I Think I’ve Created a Monster


Sleeping Chihuahuas

Many years ago, when Hubby and I first met, neither one of us had pets. Oh, I’ve had dogs in my childhood. They were always strays. The one we had the longest (and she was the one of the best dogs ever) was Missy. She was still relatively young when she found us – maybe 2 years old – and we had her until she died about 14 years later. But she was the most gentle and loving dog you’d ever meet, part Labrador and part Collie, and you’d only have to fear being licked to death from her. More


The Online Profile Picture Controversy


Profile Picture

If you’re reading this, chances are you have at least one online profile with a picture. Long before the dawn of Facebook, people have existed behind online profiles. I still remember back in the day before broadband, people would construct their profiles with just a few words (there were no pictures, because everyone was using dial-up and it would have taken f-o-r-e-v-e-r for the picture to download). But as internet connection speeds have increased, so did the need for profile pictures.


The Doglette Bad Dream Tribulation


Dog Nightmare

Well, it’s finally come to that time: when we care enough for the doglettes that we are now having doglette nightmares. Okay, maybe not quite nightmares where we wake up screaming, but the type of very uncomfortable dream that has us waking upset – so much so that we need to make sure they’re okay.

For me, it’s just an expected small step. For Hubby, this is a HUGE step in life.


Ah, the Life of a Dog Person



Up until about 2 years ago, my hubby was not, in the least, interested in having a dog of any kind. The reason is because when he was a child, he and his mother were chased by a pack of dogs – which would be enough to scare the life out of any child into adulthood, and away from ever having a dog. (I won’t go into detail with any of his numerous stories about dogs as he was growing up and as a teenager, but I will mention that there were nervous twitchings, frozen stares, and some licking done.)
