The pesky neighborhood cats and their poop

Moving into a house with a little backyard was partly for Dagny. She’d have a place to run around and call her own, a place to lie down and enjoy the best that house life has to offer. And be able to go out without supervision. But not so fast. On any given morning, you can find me running outside in my pajamas yelling at two neighborhood cats like a deranged fool — confirming to the curious neighbors that their neighbor is in fact nuts. Whose cats are they, you ask? No clue. And don’t get me wrong — I like cats. I had one growing up. But know what I don’t like?

A dog’s perspective: Dagny takes over the blog

Hi guys, Dagny here. If you don’t know me, I’m that lovable, furry black thing that you sometimes see here on the blog, aka the dog. My mom went out for a bit, so I figured I’d open up that laptop thing that she stares at all day long and see if she keeps my treats in there. But first, I know my mom did a photo post a while back on where we live if you want to see her pics, but I never see any of those things down at my level. You see, I’m little and the world looks very different when you’re down low like I am. I’ll show you the real deal.

Let me take you on my own photo tour of where we live, which I’m told is this place called France. It’s pretty great…

Let’s go!

 

Tips on getting a lost dog to safety (and how Dagny saved the day)

Tired after a  hard day's work...

The French love their pets — no one will debate that. But when loose dogs roam the streets, either because they’re lost or just out for a careless stroll, it seems that passersby don’t really seem to care. So earlier this week when I was out walking Dagny, we came across a soaking wet Bernese Mountain Dog who appeared to be lost. And because I’m the type of person that always helps, I couldn’t just turn my back on him and let him fend for himself and probably get hit by a car. I used Dagny to help get him safely to the neighborhood vet. And yes, this story ends well.

Here’s how Dagny and I helped… and my tips on getting a lost dog to safety.

Anyone who has a pet knows all about that special bond that humans and animals share. Last month was Dagny’s second birthday and when she was relaxing on our bed, I whipped out my camera and got the following shot. And added a quote that is 100% true…
