I am Gone

I crossed the rainbow bridge early this week when my physical body failed me. My people wept as they wished me godspeed. I was already focused on the road ahead, so I barely noticed the vet who so gently helped me on my way. I had been in ill health for several months. I...

Me and My Baby

No matter how bad things got, I always had my baby. They took everything else away from me except for Shiloh and my will to live. But in the end Shiloh and I both survived and began our new life at Asherpark. My background is complicated. There’s definitely a coyote in my lineage. Just...

When The Barking Stopped

I’m not sure exactly what turned our barks silent. Maybe it was the constant stress of Tess wanting to kill Shiloh. Maybe it was because Mom was so disappointed how things turned out. Or maybe there just wasn’t a lot of fun stuff to bark about for a while. Me and mom knew we’d...

I arrived at Asherpark in January 2010 straight from the joint,  an aging ex-con suddenly given a second chance at life thanks to Old Dog Haven. My new family chose me because they thought with my dark and brooding looks, no one else would want me. If you’ve read the early barks about me,...

What’s Next?

When I don’t get my way, I tend to sulk. Mom says I have the most expressive face of all us dogs and I use it to my advantage. I can’t remember what had me looking so unhappy in this picture, but I did everything short of weeping in my hanky to impress upon...

If you’re wondering how come we don’t bark much at Asherpark anymore, you don’t have to look any farther than my big smiling face. It’s a long story, but basically me and mom are locked in a battle over who runs our pack. I’ve been through all kinds of training. I’m part border collie...

Mom says I have a far away look in my eyes in this picture. I guess I do. The picture was taken right after Tess jumped Shiloh and mom got bit. Sometimes I wish I could make time go backwards. I would wind the clock back until it was just me and Codie at...

If you have been following The DailyBark, you know that I have had some female problems. I have been taking antibiotics for the past few days. I am not chewing myself as vigorously and am starting to feel better. This morning I asked Ash to check me out. Being the good soul that he...

I feel violated and I am not one bit happy! Perhaps everything was done with good intentions, but I did not appreciate the poking and prodding of my personal areas. For several years I have had intermittent bouts of chewing and scratching in areas best left unmentioned. At first it was thought that my...

Crazy Good Fun!

You won’t believe what happened last night…..Shiloh and me spent fifteen minutes playing the mouth game and rough housing with each other. I know it’s hard to believe. I didn’t believe it at first myself. We had all just finished dinner. With a full belly I get a sudden burst of energy and usually...
