Itchy

Last night Max and I were ambling along Ke’eaumoku Street, trading wisecracks and sass as good buddies often do. We had pretty much agreed that hedgehogs would have a better reputation if they shared the hedge a little more. But I digress. We noticed a new food emporium had opened. Ladies and […]

Captain Kirk & Corn Chips

I woke up to the smell of corn chips and I knew what my wife’s first words of the morning would be. “The dog needs a bath.” See, when a Maltese starts getting gamey it smells exactly like corn chips, especially near the paws. Left alone, the smell eventually devolves […]
