Do You Look Like Your Dog?

Do you look like your dog.

We all know people and their dogs look alike. After all, check out Winston Churchill and his bulldog. Except Churchill had poodles. So do people really look like their dogs? Or is it an urban myth? Ask Science If People Look Like Their Dogs Some scientists had extra grant money hanging around. So they decided to experiment […]

The Poopy Puppy Pouch of Death

Honey the golden retriever lies in her crate.

Me: “What’s that smell?” Mike: “Smells like swiss cheese.” Me: “It smells like POOP!” And so it begins. Pondering the puzzling putrescence that pounded our perceptions. I hadn’t been in the basement for the past few days. So putting my bike away after sailing was my first exposure to the fetid odor that clung to the […]

Winter is Coming – Wordless Wednesday

Honey the golden retriever sits in snow.

The dogs of the dog days of summer must be huskies. Because we recently saw nighttime temperatures of 48°F/9°C. In August! Is it time to say goodbye to this? And to get ready for this? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!  

Do You Love Dogs For Their Looks?

Honey the golden retriever is beautiful.

Dogs are (wo)man’s best friend. They give unconditional love. They live in the moment. They make us laugh. That’s what everyone says. But do we really expect people to believe we love dogs for their characters? I don’t think we’re so deep. In fact, most of us can’t resist a pretty face. And we really love dogs […]

Kayak Mischief – Monday Mischief Blog Hop

Honey the golden retriever doesn't make mischief.

I know. You don’t usually see us around the Monday Mischief Blog Hop. That’s because Honey is not a terribly mischievous dog. Or is she? Maybe she’s just especially good at hiding her impish ways. Let me tell you a story and you can decide. Honey Goes Kayaking First you need to know that Honey’s not […]

What Happens To The Dog When The Internet Goes Down

Dog delivering a newspaper.

Verizon is out to get me. They’ve must have gotten hold of my comments in favor of net neutrality on the FCC website and they’re putting the screws to me. How? By messing with my broadband. For over a week, I’ve had sketchy internet service. In the early mornings I’m fine. But once people on the […]

My Dog Loves And Hates Her Blog

Honey the Golden Retriever sleeps in the tent by the laptop.

I know people give their dogs credit for knowing amazing things. But Honey does not know she’s the star of her own blog. If I say “Something Wagging This Way Comes” to her, she stares blankly. She has no idea why I keep taking her picture. And most of all, she can’t figure out why […]

The Sound Of His Bark

Honey the golden retriever puppy follows Riley.

I’m glad Honey doesn’t bark much. When people come to the door, she’s silent. When a neighborhood cat visits us on the porch, nothing. Even the Jack Russell and his beagle brother who bark at everyone who walks by their house don’t get a rise out of her. But one sound gets Honey barking every time. When she […]

Scratch and Sniff Dog – Wordless Wednesday

Honey the golden retriever just had a bath.

I need some clever geek to invent something—a scratch and sniff app for computers. You see, Honey just had a bath. She smells wonderful. And she feels even better. So soft. Heck, maybe it’s a hidden feature of WordPress and I never realized it. So go ahead. Scratch and sniff. And tell me Honey is […]

What Dog People Really Want To Know

Honey the Golden Retriever sheds.

I scanned the list of search phrases that bring people to Something Wagging.  Yep, lots of the usual suspects: “woman dog sex” (thanks to this post), “golden retriever” (obviously), and “how to dispose of dog poop” (thanks to this post). But then I saw it. The search phrase that made me gag. “Why do dogs freak […]
