Thirteen Years Ago Today


Happy Birthday, Pablo! My wonderful pug turns thirteen today–he’s officially a teenager! Looking back at his puppy photos brings back so many memories–like how he would follow me everywhere, even right into the shower, and how he would bark at me whenever I scolded him–as if I were the one doing something wrong!

K is away on a business trip so Pablo and I will spend a quiet day together. He already got his birthday present, an orange harness, and he looks very dashing in it. (Pictures to follow in a later post.) We went on an extra long walk on this lovely warm spring day and it was nice to finally see so many trees and flowers finally in bloom. And tonight we will celebrate with a birthday candle in a Frosty Paws.

April Showers


No, this isn’t an April Fools joke. The above contraption actually exists, and I need to get one for Pablo. As readers of this blog know, he’s never been one for inclement weather so a coat that keeps the raindrops out of his eyes is ideal for him.

The Push Pushi raincoat is just one of the many innovative pet products from the Global Pet Expo that was held in Orlando, Florida last month. If you’d like to see more super-cool ideas–an anxiety-reducing shirt anyone?–check out this New York Times article:
