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 […]

Random Dog Tails

I wonder if I should get used to seeing things around my house chewed up now that I have a Siberian Husky. It seems while Juno was practicing downward dog the temptation of recycled rubber was too much for her to resist. She gave it the low rating of two small nibbles. To you and […]

The Formosan Mountain Dog Channel

Apparently, it doesn’t take much for Formosan Mountain Dogs to find Loki on the ‘Net these days. Cosmo is this second to stumble upon the pages of my Formosan Mountain Dog wonder. Cosmo channeled his new Dad, George, to seek out Loki on the Web, so he can reach out and say “Woof” to his […]

Alligator on a Leash

Loki’s back in school after his holiday break. Today, he surprised me with “mostly” good behavior. The trainer calls him the “alligator on a leash.” I can't imagine why. Maybe because our classes used to go a little like this:

Unloading Loki

Confession: I have a naughty dog. There. I wrote it. He's not randomly aggressive toward people or children. In fact, he’s friendly to people. He’s not even food possessive/aggressive. It took him two nights to learn that he is never to even look at Juno when she's eating. He has two choices when he's finished: look at me […]

Bad Dogs and the Women Who Love Them

That’s the book I’ll someday write. But for now, I’m starting a support group: Women Addicted to Bad Dogs. Me: “Hello. My name is Julie. I’m a Bad Dogaholic.” Group: “Hello Julie.” How can something as sweet as this: Do something as evil as this?

Please Mom, I'll Never Ask For Anything Else!

Last Sunday, I broke down and got him his own dog. Not for Mr. Wild Dingo but for Loki. Just so I’d have a few free moments to myself instead of playing tug with him 24/7. Husky owner, Jim (owner of Loki’s favorite chew toy Vushkey) planted a little seed in my ear “Come by the adoption […]

Adventures of a Formosan Mountain Dog

People keep asking me what breed Loki is. Some guess the German Shepherd, but then they can’t figure out the rest. When you Google Taiwanese Mountain Dog you’ll find Formosan Mountain Dog, Taiwan’s version of the dingo. He has some of the same traits, namely those antenna- like ears, body structure and shape of his […]

Who Rescued Who?

It’s no secret that I like all animals, specifically dogs. I like all breeds of dogs: big, small, smart, not-so-smart, silly, dignified, long hair, short hair. But I go ga-ga for small dogs: Shitzu’s, terriers, Pomeranians, Maltese and Benji-like mutts. Something about them tugs at my heart strings. Scott doesn’t prefer smaller breeds so we […]

Falsely Accused?

Loki’s foster mom, Cindy, emailed me today. She asked me to apologize to Loki for accusing him of taking all the shampoo bottles out of the tub. It turns out her own dog, Lupin, had just been caught in the act of the very same alleged misdemeanor last night. And she was sorry that she […]

Decisions, Decisions!

For the last few days, Loki’s been settling in. In the beginning he seemed happy but sad. Sad in that he missed his foster mom who had him for three months. His foster mom is a dog trainer, with a pack of dogs and some horses and I’m guessing lots of free roaming space and […]

Wild Dingo Hires New Talent

In an effort to restore canine balance to Wild Dingo’s staff, I’ve been busy interviewing and searching for just the right fit into this dysfunctional organization I call a business. The search was difficult, as the talent pool is saturated with an abundance of heartwarming quadrupeds that all deserve much better than the histories they […]
