Screen-Shot-2012-12-16-at-8.52.28-PM

We are almost at that time of year when it just about feels dark out just about all the time. It's dark when you get up. It's dark when you leave for work. It is dark when you come home...... and it most certainly is dark for most of your daily dog walks.To give me and my dogs greater visibility during dark walks, I've tried quite a few different lighted collars, leashes, or clip on lights in my 20 years of owning a dog.

Ahhhh, the best bed in the world!

Obasan dog bed

We're excited. The dog *should* be excited, as she will soon have the BEST bed in the house. Yes, she already has twice as many beds as the rest of the inhabitants of the house. But frankly, they stink. And they are lumpy.For the past few months, our dog has been pacing and pacing and pacing around the house at night, I *think* trying to tell me that she needs a more comfortable spot to lie. (Or maybe she just needs more cookies? Who knows. Maybe we need a dog-whisperer?) She stares … [Read more...]

Review: Sounds of Baby CD

heart

Product Review - Sounds of Baby CD After living happily as a family of 3 (2 humans, 1 dog) for years, our family is growing. We're expecting a baby. This news is requiring some adjustment on all of our parts - the rock 'n roll studio is being relocated, the spare rooms will be needed for more than just ironing and dust collection experiments, and our sprawling piles of stuff are being purged. We've discussed the impending arrival with our 7 year old gentle-giant of a dog but we're not convinced … [Read more...]
