Review: Yogapet Memory Foam Pet Bed

In cold weather, certain moves leave my knee feeling out of sorts, the result of a cracked kneecap years ago, after a fall on the floor of the Bangkok police station (following the sinking of our boat and the loss of our passports. Not the best of travel memories…) That aching knee means that I’m […]

Review: Brentwood Home Pet Bed

About a year ago, we began to notice a limp in Tiki’s step, especially when she jumped off her favorite chair. It wasn’t bad, and we’ve been able to control it with chondroitin and glucosamine supplements every day, but it is a sign of the arthritis that she now has in her front legs. Her […]

Trick or Treat Fun on the Beach!

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own. This week, we headed to Port Aransas with Irie and Tiki to squeeze in one more beach visit before the weather turns cold. We love going the week before Halloween when decorations are up and the girls can “dress up” in their […]

Our Grain-Free Journey–for Ourselves AND Our Dogs

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own. John and I have been on a low carb diet for many years, working hard to avoid grains as much as possible in our meals. We feel better, our clothes fit better, and I think we have more energy when we stay […]

We received a Kuranda bed for review. As always, all opinions are strictly our own and we only share products that feel you will enjoy!

Review: PurOtic Natural Deep Ear Cleaner and Natural Ear Dryer

Let’s talk about ears. In our house, Irie has the troubled ears. We’ve made two special trips to the vet’s office the last few years with ear issues. Her hound ears (she’s part coonhound, according to her DNA test) mean her ears are covered and stay moist, a setup for ear infections. Pair that moist […]

Remember that time you were frantically searching for your dog’s up-to-date vaccination records? “If only there was an easy way to keep track of pet health records,” you muttered under your breath, forgetting all about it until – Voila! – […]

Teeth Cleaning with Purbreath® No Brush Oral Care

Both Irie and Tiki have had dental problems in the past, ones that resulted in both cleanings and extractions. For the first few years of their lives, we relied on raw marrow bones to clean their teeth naturally; unfortunately these power chewers liked the marrow bones TOO much, resulting in splintered teeth–and, now, vacant gaps […]
