The Light in August

The Light in August

Lately, Abbie was having trouble relating to other dogs.  The summer had been socially quite insane with pigeon roasts, late night water keg bashes, and multiple dinner and cocktail (aka butt sniffing) parties.   She’d enjoyed some amazing meals – especially the grilled mackerel with blueberry sauce the gay Doberman had served at his wedding breakfast – and an especially [...]

The Metamorphosis

The Metamorphosis

Lately Kafka realized he should probably feel good about his name.  In the puppy mill his name had been number 543.   For years, he’d  been uncomfortable about the fact that George, the tall man with whom Kafka now happily lived, had named him after a long-dead writer who was famous for writing a story [...]

That second martini

That second martini

Ever since his bone digging championship days in high school,  Morris had considered himself  socially popular.  He’d earned a Masters at Harvard in cat psychology, landed a job in a research lab where he was paid very well to study the tendency of cats to suddenly run away from home.  Morris had always been the [...]

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 [...]

Shedding Season

Shedding Season

Guston, the vampire dog,  lived a life of quiet desperation.  Ever since he could remember he’d had a frivolous obsession with his fur.    He vaguely realized it might be related to the behavior of Alison Strange, the woman with whom he shared an apartment and a bed.  Alison woke up every morning at 6  – just [...]
