How to Care for Older Dogs with Arthritis   Recently updated !

Today I welcome you guest blogger Annie from Best Dog Crates, who is sharing with us today some information and tips on how to care for older dogs with arthritis.  This was a topic that immediately spoke to me because two years ago when Charlie was getting his first CCL surgery, we learned that he had arthritis and that gradually over time it would get worse.  Sounds scary, right?  Well, it doesn’t have to be.  You can manage it but it’s not something that goes away.  With Charlie, we’ve changed his diet a bit, we now have several orthopedic beds around […]

2017 Christmas cards

Our 2017 Christmas Cards 2

Hello friends!  Today I am going to share with you our 2017 Christmas cards.  Every year, I always say that I’m going to get my act together and send out cards early, but that never seems to be the case and I’m always left so pressed for time.  For the last two years, I’ve contemplated just scrapping the cards altogether but I’m really glad that I’ve stuck with it them and frankly, I’d miss not adding another card to my bulletin board at work, another year of the pups gracing the front of our cards.  Shutterfly is my go-to for when I want to print any pictures and make […]

2017 Royal Canin Dog Show

2017 Royal Canin Dog Show

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I often prefer animals over people and that couldn’t be any more true.  Attending the 2017 Royal Canin Dog Show was a definite must again this year, as we really, really enjoyed going last year and what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon in good company, surrounded by hundreds of my four-legged friends?  I can’t think of many other things that bring as much joy, but that’s just my opinion….  And you know that I had a smile plastered on my face the entire time, so that’s a great day in […]
