Dog is My Co-pilot: Does Your Dog Do This?

IMG_3016Has your dog repurposed your arm-rest into their personal chin rest? My dog Zazou earned the nickname "Mr. GPS" since he loves to serve as assistant navigator whenever we go for car rides.

However, last week he fell down on the job a bit, as he completely lost interest in our destination and chose to engage in a bit o' shut-eye  instead while listening to the rhythmic sounds of Lana Del Rey.

Has your dog designated themselves as your personal co-pilot?  Share your stories in the comments below!

Awww, Bless His Heart

Fresh from the Simple Minds, Simple Pleasures Department, this cute bulldog could solve the world energy crisis if only we could find a way to harness his power. Looks like a certain roly-poly someone needs to add a bit more brain healthy food to his diet?

I Never Liked Fortune Cookies

The pseudoprognostications, trite sayings, and the randomly generated lottery numbers just never incentivized me to waste my appetite on them.  Especially when Crab Rangoon is on the menu.  
And yet for some curious reason, while noshing at a unremarkable Chinese restaurant in New England close to the finish line of our walk, I cracked one open and ironically this was what was inside.

I didn’t share it with anyone then, I just taped it to the inside of a steel business card holder that my sister-in-law gave me years ago in which I housed my ID and other important emergency info throughout the duration of our walk.

But tonight is the 4 year anniversary of when we launched 2 Dogs 2000 Miles and this fortune cookie is what I reflect on most.

I am thankful for everyone who helped us along the way.  More so for those who have stuck with us throughout it all and this announcement is for you.

I have begun the planning phase for our second 2 Dogs 2000 Miles walk. This time it’s across Japan from the Southern most main island, Kyushu to the Northernmost, Hokkaido: Cape Sata to Cape Soya with the fuzzybutts, of course.  

We will walk the ends of the world until and when it’s cancer free.

Maxed Out >> Maxi Skirts

It’s funny.  When it comes to dresses, I like them short. Really short. (I mean, have you seen my wedding dress??)  But lately, when I go to put on a skirt, it’s almost always long.  Sometimes it’s just to the calves; other times it’s full-on skimming the ground.  There’s just something about a maxi skirt, especially in the springtime.  It’s like the marriage of classic and casual style.  Sophistication and relaxation.  The skirts above are some of my current favorites.  (And one is from my own clothing line.  Can you spot it?)

1. Field of Vision Skirt, Anthropologie
2. Lady Grace Pleated Skirt, Threadsence
3. Arya Maxi Skirt (layered as strapless dress over skirt), Mountains of the Moon
4. Contrasting Denim Skirt, Free People
5. Green Pleated Maxi Skirt, Yigal Azrouel
6. Yellow Pleated Maxi Skirt, Christian Siriano
7. Halsten Heritage Pleated Maxi Skirt, Neiman Marcus
8. Cheap Monday Maxi Skirt in orange, ASOS

What are your thoughts on long skirts for spring?

And on a completely different note, I just have to share the fact that this could quite possibly be the most excited I’ve ever been on a Monday.  That’s because after three consecutive weeks, my husband is finally coming home from the band’s winter tour!  They have been gone for this long a few times in the past, but I’ve always made a trip to go see him.  I wasn’t able to this time, so it’s officially been the longest we’ve ever gone without seeing each other.  It hasn’t been easy, and I can’t even put into words how much I’m looking forward to having him here for a couple of weeks and thus having a little bit of “normal” back in my life.  Since we weren’t able to celebrate his birthday together, I’m going to grab dinner from his favorite restaurant and have it waiting here for him when he walks in the door tonight. Awww… 

Last Thursday would have been Bubby dog‘s 16th birthday.  I’d intended on writing a special post about him, but I felt very sad, and decided to give myself a little time.  I’m glad I did, because I came up with some initial plans for a little project in his honor that will help other dogs and pets.  I think it’s going to be really cool, and you’ll be able to get involved too!  I’ll make an announcement once I get everything into place.

Tips for Feline Heart Health

Here is a excerpt from our Life’s Abundance blog. It’s a very informative article by Dr. Jane Bicks on how to look for signs of heart health problems in our cats.

“When I consider what I like most about cats, I’d probably say it’s their mysterious demeanor. I never know why one of my cats will suddenly pounce on my computer keyboard, why another might hide for hours on Wednesdays, or what could possibly be going on inside the head of one who spends time shadow boxing in my bathroom. Just as their motivations and desires remain secret to us, they are also, unfortunately, masters at concealing any illnesses they might have. A cat can have a medical problem and even the most watchful owner may not realize it until the condition becomes full-blown.

An unhealthy heart is an all too common feline problem, regardless of age. The good news is that heart conditions are best treated when found early. Additionally, early detection and treatment also give felines opportunities to live relatively healthy and happy lives. All you have to do is be proactive by routinely giving your cat a quick home-health examination. Don’t worry – it’s easy, fun and can even save a life.”

Read the entire blog post on cat heart health for more information and how to properly examine your cat.
