April Sky

April 9, 2013


warm day, blue sky Central Park, pup & I people-watching


February 13, 2013


I was walking Dolce this evening when he saw this dog he simply had to sniff. I struck up a conversation with the lady walking that dog and she asked if I live in the same building. “Yes, I do,” I replied. I was glad to find that our dogs were getting along so well […]

T.O. to NYC: Leg Two

January 25, 2013


It hasn’t sunk in yet. If you’ve kept up with my recent writing (and you have, haven’t you?) then you know that the second leg of the move involves being in New Jersey, at my parents’ home, for a week, before my lease begins. That’s where I am right now. I got in last night […]

T.O. to NYC: Logistics

January 18, 2013


I read somewhere recently that moving is the third most stressful event in a person’s life, after death and divorce. I feel like I can finally allow myself to calm down and take a nice deep breath. Except I’m finding it tough to be calm and I think it might be because what I was […]

Sweet Rewards

March 12, 2012


I told Caryn of Whatta Pup that I’d sing her praises if I could. I cannot imagine Dolce thriving the way he is if it wasn’t for her, the training techniques she teaches me, and her infinite patience. And because of her amazingness (we’ll just have to coin that word to describe her) we made […]

Softly Tread

March 7, 2012


“Besides love and sympathy, animals exhibit other qualities connected with the social instincts which in us would be called moral.” ― Charles Darwin A soft mouth is what they call it. When Dolce would bite down a little too hard on my hand, I would let out a yelp and stop playing for a few […]

Dolce Meets Mr. Cat

March 5, 2012


Dolce interacted with a cat for the first time today. The cat was black and bigger than him and took an instant liking to his bag, the Sleepypod Atom. Dolce sniffed the cat’s bum and decided it wasn’t interesting enough. So he proceeded to look for treats in the pet shop we were in. We […]
