The Time of Troubles

It began slowly and was perplexing to my people. I started to resist my daily walks, gently at first and then with more insistence. The man didn’t know what to do with me. He thought I only wanted to walk with my lady, but that was not the case. I only wanted to go...

It must be a special time. They put up colored lights and my lady is in the kitchen more than usual. That’s fine with me because I have an urgent need to know where she is at all times, and when she is in the kitchen I do not have to get up and...

My Second Week

People come and go from the house. The older son left and was replaced by his two younger brothers. They were both very nice to me. At first they joked about my weight, but soon they were taken with my personality and began to see my value. At night I was allowed to sleep with one son...

They told me I was going to see the vet. I didn’t believe them. She put the leash on me and started to lead me towards the car.  Where was I going? I didn’t want to go to a new place where I would be afraid all over again. Had I done something wrong?...

How my life has changed. I no longer sleep until mid morning. Apparently the woman is used to getting up early and the house dogs expect their morning meal by 6am. We all eat the same thing – kibbles made from duck and sweet potato and the food she cooks for us. Ash calls...

I didn’t realize the severity of my own condition until I saw what other dogs could do. Asher races around the property as if he has wings. The lady lovingly calls him flyboy. Even Tess can run. She can’t leap the low fences like Asher, but she almost keeps up with him when they...

I’ve been asked to introduce a Barker who is no longer with us. Darcy was the first foster dog we got through Old Dog Haven. His people couldn’t keep him anymore so we brought him home to Asherpark. Everyone adored him. He was able to bark his story even though he only stayed with...

Tess is mad because I haven’t barked about her. I really like her a lot and we play together all the time. Our people call us the evil twins. You can guess why. Here are some pictures of her. She’s sleeping right now. She spent all day chasing goats and playing bump and run...

Yesterday our new friend came for dinner. We met her through Old Dog Haven. She has eight rescue dogs right now. She brought a silly little Beagle girl on a blind date for Jack. It didn’t work out. Jack didn’t even sniff her and the little Beagle just ran around in circles until she...

Yesterday Tess and I played with the goats. OK, maybe we dogs had more fun than the goats, but everybody got to run around and enjoy the sunshine. Tess has a real strong herding instinct. Me, I just like to mix it up with the goats. When they get out I chase ’em back...
