We follow an Alaskan Malamute rescue, IAMRA, and we try to support them. My parents look there first when they're looking for a new dog, and they've been wonderful. I follow them in their private Facebook Group for prior adopters, and they put a call out for transport help this week. An elderly, blind and deaf, … Continue reading Floofer Transport!
We got Tundra's teeth cleaned, and they gave us a goo to put on weekly that would help since he won't let us brush his teeth. They said this would be easier than brushing his teeth. ... No, no it wasn't. No photos were taken since it took ALL of our hands. It needs like … Continue reading Tundra Doesn’t Like Teeth Goo
This week we brought Tundra in to have his teeth cleaned. We did this with him in 2016 or so, but at his last check up the vets were concerned about his teeth again. So we saved up (it took a few months!), set up an appointment, and brought him in this last week. I … Continue reading Poor Tundra Got His Teeth Cleaned
Crushing Disappointment! I left work early on Halloween so that I could carve our pumpkin with my husband and... it was rotten. *sniffle* So that was not an option. But I did dress up a bit, and my husband wore the cute wolf ears we got at the Great Wolf Lodge. My first two attempts … Continue reading Halloween: We Hand Out Candy But Tundra Is the Real Attraction
We drove to the apple orchards for our yearly visit! We intend to go again with one of my husband's friends, but I simply COULD NOT WAIT any longer. I brought my camera but the batteries were no good, so no photos of the trip itself, just what we picked up. We drove through some … Continue reading Our Yearly Visit to the Apple Orchards
Sunday morning, we got a call from my parents - would my husband be available to drive with my dad and their dog Mariah down to Chicago to pick up a new dog from a rescue? Of course he said yes. So I puttered around the house while the drove down and went to bed … Continue reading My Parents’ New Dog or My Husband’s Biblical Adventure
A local rescue had a Puppy Pool Paddle on Saturday, and we went! What's a Puppy Pool Paddle? In short, they rent the local pool and invite dog owners to bring their fluffers, and then they let the dogs loose to play! Here's our boy, Tundra: He was SUPER well behaved and played so hard … Continue reading Puppy Pool Paddle!
I did manage to get some photos of Tundra playing in the water from my brother, so here they are for your entertainment. And of course I don't include photos of anyone else without permission, so you don't get to see my husband. But doesn't Tundra look silly? He was having so much fun sloshing … Continue reading Tundra’s Water Pictures!
So, when we have to kennel Tundra (which is rarely - he goes to work with my husband and pretty much everywhere with us), we give him a bone with peanut butter smeared on the inside. Which may require double dipping. So we have our own peanut butter. To tell them apart, my husband draws … Continue reading Dog Sillies
My husband and I were talking recently about what the happiest periods in our lives were, and I strongly believe mine is Right Now. And then I thought about it a little more. Our parents are all alive. Our siblings are alive. We visit them often. In fact, every Friday or so we visit my … Continue reading Those Happy Golden Years
