(Credit goes to … Continue reading Maryland woman gives sheltered 26-year-old cat a new home
Good on this city!! Just goes to show there is no such thing as a bad dog breed. Just bad and negative training, neglect...pretty much anything involving a human. Dogs (all animals really) aren't born "bad". The sooner we can move past the stigma of "this dog breed is violent and aggressive", the better we … Continue reading After Decades of Breed Specific Legislation, Iowa City Lifts Pit Bull Ban

I can't really come up with something more horrifying than losing a loved one, be it pet or family member. But that's what happened to a gentleman who lived close to my parents, earlier in December 2017.

I had never heard of such a thing until it became a recent topic of discussion among Pet Sitters International members in our Facebook forum. Some people said they dye their own dog's fur and it … Continue reading Do or Dye

But with our busy schedules and long days it can often be difficult to find the time or motivation to fit in 30 minutes of daily exercise time. During the days of my corporate life when my … Continue reading Daily Dog Walks
Podcasts. Everyone listens to them. It's a great distraction from monotonous activity like long driving commutes, walking on the treadmill, Thanksgiving supper (Hi Mom!!)... So we thought we would start our own! Granted, neither one of us has any experience with Podcasts. But with a glass of wine, and the microphone on...it turned out pretty … Continue reading The La Pawtite Pawd-cast!
Although we at La Pawtite care for pets of all kinds and sizes, we sometimes need to explain why we focus on small dogs. The answer is pretty simple - because our babies are small and that's what we've grown accustomed to ever since adopting them. Me, I'm simply a "dog person" not a "big … Continue reading Small Dogs

To a lot of people, Halloween is one of those special times of year. The days before October 31st instantly bring up thoughts of Autumn weather, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, giant leaf piles waiting to be destroyed. Every year, we make a special trip to a local pumpkin patch to grab some of those giant monsters, … Continue reading Family Fun Times – Halloween Pumpkin Patch!
We've all been there - slapping the "OFF" on the alarm, groggily getting out of a nice warm bed while managing to not disturb the better half and pups. It's time to start the day (going to the gym, going to work, etc.), and it's one of the hardest parts of my morning routine. Dogs … Continue reading Unconditional
