Stolen Time

Mr. Wild Dingo says, "The best time is stolen time." So we stole an extra hour at lunch for some shenanigans in Santa Cruz. Lunchtime Shenanigans from Julie Starling on Vimeo. Not too shabby for 11 and 12 year old pups, huh? PS. Dear readers, I know you've been wondering where we've all been. We're […]

Alarm Cracker

Today I woke to The Cracker and Coyotes belting out a cool, hip tune to the beat of a firetruck caravan. It must be Tuesday. Except that it's Monday.

Worshiping nightly, she prays for the coming of Cheeses, while MWD ministers an amuse-bouche in the kitchen.

My Remarkable Husky

This is what my husky does when I’m doing my macro photo thing. For those who don’t know huskies, this is rare, extraordinary--remarkable! She patiently waits for me to finish my thing and doesn’t run off to the next county, state, or country like most huskies would do. I have no idea how she learned […]

Expedience or Obedience

Juno is not like most Siberian huskies. Sure she digs, chews and gets into all sorts of trouble. But when it comes to obedience, she is missing a few crucial Siberian genetics.

Lymecentricities

“How are you doing cognitively,” asked my doctor. “Well,” I replied, “I used the cordless vacuum to do a quick pick-up of dog hair in my bedroom the other day. I vacuumed most of the room before I realized that the dust canister wasn’t installed.  Then it took me 30 minutes to find the canister. […]

She's Still Got it!

The other day, I came home to find not one, but two pairs of leather shoes, completely in tact, sitting exactly where I left them,  right under Juno's nose. I thought that maybe she had finally grown out of her mastication crimes and it made me kind of sad.

The Stoic Ice Queen

Well, she's done it again. She zoomied herself into a gnarly injury that won't go away. This time, her shoulders. Over the summer, I  noticed a very subtle "head bob" at the beginning of our walks, but it would vanish within a minute. Each time she over-zoomied, her head bob got worse, but any time […]

Turkish Spa

Why is it, whenever I give the dogs a bath and lay out about 187 old towels and blankets for them to roll around on for drying off, the Sibe always insists on going straight to my prized handwoven Turkish rug to finish her drying? Remember that time when Mr. Wild Dingo and I were […]
