A Chill in the Air
Dr. Husband started a new rotation with a 14-hour on-call shift Friday evening. Then another Saturday evening. And the 14- to 15-hour shifts (both day and night) will continue for over a month. We knew this rotation was coming, but it’s still pretty lousy. Anyhow, since Ivan is a first-year resident (also known as an…
Dog Days of Summer
The dog days of summer are upon us. They have been, I suppose, for just over a month now, according to the expression, and there are still a few days left. We’ve certainly noticed the heat. With a full week in the 90s, the grass turned brittle, the trees drooped and the dogs were less…
We’ve had some pretty hot days recently, temps hovering in the low to mid-90s. Our house stays pretty cool, thankfully, maintaining the chilly evening air that we let in as we sleep. First thing in the mornings, we close up all of the windows and draw some blinds. It works pretty well. We’ve only used…
Whipped Cream for the Win
I posted not too long ago about a little trip we took with Babe to Starbucks. We treated ourselves to some lovely caffeinated drinks and Babe got her own cup of house-made whipped cream. Babe loves whipped cream and, as it turns out, so does Banjo. We try not to give them too much since…
A Backyard of One’s Own
For 2 years we lived in a 2-bedroom apartment on the third floor of a Brooklyn walk-up. We did not have a backyard, like most people in Brooklyn. We shared the streets. We shared the parks. For 2 years before Brooklyn, we lived in the Caribbean. Our studio apartment in Grenada afforded us many things:…
This is the Birthday Cake We Gave Our Dog
Our dog’s birthdays are celebrated in the same fashion as human’s–with cake and festive hats. We get dog-safe cakes at specialty shops and our pups love them.
Babe is a Blonde… or Maybe a Brunette
I got some wigs. I’m not really sure why except that I really enjoy using props when I take photos and I’m always looking for something fun and new. For example, I have a roll of burlap, two 10×20-ft. sheets of muslin fabric, a 6×35-ft. roll of white paper and three 2-ft.-sq. vinyl decorative background…
The Pig Dog Calendar
Babe reached a cuteness level that called for her very own calendar!
Babe Got a New Dog Costume: Lion Mane
Dog costumes are nothing new in our house, but this one really stood out among the others. The lion’s mane was a huge hit for us and we have photos to prove it.
The Howl-idays are Coming!
It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without dog pee and farts, I guess.
The air is cool; the leaves are changing and pumpkins are everywhere! Now if I can just teach Banjo to stop trying to eat the decorative ones…
Cantaloupe: Turns Out It’s Good for Dogs
I mean, it’s not like we didn’t research whether or not dogs can have cantaloupe before giving it to The Pig and Banjo. Or… well, no, we didn’t. But we also didn’t give them cantaloupe. We just let them chew the rinds. And have a little taste. Off our spoons. After we were done using…
