Happy St Patrick's Day or Too Much Tuesday

As you can see after eating some parsley potatoes and going to Petsmart Nala had a full day and is fast asleep! Hope everyone had a happy St. Patrick's day!


Good night all........

Freezing Friday

So we weathered another snow storm in the metro NY-NJ area that left us with about 8 inches of the white stuff! Today is sunny but freezing outside with temps around 17 F. Spring is just weeks away so I will keep that in mind as I clean the snow off my car and slip on the ice in my drive way!

Apparently this latest precipitation does not get Nala discouraged! New snow to play in and a clean canvas to pee on!

I found an article on someone who was inspired by the cold weather and how to keep her dogs ears warm in the freezing temps. It resulted in very innovative and chic head wear for your bullie!


Remember to turn your clocks forward this Saturday night and change your batteries in your smoke alarms!

Think spring!

Snow ...Let it Go!

Hello folks...it's another snowy day here in Jersey! Arghh! Well spring is a mere 20 days off and temperatures are suppose to moderate so winter is on the run! (Sure!)Though I must say Nala is enjoying the snow! She loves to run and dive into it and end up wiggling on her back, legs going every which way in a most unladylike fashion!

Word came out the other day concerning the dog food Beneful made by Purina. Supposedly dogs that were getting ill or dying had a common link as far as consuming this dog food and a class action law suit was filed against Purina. It's been disclosed that Beneful contains propylene gylcol a chemical used to maintain moisture in food but you may be familiar with it as a component in anti-freeze! 

Evidently the FDA is okay with limited amounts of this stuff in dog and human food alike though some vets are not that alarmed by this commonly used additive. I noticed today while shopping in CVS that a mouthwash I picked up had PG in it!! ( Gargling with anti-freeze!? ) I would refrain from feeding my dog any food containing this chemical just to be safe.Read the labels carefully on what you buy and make an educated choice. Just saying folks!
