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"
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!"
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"
The other week I was walking Fen and something happened that made me sad, but at the same time totally reaffirmed my commitment to train my dog with positive based methods. I (so far) haven't written about this in depth, but both of my dogs, to one degree or another, are leash reactive. Kit walked awesomely on a leash until he was unfortunately attacked by a loose dog while I was walking him. After that he became reactive towards other dogs, mainly to large (strangely enough) brown dogs similar to the one who attacked him. ...continue reading "The Power of Positivity"
Yesterday, August 1st, we celebrated little Fen's 2nd birthday! Aw they sure do grow up fast.
It was a sweltering 90*f with high humidity so our planned trip to the park was out, but I think Fenrir had a fun day nonetheless. He spent most of the day playing and snuggling with his big brother Kit. Later in the day, once it started to cool off a bit, I made homemade pizza and the dogs had pupcake and doggy ice cream. ...continue reading "Happy 2nd Birthday Fenrir!"
Usually when we get items in our pet subscription boxes, we briefly tell you all about the individual items in our box reviews but never go into much detail. This week I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at one of the items we received in our July Pooch Perks box. When we wrote our Pooch Perks review we showed you the Pet Cakes frozen treat, but because we hadn't actually made the treat we couldn't really review it. Last week we had a couple of really hot days which I figured would be perfect for letting the dogs try a frozen treat. ...continue reading "Pet Cakes Frozen Treats for Dogs Review"
How time flies - on August 1st our little Fenrir will be turning 2! So if his birthday is still over two weeks away, why am I posting about it now? Because Fen wants you to help us celebrate! ...continue reading "Fenrir’s 2nd Birthday Bash Giveaway!"
