    Many of you were around about 3 years ago when we welcomed another pet to the family.

    It was Gibby the guinea pig and he was Bobbys dream pet.

    Ive was super excited to welcome Gibby to the family and I knew that even though Gibby was Bobbys pet, I would eventually become the sole care taker and we would have so much fun.

    Thats the way it goes with kids. It went that way with me when I was little and I expected it go that with Bobby..and it did for a little bit but then I became allergic to...

  • The Kids Have More Proof That I Love The Dogs More Than Them

    A few weeks ago Gracie and I had to go to a local craft store to pick something up for my sisters birthday.

    Gracie never misses a chance to go to the craft store because she always suckers whom ever she is with to buy her something.


    Im onto to her game so I knew she wasnt going with me because she wanted to bond.

    She wanted something.

    She didnt know what she wanted because I sprang it on her without warning and she didnt have time to plot her scheme, which is exactly where she went wrong.


  • Our Christmas Tree Is Trimmed With Lights And Balls And Now I Wonder If My Dog Will Eat It All

    Trimming the tree is my favorite thing to do for the holidays.

    We all have our separate box of personal ornaments and everyone takes great care finding just the right spot for their favorite ornaments.

    Because we have large dogs with happy tails and a dog who likes to eat things we have special rules when it comes to ornament placement.

    Breakables go on the top part of the tree.

    The only food type ornaments allowed are gingerbread men and they also have to go towards the top and on the inner part...

  • Is The Assisi Loop Working?

    As promised Im updating on the progress of Leroys pressure sores with using the Assisi Loop.

    We have been dealing with this pressure sore for a good 2 months now with no improvement. It never got any worse but it never got any better.

    Then we started using the Assisi Loop and within about a week we started to see a noticeable change in the pressure sore.

    So what exactly is the Assisi Loop?

    The loop is a medical device that uses tPEMF technology that helps reduce pain and inflammation.

    tPEMF =...

  • Squeak This Not That While I’m Trying To Take A Nap. Hear Doggy

    A few weeks ago I camehomefrom work early.

    I was super tired and the kids were still at school so I decided to seize the moment and sneak in a short nap.

    Naps are a very rare luxury here so whenever a rare opportunity to sneak one in presents itself, Im all over it.

    The only obstacle standing in my way of this rare nap opportunity was 2 brown dogs so I carefully calculated my time.

    If I take the dogs for a walk, give them a snack and have a small playtime session that would give approximately 60...

  • The Weigh In

    So I have a dog scale that I inherited when I worked at the vet.

    They were getting a new one so I jumped at the chance to take the old one off their hands.

    I was so excited to get this scale home and I swore I would use it all the time.

    Well about 2 years later Im finally putting it to use.

    Thats right.

    I brushed the dust off it and my husband fixed the part that was broken and calibrated it.

    My motivation was Leroy.

    I need to keep a closer watch on his weight because I dont want to be blindsided...

  • A Thanksgiving Wish For You

    This Thanksgiving, as Im gathered around the table with my family getting ready to eat myself silly, we will all go around the table and say what we are thankful for.

    It will be the usual stuff.

    We are thankful for our family and friends.

    For our health.

    And to all be together.

    We are blessed.

    I know that and you know that but what worries me at this time of the year is that some people overlook how blessed they are.

    The holidays can be a very lonely and stressful time for some and I can totally...

    A few weeks ago I was contacted by Quaker Pet Group to see if I would be interested in featuring some of their products in holiday gift guide.

    Im a big fan of the Quaker Pet Group since they are the master minds behind our all time favorite dog toy, the goDog Furballz, so I jumped at the chance to try out some of their newer products that are available just in time for the holidays.

    Besides their adorable collection of holiday goDog toys, (the dinosaur is my personal favorite) and their very...
