Farley here,

Do you ever feel like this?


Farley tired

Too much fun at the dog park. Swimming, barking, running. chasing balls…and look what happened to me.

A big long nap is such a wonderful thing.

Farley’s Fridays: Are Wheaten Terriers Ever Sad?

Farley here,

Sad eyes, that’s what I have. The question is why. I’m standing in a beautiful creek. I’m off-leash.  What could be making me sad?

Farley In Creek

Kristina is telling me it’s time to get out of the creek and head home. I don’t want to. I love it in here. My tummy is cool. My paws tingle in the running water.

I put on my “best” sad eyes. They get Kristina every time. She can’t stand it if she thinks I’m unhappy, so she gives me more time to play in the water.

But to answer the question: “Are Wheaten Terriers ever sad?” Not a chance. I’ve been gifted with eyes that can look sad, but inside I’m all giggles. I know I’ll get my way, especially with a human like mine.

Farley’s Friday: The Creeks Are Running, And So Are The Dogs

Farley here,

The snow melted, and it seems to have gone into the creeks.  The water level is almost at my tummy. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. It’s above my paws. But that’s deep enough for me.

I don’t like to go in water over my head so this is perfect.

Yesterday, I played hard with my pal, Flint.

And the reward…drinks in the creek. Cold water. Sticks to chase. What could be better?

Woof Woof.


Farley’s Friday: I Found My Human

Farley here,

I’m playing in the snow, sniffing for hidden treasure, when I smell her. I know she’s close. I lift my head, alert to any sounds.

Her scent is strong now, and I break into a run. I’m too excited to think. She’s been gone for so long, I can hardly believe she’s in the neighborhood again.

Now I see her, and burst toward her. I feel true happiness. My human is back. I have no idea where she’s been, and all I want now is a cuddle.

Farley Running

I drag her home and sit on her. I’m not letting her go. Kristina is my human.

Farley’s Friday: What’s A Cat Doing With My Human?

Farley here,

I’m still pining for Kristina. She says she’ll be home soon, but what does that mean?

I’m going to stare out this window until she gets here. Don’t get me wrong. The people taking care of me are really nice. They feed me, walk me, and let me sleep in their beds. It doesn’t get better than that. but I have a special connection with my human and I want her back.


To make things worse,  look what I caught her doing!


There is a cat on her lap. Really, that’s just too much.It’s bad enough I’m lonely. She better get home soon and explain this to me.

Woof Woof

Farley’s Friday: Where Oh Where is my human?

Farley here,

Does anyone know where Kristina went? Every morning I get up and check the house. I sniff each room, I run around the backyard perimeter, and I even looked behind a big tree.

No luck.

I’m starting to miss her.

The humans taking care of me are great. Their only issue…They don’t allow dogs in the bed…


But you know me. Big brown eyes. A wagging tail. And I’m in. Piper, the border terrier, follows my lead. She’s in too!  I’m going to sleep here every night until I see Kristina.

Woof Woof

PS. In case you didn’t know, Kristina’s books are all on sale  I’m the star in BLAZE.
