I picked up some good advice in an unexpected place the other evening.
“Make a plan for what you are going to do before it happens,” was the advice from my friend, Roy The Umpire.
Roy is a very wise man who shares the same middle name as several significant historical figures. I can only assume that he has a family connection to Alexander The Great, Attila The Hun and Dog The Bounty Hunter.

Earlier this month, some members of my family claimed that the dog peed on the floor.
During a recent historic summit/nap, I sat down with Scooter the dog and discussed this issue, along with other amazing and incredible topics that I can’t talk about. Here are some of the results of our discussion: Continue reading “I have no reason to believe that the dog would have peed on the floor” →
The pets at my house are often annoyed with me.
We have a small dog and a small cat in our family, and they bring us incredible amounts of joy and hair.
And while I know they love us and appreciate how we feed them, house them and assist them in different ways, I often notice how I seem to be annoying them. Here are a few examples: Continue reading “Pets provide me with unconditional love! (Except when they are annoyed with me)” →
While cleaning the house today, we received quite a bit of assistance from the dog and cat.
Whether they were confused about why we were home during the day or they were concerned that the cleaning was not up to their high standards, they were an ever-present presence presiding over the work.

My dog Scooter and cat Glenn always seem to be watching me. I can’t fault them for thinking that I am fascinating, but I have often wondered what they were thinking.
Today, though, through innovative technology that gives us the ability to make things up, I have compiled the Top Five Things That My Dog and Cat Think While Staring at Me. Continue reading “Top Five Things My Dog and Cat Think While Staring at Me” →
As a guy in his mid-40s (I know, I know, I look like I am in my 20s…) I often think that I am a strong, competent adult who is in control of his life.
And then I come home and clean up dog poop, scoop up cat litter, constantly open and close doors for pets and clean bird poop off of the television.
I love our family pets dearly, (on most days) and I get more out of the relationship than I put in, but they can be taxing. Speaking of getting out more than I put in for them, how do they make so much poop and how do the cats fill the litter boxes so full? I don’t think I feed them that much.
