Emergency Planning: Katrina Taught Us it’s Essential

Today marks the ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. According to the ASPCA’s Olivia Melikhov, Katrina left 600,000 pets dead or homeless. Almost half of the people who did not evacuate during Katrina said it was because they didn’t think they could bring their animals with them. Yet, even after all that, 35% of you DO NOT … Continue reading

When Your Dog Needs Veterinary Care You Can’t Afford…

I told you all about Phoebe, a certified therapy dog and the mascot for Working to Halt Online Abuse, and how she needed help paying for cateract surgery, but I didn’t tell you the whole story. I’ll rectify that right now. Phoebe is an 8-year-old Siberian Husky. She spent the first three years of her life … Continue reading

Want Some Free Publicity From Me? This is What it Takes.

I’ve told you before that I get a lot of emails from people wanting me to promote their product for free. Some do more than just send a mass email; they send an email just to me, then in a day or two send a follow-up email just to be sure I got their first … Continue reading

I Think I May Be in Trouble!

My life is in peril. With my working so much lately, I’m hardly home. When I am home, I’m still working. Or sleeping. Or (heaven forbid) walking the dog. The feline contingency has decided enough is enough. I’ve noticed lately the looks of disdain and of downright anger. Even Rumpy is fearful of what may … Continue reading

It’s Bravo! and Away We Go!

So here in the Gulf Coast region, it’s time everyone should have their emergency preparedness kits and plans in place.  In areas where hurricanes are always a possibility, one must be ready to either stay or go at short notice. One thing I’ve always struggled with when planning is food. Having extra on hand if … Continue reading

Rumpy’s Tummy is Under Attack by Terrorist Bacteria!

The Rumpster is sick. Yesterday morning while we were walking, Rumpy produced a particularly stinky poo. When I got home for lunch, he’d had an accident in the laundry room. It smelled awful. I switched him to a bland diet, but he continued to have diarrhea today, and this afternoon there was blood in the … Continue reading
