A Tortoise For Chou Chou Briard?


Yesterday I got a text from Mary; her law partner found "a turtle" in their parking lot. Would I know what to do with it? I drove right over. 

It was a small tortoise. His shell was dark brown... until I washed off all the dirt! He must have been hibernating underground, dug himself out, and wandered off on an unseasonally warm day. The parking lot was not a good place for wandering!

Brave Briards in War



                                                                                                                         

The briard has been the official dog of the French army. They served valiantly in World War I and World War II.


These old photos tell the story of the brave briards in war.

Chou Chou Goes to the Palace


I have a talented friend, a professional photographer with a special interest in pets. Some of Debbie's photos are posted  throughout this blog. 

A few days ago, we went to the Palace of Fine Arts, in San Francisco, for Chou Chou's photo shoot. What a beautiful location on a beautiful day!  Deb's husband, also a photographer, took this wonderful picture.

Chou Chou's Message: Microchip & Register!

("Here I am, out with my dog walker, going to the park. I heel well! Until I don't!")

("Even a perfect puppy like me might chase a squirrel! What if my dog walker, or my pawrent, drops my leash? What if I get lost? It could happen!")

("I almost got loose from the car once, trying to dash out before my leash went on!")

Chou Chou And Her Little Feathered Friend

Chou Chou lives with a Moluccan cockatoo. ("We are going deaf! What a screamer!")

Brandy needs a lot of attention. If I don't provide it, will Chou Chou?

Watching the Big Game With Chou's BFF


Toffee came to visit, to watch the Puppy Bowl. It went much better than I had imagined. Two big dogs in a small space filled with antiques, but nothing was chewed, broken, or spilled.
