I Did It

I’ve been at Asherpark now for over a year. During that time I’ve always had a babysitter. Usually Ash has to stay home with me because I get so worried when the people leave. The first year I couldn’t rest when mom left me and Ash in the car. Ash would just fall asleep,...

Serious Thoughts

Sometimes I wish I were different. I am by nature a sober and introverted dog. Perhaps because I never had much affection  in my early years, I do not expect much now. I have been at Asherpark for over a year. During that time my manners have improved. I have learned to sit and...

All For Me

This is my mug shot from the shelter. They took it right after I was arrested in September 2009. I was kinda skinny, had pussy eyes and lots of fleas. Here’s another picture of me taken in the summer of 2010. I’m standing in my front yard at Asherpark. You can see my eyes...

I’m Okay

Ash says I have a poor self image. I disagree. I know my shortcomings. There are many. I’m an old worn out mutt. I lived many years in squalor and chaos. Ultimately the authorities removed me from the only home I ever knew. I was underweight and full of fleas. My bad ear was...

Our Jack

He’s got a head as big as a dinner plate and tiny little paws. His dry eye syndrome makes his eyes weep giving him a sad look. His right ear is thick and gnarled like a prize fighter. Now he has an infection in that ear and it bothers him a lot. Mom gave...

Ash has been doing all the barking lately. Since we’ve got a house full of guest dogs and he’s busy entertaining, I’m covering our bark today. Our mom is kinda camera shy. She likes to take our picture but she really doesn’t want to be in the picture herself. Last week she invited some...

From Jack

Jack doesn’t smile often, but when something really special happens his old face just lights up. Turns out someone found Jack on the internet and sent him a message at BarkingProse. This same kind person is sponsoring Jack through Old Dog Haven. Jack thought all of that was pretty neat. But when he received...

Today I’m barking about Jack. I’ve been thinking about him a lot lately and want people to know how special he is. It hasn’t always been that way. When we first got him through Old Dog Haven he had some baggage. But me and Jack worked things out and now we’re as thick as...

I Saw It

I saw the whole thing, and it didn’t play well. Ash had just returned from the beach. He and Zag were happy and tired. I was relieved to see mom. It was her first time away from me and I couldn’t sleep while she was gone. Tess had enjoyed her time without Ash. She...

A Conundrum

A Conundrum

How can a dog be bad and good at the same time? Or to ask the question another way, when is it good for a dog to behave badly? Last week mom asked Jack to come in the house because she was getting ready to go shopping. It was too hot to take us...
