Psssst…. Can you feel it?  Spring’s just around the corner!

We just had to share this spring-fever-inspired, pet-friendly list of ideas to welcome our fave season:

  • Keep Kitty fit & entertained, whether she’s outdoor enjoying the delightful weather, or she’s indoor-only.  Check out our post:  “Let’s Play!”
  • Spring brings puppies & kittens!  If you’re considering adopting a pet of any age, ask us for help, proactively.  We’ll guide you in choosing the right pet for you & your family.  If you just adopted a pet (of any age), we’ll help the transition go smoothly for all, including resident pets.  Watch the lovely video, “To everyone who loves dogs“, from our post on the spirit of adoption.  Start training now to enjoy the rest of your year with a happy, well-mannered furry family member!
  • Our past spring posts are packed with sweet videos & helpful seasonal safety tips.  We’ve covered gardening with pets, Easter safety tips, spring cleaning, avoiding tick bites, flea prevention, skunk season,  & swimming dogs.  Whew!
  • ‘Tis the season for road trips!  Visit three of our fave pet-travel blogs:  Dog Jaunt is for folks traveling with small dogs.  DogTrekker finds the “best places in Northern California for you and your pup to stay, eat, hike, swim and play”.  Go Pet Friendly personalizes your trip according to your destination, number of people, and number/type/size of pets.  Use their road trip planner to locate pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, camping & activities along your route.  Brilliant!

Speaking of road trips, we took an epic one up the northern CA coast for some R&R with our pal, Rusty.  (He blogged about it.)  Enjoy this adorable, spring-like scene that we encountered along the way.  Warning:  Our spring fever is contagious!

Valentine’s Day has us thinking about all the animals we’ve loved. 

We’d like to share an article inspired by Charlie, the most amazing cat we’ve ever met.  He came to us as a sickly stray, and moved right into our home & hearts with pure grace.  Keep in mind that it was a full house with 2 other cats and a dog.  So perhaps “grace” is an understatement of the ease with which Charlie joined our family.  Anyway, we felt so blessed to have Charlie in our lives that we wrote about the joys of adopting an adult cat in this article.

And, as always, we’re so grateful to have our miniature poodle, Rusty, in our lives.  He’s another example of how wonderful it can be to adopt an adult pet.  He’s been blogging about it since he came to live with us.  Check out Rusty’s Dog Blog!

Visit your local shelter or rescue. Lots of loving dogs & cats are just waiting to charm their way into your home. We can help your adoptions go smoothly.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you & your pets (even the prickly ones!)
