And Now For Something Completely Different


What, I can only take pictures of dogs? The view from the deck last September. Scroll down for more dog photos. Trust me, they're there.


Age 12 1/2, and not a bit of grey on her. Some girls have all the luck...

A Pioneer

It is hard to believe, but once upon a time our house held no dog beds, even though we had dogs aplenty. Then we adopted Annie. Shortly after she arrived, we noticed her rearranging the area rugs; piling them up into little heaps that she would then sit on.

Well, we can take a hint. Now, thanks to Costco, we have a large selection of dog beds scattered around the house for the dogs to choose from.

So, in the interests of the historical record, here is Annie reclining on the fruits of her efforts: her/our very first dog bed.

Mugging for the camera.

A more introspective moment.

Jezebel 02

We have rescued many dogs, and this is the only one whose name we were able to discover. She had been micro-chipped as a puppy, and although none of the other information on her was current, she definitely responded to the name.

Given how many times and ways it has been misspelled since then by people who know her (Jesabel, Jesabelle, Jezabel, etc.), who knows if the original owner actually spelled it this way. She has never complained, however.
