Zeus, Forever in Our Hearts #HeartDog

Today marks the second anniversary of saying goodbye to our Happy Old Man.

big dog sleeping on couch

Zeus was truly one-of-a-kind. He was such a happy-go-lucky dog, and taught us all to live, love, and be happy.

Zeus' love of life and will to live were beyond anything I have ever witnessed before - canine or human. He loved nothing more than to please his humans, and we were so incredibly lucky to share 14 amazing years with him.

Not a day goes by that I don't miss my big boy. At 140 pounds, he was the original Lapdog... and boy did he love to cuddle!

So today, in honor of my boy, please give your furbabies some extra kisses and cuddle time.

Love and kisses, always and forever, we miss you big boy...

Kurgo Loft Jacket Combines Function and Style

While Old Man Winter may have said goodbye, Mother Nature is making sure Spring says hello with some wind, cold temps, and even a little snow.

As any New Englander knows, we just need to keep our winter coats and boots out a little longer - and yes, that includes the dog jackets!

Happy Butterhound Day!

Apparently March 26 is "Make Up Your Own Holiday." The day encourages people to be creative and quirky while honoring a person, place, or thing to celebrate.

Sophie thought it should be all about her, and I couldn't agree more with my little springy Butterhound.

What are you celebrating today?

Snow or Mud? #BlackAndWhiteSunday

Happy Sunday! 

While I'm not sure Tut was missing the snow as much as Penny, I think he still prefers it over the mud we've had lately. At least he enjoyed the bit of white stuff we got on Friday.

Look Who's 2 - Happy Birthday Penny!

Can you believe it? The youngest Lapdog is turning 2 today!

Happy Birthday Penny!
doberman mix rescue puppy second birthday

On one hand, it seems like we were just celebrating her first birthday - and on the other, it seems like she's been a part of our family forever.

The once 8.5 lb bundle that landed at our house is now teetering around 50 lbs and continues to bring us nothing but joy and happiness.

Penny is such a happy-go-lucky, easy-going girl, just like her big angel sister Lola (which is probably why it seems like she's been around for so long). She's happy to go on an adventure and will chase a ball for hours, but still loves to crawl up and cuddle with her humans.

Have You Seen My Snow? #BlackAndWhiteSunday

Sunday, already? We're not quite sure how that happened, but let's make the most of it!

Penny is wondering where all the white stuff went. She much prefers a romp in the snow over sloshing through the mud any day... and I can't say that I blame her.

3 rescue dogs posing for love your pet day

While it may seem a little silly, because we all know that pet parents love their pets each and every day, it is fun to celebrate!  After all, didn't we just celebrate Valentine's Day... and shouldn't you love your significant other the rest of the year too?
On February 20th, pet lovers everywhere observe National Love Your Pet Day. This holiday is a day set aside to give extra attention to and pamper your pets. This is a good day to focus on the special relationship that you have with your pets. -National Day Calendar
No matter what type of pet has stolen your heart, here are some ideas of what you can do to celebrate today. 

Ways to Celebrate National Love Your Pet Day
  • Take them for a longer walk or explore someplace new
  • Give them extra attention / petting 
  • Have your own little selfie photo session
  • Take them outside for a romp in the snow or a walk on the beach, depending on your location
  • Get your DIY on and make them a special new toy - check out our fleece tug toy tutorial or visit Pinterest for more ideas
  • Take them for a car ride
  • Sign them up for a fun class - Penny can't get enough of her nosework
  • Get them a new bed 
  • Make them a special treat
  • Take them on a playdate
  • Buy them a fun new collar

No matter what you do - or don't do (no pressure!) - just enjoy it... and love your pet today, and every day!

Forever in Our Hearts #BlackAndWhiteSunday

Today marks the second anniversary of saying goodbye to the sweetest girl in the world.

Lola was such a beautiful, happy, loving girl... always smiling and always wanting to make new friends. It's amazing how much of her personality we see in Penny. We are constantly seeing new similarities, and boy does it put a smile on my face. If only they had the chance to meet...
