Did you know that the third week in October is National Vet Tech Week?  I can’t give enough praise for the veterinary techs at our veterinarian office.  They go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to dealing with my dog. Misha’s No Good, Very Bad Emergency Veterinary Hospital Visit Although I did everything right with Misha during her first year as far as veterinarian visits are concerned, things went bad one very long night. My dad…

Saying Goodbye to Summit: A Family Dog

Saying Goodbye to Summit: A Family Dog

Share

At some point, every pet owner must decide when it’s time to say goodbye.  My sister’s dog, Summit, became very ill a week or so ago.  She was diagnosed with acute kidney disease.  When her numbers came down, they brought her home.  They hoped she would recover, but she didn’t.  She never regained her appetite. It was time to make that decision no pet owner wants to make.  They had the vet come to their house.  She died in her…

I went back through my folders to find it and I was surprised to see how much my dog’s physical appearance had changed in 8 years. Let’s take a trip down memory lane… My Dog at 8 Weeks Old This was the day Misha…

Help! My Dog Humps Stuffed Animals!

Share

Let’s talk about something embarrassing. We all know that dogs mount other dogs.  That’s natural. I want to talk about dogs who mount objects. Specifically,  dogs who mount and hump stuffed animals. Oh, what the heck, my dog is the one who does this and I would like to know why. Embarrassing Dog Behavior in Front of Guests I am going to save you the salacious photos. Somehow it doesn’t seem appropriate to capture the moment while entertaining guests. Instead,…

Misha Worries about Pets Lost in Hurricane Harvey

We are just wrapping up Fogust.  That’s foggy + August.  It’s the month that makes us think that summer is over.  Then, wham! We get hit with September.  True to course, we’re heading into a heat wave this week. Even Misha feels it.  When I got out of the shower, I found her laying on my pillow surfer style.   It’s too warm to get under the blankets today. She looks like she has the weight of the world on…
