Warm weather has finally arrived, and many dog parents are looking forward to spending more time outside. With warm weather comes ticks, and the risk of contracting tick-borne infections like Lyme disease. Lyme disease causes symptoms like fever, fatigue, and joint pain that can sometimes last for years. It can affect humans, dogs, and in rare cases, cats. Ticks hang out in wooded areas and fields and cling to people […]
For a while now Leo has been pretty good off-leash in certain situations. At the dog park, he usually ends up walking with us along the trail. Even at the beach, he’ll run in and out of the water or play with dogs walking by but generally stay near us. When we are visiting his best friend, Oscar, we need to block off the porch or dock so Leo doesn’t […]
It’s true, there really is a holiday for everything, and on the last Friday in April, we’re celebrating Hairball Awareness Day with a special giveaway. Of course, if you’re one of the millions of cat parents who regularly come across hairballs on the couch, in your bed, or on the floor, you’re already quite aware of this hairy problem.

Leo’s new morning routine consists of a longer walk than he used to get, which he absolutely loves. We are getting up at the same time to feed Leo at his normal feeding time and using the time it takes to commute to work to give Leo a nice, […]

Thankfully, for my carpet’s sake, he grew out of that. Now his usual form of “can’t. contain. this. excitement.” is an uncontrollable butt wiggle that is not in sync with his tail. Sometimes his excitement can […]
