Except when they’re not.
Except when they’re not.
It was a beautiful morning. The dogs and I made our rounds around the property doing our daily chores. I cleaned the dog yard while Juno hunted for moles. Loki ran his daily perimeter check and implemented his standard pre-emptive strike, barking along the fence line to warn away any critters creeping too closely. The […]
The day starts out innocently enough. I get up, do a few light chores, prepare my daily pills and sit at my computer, already exhausted from the morning chores. After receiving their fair share of my buttered toast, Juno starts to goose me. “It’s time to go walkies, now,” she tells me with a sparkle in […]
What do you mean, Poppy says you can’t buy us anymore treats? What did we ever do to him to deserve that kind of punishment? I know what you’re wondering Internet: What does economizing, gut health and dog treats all have in common? Hold on to your hats because I’m about to show you how […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about returning to normal lately and constantly wondering what normal will be for me in recovery. After all, I haven’t really been “normal” in a decade.

This year, we were able to get away for a few days for our anniversary. I’ve been wanting to go up North to a dog friendly environment and hike some headlands and river trails. Last year I was too sick to even sit at my computer and this year, though I’m still on plenty of drugs […]
Mr. Wild Dingo sat in the kitchen watching me prepare dinner. He claimed he changed his routine from working in the office to the kitchen so he could spend more time with me. Knowing his passion for the economy of motion, I suspected it was easier for him to stay close to me rather than jump […]
Last weekend, we all celebrated Juno’s 7th birthday and 6th anniversary with us. Instead of the typical family day with just the four of us, we took a very big hike in the mountains with some friends and dog pals. Juno is nothing if not social. She enjoys the company of other dogs on our […]
