I Borrowed my Housemates' Pets this Halloween for a Photoshoot
The only thing better than Halloween and pets is pets dressed for Halloween. Not convinced? Well, there's a good reason why Americans spend an estimated $350 million each year on Halloween costumes for their pets.
My Buddy Le Croissant
Okay, so maybe not exactly a croissant. Instead of a delectable buttery and flaky pastry you enjoy eating, it is a furry little four-legged friend that slightly resembles a fox, and has a big attitude. Speaking of furry, this doggy has so much fur– and randomly in connection to croissants, imagine a croissant shedding another croissant– which would be impressive and yummy honestly, but this breed somehow manages to shed another dog twice a year. Sometimes I think my dog is somewhat more of my boss as with his routine he demands a walk near the same time everyday or he'll voice his displeasure with vocal yawns and whining. The morning walk itself has to be relatively the same amount of distance each time (over a mile long) or he'll show his disappointment with his refusal to move.
May Our Workforce Be With You!
In the words of the real Princess Leia…“Stay afraid but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.”

To Everybody Else, You Are Only a Dog
To my dearest Riley, To everybody else, you are only a dog, a miniscule fact of life, a being that holds little value when compared to that of a person. It is to this fact that I disagree whole-heartedly. I want to tell you your worth, before I lose my chance, before you are but a memory in my heart.
A Feral Friendship
Years ago, if anyone was to tell me I’d grow up to be a crazy cat lady, I would have laughed in their face. My family is a dog family. Plain and simple. Sure, as a kid I would always go out of my way to capture neighborhood strays and try to convince my Dad to let me keep them, but the answer was always a firm “no.”
Why You Should Adopt an Older Animal

Shadow and His Funny ways
When I was a little girl, at the ripe age of nine, I got a cat. It had been some months since my dog got loose and was hit by a car. It was my first pet and I was heartbroken. Every time someone mentioned his name or showed me his picture, I would cry. I lost my first furry best friend.
The Truth About Your Pets
If there was one phrase I wish I could never hear at work again (other than "so I googled it and..."), it would be this: "My dog/cat NEVER bites."
T'is the season of torment and torture. By that, I mean it’s Halloween. Being a parent I see posts every year about ideas for “family” costumes. You know the cute, coordinating outfits like The Addams Family or Marvel super heroes. Being a pet parent as well I couldn’t help but wonder… What about coordinating costumes for people and their pet.

Best Teething Toys For Puppies
Congrats on your new puppy! Being a pet parent is one of the most joyful things you will get to experience. BUT along with those snuggles and wagging tails, comes the frustrating stage where they want to chew everything...and I do mean EVERYTHING. They want to bite your ankles, your fingers and your favorite shoes. Like human babies, puppies go through a teething stage and it can be quite painful for them (and you of course) so they try to relieve the pain by chewing.
