Fido’s Freebie Friday Welcomes October!

Happy October!! October and April are my favorite months of year; as the weather changes, there’s always the promise of new adventures in the air. Tomorrow we start work on a new book project, actually a revision of an existing book by another writer called Texas Curiosities about unusual attractions in Texas.  We’re shooting photos […]

Friday’s Freebie Friday Celebrates Fall!

Hooray for fall! Although the temperatures are still in the 90s here, the cooler mornings are making for a great time for dog walking. This past weekend, we took part in the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt event in Austin and had the chance to get in an early morning walk at Mueller Lake Park, […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for #StrutYourMutt

Irie, Tiki and I love to walk. We talk a 45-minute walk every morning and a 30-minute walk every evening. But on Saturday, we’re taking a very special walk as part of Best Friends’ Strut Your Mutt fundraiser in Austin, one of numerous events planned across the country. Please be sure to check out our […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Waits for Rain!

There’s a famous saying in this state that Texas weather is composed of drought interrupted by periods of flood. Well, that quote is correct more often than not. After a record drought, we had record floods…then went right back into drought. The creek you see above that ran so beautifully this spring and early summer […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Welcomes Fall!

OK, we know that technically it’s NOT autumn yet…but we’re ready! Although 100 degree temperatures are still forecast this weekend and early next week, there’s a change in the air. Our morning dog walks are cooler. Our evening dog walks are at least tolerable. The promise of cooler air comes in each front, even though […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for a Big Day!

Friday is a big day for us: it’s Tiki’s 7th adoption anniversary, the 7th anniversary of the launch of DogTipper and the day that we switched from travel guidebook writing to pet writing! It’s hard to believe that seven years have gone by… Watch for a big giveaway tomorrow to celebrate our special day. In […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for Fall!

OK, we’re a long way from the cool temperatures we enjoyed when we took this autumn photo at Guadalupe River State Park last November, but today, for the first day in a long, long time, there’s a hint that summer may be losing its sweaty grip on the region. After 100+ degree temps for weeks, […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Tries to Stay Cool!

Whew, this week has been hot, hot, hot! Although I usually walk the dogs for 45 minutes in the morning and at least 30 minutes in the evening, this week we have been taking an early morning walk…and that’s it. Unlike in the desert, temperatures don’t cool in the evenings here so we have been […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Rests Up After #ATXPetExpo!

Whew, what a busy weekend it was! We spent Friday doing booth setup then we ran our PawZaar booth at the Austin Pet Expo all day Saturday and Sunday. The show was huge (they were estimating 15,000 attendees) and the number of dogs there was incredible. We gave out samples of Solid Gold pet foods […]

We’re excited that this will be our first PawZaar booth, and we can’t wait to display many of our items. (If you can’t make it to the show, […]
