Fido’s Freebie Friday Prepares for the 4th


Well, it’s that time of year that I know that we — and many of our fellow dog lovers — dread: fireworks season. Although this year’s crazy rains means we don’t have the wildfire worries that we have in past years on July 4th, one thing remains the same: Irie hates fireworks. I know we’ll […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Celebrates Summer!


Hooray for summer! After weeks (and weeks) of rain, the sun has come out and, at the same time the calendar said it was summer, it actually FELT like summer here! We took some time this week to recheck some of our guidebook listings after the floods — and to enjoy a little lake swimming […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday is Ready for Sunshine!


OK, I can’t believe — after YEARS of drought — that I am saying this, but we are ready for the rains to end and the sun to come out here. Much of this week was spent in preparation for the arrival of Tropical Storm Bill (just weeks after the Memorial Day floods), which veered […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Catches Our Breath


After a week of emergency vet visits, a week of floods, and a quick trip to BlogPaws, we have been catching our breath this week. Little Lucky is doing great, I’m so happy to say, and his sutures will be removed on Friday. He has done so well with his soft cone and is even […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Goes to BlogPaws

Breaking all previous records for May rainfall in our part of the state, the long, long drought has been […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Heads to the Vet


Things have been a little quiet here on DogTipper this week; we have been spending much of our time at the vet’s office with our 18-month-old cat Lucky. What we began as, we thought, a fairly common UTI about 10 days ago has become a diagnosis of both bladder and kidney stones. Right now, surgery […]

Fido’s Freebie Friday Says Where Did the Week GO?


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, […]
