It’s our first Wigglebutt Wednesday at Joanie Tales. Yay!
It seems appropriate that our first Wigglebutt Wednesday happens to fall on the day before Valentine’s Day and the day after the 2019 Westminster Dog Show.
[Sidenote: I’ll spare you how disappointed I am that a Wire Fox Terrier took Best in Show yet again, for the 15th time, when a bouviers des Flandres, a Havanese, and a longhaired Dachshund (breeds that have *never* won Best In Show at Westminster) were in the running.

Here’s a photo collage of some of the characters you’ll hear about in Joanie Tales. Merlin is our fawn-colored mutt with a black muzzle; Pinot is our yellow Lab who’s fox red with a liver-colored nose; Fred, not ours but DTS’s rescue, is small, white, and fluffy (but huge in heart!); Chessie is our chocolate Lab with golden brown eyes; and Tuc is our black Lab with chocolate brown eyes. The two old-fart humans on the middle right of the collage are me (in the white shirt) and DH (with a white goatee). At the collage’s bottom right corner you’ll find Tuc giving me sloppy Lab kisses. There ya go! Now you have faces with names — all the better to enjoy Joanie Tales with.

Until next time,
For some readers, this post will be old news. But since I’m re-entering the blogging world after a 12-year hiatus, I thought I’d begin Joanie Tales with a clean slate. That means I’m assuming that many readers will know next-to-nothing about me or my family or my crazy life or my crazy crew. Here’s your chance to get to know (or reacquaint yourself with, if that’s the case) the people and canines of my world and the acronyms I use as shorthand to reference them:
