A Truce with my Aging Stepdog

There’s one good thing about my old dog’s fading memory: he seems to have forgotten he hates me.

Our dog, Eddie, is 15 years old and generally in good health, but he’s showing his age. His hearing is about gone, and he can no longer jump on sofas or navigate long flights of stairs. And he’s [...]

It’s Not Just Eddie and Me

In a Psychology Today article, New York psychologist Guy Winch notes that pets are a frequent source of arguments among couples.

Who should walk the dog?

Who should clean up after the cat?

Feeding mice to your snake — seriously?

Dr. Winch even cites an Associated Press poll that found that 14 percent of respondents would choose their pet [...]

Everyone Is A Critic

CAT: “I just read “Stepdog” and I’m with the stepmom. Dogs are such trouble.”

Summer Doldrums

MN: “It’s finally warm out, Eddie. Let’s take a walk.”

SD: “You go ahead. I’m waiting for winter.”
