Neighborhood is a foreign concept when you’re a transient living on a boat. We don’t see the same dog walkers every day, chat with the school crossing guard each morning, or make that weekly visit to the farmer’s market. But we still have Pet Blogville. And the Annual Pet Blogger Challenge is its big block […]
I’m not expecting any gifts aboard Meander this season. Or maybe I should say the gifts will be new fuel injectors, a repaired propeller, and the fuel lines my husband replaced. But if I was giving Honey gifts, here’s what I’d do.
The universe is conspiring against me and my dog. Yeah, I’m really busy and my dog Honey would have to be dealing with that anyway. But the extreme cold is making things even worse. Can I really blame winter for my neglected dog?
My husband and I call RVs land yachts. Our friends who roll down the highways have a lot in common with our friends who sail the seas. But is traveling by RV really like traveling by sailboat?

I’ve never had a fat dog. In fact, my friends from Slim Doggy had to point out to me that Honey was actually getting too skinny. But our new foster dog is a corpulent canine, a dense dog, a bulging beagle. Blanche is enormous. Beagles should weigh less than 30 pounds. Blanche weighs about 46 pounds, […]
Follow my blog with Bloglovin When a foster dog visits, things change. If the foster is a puppy, we reorganize the house—put dirty laundry behind closed doors, block off the stairs, and set up an exercise pen and crate. But even when the foster dog is a polite, adult dog who just needs a calm […]
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 […]
