I’ve fallen behind on blogging again. My goal to post three times per week didn’t happen this week. I think it’s been all those medical posts, they just exhaust me. Couple that with an increase in travel time with my new job, and some days, I just don’t have the energy.
Thankfully, the amazing bloggers below have been able to stay in the game. Check out picks for this week’s showcase and let me know how I did.
8 Dog-Friendly Plants that Repel Bugs by Jan at Wag’N Woof Pets – Woof! If you have dogs (why do I say that? Why would you be reading this blog if you didn’t have dogs?) you know that bugs bring all manner of threat and illness to your dogs. When dealing with the nasty insects (fleas, ticks, mosquitos, black flies) you need every weapon in your arsenal to defeat these pesky buggers. Why not landscape your yard, and protect your pets all at the same time. If you’re looking to do just that, Jan’s post will get you started. The bonus, the plants are all safe for your dog.
A Pet Groomer’s Guide to Cleaning Dog Ears by Cathy at I Love My Chi – Long-eared or short-eared, it doesn’t matter. If you have a dog, it’s important to keep their ears clean. Unless you have money to burn (are you looking to adopt a child? I’m older, but I promise I’ll be a good kid and take care of you in your senior years; ask my dogs, they’ll vouch for me.) Odds are you will need to clean your dog’s ears yourself. How and how often are the tricky questions, but Cathy, a pet groomer has the answers. Plus, there’s a video which shows you how to acclimate your dogs to ear cleaning, especially if they have concerns. There’s also a nifty little tip for a natural solution to assist in keeping those ears clean!
Big Dog Mom’s Most Glaring Weakness Revealed and it Will Surprise You by Big Dog Mom at Big Dog Mom – Here’s the surprise to me. Her weakness isn’t for big dogs! Alright, I take that back. Of course she has a weakness for big dogs, she HAS big dogs! I actually found her weakness a little on the funny side, because she does something very similar to something I do. (And it’s not the big dog thing again!) But that’s all I’m going to tell you, but after you read her post, you can guess in the comments. 🙂
