A Dozen Reasons Having Dogs > Having Kids (For Me)

Occasionally people think that people with pets and without children are choosing pets over kids or that pets are a good precursor to kids. I don’t fit either scenario. Even if I wanted kids, I’d still have dogs. But even if I didn’t have dogs, I still wouldn’t want kids. Read more →

Apollo’s First Walk Out in Heidelberg

The week after our anniversary, my husband Tim and I decided to take our min pin Apollo on his first walk out in Heidelberg. (Previously he had only walked on post). We decided to park at the PX and walk along the Neckar. We stopped by some steps near the Read more →

Kölle-Zoo Pet Store in Heidelberg

Apollo gets over-excited on walks and pulls ahead. With a collar, he always sounds like he’s having trouble breathing but doesn’t slow down whether we try to give him more or less room to roam. I was worried he’d hurt himself, and he was wearing down the fur at his Read more →

Photo a Day: August 27th-31st

Once again I managed not to specifically take any pictures that went with the prompts for Photo a Day August, but I did take some pictures this week and last that happened to work out, one of which was even on the correct day. If you’re a fan of my Read more →

Photo a Day: August 22nd-26th

I took a few pictures this week but didn’t intentionally take pictures to the prompts for the Photo a Day Challenge. One fit for the the prompt from the day before it was taken, so I’ll post that. The others all come from other weeks or even months, but have Read more →

Photo a Day: August 8th-14th

The next seven prompts for the Photo a Day August challenge were glasses, messy, ring, purple, spoon, simple, and arrow. While I didn’t deliberately take any photos on the day of the prompt for the prompts, I did take some on different days with one of the prompts in mind, Read more →

Getting the Dogs Registered on Post and Getting Apollo Neutered

When we got the dogs’ international health certificates, we also had a tumor checked on Apollo and were told to have it taken off for testing if it didn’t go down on its own. By the time we’d been in Germany about ten days, it hadn’t changed. Apollo was also constantly Read more →

Photo a Day: July 15th-22nd

The next eight prompts for Photo a Day July were finger, sign, your addiction, plate, animal/insect/pet, eyes, 9 o’clock, and upside down. Although I did take pictures specifically for a few of the prompts, most of them were taken on the 21st rather than on their assigned days. 15. Finger Read more →

Photo a Day: July 8th-14th

The next seven prompts for Photo a Day July were lunch, big, your favorite colour, letter, texture, open, and building. I planned to take a picture for the first prompt, forgot, and then had to settle for taking one of dinner. The rest of the week, I didn’t remember to Read more →
