Walk ‘n Wag and the Year of the Brown Earth Dog

Walk ‘n Wag and the Year of the Brown Earth Dog

Walk ‘n Wag, on October 6, is one of my favorite events of the whole year. I love that having so much fun with our dogs helps raise money for the Montgomery Humane Shelter to help other dogs. I love seeing my friends out in the sunshine at the Blount Cultural Park with their dogs. […]

A Trip About a Dog

Typically, I blog about quaint small towns with delicious pizza or my first trip to a classic tourist destination. But today’s post is a little different. Don’t worry though, there’s still food involved. My husband, David, and I don’t travel much during the holidays, most of our family members live within a half-hour drive. Our […]

Our Dog’s Sunday

We’d been saving newspaper for about six weeks, and it was time to take it to the shelter. Sometimes the stack of newspaper gets large enough that you worry about the perceptions that visitors might have. The shelter always wants newspaper to line the puppy cages with, so we loaded up the dog (because she […]

Tis the Season for Allergies!

Spring approaches, peeking around the cold corners of winter. I sense it on these warmer afternoons when the air smells like promise. The dogs are so slap-happy to get some time to lie in the afternoon sun before a chill brings their little bodies back to the warm house. I love spring and all its […]

Neighborhood Goes to the Dogs

Neighborhood Goes to the Dogs

Usually when you read or hear that a neighborhood has “gone to the dogs,” that’s a bad thing.  It implies decay, disinvestment, etc. But in Montgomery’s historic Garden District, it means the neighborhood is celebrating National Night Out with its annual Pups On Parade.  Last night was the sixth annual occurrence of this mile-long parade […]

For the Love of a Dog

I recently helped find a home for a dog whose owner was forced to move to a nursing home. I did not know this man; I did not know the dog either, but a home health nurse called me when she found the dog had simply been put outside to fend for itself. Maybe a […]

What a blessing it is that spring is finally here! Days of watching gray skies and drizzle have given way to sunshine and warm breezes. It’s sort of a rebirth, a clean slate, a new chance. Each spring, I feel motivated to do something new. Why not? Life is about learning and experiencing joy, and […]

River Dogs!

Last weekend I performed as part of the 75th anniversary of the Coon Dog Cemetery. We had a fabulous time and shared the stage with some great musicians including Muscle Shoals’ Travis Wammack. The cemetery is outside of Tuscumbia and about a four hour ride from Montgomery, so we went up the night before the […]

While some sports enthusiasts wait anxiously for the Super Bowl every year, we dog-lovers wait for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Super Bowl of dog shows. The dog show world can be just as competitive and even non-dog owners don’t miss this annual televised event. It’s hard not to be captivated by the […]
