Supplements For Dogs Fighting Cancer

Happy Monday everyone!  The weather was so beautiful this weekend and perfect for playing frisbee with Jake and Maggie.  I noticed they are a bit slower this spring than last and I think it’s due to putting on a few pounds so I’ve made the decision to take them off their treats for a while.  I’m hoping with more exercise and less sugar and fat, this will help.  Having taken care of three older dogs at the same time in the past, I worry about Jake and Maggie’s health and am always doing...

Gelatin And Beef Broth Dog Treat

Happy Friday everyone!  Happy “Friday Treats Friday” for you and your fur baby!  I found this super simple, two ingredient dog treat of gelatin and beef broth from Puppy Dog Pro!  This is the first time Jake and Maggie will experience a giggly treat like this and they absolutely loved these treats.  I gave them only one each because I don't want to upset their stomachs with a lot of something new.  When I sat down, they were both crawling all over me wanting me to get up and feed them another...

When To Spay And Neuter Your Pet

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I was looking at Jake and Maggie today and thinking that in June they will be four years old.  I remember asking the vet when was the earliest I could get them fixed as they were brother and sister, as well as, never wanting to breed them separately of course.  When and why is the best age to Spay and Neuter Your Pet?  There is so much information out there on the why’s and the when’s so I thought I’d compile this info into my post and let you decided.  I’m curious...

Galentine’s Tablescape

Happy Wednesday everyone!  In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I hosted a Galentine’s Day dinner on Monday night with two of my best friends with wine, lasagna, gnocchi, meatballs, and red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing.  As a take home treat, I bought chocolate covered apples and of course, made doggie bags for each of them to take home.  My dear friends brought me beautiful flowers and didn’t forget Jake and Maggie who got toys and treats!  We all had a great time and Galentine’s Day...
