Autumn Ablaze

We had a week or two of autumn here in the Pacific Northwest—the rains and wind started late, and we saw a bit of fall color before it blew apart and turned to mush. We’re no New England (New England … Continue reading

Hank’s Summer

For Hank, summer days run something like this: wake, yell, eat, burp, pee, poo, scratch, sniff, yell, sniff, yell, swim, swim, shake, sniff, roll, roll, sniff, swim, swim, shake, yell, roll, roll, scratch, pee, yell, eat, yell, pee, yell, yell, sleep. Which brings … Continue reading
