The Worst Morning Walk with Dogs

Everyone has their own morning routine right? Well my day always starts with a quick morning walk with the dogs. Usually before I do much else, I am out the door with the dogs. Now I’m pretty comfortable where I live. I don’t feel the need to look...
Allergies begone! Hello Nutrazinc!

Allergies begone! Hello Nutrazinc!

My last post left off talking about Apoquel for Yuki’s allergies.  I’d never ordered pet medication by mail and I had no idea how long the process was going to take.  It took about 3 weeks by the time I received the medication.  Unfortunately for Yuki...

Nintendo, SNES, Sega and Dogs

When I got all A’s on my report card for a whole year, my parents got me a Sega Genesis.  I think I was in 2nd grade.  I still own that Sega Genesis today.  I’ve since owned a Dreamcast, Playstation 2, and an Xbox 360.  They were all played enough, but I...
