(3) Comments | Posted January 14, 2015 | 4:02 PM

Some people inherit money; I inherited knowledge: knowledge from my father and also from his father. Since the same rules, boundaries and limitations were taught to me from two generations, it reinforced each lesson they taught me. My father and my grandfather played important roles in...

Remembering Daddy

(10) Comments | Posted February 25, 2013 | 4:25 PM

It's hard to believe that Daddy left us three years ago last week, and strange to realize that most of my current pack never met him. Coco, who's about 12 or 13, did and, of course, Daddy is the one who picked Junior as his successor.

Junior has grown into...

Your Dog May Be Your Best Matchmaker!

(83) Comments | Posted July 31, 2012 | 9:40 AM

I always remind people to ask themselves, not what your dog can do for you, but what YOU can do for your dog. As this stands true, people might not realize the impact their own dog can have on their dating lives and that, in this situation, your dog can...
