Sibyl’s delusion

Sibyl’s delusion

Although Sibyl came across to others as a friendly dog, eager to please, sociable and fun to be around, she had another, less obvious side to her personality.   She was under the impression (something she read in an online magazine to which she could never remember the URL )  that she could gain extra attention [...]

The Return of the Woofers

The Return of the Woofers

Mose, keyboard and harmonica, Wallace, bass fiddle, and Alison, vocals and jew’s harp were taking a well deserved break after a crazy summer on the road.  Their rusty 1979 Chevy van, Bobby Johnson – named after their favorite player of the blues, had miraculously made it from home in New York, NY in mid-June to San Francisco [...]

An Aversion to Sticks

Brief Encounter

Brief Encounter

Thomas had never before met a wolf as charming as Radar.  The fact that  Radar only spoke and understood an obscure Mongolian dialect only added to her many wonders.  Dog was such a crude and simple language – so refreshing to meet someone who didn’t have a clue what he was saying.  He found he could talk [...]

The fox went out

The fox went out

Makiko enjoyed formal events.   After a long afternoon tailing a wild turkey through the trees until she was finally able to tackle it, wring its neck, and triumphantly carry it in her  strong  jaws  back to the den to share with the others over a well deserved bottle of South African Syrah, she donned [...]

Marcus and Jack go on Vacation

Marcus and Jack go on Vacation

Although Marcus and Jack lived together (with a couple of humans) in an apartment in Queens, they were only able to spend quality time with each other when they went on vacation, usually to Santa Fe. At home, Jack was often away, hanging out (and sometimes getting into serious trouble) with a pack of stray [...]
