10 Tips to Help Your Dog Cope with Fireworks- 4th of July Edition
Fireworks shows and spectacles might seem like an amazing and fun way to spend the 4th of July with family and friends, but our furry four-legged pals don’t always see it that way. If you are like me I dread this time of year along with New Years Eve and other holidays where fireworks are set off both by professional companies and the local kids. Both of my pups are not fans of fireworks and I know some of my dog friends even have pups that act as if the world is ending and they end up cowering in the closet under some dirty laundry or even try to escape the house through a sliding glass door. In fact, more dogs go missing on the 4th of July than any other day of the year due to fear caused by fireworks. It is important to remember that what might sound distant is actually much louder for our dogs and so they have every right to be frightened. Plus, they have no way of understanding what the strange and loud noises are. But fret not because here are a few tips to help keep your pups calm and safe during this 4th of July holiday.

How to Deal with Your Picky Eater- Dog Edition
When we first adopted Watson almost two years ago we had no idea what we would be in store for. We soon found out that he is the pickiest of picky eaters. He was about a pound underweight which is a lot for a small dog who’s healthy body weight is six pounds and would barely eat and vomit due to an empty stomach. We worked with Watson’s vet to try and find a healthy dog food he would eat. We tried every combination of store bought kibble and wet food, but to no avail. Eventually the vet advised that we cook every meal for him and so we did for about the first year and a half, but luckily, and a little bit on accident, we discovered that he would eat a freeze dried, raw dog food. Watson still isn’t a huge fan of food, and as such we are constantly finding new ways to keep him interested in his meals. We know that there are a lot of dog moms and dads out there that are going through the same struggles and so we thought we would share just a few of the tips and tricks we have tried over the last couple of years.
