Abandoned – by Big Buddy

Hi there, I’m Big Buddy. This month is my turn to write the blog. I hope I don’t let you all down! I got very scared in November because I was abandoned by Don and Liana. I get left alone a lot but this time I was abandoned at the cabin. It was very, very […]

Let Loose the Dogs of War – by Don

You might get the impression that Max and I still battle like we did when he was a puppy. We do. The battles are different now that we’re both old and lazy. In the past, something as simple as getting Max in the car resembled a Nazi-Soviet slugfest with vast encirclements, unspeakable civilian atrocities, and unrelenting […]

Bad Days to Be a Black Hot Dog – by Max

See that video up there? That’s when I’m happy – when there’s tons of snow, the temperature is reasonably below zero, there are hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails to walk, and we are surrounded by lots of snowy hillsides for me to slide down on my belly and butt. Sure, in the summer there […]

Two Poops Galoot – by Buddy

Hi everyone! It’s me, Big Smart Buddy. I didn’t win the Musical Chairs at the Mutt Scrub this year, but thanks for asking. I am almost 13, and Auggie is right. I am an old dog and all I want to do is sit or lie down. It’s out of the fast lane and into […]

The Mongrel Scour 2018 – by Auggie

Salutations, Lackeys. Your rewards are forthcoming and wondrous. Every year the Bipeds “do” this thing called the Mutt Scrub. The cutesy name is designed to elicit heartwarming images of faithful canines being lovingly washed by ever-adoring owners. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Mutt Scrub (Or as I call it, “The Mongel Scour”) […]

Love Letters to the Edge – by Don

Have you ever been from away and wanted to correct the Boothbay Region’s primitive ways or vindicate grievances you have suffered at the hands of the region’s ignorant peasantry? It can be incredibly hard to drill your point into the thick local skulls when you have suffered so much. You also need to get the […]

The Peculiar Rules of People – by Max

Max here. I am just fine, thank you! Lots of people don’t know that my full name is “Maximus Gary Kingsbury.” In Latin, that means “The Greatest Gary Kingsbury” and I suppose that I am. When I Googled Gary Kingsbury, all I got was a bunch of pictures of Karen Kingsbury the romance novelist. I […]

Buddy On The Move – by Big Buddy

Big Smart Buddy here! Thanks for liking my blog! Don says I’m doing a great job. He even calls me an internet star because of that photo of me in the snowy driveway. Thanks to everyone who liked the photo of me asleep in the snowy driveway. I can’t tell you how to be an […]

Separation Angst – by Auggie

(Editors Note: Auggie must use the word “Rutabaga” in this blog or forfeit a snack). ————————————– I am Augustus and every fibre of my canine being loathes you for the hairless ape you are. It’s not your fault. But you should try harder in future. Like spelling fiber, fibre. Make a note of it, and […]
