Millions of homeless pets are euthanized in animal shelters each year. One sure way to make sure that your beloved pets do not contribute to this tragic number is to get them spayed or neutered. However, depending on where you live and what type of pet you have the surgery to have your pet fixed can be quite expensive.  Luckily, there are a number of different programs that offer lower cost spaying or neutering services. ...continue reading "Low Cost Spay and Neuter Programs"

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!"

I'm alive - Well, for the most part.  Around the end of the week last week I started feeling really run down.  It had been a pretty busy week, so I originally thought that maybe I had just overdone things a bit.  I figured, since the weekend was coming, that I'd have plenty of time to relax and unwind after my busy week. ...continue reading "Of Pets and the Flu"

Happy 2016!  I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year's eve, and that your 2017 is off to an awesome start.  The pack and I had a rather mellow new year's eve this year.  The dogs' dad and I stayed home and spent a majority of our night snuggled up with the dogs on the couch.  We made it past midnight without falling asleep, at least, although I can't say the same for Kit and Fen. ...continue reading "2016: Our Year in Review"

How crazy is it that we are already a week into October?  With Halloween at the end of this month, and then the approaching winter holidays, many pet owners will be stocking up on treats for their pets.  Treats can make great holiday gifts for almost any type of pet, and can be a great way to reward your best friend without spending too much money.  I know my pets, especially the dogs, will be getting lots of treats for the holidays - they certainly don't need any more toys!  But not all treats are created equal. It's important to pick out treats that your pets enjoy, but also ones that are healthy and safe. ...continue reading "Picking Out Pet Treats"
