Thank You Sheraton For Taking Our Pets During Hurricane Irma

I was not planning on having to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma. That all changed a week ago Friday morning when I received an alert with an Immediate Evacuation order for the zone I live in on the west coast of Florida. As many of you know, I was a full time RV'er after the death of my husband for a couple of years. I could no longer travel in my motor home and decided to settle in Weeki Wachee, Florida.

What's The Correct Collar For Your Dog?

I have been deciding what I want my contest give-away to be this month and have settled on the idea that a collar would be a great thing to give away this month.

Keep Your Doggy Safe During The Holidays

Many of you know my Belle was born blind. She was born with no retinas, so we have always been more vigilant about her. The holidays have always presented a special challenge. Our mantra to guests in our home has always been "watch out for Belle because she cannot watch out for you". This has been a kind of a challenge for people not used to being around her because of her coloring. She is a chocolate Yorkie so she blended right in with our brown blend carpet. Now that I am living in my RV and my flooring looks...

Dog People Are The Best People

Dog People Are The Best People

In my opinion, dog people are the best people. It has been my experience that people who love dogs tend to be very caring people. The dog people I know tend to be very friendly, open to new people and experiences, especially if their dog is by their side. Having been a full time RV'er and now living in an RV park, people out walking their dogs will almost always stop to chat. They will introduce themselves and are more than happy to tell you all about their doggy. These stops to talk about our dogs have led to some...
