Spring forward

Spring forward

Here in southern Vermont — after what seemed to be an extended period of cold, wet and snowy days and nights — we’ve had a couple of hot days that resulted in pushing spring a bit further forward.  The Peepers started their mating chorus in the swamps and vernal pools, I heard a Hermit Thrush singing this morning, and [...]

Back at the Fireplug Club

Back at the Fireplug Club

Last Sunday in the Canine Chronicle Bobcat Wilson had a front page article about the Saturday shindig at the Fireplug Club. Bobcat doesn’t usually bother with reports on normal evenings at New Dog City’s various watering holes. The Fireplug, in the past, has not had a terrific reputation. Theories abound, but in Bobcat’s opinion the [...]

Cat Chasing

Cat Chasing

I  don’t have a picture of her chasing the cat.  We were in Jamaica, VT and had stopped at an inn where my husband was building a timber frame garage.  Both dogs were in the car, and when we go out we left the back seat windows down almost half way.  A cat came out [...]

Dogs R Us

Dogs R Us

Purchase Painting There’s an interesting – March 26/09 – article on the Discovery Channel’s website  that’s about how dogs have been domesticated and have lived with us for so long that they are now beginning to replace chimpanzees in scientific studies aimed at trying to understand human behavior: http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2009/03/26/dog-human-behavior.html To pet owners, this will not be a big surprise.  We’re [...]

Spring!

Spring!

This oil painting of jaunty Winston trotting through mud makes me think of spring.   Here in Vermont it has been fairly wintry lately – as is usually the case in this climate, but this week every day is warmer than the one before it.  People who live here year round live through a long winter, and this [...]
