Life Lately – Newbarket Dog Festival & More Dog Photos 3   Recently updated !

So I think it’s pretty safe to say if you don’t like dogs, you probably want to skip over this post.  And in actuality, if you don’t like pets in general, perhaps this is not the space for you since I am animal and dog obsessed.  *smiles*  This past weekend, I attended a dog festival in the town that I live in called Newbarket.  It has been ongoing for at least 5 years or so now and over the years, I’ve worked the event at our pet sitting booth, other years I’ve been pet sitting and unable to come out […]

Charlie post-surgery

Charlie Update 13

So we are now on day 3 post-surgery for Charlie. He had his much-anticipated surgery on Tuesday morning with his orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Isakow.

You start purchasing dog-friendly furniture or furniture that is more suited towards […]


Charlie CCL 2017

Here we go Again 23

Almost two years ago exactly, Charlie was having surgery to repair a torn CCL in his left hind knee.  Well, you guessed it – we are in the same boat, my friends.  Charlie has injured his back right leg and it looks exactly like it did when he tore his ligament two years ago. Charlie was at my mom’s house, having been dropped off with his brother on Saturday night so Jeff and I could go up to visit our friend’s, Tara and Erik.  Everything was peachy yesterday… Until we got back to my mom’s house after Father’s Day dinner […]
