It’s National Dog Day: Celebrating Our Family Dogs

Share

It seems I have always had dogs in my life.  We got our first dog when I was about 3 and I have been in love with them ever since.  I’d like to tell you about the dogs in my family for National Dog Day. Our First Dog was Bubbles Bubbles was an accident. A friend’s Poodle mated with the neighbor’s Cocker Spaniel and we got one of the puppies from the litter. She looked more Cocker Spaniel than Poodle. …

Dogs Make Terrible Lumbar Supports

Dogs Make Terrible Lumbar Supports

I was playing around on Pinterest when I came across this pin. It made me laugh. You see, I have a Jack Russell who likes to sit behind me on chairs, too. Sometimes Misha likes to be close to me, really close! She jumps up on my lap. Then, she slides around until she is in lumbar position. She’s pretty comfy. I wish I could say the same. All I get is what’s left of the seat! Is this a…

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…

Little Dogs Need Walks, Too!

Little Dogs Need Walks, Too!

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. It’s just as important for little dogs to get exercise.  A daily walk not only burns off energy and…

Misha Has a Sick Day

Misha Has a Sick Day

Share

Normally, I chose something silly for the BlogPaws BlogHop, but today has not been a good day.  Misha wasn’t feeling well.  It’s no fun when your dog is sick! Misha started out the day just fine.  Then, at 10:30 she threw up.  She seemed fine afterwards.   She was running around like normal.  No problem. But, in the afternoon she got antsy.  She went to bed, she got up, she sat down, she got up again.  Eventually, she settled on this…
