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"
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!"
We've had Fenrir for just a bit over 2 years now! Although we celebrated his 2nd birthday on August 1st, he actually joined our pack on September 27th, 2015. I say stuff like this all the time, but it's crazy to me that two years have passed so quickly. In a way it feels like Fenrir has been a part of our family forever, but in other ways he still very much feels like the new kid on the block. Owning two dogs at once for the first time in my life has been an interesting experience with, if I'm honest, both pros and cons. I'll say up front though that I adore both my little boys and even though they can make life a bit crazy at times, I wouldn't trade them for the world. ...continue reading "Two Years of Having Two Dogs"
The "life" of lamb, or - the slow demise of a dog's favorite toy...
When I set out to start this post I wasn't aware of exactly how long ago the story had begun. Then, while searching for pictures of Fen with his favorite toy "lamb" on my Instagram page, I came across that picture to the left. I originally posted it back in November of 2015, which would make Fen around 3 months old in that picture. It's not the best picture, I admit, but you should be able to make out that fuzzy white toy Fen has with him. That is lamb in his prime. That is Fen's favorite toy. ...continue reading "The “Life” of Lamb"
I'm not sure whether there are really a lot of people interested in pet snails, or if my blog is one of just a few about keeping pet snails, but whatever the reason my snail posts have been getting a lot of views lately. Since you guys seem to want snails, I'll give you snails! ...continue reading "Snail Update 10/4/2017"
How do you properly say goodbye to a friend, a family member, who's been your companion for over a decade? How do you fit over 10 years of life, love, and memories into a single memorial? These are questions I've been struggling with since Barnaby passed away last month. ...continue reading "Barnaby’s Memorial Video"
Happy first day of fall! 🙂 Today's post is going to be a short one. I have a lot to do today, but I wanted to stop by to wish everyone a happy start to autumn and to show off a couple of pictures I took of the boys. ...continue reading "Happy Autumn!"
Today our beautiful leopard gecko Aurora turned 9 years old!
Since we lost Barnaby, Aurora is now officially our oldest pet. Unfortunately there's not really too much you can do to celebrate a little lizard's birthday, especially when the little lizard is already as spoiled as Aurora is. ...continue reading "Happy 9th Hatch Day, Aurora!"
