Stevie has improved a whole lot!
She's been coming up to me to be scratched.
She's learning how fun it is to belong to a pack!
Here she is with our Penelope waiting for lights out!
Meanwhile, fall wedding season seems to be starting up!

Foster #9 Adventures in Fostering

While Mimi recovers and rehabs her knees, we have the pleasure of keeping Stevie Nicks!
She's up for adoption with

It's going to take someone very special to adopt this little girl.
Found wandering out in the desert not wanting to be touched.
She's learning that humans aren't all bad.
Very slowly.

Adventures in Fostering #8

Home less than a week and all ready for the next one!
Meet Mimi!
A beautiful little Lhasa Apso girl who needs 
knee surgery for luxating patellas.
We'll be keeping her until her surgery next week, then she'll go into recovery/rehab.

This one is a heartbreaker for sure!

Christmas IS NOT in July

Every year my customers refuse to save money by purchasing these darn stockings in July. They prefer to pay full price in Nov. and Dec.

I don't get it.

Traveling with Pets Continued.

After our fourth trip across the country with a pet, we've come up with a couple tips.
Since we're not campers, it helps to call hotels in your target area in advance. 
This way you won't get stuck scrambling for a place to stay that is pet friendly.
Google has been great for finding hotels and motels that are pet friendly but pet friendly doesn't always mean pet accommodating.
A few hotels we found will accept pets grudgingly and will charge up to $40 for each pet.
These we try to avoid.
The last hotel had no area designated as a relief area. 
I had to walk around the building to find a small patch of grass. There was no garbage to dispose of waste either.
This was quite unacceptable and I'll be sure not to stay there again. 
We sure enjoy having our dog's company while traveling and hope to continue doing so in the future!
