Our Progress Towards Our New Year’s Goals

A couple of weeks ago (although it feels longer…) I wrote about our goals for the New Year. I didn’t expect to be writing about them again so soon, but since I’ve started working on them, I thought it be interesting to let you know how things are going now …

Some Tips That May Make Your Life (and Your Dog’s) Easier

I owe the idea for today’s blog post to Manel. I wasn’t feeling inspired, and he kindly suggested that I could write about tips that have made our lives easier when it comes to Nix. Of course, they may not apply to you, but you never know when they may …

Our New Year’s Resolutions

Hello everyone! Long time, no write ;)! How have you been? In the end, I decided to take a couple of weeks off after Christmas. In general, I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions, but certain events and our current situation has made me think that it might be …

A Brief Life Update

Well, first of all, Happy Christmas Eve! You may have noticed that I missed last week’s post, and today’s post will be more of a ramble than anything else. Last week we had a friend staying over,  and I didn’t have time to write a post. I’m been running so …

It’s Monday, 6:02 pm. In two hours, a new post (this one) should be up in the website. Having run out of ideas (except for the Leishmaniasis article I’ve prepared that is so long that I never find the time to keep writing and polishing it), I asked Manel a …

How Nix Lost a Tiny Bit of Her Ear

The Sunday of the same weekend that we visited Montserrat was supposed to be a relaxing day for us all. As usual, Manel took Nix out for a walk and frisbee fetching first thing in the morning. As I think I’ve mentioned earlier in the website, Nix can be possessive …

Dog Stories (I): Desi (1992-2001)

I’m a German Shepherd lover and fan. If you’ve read the “About” page, you’ll know that all the dogs I’ve had have been German Shepherds or German Shepherd crossbreeds. I thought that it’d be interesting to write one post for each of the dogs that have been an important part …

Dealing with a Broken Ankle and a Dog

If you’ve read the previous post, you’ll probably remember that at the end of February I had the misfortune of breaking my ankle as I was going down some stairs. Unfortunately, despite the stairs having no more than 3 steps, I had a bad fall and a pretty awful break. …
