Hello, Betsy!

A bit back we were invited over to our friends’ Georgia and Bert’s place for a backyard picnic. I got to meet their new rescue pup, Betsy. She may have stuck her head into some places dogs will always go. That’s what bottle caps are for, I say. She was up for spirited backyard games,…

Found: one more Cape Cod dad and dog photo

My dear wife Karen sent me a text and a photo. She’d found a great picture she’d taken of our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle and I when the three of us were walking the beach of Cape Cod a few weeks back. Yes, it is quite a beautiful moment.

Give Ellie B her toys, floor space … and the beach

So the week following Memorial Day didn’t turn out to be great beach weather for our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle. No worries. She was happy to make the trip, to be with us, the kids, her toys … Wait. Toward the end our our 10 days, the weather turned very warm…

Award-winning rescue mutt

My dear wife Karen had to order a package to arrive in the mail from our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle. She know how much the dog would like opening the darn thing up. And playing with the toy inside. No to mention wearing the award necklace. The Barkies were a big…

Even the dog gets a break

As I work away at home from 8:30 to 4, our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle likes having me here more than usual. I think. She gets more outside breaks than I do, not having any responsibilities to the library. No, I will not put that shovel away yet. Happy first day…
