  • So I Bought This Carrot….

    from My Brown Newfies

    Ive been looking for some new toys for the boys. Not just regular plush toys but something different.

    Something to spice up their life. Something they can use and get some enjoyment out of.

    Something that will occupy them for a bit.

    So I found this carrot. Its made by Planet Dog and you can stuff it with treats and let the dogs chew on it to work the treats out.

    My guys have never really been into things like this before but I thought I would give it a try and seeing that its summer, I thought I...

    This face.

    Its a face that gives the impression that he is so sweet and innocent.

    Im just laying here looking sad and sweet and this is all I do all day long.


    This sad pathetic face finds itself in more mischief than you can imagine.

    Its the kind of mischief that most other dogs dont find themselves in.

    Take Leroy and my alarm clock.

    The alarm clock seems to be a source of ongoing mischief for both of my dogs.

    It should be a simple electronic device that does nothing more than wake me up in...

  • R.I.P. Flip Flop

    A Proper Burial

    Another one of my favorite shoes bit the dust late last week due to a very big and clumsy newfie paw.

    The Newfie paw belonged to Leroy.

    Its the same paw that has ruined several slippers because Leroy has an issue with invading my personal space when Im walking.

    In this case I guess you could say that it technically was my fault for wearing flip flops on a walk with a 160 pound dog who has issues of invading personal feet space, but hey, its summer and my feet live in flip flops...

    Instead of making Leroy a cake for his birthday last week I mentioned that I made some berry popsicles as a special treat.

    They were a big hit so I thought I would share the recipe with you in case you are looking for a super simple cool treat for your dog this summer.

    You only need 4 ingredients, one of which is a secret ingredient!

    Blueberries Strawberries Plain, all natural, nonfat yogurt Coconut oil <Secret ingredient!

    Honestly, I didnt measure it out.

    I just threw some plain nonfat...

  • On Turning 40

    Last week I quietly turned 40.



    I turned 40.

    Im no longer thirty something.

    I am 40.

    No matter how often I say it, it doesnt seem right.

    I dont feel 40.

    Well my body feels 40 but my mind feels like its still a young 30.

    You know, almost an adult, but not really.

    I like nonsense. I always have.

    As one of my favorite writers once said:

    I like to laugh and have fun and surround myself with people who do the same.

    That is why for my 40th birthday I wanted to be surrounded by my family.

    The ones who put...

  • Stop Violating Your Bag Of Dog Food #PureEssentials

    from My Brown Newfies

    Have you ever gone exploring for a new dog food and wondered what size the kibble was?

    I do that all the time and Ive spent a lot of time trying to feel the size of a kibble through a bag.

    Sometimes I feel as though I may have violated the bag because Im trying to get a really good feel.

    Kibble size matters to a lot of dogs and its hard to feel the size of kibble through a dog food bag.

    If all dog food bags came with a little window, life would be easier.

  • Happy 6th Birthday Leroy

    from My Brown Newfies

    Six years ago this little ball of fluff was born and a few months later graced us with his awesomeness and changed our lives forever.

    I knew he was going to be trouble the first time our eyes met and he has not let me down yet and I wouldnt want it any other way.

    Leroy and I have definitely butted heads over the last 6 years and our bond took some time to become solid, but with a little bit of understanding, patience and a whole lot of snuggle time we got there and Im confident now that even...

  • Ice Water And Dogs. Revisiting The Myth

    from My Brown Newfies

    I like my ice cold

    I remember reading about this myth several years ago when I was sitting on the back porch with my husband.

    Ice or ice water can cause bloat in dogs.

    Lets pick this myth apart, again.

    Weve talked about bloat here several times.

    Bloat is a serious medical condition in a dog when they eat or drink too much or too fast. When they are eating or drinking fast they have the potential to swallow a lot of air. This air can cause the stomach to fill with gas and potentially flip causing...
