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 […]

We like to think that we live a pretty green lifestyle. Surrounded by a nature preserve for endangered birds, we’re really conscious of our impact on the environment. A creek flows through our property so we’re very aware of any runoff and use only natural lawn products. We drink well water filtered only by 400 […]

With six pets in our house, we are no strangers to shedding problems. Although we don’t have a particularly cold winter season here, compared to so many locations, our pets grow a winter coat anyway–and blow that coat as the weather warms up.
