The Carrot Chronicles: Carrot Sushi in Easton

  Tom, Max, Jack and I just got back from a Memorial Day trip to St. Michael’s, which is to say there will be numerous dog-friendly travel posts over the next couple of weeks.  While the Bichons were perfectly content to chill in the hotel room, we opted to take them with us on outings...

Team Bichon Frises

On June 8th, Jack, Max, Amy, me, and a group of our friends and family will be taking part in the CCFA “Take Steps For Crohn’s and Colitis” walk as Team Bichon Frises. Naturally, we wanted to have matching team t shirts, to show off our Bichon pride. Luckily, our friend Rachel Cylus happened to have...

A St. Michael’s Wedding Fit for Bichon Frises

Today is May 22, which means Tom and I have been married for two years.  We met at Johns Hopkins in 2007, got our Bichon Frise Jack in 2009, and, like good dog owners, were married two years later in May 2011. A few days ago, the American Kennel Club posted an article about dogs...

The Carrot Chronicles: Stand Tall for Carrots

When Bichons are properly motivated, they can pull off some pretty impressive physical feats. Max, who has old-man bones and normally has to be lifted into the car or onto high places, will gladly leap onto a couch and stand precariously on the arm if it gets him closer to food left on the coffee...

Max Morgan: Intrepid Wilderness Explorer

When bichons go for a walk, only about half the time is actually spent walking. The rest is a mixture of peeing on things, eyeing squirrels suspiciously, and darting off in random directions to sniff interesting foliage. Max takes this last item to a new and inspiring level. While he is usually content to stop...

Bichons And Their Narcissistic Millenial Owners

In the most recent Time Magazine cover story, Joel Stein writes that Millennials (born 1980-2000) are “lazy, narcissists who still live with their parents,” and dubs them the “Me Me Me Generation” because they are three times more likely to have narcissistic personality disorder than their baby boomer parents.  The article provoked a strong reaction and led...

The Carrot Chronicles: Carrots and Eggies

Bichons are not picky eaters. I’ve seen Jack eat many things–cardboard, post it notes, days old apple cores found on the sidewalk, earplugs, etc. They are, however, prone to allergies, including food allergies. Max has this especially badly. Since he was a puppy, he’s had to eat hypoallergenic kibble, which can only be obtained with...

I Love My Maman! Mother’s Day from a Bichon Frise

Hi, humans!  This is Jack Morgan-Smith writing.  I know I don’t get around to blogging very often, and in fact, this is my first post.  It has something to do with the fact that I don’t have hands, which makes it difficult for me to type.  But mostly, it’s because I am lazy and would...

The Carrot Chronicles

Like good Millenials, Amy and I keep a close eye on the Google Analytics accounts for all our various online projects. And recently, we saw a strange trend; we’ve been receiving hundreds of hits to Married With Bichons from people searching “dogs” + “carrots.” Why people are coming to our blog in droves to hear...

Honey I Misplaced the Bichon Frise

I consider myself a great Bichon mom, and treat Jack as if he were my child.  But yesterday I temporarily “lost” my dog.  Since Thursday was the first day it hasn’t rained this week, after lunch, we were eager to go on a walk around Clipper Mill.  The weather was lovely, and we took about...
