppy! Can she chew it? Shiva daPuppy! Yes she can! Cords, shoes and laptops, And glasses too. Plastic and cardboard, Bed frames, woo! Things you can chew oh so much fun. Small puppy teeth, They get the job done. Shiva daPuppy! Can she chew it? Shiva daPuppy! Yes she can! Paper and books, Pencils… Read More »

I do not have dogs…

By | June 27, 2006

… I have mental disorders with fur. *headdesk* Ginger is now offically the GDD (God Dammed Doggie) and Shiva has taken her rightful place as the GDHD (God Dammed Hyperactive Doggie). I thinking about loaning them out for some poor vet student’s thesis. o_O;;
