Trees!! We got trees!

After months of planning, saving and finagling, Nursery Trees LLC broke ground and installed a row of excelsa cedar specimens in front of our side fence. The property originally had 25 trees, of which only one was left standing. I'm not sure why the county didn't ask for more to be preserved or installed as... Continue Reading →

Zach, The Insomniac

A few months into getting Zach, in early 2016, a neighbor's constant slamming of his car door at 4-5 am riled up his protective security dog instincts. Now, almost 2 years later, he still wakes up and barks whenever a similar noise or event occurs. There are two or three weeks were the outbursts subside... Continue Reading →

The amount of love these two have for each other is unbelievable especially since they were total strangers two years and a month ago.... Continue Reading →

He moved in on December 12, 2015 and managed to put up with a small yard, us, a big move, and currently our MBA schedule. We worked through his many reactions and health/behavior issues as newbie...

The Sliding Door v Zach

When people say "he/she has the persistence of a pitbull" they weren't kidding! Our pit-lab mix Zach loves to assert his dominance over certain areas of his realm (aka our new house) and he will not budge until he gets his way. Stubborn. Will cry, whine and bark until you fulfill certain requests. His crown... Continue Reading →
