    A Different Kind of Seeing Eye Dog

    September 29th, 2008 admin

    Doggie Blues

    September 18th, 2008 admin

    With my recent move there have been a couple of things about my dog that are very disconcerting, and annoying. The first, and potentially most serious development, is that my dog is experiencing intense separation anxiety when we leave the apartment for any period of time. He has always whined when we left, and scratched at [...]

    Soak Up the Sun Before it’s Gone!

    August 28th, 2008 admin

    Here we are with the last days of summer upon us. This is always a somewhat sad time of year for me, knowing that (at least here in the North West) we will only sporadically see the sun in the next 8-9 months. Like a lot of others, I’m determined to absorb as [...]

    Chateau La Paws

    July 2nd, 2008 admin

    The warm summer weather is officially here in the Northwest. I am not a big fan of the hot weather. I prefer to spend my days inside with the AC cranked up with something cool and refreshing to drink. My dogs, however, will not allow that! They just love the sun and are sun worshipers [...]

    Pet Tips for the Fourth of July

    June 26th, 2008 admin

    The 4th of July has always been my favorite holiday but definitely not my pets. They absolutely hate the loud noises and the bright flashing lights. I read that more pets get lost on the 4th of July than at any other time of the year. With the 4th just next week, it’s time to [...]

    June 13th, 2008 admin

    My husband and I have a big old loveable black Lab we rescued about 5 years ago that we named Gunner. When Gunner looks at our garbage can he sees a giant snack bin, an endless source of exotic food that he has never tasted and will die if he doesn’t. He has gotten resourceful [...]

    Pet Lovers

    June 4th, 2008 admin

    The GiftTree office is full of pet lovers. There are even a few employees here that bring their dogs to work everyday. Throughout the day I hear the rattle of dog collars and the sound of dog paws walking throughout the office. The fact that we have dogs in the office each day, really makes [...]

    May 29th, 2008 admin

    I want to tell you guys about my 2 dogs. Their names are Fritz and Frank and they are miniature dachshunds, but the miniature part went out the window years ago. They are spoiled rotten and do silly things that make me laugh nearly every single day. I think before they go [...]
