The Kids Of Bryant Elementary Remember Ricky

on
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that last fall I started an after-school writing club for students at Bryant Elementary School in Bridgeport.  We’ve been meeting every Thursday since then, and some of the kids’ work appears on our blog, Is It Friday Yet?  I’ve brought Ricky in to club meetings from time to time, and […] [Read More]

Goodbye To a Good, Good Dog

on
This morning I drove to Southport Harbor for my daily excursion with Ricky.  Only there was no Ricky. That’s how I’ve been dealing with things since he died a week ago:  I do a lot of the same stuff I always did with him.  I go to our places, and I think, and I walk.  […] [Read More]

My Weekend As Chopped Liver

on
Remember that weekend last month when I had three “accidents” in the Vermont house, and Beagle Man banished me for the rest of the season?  But I knew I’d get another chance when his grand-nephew Teddy came up?  Well, this was the weekend.  And honestly — I think I would have been better off if […] [Read More]

Cooper, I’m Feelin’ Ya

on
Beagle Man, Mrs. B, and their friends watched  this video the whole weekend and could barely breathe, they were laughing so hard.  Me, I’ve seen it at least 100 times myself — and I still can’t figure out what Cooper’s doing wrong. The Roof Rack Report (#roofrackreport on Twitter, for those who follow me already on […] [Read More]

Mistaken Identity?

on
  Item seen on Dogster earlier this week: When you first brought your dog home, her name was Daisy — but now you’ve been together a while, she’s more of a Digger.  Or maybe your gentlemanly Daniel has become a boisterous Danny.  Toni Perling says it’s more than okay to change your dog’s name over […] [Read More]

The Wolf Man Howls

on
I considered calling this post “Stupid Human Tricks.”  Greg’s friend Maggie brought this very strange T-shirt to the Vermont house — with a wolf wearing Bose headphones and a nose ring.  Leave it to Beagle Man to put it on over his hoodie and declare it his new grilling outfit.  I kid you not:  There […] [Read More]
