When Is Spring Here to Stay?

We want to know when Spring will be here to stay for good. We've heard lots of our blogging friends up North have gotten more snow! And last night, the temperature dropped here again to freezing. We hope it's the last cold spell!


Shiner says, "Where are you Spring?!"

April #PetBox Review and Giveaway

Shiner's favorite time of the month is when the delivery man brings her PetBox to our house. By now, she's familiar with the boxes and knows that they contain lots of good stuff inside of them just for her. Shiner is a PetBox Spokesdoggy, so she gets a box to review and a box to giveaway to her friends once a month.

We have loved all of the PetBox orders we've received so far. April's PetBox also has a lot of interesting items in it. Some I have heard of before and have wanted to try. Some of the products are new to us.

Set Your Pet Up For Success | #HillsPet Weight Loss Success Stories

Dieting can be challenging for many pet parents and their furry companions. I've seen firsthand just how frustrating it can be trying to help a pet lose weight in order to live a healthier lifestyle. Struggling with your dog or cat's weight loss is not only frustrating at times, but heartbreaking to watch as well.

#HillsPet Weight Loss Success Stories

I've already talked about Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution food for cats and dogs a little bit last month, but today I'm sharing a real weight loss success story so you can see for yourself how much having an overweight pet can affect both of your lives. 

This story is about a dog named Bear. Bear weighed nearly 150 pounds and was unable to walk. His owners at one point were keeping him on a tarp and cleaning up any messes he made there since he couldn't walk outside to go to the bathroom. 150 pounds is a lot of weight to carry around. I know if my dog weighed that much, I wouldn't be able to help her go potty outside.

Popular Cockatoos That Are Kept as Pets

When I think of a Cockatoo, an image of a large white parrot with yellow feathers popping out of his head comes into my mind. This is one type of Cockatoo, but did you know that the list of Cockatoo species is actually pretty extensive? All together, there are over 40 different species of in the Cockatoo family.

I had an idea for this post, mostly because I love Cockatoos. They are one of my favorite types of birds. I've never kept a Cockatoo as a pet before, but have worked with many different types at the veterinary hospital. Compared to other pet birds, they are very sweet and loving. Especially with their owners. The bond between a Cockatoo and his person is usually very strong.
