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, […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Enjoys Springtime


Spring can be a notoriously short season in Texas. Often we hop from sweaters to sleeveless shirts with hardly a time to enjoy temperate conditions. This year, however, has been the exception.
