Sits-tahs! I’m very happy you’re here. Welcome to Rhymes with Safari, so named because way back in 2002, when my blog was an infant, a friend known to me only through the Internet asked how to pronounce my name, Kari.
If you read my recent post on the Possession read-along, you’ll see that I don’t know too much about poetry, so that explains the syllable discrepancy between Kari and Safari, but since I started using that comparison, as opposed to Sorry, Ferrari, or Atari (yeah, it’s been a long time since that last one was relevant), I’ve enjoyed the occasional nickname of Kari Safari.
Over the years, Rhymes with Safari has covered an eclectic bunch of topics, but during the past few years, it’s evolved into a dog blog. My dogs are my passion. I am currently seeking representation for my memoir, Bark and Lunge: The Isis Story, about my reactive German shepherd who died suddenly a few years ago.
My beau, Rob, and I are now the proud parents of Leo and Mia, also German shepherds.
I have other interests as well, notably pop culture. My top-visited post, actually, has very little to do with dogs. It’s called Spider-Man’s Balls. So, uh, enjoy that. And before you decide to click off this site forevermore, please have a look at some other more representative posts:
