Their Only Fault, Really…

“Dogs lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” ~ Agnes Sligh Turnbull ~ It’s turning out that grooming day, or spa day, as we like to high handily call it in the Burch house, it becoming eventful. Eventful in ways I would rather avoid. As coincidence would have it, the last two times “spa… Continue reading Their Only Fault, Really…

Out Damn’d Spot!

“Out, damn’d spot! Out, I say!”  ~ Lady Macbeth, Act 5, Shakespeare ~ Look at this face! Could there be many things more adorable than this?! Innocence and sweetness oozing from those little dark windows into her soul. Well, let me tell you something, to paraphrase Bette Davis, “Fasten your seatbelt, it’s going to be… Continue reading Out Damn’d Spot!

Angry Birds, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A couple of weeks ago I walked out onto my nice big front porch, looked around and thought, “Good grief, who or what has turned my porch into a poop deck?!” There was bird poopy on handrails and in a certain corner of the floor. I happened to gaze upward and immediately got an answer… Continue reading Angry Birds, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Chocolate, Godiva and Crack for Dogs, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Chocolate, Godiva and Crack for Dogs, By Beverly Hicks Burch I have a confession. I am not a chocoholic. I’m not a big sweet eater. If I do eat something sweet, I prefer something fruity, or a cup of yogurt. I am more of a crunchy, salty, savory type of gal. Give me hot popcorn… Continue reading Chocolate, Godiva and Crack for Dogs, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Encounters…a Little Further South, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Encounters…a Little Further South By Beverly Hicks Burch For any new readers, let me refresh the scene a bit. Last year I had a spat of “encounters” with critters…beasties if you will. There was Mr. Chicken Hung Phooey…or as we fondly called him “Dead Chicken Walking”. He had a companion and together they brought us… Continue reading Encounters…a Little Further South, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Bee Sweet, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Bee Sweet By Beverly Hicks Burch There is a great mystery going on right under our noses…one worthy of Agatha Christie and the Great Sleuth himself…Sherlock Holmes. Unfortunately, this mystery is real and not fiction. The world’s honeybees are vanishing and it is stumping the scientists around the globe. The situation is so serious that… Continue reading Bee Sweet, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Strange Bedfellows, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Strange Bedfellows By Beverly Hicks Burch There is one thing to say about being confined to a two story house with a bazillion packed moving boxes while you feel like your body is slowly but surely destructing one cell at a time…you have plenty of time to observe a thing or two. Take for instance… Continue reading Strange Bedfellows, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Encounters, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Encounters By Beverly Hicks Burch I am a suburbanite. I am a child of the burbs. So, what the heck is it with me and critters lately?! Mind you, I’m not talking about your run of the mill, mediocre, pedestrian house pets. Oh, no… Don’t get me wrong. I dig animals…most of them at least.… Continue reading Encounters, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Safari Time, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Safari Time By Beverly Hicks Burch Grab your khakis and let’s go on a safari. Don’t worry…no animals will be hurt in the process…except maybe the two that are fighting at the foot of my bed…and that darn rooster next door that was crowing way too early this morning...(which begs the question once again, who… Continue reading Safari Time, by Beverly Hicks Burch
