New Puppy

Hello folks. I know I’ve been neglecting you something fierce lately. I’m sorry! I love you! Yesterday was a big day. Casey turned 2; it was Valentine’s Day, so I got some beautiful flowers and to spend a wonderful day with a Miklos; and last but not least, we got a new puppy. Originally, we hadn’t planned on getting another dog until Casey kicks it years from now, which to us meant never again, because she is going to live to be 200, so we’ll be … Continue reading

Casey Loves this Record Player

The record player works! We tested it out last night with an old record Miklos’s parents loaned us. When Casey heard the music, she immediately ran upstairs.

Going to try more stuff like this one, including customizing people’s own pet portraits. Let me know what you think! Share the … Continue reading

I searched Google Play for dog-walking apps and came up with a … Continue reading

A Day Without a Dog

…or a few hours anyway. So rarely does the house smell as good as it does when there’s no Labrador to shed all over it. I love this dog (now) but I am always glad for these blue moon opportunities to thoroughly mop the hell out of the floors she encrusts with her poochy filth for hours every day. While I wait for the floor to dry as I am stranded on this island of a computer chair, I’m re-familiarizing myself with the sweet rock … Continue reading
