Christmas is Coming – Is That The Mailman?

presents2014Just like us humans, dogs also wait for their presents when Christmas is approaching, as you can see in the above picture.  The bad thing about it is that I don’t know yet what to get for them.  Any ideas?  I think an orthopedic bed.  They all go to the front window when they hear the doorbell ring expecting goodies for them.  Brats! presents2014 (2)And this is what most people end up seeing once I open the door.  Two adorable furry kids waiting for presents.  Talk about not having any patience.  Have a great weekend.

Comfortable Bedding For Senior Dogs

Alex, my 12 1/2 year old canine companion, is a senior and I’ve realized that comfortable bedding for dogs should be high on a pet parent’s list, but much more so if your dog happens to be a senior dog.  Alex loves to be close to a vent, as you can see in the above picture.

Alex’s favorite bed is the one shown above.  Yes, that is a heating pad.  I paid a little over $100 for that bed, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that it was worth it.  She loves it and it is pretty thick, which is great.  Now that is cold Alex has a comfortable bed, a sweater she wears indoors, and a heating pad to keep her warm and help her with her mobility since she has an ACL injury.  Have a great week.

Argo, Our Visiting Puppy

puppy1I took Alex out for a short walk in the morning before Argo, a cute puppy, came to stay with us for the weekend.  Alex is always excited when there is a dog/puppy coming to stay with us, but after the introduction period, she just goes back to doing what she does best, and that is sleeping.

puppy2I’ve been training Argo for the last few weeks on Basic Obedience so I am glad he is staying with us this weekend so I can go over what he’s learned so far.  Doesn’t he have a cute face?  Have a great weekend.
