Shopping is not one of my favorite things especially if I am not sure what I want to buy. It’s a good thing there are pet bloggers who make my pet shopping decisions easier by putting together gift guides. Check back on Wednesday when I’ll share some of these gift guides for you.

You Know You’re A Pet Parent When…#53 Being Thankful

petparent#53 Being Thankful

Thanksgiving gives us the chance to remember what we are thankful for and my pets are one of the biggest things one the list.

They keep me grounded.

They keep me moving forward.

They keep me learning.

They keep me meeting new friends.

They are my life and I’m thankful for everyday they are in my life.

 

Why are you thankful for your pet?

You Know You’re A Pet Parent When…#52 Taking Out The Winter Coat

 

petparent#52takeoutthecoat

 

As much as I hate to admit it,it’s that time of the year.

Time to pull out the winter clothes.

And time to see what I left in my coat pockets. I usually end up pulling out a bag or two of dog treats that I left in there. I guess you’re supposed to wash your coat before putting it away. Someday when I’m more organized….

 

What have you found in your pockets?

You Know You’re A Pet Parent When…#50

petparent#50fabric

I’ve been switching my guinea pigs over to fleece bedding so I’ve been spending more time at the fabric store these days. The last few times I’ve gotten fabric cut , the person doing the cutting has asked what I’m making. I just simply reply I’m making something for my guinea pigs and they give a nice polite head nod followed by an “Oh.” So far no one has asked what exactly I’m making. I always wonder what they’re thinking?

What kind of reaction do you get when you buy something for your pets that isn’t a pet product?
