You have found the home of “Dog Tales Blog.” I started writing as a way to relax. Blogging as it turns out is a good distraction for me and after working with a shirt and tie for 42 years, I need the chill!
We love dogs and strive to post an eclectic mix of tips, news articles, and anecdotes on raising and care for your dog. We hope you enjoy our stories and find new ways to share the love of your pet!
The website is named after our dog Jupiter, a Great Dane, who we rescued seven years ago but succumbed to cancer in May of 2019. A big loss for us as we had so much fun with Jupiter participating in obedience training and demonstrations.
We also feature stories of other dogs we’ve rescued over the years, including our new dog Artemis, an American Staffordshire Terrier.
Life Before Blog
Starting a career path in the vicinity of 1978, I worked as a Full Charge Bookkeeper (is that still a thing?), changed employers a few times and worked my way up to VP of Finance of an international chemical engineering company.
Yes, I was around when the tech-boom was getting started. No, Al Gore didn’t invent the Internet, although, while VP he did something that inadvertently destroyed my family’s business but you’ll have to find the related “Dog’s Tale” to learn more.
For the last 29 years, I was in Information Technology and it has taken its toll on me. The last 20 for the same company <whew>!
So, scroll on to discover interesting stories about my life and my life with dogs. From inspirational to anecdotal I hope you find some encouragement or maybe even a laugh or two.
A word from my sponsors
The economy might be booming now but every dollar still counts. After adopted and caring for many dogs and cats, my wife and I know that saving some coinage is imperative! We strive to find savings and generally do.
