How your pooch can teach you to be a better parent.
Our dog Duke has been so depressed this week. He's a lovable yellow lab who is always willing to run with the kids, chase a ball or go for a long walk by the river. Not this week. He lays on the couch, mopes to his bowl for his breakfast and then returns to the couch.
So, why is this week different? School has started and he is missing our daughter. He misses her so much that he sleeps in her room every night and jumps…Continue

Hello, my Alpacas, chickens, and dogs bring joy to my life and I hope you will feel the same. Updated 1-2 times a week, it is fun, educational, and pictures are updated weekly. Shearing for the Alpacas will happen soon and I hope to have some Alpaca products to post. Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic and as soft as cashmere! Come meet them before they get their 'haircuts'. PS. I won't have an animal that I have to kill to profit from or one that could kill me:) Hope to see you soon at…Continue

How many times do we as parents think, “Man, why couldn’t this child have come with an instruction manual?!” Instead, all too often, we are left playing the parental guessing game with occasional advice from friends and family.
Now, what about when a new dog or pet joins your family? We all know the saying,…Continue

** Just hearing the word "lice" makes my head itch.
** A freight train accompanied by a brass marching band would be quieter than my children.
** Halloween decorations make me happy.
** Sun-baked dog poop is anything but easy to scoop.
** People actually eat fried Kool-aid without being paid to do so. …Continue

For the last few nights, Indigo (our 10 month old Aussie) has been on the nocturnal prowl, barking at anything that moves…sometimes all night. I imagine she is trying to protect her territory from raccoons, possums, coyotes, and skunks.
With the summer drought and winter in the air, these critters…Continue

I've never had anyone reject an apology before. Oh, I've had people accept apologies in pretty non-graceful ways, and I've had folks tell me that yes, I certainly should be apologizing to them. But I've never had anyone simply say nothing and walk away.
I have to say I think that's rather bad form. Because it all started with a dog. My dog, of course, my mutly misbehaving dog.
I'd decided to be brave and take him to the local dog park by myself. Well, okay, I was with my daughter,…

I love lying in the driveway at the end of summer day. The concrete is still warm, yet the air has started to cool. Usually I am alone, reflecting on life, and looking for shapes in the clouds. I often enjoy a glass of wine while I wind down from the chaos of the day.

I’m a warrior, a road warrior. Well, among other things. Really. Just hear me out.
Being a family of six limits our options when it comes to travel. Heck, being a family of six limits us financially in several respects, because as you can guess six times any dollar amount usually equals much more than most people can afford.
Hence, over the last few years this family has become a band of road warriors, trekking it across…Continue

A Warning Sign Isn't Enough.
I started to write a post about dogs. Or, a dog breed in particular. But as I was going along I realized that the only outcome of my post would be a debate, and no matter what anyone tells me will I ever be swayed to believe that this particular breed of dog is safe. Never. Ever. Nuh uh. Here's what provoked my post:
Our little neighborhood paper printed a story about a pit bull that attacked a black Labrador, a leashed Labrador that was on a…

|As animal lovers we must, bien sûr, propose a gift guide for (wo)man’s best friends. For all the unconditional love and comfort that they provide us, we think they deserve their holiday treats too.
Here then are some great finds that Fido and Fluffy are going to love (well, the owners will…

If you’re anything like me, you treat your pet as a member of the family. I have a dog and a cat and they are like my son and daughter, no joke. Which means, when it comes to dressing myself and my husband for
Halloween we certainly can’t leave out the other two members of our
To help you decide how to dress your furry family members for Halloween here are a few costume ideas for dogs.…Continue
