No Excuses – No Hot Pets

There’s nothing I like better than going for a car ride with my humans, the adventure, the anticipation of where we will end up, maybe a park, possibly the pet store for a new toy. A car ride with your dog can be great fun, as long as you’re in the car together. Why together? Well, what fun is it for a dog to go for a car ride and sit alone while your humans run into a store, or stop in to see someone, even if it is...

Lumps, Bumps and Cysts in Dogs – When the Vet says “Oh”

Lumps, Bumps and Cysts in Dogs A few days before Edie’s annual check up I noticed a cyst-like bump on her face. There it was, hidden under her face fold, just above her nose. As much as I keep an eye on her face folds and wipe them on a daily basis, they occasionally get sore and I need to treat with cream, but this time it was different. It was not the usual sore skin, but a red bump. She did not seem bothered by it, it did not...

How To Outsmart A Cat – in 5 Steps

In a previous post I wrote about the challenges of having 2 cats and their differences. The biggest challenge to date has been with our cat Lloyd. Lloyd loves food! Lloyd would do anything for food! I believe when Lloyd is eating, he is thinking about when and where his next meal will be. Because of Lloyd’s obsession with food, his need to loose weight, his obsession with Lily’s food, a food that makes him sick,...

In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be writing...
