I feel like lately I may be giving the false impression that Kit has turned into a lazy old man.  He turned 8 last month, and I know that recently I've mentioned his arthritis.  That coupled with the fact that a majority of the pictures I've posted of him lately are just of him laying down relaxing, I can see why people might assume that he's left his hyper, playful days behind him.  ...continue reading "Kit’s Still Got It"

Chris and I are gearing up to get a new (to us, at least) car soon!  To a lot of people it probably seems weird that we don't have one already, but we live in the city.  Between public transit, taxis, and Uber we've never had an issue getting around our city and the surrounding areas.  But we don't want to live in the city forever.  Getting a car is the first step of our escape plan, plus will allow us to travel more and greatly expand our adventure radius. ...continue reading "Dog Car Safety"

Our first pet subscription box review of 2017!  Our January Pooch Perks box got here last Friday.  The theme this month is "New Year, New You", and Pooch Perks included a handy insert of winter dog care tips.  Timely considering that it actually snowed here the day after we received our Pooch Perks box. ...continue reading "January 2017 Pooch Perks Review"

Despite often being thought of as low maintenance cage pets, rabbits actually require a good amount of exercise, both physical and mental, to be happy.  My rabbit, Barnaby, is a senior who just turned 10 last November.  Barnaby has definitely slowed down a bit with age.  He often times prefers a leisurely stroll around his room over running about like a crazy bun.  He sleeps more than he used too.  That being said, Barnaby still very much engages with the world around him. ...continue reading "Barnaby’s Not a Huge Fan of Snow"

It's a dirty job, but you really should do it.  Picking up your pooch's poop is a part of responsible dog ownership. Besides just being considerate towards others, there are some pretty important reasons why you should always pick up after your pet. ...continue reading "Why It’s Important to Pick Up After Your Dog"

We live in a busy city, full of people and pets.  I spend a good amount of time each day walking my own dogs, and every once in awhile during one of our walks we'll happen upon loose pets.  In many cases a concerned owner won't be far behind, chasing after Fluffy or Fido after he/she bolted out of an open door.  Once in awhile we'll find a lost pet with no owner in sight, which always presents us with something of a dilemma. ...continue reading "What To Do if You Find a Lost Pet"

My leopard geckos, in general, are pretty low maintenance pets - especially compared to my high energy dogs!  That doesn't mean, though, that I don't get a lot of enjoyment out of keeping them.  One of my favorite things about keeping reptiles is that I really enjoy setting up their tanks.   ...continue reading "Aurora’s New Tank Setup"

Happy 2016!  I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start.  The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year.  The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch.  We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"

A couple days before Christmas our December Pet Treater box arrived.  I have to be honest, it arrived so close to Christmas that I wasn't really able to take a lot of good pictures of everything we got this month.  Some of the items found their way into pup stockings, one a friend's dog plundered, and a couple of others we saved for Kit's birthday.  Quite appropriately, this month's theme was "Eat Treats and Be Merry". ...continue reading "December 2016 Pet Treater Review & Coupon Codes"

The amazing Mr.Kitsune is our Yuletide puppy.  He was born very early in the morning on December 26th, 2008.  Had he been born a few hours earlier, his birthday would have been on Christmas.  I've always liked that his birthday is the day after, though.  Christmas is fun, but it's always a bit sad when it's over.  Being able to look forward to celebrating Kit's birthday the day after softens the blow of having to wait another 365 days before Santa visits again. ...continue reading "Happy 8th Birthday, Kitsune"
