In case you didn't know, Safety is my middle name. Whether I am moonlighting as a superhero or saving the day as a fire fighting dog, I keep a busy schedule. This blogging thing is just a fun side gig I like to use to express myself. The other night our dinner was punctuated by the sounds of sirens blaring and we heard heavy trucks barreling down our normally quiet street. … [Read more...] about Firefighters are REAL Superheroes
I'm a puppy who enjoys playing with a plush pal from time to time. Whether I'm nuzzling them, licking their ears (I also enjoyed grooming my kitty friend Snippet's ears), or playing catch with them, they're an integral part of my work day here at the house. So imagine my joy when the mail man brought an Amazon Prime package to our house and mom and dad said it was for me! Oh … [Read more...] about ZippyPaws Woodland Friends
Health is of utmost importance to an aged gentleman like myself, and a big component of that health is my oral health. Did you know that in humans periodontal disease has been connected with diabetes, heart disease, even cancer and Alzheimer's? In dogs it has been studied and found to cause microscopic changes in the heart, liver, and kidneys. Not to mention the havoc it wreaks … [Read more...] about Brusha brusha brusha
I previously shared my love of snow in my Snow Day post, so imagine my excitement when my neighborhood got 14" of snow dumped on it! It took FOREVER for mom and dad to get the kids in their snow gear, but once they were suited up and ready to go it was time to head outside! Here I am surveying my domain. I am king of all that I can see. The kids love to sled into … [Read more...] about King of the Mountain
People have often wondered where such a dapper gentleman gets his good looks. Well, firstly, from God. Since I was adopted from the Humane Society (which my parents HIGHLY recommend- they say I'm the best dog they've ever had) the details of my background and lineage has never exactly been known. Me as a little pup, wasn't I all downy and cute? That doesn't stop … [Read more...] about Who am I?
One thing you may not know about me is I have a fondness for animals. I used to have a kitty friend but sadly she passed away earlier this year. Since then I have returned to my stuffed animals - I have a duck, fox, and I recently acquired a fawn puppet from my children. They bring me a sense of calm in a world filled with chaos. Waking, going outside to use the bathroom, … [Read more...] about My family went to the zoo and all I got is this yummy tuna.
I'm a dog who isn't against getting dressed up every now and again- so Halloween is the perfect opportunity to pretend to be someone else for an evening. My kids are all about the superheroes right now, and since they are huge Lego Batman fans they decided to be Batman and Batgirl for Halloween. Ideas on what to be raced through my furry head-- I thought about being the Penguin … [Read more...] about Meet the Crimefighting Batdog and his Batteam!
Have you ever known a dog who didn’t love having the wind in his face? Whether it is during a car ride with the window rolled down or on a boat, we dogs enjoy the fresh air blowing and ruffling our faces. Last weekend I got to enjoy a boat ride on my grandpa’s pontoon boat with my family. It is one of my favorite things to do in life, just cruising, listening to … [Read more...] about Sailing The High Seas In My Orange Life Vest
This has been a hard post to write so I have been avoiding it for awhile. My best friend in the whole world, my sister Snippet, died in June. To say I was devastated is an understatement. My whole family was really upset, she was 14, so I've only ever known life with my furry little companion. We were together pretty much all the time, except when she had enough of the … [Read more...] about Snippet
You know what gets me down? You know, super bummed and sad-like? Fleas, ticks and heart worms, man, that's what! My parents don't want me to be dealing with that stuff either, so they give me Sentinel for heartworm. In case you're a new dog friend- heartworms are transmitted by mosquito bites. Heartworms have now been found in all 50 states of our union. Historically … [Read more...] about Fleas, Ticks, & Heartworms – oh my!
