Today We Said Good-bye to Karma the Dog…

Thirteen years and two months. Approximately. You see, we got (rescued) Karma when she was only eight months old.  That was thirteen years and two months ago.  She was around for the highs (getting married) and the lows (the loss of our house).  Throughout all of it, though, her love...

Hello Internet! How have you been?

Work. So… much… work. Thus, in the interest of full disclosure, that’s where I’ve been: working.  The Green Mustard team had an event last weekend which – more or less – kicked off the “season” for us.  Since then (and just prior) I have been working my ass off. Next...

The Further Adventures of #KarmaTheDog

I am still -14 Gym Hours (counting today) since I managed to squeeze in a workout over the past two days.  My blog, however, is current.  My health seems to have returned, so I can start catching up on exercise today. I hope. In other news: Karma has completed her acupuncture therapy....

Karma’s Not Dead – and Neither am I.

These have been a ROUGH couple of days.  You see, I don’t really get “sick”.  It’s not like I live the healthiest lifestyle in the world – I just happen to have a pretty solid immune system against “the common cold”.  Part of this ability comes (I think) from my...

Another #KarmaTheDog Health Update

Another day – another trip to the vet. It’s been a rough few months for Karma.  First the heart issues in September, and then the spinal issues last week. Karma’s still here, though, and (thankfully) she isn’t in any discernible pain.  She is, though, bordering on “junkie” level with the...

Hitting the Reset Button

I am writing this from the future. No, really.  I am. You see – this post is dated January 12th – but I’m really writing it on January 16th and backdating it.  It’ll post today (the 16th) and you’re reading it today, but it is (from a narrative point a...

How do you decide when another living being has had enough of life?

Karma the Dog has been an integral part of my family for roughly one third of my life.  Think about that… for 31% of my existence, there has always been Karma. She’s been there to greet me when I get home – whether it is a long trip out of...

“Nothing Gold Can Stay…” | Update Regarding Karma the Dog

Karma the Dog came into our lives in the summer of 2003.  Prior to our adopting her, she was a puppy that was purchased by a family that just didn’t know what to do with her.  Their solution?  Lock the puppy in a closet and yell at it. We don’t have...

#KarmaTheDog is still with us – but age is rearing it’s ugly head.

In October of 2002, a young female Snorkie was born and dubbed “Paris” by her new owners.  Those owners, though, didn’t jib with the charismatic puppy and (so we were told) they would lock her in a closet because “she wouldn’t listen”. In the summer of 2003, Shannon and I took custody...

YouTube Cleanup: 2008 Karma the Dog vs. A Speed Racer Remote Control Car

I love my dog. Karma became a part of our lives almost twelve years ago and she is a bundle of love and entertainment.  Anyone who follows me on Instagram will tell you that I am constantly sharing photos of her because – let’s face it – she’s really, really...

Thus ends the Worst Year Ever.

Growing up, my mom would regularly throw around the phrase “remember: someone always has it worse!”  She was right, you know, someone DOES always have it worse.  My mother, though, lived in a world of extremes when drawing her comparisons.  You know the old adage about “walking uphill both ways...

New Blog? Yup. New Blog.

Yesterday some of you may have noticed that the ol’ blog looks a bit different.  In setting up for 2014, I decided to take some time to upgrade my personal website to look a little more – I dunno – modern?  Advanced?  Bloggy? In any case, I wanted it to...
