This post is just rather random stuff, related to dogs in one fashion or another.
We’ll start with a quick review of Doggie Day Care Murder by Laurien Berenson. Without giving away plot details, this was the final book in the 15-book series. Frankly, it was my least favorite for a host of reasons. Just to touch on one, I missed salty old Aunt Peg. No, she’s very much alive and is in the book, but she just wasn’t as involved, and that’s a shame.
I’ve had a run of lastbookintheseries blues. I didn’t care for Twilight’s Midnight Sun either. I’m not a rabid Twilight fan, so maybe it’s just me, but I’m talking about a trend in my reading. I also can’t avoid mentioning Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the formerly beloved by me Harry Potter series. I’m thinking I’m just not a series girl, but then how do you explain that I enjoyed the other books in these series?
Next up, Sissy will indeed have her own blog, to chronical her food issues. I need to (want to?) document the signs and symptoms as they change, so I may as well blog. Perhaps it will help someone else at some point too… I’d love to save even one pet owner the headaches we’ve had thus far!
And yes, the girls will still be featured here regularly. Sissy’s blog will just record the details of our adventure to digestive health for her. I don’t know how many photos it will include, or how often I’ll post.
In the interest of pet health, I want to direct you to Ice Pony Trekking’s comprehensive list of no-eats for dogs. What’s great about the list is she also explains – in plain English – why each particular food isn’t good (or is toxic) for your dog. Carrots were a shocker for us, but Gretchen won’t eat them, so we rarely offer them to the girls.
Lastly, Nichole asked for a photo of me wearing the cowl. Pardon the loud tee and the rosy-red cheeks, but it was rather nippy out. Instead, admire my little sidekick, who wasn’t at all sure what I was up to last night.
