Does Your Doggy Have the Winter Blues?
The winter can be just as much of a drain on our dogs as it is for us! I know that I miss the sunshine, wearing shorts and tank tops, going to the dog park, and spending time at my home-away-from-home on the Tennessee River (also know as my in-laws’ houseboat). Our dogs can be affected by […]
I Have an Itch that Needs Scratching
Wondering Why Your Puppy Might be Itchy? Unfortunately the list of possible reasons for a puppy to have itchy skin is practically endless.

It seems as if they shed so much they should be bald. Huge clumps of hair just fall from their bodies and roll along down my hallways. Double-coated canines […]

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. If you want to help, here are some […]
Dog Days of Summer Safety
Naptimes at my house are some of the best parts of my day. I get to sit back and work on whatever I want-like writing a blog, and all of my doggies and my guest doggies get to relax and sleep. There are currently dogs on the sofa next to me, on the floor by […]

Have a Red, White and Barking Blue Fourth of July!
I don’t know about everybody else, but I think my dogs get tired of seeing the world from behind the backyard fence or from the end of a leash. I KNOW they like to run full speed and sniff every spot any other animal has ever walked near. I also know my cats are tired […]
