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,...

5000! Thank You!

It all started July 20, 2012 at 2:20pm My very first tweet!   Little did I know what a ride it would be over the next couple of years! I thought maybe I’ll meet a few other dog friends, we could woof with each other once in a while, share common interests; our love of food and toys, discuss how I spend the days with my humom and what it’s like living with 2 cats. In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be writing...

Winter Hazards for Pets

I don’t know about you, but it seems like it was only yesterday that winter was here and we where hiding under the blankets to keep warm, going on potty strikes because it was too cold, or snowy, or windy, or icy. Unfortunately, as much as we would like to skip this nasty winter weather, short of hoping a plane to an exotic destination, winter is coming and we have to deal with it.  Along with the usual weather discomforts come...

When You’re Told “Your Pet is Obese”

A Pug’s Weight Loss Journey This is my view and perspective of a pet parent who’s been told their pet is obese. When You’re Told “Your Pet is Obese” When I was told my pug Edie needed to lose weight I did not disagree. I mean, it was obvious she was heavier than she should be. If looking at her wasn’t an indication my dog was obese, all we had to do was place her on a scale to know the truth –...

Emotional Pug Humom – Update

Well it’s been almost 3 weeks since Edie injured her shoulder. I was beginning to think Edie was getting to used to being pampered, carried up and down stairs,  treated like a pug princess 😉 Can pugs “fake it” just so they can receive continued attention?  I wouldn’t put it passed Edie! Originally our Vet thought after the first full week of complete rest, Edie could resume very short walks, but I started to...
