    Should I call the police/animal warden?

    My neighbor has the most annoying dog...it used to be kept in a pen & they'd let it out to run every few days but it would come to my yard to use the bathroom! Plus it would bark constantly. It would also somehow get loose & chase cars down the alley. I thought that was the worst until...

    How smart are our dogs - really??

    Our dogs are much smarter than we often give them credit for & they frequently prove it to us; as Zoe did today! I had thrown away leftover beef stew & sat down to watch TV. I thought I heard Zoe in the trash can so I called for her & then heard her rooting around in her food bowl & drinking...

    Zoe & the mouse (loooong but funny)

    For some reason the past 5-6 months I've had a mouse problem! I thought I'd gotten rid of them as I didn't catch any for 2-3 weeks. Tuesday morning I was in the kitchen & all the sudden the dogs took off running into the dining room scratching & sniffing at the heat register. I thought they...

    If you have boxers, you've had a day like this...

    After Zoe's incident early this morning I should have known it would be one of those days...It was storming when we got up so no one would go outside to go potty. I went & worked out & met a friend back at home to go to lunch. When the friend came on the porch Harley was growling & barking at...

    What to do when your life gets flipped upside down...

    I don't know why I'm going to let this out to people I've never met, maybe it's easier, but I have to get this out before I burst inside. First off, I've been with Blake off & on for nearly 8 yrs. When we were together for 5 yrs we had lots of issues & he began cheating on me, he would...

    Cover Monsters

    Zoe always tries to get under the covers when we go to bed at night & Harley sleeps right between me & his daddy with his head on the pillows. Last night Zoe was able to get under the covers but Harley blocked her only way out. First Harley laid right on top of her, so she growled. Harley...
