Our Happy Holiday


We hope everyone celebrating today had a joyous holiday with their two- and four-legged family members! We have taken off the day to enjoy time at home including an extra-long hike with the dogs and lots of fun photo taking around the tree. Irie and Tiki received bully sticks in their stockings this morning (and […]

Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Holiday!


On Wednesday, we’re stepping away from the computer to enjoy some family time, a long dog walk, and the joy of the holidays. We want to wish all of you a very happy holiday and to thank you for making this such a great year for us!! We’d love to see YOUR holiday photos; please […]

365: Our Coyote Visitors


This week Irie and Tiki have been VERY interested in scents on our usual trails. We’ve been seeing more and more coyote droppings, always in the very middle of the trail and present at almost every intersection of trails. We placed a game camera out to see if we might spot one of the coyotes–and […]

365: Our Enchanted Rock Day Trip #TexaswithDogs


We hope everyone is enjoying a great holiday season, and I wanted to apologize for my lack of 365 posts! Work has been incredibly busy the past few months between promotion of DogTipper’s Texas with Dogs book, writing (and then going through editing) our upcoming The Healthy Hound Cookbook (out in March), freelancing, Event Barkers […]

Watch for Us in the Rachael Ray Show Audience! #IamwithRR


As you know, John and I lead a very quiet life here in our very rural setting. Surrounded by a nature preserve, our humble life consists of time usually divided between work at the computers and dog walks on a dirt road. But last week we veered off our usual path and got to enjoy […]

365: Preparing Our Kitchen for Cookbook Work!


This weekend we’re rolling up our sleeves and getting to work on our next book, The Healthy Hound Cookbook! First, though, I had to get the kitchen in order. It was one of those one-thing-leads-to-another kind of projects that began, innocently enough as so many of these projects do, with just a simple cleaning of […]

365: DogTipper’s on the Move!


We’ve got a good problem to have: DogTipper has outgrown its hosting. We’ve got too much traffic for our account so we’re presently moving the site to a faster virtual private server. The move is underway now but, over the next couple of days, the switch will be thrown and all traffic will go to […]
