The Kindness of Strangers

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

National Pet Day

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!

Does your dog have a heart on?

On their face, that is. What a great idea. Let’s try to make our dogs look goofy! Well, easier said than done. My dogs are no idiots. They are not going to “perform” unless there is food involved.

My husband looks at me like I’ve got a third eye growing out of my head whenever I mention these yummy chocolatey… Continue reading Bagels & Cream Cheese
