The most painful day as a dog owner isn’t the pain of embarrassment when our agility dog knocks just about every bar on a jumpers course, nor is it having to come up with the cash to pay a rather large and unexpected veterinarian bill. I think each of you who owns a dog knows […]

Happy 17th Birthday To a Very Special Red Border Collie

Posted on 09/20/13 29 Comments

Today Buzz turns 17-years-old! I couldn’t be happier. Not just because I have had my special boy for so many amazing years. But because Buzz isn’t just a dog that is hanging on as a 17-year-old dog; he is a dog that is actively engaged in life as a 17 year old dog. So much […]

Posted on 09/20/12 37 Comments

If someone would have told me 10 years ago that my “gotta-live-life-on-the-edge” red Border Collie Buzz would live to be 16 years old, I would have seriously doubted their logic. I mean, don’t most kamikaze pilots have a shortened life expectancy? What a blessing Buzz has been. As a youngster Buzz never held back. It […]

Making the Best Decisions for our Senior Dogs

Posted on 08/09/12 58 Comments

Some of us fortunate dog owners will, at some point in time, have the great honor of living with a senior dog. Senior dogs make me laugh.

Posted on 03/30/10 6 Comments

Home from Finland late yesterday. John and I went out for supper then I went to bed at 7:30 and didn’t wake up until 5 AM. I think I needed the rest. Normally I am a very light sleeper, last night I don’t remember John coming to bed at all, although he says I sat […]

A Neccessary Untruth

Posted on 03/23/10 23 Comments

So John and I have had this agreement when I go away to teach. It is that he will lie to me. I think it may be unfair to him, but he doesn’t complain and luckily he has rarely had to lie. So the agreement is, that if anything happens to one of my dogs […]

Ramblings from the Weekend

Posted on 02/08/10 6 Comments

Just a few thoughts from the three day seminar I just wrapped up here in Florida. I passed by this little tricket in the grass every day and I just had to take a snapshot of it on my last day. Yes I know it is just the squeeky out of a dog toy, but […]

Posted on 01/25/10 39 Comments

Okay being the proud owner of Buzz, (who, if there was a Hall of Fame for Barking Agility Dogs, would be one of the first inductees) I feel it would be remiss if I didn’t come to the defensive of the other owners of barking agility dogs. Yes, I agree, there are some dog owners […]
