Something Wicked This Way Comes

With apologies to Ray Bradbury (who has to apologize to William Shakespeare for the title), we could think of nothing other than Something Wicked This Way comes with this photograph.

    That pose is somewhat serpent-like – perfect caption!

    Much sadness in our house the past few days, and for many more days to come. We had to let our beloved Ayla cross to “North of the Rainbow Bridge” on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. She lost her battle with Canine Diabetes finally, after putting up such a terrific fight since May, when she was first diagnosed, The insulin just wasn’t helping anymore. Anyway, from now on, it’ll be me ‘n Ice, until “Me” gets Ice broken into this commenting thing. Right now, he’s grieving for his beloved daughter, too. (Ayla was 9 years old in July, Ice was 11 years old in June).

    I agree, Ty does have a wicked look about him, and looks like he’s on a mission to accomplish whatever evil lurks behind that “furry brain” of his. Hope he’s not planning on doing any bodily harm. Careful there, Ty, there COULD be repercussions!

      Oh, we are so sorry to hear of Ayla’s passing. We know all too well how terribly difficult such a loss is. We have asked The Herd at the Bridge to welcome Ayla with open paws.

    Heheh. I’ve said that about Abby, too, more than once. BTW, I’ve considered getting lots of photos of the Pawsatch Dog Tours (they are in our neck of the woods) just to show Fi and Abby what dogs who actually work for a living do. 🙂

    What a great shot of Typhoon! He’s such a handsome dog–and it looks like he’s filling out some too!

Requiem for a Rabbit

May 21, 2023

A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.

In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
