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 […]

Assembling a Kuranda Dog Bed

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! If you’ve ever visited a shelter, you’re no doubt familiar with Kuranda beds. These sturdy beds, with a chew-proof frame and no exposed fabric edges, help keep dogs off the […]

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 […]

Review: Innovet STAT! Syringe

Do you know how to make your dog vomit–and why you may some day need to make him vomit? As with a child, inducing vomiting in your dog is done when your dog ingests something that he really should not have eaten. The list of possible offenders is long: chocolate, macadamia nuts, medications, raisins, chewing […]

Traveling with Wet Dog Food

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own. It’s travel season! After a few months of gray skies and chilly (for us!) temperatures, we’re definitely feeling the urge to hit the road with Irie and Tiki for some spring getaways. We just booked a trip to the beach for us […]
