What would your pup do for Purina® Beggin’ Strips®?

Ginger Beggin‘ Strips® tricks

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Purina. All opinions are 100% mine. Our Ginger dog may not be able to talk but she sure knows how to show us when she likes something! That includes her favorite treats. Ginger does the "bucking hippo" dance when she's really excited about a […]

Wordless Wednesday – Snowy Whiskers #ww

snowy-dog-Ginger-thumb

These snowy whiskers kill me! I just love watching Ginger dog and KiKi play together in the snow, they’re so cute! And seeing the snowflakes catch in their whiskers is even cuter! Oh, Ginger Dog! You are such a sweetheart! I can’t believe you’ll be 10 years old this year. Thanks for being my roly-poly […]

Wordless Wednesday – Evil Tree Kitty #ww

You would think she was all sweet and innocent.  I laughed my butt off at this photo of Kiki! She looks so funny attacking the tree and was so into it that she almost fell out, lol!

It’s a Great Day for Ginger to be a Dog! #iLoveMyK9 #CBias

Ginger thinks Milk Bone Trail Mix is yummy

UPDATE 01/16/2012: While my dog didn’t suffer any noticeable injury from eating Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky or Griller treats, I want my readers to be aware of a recent recall and the fact that a fellow bloggers’ pup had a severe reaction to Milo’s treats. MILO’S KITCHEN® VOLUNTARILY RECALLS CHICKEN JERKY AND CHICKEN GRILLERSHOME-STYLE DOG […]

My funny rabbit eating a fresh spring carrot

We have the cutest, sweetest little bunny rabbit named Aggie. Our sweet little girl will be three this year, can you believe it?! Aggie lives outside but she is spoiled rotten by everyone in our family. She gets fresh grass picked for her, little bits of celery and lettuce scraps. Delicious rabbit food and alfalfa […]

A car ride with Ginger Grant – Wordless Wednesday

Ginger car ride

I haven’t posted a picture of our Ginger Dog in so long! She’s still her adorable fat self. She’s just too darn cute for me to handle these days, the older she gets the more I give in to her. Every time I try to go anywhere she sits there and stares at me — […]

I despise my carpeting… just sayin’

Ginger carpet roll

Lately I have been noticing a funky, slightly doggy, smell in our home. With summer days of children being home 24/7, chickens running around the yard, and the dog coming in and out, it’s no wonder things aren’t as fresh as they should be. When I started to notice this aroma though, I worried about […]

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Happy Ending

wild bunny

Our Ginger is a good dog  — most of the time. She knows she isn’t allowed to bother any of the other “pets” we have, and she never has. Wild things however, are another matter. She slobbers moles to death. Will chase stray cats. And birds. Toads, bees, grasshoppers. She cannot resist pouncing on anything […]

Have you ever been to a chicken yard sale?

barred rock chick in hand

Or maybe a better question would be, Are you sick of hearing about chickens yet? Sorry, can’t help it. I’m convinced every family should own a chicken… or 30. They are funny creatures, they lay eggs, they cluck, what’s not to love? {okay, they do occasionally get into things they shouldn’t, don’t let it deter […]

Help us name our new Silver Laced Wyandotte Rooster

young Wyandotte Rooster

After Mr. Puff died from old age I told myself that it would be a long long time before I felt ready to have another rooster in the coop. Telling myself something and actually doing it are two completely different things however. So when I was browsing Craigslist last week and saw a listing for […]

Life with chickens in the coop

broody hens on nest

I just thought I’d share a few minutes of chicken owning goodness with you today. Even though I’ve owned chickens off and on for most of my life, is it totally strange that I could still sit outside all day and watch my chickens run around after each other, scratching, clucking, and making us giggle? […]

Things of my backyard haven

slash the hen

In our backyard we have many things. Speckled fluffy silly things clucking cooing, a bit too curious plump and useless wings Things that offer beauty joy and softness petals bursting with good cheer sweetness tempts the buzzing drifting to my ear Things that brood with patience and even warn to stay away Things with whiskers […]
