Channeling Gandalf

"You shall not pass!" 166/365 The cracker channels his inner Gandalf every day on our walks when he leaps ahead of me, whips himself around, and sits as a soldier at attention while staring at me with resounding conviction. I have two choices. I can laugh it off, make him turn around and march forward. […]

Criminal Minds

159/365 “Hey Daddy-O, it’s Friday! And this modeling gig is cramping my style. Let’s blast ourselves wacky with a round of zoomies and some deer-chasin’ action!” “Dollface, you know trouble is my line of work. But how am I supposed to beat my rap if you keep baitin’ me with the cheese?”

Risks and Priorities

 153/365 “Princess, before you leap into the weekend, I have to patrol the trail to make sure it’s safe.” “Nonsense Big Boy! Haven’t you heard? Life is all about the risks! Let’s go for it! That is, after Mom gives us that treat she promised for waiting for her.” That's my Siberian. Always prioritizing treats […]

The Secret to His Crack-a-Tude

149/365 "You think it's funny seeing a tough guy with a security blanket?" "Let me tell you something. The mojo? It comes from my ears." "The courage and the crack-a-tude?

Big Boy Britches

Yesterday, he put his big boy britches on and let the vet poke him in the rib cage with a needle to check on a cyst. Of course it took his favorite position: burying his head between my thighs. “I don’t wanna see momma!”

Gratitude for Fostering and Rescuing

Loki and I thank everyone on Facebook for his well wishes on his anniversary yesterday. We were overwhelmed! But he reminded me that his anniversary is not just about him (my bad for overlooking this), but about all those who rescued him, believed in him and played a big part in him becoming the fantastic […]

Happy Loki-versary!

Seven years ago, you came into our lives full of anxiety and a bit of an emotional mess. All you wanted was your own person and a place to call home. So much so, that it took me months to get you to go on walks and leave the place you felt safe. For the […]

No Walkies? Whaaa?

“What do you mean, ‘there will be no walkies today’ Mom?” Sorry, buddy. Today I spend most of the day at the doctor's doing my first infusion of the week then running to two pharmacies picking up my supplies, all with a big fat migraine from the first rush of the medication. I'd much rather […]

The Bite

Loki took a bite out of Lyme, long before it was ever a Lyme Disease Challenge! Here he is biting a toy spirochete. I pity the Spirochete that comes in contact with cracker or his George Clooney-chompers!
