Matching Halloween Costumes for Dogs and Kids

Share

Cute Costumes for Kids and Dogs I’ve got a suggestion. Dogs are part of the family, aren’t they? So, why not include them in the Halloween festivities and dress them up for Halloween? Better yet, put your kid and dog in matching costumes! I’ve listed a few costume pairs to get your creative juices flowing. Sure, it’s kind of a wacky idea to dress the family dog and kids up in theme costumes, but then, I’m a little bit wacky to…

Blanket Mishaps

Misha loves vegetables.  So, when she heard me making lunch, she ran out from her under blanket to get her afternoon treat.  In her haste, she dragged the blanket with her. After she got her treat, she went back to bed.  But, her blanket was on the outside and she wanted to get on the inside. She looked around for a human to help her, but no one was in sght.  Well, they were but they weren’t very helpful.  She…

My dog’s favorite time of day besides all those that involve food is taking her walk. I’m happy to say she has recovered from whatever was bugging her earlier this week.  Today, Misha was jumping up and down at the door in that way that only Jack Russell’s can do.  I knew she was ready to get back to our routine.

I am being ignored.  I had the audacity of applying flea medication to my dog.  She’ll letting me know that she is suffering the indignity in silence.  She’s afraid of the flea medication tube which why I am being ignored. I had to put her bed and blanket next to my computer chair so she could do it in comfort. It had to be done.  She has been itching like crazy the last couple of days.  Last night, I finally…

My Dog is Getting Used to People

A funny thing happened on the way to Misha’s 8th birthday. Something I really didn’t even notice. She began to lose her fear of people. My Dog is Afraid of Strangers So, this is how Misha usually greets people… She’s terrified of strangers. When meeting someone new, she would not sniff their shoes like a normal dog. She would bark incessantly. It often took several months of regular meetings before she would let a new person pet her. Case in…
