Can dogs eat carrots?
Yes, they can! My dogs love carrots. I actually chop up raw carrots and put them in my dogs kibble to make it more intriguing for them. It works!

Why I Spayed My Dog

As an owner of a few rescued dogs, most of my dogs already came spayed or neutered. But since Daisy was a little puppy when I adopted her, it was up to me to get her spayed. I didn’t get it done right when she could of been spayed (laziness) but I finally had the vet do the surgery two days ago. There are pros and cons of getting your dog fixed but in the end I decided it was the best thing to do. Here are some of the reasons why I decided it was best to spay Daisy.

Full Moon Chicken Bacon Dog Treats Review

full moon chicken bacon dog treats review

It’s important to get dog treats that are good for your dog as well as safe. These days you always hear about treats that are causing dogs to get sick or even killing dogs. You always have to be aware of what you are feeding your dog to avoid illness.

I came across Full Moon for the first time awhile back on one of the product deal websites I follow because I love paying less for products. They had these Full Moon chicken bacon dog treats half off and did some research on them before purchasing. After I read reviews about what other people thought, I decided to get them for my dogs. They were half off, so how could I say no?

These dog treats are made in the USA and use all natural ingredients. There is no corn, wheat or soy in them. I enjoy using these for basic training or tricks for my dogs because they have a strong smell. They are also easy to break apart if you want to give your dog a smaller piece. I break mine into piece because my dogs aren’t big and two of them don’t have many teeth left.

My favorite thing about the bag the treats come in are the words, “Made for your pet to eat, not you.” I never tried them but I wonder how many people have! Nom nom nom!

The only thing I don’t like about these dog treats is the way they make my hands feel greasy after I give some to my dogs. Besides my own little personal complaint, I found these treats to be good.

I would recommend checking them out if you have a dog or even a picky dog. I read some reviews awhile back on how some dogs who were picky ended up loving these treats. But remember to check the ingredients if your dog has a food allergy to make sure they won’t have a bad reaction to these treats.

You can check these treats out on Amazon or Full Moon’s website.

The Tea Thief

On cold days I enjoy a nice cup of tea with a teaspoon of honey. Its the perfect way to start the day. But the other day when I finished my cup of tea, the cup and the tea bag went missing!

I was washing dishes two days ago and went into the living room to grab my empty cup. I always leave my cup on the same table next to the couch. So, it was unusual to see it wasn’t there. I was thinking maybe I left it somewhere else. There was no sight of it when I walked around the house looking for it. I was starting to get frustrated. [Read more…]

Celebrating ten years

celebrating_ten_years_princess_lifetimewithdogsToday my mother and I threw a little celebration for Princess who joined our family ten years ago. She is the best thing that ever happened to me and I can’t imagine my life without her.

I remember seeing Princess on Petfinder in 2010 with her big eyes. That is all you saw in her photo and that is what caught my attention. I was interested in adopting her. Luckily my mom felt the same way. [Read more…]

Puppuccino Day

I went to Starbucks today because it is National Coffee Day. Since Oliver was in the car with me because we went shopping, I decided to get a special treat for him and the girls (who were probably pouting at home because they couldn’t come along). So, I got a Puppuccino for them to share. Best thing is it’s free!

What is a Puppuccino? It is a small cup of whipped cream that Starbucks offers to dogs. If you go through the drive thru and they see you have a dog, they will usually offer your dog a Puppuccino. Some Starbucks aren’t aware of this special puppy treat so you may have to inform them.

I definitely wouldn’t do it all the time since it isn’t very healthy, but they deserved a special treat. As you can see they all enjoyed it! What can I say, I love spoiling my pups!
