Old Dog, New Trick

on
It’s the Sunday morning of Thanksgiving weekend.  Kemba has just gotten me up, as usual, with his polite but insistent mewling — at 6AM.  As those of you who know the Beagle Man are well aware, this is not my time of day.  Not by a long shot.  It is, however, Kemba’s. By 6:20 we’re […] [Read More]

A Nice Medium-Sized Dog, Huh?

on
Remember back when Beagle Man wanted a German Shepherd, and Mrs. B wanted nothing bigger than a Beagle?  And this Duck Toller was the Great Compromise — a nice, medium-sized dog?  Hah!  Have you by any chance taken a look at Kemba lately?  Did you happen to notice the length of his limbs?  Steve the Breeder told B-Man […] [Read More]

Heather the Trainer had told me about “Puppy Social,” a drop-in, pay-as-you-go ($10 for the 45-minute session) supervised play group at Paws ‘N Effect in Hamden.  I pride myself on knowing CT geography from my days of following the boys all over the state for their […] [Read More]

Kemba’s First Trip To Vermont

on
Wow — four weeks Kemba had been living in Westport as of last Saturday, and I hadn’t yet taken him on a single major road trip!  (Not counting his original epic drive from Nova Scotia down to CT, that is.)  Had to do something about that, so last weekend Beagle Man and the Missus loaded […] [Read More]

Still Licking

on
My L.A. friend Ilene — we grew up together in Teaneck, NJ — calls me “Wanderlust Dude.”  She’s amazed that every year, within 48 hours after returning from my cross-country road trip, I’ve driven to Montauk, or Vermont, or someplace else that takes a car to get to — after having spent the previous four […] [Read More]

Sa-Jack, Meet Ric-Kemba

on
I’ve been thinking about Sa-Jack, my roommate back in my fraternity days, because later this week is my birthday — and two days later, his.   Sa-Jack, these days, looks like Jon Stewart, and like Jon Stewart, he’s a pretty funny guy.  Always was.  One of his best routines, back in the day, was his riff […] [Read More]
