Dog Safety On The Go

Pet Safe Fence

As you ALL know, I have two very active border collies.  They are always on the go, and always racing around.  It's part of who they are and what makes them happy.  However, as a dog parent, it's not always easy to let them roam freely, especially when we're traveling.  I always worry they might see a wild animal, or just hear something that scares them, and run for the hills.

My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine

As you all know by now, I just moved.  I have been working to establish new routines and organizational systems in my new home.  While my life is basically the same (two dogs, hubby, and self employed), everything has seemed topsy turvy since the move.  I've been working to maintain structure and feel in control once again.  Here are a few of the things I've recently done to make life go just a ...

Happy Holidays With #PetSmartGrooming

Pet Smart Logo

Most of us head to the salon or the barber before the holidays.  We want to look and feel our best when we visit with friends and family, so we pamper ourselves.  Families head to the mall to pick out matching outfits and even the kids get their hair cut.  So why would you leave out your pets?
