I’ve never had to watch a dog die. When my childhood dog wasn’t doing well, and it was time to say goodbye, I was a senior in college. It was just after September 11th, and just before my birthday in late September. I remember my dad telling me over the phone they were going to… Continue reading The Things People Don’t Talk About When Their Dog Is Dying
Happy National Puppy Day! To celebrate I just uploaded a bunch of Toby and Maddux puppy photos! Enjoy.
Seriously ….. if it’s snowing, Maddux refused to go outside. He curls himself up under a blanket and that’s where he stays all day.
It’s sorta suprising I have done this before, but it was both Toby and Maddux’s first ever visit with Santa! Both of them liked it, and were super good about sitting with him. Although the question we all want to know is what they asked him to bring them for Christmas. Any guesses?
Toby loves his cannoli dog treats. Since the very first time his Aunt Irene brought him one a few years ago for Christmas, this dog goes insane for them. And, since we are all under the, “Toby gets what Toby wants” spell, he has been getting them pretty much every time she sees him, instead… Continue reading Toby and His Cannoli

When my aunt came to visit, she immediately noticed… Continue reading Mornings With Maddux: Nature Preserve
When it comes to guilt trips, Toby is pretty darn good about it. Because of the chemo, Toby can’t be in public places. So, I had to unexpectedly leave him with my Dad this weekend. I was going to leave Maddux, too, but because I was so upset about other things that had happened on… Continue reading Toby’s Guilt Trip
Almost immediately after Toby’s second chemo treatment, my aunt from Virginia came to visit with her two dogs and we took Toby, Maddux and everyone else up to the lake for the weekend. He didn’t get to play with his relatives, but he did have a super spoiled weekend of treats and love. Toby loved… Continue reading Car Rides, Outdoor Days and Pet Fest
Seriously cannot get enough of their cuteness!
Toby and Maddux have a new brother and sister. But this time, they have feathers and not fur. Yup, that’s right, we have birds again. I say again because when I got Toby I already had a parakeet named Sky, who was the best bird anyone could ask for. He was totally bonded to me… Continue reading Our New Feathered Friends
