For the love of dance

For the love of dance

When she was a young pup, growing up on the back streets of Glasgow, Zora had taken ballet lessons from a  certain Mr. Crupp.  Mr. Crupp was a bird-like Doberman who had once, briefly,  danced in the Bolshoi.  He was a bitter dog who had known happier times, and he carried  regret on his collar.

A Philosophical Canine

A Philosophical Canine

Quinn spent at least two hours a day thinking about esoteric subjects such as why dogs have such a short lifespan compared to turtles or parrots, or how, jokes aside, did porcupines manage to mate.

Willis’s Dilemma

Willis’s Dilemma

Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day

When Quentin heard the news that Punxsutawney Phil had failed to see his shadow he decided to wear his green shirt in honor of imminent spring.  He suddenly realized he was having a rare happy moment.  Better try to enjoy it and not  question where it came from, as he usually did.  Lately he’d been [...]
