Spenser The Dog Looks At Me When I Leave For Work In The Morning

Like a small child who knows he will be left alone all day with nothing but some chew toys and a bowl of kibble. Not that I ever did that with a small child. And the statute of limitations is long past anyway.

What if Spenser the Dog was on Pretty Little Liars?

I just noticed that the show Pretty Little Liars has a character named Spencer Hastings and I was wondering how my dog Spenser would fare in the role: I don’t know, Spenser. Fluffy toy maybe? Aw, Spenser! You have it pretty cushy here, don’t you? Her name is Lexi, and she is a guest. Spare […]

Awkward Photojournalism: Travel Edition

We drove cross state from Buffalo to Oneonta, NY today. We stopped at a rest stop outside Syracuse and I spotted a car with a toboggan strapped to the top of it and I had to take a picture of it because it was sunny out with no sign of snow and looked so out […]

The Absurdities Just Keep on Coming

I saw this book at Barnes & Noble last night. I think this is the first book I’ve seen that actively targeted the tween eating disordered market. Perhaps they can bundle it with a nice volume on cutting from the how-to section. THIS, on the other hand is superfun from Slate.com. It’s an interactive map […]

Shark Dog? I’ll Show You Shark Dog!

We are hosting guest dog Molly over winter break: She is from South Carolina and is none too pleased with being required to go out into the cold to do her business, even though this has been a mild Buffalo winter. She complains about this frequently to The Management. She is a tiny little daschund and could not me more different from our dear, […]

At Least She Didn’t Name Him Kenny

Airline mishap leaves dog in Alaska  If you thought it was bad when the airlines lost your luggage, how about them losing a beloved pet? http://www.wivb.com/dpp/news/erie/airline-mishap-leaves-dog-in-alaska Maybe this is another reason to own purse-sized pets so that you don’t have to check Bowser with your Louis Vuitton. . South Park lovers (my husband is not […]

Sharkdog, You Will Be Missed

So we lost our doggy Akeesha on Monday. She was 14, so she lived a good long life, but we still miss her fiercely. Here are some of the posts I have written about her: Sharkdog Doghenge Doghenge Revisted Doghenge with a Vengeance – Henge Harder Sharkdog is not a morning dog She’s been going […]

Doghenge With a Vengeance- Henge Harder

Sharkdog is REALLY getting an attitude. This is the longest range Doghenge yet.  (See Doghenge and Doghenge Revisited.) She seems to have changed her focus to distance rather than height. She also set the stage by lurking behind the door so that I would hit her in the head with it and feel guilty. Its’ all […]

Labor Day is the Last Day of Summer- Deal With It

You know it is. On the calendar, it’s not until like the 20th of September, but c’mon. If you haven’t done whatever you planned to do over the summer, it’s too late. But not to worry, it’s clean slate time. None of us have really ever moved from the academic calendar we have been following […]

Doghenge Revisited

You may recall a previous blog post regarding my subversive dog who stacks her food and water dishes as an act of silent rebellion.  She is not protesting the  food, before you ask. She gets the high-end-fancy-pance petstore brand. I think it’s made from unicorns and pyramid dust. Well, she’s at it again with: The Slide: […]
