Hank’s Happy 15

It’s that time of year again—our wonderful Hank Williams, Sr. is now fifteen years old! That’s something like 93 in big-dog years and one more reason never to call him “Junior”. So what did Hank do on his extra-special day? First, he … Continue reading

Unleashed!

A project funded by dogs, for dogs? How delightful. It’s about time Hank used his own credit card, anyway. Hey there, lovelies! One of Hank’s favorite folks is launching a business venture here in Seattle that Hank would have loved to participate in … Continue reading

Bad Luck + Trouble

Dreamin’ Wild

Hank supposes it’s inevitable. Inevitable that as he ages and reflects, he’ll dream of returning to the Ponderosa pines and blue skies of his eastern Washington puphood.  And once he’s there, it’s likely he’ll take a good sniff around. Ah, the 1970s. Ah, feathered hair. Ah, wall-to-wall carpeting. Ah, creative … Continue reading

Back at the Ranch

Bitchin’ Camaro

Hank’s been having a wee midlife crisis.  He’s having a tougher time getting around lately: his get-up-and-go has been running a bit rusty and boy, do his dogs get tired. How did this happen? And when? What’s a fellow to do when the years catch up all at once and insist … Continue reading

Hank’s Monster Weekend

As usual, Hank’s weekend was full of beer tasting and BBQ-ing and socializing, but he managed to squeeze in a little photography, too. That dog. It’s kind of amazing what he can do without thumbs or a decent camera. Anyhow, Hank’s photos for the PNA’s Summer Beer Taste are now up … Continue reading

HANKZILLA!

Wouldn’t you know it? Our cantankerous Hank will be lumbering around and bellowing some at this weekend’s 9th Annual Summer Beer Taste—aka BEERZILLA—and he surely hopes to see you there. Cap’s the designated driver but don’t call him Shirley. (Though … Continue reading

Greenwood Car Show 2014

It’s almost here! Our neighborhood’s heralded Greenwood Car Show this Saturday from 8am — 4pm. Each year, as Hank cruises the mile-and-a-half hootenanny along Greenwood Avenue, he rejoices in the civic good this event supports across our community, and the great dog and people-watching to be had. He’s … Continue reading

Memphis Belles

Each year around Memorial Day, the skies far above the House of Hank resonate with the deep hum of four engines and in short order a whole lot of history rumbles by. At which point the airspace immediately around the House fills with a lot of Whoopee!-ing and Oh-boy!-ing … Continue reading

Hanksaga

Hank couldn’t resist the opportunity to Viking himself and Cap today, wishing he could make it to the British Museum’s epic exhibition. Poor Cap isn’t terribly tech savvy, so he has to live with the results of Hank’s marauding tendencies: You can go Viking … Continue reading

Cake Rex

Hank has been a bit unhinged since his last birthday. “Unhinged” cannot possibly be a good omen for his dotage. You see, Hank has become obsessed, and we’re talking more than the usual Hank obsessed, more than the run-of-the-mill Hank unhinging du jour….this is more like … Continue reading

Hank’s Happy 14!

Amazing as it may seem, our Hank is 14 years old today. Yes, it’s his birthday, and he’s been doing a little celebrating. The sun is shining—miracle of miracles—so our equally sunny spring chicken started his birthday off right:  with bacon … Continue reading
