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"
I said it already but I'll say it again - my poor, beloved Kitsune is having a bit of a rough summer. Luckily we seem to have gotten a handle on his seasonal allergies, they were worse this year than I think they've ever been before. In late July he somehow managed to break his tail, which is why he's been sporting much shorter tail hair than what everyone is used to seeing. Last week I took him to the beach and we had an awesome time together, but what I didn't share when I posted about our trip was that poor Kit got bitten by a snake! ...continue reading "What To Do If Your Dog Is Bitten By A Snake"
My beloved Kitsune has been having a bit of a rough summer this year. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how he's been dealing with a lot of allergy issues. Kit's always had allergies ever since he was a tiny pup, but his environmental allergies this summer have been particularly bad. Near the end of June/beginning of July he developed quite a few hot spots that have luckily since healed. We've been working with a holistic vet to get Kit's allergies under control and I've been optimistic that his current treatments seem to really be helping. However, when it rains it pours and unfortunately Kit has recently had to deal with another health issue. ...continue reading "What Happened to Kit’s Tail"
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"
Warning: This post contains images of Kitsune's hot spots. If images of dog wounds/blood bother you you should skip this post.
Anyone who's been a Paw Print reader for any length of time, especially recently, probably already knows that I'm not a huge fan of the hot weather. Personally I'd rather be cold than hot, and my pets, for the most part, seem to tolerate the colder weather better than the heat as well. While I've written recently about how we're not crazy about the heat, I don't think I've ever written in depth about the true bane of our summers - Kitsune's summer time itchies and his resulting hot spots. ...continue reading "Kitsune’s Summer Time Itchies (Dealing with Allergies and Hot Spots in Dogs)"
