Who Does Your Dog Look Like?

Who Does Your Dog Look Like?

Some people look like their dogs. Some dogs look like people. Since Haley started going gray in the face, she reminds me of a certain 70’s rocker. I kind of hate seeing all that gray but she’s got some new character and designs on her face that look pretty cool on a senior lady and she still has the energy … Read More

Do Dogs Get Spring Fever?

Do Dogs Get Spring Fever?

How do you know when spring is about to arrive? Here in the Midwest, it’s been a long, cold winter and I’ve been searching for signs of life under all this white stuff covering the ground, but I haven’t seen a Grape Hyacinth or Daffodil bulb spouting through the soil yet. Then it happened! I got the official word yesterday … Read More

Do Dogs Barter? – Trading Toys for Treats

Do Dogs Barter?

Something odd happened not too long ago that made me feel pretty unobservant as a dog owner and left me intrigued about my dog’s behavior.
