R.I.P. Patrick Henry

Patrick Henry was born March 16, 2006. I brought him hom on May 21, 2006 along with his brother (litter mate) Winston Churchill. During that car ride we stopped to let them out to go to the bathroom. Before we could get leads on them, both of them lept from the car, and Winston tore… read more

The cat from the other day that I said had been dumped on my property … so, yeah, she’s going to stay with us for good. Despite leaving a message for the Humane Society, they never bothered to call me about bringing the kitten in. So, on Sunday night we decided I would take her… read more

Animal Dumping

If you know me at all, you know that I am a sucker for animals.  Between my five dogs and one cat, that should be pretty evident.  So, imagine my dismay yesterday when I started seeing what appeared to be a little kitten hanging around my dumpster.

Introducing Dexter

Okay, it’s official, I’m turning into a crazy old dog person. Back in June of 2009 we added Franklin as our fourth and final dog.  They were all cocker spaniels, we were happy and then … a friend came into a situation where she had to move to an apartment that doesn’t allow pets. …… read more

There is one drawback to my blog readership exploding in the past year, and that is I am getting more and more reluctant to do personal stories. It isn’t what the majority of my RSS subscribers signed up for, but there are times where I just can’t resist throwing in a bit of personal news,… read more

Meet Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  Yes, he is the one on the left. It’s been quite a while since I talked about my dogs, and the only reason it is coming up today is that we are adding a fourth to our pack.  Franklin, as he will be known, is a tri-parti mix, although his tan… read more

UPDATE: We changed his name to McKinley… he’s a Bi-color (what a breed name)… and he’s under 1 year old. He’s had his shots now, and next is the snip-snip. Oh, and his favorite place to nap is on my chest when I am leaning back at my work computer… makes typing an adventure! While… read more

Snow Addiction

This is Teddy. Teddy has a problem. He suffers from “snow addiction”. We’re trying to get him in a program, he’s up to a couple inches a day. It’s horrible. (you can click the image for a larger view of his shame)… read more

Laura of TLD Cocker Spaniels has her hands full with cocker spaniels at the moment. (For those who follow along, Laura was the breeder of my Winston and Patrick) Besides her usual puppies, which the current litter is ADORABLE, she has three adults that need homes. Pictured here is Monte. He was born December 16th,… read more

We built the dogs a makeshift crate at work that we can lock them up quickly when the UPS man comes. Patrick likes to lay on top of things, why, I have no clue, but he does. So, it took him no time at all to figure out he could jump in a chair and… read more
