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. This man adopted a beautiful Boxer, only to have the Boxer escape and run out of the house … Continue reading A Heartwarming Tail (Tale)
The Farmer's Market! The one place where you can be fairly certain that everything available is a solid choice! In this "Muscles and Muzzles" post, we'll talk a little bit about that little slice of heaven, and how it can not only benefit your pets, but the entire household. In a classic throwback to the … Continue reading Muscles and Muzzles – The Farmer’s Market

Granted, you probably shouldn't expect Buddy or Bandit to deadlift twice their bodyweight, but a healthy pup is a happy pup! NOTE : This post will mainly talk about exercise, not nutrition or supplementation. We'll save … Continue reading The Benefits of Exercise

You can find it on iTunes and Google Play right now! Guests Holiday season means a LOT of invited (and uninvited!) guests coming to your … Continue reading La Pawtite Pawd-Cast : Holiday Special
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!
Much like the last "Family Fun Times" post, this season is absolutely perfect for a good ol' fashioned hike. The air is crisp, the temperature borders on light jacket or hoodie weather...it's a great time to be outside. As much fun as it is for us humans to be out in the great wild, our … Continue reading Family Fun Times – Hiking!
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
