Diary of a Dog Nut

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.

How to Remove Husky Hair from Your Car

After last week's busy training schedule, I had a chance to actually notice the Husky and Formosan Mountain Dog hair that had grown quietly into mountains of dense fur and had crept into the deepest crevices of my Mini Cooper. Rather than make a needless carbon foot print to drive 20 minutes to the car […]

The Key Word is "Mostly"

As in Juno is "mostly" well-adjusted. Just take a look at what my "mostly well-adjusted" dog did while I took Loki to training this morning.

Born to be Wild!

The trainer that Loki and Juno work with once said that huskies were "wild" dogs and not really meant to be domestic, or something along those lines. I could be mincing words so don't get up in my grill about his exact words or disagreeing with his opinion. He’s an experienced K9 police dog trainer […]

Modeling is Hard Work

We've been busy at Wild Dingo, photo shooting our "Go Orange" photos in support of Prevention of Animal Cruelty month. Loki and Juno are glad to support the cause. Loki is a happily working dog and has no complaints. He does his job. He gets paid. End of story. And he does his job spectacularly well. […]

In the Dog Yard No One Can Hear You Scream

Before anyone calls the local cruelty police, take a gander at how I arrived at this month's banner. That's Loki's "Game on!" face. If you didn't know him and saw that face, you'd most likely have an accident in your pants. But when you know him, and see that face, it makes you laugh so […]

Possession is...

...nine tenths of the law.  ...two legs of the husky. (Found recorded in the ancient archives of Formosan Mountain Dog Law Journals.)

Tango Anyone?

What some don't know is that Juno is accomplished in Siberian Tango, a style of tango that has matured into its own right along with Argentine Tango, Ballroom Tango and Finnish Tango. Surprisingly the Ballroom Dance Association has yet to fully acknowldege Siberian Tango.

Oh Behave!

Loki passed his ABC (A Behaved Canine) certification this weekend. I never thought it would happen for this alligator on a leash. The judges had us perform one extra exercise that is not required for the certification, but merely had us do it just to see us sweat. All dogs had to stay down while […]

Please Leash Your Alligator

The last two months its been really hard to say goodbye to the previous month's masthead. I grow attached to them and it's sad to see them archived. Then as I develop the new one, I start to smile and enjoy the process of creating something silly and fun. I've had this image for four or […]
