And it makes Itzl and Xoco happy. I left Hector behind today because it was going to be a rough day at work. Fire drills, an excess of visitors, it was raining, and it was my turn to bring the ...

Even though tornadoes are moving all around Oklahoma, overhead, I see stars. I'd take a picture, but my little new camera can't handle star shots. We have wind. Lots of wind. Last night was a ...

Itzl had his very last post op visit last night. The surgeon is very pleased with his progress and doesn't think he needs surgery on his other knee. I thought I'd taken the camera with me, but I ...

Starting tomorrow, Itzl and I will be volunteering out at the OU Medieval Fair , something I've done for 35 years, and Itzl his whole life.

Here's a game: see if you can spot Itzl in the picture below. I told him he could run as far and fast as he wanted, and he took off. He really is in this picture, but you have to look really close.

Itzl, as my signal dog, accompanies me everywhere I go. I don't travel far, but I do travel a lot between Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, and (of course)

We are going to be filming a Kickstarter video Saturday for OctopodiCon, so Itzl gets some new hats to wear. One is all the rage - a teeny tiny top hat that he can wear at a jaunty angle. It is ...

It's raining today. Plus, it's dark since this is our "energy saving week" where the only lights in my office are the emergency night lights and the glow of my computer screen. I have a flashlight ...

Today's been a slow day. That's about to change as people prepare for the upcoming week when most folks will be taking their furlough days and they've just realized it's 2 hours before the end of ...

I went with a friend last night to a rather expensive restaurant. We'd had reservations for 3 weeks, and it was her treat to celebrate Itzl's recovery. And I love her dearly for many reasons, and ...

Which is probably "bored", but that happens when you're a signal dog. The same old sounds, over and over again. Today, it's wind noise. That's a common sound around here, as windy as Oklahoma is.

Itzl is doing very well, and to come back for his final check up in one month. He's a bit stiff when he first gets up, and he lifts his leg when he wants to go fast, but since Itzl listens to ...

Itzl gets another follow-up vet visit tonight. He's doing really well. Almost the only time he limps anymore is when he first gets up ad if he wants to go really fast. Preventing him from going ...
