I admit it: my dogs are spoiled. I go out of my way to make sure they are comfortable, but my home  has laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is durable, easy to keep clean and nice to look at, but it’s cold and hard as cement. I think there’s a doggie hell where it’s the only [...]

How much do you spend on dog food: $30, $40, $50 dollars a month? You might be forking out all that cash to feed your dog garbage. That’s right garbage! In fact, it would be a crime to feed a human what most pet food companies distribute. The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) [...]

Everyone likes to drink out of something clean, but would you drink from a cup that recently contained hydrochloric acid or hypochlorite bleach in it? Your answer should be no! In fact, I’d venture to say it’s common sense to avoid drinking even trace-amounts of acids or bleaches. But exposure to these harmful chemicals [...]

Just as you child-proof your home before the new baby begins to walk, you have to consider that your new dog will go after just about anything in the home.

Depending on where you live, this might seem a bit odd, especially if there’s a few inches of snow waiting to be shoveled off your driveway. I’m just speculating, but I’m guessing whoever chose January doesn’t even own a dog. I know my dog’s would’ve preferred April. If someone wants to start a petition to [...]

Sadie and Rusty love to play fetch. On most days I bring along their “Chuck it” and they get to chase after that ever elusive tennis ball. There are days however, when I prefer to just walk and let Sadie and Rusty entertain themselves. Usually, on these toy-less days Sadie goes to work.
Most dogs like [...]

People often ask me how I ended up with such great dogs. My usual answer is consistency; both my husband and I enact the same rules. For example: To prevent begging at the table neither of us feed our dogs (Sadie and Rusty) while we are eating at the dinner table. Still we often save [...]
