Daily Puppy

Sometimes I can’t start my day without looking at – a website devoted to pictures of dogs, puppies and grownup puppies. They update it every single day, and I will even log on at midnight just to see the dog changeover. I love dogs of all kinds, and I when I look at them, […]

Starving Dog in Art Exhibit

I got forwarded this email and I was absolutely horrified. I cannot believe it. It makes me so upset I can’t even deal. Subject: Boycott Guillermo Vargas at the Biennial Centroamericana Honduras 2008 In 2007, the ‘artist’ Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, […]

Dog Kisses

How do you kiss your dogs? I like to kiss my dogs all the time. Every once in a while, they will let me kiss them on the lips, but it is rare. That is fun though because I really love dog lips because they are thin and black and sometimes shiny like they wear […]

I hike with my two young girl dogs early in the morning, mostly because they expect it, and they both sit on my chest like the winged incubus from “Gothic” until I cannot breathe. A little like waterboarding, this is dogboarding, but it is not torture for information, it is gentle persuasion in order to […]


My first true boyfriend is my beautiful manchild German Shepherd mix Ralph, pronounced “Rayfe” like the actor Ralph Fiennes. I got Ralph from the West Valley animal shelter and it was right when “The English Patient” came out. Ralph was such an injured baby. He had a bad wound on his head from unknown causes, […]
