In addition to adequate food and water, shelter, and lots of love, you’ll need to provide your pets with playful stimulation in order to ensure their ongoing health and happiness. A dog or cat can sit at home all day and wait for you to get home from work (they’ll probably sleep most of the time you’re gone), but once you arrive they’ll want to interact, and they’ll likely have a lot of pent-up energy to get out, as well....

You might think that dogs will eat just about anything and they will if you let them. However, there are a number of plants that can actually lead to some serious health effects if consumed by your family pooch.

Dogs can even be trained for complicated jobs, like firefighting, bomb sniffing, guidance for the seeing-impaired and some are even taught to smell diseases way before they can be diagnosed by a doctor. Best of all, most dogs don’t mind being compensated with lots of treats. And it’s not at all true what they say about old dogs not... [Continue Reading]

When watching NBC’s hit series “The Voice” I love watching the judges interact. Each is so talented in his or her own right that it is difficult to choose a favorite – or at least it was. Once I saw Cee Lo Green appear onscreen with a fluffy white cat in his arms, my heart melted. Who doesn’t love cats? They are the perfect pet! Of course, that is probably what prompted Cee Lo to give his cat the name Purrfect, because... [Continue Reading]
Children get very excited with all of the fun filled things in their brightly colored basket and will run through the house like a whirlwind, possibly losing Easter basket prizes as they go.
