    I'm quite stressed right now. Our puppy keeps running away. To give her more outdoor time in the summer, DH made a dog run...which she learned how to escape from every time. She uses things (including the dog run fence itself) to climb up and over the fence. It's very frustrating. Now our...

    Friday I go to give the pooches a bath, and notice that Bella has a large mat on her shoulder to under her ear! This dog has NEVER had a mat. And I couldn't work it out :( SO much to my dismay, we would have the shave her. So Saturday, I do the deed. Leave her legs long, and a full head and a...

    Gizmo is such a little card. This morning while eating, she dropped a mouth full of food into her water dish. This became great fun, as she was bobbing for the food(which sits at the bottom of the dish). She was blowing bubbles in the water while grabbing the food! She is very funny. She went...

    I woke up early this morning. It don't need an alarm clock since I have the puppy in a crate. He lets me know when I should get up and take him for a walk. After I walked him, I fed both dogs and took them out again in the rain. Then, I made the mistake of sitting down to drink some coffee...

    has an ear problem. I think its ear mites but not positive. I have been using the ear mite stuff on it though and it looks a little better. She keeps shaking her head so I know it has to be bothering her some. Any ideas on home remedies??? Debbie

    The lady just sent me new pics of Gizmo. I emailed to see how she was doing, if potty training was progressing. Here is what she wrote: I laughed sooo hard. Because this is like Bella. We were camping and she got off the deck loose. Dh went after her, and Bella pranced, and I do mean that...

    Last night our puppies (7 month old brothers) went outside with the hubs while he was getting some wood. While they were out the puppies must have started to play and chase each other around the yard. At some point they ran out to the road. Cooper was chasing Tucker back home when a minivan...
