Welcome to another wonderful Wordless Wednesday. Today I’m posting along with lots of other pawsome pet bloggers on Blogpaws Wordless Wednesday blog hop. Enjoy.
Don’t you love headbands?! They are such a cute way to throw your hair back in a pinch. I love those days when my curls cooperate and I can use a headband to push them out of my face and still show them off (otherwise I wrap them up and hide them in a bun). I know that doesn’t seem to have much to do with pets, but what I’m getting at today is dog headbands! A super easy, ten minute craft that will look as cute on your pet as it does on you. *Bonus, you can make matching ones. I just thought of that, and it’s now on my to do list (I love Max, but sometimes I need a girl dog). Anyway… super easy craft – three supplies, one tool, and your pooch is ready for a beautiful hair day at the park! Let’s get started shall we?
It doesn’t matter what part of the world you live in natural disasters, of some sort, are universal. Nobody likes to think about them, but being prepared is the most important thing you can do!!! My usual plan is: worry a bunch when nothing is happening, make a plan, get prepared, and then hopefully never have think about it again. Here in Florida, hurricanes are our most common threat. We haven’t gotten a bad hit in quite a long time, but we had two little ones pass through last year, and we’ve already had a couple tropical storms blow through this summer. In my lifetime, Florida mostly gets hit in the fall, so it’s that time again when families start going through their supplies and making sure everything is in order. I found this great resource for getting your all your pet’s ducks in a row when it comes to natural disasters. No matter what kind of disasters come your way, be it hurricanes or something else, I can’t stress enough the importance of being prepared, not just you, but your pets too.

Making sure you provide a well balanced diet for your herp is just as important as eating enough fruits and veggies yourself. With all the commercial foods it’s easy to get distracted from what a well balanced diet actually looks like. To start with the obvious, it’s going to look different for different herps, but should consist of one or both of these things: plant and live food. Commercial foods are balanced, generally healthy, and readily available, but fresh food plays such an important role in your pets mental and physical well being that it can’t be put aside!
Itchy dog skin is a common problem pet parents deal with. It’s so frustrating to watch your dog scratch and scratch and feel like you’re not helping them. Max is one of these. So in an effort to help him I created this easy oil recipe that has done wonders for his skin and his itchies. It’s all natural and only uses three ingredients.
Two things birds love best, entertainment and treats. This toy combines both for an easy, 4 step, DIY bird treat toy.

On Saturday Max had to go for the vet. Blood work, shots and all. Since the whole family was already out we took Max to the market afterward. It was our first time at the market with him, because of some behavior issues, but he did a really great job.
Checking out the kid’s lunches – He got some hot dog too, but eats it way to fast for a photo
It’s important to stay hydrated. Two and a half water bottles should do it Mom. (We’d been there for 30 minutes)
Checking out the venders
Ready to go home. It was hot.
There’s a relatively new term flying around and I LOVE it! The term is “pet parent”; not owner, or master (man I hate that one!), but parent. Many of you have probably heard it before, but I still run across pet lovers who haven’t, and I’m on a mission to change that. So what is a “pet parent” anyway. Well, to me, it’s a person who is responsible for raising a well mannered, socially adapted, emotionally confidant, and physically healthy animal of another species. I mean, that’s what parents do for their human children right? So isn’t the term fitting?
