In reality, they are living beings that get worn out just like us. And if you have … Continue reading Dogs need rest and conditioning too!
When Cosmo was just 8 weeks old, I started walking onto the playground equipment and letting him follow me. Cosmo was born a confident pup, so the wobbly bridge and grated bridge didn’t even cause him to pause. He thought the playground was great! Note: With a less confident pup, … Continue reading Cosmo goes to the playground
At the end of November, the big day finally came. Cosmo was coming home! It seemed to be the longest seven weeks ever waiting for him to be ready to come home.

Nine months after Lizzie passed, I was finally ready to try again with another pup. You can never replace a dog, and each dog is unique. I had to wait until I was ready to accept a dog that wasn’t Lizzie, and not before. On September 27, 2013, I was sitting at brunch with friends … Continue reading Choosing my new puppy!
I have to share this because it has made such a huge improvement in my dog’s quality of life! As my 14 year old, 65lb dog, Carmina, has gotten older, her hips have gotten weaker. As they have gotten weaker, she started to slip and fall on the hardwood floors. It really killed me to … Continue reading No more slipping on hardwood floors!
I’ve moved to a new house and I guess the layout has made this problem noticeable. I assume it was doing the same thing at my old house, but there was no patio and I didn’t go outside much, so I guess I didn’t notice. Now, I notice. Carmina, the 14yr old female, now doesn’t … Continue reading My yard smells like dog pee
I miss taking a nap and waking up to a giant knuckle bone being gently placed on my chest, a prized gift to me. I miss her wet nose sniffing at my face. I miss being steam rolled in the morning when I slept too late. Right and left, right and left, … Continue reading Things I miss about Lizzie…
I have always wanted a German Shepherd since I can remember. I don’t know what actually started my fascination with the breed; I just know I always wanted one. When I was a child, I dreamed of having a strong, noble, and loyal German Shepherd that would always be by my side, my best friend. … Continue reading Lizzie’s First Months
I haven’t been able to bring myself to write on this blog for quite some months. I think I am ready to deal with it now, but I’m going to take the next I don’t know how many posts to just write about my Lizzie and all the things we did that I didn’t get … Continue reading My Lizzie…..
Ever year we have our annual pumpkin carving contest. Not a real contest, just the same friends vying for bragging rights and a “prize,” and every year I try to find a fun stencil that will win me the coveted first prize…which I had yet to win. This year, I found a German Shepherd Pumpkin … Continue reading German Shepherd Pumpkin Carving Stencil
Many people may not think that their dogs teeth need maintaining just like human teeth. Some dogs need it much more frequently than others. Smaller dogs tend to suffer from plaque build up more than larger dogs, and as our vet told me this last visit, a dog’s individual physical differences can play a part. … Continue reading Dogs need Dentists too! Is it time to clean your dog’s teeth?
I have been absent from writing on my blog from some time now because I have been dealing with the unexpected loss of two of my childhood friends. To make the story short, on February 25, I invited my two friends to go out for dinner and to spend some time together. Around 12:30am I … Continue reading Saying goodbye to friends….
