Shiner's 12th Barkday

Yesterday, we celebrated a very special birthday! It was Shiner's 12th birthday. Yes, Shiner is a senior lady. I know it's hard to believe... she doesn't look (or act) a day over 3. ;)


For her birthday, Shiner first got a special meal. It was her normal food, mixed with chicken broth and a few treats on top. And as far as presents go, I let her destroy her Hippo Snail plush toy from her February PetBox. She had a lot of fun with that!

Later on that evening, I went out with the family to watch my daughter's choir performance at school. I came home, checked my computer, and learned that I am a Finalist in the 2015 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards! My blog post "How Important is Credibility" is a finalist for Best Written Pet Blog Post.

Does My Dog's Neck Hurt?

Last week, my dog experienced neck pain for what was probably the first time in her life. Thankfully, I was able to quickly and easily identify what was wrong with her. How? Well, after working as a Veterinary Technician for several years I've personally seen other dogs with neck pain and know what the symptoms and signs of neck pain in dogs are.


Still, you don't have to have a background in Veterinary Medicine to be able to tell something is not quite right with your dog. The symptoms of neck pain in dogs is fairly easy to identify.

First of all, I noticed Shiner, my dog, seemed much less active than normal and wasn't quite feeling herself. I knew she was sick, but I didn't know why just yet. I observed her closely for the rest of the day and after watching her, I was able to determine that her neck hurt.

Snapshots on Sunday: Purple

Each week, we join the 52 Snapshots of Life Photo Challenge. There's a new word and theme we have to capture on camera each week, and this week the word is "purple". Purple is my favorite color. Even though Shiner's favorite color is pink, I still have plenty of purple stuff for her to wear.


In our photo for this week's challenge, Shiner is wearing her purple Martha Stewarts Pets sweater and purple Puller dog toy. And she's being a little silly, as usual.

It's been a very cold week for us. I know, we live in Texas but it really has been cold! Temperatures have been in the 30's and it's been very damp and rainy. I've been having to force Shiner to go outside to use the bathroom because she just hates going out there when it's cold and wet.

Pawsome Pet of the Week - Harley the Groovy Goldendoodle

Ready for your weekly dose of Pawsome Pets? This week's Pawsome Pet of the Week is Harley the Goldendoodle. He's groovy, he's fluffy, he's handsome, and he's got charm. Harley is a 6 year old F1 Goldendoodle named after his mom's fave hobby - Harley Davidson Bennett (His full name). I had no idea what an F1 Goldendoodle was, so Harley filled me in.


"The F1 means I am a first generation Goldendoodle. Im 50% purebred Golden Retriever and 50% purebred Poodle. While I have the hypoallergenic qualities, its important to note that most F1 Goldendoodles can still shed lightly."
Here's a little more about Harley's background, which I was happy to learn because I did not know this about him.
