Dog Parks

When I lived in California we had two dog parks close to my house. One was a small fenced aread with a lot of things to climb and crawl through. The other park was a large field where the dogs could actually run and chase frisbees or tennis balls. We used to go to the dog park 3 – 4 times a week.

Ever since we moved away I have not been able to find any kind of dog park anywhere around here. There is no place where I can safely take my dogs off the leash and let them run. I really miss that.

Hate To Say Good-Bye To Summer

Today is the last day of the kids in this area’s summer vacation. I think we have everything that is on the Back To School Supply List and tonight we will be having an early dinner and hopefully the house will be nice and quiet so that we can all get to bed early to get a good night’s sleep before the big day that starts way too early for my taste.




For The Love of Dogs

It looks like it is time to start looking for new collars and new dog tags for dogs. The ones that our two beloved dogs are wearing now have both seen better days at this point. Actually I think I will look for harnesses for them to wear instead of a collar, I have been hearing that these harnesses are much better for Pugs since there has been an issue with their eyes popping out of their sockets while wearing collars that are too tight and then pulled on. That would not be a good thing for any of us to witness or deal with. I can’t even imagine how any of us would re act to something like that and of course with our luck it would happen at night or on the weekend when non of the local vets would be open for us to take them to.

We have been seeing some pretty cool custom dog tags for dogs online lately that I want to check out later on today. So I might as well look at harnesses as well even though we have a local Petco in town that we do business with from time to time. I really do prefer to do as much shopping online as possible. The one good thing about going to this particular store is that you are allowed to bring your pets in with you and makes for a good outing for the whole family. Unfortunately neither one of our Pugs do well in the car, after 15 minutes of riding one or the other will certainly throw up and that is no fun to deal with while trying to drive. And the kids don’t take kindly with riding the rest of the way there with vomit on their laps and various other places in the car!

Tickle My Funny Bone

This is one of the funniest and best signs that I have seen lately and I’ve seen a lot of signs thanks to the Internet and all the photos and videos that it brings right to our fingertips. My best friend is great at finding this funny pics and she really likes sending what she finds to me every now and then and I appreciate the time and effort that she puts into it each time. We all need a laugh now and then!

Being Proactive With My Car

I want to find the best ac repair in the area that I can to make sure that my car’s air conditioning is in tip top shape. I have a feeling that this is going to be a long and very hot and humid summer.

There is nothing worse than being all dolled up in nice clothes, perfectly groomed hair and full make up, and get into the car only to find that the air conditioning has issues. With all of the humidity that this area is well known for, it can really ruin your day. So far I have been lucky with the current vehicle that I am driving, but my last car was a huge disappointment and a real pain in the rear when it came to either keeping me warm or keeping me cool. This time I want to be as proactive as I can possibly can.
