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 [...]

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

Gregor began life as a Sheep Dog on a farm in the Lake District of England.  At a young age he learned how to follow Mr. Tupman’s whistle, dash around the hills chasing the odd-smelling wooly beasts until they became a tight herd that moved in one direction.  During the long nights in spring when [...]

Louie’s challenge

Louie’s challenge

Although Louie had a reputation of being a steady, patient therapist who had helped hundreds of dogs and cats recover from various kinds of emotional distress – everything from the trials of living with difficult human beings to adjusting to radio fences -  he met his match when Cyrus walked into his office and curled up on [...]

Finn and Noelle paint the town?

Finn and Noelle paint the town?

For several months, Finn and Noelle had been looking forward to the annual Black Tail Ball at the exclusive Cat Scratch Club in Manhattan.

The Disappointing Guests

The Disappointing Guests

Although Leo appreciated the surprise birthday dinner his friend Finn lovingly gave for him, the invited guests had been rude. When the standing rib roast was set in front of Finn to carve, the Pit bull, Dalmation, a morose Beagle, two Labs, and one whiny Corgi had spontaneously leapt on the table and fought voraciously [...]

Willis’s Dilemma

Willis’s Dilemma

Since he was a six week old puppy, Willis had lived uncomfortably with the acclaimed botanist, Mrs. Chipperfield (who specialized in orchids) and her brown and fidgety cat, Babs. So much of his time was taken with Mrs. Chipperfield’s insomnia and her rants – for some unexplainable reason, always directed at Willis – about the current condition of the [...]

Enid’s Dilemma

Enid’s Dilemma

Usually Enid and Fred got along like a house on fire.   But recently Enid had read that  hard winter weather tended to give dogs a strange new energy that  manifested itself in destructive behavior.   High on the list of destructive behaviors, the article said,  was chasing the cat.   When she noticed  a curious sinister  glow  [...]

Them Mid winter blues

Them Mid winter blues

Although January was at its end, Meriweather realized, to his chagrin, winter was far from over.  Lately it seemed as if his bad habits  – barking neurotically in the middle of the night,  licking too much, and stealing cheese from the kitchen counter twice in one week  – were overwhelming the good ones (way too many of these to [...]
