Training Jack

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

We have had Jack for over two years and training him was long overdue. Overall he is a good dog, but he definitely needs to go through some training to be a better listener and to make sure he knows where he stands in the pack. Read more

Meet Jack!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

We found a newly retired relative of Colby and decided we wanted to meet him. Little did we know we ended up bringing him home the same day! He is a week off the track and so we have to spend some extra time with him teaching him about windows, doors, reflections, stairs, etc. Read more

Back in November 2008, Amy, a friend, and I went up to meet our next dog. I had him all picked out. An excellent runner right off the track, and half brother to our late greyhound Triscuit. Read more

Farewell to My Tiny Salsa

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Fifteen years ago Amy and I saw the cutest kitten. She was super tiny (always was), cute, and was the troublemaker of the litter. When we choose her – the people who were fostering us asked us if we were really sure because she was always causing problems. Read more

Crossing Through Pennsylvania

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

On our recent trip east – we crossed completely through Pennsylvania twice and this was just west of Lockhaven, PA. We had to exit off of 80 for a gas/Mt. Dew break and as we were getting ready to turn right – we had to wait while the horse and buggy went by first. Needless to say, you just never know what you are going to see next. Read more

Farewell to My Helper

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 4 Comments

A few weeks after we moved out to Chicago from Penn State, I decided I wanted to get a kitten because my childhood kitten, no matter how many treats I gave him or how many hours I played with him, really jumped up in my lap or slept next to me by choice. One afternoon, Amy and I stopped off at the pet store and I picked out a super cute greyish kitten. I was very excited to get her out of the pet store and into our loving home. The pet store worker came and got her from the... Read More » Read more

Busy Yes, Blogging Yes!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

It is hard to believe how little I have been able to actually blog about over the last two months or so. I have been busy with a number of big site projects – some that were the most complicated I have ever worked on (techland.com to name one) – my proudest recent achievement. I have also been busy with a number of home projects including re-painting, and a complete bathroom re-model. Since I seem to have so much free time – I also decided I needed to get a dog trainer to come in and train our dog Colby... Read More » Read more

Random Fridays: The Raccoon Fight

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Last night, about 1-2am I woke up to alien like sounds. First there was some hissing, then some clicking, and then some noises that sounded like cicadas almost. I was very disoriented and had no idea what was going on. After waking A up to see what she thought it was, she told me it was a raccoon fight. The noises they make are so bizarre – I cannot even really duplicate them in any way. I do not know how many were out there but it sounded like there were some fighters and a posse. If this happens again... Read More » Read more

My Boy Colby

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Here is a picture of Colby from this morning while he was stretching. You can see how big he is – and how much longer he is compared to Triscuit. We are working on getting some weight on him so he will be a bit more filled out but overall he is a very happy boy. He has shown a little stubbornness with moving, going down stairs, etc – but he is great around Evan and is extremely laid back. Last weekend some of our friends came over with their two greyhounds and all of them had a good time... Read More » Read more
