I picked up petunia's for my mother, but forgot to take a photo of them before we gave them to her. BUT! I gave her some squash plants for her favorite type of squash. Buttercup, I think. I'd have to check the package. They were beginning to crawl out of my closet! For my mother-in-law … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day!
Up until now, the dog food brand we've been giving our puppers had avoided any of the hugely public lawsuits or failed testing. But... that's no longer true. There's a lawsuit regarding ridiculously high levels of lead in that dog food, and we're worried. There just isn't very much regulation in the dog food industry, … Continue reading Making Our Own Dog Food?
Sunday morning, we got a call from my parents - would my husband be available to drive with my dad and their dog Mariah down to Chicago to pick up a new dog from a rescue? Of course he said yes. So I puttered around the house while the drove down and went to bed … Continue reading My Parents’ New Dog or My Husband’s Biblical Adventure
A local rescue had a Puppy Pool Paddle on Saturday, and we went! What's a Puppy Pool Paddle? In short, they rent the local pool and invite dog owners to bring their fluffers, and then they let the dogs loose to play! Here's our boy, Tundra: He was SUPER well behaved and played so hard … Continue reading Puppy Pool Paddle!

And of course I don't include photos of anyone else without permission, so you don't get to see my husband. But doesn't Tundra look silly? He was having so much fun sloshing … Continue reading Tundra’s Water Pictures!
Our malamute, Tundra, ADORES playing with water. He splishes and splashes in the rain, and we have a kiddie pool we fill just for him. And when I water, he chases me around trying to eat the water coming out of the house. Loves it. We spent yesterday afternoon at my parents, down around the … Continue reading Tundra Loves Water
We had Tundra kenneled during our trip last week, and he always gets stressed, even though he loves the vet and the ladies. We guess it's because there's no one there at night. He paces and jumps on the fencing and tears up his feet, and he usually has some soft stool afterwards. It lasts … Continue reading Tundra’s Sick or How His Farts Drove Me Out of Bed at Midnight
There's a fair amount of excitement in our life right now. My husband is looking at replacing his 1997 Subaru Legacy with something a great deal newer... by which I mean a 2001 Legacy or Outback. So he has been watching Craigslist and carefully poring over listings. We're in the rare situation where the old … Continue reading New Cars and New Puppers
So, today was a quiet day, and our dog was dozing. We were sitting at our computers doing computer things (and writing), when our dog perked up and ran to the door. He started bouncing around and gave that characteristic snowdog 'Wooooo!', so we got up to check. One of our neighbors' Husky and German … Continue reading Here, Doggy, Doggy!
I mentioned that my dad had come over to look at our plumbing. Well, what I didn't mention is that he brought my mom's retired service dog with him so she could get out of the house. Her best buddy, Jacob, recently died (mentioned his health issues here), and she would have been left home … Continue reading High Point of My Dog’s Day
