Buddy – by Don

We got Buddy when he was 9 years old. We said goodbye to Buddy on May 18th 2021 when he was 15-1/2 years old. We got him because of Facebook. It’s the only time I remember something good coming to us from Facebook. Our long-time friend Jen shared a post about Buddy needing a new […]

The Rancid Interview – by Don

Hello. This is Chad Rancid of “Who The Hell Cares?” Magazine. Today, I have a very special guest for you. The first ever interview of Don Kingsbury- reclusive hobo genius behind the unstoppable juggernaut, “Two Salty Dogs Pet Outfitters.” Mr. Kingsbury was VERY clear: “We ain’t That Salty Dog thing in Wiscassett. That’s a groomer. […]

Getting to Know Me Better- by Don

NO. It’s not a continuation of Max’s new novel “Day of the Dogs.” Sheesh. Settle down. So many people come in and ask me annoying questions that it makes me want to set my skin on fire. I need my skin to live, so I figured I would take all the most commonly-asked questions you […]

Hair of the 5 Dogs That Bit Me – by Don

Thanks to those of you who sent emails laughing at my broken ankle. Evidently, Max’s telling of of how I broke my ankle and my subsequent flounderings were quite a Biped laugh machine. Instead of actually trying hard to present you with a clear and compelling narrative, I’m just going to jot down five lukewarmly-endearing […]

Small Head Ted – by Don

Do you like reading? I like writing! Two years after losing My Beloved Coal, I insisted we get another dog. I was convinced Buddy was going to kick the bucket any minute and I couldn’t picture life without at least three dogs. That was 20 months ago. I’m convinced Buddy is the Rasputin of our […]

Pup Fiction – by Don

Listen, I’ve been on vacation and therefore very negligent. I don’t have a fully-developed blog for you this month. Luckily, I DO have a lot of random, humorous story fragments. Kind of like the Dead Sea Scrolls. So I’m going to try a Quentin Tarantino move here. I’m just going to string along these unrelated […]

Insane Pownal Coyote Posse – by Don

The blog is starting!!! The blog is starting!!!! Please be seated and turn your cellphone off. To be quite honest, I’m not sure how dogs evolved. They should be a dead branch on the evolutionary tree considering some of the things they eat – chicken bones, tacos, socks, couch stuffing, rotting things, socks, rat poison, […]

The Family Budster – by Don

I figured since I wrote pieces about getting Max, Auggie, and Coal that I was obligated to write one about getting Buddy. So let’s do this whether we want to or not. I’m going to use all of Buddy’s nicknames in casual reference in this blog. Sorry in advance. ——————————- We came to know The […]

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 […]

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 […]
