Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

Honey the golden retriever all grown up.

I’m a sucker for a lovely story about someone creating a “bucket list” for their dying dog. They get me every time. But they also strengthen my determination to enjoy every day I have with Honey. And not wait until it’s too late.

Treat Your Dog Like You’re Married

Pam and Mike on their wedding day.

Now that I’ve been married more years than I was single (goodness, that’s a startling realization), I feel the right to judge the marriage advice columns I see online.

Honey’s birthday is coming up. Normally I wouldn’t do much for it. I’d tell myself that as a dog, the day doesn’t mean much to Honey. But everyone deserves a special day sometimes.

A dog and a cat are friends.

Okay, I don’t really think dogs are better than cats. But cats get less veterinary care, are more likely to be homeless, and are more likely to roam free. Sounds like lots of people do think cats aren’t as good as dogs. I think it’s time for that to stop.

With apologies to my readers who don’t blog and are wondering what they ever did to deserve this, I’m getting naked today. The robe comes off to let me reveal what nearly all pet bloggers hide. So with no more delay, off go the clothes and I show you my… stats.
