Warning: There are some very raw emotions on this blog post that deal with Toby’s death. Today is exactly six months since Toby passed away. Six months since I watched him die right in front of me in the bed I placed him in on my Dad’s kitchen floor. It feels like it was yesterday.… Continue reading Six Months Later ….
Having a sick dog is never something any pet owner wants to think about, but unfortunately it is the reality of having these four-legged friends in our life. Toby’s knee issues and 18-month battle with lymphoma was a really unfortunate lesson in learning to take care of an ill dog.

Weird, I know! The boys really enjoyed these crunchy treats, and truth be told, so did I!… Continue reading Crispy Chicken & Oat Heart-Shaped Homemade Dog Treats

It’s almost three months since he passed away and some days it seems like it happened yesterday, and other days it feels like it was an eternity ago.
