Danny and Mike

I have written about my friend Mike before in other venues, he of Mike and Beth fame. But now, I want to go into a little more detail concerning him. However, before we discuss Mike, perhaps I should introduce myself to all you neophytes out there. Not that there are many. Everyone knows who Danny […]

Danny and the Crab

Andrew and I have been having some fine ol’ adventures lately. Well, maybe fine is not the exact word. I’ll start with the light stuff first. Andrew is okay for a human, but he does leave a lot to be desired. Do you know he hasn’t bought me a chew toy in years? I’m talking […]

Danny and the Three Monsters

Hello, dog fans. It is I, Danny the Dog! I’ve been helping Andrew look after three Labrador retrievers. What a nightmare! There is Chloe, who is fourteen months old, and then there is Beau and Hank. They are both four months old and they are holy terrors. They live on a boat down at the […]

Danny Confesses

This post is dedicated to my good friend Piri who lives over in Scotland. Good morning, gentle souls; I am Daniel J. Daniels, Dog Extraordinaire. Most of you know me by my nom de plume, Danny the Dog. As another great writer (but not as good as me) once said, “A rose by any other […]

Georgia On My Mind

Georgia was my girl, she was my love. Georgia was taken from me. She is not of this earth anymore. Georgia awaits me in heaven. Georgia was taken from me last spring as she crossed a street. She was killed by a drunk driver. Winter is now coming on and the murderer has still not […]

Love

Love is never spontaneous. Love takes work. Love, over time, grows strong like a mighty oak. No sapling is Love. Love is soft and low. Love is hard as a rock. Love is not words. Love is action. Love is showing. Love does not have to be spoken. Life without Love is a long, lonesome […]

Weird Stuff

Note: Here’s another snippet of my youth. I don’t know why I’m writing so much about myself these days. Perhaps all those people who have, throughout the years, told me it wasn’t all about me were wrong. Maybe it is all about me. If not, I gotta get back to writing fiction. I’m feeling a […]

Fishin’

Johnny Donohue was my best friend when I was twelve years old. On Saturday mornings, we would go fishing. Because we would arise at 3:00 am and meet shortly thereafter, we called it “going fishing at three in the morning.” This particular Saturday morning when I arrived at Johnny’s house, two of his three brothers […]

Treasure

He stumbled upon the treasure quite by accident. He had been exploring the vicinity when he happened upon it. His first thought: This cannot be real. He cautiously approached. Someone might be playing a trick on him. Perhaps he was being observed. But no one sprung from a concealed location—no one yelled for him to […]
