Reading Time: 2 minutes Hello readers! I know. I know. Woo think I would furgit my favorite criminal's anniversary? Pshaw! Nefur!

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!

Reading Time: 2 minutes 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

Reading Time: 4 minutes 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 […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes Happy Gotchya 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 […]

Her Turn

Reading Time: 2 minutes Vets and vet techs who know the dramatics of huskies have always recognized Juno's unusually calm behavior whenever they examine her. If you poke her in a sore spot, she'll simply whimper and kiss your hand. Though she is stoic like the breed is known to be, she's not very vocal like huskies. This dog […]

Same Circus, Same Clowns

Reading Time: 1 minute Yup. We've been in this rodeo before. Over ten years now. It never gets old. Of course, the clown (unidentified, but we'll call him MWD) rewarding the criminal with cookies (seen in his hand) may have something to do with crime rates at Wild Dingo. I'm no sociological statistician--just the ringmaster at this circus.  I […]

Dear Diary, Nothing New Happened

Reading Time: 6 minutes If you were to take a peek into my teenage diary, you would find about 360 pages of "Dear diary, Nothing new happened today." The other 5 pages might read what I got for Christmas or a grade on a test and talk about how wildly unfair the teacher was.  Sadly, my teenage writer's block […]

It's Just Biology

Reading Time: 2 minutes First, a few weeks ago, Mr. Wild Dingo had the good fortune of getting to pull out an 18" tape worm from Loki's butt. It was stuck and Loki begged Mr. Wild Dingo to help him get it out. Yup, this is the glamorous life, Internet!  So both he and Juno got de-wormed. Where he […]

1 2 3 35

This blog began in 2005 with a silly press release about my dingo, Maggie and her nemesis, Monsieur Le Pew.  When Maggie passed, I rescued the cracker, Loki. To say that I was over my head with a real working dog is an understatement. So I did what every new dog owner does when they are in over their heads with a busy dog. I adopted a second dog, a husky, to "keep him busy." I know, Internet, I know. I didn't actually make my life easier. Juno, the criminal, only gave me more work.  Life with the cracker and the criminal has been filled with adventures. These two have taught me more about life than any school, guru or self-help book. Juno wrote  masticated the book on crime and punishment, while the cracker polices her misdemeanors. Together, they drive me nuts. I wouldn't have it any other way.
