Oh where, oh where can that fur-baby-sitter be?

I like the idea of balance in my life!  I know the importance of vacations! I understand puppy parent separation anxiety! And I completely feel the need to have my fur-babies always in the hands of people we totally trust. We have never used a kennel. We just can’t! For the majority of time, we have had a pet/house-sitter who has come to our house.  It is …

My ZEN Garden of Mutual Harmony will not make my dogs sick!

Many of us can envision a lovely garden at this time.  Better yet, we envision our dogs running through the tulips. DID YOU KNOW TULIPS ARE NOT GOOD FOR DOGS? A dog friendly garden has to be well thought out because it can either make our dogs sick or happy depending on the choices we make. Now that I have the space in the back, …

MIRACLES HAPPEN…WE JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE!

I thought that I would be writing a very sad post this morning but I am not.  Last night, we spent most of our night at the DMV emergency animal hospital after Kayla, our beloved Pug, fell or jumped off the bed and could not feel her legs.  We spent a long time talking about options with the Vet but I …
