The dog days of summer – hot enough to stifle even the best of us – are about over. Irma brought us a taste of fall that gave us hope! My dogs love to lie in the sun but not when it is coupled with 90 percent humidity. So we are excited at the Chihuahua […]

Our Dog’s Sunday

By on 28 August, 2017 in City Living, Fun, Kate and Stephen, Pets with 1 Comment

We’d been saving newspaper for about six weeks, and it was time to take it to the shelter. Sometimes the stack of newspaper gets large enough that you worry about the perceptions that visitors might have. The shelter always wants newspaper to line the puppy cages with, so we loaded up the dog (because she […]

We all know the adage “God works in mysterious ways”. As a rescue director and animal lover from birth, I see God’s hand in so many situations. Sometimes a pet is the one thing that keeps a person from giving up. Sometimes a pet provides security, and sometimes, a pet is the catalyst for a […]

We love to go to Biscuits games early in the season, when there’s still a touch of cool spring in the air, and every single professional baseball team is within striking distance of first place. The world is full of promise. This year, we didn’t make it to our first Biscuits game until June, but […]

I don’t know about your pets, but mine are thrilled to be able to go outside and soak in this gorgeous weather. As I look in the yard I see tiny sunbathers in little pods. It must feel so good to feel the sunshine after so many rainy cold days! There is new grass to […]

Christmas is upon us, with all its warm fuzzies. We have had our first freeze, first fires in the fireplace, and the baking has started.

It started with a limp in December. The dog came in from a stint of running around the yard and wasn’t putting weight on her left rear foot. We figured she’d gotten a thorn in it, but even after producing a flashlight and poking around while she displayed considerable patience, we weren’t able to play […]

Tis the Season for Allergies!

Spring approaches, peeking around the cold corners of winter. I sense it on these warmer afternoons when the air smells like promise. The dogs are so slap-happy to get some time to lie in the afternoon sun before a chill brings their little bodies back to the warm house. I love spring and all its […]
