My wife, the lovely Doreen​ from Waukesha, is rescuing another three dogs today from a shelter in the south, bringing them north to no-kill shelters so they can be adopted instead of euthanized. While I am proud of the work she is doing, it shouldn’t be necessary. Adopt your pets from animal shelters rather than […]

“Nature teaches beasts to know their friends.” Coriolanus Act II, Scene I I remember when my wife Doreen first mentioned Nelson to me. “Doreen, I just can’t have a dog named Nelson.” Former city of Waukesha Mayor Larry Nelson was out of office less than a year when my wife decided we needed another dog, […]

So the Obama’s got a new dog, and our friend Kevin Binversie points out that it’s just another passenger on a military aircraft that liberals once loved to hate. Lib­er­als used to love point­ing to the Osprey as their project of choice to crit­i­cize the Pen­ta­gon.  Not only was it “unsafe,” but it was also […]

This Facebook post on the Siberian Husky Owners page made me wonder how this person manages to feed herself. So, I’m getting a mini lop rabbit and I dont know what my Sibe/GSD’s reaction is going to be.. any advice? Most of the other dog owners were polite enough not to ask,”How stupid are you?” […]

It’s been a rough weekend. I came home yesterday evening to discover our Siberian Husky Ingrid on the floor near our kitchen unable to get up. I managed to get her up only to watch her fall again. I got her into our bedroom where she sleeps and she collapsed again. Doreen gave Ingrid water […]

The Lovely Doreen let me sleep in this morning while she finished making her world famous chocolate-covered carmel pretzel rods. When I woke up, I looked at the foot of the bed and noticed something odd. I knew it wasn’t a mouse. Too big, and we don’t have mice. Kind of looking like a small […]

We added another resident to Casa Wigderson today. Meet Nelson: We adopted Nelson from a Siberian Husky rescue organization. Nelson was named by the rescue after a type of butterfly, but he is definitely not delicate. He is more like Admiral Horatio Nelson, and like his namesake, Nelson has an injury to he right paw […]

From today’s Police Blotter in the Waukesha Freeman: “(Thursday) 11:44 a.m. – Someone stole a boxer from a locked vehicle in the 2300 block of Kossow Road.” If they are referring to a dog and not Mike Tyson, the police already have someone to arrest, and it’s for cruelty to animals.

The Waukesha Freeman reported today that the dog has been trouble before, chasing a neighborhood child. We could have been discussing an entirely different situation had the dog  been successful in catching the child. On the other hand, if the dog had not attacked the owner, how long before it would have attacked someone else? […]
