How Much Does Mobile Pet Grooming Service Costs?
When you watch a dog on your favorite show, you can see the way the dogs' coats flicker and glow in the hanging light, not a single hair is out of its place, and you wonder: how can they groom their dogs so perfectly? While for many people the concept of grooming their pets is like a hobby, grooming pets is vital for their overall health and well-being.
Help Wanted: Seeking Kitty Girl Friday for Light Office Duties, to Fill Family Furball Role
Two adorable green eyes peered out at me from a Craigslist ad – over whiskers that extended well beyond her little furry face. She had one paw delicately curled underneath her – and she looked small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.
World's Best Teaching Assistant
I never imagined myself to be the kind of person to dote on a seven-pound chihuahua, but life is funny like that. Yes, I was one of those people who got a pet during the pandemic, but my husband and I had been talking about getting a dog well before we got married, waiting until we were more financially stable and emotionally ready to devote as much of our attention as we could to adjusting our lifestyles to accommodate a dog.
July 12th, 2021 is a day that I’ll never quite forget. The summer sun was blazing as hot as ever, and yet I sat shivering in the passenger seat of my boyfriend’s car—windows down and all. Every time I felt my Goldendoodle move in the slightest, I shivered at the excitement (but more-so nervousness) of the fact that for the very first time in my life, I was going to be fully in charge of another life.
About A Dog
About A Dog Ken Hay I celebrated my 79thbirthday on 27 January 20. One month after that was the sixth anniversary of my wife’s death from cancer. In those six years, well, the last four of them anyway, I searched in vain for a new partner. Joined clubs and associations and did the on-line dating thing. Lots of coffee, lots of lunches, lots of travel but no success.
The top of my dog's head, his keppie, has a soft patch of fur between his two floppy velvet ears. When he was an adopted dachshund puppy, he would curl his coffee bean body up in my crisscrossed legs for warmth. I would slowly pet the soft spot on his head, work my finger over the bridge of his nose and back again.
"The Awesome Day"
The very sad day our hearts' broke is March 7th, 2021 at 7:00 A.M. My Six year old sweet gorgeous grey Maine Coon Mix fur baby cat suffered for months with bladder block and kidney fail. After going to the vet getting a catheter, diapers and medicine he seemed OK in January. Then we had a snowstorm and when it started to melt on a nicer day in March we harnessed him and let him and beautiful orange cream Norwegian Forrest sister play outside in our front yard on their leashes. My husband suddenly noticed him licking the snow, pulling him away, but where the malicious neighbors whom also had 3 cats, so they had the litter to clean up their truck's oil leaks' on the pavement where it was parked. He told them repeatedly to clean that up. This was on Friday and we found out he was seriously poisoned that day and I called the Veterarian's office and found out the emergency Vet was out of town for the weekend and the Vet Doctor wouldn't be in his office until Monday morning.
Love at first sight
My association with a pet started when I was around 6 years old. Although most of my student life was in a boarding school, still my days during holidays were the most memorable ones. The credit goes to the furry little Pomeranian (Breed doesn't matter) we had, named Jimmy. Every single day of my holidays, I still cherish because I never felt alone even without no human presence around me most of the time. My bonding with Jimmy was of a friend and a younger brother and this bonding stayed till the end. Those memories still brighten my boring days.
That Time a Kitten Saved Me
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have noticed something about home offices. A lot of them have pets. I, for one, absolutely love going on zoom meetings with folks who I know have pets. It has become an important part of office culture to introduce our peers to our furry coworkers, and I am absolutely living for it. As is the case for many of us, I have been working remotely for over a year now. Remote work suits me. I am the type of person who is most productive while in a comfortable space, and of course, nearby my children (not one of them human). As 2021 crawled by, my life has changed enormously. As most of my life tends to be, my story can be begun with an interaction I had with an animal.
The Adventures of Aladdin
Gotta keep one jump ahead of the sitter, one hop out the apartment into the flower bed. The sitter doesn't appreciate I'm trying to follow mommy. I whined, and mommy must not have heard me. I was still left in my crate. I escaped. Gotta duck past the sitter to get to the front door. One jump ahead of grandma, my paw unlocked the car window. Just a little hop grams will help me follow mommy. These guys keep trying to catch me. They're quick, but I'm much faster.
Empawee of Year
“And now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, Empawee of the Year award!” The emcee scans the crowd and finds the two contestants sitting next to each other. They’ve both won several individual categories so far tonight, but this, this was the big one. Everyone knows they have both been campaigning hard and the tension is high.
When a Rescue Animal Chooses You
I’m a firm believer that rescue animals make the best companions animals. There’s some debate as to how much cognition cats and dogs actually have. However, rescue animals seem to realize how awful their lives once were versus how good their lives are once they’ve found a loving home.
