What I like best about summer is Daylight Savings Time. The days are longer, it stays light out later, and we take walks in the sweet evening breeze after things have cooled down a bit from the summer heat.Read More
"All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed. For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog."
-Charles M. Schulz
"Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer."
-Dean Koontz, False Memory
It's spring and I love spring (except for the allergies, of course, but I don't really get them like my brother Ollie does, poor guy). Actually, there's not much I don't love... except, I guess, when it's too hot to take a walk. It's easy for me to love everything, though, because I live "the life of Riley." Now who is this Riley character anyway?Read More
Spring has officially sprung, and that means Mother Nature is buzzing with energy all around us, with loads of transformations and self-awareness.

I was informed that my mom wrote about pets being actually good for your health in her newsletter. Well of course we are! Anybody knows that. But just in case you are a skeptic, I offered to tell you that there has been real research done on the subject. (I have NO IDEA why anybody would doubt it and have to “scientifically validate” it, but here goes)Read More
It’s been about a year since you’ve heard from me. I’ve been really busy, catching friends as they fly through the clouds to the Other Side! I somehow got ahold of a really soft, cushy (as you can see), vintage catcher’s mitt that was once owned by Jim Hegan who played and coached baseball from the 1930’s to the 1970’s.Read More
I wanted to say thanks for all your support during my fierce battle with Bad Fred over the last few months and to tell you that sometimes, as we all know, winning comes at a great cost. I feel that, together, we managed to slay that Awful Darkness so he won't hurt anybody else, but it did cost me my fleshy suit from which I emerged relatively peacefully on Thursday morning around 11am.Read More
