Red Rocket is an adorable dachshund who was hit by a car, lost his left front leg, and was abandoned by his owner. He was taken to Heartland Animal Hospital where the hospital staff ministered to his needs with the help of monies from the Magnum Fund. PALS Animal Rescue was charged with screening prospective adoptive families and we applied to welcome him into our home. He's ours now and we're blogging to share his continued adventures!

At our last parent-teacher conference at Edward's elementary school a very dedicated music teacher attempted to explain to us how Edward's singing lacked pitch. As a public educator myself I try to take Edward's schooling very seriously but the reality was that if this gentleman was expecting Mommy to help with "pitch development homework" he was talking to the wrong parent. The only person in our house with worse pitch than Edward is his mother. As an art historian I am dedicated to the principle that "a picture is worth a thousand words" so I offer this photo as evidence. Has anyone, EVER, seen Hank look less than thrilled, excited, and ecstatically happy during his waking hours? Clearly Edward's attempts to entertain Hank with singing and clapping were not met with a standing ovation.
