Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone is enjoying a nice day off. I know we sure are! I thought it'd be fitting to post our May PetGiftBox review today because this month's box was Memorial Day themed. Not only were the items Memorial Day themed, but the box also included a pamphlet on America's Vet Dogs, a nonprofit that helps disabled veterans and service members by teaming them up with trained assistance dogs. Each PetGiftBox purchase helps to support the important work done by America's Vet Dogs! ...continue reading May 2015 PetGiftBox Review
I'm going to apologize ahead of time - when I say "pic spam" I mean pic spam! It's been awhile (too long!) since I've spent time trying to get cute new pictures of the bunnies. Between Barnaby normally wanting nothing to do with humans, and Poppet bouncing around like she got into a month's supply of coffee, getting good pictures of my bunny couple is no easy task! Armed with craisins, mostly to bribe Barnaby to come within two feet of me, I set off to attempt to acquire some new bunny pics this past weekend. Out of all the pics I got, these were my favorites... ...continue reading Bunny Pic Spam
Do you allow your pet(s) to sleep in bed with you? Kitsune has a couple of beds of his own throughout our apartment, but usually prefers to sleep in bed with us. The rabbits don't have access to our bedroom, but it's not a rare event when I fall asleep on the couch in their room. Poppet will often jump up on the couch to snuggle with me, and rarely Barnaby will as well. To some people, allowing pets on the bed is taboo. But if you're like me, and enjoy snuggling up with your furry companion at night, you might enjoy the book Cat Naps & Doggie Snorts: The Joy of Sleeping with Critters by Francine Brevetti. ...continue reading Book Review: Cat Naps & Doggie Snorts: The Joy of Sleeping with Critters
Around our neighborhood, I'm best known as "Kitsune's mom". I find it funny that people remember Kit's name, but not my own. It's okay, because I'm honored to be called his mom. Mother's Day was last weekend, and following the holiday I came across this blog post via a fellow pet blogger posting it on her Facebook page. I was especially interested in the comments of the post, and started writing one of my own, but had so much to say that I decided to post about it here instead. ...continue reading Is the Term “Pet Parent” Appropriate?
Another Wednesday already! Can you believe that we're already almost two weeks into May? The weather here has been a bit crazy lately! It's not too bad today, but yesterday got up to 90*f here. I'm worried about how hot this summer is going to get, if it's already getting this hot in May. I'm not really a huge fan of the heat. I think Kitsune and the bunnies agree with me - the cooler weather is more comfortable. My gecko girls have been loving the warm weather though! ...continue reading New Pics of the Gecko Girls
Happy Friday! I hope that everyone has been having an amazing week. The weather here has gotten much warmer, so Kitsune and I have been spending a lot of time outside. Anyone who walks their dog a lot, like I do, knows that picking the right harness is important! Selecting the perfect harness isn't always an easy task - they are not necessarily a "one type fits all" type of product. Factors such as your dogs size, fur type, walking style, personal preferences, and more can all be factors that will impact what type of harness works best for you and your pooch. I recently got to talk harnesses with the awesome people over at Golly Gear. They sell products made especially for small dogs, including a huge selection of harnesses, and did an amazing job helping me select a new harness for my furry best friend. Read on to hear more about my experience, and enter to win a $25 gift certificate to Golly Gear! ...continue reading Golly Gear Small Dog Supply Store Review & Giveaway
Crazies that this is our first "wordless" Wednesday post in over a month! You'd think that I'd have a slew of new pictures to post, since I haven't really posted any for so long. Unfortunately I've been so busy, that I haven't really been going camera crazy lately. But now that the weather here is nicer, Kitsune and I have been going to the park almost every morning. You know what that means - bring on the park pictures! ...continue reading Kitsune’s Serpent
Ah and here you thought the blogging from A to Z Challenge was over! Technically it is, and I've already returned to my regular Monday - Wednesday - Friday blogging schedule again, but I wanted to take some time today reflecting back on the April challenge. I certainly had a lot of fun coming up with posts each day, and hope you all enjoyed reading what I came up with! Although fun, the challenge was also exhausting at times, and I found myself strapped for time on quite a few occasions in April. ...continue reading Reflecting on the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge
Happy Friday! While I'm at it, happy May as well! Is it strange visiting here and not seeing a new post from the A to Z Challenge? After posting almost everyday in April, I was considering taking a few days off. But I was so busy posting challenge posts in April that I got a bit behind on some product reviews I've been working on. Kitsune and I received Pooch Party Packs April dog box in early April, and I'm just getting around to posting about it. ...continue reading April 2015 Pooch Party Packs Review & Coupon Code!
Whew we made it! Today is the last day of the April A to Z blog challenge! Thank you so much to everyone who's visited my blog during the challenge, left comments, or visited us on social media.
I thought it would be fitting, on the last day of the challenge, to post about Zeus. I know I've mentioned him, at least in passing, here before. But Zeus' reign begun and (sadly) ended before I started Paw Print, so I haven't written about him too much here. Zeus was with us for only two years, he passed away in August of 2008. Despite him being gone for over 6 years now, I still think of him sometimes. ...continue reading Zeus (6/13/2006 – 8/8/2008)
