Remembering Our Cat Linus

We’ve had a very sad weekend here; late Sunday night, we lost our sweet Linus. He was 16 years old. Thankfully until late Friday, he was active and enjoying life but he went downhill very quickly this weekend. Linus loved his furry family members. I’ve got more over on CatTipper about his long, happy life […]

Our New Project

We’ve been busy this week on a new project that’s a little bit different (in many ways) from our usual work. We recently received a call from the publisher of our Day Trips from Austin, Day Trips from San Antonio, and Day Trips from Houston guidebooks asking us to join in a revision of Texas […]

Happy New Year + a Look at 2015’s Accomplishments!

We wanted to wish everyone a very happy new year! We’ve had a quiet New Year’s Day (after a New Year’s Eve with way, way too many fireworks in the area for Irie’s tastes). after a long (chilly!) hike this morning, we’ve been at work on plans for this year for DogTipper, CatTipper and PawZaar. […]

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 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 […]
