Our Christmas Fun – and a Free Gift for PawZaar Shoppers!

We hope everyone’s enjoyed a wonderful day with their families! We celebrated Christmas with our furry family members including (always Irie and Tiki’s favorite) bully sticks beneath the tree! Today was unusually warm, even for Texas, so we enjoyed a nice, long hike and a picnic lunch… …then, this evening, we packed up to drive […]

Happy Holidays on Fido’s Freebie Friday!

As we step away from the computers today, we wanted to wish everyone a very happy holiday. Temperatures are unseasonably warm here this week so we’re planning to walk off that big Christmas Day meal with a nice, long hike with Tiki and Irie. We’ll be back online on Saturday with some new giveaways but, […]

Happy Thanksgiving – And Don’t Forget Our #PawFriday Party!

We hope all our U.S. friends have had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! We got in a nice hike with Irie and Tiki (the leaves are now beautiful thanks to this week’s first freeze) then we got to work putting together the finishing touches on Friday’s #PawFriday Twitter party! We hope to see you on Twitter […]

Happy Halloween!

We hope everyone enjoys a safe and fun Halloween tonight! After months of drought, this has been a week of rain, rain, rain here (11 inches last weekend and 6 inches yesterday)–and so we took no new costume photos! We are looking forward to a quiet, lazy evening at home (no trick or treaters out […]

How Much Would You Miss If You Weren’t Dog Walking?

I walk Irie and Tiki twice a day, in the morning and evening. At night, we also go out for one last potty run. During this time of year when the evenings have finally cooled off to a pleasant temperature, we all spend a little extra time in the moonlight enjoying the fall air. This […]

Our Fun Day at #StrutYourMutt Austin!

Today we enjoyed a super fun outing in Austin! With Irie and Tiki, we headed to Austin for the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt dog walk and fundraiser. As I told you about in a post earlier this week, I’m proud to be an ambassador for this great organization (and Irie and Tiki are very […]

Our Squirrely Week

I have to take a break from our usual dog posting to share a rescue story of a different variety. The other day, we were unloading the dogs from the Jeep when suddenly Tiki bolted to the end of her leash. (Thank goodness Tiki was on leash or this story would have had a much […]

DogTipper + Tiki Celebrate a Birthday!

Today we celebrated a big day: Tiki’s seventh adoption anniversary AND the seventh anniversary of the launch of DogTipper (and our anniversary of our switch from travel guidebook writing to pet writing!) It’s truly hard to believe that time has gone by so quickly. We took off for a day of family fun today, heading […]

Irie’s One Year Anniversary After ACL Injury

This has been a busy week with the deadline for resolving all the copyeditor queries on our Day Trips from Austin revision. The days got away from me…then suddenly I looked at the calendar and realized that tomorrow will be one year since Irie tore her ACL. We went to the vet the day of […]

Aug. 16: The Week Ahead

Well, I’d planned to report to you today about how much office reorganization I had achieved this weekend. A wasp had different plans for me, though. A sting by a red wasp on Saturday meant swelling all day Saturday. Irie did her best to help out (or did she just want the ice on my […]
