Dog a day pics

I decided when Kuiper arrived that I had finally come up with a compelling reason to use the Instagram account I set up just so I could try Hyperlapse when that first came along.  I’m going to try posting at least one picture of at least one of our animals every day.  Seems a cliché […]

There and back again. Again.

Dad and I made a run for puppy supplies and other things this morning.  The first thing I did on entering the pet supply store was ask about something that happens to be locked in one of those manager lockup doodads, which meant they had to keep it at the counter while we completed the rest of […]

Dog Brain is the only thing in play when you get socked in with something like that.  Your body doesn’t want to […]

Rainbows and Subarus

Spent a lovely day with my parents.  They joined Lyra and I at the dog park, followed by lunch and a trip to the Subaru dealership just to look at their crossover line (where we met a salesman who used to live in Wimberly and Marble Falls, of all places), and finally refreshing my rainbow […]
