Goodbye My Friend


Goodbye my friend, Norwood.  I am honored to have met and known you. I will always giggle as I fondly remember how you challenged me to find new and creative ways to use “Harry Funballs” in a sentence. We will miss you but will carry on your legacy to get outdoors every day and bounce. Because life really is a bowl of Funballs.

In the Fur


For those 3 readers not following the other 3 readers who follow us on Facebook, here’s a little piece of news: Mr. Wild Dingo and I got to meet some very famous Internet celebrities, in the FUR! Last week, we met up with Norwood and his bean along with Jack, Moo and their hu-mom. What a dream come true!  I’m not even sure meeting William Shatner would top this. We met up at a place called Purgatory Chasm for a little walkie action. Continue reading “In the Fur”

If She Only Knew

Mona, the beagle, gazes adoringly at the tall-eared, dark and handsome fella. She dreams of spending quiet evenings alone with her gallant knight. Love is blind. Juno would be happy to unload him for a few days. If she only knew.


When I first adopted Loki, his foster gave me a list of words and commands he understood. “Mine” was one of them.  Basically, he understood the difference between what belonged to her and what he could have.

Like most GSDs, Loki enjoys possessing things but never puts up a fight when told something doesn’t belong to him. And like most GSD’s, he’s also a “leaner,” pushing his body against any person he likes. Continue reading “Mine”

Meeting Aslan

Since we arrived in the ‘hood, Ludwig and his two sisters have been asking their parents for a dog. Marita, Ludwig’s mom and mother of two girls, plus 2 pet rabbits, had grown up on a farm and knew the responsiblity of a dog was heavy. All of her children are accomplished in school and various activities such as horseback riding, swimming, dancing and many other sports. Not to mention, they all speak like 17 languages.  The family is constantly busy and active. She  knew they had to make some space in their lives to share in the responsiblity.  And it gave her time to discuss what kind of dog breed that would best suit them. Ludwig of course wanted a dog like Loki (I’m still questioning why), while the girls (only one of them pictured here) wanted a Siberian. The parents had other ideas. As much as they like Loki and Juno, they knew both were more work than an active family of 5 with 2 rabbits could actually handle. And it had to be small enough for a young child to walk it and hypoallergenic for the dad. So Sibes and Formosan GSD’s were out. Continue reading “Meeting Aslan”
