Summer has arrived and it’s hot in most of the USA and awfully humid in large parts of the country as well. Dogs die all the time from heat-related problems, and not just from being left in cars when it’s 100° outside. We have to understand how dogs get heat-stressed and how to handle [...]
I’m back from Korea. Got in mid-afternoon on Saturday after a long, but uneventful trip involving a taxi, three planes, and a train. Don’t ask… Barbara picked me up at the airport with Abby and Star in the car, which was really, really nice. The girls (all three of them ) were happy [...]
No, nothing bad to report. But I thought I’d explicitly note the absence of new blog entries recently. I’m still in Korea (yes, the meeting is going very well, thanks for asking!) and the weather is good again, after a couple of days of pretty hard rain.

Okay…I’d like to know, who is twittering these days? How are you using it? Do you like it? Have you got it on your blog yet? Who’s on Facebook and what do you think of it?
I started an account on Twitter but it seems like just one more thing I’ve got [...]
It seems like a long story but maybe it’s just that it took us too long to get this gentle-souled boy into good hands. Lucky, an oversized Sheltie, was turned into HS by his owner. HS thought he was a Collie. Because Lucky was an older boy and came with a bottle [...]
Everyone enjoys a sleepy, furry, cuddle
After all of the doom-and-gloom over the past month, punctuated by the occasional travelogue, I thought I’d give a brief update on everybody else.
Star and Abby (whom we adopted ourselves) are doing great. Star continues to be a bit anxious about life in general, but especially about getting enough attention, while Abby is thrilled to [...]
Barbara and I thought that we were getting our debts under control. Over the last three or four years, we’ve found ourselves sinking into a sea of debt, caused in no small part by the vet bills, not to mention the boat. But we thought that we were getting pretty close to paying things off.
