10 Ways To Be An Eco-Friendly Dog Owner

*Ad

As a pet owner, I am always conscious of what we purchase, what waste we produce (or they produce) and how even our beloved animals also come with a carbon footprint – yes, that’s right even our pets contribute towards global warming.

Puppy-Proofing Your Home

*collaborative post

Thinking of getting a puppy? Creating a safe environment for your pooch is essential – puppies are very curious and will have a go at chewing everything in those first months. Not only do you want to protect your dog from your home, but you also want to protect your home from your dog, so as well as eliminating hazards, it could be worth finding a way to protect valuables.

Here are just ideas on how you can puppy-proof your home…

Pets — should they be in your bedrooms or not?

*Collaborative Post

Do you have a cat or a dog? Do you let your dog or cat sleep in your bedroom or on your bed? You are certainly not alone, as a survey commissioned by leading pet insurer Animal Friends found that nearly half of owners sleep with their pets. My dog has always slept in, or next to my bed and she is now 15 years old. I personally have no issue with sharing a bedroom with a pet because I view them as part of the family.

 

So, do you think it is good idea to welcome your pet into your bedroom? Fitted bedroom specialists DM Design has analysed the arguments both for and against this decision: Continue reading “Pets — should they be in your bedrooms or not?”

Our New Year Trip To Exmoor

We decided to escape the parties and fireworks this New Year mainly due to our elderly dog who is no longer able to cope with the noises, which gave us the perfect opportunity to retreat to the Exmoor countryside with the family and enjoy some quality time before the rat race of work and routine had to begin again.

After hunting around on the internet I was over the moon when hubby found a little cottage in an idyllic setting which allowed dogs (and because my sister forgot to find somebody to look after her pet, we also took a hamster!) After a three-hour drive I was very happy to see this as we pulled up.

Children and Dogs

We have a family dog. She has been around a while but was my first baby so when we added a new addition in the form of a human baby it got me to thinking…

As I walked my lovely old girl today in the drizzle I started to reminisce about all the places we have been together, how many walks there have been and wondering how many will be left. I got Molly when I was 19 and she was 7 months old. She already had her name Continue reading “Children and Dogs”
