Hi! Scooter here. I know you've missed me and I have important news. So last week Mom and Dad went to see Maizie in Ann Arbor. She is my niece dog. (I am Uncle Scooter.) I had to stay home. Anyway, I'm not sure when or how I did this, but I flipped or scrunched, … Continue reading Scooter’s Close Call & The Turkey That Got Away

What a dog!
Madison T. Dog July 14, 2001-February 22, 2011 I lost my shadow this morning. Last spring Madison developed a bump under his left eye, all of a sudden. I thought I had konked him on the head accidentally with the shower nozzle. It persisted. Tests early in the fall indicated cancer. He wasn't in any pain. … Continue reading What a dog!
Hair of the Dog
Greetings from Madison T. Dog, canine correspondent for Mommy's blog, Through The Eyes of a Quilter. Today we'll be looking through the eyes of a Golden Retriever. My eyes are just a little closer to the ground and I don't play with needles. I am a Golden Retriever. My fur is gold colored and Mommy retrieves … Continue reading Hair of the Dog
Back To School
I go to Daddy's school every year to talk about being a service dog. Actually, Mom does most of the talking. We go with Aunt JoAnne who brings her Leader Dog puppies. I'm retired now, but I still know my stuff. This year Aunt JoAnne brought Maggie May. She was "career changed" because of her … Continue reading Back To School
Although I am a dog I know things. Like when it is time to eat. Mom doesn't need a watch. At 7 in the morning time, or as soon as she's done yanking her head-fur with the electric heat machine, I know it's time for breakfast. Dinnertime is precisely at 5pm unless Mom decides to make me suffer and … Continue reading Treats!
Mom’s Leaving Me Again
Mom does this from time to time, and I don't like it at all. The worst part is that she looks so happy about it. Mom says she's going on a teaching trip. She says it will be fun. Not for me. She says she's going to be teaching for the Crossroads Quilters Guild in … Continue reading Mom’s Leaving Me Again
Fur Between My Toes….Grows!
Madison T. Dog here. Again. I thought I would write again because I am amazing and you probably want to read about me. I would like to tell you things. I have fur. This is a dog thing. Some of us are hairless, but I have lots of hair. After Mom brushes me she says … Continue reading Fur Between My Toes….Grows!
Dog Gets New Job, Economic Recovery Sure To Follow
Hello! Madison T. Dog here, blogging because Mom is hip deep in striped fabric from the previous blog. Thank you for your help, by the way, she was driving me nuts. I'm here with good news. I got a job. It's kind of a volunteer thing. I don't get a kibble increase. But I came up … Continue reading Dog Gets New Job, Economic Recovery Sure To Follow
The Seal of Approval
Mom was cleaning closets and I was helping. When she feels the urge to purge (and clean and straighten) she usually takes a nap and waits until the urge passes. But, for some reason she was MOTIVATED. Did I mention I was helping? Readers with very good eyes will notice that there is a bottle … Continue reading The Seal of Approval
Santa Dog Brings Tidings of Joy
Mom's busy. She is procrastinating. That's why you haven't heard from her. Mom said I could bring you holiday greetings, however. So, like the song about the merry gentlemen resting, I bring you tidings of "Come Fur and Enjoy!" (I've recently been brushed.) I love to wear my Santa suit. Mom made it for me. There was … Continue reading Santa Dog Brings Tidings of Joy
