I teased you a little yesterday with my selfies but it really wasn’t that hard to guess where I was. Most of you figured out that I was getting more car time in preparation for my trip to the BlogPaws conference in June. Mom had errands and it was a beautiful, sunny day — purrfect for a family outing. Well, not the whole family.
As you may remember, I haven’t been that happy riding in the car. Mom thought maybe it was the carrier I didn’t like so she had decided to try the larger … Continue reading
As you may know, mom will be attending her second BlogPaws conference in June. Last year, even though she had planned to take me, she ended up going by herself. My harness training just didn’t go as planned!
For this year’s conference, she really wants me to go with her so she had planned to work diligently on my harness training and getting me out in public. So far, the weather has put a damper on that. It has been raining almost steadily since Christmas. Mom says rain won’t make me melt but she wants my trips out to be pleasant.
On Monday, mom got out the treats and I ran through my tricks a couple of times, so far sit, high five and up. Then the harness went on. No problem. We do this often.
I followed mom around for a while … Continue reading
Mom has really been trying to work with me to get me ready for the BlogPaws conference in June. I’ve been wearing my harness a lot but what I need to work on now is getting out of the house and around people. The problem is, it hasn’t stopped raining, and even snowing, in weeks. When we have one or two days without rain, mom has outdoor chores to do and then it starts raining again. Mom says we can’t complain though. After four years of drought, we need all the rain and snow we can get.
A couple of weeks ago, mom finally decided to take me out on a … Continue reading
I first read about the 2016 Pet Blogger Challenge, hosted by GoPetFriendly.com, a few days ago on Facebook. I answered some of these questions in my Looking Back at 2015 — My Tops and Favorites post, but it never hurts to take another look at things. I missed posting this in time to join the linkup (See #10!) but thought you might like to read the answers anyway.
1. How long have you been blogging? And, for anyone who is visiting for the first time, please give a quick description of the subject of your blog.
I started blogging in August of 2014. Mom was doing more educational writing on three other blogs. She was having health issues and wanted to lighten things up a bit. I mostly blog about my daily life with my two … Continue reading
Good morning friends. Can you see I have my harness on? Mom has been making me wear it a lot lately. She says I have to step up my game so that I’ll be ready for BlogPaws next June. I was so NOT ready for this past BlogPaws in Nashville.
I’m much more comfortable in my harness now. I don’t try to run and hide when I see it come out anymore because I know I will get treats after it is on. It still feels a little funny but I’m OK with it for the most part.
Mom says the next step is to go for some rides in the car. That should … Continue reading
A while back, quite a while back (mom blushes with embarrassment!), my friend, Phoebe, over at 15andmeowing, had a giveaway to celebrate their one year blogoversary. Now, mom never wins anything, but I must be a lucky cat because I won this pawsome giveaway! The prize was a hand-made-with-love catnip mat and 12 crochet cat toys – one for each month they had been blogging.
The package arrived right after mom got back from BlogPaws but she wouldn’t let us open it. She said she was busy catching up and didn’t have time to do it justice right then, whatever that means. Oh, she let us check out the package, but that is as far as it went. We could tell even then that it was going to be good!
Then the next weekend was Horse Expo and more catching up. Finally, yesterday, she let us … Continue reading
Even though we eat homemade raw food, mom is always looking for healthy raw diet alternatives. When mom thought I might come to BlogPaws, it was one of her main concerns. My raw food has to be refrigerated and I like it warm. How would she do that in the hotel room? A freeze dried food like the one Primal makes would have been a perfect solution here. It is lightweight and could be mixed with warm tap water in the hotel room. Mom was so busy talking to the folks at Primal that she forgot to get a picture.
Another solution for my sensitive tummy could also be just the … Continue reading
