It’s Just Biology

First, a few weeks ago, Mr. Wild Dingo had the good fortune of getting to pull out an 18" tape worm from Loki's butt. It was stuck and Loki begged Mr. Wild Dingo to help him get it out. Yup, this is the glamorous life, Internet!  So both he and Juno got de-wormed....

Clawing My Way Back to Normal

So this happened yesterday. I'm just as shocked as you all. I'm still being held together by "scotch tape" as I like to refer it. Last week, "something happened" (I'll spare you the details) that gave my doctors a huge clue as to why I'm not eradicating Babesia and...

Picking My Poison

"I forgot how chatty you used to be," said Mr. Wild Dingo. What is it they say about medicine? The dose makes the poison? Pick your poison Mr. Wild Dingo: chatty me or taciturn me? So things have literally been up and down like a roller coaster ride on high speed....

Take a Load off Fanny

"Hey lady can you tell me, where a bee might find a bed?" She just grinned and shook her head, "There," was all she said. Another bumble settled in for the night, this time on a cosmo. I can't help but be tickled by these creatures! I love them to...

Saucy Minx

It's embarrassing. All it takes is a mature, dapper gentleman still in possession of his family jewels for Juno to abandon all modesty to become a saucy minx. I won't show you the other photos because this is a family blog and those photos are rated X.  On another...

Damsels and Dragons in the Garden, Oh My!

If you plant it, they will come. Finally! I've been waiting to see a damselfly or dragonfly in my garden. This is a dameselfly. With all the walking I do with the dogs, I get to see them often throughout the mountains but never carry my big lens with me on a dog walk....

Lifeguard on Duty

In our fountain-pond, we used to have floating flowers so bees and birds could enjoy the water without drowning. Unfortunately, they didn't hold up to the harshness of the winter or changing temperatures. So now I'm a lifeguard. Every night, I fish out one or two bees...
