My fur kids and I wish you all Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah and more. It took a lot of wrangling of my husband to get this picture of my three fur kids (Elmo, Peach and LeBron). He’s not as well trained as they are! I would love to see your holiday photos of… Continue reading Happy Holidays!
The holidays are here and everyone is out there shopping their brains out. It’s my favorite time to avoid the malls. People get crazy, they get aggressive and they’ll run you over if you’re not careful. I would much rather do my shopping either at the small local places with unique items or online away… Continue reading Wiener Winter Wonderland
I’ll admit it. I WAS afraid of Pit Bulls. Before I got involved in animal welfare, I was scared to death by Pit Bulls. All I ever heard in the news was the “horrifying facts” that these dogs are killers. Sensationalism and ratings boost. That’s the truth! Nobody talks about the fact that more people… Continue reading The Truth about Pit Bulls
The weather is getting cooler here already. Well, last week the temperatures were close to 100. Now we’re looking at 60s and 70s. For those of us here in Northern California, that’s Fall weather. Time to bring out the halloween goodies, starting with a photo of my three musketeers in their costumes. Elmo was not… Continue reading Almost Halloween Time
It’s been too long since I last posted. We traveled to the South Pacific to spend two weeks in the Society Islands: Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Raiatea, and Tahaa. GEORGEOUS!!!! The warmth and friendliness of the people matches the beauty of their surroundings. It truly is a paradise. Our biggest challenge came with packing. When… Continue reading Back from Hiding
This really made me smile. I saw this dog sitting in a pick up truck with the owner at a gas station outside of Whittier Alaska. I smiled and waved at the dog and the lady turned the truck off, got out, and brought her dog over to meet me. She was so happy to… Continue reading The Kindness of Strangers
The engines are revved, the tails are wagging, and those long little doggies are ready to bolt. Yes! It wiener racing season! Those little sausage dogs just can’t wait to run the course and get their big mouths on those glorious treats at the other end. This year will be the first time we… Continue reading Wiener Racing Season is Here
Crazy?!?! No. The water temperature was about 50 degrees and we were lucky enough to go on a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the mid 70s. First off, putting on that 7 mm wetsuit was a workout. If you didn’t work up a sweat doing that, then you’re pretty unusual. By the time we… Continue reading Snorkeling in Alaska
Yes, you read that right. My dachshund t-shirt (Dock Sunned) has been taking lessons from the Travelocity gnome. The shirt took it’s first vacation in Belize and got to meet some jellyfish and other critters up close and personal. And then it made several trips to the Big Island of Hawaii. The adventure… Continue reading Dachshund goes snorkeling in Alaska
Happy National Pet Day! As you can see, my three have decided that it’s the perfect day to stay in bed. That is, until they figure out it’s food time!
