Cody and Bailey were excited when a big box arrived at our door last week with a gift for them. They weren’t expecting any mail that day. The gift came from Merrick Pet Care; inviting the dogs to sample and review their new Backcountry™ Raw Infused dog food.
I get questions all the time about at-home rehab care books for pet parents so they can help their paralyzed, injured, immobile or geriatric dogs and cats in the privacy of their own homes. I did some research and found these three great books full of practical advice.

My family welcomed little Bailey into our home just before Christmas 2014. She is the eighth puppy my husband and I have raised and the second to be crate trained. Using a crate system gives Bailey a safe den-like place that is all her own and gives me peace of mind that my puppy isn’t going to get into anything dangerous while I’m away from home. If I had known about crate training earlier, I would still have my favorite couch, kitchen chairs and a DVD collection that is probably worth a fortune.
During the month of March PetSmart® is having a sale on crates, kennels, carriers and accessories. They come in a wide variety of sizes and types that include sturdy metal, soft sided or hard plastic.

Winters are pretty mild in Las Vegas so when I see pictures on the evening news about ALL of the snow in other parts of the country, my heart goes out to the pet parents who face daily walks with their dogs. How do you do it?
Pet parents of handicapped dogs, like Hayden pictured above, are usually in worse shape, but this year they are saying, “Bring on those wintertime walks.”
