Have a Stress-Free Holiday With Your Dog

The Holidays can be a busy and stressful time of year for both you and your dog. There's the hustle and bustle of trying to get gifts, wrap them, cleaning, cooking, and so much more. As many of you are aware already, this Holiday season has been particularly stressful for myself. 

Of course, I feel bad for Shiner and even the Rat Boys right now because I haven't had as much time as I would like to devote to them. But, in times of stress I find that sitting with them and petting them for even just five minutes is very relaxing and calming for both of us. I can see in Shiner's eyes that she just wants to help and be close to me right now. As I attempt to get back into the swing of blogging again, I know that Shiner is going to be immensely helpful to me. 

Studies have shown that spending time with your dog or other pets is good for your health. Just Right by Purina has created a nice infographic that displays how to have a stress-free holiday with your dog.

A New Angel at the Rainbow Bridge

On December 17th, 2014 my mother lost her battle with cancer. She was not old, only 55 years young. 

Me, my brother, and my mom. 

For the past year, she underwent surgery, chemotherapy treatment, and radiation. She did great for all of her treatments and it was believed that she was cancer free in late summer. Two weeks ago, she was admitted to the hospital because she was feeling sick. For a week, it was thought that she had pneumonia. Last week, the doctors determined that her breast cancer had returned and spread and she had stage 4 adenocarcinoma around her lungs making it hard for her to breath.

We'll Be Around

Hi everyone, we just wanted to give you a heads up that we may posting a little less than usual. Shiner's Grandma (aka my mom) is in the hospital right now and she's pretty sick. I'll continue to post things as I feel the need to, because I like blogging and it keeps my mind at ease.

We may also be visiting our other blogging friends less, which you may have noticed. We still try to keep up with you on social media and still care about everyone! I promise we haven't forgotten about anyone. So anyways, we'll be around just maybe a little less than usual.
