Clothes Your Dog

Winter coats and sweaters and hoodies. I spend more on clothing for my dogs than for me. And you’re thinking I’m out of my mind, but Elmo weighs 6 lbs and Peach and Bronnie are around 13 – 15 lbs. They all have short hair and the frigid temperatures here in California are just too… Continue reading Clothes Your Dog

Mind Your Own Business

It’s fairly easy to write about something you are passionate about, like dogs, adopting them, rescuing them, and about the great people who do this for a living. But, geez, it’s not so easy when you’re trying to write about your own business. So now that I’m minding my own business, I of course have to… Continue reading Mind Your Own Business

Designer Dogs Available

So you don’t want to adopt from a shelter because all they have are Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas, well at least in the San Francisco Bay area. Not! Check out Wagaroo, a site that lists dogs from many shelters in the bay area and even lists dogs for families who can no longer take care of their pet.… Continue reading Designer Dogs Available

Doing the Dishes

Every time I went into the laundry room, he would show up and poke his head in the washer or dryer. I kept hoping he was offering to fold… Continue reading Doing the Dishes

Soggy Dog

It’s finally raining! Something we seriously need here in California. So this morning, I open up the back door to the back yard to let the dogs out and they all took one sniff and looked at me like, “Seriously? You think we’re going out there and getting wet? No way!” So, on with my coat… Continue reading Soggy Dog

What’s New?

What’s new? This site, that’s what. Cold Nose Design is finally here. So, what that might be? I’m a dog lover, pun lover, and designer. Put them together and you have punny dog designs. There are some nice artsy ones too, but I tend to go for the warped, the ones that make you groan.… Continue reading What’s New?

Halloween Dogs

Halloween. My favorite holiday of the year. I can’t say the same for my dogs. Out come the costumes along with the look of horror on their faces. Before you think horrible thoughts, they do get rewarded with many treats! Of course since Elmo is the smallest and received costume presents from his Auntie Cookie,… Continue reading Halloween Dogs

Meet the Fur Balls

Three of them. I never thought I would end up with three dogs. Two was always the perfect number, especially since my first dog, Peach, “adopted” my second dog, Elmo. He just wiggled his way into her heart. And number three, Bronnie, did the same to me. I love dachshunds and this one proved irresistable.… Continue reading Meet the Fur Balls
