Dreaming of a Green Christmas

Guys, I just love the holidays. My people are home more, and we go visit their families, and there’s a lot of food around–and somehow a lot of it ends up within basset range. It’s pretty much the best. There’s also a lot of stuff around during the holidays. My people come home with bags…

Great Rot!

Guys, I’ve been gone a while. I’m sorry about that. I’ve been reeeeeeally busy napping on the couch, snoozing on the porch, sleeping in the sunny corner of the yard… And my person has been really busy researching rotting food and stuff. She had a lot to say about it, but honestly I just pretended…

The Dog-Eared Page: Dakota Access Pipeline Edition

I’ve been doing a lot of reading about what’s happening at the Sacred Stone Camp between the Standing Rock Sioux, the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the police. It’s pretty upsetting to see how these people are being treated as they try to protect not just the sacred land that belongs to them, but the water that…

The Dog-Eared Page: Hurricane Edition

I do a lot of reading. I’m pretty much a self-taught basset, so I like to keep up on the latest sustainability news. So every week or so I’d like to offer you a collection of stories I’ve been reading about sustainability, resilience, conservation–you know, wherever my nose leads me. This week my friends on…

Get Wild for Wildlife!

This doggie can get pretty wild, let me tell you. And when the partying gets too ruff (get it?) there are great vets and emergency vets around to get my tail wagging again. But when my ACTUAL wild cousins–those undomesticated critters who still roam the forests for food and never trained a human to do…

Jump on the Local-motive!

As a dog, I don’t have a whole lot of food options–it’s dry, brown meat-flavored bits day in and day out (with the occasional apple slice or piece of dropped chicken thrown in there). But you humans, your choices are basically endless. Especially you humans living in Asheville. There are about 1,000 reasons to choose…

America!

We’re settling in to watch the first presidential debate. Comfy couch–check. American flag–check. Beer to make it all more tolerable–check! Maybe you’re not into all the barking that goes on in a debate, but there are plenty of ways to make sure you’re an informed citizen. And one of the most important things you can…

Greenways, please!

Guys. I love greenways. They’re a great place to take your people on a walk so they can socialize and get some exercise. Plus, you can meet other nice dogs. This afternoon we went to Reeds Creek Greenway for a little jaunt. We have quite a few little greenways in Asheville–including a new one at…

I’m Bailey…

…and I like sustainability. And apple slices. And sleeping on the couch. But mostly I want to talk to you about sustainability. I’m going to tell you all about different sustainability projects happening in my town–greenways, community gardens, eco-houses, all kinds of great stuff. And with every post I’ll share an easy sustainability tip that you…
