Ask Augustus – by Auggie

Good Day, you drunken gadabouts. I am often unfairly criticized for being too harsh. However, in the interests of ceasing your incessant e-prattle, I am now going to answer questions submitted by you – the confused and chunky canine hordes of America. I do this without anger and in the genuine hopes of helping my fellow canines. […]

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 […]

Chess King on the Hot Dog Boat – by Max

Hi there, Max here! I am just fine thank you! Don writes a lot about what a pain in the butt I am and he’s absolutely correct. If your dog isn’t a big pain in the butt then he’s not doing his job. Just think, if you woke up tomorrow and switched places with your […]

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 […]

Salutations, quislings. It is I, your Supreme Canine Commander in Chief – Augustus. I am ready to mesmerize you with my unique and compelling takes on Boothbay Harbor Dog Life.

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 […]
