Maggie is ONE MONTH old! :-)
First of MANY hours of snuggling!
We had the opportunity to visit Maggie this past week and we were so excited to see her up and walking (attempting to any way!) She is slowly but surely figuring out how to use her legs. I can’t believe she is already one month old - time is flying by. It gets so hard to leave the little fur ball...

Hotdogs, hamburgers and corn on the cob…YES PLEASE! That’s what your pet is thinking when you’re cooking out. We would like to remind you that even a small amount of “people food” can be bad for your pet’s stomach….Don’t forget to be mindful of your pet while cooking out.

Here She Is... MISS MAGGIE!!
I'm 3 weeks old!

Meet Maggie!! This past Sunday we picked out our first puppy! I was a little hesitant to pick out our puppy so early (she’s only 2 weeks old) but the other half of me couldn’t wait to hold our very own puppy. It was so hard to not want to scoop them all up and take them home with me. I was so happy to have...

During springtime we all start doing more outside activities, especially with our pets. Accidents happen and the first thing to remember when dealing with any injured animal, whether it’s a family pet or one you found lying on the side of the road is to approach with caution. When an animal is hurt and you approach to help, their response to pain may cause them to bite or scratch and injure their rescuer. If it is your pet, cover his head so he can’t bite you, put pressure on minor wounds, provide support to the injured limb and seek treatment immediately.
