Is Your Dog a Healthy Weight?
Personally, in the past I found it extremely difficult to determine if my dog was the perfect weight, overweight or underweight. I don’t have the right scale at home to weigh my dogs, and even if I did, how do I know if their weight is healthy or not? I recently went to my Veterinarian to get the yearly Rabies vaccination for Bruce Lee. She weighed Bruce Lee and did a[…]Read more

Dogs love Strollers
I bought a stroller for little Rocco Jet 15 years ago, before they even had “dog strollers” available for dog owners to purchase. I purchased strollers for human children and used them for Rocco. I found the strollers made for infants work perfectly for little dogs because they are usually designed almost like a bassinet. This is a great design because it keeps your dog from falling out and usually has[…]Read more

It is your responsibility as a dog owner to protect your dogs from becoming over stressed. Here[…]Read more
Toxic Food and Plants for DOGS
Your dog is like a little baby, constantly inspecting and studying every little thing and putting EVERYTHING in its mouth. They have no idea what they are doing could possibly make them terribly sick or even become fatal. It is up to you to monitor their little chompers and protect them from toxic food and plants. Human food smells good, looks good and tastes good, so we assume that if it[…]Read more
