Ashok’s Adventure: A Scary Hotel

Hi, everybody. I’ve got a lot of free time on my hands right now, so I thought I’d write on Momma’s blog. She’s making me wear this stupid inner tube around my neck. I think I’m being punished for something, but I can’t figure out what I did. It all started last week. I got […]

Learning From My Little Sweet Potato Fanatic

As soon as I woke up this morning, Ashok ran over to the bed for her morning hug and belly scratch. It doesn’t matter what time of the day or night I wake up, she’s totally excited that I’m stirring. And…. she thinks it’s time to get up and have her morning meal and walk. […]

Chaotic Loveable Animals

The Things That Bella Has Taught Me

After a Memorial Day Weekend trip to Louisiana in 2009, I decided to stop in Mississippi at the Southhaven City Animal Shelter to see if they had any dogs that might interest me. I had been considering getting a dog for awhile and had been researching the topic, but I hadn’t gone to see any. […]

My Girl Ashok

Ashok means “without sadness” in Sanskrit, the language of yoga. I wanted a dog for companionship. Now, I’m a cat person. I have always been and always will be. I just love snuggling up with a cat purring in my ear. But, I couldn’t take my cats camping. They definitely wouldn’t go kayaking. And, I […]
