Photographs, snapshots of life that provide us with slices of our day at a fraction of a second at a time. Sometimes, they show us a truth that we miss with our own eyes. For example? Well, we are currently fostering Johnny Cash and June Carter. And, looking at the pictures from the first few … Continue reading On the Hospitality of Jordan
The cliche is that pets allow us - and especially children - to learn about empathy, about responsibility, and then about dealing with death. If you adopt a senior dog, this is especially true; from day one, you're potentially dealing with dental surgery, joint problems, and behavioral issues that are at that point so ingrained … Continue reading On Old Ladies
I don't know about you, but I am offended on his behalf. It's just a small mercy that he can't read.

Currently – that is, in the last five minutes – my favorite thing is how he runs when he’s looking up, chasing away birds from the no-fly zone he’s established around our garden. … Continue reading On Pug Love
John Henry gets a lot of attention, so this week I want to focus - really up close - on our angry grandma (AG): the feisty and direct Miss Jordan Underfoot. She doesn't just like her chin to be stroked. She demands it. Be like Jordan: let the world know what you deserve.
