Graduate and undergraduate students will be working with the dogs at the lab to learn more about canine psychology through various experiments, puzzles, and games, They hope to learn how dogs process information and whether they can learn from others the way humans do. Dogs accepted into the…

Dog Trail: Poetry, sheer poetry

People often email me things in the hopes I’ll share them: contests, stories, pictures, YouTube videos that tickled their fancy. Sometimes I share them, when I know it’s something you would enjoy.

I love to write poetry and I think you all know that. I even have a tag: “Bad Poetry.” My poems are bad, but lovingly crafted. I know this. But the other day I opened an email from a writer, a real live good one, and it was just beautiful and I think you all would really like it. It’s about a black labrador. Here’s a snippet:


On our hill there was a trail to the moon.
Our black dog found it, beat it into the ground with his paws.
It could be supposed that he hated moons,
that his ferocity was more than dutiful,
but we’ll never know.

Do yourself a favor and head on over to Literal Latte to read the whole piece. Then tell me if you loved it as much as I did! A + + + + + + +

Shared for no reason other than a love of a beautiful turn of phrase.

Mama Love

Mama Love

Sunday will be my very first Mother’s Day as a mama.  (Well, to a human anyway; I absolutely considered myself a mother to Bubby dog too.)  My mom and I are very close, and this has always been a special day because of that.  But there’s something even more magical about it now that I have Essley.  I don’t look at Mother’s Day as a holiday focused on buying gifts or materialistic spoiling (although I certainly wouldn’t complain if I was brought breakfast in bed, hint hint) as much as I view it as a day to celebrate the indescribably beautiful relationship between mothers and their children.  The bond that I have with Essley – and with my mom as well – is something that is unique to that type of relationship.  And I think that is worth celebration. 

Recently, I started a Motherhood board on Pinterest.  I’d come across so many really lovely images that document the mama/child bond, and I wanted a place to save them all.  In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you all.  Whether you are a mother (fur babies count too!), a child, or both, I hope that your Mother’s Day is full of the kind of love that these photographs exude.
