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 […]

Never in a million years…

When I was a senior in high school, my plans were to go to college and become a teacher.  After four years at a reputable teacher’s college, I received my diploma and started teaching.  Years later, after getting married and having a baby, I decided to become a stay at home Mom.  Four kids later, […]

Feathery Critters on the Hill

We live in the country, but just 3 minutes from an interstate…it’s perfect combination for us!  One of the perks of living in the country is seeing all of the wildlife!  We are especially fond of our feathered friends that visit our simple bird feeders in front of our house.  Sparrows, mourning doves, gold/purple finches, […]

Baby, it’s cold outside!

It was 72 degrees yesterday….I pulled out my summer shoes for the last time and even wore a pair of capris (I know, I know, I’m breaking all of the fashion rules.)  Today, it’s COLD– 37 degrees to be exact!  Minnie needs to bundle up!!

One of my favorite doggie products…The Furminator

Happy 5th Birthday, Bella!!

We are celebrating today!!!  Bella turns “5”!!  We adopted her from the Humane Society….she had such a cute face!  We couldn’t resist her!  Here’s a photo of when she was in the cage at the humane society…..can you believe someone gave her up??? We were so lucky to find her!  Before we could take her […]

Beautiful Birds

It’s Wintertime here in Wisconsin and we’re beginning to have snow now!!  Finally!!  Because the snow has covered the ground and food is limited, the birds in the area have flocked to our bird feeders.  I tease my hubby that he has the best bird buffet around…it’s the Ponderosa of bird feeders!! We offer one […]
