The Calculus of Joy

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetMake no mistake, dogs know calculus. My own dog can work out all the math involved to determine exactly when and where a projectile will be at an exact point in time, and then be there to meet it. She obviously isn’t doing math, but she is working things out using her emotional intelligence, and she is rarely wrong. I don’t know how she does it, but what I do know though is that she definitely has the formula for joy worked out.



Watching1The life of a Sighthound. Always alert and always aware, nothing ever goes unnoticed. She is the master of observation and the first one to jump to action. Combine her sight with her speed, and she is always first….in everything. 799A0244 fade small

Our One Ear Cat


This is the newest addition to our family. He showed up at our door and just never left. He’s shown amazing patience with Roxy, which went a long way to convincing us to take him in. He’s a handsome guy, don’t you think?

Lift OffAnother beautiful fall day here in Greensboro, and the J dog is feeling kind of sprite. We don’t play frisbee much anymore, but when you’ve got a dog that can jump and catch the way she can, it’s a shame to not exercise those abilities every now and then.IMG_6711 SmallIMG_6713 Small IMG_6748 Small IMG_6750 Small IMG_6753 Small IMG_6786 Small


HomeAfter over 2 years apart, Amanda and I are finally back together. Our family has shrunk considerably during that time, having lost our cats Willy and Mao, and then Delta just a few months ago. It’s just the 4 of us now, Jackie, Roxy, Amanda and me. Though we have moved across the country to a new place and a new life, it has never felt as much like home as it does now. Welcome home.

You Are Missed

Missing DeltaIt’s been 3 months since we said goodbye to Delta. Some days I really feel the hole that her loss has left, and today is one of those days. I miss you girl.
