Dog Poop Is Blooming; It Must Be Spring

Honey the Golden Retriever puppy

I grew up in Maryland. As a child, spring meant warm weather, blooming bulbs, and the opening of the snow cone stand. But now I live in snowy upstate New York. And spring means two things: mud and dog poop.

What Does Your Dog Do All Day? – Wordless Wednesday

Honey the golden retriever sleeps on the couch.

When I get home from work I ask my dog Honey, “What did you do all day? Did you have adventures?”

Today Is The TRUE Puppy Day

Pam, Mike, and Honey before they go home.

Apparently yesterday was National Puppy Day. It must be true because I saw scads of puppy pictures on Facebook. But I think everyone was off by a day. Today is the true puppy day. Because it was five years ago today that Honey came to live with us.

Reassuring Your Dog (Who Doesn’t Speak English)

Honey the golden retriever chews her nylabone.

Honey looked worried. We were packing bags at a frantic pace and she didn’t know what was going on. How do you reassure your dog if she doesn’t understand when you talk to her in English?

A Dog Who CAN’T Be Bad

I wonder if I have a problem in the making. It’s a problem I never thought I’d have. My dog can’t be bad. Now how did that happen?

Friends With Dogs

When I adopted my dog Honey, this extrovert had a fantasy. A fantasy of making lots of new friends with dogs. I have made lots of friends with dogs. Unfortunately, most of them live scattered around the country and even the world.

My Dog the Personal Trainer

With bitter cold and a busy schedule, I’ve gained a few pounds. But it’s not my dog Honey’s fault. She’s an excellent personal trainer.
