Almost a Year

I’ve been planning to do a post to commemorate Lacey’s one year of being cancer free but a friend found out yesterday that her dog has cancer and I no longer feel like celebrating. We truly had the best experience one could have with this kind of diagnosis – 2 weeks and 2 operations later, and it was over and done with.  Most dogs aren’t that lucky, but I hope things turn out OK this time too.

Auto Safety with Pets

Traveling Tails, by Nicole Bruder, Owner of Lucy Goo Pet Sitting

Driving in Houston in the spring and summer months is an adventure to be sure. What with the warmer temperatures, the stop-and-start traffic, and the sheer magnitude of people who seem to suddenly have forgotten how to drive, most days, just getting behind the wheel is risky.  And while these things are in a constant state of change, one thing that never changes is Houstonian’s deep love for dogs.  So it always boggles my mind when I see drivers with their beloved dogs in the car without some form of animal restraint.

In the past two months alone, I’ve counted over twenty dogs riding inappropriately in cars; these dogs might be riding in owner’s laps, hanging out car windows, or standing free in truck beds.  We’re all guilty of wanting our dogs close to us, but what would happen to our dogs in the event of an accident?

Let’s face facts: dogs are smaller than humans, and in most instances, weigh less.  This means that in a crash, momentum could cause a dog’s body to become a projectile, injuring not only the dog, but also anyone near.  Without some kind of formal restraint in the car, most of these dogs will die.  Frankly that knowledge terrifies me, and I’m sure it scares many of you.  But what can we do to prevent something like this from happening?

The safest things you can do for yourself and your dog is either to harness her into the backseat, or put her into a car kennel that buckles-again, this would go in the backseat (they work great for cats and small pets, too).

Maybe you’d like to have your dog beside you in the car, but consider a car crash: your dog may never have another chance to run at the dog park, to get belly rubs, or to lick your face when you’re happy or sad.

Buckling your dog into the backseat might seem strange, but it’s no less than what we would do for our children.  We fasten their seat belts because we want to keep them safe…we don’t let them hang out the window when driving down the freeway, either.  Let’s do the same for our pets and keep them safe, too.

Commit to restraining your dogs when in the car-for their safety and for yours.

Traveling safely with pets entails not allowing them to roam freely in the car or in the back of a truck. There are many secure products on the market to make safety a priority. A good site to visit for product choices is:

Our Favorite Outdoor Pillows

By Home Contributor Paige Ronchetti

Our Favorite Outdoor Pillows // Bubby and Bean
one  //  two  //  three  //  four  //  five  //  six  //  seven

My name is Paige and I’m addicted to pillows. Pillows on the bed, pillows on the couch, pillows on my work chair–and now that we’re spending more time on the deck, pillows in the yard! What’s funny is that although it’s only June, I’ve seen some these marked down already. Seems a little premature, but I’m certainly not going to complain because if each pillow is less money, that means I can just buy more of them. (I am a hoarder.)

I do have to admit that our outdoor space is the area of the house that gets the least attention from me. It’s not intentional, I just get distracted by everything else that’s going on and the poor yard gets neglected. But! Since we’re extra happy to be out there now that the polar vortex is done bringing misery to everyone, I’ve been eyeballing some pillows to make the space a little more inviting. I found some bright colors and patterns to share with you, because I think the yard is the perfect place to get a little wild with your decor. You’re surrounded by plants and flowers when you’re outside, which are all pretty and blooming this time of year, so you might as well bring some of that pizzaz into your seating area.

I haven’t pulled the trigger on any of these yet, but I’m leaning hard toward numbers 2 and 5. What are your favorites? Do you already have some cute pillows outside? How do you like to jazz up your yard after a long, hellish winter? – Paige

Thank you Paige for sharing this gorgeous outdoor pillow round-up with us!  Paige is an Interior Designer (check out her biz, The Room Kit) and also blogs over at Little Nostalgia.  I’m thrilled to welcome her as our new Home Contributor!  You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram

There are some exciting things happening here at Bubby and Bean.  We’re expanding and have lots of fun plans in the works.  Stay tuned for a post welcoming our new contributors and revealing more details in the coming weeks!

Tennis Star Andy Murray Saves a Labradoodle from a Busy Road

They call him Andy Murray, Dog Rescuer. They also call him Andy Murray, Reigning Wimbledon Champ — probably more often Andy Murray, Dog Rescuer, like a lot more — but for the purposes of this article we’re sticking with Andy Murray, Dog Rescuer.

Because Andy Murray saved a dog. 

The championship tennis player, who owns two dogs of his own, was on his way to practice on Sunday in his car — one day before he demolished his opponent in his first Wimbledon match — when he noticed something in the road that didn’t belong there. Imagine the road is a tennis court and Andy’s steering wheel is a tennis racket — he’s seeing everything out there, every movement, every flash of light, every puff of wind. 

And Andy Murray saw a Labradoodle in the road.

Andy at home with one of his dogs.

So he parked his car, strode out into the road, stopped traffic with nothing more than his Andy Murray-ness, and coaxed the Labradoodle out of the road and into the backseat of his car, like he was coaxing Boris Becker to the net with a series of ever softer lobs before drilling one past his ear and nicking the baseline. 

(We know very little about tennis; we hope that sounded right.) 

Or, according to the Independent, he told BBC Radio Five Live, “I was driving to practice and there was a dog running along the road. I parked the car and got out and tried to stop the traffic because the dog was running towards the oncoming traffic. I ran into the road, stopped the traffic and I managed to get the dog onto the backseat of my car." 

Once in possession of the Labradoodle, Murray kept his head in the game. He drove to a nearby dog park -- he knew a dog park was nearby because he's Andy Murray; also because he takes his own dog there. He figured the dog escaped from the park. Then he called the number on the tag, and lo and behold, he discovered that that dog and his dogs are friends. It turns out they go on walks together. 

“I called the number on the tag and amazingly my two dogs walk with that dog quite a lot. I met the owner and she was happy I’d picked him up."

As expected from a Wimbledon champion, Murray brushes over the fact that getting a Labradoodle you don't know into your car after he's been scrambling through traffic is quite a feat.

“The dog was pretty strong, I don’t think he really wanted me to grab him by the collar and put him in the car," he told BBC Radio Five Live. "But thankfully the dog was fine and it’s all good.” 

We officially hope Murray wins Wimbledon this year and becomes the world champion of tennis.
