Confession #1: Sometimes I sleep with my clients.

If you’re a dog sitter or use a dog sitter you’ll enjoy this hilarious article from 4knines blog. Join one pet sitter on her daily adventures, #confessionsofadogsitter,  and learn the inside scoop of what goes on behind the scenes.

A few years ago to make some extra money, I thought why not try dog sitting. I have three of my own, love dogs, so how hard could it be to take in a guest or two and watch them?

I have since learned that someone’s perfect angel takes on the persona of Cujo once they walk out the door. When the owner looks at me and says they think it will work, I now know they mean for them. For the dog sitter it’s just the beginning.

What’s Really In Your Dog’s Food?

April 28 | 26 Comments

prewashatlanta2011 026 (3)We’ve been buying our pups Purina’s Pro Plan food for a while.  It is supposed to be their upper line and is not inexpensive, especially when you are feeding three large dogs.  I thought I was buying a good product until a friend sent me over this information from Dogs Naturally.   It has to do with aflatoxins and melamine or cyanuric acid being found in the food. Toxins which can make your dog very sick and in some cases be deadly.  Like back in 2007 when there was an outbreak of contaminated dog foods and dogs died because of this.  Read more

There’s an article on Pet 360 but nowhere do I see a Chowberger listed.  In case you don’t know what a Chowberger is it’s part chow, some leonberger, with a twist of retriever. That’s me, of course.  While the post may be interesting I cannot verify the accuracy because if I’m not on there who knows what else they left out. Woof! -Kensy, The Dog Read more

Puppy Mill Dog’s New Life

April 18 | 9 Comments

We now have our thirdGeorge-590x393 puppy mill dog, Bethany, who we adopted seven months ago.  When we adopted our first, Logan, we really didn’t know what a puppy mill was.

Here’s the story of George. Read more

Divorce Your Spouse, Not The Dog
