Crazy Dog Stuff

Pitbulls are NOT Mean

If you have ever owned a pitbull, you know what I’m talking about.  They are some of the sweetest, most lovable companions you could ever have.  But they are always maligned in the media, because of the irrational fear people have of them.

But it’s ALWAYS true that a dog is a reflection of it’s owner.  Always.  It’s not the pit bulls fault that they are owned by morons who want “mean” dogs.

Unfortunately, politicians like to take advantage and introduce Breed Specific Legislation, which can negatively impact otherwise law-abiding citizens and their dogs.  This is why I am thankful for a new website that is all about pitbulls.

Educate yourself and look at some precious pictures!


Apartment Living

We now live in an apartment since I had to move to Louisville for a job change.

An apartment.  With two dogs.  Dogs that are still puppies at heart.

You can imagine…

It makes for some interesting situations.  And life is different when you just can’t let them out in the back yard, but have to walk with them through rain, sleet, snow, tornado, earthquake, volcano eruption….I’m not being melodramatic here at all.

Dog food For Health

Beware of dog allergies.  If you feed your dog the wrong food, that might be the reason they are getting sick.  Our dog was throwing up about twice a week.  We changed dog food, and now he’s fine.

But it may be deeper.  You’re dog could have an allergy.  If that’s the case, it may be necessary  to get dog food that doesn’t trigger allergies.  Or the fancy term, “hypoallergenic dog food”.  These have less chemicals, and usually or made of just one type of protein/meat to help avoid reactions.  Many dog food manufacturers have their own brands of hypoallergenic dog food, so do some research.

It might take a little testing to find one that your dog doesn’t react too.   Of course, there is always the option of making your own food for your pet.  It’s a lot easier than it sounds.  Most recipes are quick and easy, and require very little ingredients.  Sometimes they will even be cheaper in the long run.

You can of course ignore this post if your dog isn’t perpetually sick like ours was 🙂

Too Much Excitement

When I come home, one of our dogs (Kaiah)  get’s so excited it seems she has a mini-siezure.  It’s strange…but it’s almost as if she move SO MUCH that she get’s paralized.  It’s so funny and never get’s old.

The other older dog (only by about a year or so) always runs and get’s a toy and sits down.  Such opposites.  Yet both are very gratifying when I get home.  And thanks to the recent study on the chemical released in the brain when you are near your dog, I guess we understand why now.

Our kitchen floor is constantly soaked, because our dogs can’t seem to keep their mouth closed.  How about yours?

Fun With Embroidery

We’ve been having fun with embroidery, and of course we want to do something related to dogs.  There are many free patterns you can get.  And of course, if you’re crazy, you can also make embroidery for your dogs to wear.

If you’re double crazy, you can do all of this by hand.  But if you’re like us, you can use an embroidery machine.  We’ve been using a brother embroidery machine and it’s working out great.

2 Dogs

We have two dogs now.  One really old (13+ years) and one still a puppy (1 year old).  While the old one stumbles and slips on her bad left hip, the pup does her best to try and knock her down.  Ok, maybe not on purpose, but that is the end result.

The pup just wants to play and is confused why the old maid never wants to.

We have had to keep them seperated and out at different times.  Sigh.
