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?
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
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!
When you have the discerning palate of a distinguished old sea captain, not just any pet food will satisfy your hunger. I have gone on hunger strike many a day when my parents switched me to a new food that I just didn't care for. As an aside, I also don't eat for several meals on occasion when I am trying to maintain my boyish figure. It confuses the stuff out of my parents … [Read more...] about Nulo Dog Food & Vittles Vault
Good day, mates! Ralph here, freshly bathed and posting about my life in this little corner of the world. I have the kind of hair that gets really light and downy and starts to float away after a bath. This results in many puppy hair tumbleweeds that my mom chases after with the vacuum. Brushing me right afterwards helps with this problem a little bit. Mom and Dad use the … [Read more...] about I’ll be back….The Furminator and treats for the teeth!
