Crawling out of the Cave

It has been way too long since the last update, post, etc.  A lot of things have been going on recently that have draw my attentions elsewhere.  I apologize for that.  I know a number of people have found their way to this blog because of all the FHO posts and you are...
2014!

2014!

We are back in frigid cold of Chicago.  The drive up wasn’t so bad, but man oh man was it a shock to go from 80 degrees to -20 with the wind chills.  The first few days we were back the dogs didn’t want to be outside for long.  Bacio would shiver and just...
FHO recovery at the beach!

FHO recovery at the beach!

We’ve been in Florida for almost 2 weeks now.  Once we got over the long drive we were out and about.  Fort Myers beach is very dog friendly, as long as your dog is on a leash and you pick up after it, they can be anywhere on the beach.  We’ve been going...

A road trip with dogs.

Friday morning I woke up and finished some last minute packing of the car, loaded the pups and headed back to my apartment to drop my rent check off for December and to pick up our co-pilot for the drive.  We made a quick stop at Loyola Park while we were waiting for...

FHO Recovery Round 2, 2 weeks

Wow. I don’t know if my little bear understands this time that this surgery is good for him or what, but this recovery has been leaps and bounds better.  So far at least, I’m hoping it stays this way. A short clip of Bacio walking 5 days post surgery...

Back in Action

Well well well… I’m Back… Sorry I didn’t tell you I was leaving… thats just how I roll I guess.  My birthday is at the end of July, and I got swamped between work, seeing family, going out of town, developing new business ventures, having...

‘ello luf. Summer is here in full force.  Finally got the AC window units in and running, the dogs are much happier.  Yuki was surprisingly more tolerant of the heat than Bacio.  Maybe because she can comfortably lay on her back, legs spread, showing off her...
