My Tough Girl

If I ever find myself complaining about this stupid pain of Lyme disease, all I have to do is look up to my tough girl. She was born in pain and some how finds a way to live life to the fullest within her potential. She's a my guru. She's my tough girl.

I Work Out

"When I walk in the spa, this is what I see. Everyone stops and they're staring at me. I got passion in my jodhpurs and I ain't afraid to show it."

Operation Jodhpurs Bulk-Up

"Princess, I don't think we're alone!" Operation Jodhpurs Bulk-Up is now underway. Getting ready for our second mountain bike ride was a real treat.

The Return of Juno's Inner-Cracker

He'll suddenly bust into circle sprints:  tail and butt tucked under, ears flat back, mouth wide open, eyes dialed wild and paws in full-throttle. Yesterday, Juno busted out the crack-a-tude too-- for no apparent reason: Oh yeah, her body language meets all […]

I Told Him So

  Mr. Wild Dingo is due home tomorrow. Hopefully he'll either note that Juno and Loki have lost a little weight and he won't be tempted to give them too many treats or he'll note that Juno and Loki have not lost a little weight and he won't be tempted to give them too many […]
