A Chill in the Air
Dr. Husband started a new rotation with a 14-hour on-call shift Friday evening. Then another Saturday evening. And the 14- to 15-hour shifts (both day and night) will continue for over a month. We knew this rotation was coming, but it’s still pretty lousy. Anyhow, since Ivan is a first-year resident (also known as an…
Benign and Cancerous Tumors on our Dog
Our dog has had benign tumors for a while, but when some new growths appeared and began growing at an alarming rate, we knew it was cancer.
Out With the Old, In With the New (toys, that is)
Babe doesn’t get excited about toys. She never has. Occasionally she’ll lay down and chew on a rubber toy, but that only happens once or twice a month. Babe is more of a food-driven pup. And when she’s not eating, she’s snoozing. It’s a nice, even life for her. Banjo is extremely toy-driven. When she’s…
Dog Days of Summer
The dog days of summer are upon us. They have been, I suppose, for just over a month now, according to the expression, and there are still a few days left. We’ve certainly noticed the heat. With a full week in the 90s, the grass turned brittle, the trees drooped and the dogs were less…
We’ve had some pretty hot days recently, temps hovering in the low to mid-90s. Our house stays pretty cool, thankfully, maintaining the chilly evening air that we let in as we sleep. First thing in the mornings, we close up all of the windows and draw some blinds. It works pretty well. We’ve only used…
Whipped Cream for the Win
I posted not too long ago about a little trip we took with Babe to Starbucks. We treated ourselves to some lovely caffeinated drinks and Babe got her own cup of house-made whipped cream. Babe loves whipped cream and, as it turns out, so does Banjo. We try not to give them too much since…
10 Things All Dog Owners Know
If you have ever had a dog, you know what I’m talking about. These guys bring so much love into my life, I can almost overlook the utter insanity that they embody… almost.
Outdoors in the Fall. Is there Anything Better?
As autumn slowly slips away, we’re helping the pups take advantage of the last golden days before winter.
No Dogs in the Kitchen
When the dogs snatch food off of the kitchen floor, they’re not always prepared for the consequences.
Cantaloupe: Turns Out It’s Good for Dogs
I mean, it’s not like we didn’t research whether or not dogs can have cantaloupe before giving it to The Pig and Banjo. Or… well, no, we didn’t. But we also didn’t give them cantaloupe. We just let them chew the rinds. And have a little taste. Off our spoons. After we were done using…
When There’s No Time to Write, There Are Always Dog Pictures
My last post was over 2 months ago. Shameful, I know. In my defense, our little home did blow up with business as we prepared for Ivan’s residency applications. And, during that time, we were able to raised $10,000 to pay for the application process. That’s a big deal! But I also realized that writing…
