My long-time friend, BL Ochman, and biz partner have just launched a very cool website, starting with a blog. PawFun. We're going to be able to order tee shirts with photos of our pets on it. The blog site right now has a caption contest, which is great fun, but what struck my eye was an article by a NY veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Mlekoday on the top 10 things pets swallow. Ochman is passionate about dog care, so you can expect lots of "How-to's" at Paw Fun. Enjoy.
What a sad day, yet one that wasn't unexpected. My dear little granddog, Shimmy, died today. Little Shimmy had finished all his assignments, and it was time to go. He was simply worn out. Kerrie's mother, Dr. Nancy Kerr, took him in years ago in Tempe, Arizona. Shimmy stayed with her until her death, and then stayed with Dr. Lee Meyerson, Kerrie's stepfather, until his death.

And he was that. No matter that he couldn't see much or hear much or understand much, he always knew he belonged.
Another delight of visiting Hawaii is the chance to enjoy my grand-cats, Moe Moe, Meow Meow, and Mimi. They are beautiful, vigorous, and often hilarious. The above photo is of Moe Moe. Mimi, who was here first, always joins Ted when he brushes his teeth. She parks by the sink and laps at the water dripping from the faucet. She also climbs very high in the kitchen, which has vaulted ceilings. I'll have a photo of her later. Gorgeous gal.
Have you ever ordered something online and been thoroughly delighted with the customer service? I have, and my latest adventure reinforced my enthusiasm about online businesses. Sure, I checked them out first, and The Cat Tree Store seemed ideal for my intensely busy, athletic kitty, L'il Bear and his older brother, Shadow. I ordered a kitty condo--free shipping--and received it within a week. L'il Bear and I proceeded to put it together. It took some effort, but it was fun, and truly easy to follow the visual instructions. Here are some pictures showing how L'il Bear helped me, and how much he and Shadow enjoy it... Continue Reading
