    Favorite Halloween costume

    So, with Halloween a month and a half away, I have been thinking about what Izzy and Gus should be this year. Not sure if we will just recycle old ones. Anyway, I was thinking of things they have been before, and remembered what Izzy was as a puppy... a baby! :lol: She was in her first obedience...

    Gus got another raccoon!!

    It was probably 2 years ago when Gus caught and killed a raccoon. That one bit him in the mouth, but other than that, he was fine. Well, tonight, I had them in the backyard with me, while I was scrubbing litter pans. I looked up because I could see both of them out of the corner of my eye and...

    The family that I am now working for full time, I have known and worked for off and on since the oldest child was born and she is now 8. The other kids are 6yrs old and the baby is 7 months.

    Healing vibes for Gus

    When I had to board Izzy and Gus back in May, a week later, Gus came down with kennel cough. Now, he has it again!!! UGH! Izzy had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and now this. I wish they could both be healthy! I hate when they feel bad! I don't know where he got it this time. He did go to do the...

    Izzy's surgeries

    Izzy is having surgery on Wednesday. Of course as her mom, I worry about any surgery. She is having the hardware removed from her knee from her ACL repair from 2007. Also, she has gingival hyperplasia, so they will take care of that. And she has to get 2 lumps removed. I am so worried about the...

    Leash/dog agression

    I posted about this a while ago, but now Gus is worse. I have been unable to walk Gus for some time because I was severly overweight. I started walking Gus again once I was able, and he is so much worse. I am sure most people are going to suggest a trainer or behaviorist, but I am currently...
