Fido’s Freebie Friday Slows Down for the Holidays


We’re counting down to the holidays now although, in some ways, we are already feeling the quieter days now. As we wrapped up a busy year of Event Barkers Twitter parties, our schedule freed up some time recently, time that we’ve happily been spending on day trips with Irie and Tiki. This week we headed […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Gets in the Holiday Spirit


As I write this, we’re making plans to bring in our Christmas tree…at least for a trial run. Every year, we have an artificial Christmas tree (I’m allergic to the real thing). Through the years, we’ve had many pets in our home and, except for a couple of holidays with younger cats when we had […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Gets Ready for #FueltheHolidays Twitter Party!


Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you’re enjoying a day of fun, family, friendship, and food this Thursday. We’re going to be enjoying a long hike with Irie and Tiki this morning, preparation of a big Thanksgiving meal, a little work (the joys of self-employment!), and no doubt some Thanksgiving football. On Friday, we’ll be taking co-hosting […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Gets Ready to #FueltheHolidays


After a long cold spell here in Texas (not cold by many standards but cold for here!), we decided to take off a day between fronts and enjoy a day trip with Irie and Tiki. We’ve been wanting to take in some fall color so this week we headed to Guadalupe River State Park, lined […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Stays Warm!


Brr…we have gone from sleeveless to sweaters literally overnight here in Texas! We’d planned to travel to Lost Maples State Park with Irie and Tiki this week and enjoy some fall foliage…but Mother Nature had other plans. Highs of 40 degrees, a bitterly cold wind, and worries about our well’s pump freezing overnight have kept […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for #AboundPet


The countdown is on for Sunday night’s #AboundPet Twitter party from 8-9pm ET! We’re so excited about the $750+ in ABOUND pet food and treats we’ll be handing out that night along with our co-hosts, To Dog with Love and All Things Dog Blog. Irie and Tiki reviewed the treats this week while To Dog […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for #AboundPet


This week, we’ve been making preparations for the next Event Barkers Twitter Party, #AboundPet, from a vacation cottage on the Texas coast! Our summer vacation, which was rescheduled after Irie’s ACL surgery, has finally been taking place. We’ve been getting in lots and lots of long dog walks on the sand, enjoying al fresco dining […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Celebrates Fall


It’s finally starting to feel like fall here! We’ve dropped from the mid-90s to the mid-80s but at least it’s cool in the mornings and really feels crisp. Irie and Tiki are enjoying their cool morning walks. This week, we took Irie and Tiki to enjoy a day of dog-friendly fun at Elgin Christmas Tree […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Has a Change of Plans


Well, as so often happens, the best laid plans of mice and men–or, in this case, of dogs and bloggers–have gone awry this week. This week’s plan was to head to Knoxville for the PetSafe Blogger Summit to tour the PetSafe offices and even visit the University of Tennessee Veterinary School. Next week, I was […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Gets Ready for #MyHappyDog


This week we’re making plans for our upcoming #MyHappyDog Twitter party for Look Who’s Happy™ dog treats! I have to say we have some happy dogs here; not only are they treat testing this week (their favorite job) but Irie is also getting to enjoy some mini day trips! Since her ACL surgery, she has […]
