Moosedawg on Stilts and a Crack Puppy Rabbit

In May, I thought Buddy the Moosedawg, at 12, was about to kark it. Mentally and physically he was losing it. But this week he’s running on testosterone like a teenager.

Simple dogs – and why we love ’em

We have two dogs – well, one almost-a-dog (Cassie the Shih Tzu) and one moosedawg (Buddy the 100-pound, half German Shepherd, half moose, bark-o-holic). Both are 77.
