These are a few of my favorite things

I put a comment on a picture today. It was of an adorable doodle named Bernie and the picture featured his fantastic nose. That made me start thinking about my favorite parts of Callie, and made me curious if there were people who felt the same way, even if it wasn't on the same doodle part.

For me it's the nose. I love Callie's nose so much that it is ridiculous. It's huge. It's black. It's shiny. She has allergies so it's frequently runny. I don't care. There's just something about… Continue

The Christmas Visitor

Have you ever heard yourself saying something, and even as the words are leaving your mouth your inner voice is going "STOP!!!!!"? I had one of those moments about two weeks ago when a co-worker asked me for the number of a place to board her dog over the holidays.

What I should have said..."Sure - here's the number to Barking Hound Village"

What I actually said..." I'll keep Zoey while you're gone"

So, fast-forward to yesterday, when Zoey, the adorable 6.5lb… Continue

This blog is to ask (beg) for advice started out as cute naughtiness, but Callie escalated into major destruction today...she broke, pulled down, and shredded the blinds in my den. Our schedule hasn't really changed, so if it is boredom, it's sudden onset boredom. I really don't know how to prevent this (first step of course will be confinement again when I'm gone). Any words of wisdom would be welcome!!!!!!!!!! .

Really're that smart???

Now, I've read all the articles that say poodles are one of the smartest dog breeds. Ostensibly, their intelligence is on par with a 3 year old's (I remain a little skeptical on that...I don't know any three year old humans who try to eat their own barf). Last night though, Callie displayed an intelligence that I found a little disconcerting. I was in the guest room/office working (love working for 4 hours after's just been a super week like that) and Callie was laying on the bed,… Continue

Naughty Doodle Day

I do not know what got into Callie yesterday, but she out did herself in naughtiness. I haven't seen her so ill-behaved since the first week that I had her, before school and her learning all the "rules". It started Saturday morning...I woke up and the Callinator was laying at the foot of my bed, gnawing on my book. Not so good. We move on from that and I bundle up for our traditional long saturday morning walk. That starts out fine, until Callie decided it would be a WAY better idea to pee on… Continue

Sometimes I Don't Mind

Below are the lyrics to an oldish song (title above) by the Suicide Machines. This is a love song to a dog, and thought that some of y'all might enjoy the lyrics!

Sometimes I Don't Mind lyrics

There's something with the way you walk

There's something there that lights a spark inside of me

And it makes me want to sing - Makes me forget everything

There's something there inside your eyes

Lets me know you'd never lie - You fill me up and I know what you… Continue

A sad commentary (and a true story)

I was on a date recently and kept thinking "I wish I was at home, hanging out with Callie. That would be way better than this date". Needless to say, Bachelor #1 should not plan on a date #2!

A sweetheart, even when asleep!

I let Callie sleep in my bed with me...I know I should make her sleep in her very own bed, but she's so delicously snuggly! Callie's general MO is that she gets in my bed, and while I'm still awake reading she comes and lays her head on my chest so I can pet her ears and nose. Then, when I'm ready to go to sleep, she goes to the end of the bed, curls up and goes to sleep. This morning, when I woke up, she was snuggled up next to me, and her paw was on my hand, like she was holding my hand while… Continue
