Crime and Punishment

"Psst! Daddy-O! Now seems like a good time to get our revenge for the crimes against us this week. How about a game of Catch Me If Woo Can Zoomies with Momma? Bet that’ll learn her!”

Her Turn

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 […]

Yesterday...Today

Yesterday: “Sigh. Life is hard. Especially when my body guard is in the shop getting his smile brightened. I have nobody to protect my jodhpurs and gum drop nose. If woo could only recognize how hard this is for me, it would be so much easier for woo, Momma.”

Scenes Around the Garden

Spring is the best time in our mountain garden. The cruel hot summers can be a challenge to gardening so we generally choose heat-tolerant plants that will bloom in heat. Catmint is generally a hardy plant for heat but when it comes to gardening and me, Murphy's Law always applies. If it's hardy, it's going […]

Same Circus, Same Clowns

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

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 […]

Happy Holidogs and New Year

Hey faithful friends and readers! We're not dead. We've just avoided blogging for a while. We have many stories to share including a travel story or two that happened over the late fall, but we'll put that on hold to wish you all a very Happy New Year. The pups had a pretty nice holiday. […]

Fixing a Broken Cracker

It's Just Biology

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 […]

Lucky In Love

In the wee hours of a summer morning (9 a.m. for a Lymie), I scour the flowerbeds for the impostors, unwelcome beetles who enjoy destroying the bounty intended for bees, butterflies and birds. A common checkered skipper flew up for breakfast on a neighboring salvia.

When Dying is an Art

An older lady rests on a zinnia as the sun rises. Her grayish fur and tattered wings are a clue to her longevity and provoke the imagination of her many adventures. Bees don’t fear death because the story is not about them.

Picking My Poison

"I forgot how chatty you used to be," said Mr. Wild Dingo. What is it they say about medicine? The dose makes the poison? Pick your poison Mr. Wild Dingo: chatty me or taciturn me? So things have literally been up and down like a roller coaster ride on high speed. This is a good […]

Take a Load off Fanny

"Hey lady can you tell me, where a bee might find a bed?" She just grinned and shook her head, "There," was all she said. Another bumble settled in for the night, this time on a cosmo. I can't help but be tickled by these creatures! I love them to pieces.

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 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.
