Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate Review

We bought the Easy Step Walk Thru baby gate by Regalo to keep dogs out, but its automatic latch system is a pain for grownups with full hands.

Rosie Update #2: The Damage

Rosie Update #2: The Damage

We’re still waiting on Rosie’s lab results, but I’m glad I chose to pre-emptively treat her for masticatory muscle myositis: the damage has already been done.

Happy Birthday Pearl! 2013 Edition

Happy birthday to our Lady Moose, my youngest dog Pearl. She turns six years old today. I can’t believe it. Pearl, like the other dogs, has had a great year. The biggest improvement to her quality of life has been the raw food diet. I owe this 100% to Sedagive?, who did all of the […]

High quality plastic playing cards are more durable than their paper counterparts and can also be cleaned if they become dirty. They also shuffle a lot better, essentially always that “new card” feeling you get from paper […]

Evenflo Summit Tension Gate Review

Evenflo Summit Tension Gate Review

I love my dogs, and treat them as part of my family. I used to work from home, and they were a constant part of my life. We all slept in the same bed at night, and they had run of the whole house. Things changed, and it became hard to get a good night’s […]
