Who caught on to our little (for now) secret? We've had a pair of new pets since November 14th! Koopa and Zamboni are cherry head red footed tortoises. My fiance and I have discussed getting this kind of tortoise off and on for a couple of years now, so I wouldn't say we got them on an impulse, but we were originally going to wait until after we move to get anymore pets. I'm pretty sure that was two aquariums and now two tortoises ago. Oops. ...continue reading "Introducing Koopa & Zamboni (Cherry Head Red Footed Tortoises)"
My amazing Mr. Kitsune turned 9 years old on December 26th, 2017!
I meant to get this post out sooner. Better late than never right? Since Kit's birthday is the day after Christmas, things can get a bit hectic around his actual birthday. This year, to top off the craziness of the holiday season, I started off 2018 with the flu. I'm still sick now, unfortunately, but am finally starting to feel better. This afternoon I spent some time going through all my pictures/videos from 2017 so I could back them all up, as well as working on Kit's annual birthday tribute video! ...continue reading "Happy (Belated) 9th Birthday to Kitsune!"
I hope that everyone had a fun and safe new years, and that your 2018 is off to an awesome start. I apologize for my posts being a bit sporadic lately. I had intentions of doing a few more holiday themed posts around Christmas but time got away from me. We also celebrated Kitsune's 9th birthday on the 26th! I'm still working on getting his yearly birthday video done, so it will be at least a few more days, if not longer, before I post his belated birthday video but don't worry, we didn't forget to celebrate with him on the correct day! ...continue reading "Happy 2018!"
Every year, as the winter holidays approach, I tell myself that this is going to be the year that I get all my holiday preparations done early. As awesome as I was at doing things last minute back when I was in college (ha!), it's not so fun to be left wondering whether or not your gifts are going to be delivered on time, or if the holiday cards you worked hard on are going to arrive with enough time left for you to even send them out. So I always tell myself that I'm going to get everything done as early as possible....and it never actually happens. ...continue reading "2017 Holiday Dog Gift Guide"
It's been awhile since our last post! I hope everyone is doing well. I think I mentioned this here before, but my job always gets especially hectic around the winter holiday season. I've been taking on a looot of extra hours which is awesome for my paycheck, but not so awesome when it comes to finding free time to sit down and blog. I also work from my computer. After spending so much time at my computer for work it's been hard for me to find the motivation to spend even more time on the computer to blog. But don't fret, I do have some fun posts planned for this month! ...continue reading "Mischief Making Kitsune"
I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! Today's post is going to be short and sweet. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to wish us a happy "blogiversary" and to suggest names for the "blog Betta"! Over the weekend my fiance and I had a chance to look over all the name submissions for our male black dragon Betta. We ended up each selecting our top 3 names out of all the names that were suggested - now, to finally select our Betta's name, we need you all to vote! ...continue reading "Vote to Name Our Blog Betta"
I apologize for my lack of posts lately. Life sometimes gets a bit hectic, as I'm sure everyone understands. Around this time of the year, thanks to the impending holidays, my "regular" job always has a lot of extra hours available which I've been taking advantage of. On top of that, my fiance came down with a cold last week which he, of course, also decided to share with me. Misery loves company, or so they say. Yesterday, as if working extra hours while being sick all week wasn't enough, Kit wasn't feeling well either. Something was giving him an upset tummy, which unfortunately isn't all that rare for Kit. He's always had a very sensitive stomach. I'm not sure what triggered his latest episode, if maybe he ate something that didn't agree with him or what. ...continue reading "Can Dogs Catch Colds from Humans?"
Here we are, almost at the end of another month! I hope that everyone celebrating Halloween tomorrow has a fun day.
My budget around this time of the year always gets a bit wacky. I only get paid by my job once a month, which means I have just two paychecks left before Christmas! Not only that, but my fiances birthday is in November and Kit's birthday is the day after Christmas. On top of budgeting for the holidays, we had some unexpected expenses the other week when a pipe in our bathroom broke and flooded our apartment. Even with unexpected expenses and setting aside some money for the holidays, you know The Paw Pack still gets spoiled! ...continue reading "October 2017 Pet Favorites"
Tomorrow, October 28th, marks the 7 year anniversary of the day Paw Print Pet Blog was created! How crazy is that? Our first post ever, way back in 2010, was about betta fish. The red/blue/white betta fish pictured in that post was named Courage. I got Courage (the cowardly betta) while I was still in college. When I graduated from college and moved 4 hours away to live with my then boyfriend, Courage came with me. He survived the move despite being quite old by then and enjoyed living with us in our new apartment until 2010, when he peacefully passed away. Courage was not my first betta fish but he was my last...until now! ...continue reading "Celebrating Our 7th Blogiversary – Name the Blog Betta!"
