    May 16th, 2008 admin

    Pet Gifts for the Soul

    April 22nd, 2008 admin

    Meet Maverick

    April 17th, 2008 admin

    He’s a rebel, an edgy kind of guy befitting his name. We rescued him 7 years ago from doggy jail. His rap sheet said he was arrested for chasing horses—a big no-no in these parts. We didn’t have high expectations for Maverick. The first weekend with us we took him to the beach and he [...]

    Strange Pets

    March 27th, 2008 admin

    When people think of pets, they usually think of dogs and cats.  Maybe the occasional fish or bird.  I, however, have a family friend who owns a Hedgehog. Her name is Ruby and she is the cutest little thing. She has so much personality, loves to play and is even litter box trained. They’re not [...]

    Adolescent Dog Desires to Learn New Tricks

    March 18th, 2008 admin

    Okay, let’s be honest, the only things my dog really desires are tennis balls and never ending fields to chase them in. My dog defines his breed better than any other retriever I’ve ever met!
