Blake is now a painting!

I can’t believe the amazing customer service chewy.com offers!  Not only did I receive a hand-written thank you card after my first order, but now they send me this awesome painting of Blake as a thank you for mentioning them on Seattle Dog Spot!  I have never had such a great experience with any other company before; they rock!  After my first seamless order with them, I knew they were the place to buy all my pet-related items and now I’m even more convinced.  Be sure to check them out!

All the Comforts at Home

For my July post at Seattle Dog Spot, I chose to write about the various things I’ve done for Blake at home to make his senior years for comfortable.  Hope my ideas inspire you to make changes for your aging dogs too!  It’s been a great first year here in Seattle with Blake and I’m happy that he’s been enjoying himself too.  I like to think it’s the little things that make his daily life better and surely a homemade orthopedic dog bed doesn’t hurt either!  I’d love to hear what you’ve done to add a little comfort to your senior dogs environments.

One year anniversary

Wow!  I can’t believe that it’s been a year today since Alex and I moved out here.  It has gone by so fast.  One this day last year, we pulled up in front of our apartment, met the neighbors upstairs and introduced them to the dogs.  Unpacked the car and ate Pagliaccis’ pizza for dinner, which we also had tonight as well to celebrate our anniversary!  It’s been a roller coaster of a ride, but an exciting one at that and we are so happy to be here in the Northwest.  Who knew that we would ever have moved out here, but we’re here and loving every minute of it.  Alex’s job at UW is going great and mine at Youth in Focus is too.  We are still house hunting to find the perfect place to settle in at and the dogs are better than ever.  We’ve made some good friends over the past year and are looking forward to many more.  Thanks, Seattle, for being the change we wanted and a great place to live!  Here’s my blog post from this day last year.  It’s been fun to re-read about our adventures.
