Black and Tan and Tuxedo

Black and Tan Chihuahua

We’re headed to St. Louis today. That’s about the halfway point to where we’re going in Minnesota. I’m hoping our pets don’t give our house-sitters too much trouble while we’re gone. Something tells me everything will be just fine though. ūüėČ PS- Know any must-stop-for flea markets between southern Alabama and St. Louis? Sure would […]

Pretty On My Porch


Thanks to a cold-that-won’t-quit, I’m still kickin’ it on the couch. It has been sort of fun just (new) neighborhood watching out the window though. Yesterday, this pretty little bird kept me entertained, just as the sun was starting to set… It sat there for soooo long.¬†I started to wonder if it was going to […]

Puppy Love


We’re surrounded by some really sweet neighbors here in the new ‘hood. Looks like Max has already found his favorite. Note: I feel like I should probably mention that Abbie belongs to our next door neighbors, Scott and Tammy. We asked for their permission before we brought her inside (via text message), and Max was […]

Instagram Anstagram’s


We joined Instagram a few months back and we’ve really had fun using it. Neither of our Mom’s are on Twitter though, so I thought I’d blog about some of our favorite “an-stagrams” (animal Instagrams) for them here today.¬†You know- so they could keep up with their grandpets. (Hi, Moms! Instagram is a free photo-sharing […]

iPhone Pics & Pinterest Prose


iPhone pics + a quote that struck a chord = I used to think I was the strangest person¬†pet in the world. But then, I thought, there are so many people¬†pets in the world… …there must be one just like me. …who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine […]

Neutering and leg pin removal surgery for Kit-Cat: $360. Bladder stone surgery for Maximus: $1370. Seeing them recovering together in a sun spot on our bed: Priceless.  

Ruff and Tumble


Most of the time, Max and Kit-Cat just lounge around the house… But lately, they’ve started to meet up for body slamming sessions between naps… (click the play button to watch the completely quiet/action-packed video below) I guess this means Max is over the whole, “who is this weird little dude and why is he […]



Hi. I’m Maximus Palmer, and my Mom thought it would be nice if I blogged about my new little brother, Kit-Cat, today. Yep. Apparently the kid is stickin’ around for good. I’m not really sure why they wanted me to announce the news though, because…well…the dude sort of weirds me out. I mean, he’s craaaaazy […]



Our friend, Jason, brought over his new “baby” the other day and I couldn’t resist snapping some pics of her when she started to get sleepy. Meet Tootsie… She’s a “dorkie” (dachshund/yorkie) and our pooch, Max, is officially in love. The mere mention of her name has him racing to front door at an incredible […]
