Puppy’s First Year – Month 10

Puppy’s First Year – Month 10 Documenting my puppy Edna’s first year of life.  How is my puppy 10 months old already, that’s just crazy! Does that mean in 2 months when Edna turns one I can no longer call her “my puppy”? That makes me a little sad – I think Edna will always will be referred to as my “puppy” since she is the “baby” of our pet family. How Has My Puppy Changed Since My Last...

Puppy’s First Year – Tailored Nutrition and Feeding

Puppy’s First Year Tailored Nutrition and Feeding  Up until now I have not touched on the subject of my puppy Edna’s nutrition and feeding.

Today more than ever, deciding what to feed our puppies and adult dogs can be an...

I received a Drinkwell Zen Pet Fountain for my honest review and to bring attention to the importance of pet...

Puppy House Training – I’m Not the Potty Whisperer

I’m Not the Puppy Potty Whisperer I Thought I Was   Puppy potting training What does it take to be successful at house training a puppy? A watchful eye? Understanding the signals your puppy gives when it needs to “go”? Taking your puppy out after each meal? Going outside as soon as your pup wakes up? How about after your puppy has finished playing? Or knowing your puppy’s potty schedule? What happens when you do all...

Introducing: Edna the Pug

It’s been over seven years since there has been a puppy in my home. Seven years since I’ve had to puppy proofing my home, seven years of not running behind a puppy that’s circling looking for a spot to potty on my carpet. It’s been seven years of going to bed and sleeping (mostly) throughout the night. Other than the occasionally cat using my furniture as a scratch post, it has been seven years without puppy teething marks on the legs...
