Hi there! I’m Shannon and I do all the writing here. I’m a mother of 3 plus 3 fur babies. My children are AM, 19 years old, AJ, 17 years old, and CJ, 13 years old. My furry children are Allie, a 13-year-old tortoiseshell cat, Morgan, a 9-year-old poodle terrier mix (she was a shelter pup so not sure what else she is mixed with), and Luna, a 4-year-old German Shepherd.
Allie loves to spend her time sleeping and cuddling on her terms. She also loves begging for chicken, ham, and tuna. She also enjoys chirping at the birds outside and bolting out the door to roll in the grass (and eat it).
Morgan also spends much of her day sleeping, though she also enjoys barking at any person or dog that happens to walk by. Her favorite things to do are beg for anything we are eating and getting pets. She will even pet herself if you happen to leave a foot dangling off the couch.
Luna is the opposite of the other pets. She loves to play, both with her people and her toys, especially the squeaky ones. Being a German shepherd, she also loves to follow me and my kids around the house. She’ll also follow my hubby around but not as much as me and the kids (especially me and the girls).
My three furry family members are the motivation behind this blog. I want to share the pet care information that I’ve learned from caring for them with others. I’ll be focusing on pet care, training, and DIY (both food and crafts).
I learned the hard way with Luna, that certain pet care tips aren’t very clear and can cause issues if misunderstood. The biggest one I found is by following the puppy bathing advice I found in a book, I created an 85-pound dog that is terrified of baths. I plan on sharing care tips to prevent these sorts of issues.
All dogs need basic training and many can be trained to do cute and/or useful tricks. Even cats can be trained (though not Allie, she’s too lazy). I’ll be sharing basic training tips and eventually will start sharing tips to training the cute tricks too.
The DIYs that I’ll be writing about are probably my dogs’ favorite topic. They absolutely love taste testing all the treats I make to share with you. They also enjoy helping me clean up (for the no-bake treats). Along with homemade treats, I’ll be sharing toys and other items you can make for both dogs and cats.
