Grooming- Sometimes it is All You Need

If you read my earlier post two days ago, you know that poor Chico woke up severely limping on his right front paw.  So, after I had talked myself into believing that Chico could have a productive life as a tripawd dog, I loaded him into the car and headed to Bayshore Animal Clinic.  Of course, in typical Chico fashion, he started shaking like a leaf as soon as we walked in the door.  He weighed in at 17 pounds (still would like him to lose one or two more) and we headed to our assigned room. Dr. Stuart walked in, we muzzled Chico….yes, he is that bad at the vet….and put him on...

Chico Dog is Limping

If you have an extra moment today, will you please send a positive thought or two out to my little Chico?  He woke up this morning barely able to walk due to a lame front paw.  He is my little ball of energy….running, jumping and my partner on daily jaunts through the neighborhood.  Today though he sadly waited by the baby stroller as I loaded in my son and then looked out the window as we all left for our morning ritual.   We have an appointment today with our favorite vet, Dr. Stuart Rosenburg, at Bayshore Animal Clinic.  Could it be dog arthritis?  An overgrown dewclaw?  I hope...

Dogs Gone Wild

Posted by on Sep 4, 2012 in Health & Wellness, Nutrition, Paws for Thought | 0 comments

You know the saying, “when the cats away the mice will play.”  Well, that is exactly what happened in my house this weekend.  My son and I left for a couple of days to enjoy time with my parents and my husband and fur kids stayed home.  Eating, walking, playing and tackling a minor honey-do list. When I say dogs gone wild…it was really only one dog that went a bit loony and my husband was home the entire time.  Hmmmm…..maybe it wasn’t dogs going wild.  Rather, pack leader not paying attention. Abe, our first child succeeded in eating two pieces of strawberry...

My Good Dogs and Their Kid

My Good Dogs and Their Kid

I believe at heart, all dogs are good dogs.  Or, at least strive to be good dogs.  There are many dog breeds in the world today and my two fur kids are definitely couture.  They are a melting pot of mixed breeds which make them all the more special to me. Abe is most likely a Labrador Retriever mix and Chico is some combination of Chihuahua and Corgi perhaps.  I did purchase a DNA test (Wisdom Panel) for each of them and will be swabbing their cheeks soon!  Most importantly, they are both dog rescue success stories! Prior to adopting Abe, over eight years ago, my husband and I knew that dog...

Cheeky Chats- My New Favorite Tee!

Posted by on Aug 21, 2012 in Lifestyle, Products | 0 comments

Admittedly, I am a sucker for cute t-shirts.  Especially if they contain the following criteria:  are pet inspired, attitudish, well fit and adorable.  My latest find is Cheeky Chats.  Check it out.  Especially if you are a cat lover or know someone who is.  I think I might have a problem though.  I already own six tee’s and discovered the site only three weeks ago.  Thanks to my sister-in-law Tamsen for instigating this cheeky obsession! At least I work in the pet world…so they can be considered a uniform…right?  Purrrfect! Wags,...
