We’ve got an itchy dog. Our Irie scratches herself and licks her legs. Warm weather months (which, in Texas, means most of the year) are especially difficult for her.

We love traveling with Irie and Tiki. In the summer, we try to take them swimming at least once a week. We love to head to the state parks and the constant level lakes (especially great during our ongoing drought) and let the swim. Of course, swimming dogs means muddy paws and wet dogs upon […]

Just last week, we decided to take the Kurgo Collaps-a-Bowl for a test drive on one of our day trips.

snuggy-boots1

Living in Texas, our dogs don’t have much experience with the most common reason for wearing dog booties: ice and snow. The ice and snow that can cling to your dog’s paw pads (and form painful balls between his toes) cause many dog lovers to turn to booties every winter. The harmful de-icing chemicals used […]

Earlier this week I told you that I’m off to Las Vegas for the annual BlogPaws conference on Wednesday. As much as I’d love to take Irie and Tiki, the drive is three days each way but, most especially, John needs to stay close to home because of health concerns with three of his elderly […]
