National Pet Day & More

“Everyone thinks they have the best dog and none of them are wrong… ” – W.R. Purche You heard it here first, well maybe not since it was established in 2006, but National Pet Day is on April 11!  How are you going to celebrate?  Well for most of us pet owners and lovers, everyday…

You Licky Dog, You!

A good dog, like a best friend, are like four-leaf clovers, hard to find but lucky to have.  In March we celebrate luck while we share licks and kisses with our four-legged friends.  There are many reasons why our dogs lick, whether it is lucky or not is the question.  First, let’s explore lucky licks!…

L-O-V-E Is a Four-Legged Word

Ah, February…the month that is all about that little four-legged word…LOVE!  It’s time to freshen things up a bit in the ways we tell our dogs we love them and discover the ways our dogs tell us they love us.  And while on Valentine’s Day, we will obviously have a celebration of hugs and kisses,…

Happy 2019!

Happy 2019!  The New Year is here and so is the time to “paws” and reflect on 2018.  It’s also the time to set new goals and make our New Year’s resolutions.  But what about our four-legged friends?  What would be on their New Year’s resolution list?  Bark less?  Wag more?  Be nicer to the…

Mark your calendar for Tuesday,…

“Bark” to School & “Bark” to Basics

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Bells will be ringing…school bells that is.  And with back to school comes after-summer cleaning, organizing back-to-school supplies and updating closets with new clothes and shoes.  For most of us our dogs are like our children and while they are not necessarily going back to school, it…

Summer, Sun ‘n (Lava)Sox!

Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing with your dog…if that’s your thing.  But seriously we all want to be outside when the sun is out and one of the best ways to enjoy this time of year is by being under that big ‘ole sun with our four-legged friends! We all know…
