Lily’s Snow Day

Lily wasn’t sure what to make of snow at first; she shivered pathetically by the door, wondering why I’d inflicted all of this nasty, cold white stuff on her. Then she had a revelation: Snow may be cold, but she can DIG IN IT!!! Her passion for digging had previously been a forbidden one since […]

A Few Moments of Puppy Cuteness

My Muse is currently silent; happily, puppy cuteness speaks volumes. Here are a few adorable moments from Lily’s first two weeks in our family: It’s not a dog’s life yet, but it sure is a puppy’s life.

The Arrival of Lily

This summer’s sad story is finally arriving at a happy ending. (Actually, a beginning…) We still miss Caesar, and we always will, but a new puppy named Lily has arrived to help fill the void he left. We found her at a nearby breeder’s farm, and for Sage and Lily, it was love at first […]

He lounged with them: He walked with them: He even begged for meal worms with them: Alas, although the ducklings tolerate Caesar’s presence, they’ve shown no interest in admitting a small dog into their ranks. Which is just […]

Caesar’s New Look

With a wave of her magical clippers, my friend Angie has given me an entirely new dog. Well, maybe they’re not ACTUALLY magical, but they sure seem that way. Thanks to her grooming prowess, Caesar went from adorable long -haired fluffball… To adorable short-haired fluffball. Who knew you could get two dogs for the price […]
