DIY Dog Treats

I love my dogs SO much and I want to give them treats, but I worry about the ingredients in the treats.  As you saw last week on my blog, one of the items on my Summer Bucket List was to make home made dog treats- so I DID IT!  They turned out well….the treats […]

Puppy Picks- Dog Bed Edition

I’m so excited to share my favorite dog beds today!  Bella and Minnie make beautiful models, don’t they?? Let’s start with a BIG dog bed- Bella’s favorite!  It’s a Bessie and Barney bagel bed. As you have probably done, we kept buying cheap dog beds from Costco or Petco, hoping they last for more than […]

Puppy Picks #3

My little sweet girl, Minnie, had her first doggie dental cleaning at the vet a few weeks ago.  Let me tell you, it was quite a process.  The cleaning went well and luckily this was only her first cleaning- not bad for a 6 year old (Yorkies are prone to dental disease.) The process involved […]

Puppy Picks #2- The Tuffy Ultimate Gear Ring

In my first Puppy Pick post, I sure didn’t shy away for my love of the KONG! Well, today I’m sharing another of my favorites! My second Puppy Pick is from the Tuffie Toy Company!  This beauty is called the Ultimate Gear Ring and the pattern is red paws.  When I brought this home, Bella […]

Puppy Picks- The Kong

This week brought some travel!  We ventured to a resort called “Wilderness on the Lake” in Wisconsin Dells, WI.  Getting everyone’s schedule to work was quite a task, but we got the WHOLE family together and spent the whole weekend […]

Meet Minnie Moo!

I’m so excited to share with you today!  I want you to meet a “critter” that came to live with us 6 years ago! This is Minnie! One day I happened to be on the internet and was searching breeders in Wisconsin (we were contemplating getting a second dog).  I immediately fell in love with […]

Doggie Diet

It was a long, cold winter here in Wisconsin.  As a result, these cuties put on a little extra weight. Bella gained 5 pounds and Minnie gained 4 ounces!! Because our lab, Bella, has hip dysplasia, it’s crucial that her weight is under control so she can be as pain free as possible.  The yorkie, […]

Is your dog in pain??

My intention was to post a delicious recipe for white chocolate chip cookies today.  I guess that will have to wait until next Thursday!  I want life to be happy and fun every day, but life isn’t always like that.  That was my day yesterday. Well, Within the last year, our dog, Bella, (yellow lab) […]

Doggie No No’s…Food

Apparently, my dogs are hungry all of the time.  While we eat, they beg, they drool, they whine.  And by the way, aren’t Yorkies supposed to picky and finicky about their food??  It was especially bad over the Holidays. I believe the dogs take advantage of our festive and generous mood and tend to eat […]
