“Diva Doxie” Penny … Goes Triking on Her Terms

Penny is one confused “Doxie”!  Do I Like Triking or Not? Woof … Most days morning or evening, Mom and Dad get ready to go on those 3 wheel things, I think they call it recumbent trikes. Every time I hear the door open to the garage, I quickly crawl out from under my blanket and out of my cozy and warm bed rushing to the door. I sniff my way to those funny looking trikes and sniff all the way to…

Triking Tidbits from Louis

A Good Day

What’s a “good” day for you? Is it working hard and accomplishing goals? Is it trying to get a little white ball in a hole in the ground in the least amount of strokes? Is it physically striving hard to reach some goal like the top of a bare rock face or a campsite really far in the wilderness? Is it hanging out with some really interesting people outside?

A Penny Thought

Penny Goes Triking

About five years ago our youngest daughter left for college in Texas. I thought I was going to go nuts over what they call the “empty nest” syndrome. This drove our daughters crazy too. Their solution to the problem was an adorable dachshund “Wienie dog” puppy. Kelly found her in Lubbock, Texas. I named her Penny and she is a piece of work – spoiled rotten to the core. She did make a huge difference in Louis and my life. Louis…
