Our friend Minga

Our neighbor-friend Minga is going through some difficult times and we're thinking about her.... After this summer's bout with Bailey and his neck injury, I experienced the deep emotional connection between pets and owners. We're thinking of Minga's brother Bapu and her moms, Kate and Gayle. Here's to good medicine!

Climbing with the family

Bailey's getting better and better off leash as we climb mountains. i keep him on leash for the first 30-45 minutes, and once he has tired out, I let him off. So far, so good. Oh... though today, he rolled in some kind of poop.

Rain Walking with His Brother Simon

We've been spanked by wet weather the past few days/week. Yesterday, horrific thunderstorms tore through out town and took down a number of trees. Between Irene, the down-graded hurricane, and the thunderstorms, we've been hammered by the weather.

New Book... More Sleeping

Bailey has once again taken up his editorial position under my office chair as I write a companion book for my forthcoming book Writing on the Bus: Using Athletic Team Notebooks and Journals to Advance Learning and Performance in Sports.

I've neglected this blog for another: Bailey's Brothers. I have to say that Bailey loves his new brothers. He loves playing with them in the house and waking them up in the morning time. They enjoy him as well. I feel pretty lucky to have these three "sons."

There's something unique about a boy and his dog... and in our case, a dog and his boys.
