So, it's the end of 2014 and while most people would expect me to kick it down the stairs while flipping it the bird and maybe screaming "Fuck you, you fucking fuck!" into its stupid little 2014 face, I'm already feeling rather warm and fuzzy toward...

Happy Holidays 2014, Y'all!

Hello!Here is this year's holiday card. I love it because, I mean, HOGAN MCSMALLS, but also because I didn't have to do anything! My badass artist husband knocked it out and all I had to do was squeal, "cuuuuuuute!" when he showed it to me. (All cred...

Six Shits

The other day, I went for a long walk with Hogan McSmalls.  It should've been a pleasant stroll.  The sun was shining, it was a beautiful 80-degree January day in L.A.  But, Hogie pooped a whopping six times in an hour.  Think abo...

A Holiday Card For You

Dear Kendragarden readers,Here is our official holiday card!  We took 10 pics on Photo Booth and Hogie looks like he's deeply troubled in every one of them.  I'm not sure if it was my hat, Tim's headband or his tie but he wasn't having it.

Health, Etc.

I read an article once that said a blog that hasn't been updated in a day is a sick blog.  If it hasn't been updated in a week, it's a dead blog.  So, today, I am writing to you from the grave.  (It kinda feels like it since I'm on the...

Round-up!  Round-up!  Round-up!  I just typed that blank faced and then after I wrote it, I sighed for a really long time.  Ha!  So, I'm not as excited as my exclamation points would have you believe but I am happy to be roun...

Kendragarden Tells You How To Choose A Dog

Hi.  I'm sitting outside on a pretty creepy Coffee Bean patio writing this because there's an open house at our condo today.  People are walking around looking in closets and most likely judging me based on how many pairs of black boots I o...

Porge McSmalls

Hogan McSmalls needs a lot of encouragement.  You know people like that.  They need quite a few compliments and pats on the back and "atta girls" to make it through the day.  There's nothing wrong with it, it's just how they're built.
