Fido + Fluffy’s Freebie Friday Heads to the Lake!

Today the mercury hit 90 degrees…and we headed to the lake! This was our first visit of 2017 to one of our favorite state parks: Inks Lake State Park. Irie and Tiki love swimming at the lake–and they’re fascinated with the lake’s population of Canada geese, mallards, and herons. It was nice to step away […]

Fido + Fluffy’s Freebie Friday Prepares for Spring

It’s beginning to look more and more like spring along our dog walking route! The mountain laurel have already started to bloom, along with the redbud trees in the area, so the wildflowers will only be a few weeks behind. Irie and Tiki are definitely ready for spring (although it has been a super mild […]

Fido + Fluffy’s Freebie Friday Starts a Book Revision

Fido + Fluffy’s Freebie Friday Prepares for the Big Game

Will you be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday? We’ll be watching (and wondering what this year’s commercials might bring)…and thinking of the Super Dog Sunday fun we had in years past with All Things Dog Blog and the Event Barkers annual event we shared for several years! Although that big event was benched, you […]

Fido + Fluffy’s Freebie Friday Thinks It’s Spring!

Well, this week’s extra warm weather has spelled some long hikes, wading in the creek and, yes…bath time for the dogs! An 85 degree day meant a yard bath for Irie and Tiki, followed by some great bully sticks (thank you, Bully Bundles!) It’s definitely feeling like spring here…and we’ve even seen a few early […]

Fido + Fluffy’s Freebie Friday Goes for a Swim

As in many parts of the country, there’s a saying in Texas that “if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” This past week has been the perfect example…after several days of never topping the freezing mark, today we’re in the eighties–and Irie and Tiki are ready for a swim in the creek! Whatever […]

Fido + Fluffy’s #FreebieFriday Gets Organized for 2017

Can you believe we’re counting down to the end of 2016? The calendar may not change to 2017 for a few more days…but our office reorganization has already started! Both our offices (which take up the second floor of our home) are in a state of disarray–but I know that it will be so nice […]
