Happy May!  I hope everyone is enjoying the nice spring weather.  The temperatures here have been a bit bipolar lately.  On Saturday we had sunny 80*+f weather and on Sunday it dropped back down to just below 60*f.  Not that I'm complaining!  Saturday's hotter weather came complete with a nice cool breeze and, since I'm more of a fan of cooler weather, I was happy about Sunday's cool down.  Except for when it rains, the windows in our apartment have been open pretty much 24/7 for the past week or so.  I'm trying to enjoy as much window time as possible, as I'm sure it won't be long now before it gets hot enough to put our ACs in. ...continue reading "Of Dogs and Open Windows"

I've mentioned at least a few times now that, since the weather here has been getting nicer, I've been spending a lot more time playing with the boys at the park.  One day in particular last week I walked Kit to the beach, via a path that was bordered by lots of fresh green grass, and all Kit wanted to do was graze!  ...continue reading "Why Do Dogs Eat Grass?"

The Paw Pack and I were extremely honored to have recently been named one of the top 100 pet websites/blogs for pet lovers by Feedspot.  In case you want to look for us, we're currently listed at number 58.  The top 100 are indexed based on search and social media metrics, so that number is subject to change.  If you have some free time stop by Feedspot's site.  Fans of our site are bound to enjoy some of the other awesome pet sites featured on the list! ...continue reading "Paw Print Named One of the Top 100 Pet Websites (& Dog Pic Spam)"

I'm using the term "leprechaun" to mean dogs dressed up in St. Patrick's Day bandanas.  Actually, if you want to get technical, Kit is wearing a St. Patrick's Day bandana and Fen is wearing a Christmas bandana.  Dog sized St. Patrick's Day attire was in short supply here, so a green Christmas bandana will have to do.  Luckily Fen can't read, so he doesn't mind the slight. ...continue reading "Leprechaun Invasion"

I had another post planned for today (our March Pooch Perks review) but then remembered that today is a very special day!  Today is the 8 year anniversary of the day that Chris and I brought Kitsune home.

We know Kitsune's birthday, it's December 26th, so normally celebrate his birthday rather than the day we brought him home.  But not doing much to celebrate doesn't mean that today isn't a really special day for me.  My life changed 8 years ago today. ...continue reading "Celebrating 8 Years of Kitsune"

Happy happy March!

It feels like it wasn't long ago at all that we were celebrating the winter holidays, and now we're already two months into the new year.  Crazies.

This is my first post from my new computer!  It took me a few days to get it set up so that I could start using it for work and to blog.  After using an old hand me down desktop computer for 8 (!) years it's pretty awesome to have something a bit more up to date. ...continue reading "Happy March!"

Happy Wednesday!

This week's posts will likely be the last ones uploaded via my old desktop computer.  I've needed a new computer for awhile now, especially since I work so much on my computer.  For anyone who doesn't know already, I work from home.  My computer has been crashing a lot.  It's something I might have been able to fix by reformatting it, but I've been really wanting a laptop for awhile now.  My birthday is coming up in March, so for an early birthday present Chris bought me a new laptop! ...continue reading "New Computer"

I feel like lately I may be giving the false impression that Kit has turned into a lazy old man.  He turned 8 last month, and I know that recently I've mentioned his arthritis.  That coupled with the fact that a majority of the pictures I've posted of him lately are just of him laying down relaxing, I can see why people might assume that he's left his hyper, playful days behind him.  ...continue reading "Kit’s Still Got It"
