Summer magic

Summer magic

Someone said that youth is wasted on the young, but Patrick knew in his heart it wasn’t wasted on him.    When I am old and gray and full of sleep, nodding by the fire,  he thought, I will remember this summer of my life and how  nothing in the world can be better than [...]

July 24, 2011

The evening after Ralph and Stanley were married – at 3 A.M. in Washington Square Park the morning same sex marriage finally became legal in the state of New York – they had a rather intense argument.   The two had several important things in common:  They were both canines;  since their youth they’d both been trained for Westminster, had [...]

A questionable romance

A questionable romance

Jackson had been going out with Frannie since early February, and although he was extremely attracted to this hot little fox, he didn’t really trust her.   He’d met Frannie one night in the woods behind the house in which he lived with a man, a woman and a small boy named George who loved him [...]

Sad Rupert

Sad Rupert

Rupert was not used to dwelling on regret.    Back in the long rains of the spring, when almost everyone he knew trooped obediently up the ramp and into the giant wooden ark, Rupert had caught and killed several chipmunks, a couple of star-nosed moles, and a grouchy red squirrel who’d been eluding him since [...]

Zora’s Endless Summer

Zora’s Endless Summer

Back in January, Zora had reluctantly agreed to fill in as director for a summer camp for foxes and guinea pigs in the Catskills.  She was on sabbatical from her regular job teaching yoga and pilates at Princeton University – and at that brief moment of weakness, she’d  had no other summer plans.  Zora had been divorced [...]

The Road to Nowhere

The Road to Nowhere

Summertime, sweet summertime, and Sylvia and Bones were on the Road to Nowhere.   Since January, when they broke loose from the shelter, they’d been searching for home.  On the twelve inch black and white TV that aged  on the table beyond the chain link cages where they’d lived since they were pups, they saw odd [...]

A Rising Star

A Rising Star

Eliza lived in a fifth floor walk-up in Venice, California.  The only neighborhood she could afford, with her miniscule salary, was mostly populated by unemployed cats and mice.  The only dogs she’d ever noticed on her block were just passing through.  Even tough Bulldogs tended to glance around warily and scurry away quickly.   During the [...]

Sylvia’s Regret

Sylvia’s Regret

Sylvia was a stay at home beagle who fervently wished she enjoyed running away, like all the other beagles she knew.  She lived in a small apartment in Greenwich Village with Mr. Pomeroy, an elderly writer who’d made a name for himself with 525 page novels involving vampire cats who disguise themselves as bulldogs and [...]

A Spring Gathering

A Spring Gathering

Lately there had been so much rain, and after endless evenings dining alone on the same old kibble, the prospect of the spring gathering had lightened his spirits considerably.  Sebastian began to wonder if something was wrong with his memory.   Wrong date?  Wrong hour?  A week ago when he’d received the call, his mouth had [...]

The Spring Dance Season

The Spring Dance Season

Alison (vocals and jew’s harp), Mose (keyboard and harmonica), and Wallace (bass fiddle) were unable to practice very much during the long northeastern winter.  Conditions in the kennel were not exactly ideal for playing music.  A pack of 15 stray mutts in various sizes, colors and temperaments were unceremoniously dropped off by the surly dog [...]
