All Coned Out – Almost

Like the energizer bunny, the crazy ideas just keep on coming. For whatever reason, I find sticking to a word and trying to find as many visual puns for that word is the way that my mind works. So I’m still stuck on “cone” as in the thing the vet puts around your pet’s head… Continue reading All Coned Out – Almost

Strange Day Indeed

You know your day is going to be weird when you receive emails from your own email address stating that you’re a hot Russian bride looking for a husband. But can you imagine this kind of day? You wake up, everything is normal, you have your breakfast, take care of the morning constitutional, and then… Continue reading Strange Day Indeed

Doggy Shoes

This is Oliver, my previous foster dog. Such a cute little man, especially when dressed up in dachshund shoes.

Dog Park Time

Time for a trip to the dog park. Today, the three musketeers all got bundled up in their sweaters and hoodies to weather the subzero temperatures here in California. I think it was 72 degrees, but you just never know when that wind is gonna turn and freeze your butt off. Everything went well, the… Continue reading Dog Park Time

Clothes Your Dog

Winter coats and sweaters and hoodies. I spend more on clothing for my dogs than for me. And you’re thinking I’m out of my mind, but Elmo weighs 6 lbs and Peach and Bronnie are around 13 – 15 lbs. They all have short hair and the frigid temperatures here in California are just too… Continue reading Clothes Your Dog

Soggy Dog

It’s finally raining! Something we seriously need here in California. So this morning, I open up the back door to the back yard to let the dogs out and they all took one sniff and looked at me like, “Seriously? You think we’re going out there and getting wet? No way!” So, on with my¬†coat… Continue reading Soggy Dog

What’s New?

What’s new? This site, that’s what. Cold Nose Design is finally here. So, what that might be? I’m a dog lover, pun lover, and designer. Put them together and you have punny dog designs. There are some nice artsy ones too, but I tend to go for the warped, the ones that make you groan.… Continue reading What’s New?

Halloween Dogs

Halloween. My favorite holiday of the year. I can’t say the same for my dogs. Out come the costumes along with the look of horror on their faces. Before you think horrible thoughts, they do get rewarded with many treats! Of course since Elmo is the smallest and received costume presents from his Auntie Cookie,… Continue reading Halloween Dogs

Meet the Fur Balls

Three of them. I never thought I would end up with three dogs. Two was always the perfect number, especially since my first dog, Peach, “adopted” my second dog, Elmo. He just wiggled his way into her heart. And number three, Bronnie, did the same to me. I love dachshunds and this one proved irresistable.… Continue reading Meet the Fur Balls
