Best of Pawsitively Pets 2015

Happy New Year! 2016 is officially here and as I usually do at the end of each year, I am taking a look back at 2015. The year 2015 was pretty good for me. I welcomed Callie and Blaze the Betta into our pet family. Jack and Gus celebrated their 1st Gotcha Day with us. Shiner turned 12 years old and is still going strong, despite having an abscessed tooth a few months ago.


As for the Pawsitively Pets blog, it continues to grow and expand. Of course, I have been thinking of where I want to continue to take Pawsitively Pets. After much thought, my favorite part of this blog is having fun so I want to make sure I continue to focus on that. I also enjoy making videos (as long as my video editor cooperates) so I'm sure I'll continue with my YouTube videos and hopefully grow my channel some more.

As is tradition, I've dug up some of our favorites and "bests" from 2015!


Most Visited Blog Posts of 2015

While many of my most popular blog posts were written long ago, here are the top 5 most popular blog posts that were written in 2015. 

  1. 4 Dangers of Letting Your Pet Eat Bugs - An occasional bug here and there might be OK, but there are a few hidden dangers you may not have known about. 
  2. Does My Dog's Neck Hurt? - Shiner hurt her neck this year and thankfully had a very speedy recovery. It's quite common for dogs to suffer neck injuries. 
  3. What Should You Do If Your Dog Gets Stung By a Bee? - A large beehive near my home prompted me to refresh myself on what to do if my pets were stung. 
  4. 9 Ways to Hide Your Pet's Medicine - Sometimes, our pets are too smart for their own good. 
  5. Why Won't My Cat Purr? - At the time that I wrote this, Callie almost never purred. However, I am happy to report that she purrs much more frequently now.

  14. Have a happy New Year! My favorite dog breed is Kintamani Dog, an Indonesian dog breed. I have a fascination toward them, maybe because they resemble a white wolf (in some ways) or even due to their very unique appearance and exoticism. And, principally, because I have two females. Her names are Bali (the reason is obvious, you don't think? Hahaha) and Winnie. They're very smart and attractive dogs! I bought them from BalendinTov Kennel, who's situated in Bandung, and we took them to my city, here on Brazil. If you want, there's the kennel phone: 62-0818 645 930 and their email is: balendintov@yahoo.com and the breeder name's Beatrice Prihatna
    I hope that it I'll be utile to yours

  17. Happy New Year! That's an interesting topic about cats that won't purr. Both my cats purr when they are being affectionate or when they wants something so I'd never really thought about a cat that doesn't purr.

    Your site is looking very nice!
