My Dogs

This fine gentleman is Aubie. Heinz 57, lab mix. Born in 2002, don’t know when for sure, he was found by a military couple when he was about 8 weeks old—along with his sister and brother. We adopted him from the paper.

* Edit: Aubie lived a long, healthy life, and he was so very, very loved. We said goodbye to him on September 1st, 2016. He passed away in his sleep from natural causes. He was 14 years old, and we miss him every single day.


This lovely lady (the dog, not me) is Aura Belle. She’s a gorgeous German Shepard. Lucky me, Matthew was her human, so I was adopted by her when I married him. And yes, she adopted me, not the other way around. She’s sweet and though she’s getting up there in years as well (as of 2017, this picture is six years old), she’s a source of calming energy to have around the house. She misses Aubie, and isn’t thrilled about the kids. I’ll say this though … she’s recently discovered that my youngest, Julian, is a walking buffet and that shows promise. So maybe an old dog can learn new tricks.

  1. I do not like the cone of shame.

    P.S. When are we going to take the bandages off of my tail? I look utterly ridiculous wagging a baseball bat.

  2. Them dogs are cute. mine is my baby. Boxer/pit mix .1 yr. old next month 8/15. Dawggie Birthday Parttttyyyyyyyyyyy. Bullwinkle iz his name. Stay Away dog fightas. NOT gettin MINE. He’s raised with LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He even can get along with cats. Imagine that.!!!

  3. They should have obedience instruction as soon as possible. And many of all, they don’t turn into calm until they’ve totally outgrown the puppy stage. It’s most suitable that you take note of these details if you want to have this kind of dog for a pet.

  4. okay, that’s a bit weird. Great dogs, but I mean I have two dogs as well and the top one sort of looks like my Shiloh and the bottom one sort of looks like my Molly. That’s what I meant by weird. By the way, if you’re wondering who I am, I’m a facebook friend/reader of Doug Brown and also a writer. I like the cover art and the info for your Thief of Nightshade book, which I plan on buying when it comes out, so that’s why I’m checking out your site.
