I’m Leaving Now

I always knew this day would come, I just didn’t know when. Endings come too fast when you’re happy, and I’ve been so very happy at Asherpark. It’s a beautiful warm sunny day. It’s the kind of day that makes your heart ache for something you can’t quite explain. I’m leaving this evening. Mama...

Happy Birthday Journey

I can hardly believe little Journey is one year old today. It was only a few months ago she was a tiny pup with teeth like needles. Now she’s all grown up and auditioning to be a therapy dog. I can’t wait to see what Journey learns next. Since mom started training us mutts, I’ve had...

She was my one true love. Nobody can ever replace Tess in my heart. I loved everything about her: the good, the bad, and the silly. We were joined at the hip and heart. We did everything together except run off to the ravine. Despite all her flaws, Tess never dug under the fence...

Don’t Know What To Say

I just read Journey’s first Bark. Wow! I knew that little mutt was special, but she never told me about meeting Tess on the rainbow bridge. I’m having a hard time putting it all together. It’s like part of Tess came back in Journey’s body, but I can’t figure out what that means. It kinda...

My First Bark

Excuse me if I look a little disheveled. I was busy playing in the dirt when Ash told me to come post my first Bark. I know Ash needs help running BarkingProse and I really do want to do my share, but it’s hard to get started. Ash told me to think about something...

This has been a hard month for Ash. It was one year ago that he lost his best friend, Tess. I know it’s on his mind even though he can’t bring himself to talk about it. For months there had been something not quite right with Tess. Mom took her to four different vets...

We Are One Now

Did you ever want something so bad you couldn’t even talk about it? Just thinking about it made your heart ache? Since Mama and Shiloh showed up three years ago all I ever wanted was for us to get along as a pack. When you’re a pack you move together, you think the same...

I Did It

You can rest assured it wasn’t my idea to go to dog school. I was willing to ride along when Journey went to puppy class but that’s as close to school as I wanted to get. While Journey struggled through her classes, I’d sleep in the car. Afterwards me and mom would take a...

All The News That’s Fit To Print

It’s hard to know where to begin. Me and mom have been so busy teaching Journey and taking care of Shiloh, we haven’t had time to write. Maybe that’s not the whole truth. We were busy, yes, but mostly we were living in the moment and not taking the time to think about our...

Wishing Her Well

Everyone says I have a pretty face. I guess so. I have dark brown eyes that betray my feelings. My cream color makes me stand out in a crowd. Beauty is as beauty does. How a mutt looks doesn’t matter as much as what a mutt does. Mom says my spirit is pure. I’m...
