Fido’s Freebie Friday Wraps Up a Staycation


As I mentioned in this week’s post, we’ve been enjoying a staycation with Irie and Tiki this week. We’d planned to go to SuperZoo this week but, after Coco’s hospitalization and multiple car repairs, our plans changed. We decided to take advantage of that time already blocked off on our calendars for a little R&R […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for a Staycation


It’s summer and a time for family vacations…and staycations! Next week, we’d planned to head to Las Vegas for the annual SuperZoo trade show.

Fido’s Freebie Friday Beats the Heat


We’re sorry this week’s Fido’s Freebie Friday is a few hours late; this past week has been one of hot, hot, hot weather. We took a day trip with the dogs to help John’s elderly relatives…then the car air conditioner decided to stop working on the hottest day of the year. (And, in South Texas, […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for July 4th!


The countdown is on for the Fourth of July, a holiday that, for all its fun, is a time that we dread, like many pet parents. Irie is terrified of fireworks noise, and, with this holiday falling on a Friday, I’m afraid that the merriment may extend from Friday night all the way through the […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Counts Down to Summer


The upcoming Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to the summer holiday season…and we’re already seeing a lot of summer-themed giveaways in the works (with more planned here in the coming days).

Fido’s Freebie Friday Unpacks from BlogPaws


As I mentioned earlier this week, I came home from the annual BlogPaws conference with pages of notes, lists of ideas, tons of photos–and plenty of swag. We’ve got giveaways underway right now for a bag of dog swag AND a bag of cat swag but watch for even more giveaways from the conference in […]
