Repetitive Name Calling

September 21, 2021 |

Landon is always the last to come into the house which seems to lead to Hu-Dad’s annoying habit of repetitive name calling. In this case, Hu-Dad called Landon’s name just often enough to get this look of “What???” Don’t worry, though, because Landon didn’t go inside. He just wanted Hu-Dad to be quiet.

This Week's Special Features

Monday Musing

Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.

I Hired A Private Investigator

September 19, 2021

In a bizarre moment Hu-Dad had long forgotten, he once hired a private investigator to sweep an office for bugs. Hidden microphones, not insects.

This Past Week's Stories

Controlled Exit

September 19, 2021 |

We tend to bounce, jostle, and race when we move from point to point, so Hu-Dad was quite impressed with our controlled exit the other day. Landon led the way with an orderly line following. We were probably surprised Landon was leading rather than bouncing around the house.

Something Smells Suspicious

September 18, 2021 |

Yesterday morning, Hu-Dad told us to nap while he left the house for a few hours. He pretended nothing exciting happened, but we think something smells suspicious. And when we say smells, we mean we caught the scent of some strange dogs. So, yes, we snatched his phone and looked for photos. Read today’s full post to see what we found.

Caption This: Dear Landon

September 17, 2021 |

Dear Landon: Do you know it’s raining? And did you know it’s dark? And it’s bedtime? Everyone else is warm, snuggly, and dry. Hu-Dad really doesn’t want to go outside and get wet to get you. What do you say about coming inside the house? Dear Readers: What was Boom Boom’s response to such an innocent request? For Caption This Friday, go ahead and give us the best answer.

Stretching And Prepping

September 16, 2021 |

Mid-day break means some time in the yard and the inevitable wrestling matches. His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey is warming up for his match with bestest buddy Roscoe P. with some light stretching. (Some of you are trying to pluck that excess fur and Typhoon says stop it. Just stop it.)

Suave And Efficient

September 14, 2021 |

Frankie Suave is the steady influence on his brothers. He claims his spot under Hu-Dad’s desk during the day and on the foot of the human bed at night. No younger brother would think to challenge his right to either place. When outdoor time calls, Frankie goes straight out, handles business, and comes right back in. No sense in being away from the comforts of home any longer than necessary. Suave and efficient.

Saying Hi To A Deer Friend

September 12, 2021 |

During our afternoon walks, we see many others out enjoying the neighborhood greenway. The mornings, however, tend to be much quieter since we go earlier than many, particularly on the weekends. Imagine how quiet the neighborhood was then when we came around the corner and saw a deer friend. And, no, that wasn’t a misspelling.
