Has Your Dog Ever Had a Justin Bieber Meltdown?

Adolescence Brings Out The Worst Although I hate celebrity gossip, I can’t avoid news about the latest Miley Cyprus scandal or Justin Bieber meltdown. It gets me thinking about the dumb things I did around the same age. Like the time I raced my friend eight miles to a bowling alley. He drove a Pontiac Firebird […]

The Daily Dog Blog – Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange

Type a line. Stop to detach the puppy from your pants leg. Post a photo. Pick up the whining puppy for a quick potty break. Answer an email. Look for the puppy who is suspiciously quiet. That’s what daily life looks like for Julie. And yet she occasionally finds a moment to share her love […]

I Hate Puppies!

Who can resist a puppy? They’re cute. You can pick them up. Their feet smell like corn chips. You’d have to be crazy to hate puppies. Okay, I don’t really hate puppies. I’m not insane.

What's in a Name?

When we’re out and about, people ask me my puppy’s name. I reply, “Honey,” and they nearly always reply with a smile and say “Oh, of course.” Everyone seems to think it fits. Before we knew which puppy from the litter would be ours, we brainstormed names: “Sugar”, “Lyric”, “Muffin”, along with 20 others. I […]

Love the Pup You're With – part 2

Every moment I had with Agatha, Christie, and Shadow was a blessing (even if I didn’t realize it when they were chewing my couch, eating my cookbooks, howling when I left the house, or lunging at every dog within 100 feet). So much so, that I wanted to spend more time with dogs and spend […]
