The 100 Days Project is about picking something creative to do and do it for 100 days. It sounded cool, but I wasn’t sure if I would follow through. 100 days is a long time. But it never hurts to try so I decided to join in by taking a picture of at least one of my pets everyday. So far so good. We’re almost at the halfway mark.

Give Cancer The Paw- Giving Tribute

On Friday I helped my ferret Amblin over the Bridge. Like so many ferrets he developed some of the cancers that they are prone to and it just became time to let him go.

Cancer steals a lot but it can’t steal the memories of Amblin and the other pets I’ve lost to it. I’m joining in the Give Cancer The Paw Blog Hop to pay tribute to those pets that we’ve lost to cancer.

You Know You’re A Pet Parent When…#46 Walk The Line


I always have an entourage when I move from one to another. It makes me feel pretty important. Until they try to anticipate where I’m going and I almost hit the floor. It’s amazing how a 7lb cat can trip you up.

You Know You’re A Pet Parent When…#45 The Winter Coat

Who dresses better- you or your dog? [...]
