People think I’m kidding with my nicknames for her: Tessinator, Loch Tess Monster, Tessmanian Devil, etc. As you can see, however, when it comes to toy deconstruction, Tess plays second fiddle to no dog. A dollar ninety-seven at Wal-Mart down the drain. And does she look shamed? On the contrary; she’s damn proud.

Sheltie and destroyed toy

OH. MY. Ken

Max the Sheltie suffers from anxiety. It was recommended we get another dog (Indy) to try to help Max. Max didn’t like Indy when we first brought him home, but not long thereafter they became inseparable. Max has made some great strides over the years. Here they are geocaching together.


Everyone needs a BFF, John. :)
