Probably something that most of my Paw Print readers don't know about me, is that I'm a huge dragon fan (yes, I have interests outside of my pets).  As much as I may wish that the dragons of my fantasy novels were real, that unfortunately doesn't appear to be the case.  However, my love for dragons led me to discover another passion of mine - the joy of keeping reptiles as pets. ...continue reading An Introduction to #ReptileCare

Happy Friday!  I totally had another blog post planned for today, but have had such a stressful week that I never got around to writing it.  Instead I'm going to write a quick update on Poppet's health.  Anyone who follows me on social media might have seen me posting about her being sick on Wednesday. ...continue reading Poppet’s Battle with GI Stasis

I feel a bit guilty!  Miyuki turned 4 years old on June 14th and I completely forgot about her birthday until last night.  I guess there's really no harm done.  Being a gecko, she's blissfully ignorant to dates, and isn't much for celebrating holidays. ...continue reading Happy (Belated) Birthday to Miyuki!

Who new Schnauzers had such a propensity towards seafood?  The other week I posted about the 5th book in The Chow Network book series, Kung Pao for Pekinese,and this past weekend I had some free time to sit down and read the 6th installment, Seafood for Schnauzers. ...continue reading Book Review: Seafood for Schnauzers

20150613_113512We got sooo much mail last Saturday.  We were waiting for a few packages, mostly stuff we ordered on Amazon, and then on top of them getting here Kitsune got his June Pet Gift Box!  Perfect timing - Kit had something fun and new to keep him occupied while us humans got some home improvement projects done.  Take a look at the video at the bottom of this post and you can see just how excited Kitsune gets when his boxes get here! ...continue reading June 2015 Pet Gift Box Review

5050The other day I decided to have some arts and crafts time with Miyuki.  Yes, with my Leopard gecko!  A bit strange, I know.  But I've been meaning, for quite awhile now, to take prints of Miyuki's and Aurora's paws.  Back in 2013 I took prints of Haku's paws, and I've really treasured them since he passed away last September.  I thought it'd be nice to have prints from my gecko girls too. ...continue reading (More) Leopard Gecko Paw Prints

This post may end up being a bit of a rant.  I'm know I'm preaching to the choir here, considering my readers are animal lovers, but this is something that's been bugging me this week.  I don't understand why some people feel it's okay to (or attempt to) pick up unfamiliar dogs without at least asking the dog's owner first! ...continue reading Always Ask Before Picking Up Small Dogs

Kitsune loves peanut butter.  I give it to him once in awhile as a kong stuffer, and one of his favorite treats are my homemade peanut butter cookies.  In most cases, peanut butter is safe to feed dogs in moderation.  However, a new brand of peanut butter includes the deadly (to dogs) ingredient xylitol.  I wrote about the dangers of xylitol back in April.  It's a sugar substitute that is commonly found in sugarless gum, candy, toothpaste, and many other 'sugarless' products.  It's safe for humans, but even in small amounts can be very dangerous to dogs. ...continue reading Dog Owners Beware – New Peanut Butter Brand Contains Deadly Xylitol

WordlessImagewwwwFor awhile now I've been toying with the idea of getting a tattoo of one of Kitsune's paws.  <-- That one in the picture, because I just think it's too adorable that he has a single pink toe.  When he was a puppy his paws were mostly pink.  Over time they changed to being almost entirely black, all except for a few tiny spots and of course his one pink toe - his "lucky pinky".  It's on his right back paw, and if I do decide to get a tattoo of it, it will be on my right paw foot. ...continue reading Kitsune’s Paws & Tattoo Ideas

Hello!  I hope everyone had an amazing weekend, and not too much trouble falling back into the weekly routine this morning.  I've been slacking a bit posting about The Chow Network book series.  The last time I posted about them was back in March, and I've gotten three more books from the series since then!  Since I'm a bit slow, you can always keep up with the Real Dogs Cook gang by visiting their website, and their books are available on Amazon! ...continue reading Book Review: Kung Pao for Pekingese
