Do You Need A Laugh?

Golden Retriever Puppy Smiling

Every morning starts the same way. “What are you going to write about on the blog today, Brain?” “The same thing we write about every day, Pinky. How dogs are taking over the world.” But sometimes inspiration fails me. Despite four attempts, I have yet to assemble a coherent thought. And it’s November, when I […]

Honey the golden retriever wonders why dogs aren't allowed.

An acquaintance waved to me as Honey and I walked toward him. He was walking his friend’s dog. The two pups were obviously interested in each other so I asked him if it was okay for them to meet. They frolicked a bit. Then the other dog gave Honey a little snark. I told Honey, “leave […]

Because, at least for now, it’s a relatively cheap place for creative people to share their works with the world. And my latest favorite creative person […]

Honey the golden retriever and cult movies.

I’m not proud of myself. But sometimes I feel envy. No, I don’t covet my neighbor’s car. Or wish I had someone else’s house. But every so often I meet an amazing dog. And I wish I had one just like him. The Amazing Dog Who Waits A contractor who works in my neighborhood had […]

A Sign Of Things To Come?

Honey the golden retriever poses with a hydrant.

Do you know what Honey is standing in front of and what it means? Shhhh, people from New England, mountain regions, the midwest, Canada, and upstate New York and Pennsylvania. Let’s see if the folks from Florida and California and other warm spots can figure it out on their own. These markers appeared on every hydrant […]

Why People Who Love Animals Must Vote

Honey the golden retriever wants you to vote.

It’s election day in the United States. Our local polls just opened a few minutes ago. Even if I weren’t a political junkie who pays close attention to current events, I’d still have to vote. Because I have a furry critter lying on my floor. And I love her. And all people who love animals […]
