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
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!!!!

When you hear the pitter patter of little feet, the heavy breathing, the uncontrollable excitement, and then the bursting open of those little gates holding all… Continue reading Time to Pull Out Your Wieners
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. And even then it was a “shaky” performance. Try doing this on your own and the results… Continue reading Does your dog have a heart on?
