Best of Wild Dingo

Red Alert

I've been known to boast about Loki and his natural talents but I never thought he'd live up to it. Maybe it's because I see potential in him that nobody else can see. He literally saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage and quite possibly our lives when...

Cadel Evans Wins More than Bike Races

Oh my God! Why is the Winner of the 2011 Tour de France and 2011 Tour of Romandie, Cadel Evans pointing at me as he’s rolling up to the start of the 2012 Tour of Romandie? No seriously! He’s unclipping, and he’s pointing and speaking French. Is he mad at me for taking...

Mini Me, You Complete Me

"Mini Me, if I ever lost you I don't know what I would do. I'd probably move on, get another stuffy. But there would be a 15 minute period there where I would just be...

Just Say No

What are you looking for," asked the Turkish stranger on the street. "We're looking for the Church of Chora," we replied. "Let me show you our carpets," he said. "Why? Do you have a magic one to take us there?" Everyone and his brother has a carpet store in Istanbul....

Can You Hear Me Now?

Whether she's pirating his favorite bed just to screw with his head, forcing him into bitey-face action or swishing her tail  flirtatiously in his face, never a day goes by where Juno doesn't push his buttons. She'll have plenty of time to push those buttons while I'm...

It’s Contagious

I made a mistake and didn't get Juno vaccinated. She caught it from Loki.  And now she looks like this.  Internet: save your doggie and yourself. Vaccinate against...

Hold Still!

The Challenge: looking high or looking low. Yesterday's shoot didn't go as planned. I was hoping to get some interesting canine snout shots from below. Instead I got this quiet moment while laying on the ground. This is so typical of Loki, talking and leaning on his...

Doggie Ga-Ga

Someone here at Wild Dingo has a Ga-Ga crush. (Hint: It's not me.) "My mama told me when I was young, We are all born superstars"  "I'm on the right track, baby; I was born this way!" Be sure to watch this all the way through. To the...

I Don’t Make this Stuff Up

So I come home after a long day of shopping and toss out some new toys for the dogs to keep them busy while I put things away. Both dogs are starving for some action. Loki especially misses training and working. He's desperate to play with anyone. Even at the expense...

Planning Ahead

It's a bit early but Loki and Juno have begun to plan for the big move. "Hey Princess, since we'll be living near a lake, should I pack my float-able toys?" "Dude, we live 15 minutes from the ocean now. You've never swam in it. What do you think?" "Princepessa, I...

“Hallo.”

"My name is Inigo Montoyo. You killed my stuffie. Prepare to die." Loki recently graduated summa cum-laude from Harvard Business School of Revenge. "You seem like a decent momma. I'd hate to kill you." Mr. Wild Dingo is out of the country. I am alone and hazing my...

WTF? Wednesday

"WTF are you doing to my Juno Dogtor?"  Um, Dogtor Hilary, don't look back. There's an long-toothed Formosanorous Rex behind you. Stay perfectly calm. I hear they will walk away if you just remain still. Or at least shut their pie hole. He may tenderize you before he...

How Working Dogs Call in Sick

"Hi Mom. Whatchya want?" "Hey Daddy-O. Looks like Mom's fixin' to ask us to do some work." "Princess, hard work never killed anybody." "True, but why take the risk?" "Besides, it's cold outside. Why don't we just ignore the 'ole lady and make ourselves cozy?"...

Doggie Gras

Mr. Wild Dingo and I decided to host a yearly Mardi Gras party, partly because our house is unconsciously designed in those colors and themes and partly because we love an excuse to party! Last year, these two crashed our party and did this: This is the consequence of...

Saving Juno’s Jodhpurs

On Tuesday, Juno went for her first physical therapy session for building up muscle in her back legs. Of all the horrors, it involved walking on a treadmill-- underwater! And unlike many dogs who do this the first time, Juno picked it up quickly and walked almost...

Say What?

Wild Dingo Big News Contest Clue #2 Loki and Juno are getting a new trainer!   UPDATE! Planet Blue Dog has generously donated some of the doggie prizes you see below! I recently met the owner of Planet Blue Dogat a dog show and if feels like I've known her my whole...

Breaking Points & Invalids

First off, we at Wild Dingo are overwhelmed with the all the warm wishes that have been tossed our way for Juno Belle. Overwhelmed. Thank you so much for all the warm wishes, thoughts and comments that keep rolling in.  Juno is home tonight, resting next to her cone...
