One Picture is Worth a Thousand Heart Throbs

[BRINDLEKIN TALES – Book 2: Chapter 11]

Taco is on the left. Click here for a larger image.

No story, just a sweet photograph. What the hey: I’ve tossed in ten short videos for your further muttly pleasure.


Title: Not a Good Idea

These pups don’t really have any doggy toys to play with, so I try to come up with items that they like to chew on, and are safe. This one didn’t work out. But look how cute Wiley’s ears are! I sometimes call her “My little Yoda.” And check out those laser eyes: she’s got super-powers! Notice I inadvertently called Taco “Lucky,” because that’s his real name…which I changed in my work-in-progress, “Brindlekin Tales.” Wiley’s real name is “Flaco,” which is Spanish for “skinny,” and pronounced “flah-koh.”


Title: Some Harnesses are Just Good to Chew on

Twelve of these orange harnesses (with leashes) were left behind about a year ago, at some SPCA event here in San Francisco. This was back before Deek adopted Wiley, but already had Taco for seven months. The harnesses turned out to be a loose fit, and couldn’t be adjusted. But they also came with leashes that were very good… but have since been all used up. I still have these harnesses stashed away in a bag on my loft. So I thought today, maybe they’d like to use them for chew toys, and that is exactly what they did.


Title: When Lucky Doesn’t Wanna Eat

It’s rare when Lucky isn’t hungry, but when he really doesn’t want to eat, he lets you know in the clearest way possible! He’ll even knock over the dish, if I don’t take it away. This is totally unrelated to the two pups’ recent and simultaneous sudden loss of appetite that lasted for almost five days, but was finally resolved with a slight change in their diet. Please note I’ve been calling him “Taco” when he was owned by someone else…for book publishing purposes. Now, I’m dropping the pseudonym, since I’m his new guardian, as I am also for Flaco, whose fake name was Wiley.

Always a delight to watch them play and fight!

Check out Lucky’s teeth…they remind me of that cartoon doggy character Mr. Peabody’s teeth!

Are they calling it quits, or do they feel imposed upon by my camera? They certainly don’t mind pooping in front of the entire world.
