Finding a FURever Home

By |February 4th, 2016|

I received an urgent call from my second cousin Gracie A. Basset. A fellow named Kenny was in a rough spot and needed some help finding his forever home. That was all I needed to hear—I grabbed my notepad, a freshly sharpened pencil, slipped on my red converse, had my mom type “CreatureKind Rescue” into [...]

A Rasher of Insights from Francis Bacon

By |January 28th, 2016|

It happened suddenly. I was getting coffee in Echo Park — slurping up my whole milk puppicino with whip — and in walks Francis Bacon. Star struck, I fumbled nervously around my duffle for my notepad and pencil. This might be the greatest story of my career I thought, as I wiped off most of [...]

What About Reverend Bob?

By |January 14th, 2016|

I definitely believe in Dog but I don’t necessarily adhere to any one religious philosophy. That doesn’t stop the ginger from trying and, after I was (supposedly) rude to José the Gardener last week, she thought a good dose of #catholicguilt would set me straight. When she switched off my Sunday morning cartoons and slipped [...]

New Year, New You

By |December 30th, 2015|

@watsons_dogumentary On Monday I waddled back into The Droolitzer headquarters after nearly a week off. My boss had promised me he wouldn’t mention my birthday, which I’d shared with Jesus, so I wasn’t worried about Paula the Puli from HR belting out a belated “happy birthday to you” over gluten free milk bones [...]

A Darling Dino

By |December 2nd, 2015|

Sometimes a story happens when you least expect it. Like on Monday when I was in line at Whole Foods and a real live dinosaur came up behind me with a shopping cart full of bacon. Like a pro, I whipped out my notepad and borrowed a pencil from the guy behind the checkout. A [...]

There I was sitting in the Vancouver airport on the week before Thanksgiving. My flight to Quebec was delayed and watching Planes, Trains and Automobiles on Netflix wasn’t helping my anxiety. There was an interview waiting for me on the other side of Canada but it didn’t look like I was getting there anytime soon. [...]

She’s Your Cherry Pie

By |November 11th, 2015|

I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year. This came as a shock to me—totally unexpected—but it’s my favorite holiday and I can handle it. My mom mistakenly decided to volunteer my house without checking her yoga schedule first. Then she discovered, a little too late, that she’s teaching Thanksgiving morning. Determined to turn crisis into opportunity, I [...]

Rescue! Rescue! Read All About It!

By |November 3rd, 2015|

@maverick_poser I’d been keeping a low profile in the office until HOWLoween was finally over. The boss was asking me to cover all the costumes gone wrong, but eventually I put my paw down and explained that I was having a severe allergic reaction to the holiday—probably, I added, in connection to the [...]

A Texas Bromance

By |September 29th, 2015|

It had been one of those weeks. You know the kind—all business—no time to nap after breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was sleep deprived and my garden hadn’t been tended to in days. I almost thought about calling Jose the Gardener to touch up the roses. Thankfully, even in my stupor I realized that that [...]

Daisy Dukes, Walmart and NYFW

By |September 23rd, 2015|

First and foremost, I’m a gardener. Groundskeeping is my passion and it just comes naturally to me. Yeah, I do what I can for the blogosphere and enjoy my status as an up-and-coming “foodie” but, truth is, nothing compares to the sun on my fur and dirt in my paws. So it was as much [...]
