Fido’s Freebie Friday Heads to the Vet


Things have been a little quiet here on DogTipper this week; we have been spending much of our time at the vet’s office with our 18-month-old cat Lucky. What we began as, we thought, a fairly common UTI about 10 days ago has become a diagnosis of both bladder and kidney stones. Right now, surgery […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Says Where Did the Week GO?


This is one of those weeks where I find myself thinking, “Wow, it’s Thursday again? Didn’t I just do the Fido’s Freebie Friday blog hop?” I’m not sure where the week went but it has been a blur of vet visits (Irie got a great report, our cat Lucky has some dental problems…), rain, deadlines, […]

#MayThe4thBeWithYou Star Wars Giveaway!


Yes, I know this is dating me but was just crazy about the Star Wars movies when they were first released. I guess the love of the movie franchise must have continued into my adult years because one of our previous dogs — sweet Yoda — was named after a favorite movie character. To celebrate […]

Win a Sterling Silver Dog Pendant!


I love sterling silver; when I put on a silver ring, bracelet or necklace, I tend to leave it all the time. The silver from Taxco, Mexico is a special favorite of mine. The metalsmiths of Taxco work in many different metals, but none so beautiful as sterling silver. The .925 silver for which Mexico […]

After years (five?) of record drought, this spring has been wetter and cooler than usual. We’ve been able to enjoy hiking with Irie […]
