Executive Orders

After celebrating my 31st birthday all weekend, it seems my break from the daily grind has been extended.

Secretary of Defense Charlie Machete and Vice President of Waywardness Luke Jones delivered the message for their boss.

The Wayward Dogs hope you have a relaxing President’s Day!

The Wayward World is full of excitement these days!

Although I can’t yet tell you about all of it, I look forward to doing so. In the meantime, the mood is extra busy, busy, busy!

But even amidst all the hubbub, some members of the Wayward House still find time for this:

How does he fit in there?


Adequate rest is one of Scooby’s house rules, especially when he’s wearing a monster jacket.

Come back tomorrow for a review of another dog jacket – Luke and Charlie Machete’s thunder jacket for dogs by Thundershirt.

In the meantime, I hope you are all as well-rested as my dogs!

What are you up to this weekend?

Laughs for Breakfast

Didz u say treatz?

Last night, I followed a friend’s link to a bunch of funny animal photos and I laughed so hard I cried.

I’m gonna give you the chance to giggle, too. But first, here are some other links.

  1. If you haven’t already entered the Baltimore Bumble Crafts shampoo bar giveaway, do it now! This is the last day to enter. By participating and sharing the giveaway details with friends you not only stand to win a cool product but will also help grow awareness about this blog and Baltimore Bumble Crafts, a small, woman-owned business.

  2. Make sure you have the date saved for Oct. 28 shopping party and raffle fundraiser for Midwest Adopt-a-Bull. If you are in the Kansas City area and want to buy raffle tickets in advance, contact me. You can also RSVP on Facebook. More details coming about that event next week, including how you can be part of it even if you live far away.

OK, now for the funny stuff:


Number 21 is not the funniest, but it does show a no-nonsense golden retriever haircut I wish Luke had.

Happy Friday, everyone! What’s in store for you and your pups this weekend?

Happy birthday to a dear friend

Did you go somewhere special over the weekend?

Did you celebrate an accomplishment, milestone or the mere existence of your loved ones?

That’s what my weekend was all about – eating, drinking, laughing, loving and generally basking in the presence of one of my favorite people in the world.

My best friend Kenton turns 27 today.

The flight attendant ordered an “Aviation” drink at his birthday dinner.

That fact is hard to believe, considering I met him nearly two decades ago, on the set of a children’s theater production in Beatrice, Nebraska. Over the years, we’ve been through so much – as geeky kids, as wayward adolescents, as roommates and now, as long-distance friends.

Scratch that friend part. Kenton is family – not by blood but by choice.

Happy birthday, brother! I love you, and so do all of your dog nephews.

In fact, Scooby has a special message for you on this big day:


Who’s part of your chosen family?

Come back tomorrow to learn about Remedy, the local restaurant I insisted on as the setting for Kenton’s birthday dinner.
