Daily Distractions

Daily Distractions

Need a little a distraction from reality? Here is an unpolished collection the weird, the silly and the sometimes-serious at Wild Dingo. It's a blog about nothing, yet about everything.  You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll even learn something. But this is not a writing sample. It's just a place to kick back and crack open a cool Core's 16-ouncer and lose yourself in the kooky. For my professional pieces, see my portfolio.

Juicy's Hi-Jinks

"I'm just a girl, sitting in front of her mommy, asking her to walkies me." Oi. It's been a whirlwind few weeks. Over Memorial Day weekend,  Juno told Mr. Wild Dingo, nay, she demanded Mr. Wild Dingo to give her the once over that he normally does every day. He feels around for foxtails, bumps […]

Happy Loki-Versary!

Happy Anniversary to our best friend! Eleven years ago, on Memorial Day weekend, we made that big drive up to San Francisco to meet you. I'll never forget what went through my head as you barked your first words at us. While you scared the bejesus out of me with your bravado I saw deep […]

Searching for Something

"Where is it? Where did the weekend go?" Ever find yourself lost? I know it's a random question. I mean, lost, in terms of where you fit in the world. This is a question that hounds both Loki and me.

It's Friday I'm In Love

Lately, I've had a bit of anxiety over the pups. They are both fine and quite healthy for seniors. They don't act much like seniors. They still demand their daily walks and adventures. I'm convinced daily exercise is what keeps them spry.  The problem is me. I'm the one who aged much faster than they […]

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Super-Juice!

Our mighty superhero scans the hillside for nefarious squirrels. There will be no evil-doers on her watch!  Pack your acorns rodents and move on. As soon as her spa treatment is finished, so shall any interlopers be.

A Dog's Serendipity

"Hi, Pop! I see woo has bacon-n-eggs! I like bacon-n-eggs too!" Don't worry readers. We recognize this thinly-veiled threat. Second breakfast was served to the husky acknowledging such a happy coincidence. After all, we value our shoes. "Had bacon-n-eggs. Must rest." Life is hard. So very hard, for the husky.

Looking Back

"Princess, do woo ever look back at the path woo took wondering if woo missed the scent of a nearby bunny?" "Why look back, Daddy-O? Been there, done that, bought the harness. I'm all about the bunnies and squirrels in the here and now!"

I Can Break Anything if I Set My Mind to It

Notice anything, readers? Ah! I couldn't pull the wool over your eyes. Wild Dingo had little face-lift. I spent a long time getting up close with the inner working of my WordPress website this year. If you know even a little about WordPress, you can understand how giving your site a face lift after 8 […]

Seventeen

Happy Anniversary to my husband and best friend. Seventeen years together. Ten of those years chronically sick. Five of them an expensive roller coaster ride. Thank dog we were both emotionally and financially fit before it all began. Even in my recovery, he continues to help me learn how to be a normal person again. […]

Back to Forward

Once upon a time, there was a boy who married a girl who worked for herself. This was an attractive feature to the boy as he was a bit older than girl. It meant that he could potentially retire early on her income. It was a good plan. Even the girl thought so because she […]

Why I Left Social Media

I've been internet-quiet these days. Since I "woke up" from the Lyme-induced fugue state I've been in for 5 years, I caught up with the news to discover Facebook not only contributed to the election chaos in our own country, but in 2 other countries as well, causing a rise of hatred and violence through […]

A Hummingbird Walks into a Bar. . .

An Anna's, a Ruby-throated, and an Allen's Hummingbird walk into a bar. The Anna asks, "Who's that strange fella?" The Ruby-throated said, "I donno, but lemme at him! Imma gonna buzz him in pieces!" The Allen's said, "Whatevs." I know. It's not a brilliant joke. I hope the pictures below make up for it.

Stolen Time

Mr. Wild Dingo says, "The best time is stolen time." So we stole an extra hour at lunch for some shenanigans in Santa Cruz. Lunchtime Shenanigans from Julie Starling on Vimeo. Not too shabby for 11 and 12 year old pups, huh? PS. Dear readers, I know you've been wondering where we've all been. We're […]

Alarm Cracker

Today I woke to The Cracker and Coyotes belting out a cool, hip tune to the beat of a firetruck caravan. It must be Tuesday. Except that it's Monday.

The Canicular Season is Here

"Woo know: never to bother a husky while she's cooling her pawsies during the canicular season, mom!" Hey readers, it's July 2! Did you notice that Merrium Webster's word of the day? That's right! canicular comes form the latin word canicula, which means "small dog." But there's more to this story involving the Roman mythological […]

Bewooty!

We met this bi-eyed bewooty today at the beach today! Her name is Katinka and she's barely 2 years old. Incredibly tolerant, Loki just chilled as she flirted shamelessly with the cracker, trying to steal a kiss or give him a tap on the snooter.

Heart Attacks and Money Pits

If you ask me, a Siberian husky's main goals in life are to give you regular heart attacks and a spend all your money.  Juno is not just achieving her goals, but blowing past them, leaving them in the dust and me and Mr. Wild Dingo, barely alive from regular heart attacks and broke. This is […]

Happy Loki-versary!

Happy Gotcha Day to our best friend and family member. You had a ruff start in life. Numerous families. Nobody understood you. For the first five or six years, we sensed you were always wondering when, not if, you would be kicked out. Eleven years later, you're still with us. "They" told me to give […]
