Photo Shoot

I don’t know whose dogs these are, nor who the photographer is, but I really wish my dogs were this cooperative when I try to take their pictures! I can never get all three of them paying attention at the same time, much less doing synchronized expressions.

If you are the photographer, please let us know – I’d love to publicize your brand here on the blog!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Meet Checkers!

So look who came to live at my house this weekend! This is Checkers! She belonged to a breeder in West Virginia, but turned out to have demodectic mange, which is hereditary, meaning she couldn’t be shown. The breeder thought she’d have an awful time finding a home for Checkers as “just” a pet, but it turns out we have a mutual friend who hooked us up.

She’s a 1-year old Treeing Walker Coonhound, and you know how I feel about hounds! I’m in love already.

Welcome to the crazy house, Checkers!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
