posts and photos to bring joy, levity, and laughter to your day


For the last several months, I've noticed something bothering my dog's mouth. Hershey has been licking more and rubbing his face into the ground. I decided to take him to the veterinarian. He assured me all was well with my dog.

But the behavior continued.

I went to another veterinarian for a second opinion. He assured me that Hershey was fine. When I asked about the odd behavior he told me that sometimes dogs just do funny things.

I wasn't satisfied.

The Creature From the Black Lagoon Invaded Our House (No Really!)

The dog bowl sat empty as if someone had dusted every crumb from the bottom. I thought I’d left a cup at the bottom of the quart sized dish before we disappeared for a weekend getaway.

Maybe I’d been mistaken.

Hershey, our five -pound superpup, squatted next to his bowl stared at me with his irresistible, hope-filled eyes. I filled the quart-sized bowl so full a few stray pieces bounced across the wood floor.

One of the perks of having a small dog is this bowl will last a month, I thought.

The next morning, the bowl sat empty. Maybe I only dreamed of filling the bowl. Maybe I’d been so tired from the trip my memory had blurred. I’d been sleep deprived after all.
