Feral Cats & Hunter Dogs

Feral Cats & Hunter Dogs

As soon as we arrived on St George Island, the dogs quickly transformed into ‘Hunter Mode’. The feral cats are former house cats left behind by terrible owners who once rented houses on this island.   At first glance they look like domesticated cats – of the tiger, yellow, black or white varieties – but on closer inspection there’s a mangy, [...]

Bird Man Walking & Truckin’ III

Bird Man Walking & Truckin’ III

BIRD MAN WALKING: A birder named Bradford Storey is walking across the country  with his Siberian Husky, Xena.  His trip is partially an effort to raise money for the Audubon Society’s “Important Bird Areas” program.  The blog has lists of birds he’s seen, people who have helped him along the way, and many updates on XENA, [...]

Truckin’ with the dogs I

Truckin’ with the dogs I

Left Vermont on a late January morning.  10 degrees with stiff sharp breeze, spitting snow, driveway shiny with frozen version of recent rainfall.  Started out by losing the leashes. Although we’d packed the pod in the truck bed the night before,  we had to repack it.     Loaded two and a half large purple bags [...]

VT to the Forgotten Coast

VT to the Forgotten Coast

Apologies for the break.  We’ve been traveling.  Dogs – it turns out – are far more intrepid travelers than people are.  Although it seems that Routine is carved into domestic dog behavior, most dogs easily adapt to new situations.   Or at least Pepper and Radar do.  They love adventure, even if it means riding in the cab part of [...]

Bad Habits

Bad Habits

When a stick-less January 1st crossed his mind for the hundredth time since he’d woken up this morning, Sebastian sighed.   He fervently wished his habit hadn’t spun out of control in 2010, but it was hard to ignore the fact that 35 sticks a day was bad for his health.   Although Sebastian’s number one New [...]

the grim season ain’t halloween

hey, Radar. Good walk today, Radar. Though I don’t get why I have to wear this stupid coat. I don’t even look like a deer. did hear a coupla guns going off in the woods this morning. Wonder if they got a dog? Maybe a dog who wasn’t wearing one of these fashionable coats? Some [...]

st george island & apalachicola

st george island & apalachicola

St George Island is a skinny barrier dune about 20 miles long – 3 roads run the length, with many short cross roads.  Scrubby woods, pine and evergreen jungle.  2 kinds of palms – tall skinny kind and shorter variety that resembles a strange large pineapple.  Small inlets like canals, long beach on gulf side, rocky edge on bay [...]

Sweet Noelle

Sweet Noelle

Noelle  Christopher died last Thursday, February 4th, 2010.     She was around ten years old.  Her Vet was almost certain she would be gone by Christmas, but she enjoyed the holidays and snow in Vermont with her family, and was happy and lively right up to the day before she died.  A sad time, and yet – she [...]

Noel report & heading south

Noel report & heading south

Awhile ago I reported in this blog that my sister’s hound, Noel – a PBGV – had cancer.  (In the portrait above, Noel is on the left.)   The vet thought she’d be in dog heaven by Christmas. well, she’s still around, still barking and running around and playing with Finn and Leo and her family.  Still has cancer, but [...]

back in the saddle

back in the saddle

Or maybe ‘back in the doghouse’ is more appropriate.  It has been about 5 1/2 months since I last posted.  No excuses.   The painting above  is a 4′ x 4′ oil on baltic birch panel, and is titled ‘The Cocktail Party’.    It, and another that I’ll insert below were featured at  an ‘Art of [...]
