Pawsitively Pets is a BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Award Finalist!

If you are part of the wonderful community that exists in the world of Pet Blogging, then you're probably familiar with the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards. To be a finalist for a BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Award is a big deal and huge honor.

The 2016 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Award ceremony in Phoenix, AZ.

Finalists are invited to join an award ceremony during the annual BlogPaws conference. During the ceremony, they are able to walk down the red carpet and winners for each category are announced. I attended the BlogPaws conference last year for the first time, and while I wasn't a finalist it was quite an extravagant award ceremony.

Spring Break Zoo Visit

Last week was Spring Break for us. The weather was nice and sunny with mild temperatures so we decided to pack it up and visit the San Antonio Zoo with my father.

The San Antonio Zoo is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is home to many animals representing 750 species. It spans 56 acres and more than 1,000,000 people visit the zoo each year. There are many attractions at the zoo including a butterfly house, a train that drives through Brackenridge Park, a petting zoo, a carousel, and Lory Landing. I've visited this zoo many times with my parents as a child and a few times with my own children as an adult.

Unfortunately, we learned that Spring Break may not be the best time to visit... the traffic was atrocious because everyone else decided to make a trip there during Spring Break. We couldn't find anywhere to park, so my dad finally dropped us off at the front. He was stuck in traffic for 2 more hours looking for a place to park while the kids and I wandered around the zoo.

Toys Made for Senior Dogs | Old Soul Bone

As my dog has aged, I've noticed that she is less of a vigorous chewer on specific toys. She enjoys chewing on softer dog toys now that she is 14 years old. I actually prefer this anyways, because I know that her teeth are not quite as strong as they used to be when she was younger.

I've seen countless dog toys marketed towards young dogs and puppies, but never before had I seen a dog toy that was specifically made for senior dogs. When I found a Senior Dog Toy section on Planet Dog's website, I knew we needed to try one.
