Well, it’s Seattle and it’s Thanksgiving week, so naturally it is, as a relative of mine used to say, “raining like stink.” It’s so unremittingly wet that even Bella is willing to wear a raincoat. Yes, a Rain Coat! (Though … Continue reading

Dog Sweater

I know I’ve been bad about the Daily Dog, lately. What can I say? I’m kind of busy with this deadline thing and some holiday stuff… Looks like this may be the first “family Thanksgiving” in many years, so I’m … Continue reading

Bits and Bobs

It’s All About the Socks

Bella has a strange affection for socks–especially the striped one she stole off a stuffed toy elk. Not just the usual “oh, look, a sock to chew on,” thing, but “I think I’ll wear this and look like Alf.” Notice … Continue reading

Oh Tannen Bomb

I know it’s considered not cool, but I kind of like the whole Christmas/Hannukah/KwanzuSoltimas thing. People are all excited and there are nifty decorations and everything smells good–even the bums have a piney-fresh scent. It’s also when you can get … Continue reading
