I'm writing this post early Sunday morning. My fiance Chris and Kit are snuggled up sleeping. I'd love to still be in bed with them, but our younger dog, Fen, almost always wakes me up early. Even after two years with us, he doesn't seem to understand the differences between weekdays and weekends, nor the idea of sleeping in. I make the most of it. I don't always want to get up early, but I try to enjoy my morning walks with Fen and afterwords I usually get quite a bit done around the house before most people are even up. ...continue reading "Pets Can Be Inconvenient"
Back in July perhaps our strangest pets, our 5 land snails, made their Paw Print debut. We've had them since June, almost 3 full months now, and they've grown an insane amount since we got them. All 5 of them are still alive and well, even Escargot who had a cracked shell and Princess Polka Dot who was the smallest, most fragile of the snail herd. ...continue reading "Where to Get Pet Snails"
Once in awhile people ask me whether or not Kit and Fen get along. It used to happen more often, I suspect because recently I've been posting more pictures of the dogs together. They do get along very well! I've actually been quite happy because it seems that the longer we have Fen, the closer the boys get. ...continue reading "Playful Pups & Bath Day"
Happy happy Monday! I hope that everyone had an awesome weekend. Our pack had a pretty relaxing weekend. We did manage to get the dogs out hiking on Saturday but the rest of the weekend we pretty much bummed around the house. I have a couple of projects I've been working on that I haven't had time for during the work week, so I spent the weekend working on those (more about that in future posts) and catching up on housework. Oh, and I also made our first apple pie of the season which, at our house, is a sure sign that fall is well on it's way. ...continue reading "Sept. 2017 Mini Monthly Dog Box of Awesome Review"
I mentioned waay back in July (and I'm sure other times as well) that Mr. Kitsune suffers from flea allergy dermatitis. When I say suffers, he really suffers. A single flea bite is enough to send him into a frenzy where he'll scratch and bite at himself until he bleeds. He sometimes looses spots of fur, and his skin gets dry and crusty. Yeah, it's not pretty. ...continue reading "How I Clean Pet Laundry"
For our "not so wordless" Wednesday this week I wanted to feature our little Miyuki. It's been over a month now since I've shared new pictures/videos of the geckos. I have to admit that although I love the gecko girls, I don't usually find them to be the most interesting photo subjects. They're beautiful lizards, at least I think so, but they don't do much! ...continue reading "Gecko Meets Dragon"
Hello everyone! I hope your September is off to an awesome start. The weather here started cooling down towards the end of August which the dogs and I have really been enjoying. The gecko girls love the heat of summer but they live in heated tanks so they'll be ok no matter how cold it gets. ...continue reading "The Future of Paw Print"
We're back! Despite having no real motivation to blog here after Barnaby's passing I knew that I wouldn't want to stay away too long. For now I'm going to try to get back to our Monday, Wednesday, Friday post schedule, although I may alter that a bit at some point. We didn't take too long of a break, but I figured I'd start back up with a simple update post. ...continue reading "Pack Update"
Each time we bring a new pet into our lives, we're signing an invisible contract. We agree to care for our new charges, to take them into our homes and make them a part of our families, to always do what's best for them even when what's best isn't cheap, or convenient, or easy. The benefits we receive in return for our doting care are too vast to be put into words. I've yet to read a definition of the word 'love' that I've felt did the feeling any justice. ...continue reading "Honoring Barnaby"
I apologize for posting two Pet Treater reviews this month. For some reason we received our July box late so didn't get the review for it up until the first week of August. Whatever the issue was it seems to be resolved as we got our August box last Friday! ...continue reading "August 2017 Pet Treater Review & Coupon Codes"
