Did you lose a pet this year? This dog memorial ornament is a nice way to honor a lost pet during the holiday season. In June, we lost our sweet pup, Honey to lung cancer. To remember her during the holidays, Dan and I decided to make some super easy dog memorial ornaments to add […]
Fall is my husband’s favorite season. As I mourn the loss of warm weather, swimming, and wearing shorts, Dan revels in the changing leaves and crisp air. Our beagle, Honey, is right there with him. She enjoys basking in the warm sun and sniffing the wind while the leaves fall off the trees. Although fall can bring beautiful scenery, holiday fun, and tons of good food it can also bring some risks for pets.

So, lately, I’ve been dealing with a new cat. We just recently moved into a new house and he showed up on moving day. He was running behind two teenage boys walking down the road. It was really late at night and we were trying to get the last load finished up. He stopped following […]

If you are like us, your dog is a big part of your life (she is our furbaby). If we could, we would take her on vacation with us everywhere we go. Okay, I would… not sure about my husband. When our beagle, Honey, was around 2 years old, we took her camping with us. I had no clue about camping with a dog, and learned a lot from the experience! Here are a few things I wish I had known before taking her camping with us.
Our beagle, Honey, had to have a lump removed from her ear about a week ago. She came home from the vet wearing the “cone of shame” so that she wouldn’t be able to scratch her ear and open the stitches. She’s worn one before, after she was spayed, but she was very little and I’m sure doesn’t remember.
Most people know that a dog should start with a food designed for puppies and then switch to an adult dog food. However, what some people may not realize (including me) is that as your dog enters its senior years (age 7+), you should switch to a food for senior dogs. Why? According to the ASPCA, as a dog ages some of the following health issues may arise and many of them can be managed with diet.
When it comes to the health and well-being of our furbaby, Honey, there isn’t much my husband and I wouldn’t do to make sure she is happy and healthy. Often times this means spending a small fortune on the best that money can buy for her. For example, we are about to spend around $1000 to have the vet remove a growth on her ear and clean her teeth while she is under anesthesia. Some people may think we are crazy, but she is our baby and we have her best interest in mind.
