My Old Man

Mr. Wild Dingo turned 50 today. I woke up this morning and kissed him goodbye for work as usual then got and my car and went to my doctor's appointment. I felt like I was forgetting something. When I got to the office, I remembered that I forgot to tell him "Happy Birthday." So I […]

His Dog

They're an unlikely pair. Juno and Mr. Wild Dingo. He prefers goofy, gruff, manly dogs and she prefers me. But every Sunday, the one day per week the four of us are together,  she's his and he's hers for the day. The ritual of taking her leash each Sunday has bonded them in ways beyond my imagination.

Sexy Phoos

"I can do this with my eyes closed!" She's an entirely different dog from her first days and months with us where she showed no interest in training, or tricks and least of all, Mr. Wild Dingo. Now, nothing makes her happier than when Mr. Wild Dingo pulls out the training treats. She puts on […]

Hold Still!

The Challenge: looking high or looking low. Yesterday's shoot didn't go as planned. I was hoping to get some interesting canine snout shots from below. Instead I got this quiet moment while laying on the ground. This is so typical of Loki, talking and leaning on his favorite person.

This is a Story of...MURDER!

I'm no green thumb. It's true. But since I'm now cooking quite heavily and enjoy using fresh herbs over dried, TravelMarx encouraged me to try caring for and growing some herbs, because what's the worst that can happen, right? I mean, I've had the dogs for almost three years now and for better or worse, they […]
