This is more the journal of a writer than it is a traditional pack of "dog stories." In order to find focus for my writing, I've decided to center it around dogs on this site. I am not to dogs as the Wolfman is to wolves. I am merely a Dogman in that I've lived my entire life with dogs, I like them a lot, and recognize that they can supply seemingly inexhaustible material for short writing pieces.
There are essays, stories, humor, and anything else I might think of that's in some way related to dogs, or cats.
If you enjoy a story, you will find it contains links to other stories, either about the same dog or on the same theme. My goal is to create a hypertext dog playground, where the reader can start or stop anywhere, and move freely from one story to the next. While each piece is meant to stand alone, I am at the same time trying to create a more extended picture of my life with, and thoughts on, dogs.
The photos accompanying these writings are rarely mine, and should you be a copyright holder who objects to a photo's use, I will happily remove it upon notice. There are a few original photos of my dogs and cats, but fundamentally this is a website of original writing, with a Saturday Roundup of the Week's News of the Dog.
Please leave comments or opinions, and help me share my work with as large an audience as possible.
As of 2010, updates to From the Den of the Dogman will be much less frequent. I am still writing, just about things other than dogs. When I have a new piece relative to the Den, I'll go ahead and post it, but until then, we have our memories.
