More Love

More Love

It’s that time of year where we start anew and plan to be a different person or in another place in our life by years’ end. I know my new years’ resolutions have always been far too ambitious. So, this year, I have one goal, and that’s more love. If my focus is more love,… View more

Home Is Where The Dog Is

Home Is Where The Dog Is

I like to think that I’m organized, plan well, and can be nimble when things don’t go according to my projections. The latter, only on my best days. Yet, somehow, this time of year, I find myself in a constant state of hurriedness and just-push-through-the-exhaustion. Why do everyday errands somehow take eight times longer during… View more

What Matters Most

This time of year, I’m infatuated with cheesy holiday movies. Even when I can predict the ending in the first five minutes or the writing and acting are terrible, I love the underlying themes.

When there’s too much change, even the good kind, Gavin gets a stressy belly and becomes a full-on grass-munching moo-cow. I can usually prevent it by proactively playing his favorite games, running through fun training exercises, or pulling something from his arsenal of anxiety-reducing stuff (all approved or recommended by our trusted veterinarians.)  But, despite… View more

Presence and Peace

Presence and Peace

Up until last summer, Gavin and I both worked hard to keep him relaxed and happy on walks. He’s unbelievably sensitive and doesn’t handle ANY change well AT ALL—no matter how intricately I planned and managed his walk times. A helicopter flying overhead, a lawnmower starting, or a dog getting too close despite my asking (sometimes… View more
