Adopting a Puppy or a Grown Dog During Quarantine

Just over a year ago, we lost our Taffy girl. A few months later, our family felt like we were ready to invite another dog into our home, and we adopted Trixie!

She is definitely a bright spot in our household, so as more people are restricted to their homes during troubling times, it’s no wonder that there’s been a surge in pet adoptions! Dogs have long been man’s best friend and a source of comfort and unconditional love.

How to Care for Your Dog Organically

Did you know that half of all dogs are now diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life? Anyone who has ever lost a dog will tell you of the heartache and bereavement they felt at the passing of their beloved ‘family member’. When we last our Taffy girl early last year, we knew it was only a matter of time until we opened our family to another canine.

After a few months, we visited a local animal control location and took home a new family member. This is Trixie!

She actually looks kinda small in this photo, but Trixie is an almost-80-pound pure-bred Chocolate Labrador Retriever. She is literally our third toddler. (Because why not?!) And her health is just as important to us as any other member of our family.

New Product Review – Liquid Longevity!

A few weeks back, we went through nasty round of coughs at our house. My hubby and I knocked ours out pretty quickly, but it took a little bit more power for the girls. At just 15 months old, once theirs started to settle in their chest, I got them to the doctor. Antibiotics aren’t my preference, but neither is RSV, so it was a round of antibiotics for each of them, and then I kicked in the probiotics for everyone!

If you’re not familiar with probiotics, here’s a quick explanation: Probiotics are good bacteria that are either the same as or very similar to the bacteria that are already in your body. Things like antibiotics kill off those good bacteria in your body, and then your body functions at a diminished capacity as a result. When probiotics are introduced, they promote a healthy immune system and healthy bowels! And we ALL could use more of that!

Keeping foods rich in probiotics and taking probiotics after antibiotics are completed have always been regular practices in our household…or for the humans in our household, that is. So when I discovered there a was a probiotic for DOGS, I was, first of all shocked.

If you haven’t met her yet, meet Taffy the White Doggie.

We adopted Taffy from the SPCA a few years ago. Taffy is part of our family! She travels with us. She celebrates with us. She plays with us. She exercises with us.

So finding out that I could keep her healthy just like I do the rest of us, well, I was pretty stoked!

Mommy decided to let me take over the blog for today, since she’s been pretty busy. Actually, we’ve ALL been pretty busy around the house lately. The reason? I have two new baby sisters!

Well, they’re getting kinda big now. But not too big. Seems like they’re growing fast, though. I’m starting to wonder if I’m gonna get chased here pretty soon. Yeah, probably. But for now, I’ve been trying to help where I can.
