Happy 13th birthday to our girl, Jade! She’s an amazing doggo! She’s doing so well with RV life. She loves to get out and sniff, play Frisbee, and eat all the cheese she can get into her mouth.
(Almost) Wordless Wednesday
At the vet today for routine care and vaccines. They were not nearly as pitiful as they look.
Dog Mom Pro Tip

But when the lightbulb went off above my head a couple of days ago it was life changing! So, let’s talk poo bag holders. You know, the cute little things you attach to… Continue reading Dog Mom Pro Tip
Dog Cookies (aka Cookie Crack)
Our dogs love these cookies. Seriously. They will dance for them. Even Jade the Diva who is (I swear) a cat in a dog suit. And y’all, they smell so freaking good! I promise they smell like human cookies. My mouth waters when I open the bag. I may or may not have tasted one.… Continue reading Dog Cookies (aka Cookie Crack)

No more ticks all summer and fall. … Continue reading AnimalEO Experiment
“Hope comes covered in fur.” John D. Waugh and Why I Love Scent Dogs
Canine scent detection seems like magic to me. Oh, I know there’s science to explain it. Though science cannot yet make anything that matches the skill of a dog’s nose. Watch this TEDx video where Donna Waugh explains it much better than I ever will. And always remember to trust your dog.

Here in the southeastern United States ticks are rampant so doing nothing is not a valid choice. After a little bit of research I hope I’ve found a solution… Continue reading Tick Season

Justice for Mia
Even though I try to remain positive here, sometimes someone commits evil. Sometimes we have to shed light on that evil act and talk about it. Today is that time. Last week a coward stacked some concrete blocks next to a locked privacy fence in my community, leaned over the fence and murdered Mia, a… Continue reading Justice for Mia
