Fourth of July is around the corner. While it’s a great night of celebration for us humans, it can be a scary night for dogs.  Our four-legged friends left alone in yards get spooked by the fireworks and do whatever they can to escape.

Cat Wakes Me Up
Monday, April 21, 2014
Occasionally, but not often, one of our kids, ages 5 ½ and 3 ½, wakes us up in the middle of the night. Now, we don’t have a cat – our two kids plus one dog is enough activity   –...
