Goodbye to our Dog Joe

I’ve written about our Saint Bernard Joe before – his “almost” brush with fame when he was auditioned for a movie.  Well sadly, we lost him last week.  It’s always sad to lose a pet – a dog or a cat has such a short lifespan compared with ours, and yet they become such an […]

Genius Products – For DOGS

A while back I did a post about Genius Products I’ve found for cats.  Well, my conscience has been bothering me a bit since I also am a dog lover, and there are tons of great products out there for dogs as well.  So, when Nina from Dogs by Nina asked me if she could guest […]

Mom, Can I Have a Puppy?

If there were ever words that could strike fear into the heart of a parent, these are the words “Mom Can I Have a Puppy?”  Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE animals of all kinds.  We’ve always had anywhere from one to numerous pets during our marriage. In fact, it’s not usually the boys […]

Is Pet Insurance a Smart Buy?

As the owner of four cats and a dog, I have paid out my share of vet bills.  Maybe even more than my share.  Last year, our St. Bernard – Joe got out of the yard, got hit by a car, and ended up with a broken leg that cost us about $800. It really […]

Three GENIUS Products for Cats

OK, in my last post about cats, I promised you a couple of products for your own feline friends.  As I mentioned, I have owned a whole passel of kitties, so I have tried just about every product out there and these are the ones that have worked out well for me. If you will […]

How to Choose the RIGHT Cat for You

I consider myself something of an expert on cat ownership. Over the years, I’ve had probably 35 or 40 different cats and due to the amazing variety of personalities that cats can have, I’ve learned a lot and maybe it will help you if you are looking for a kitty to love. I got my […]

Yeti the Adorable Snowman

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post just for fun.  I thought I’d introduce my cat, Yeti.  Isn’t he pretty?  I keep telling him he’s way too pretty to be a boy.   But don’t let all that fluff and those ice blue eyes fool you, he’s a little stinker.     I’ve […]

The Cat-lympics

Naturally with all the Olympic excitement going on around here, our four footed friends decided that they needed to get in on the act. So they came up with their own kitty-cat versions of Olympic events.   This is the synchronized chair-climbing event. Here are Nike and Buster competing in the tandem napping event. Note […]

Nike Sneakers Frankenweenie

This is a repost of an old blog post that was one of my favorites. We were lucky enough to have Nike for several more years after I wrote this, but he is gone now. It’s been a couple of years, but we still miss him terribly and think of him often. This is a […]

Joe, the Almost Movie Star

OK, we got the weirdest call the other day.  Someone wanted to cast our DOG in a local movie.  Apparently, this lady had run into Joe and my husband at the local hardware store and mentioned that she knew someone who supplied animals for movies.  He just thought she was kidding, but apparently he gave […]

Yeti and the Laundry Basket

You see why my laundry doesn’t get folded often enough?  Every time I turn around, there is an adorable kitty named Yeti sleeping on it.   Awww, it’s little kitty naptime. Whadja wake me up for? I was sleeping so nice… Nope, it’s my towel. You can’t have it.  Welcome to my life.  I’m starting […]
