The Dog Star (Sirius) is the Brightest!

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

Before I got to bed each night and especially on a clear night, I love to look at the stars. How about you? Did you know that the brightest star in the sky is Sirius, which is called the dog star? As I gaze upward looking at the stars, I’d like to think that Bodie-dog is watching me from heaven or perhaps for you it is someone you lost or that is far away that you miss. At any rate, some nights the sky is so clear, it is hard to take in all of the beauty. Photo Source: Live...

Random Encounters and Friends

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

I wanted to share a quick story about Liz and Barry, a couple that we met while exhibiting at a pet show a couple years ago. We were placed next to them at the show by chance and began to get to know them. They are nicest people ever and so helpful to us newbie product people. I watched them demonstrate their product to various customers as I stood in my booth. I noticed the time they took with each person in listening to their stories and needs for their pets. Truly, they really care and are very passionate about...

Bodie has been gone now for three months. I still walk this path each morning. Yep, it was really tough, especially...

Former Ring Bone Chewer - Dogs and Rawhides

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

Bodie loved the ringbone style rawhides. It would take him three to four days to work his way through one. He was a chewer and it was his favorite treat. I never knew they may not be a healthy or safe treat for a dog until three years a go or so, when I read more reports about them and the risk hazards. Bodie was always supervised when he had his ringbone and never showed any negative signs from chewing rawhides. He loved the ring bone shaped ones as he paraded it through the house and tossed it in the...

I Wonder What Name My Dog Gave Me

Posted by Kelly Jansens on

I wonder what name my dog gave me….was it Mama, my person, sweet-ma, food lady… did you ever wonder? They are such smart creatures. Obviously, they know their people by sent and stature. They have feelings and know words too. What about your dog’s name? Did you name them? Where they adopted with a given name? A name is really important; after all you will be calling that name thousands of times over your dog’s life. *** Naming your Pet…many dog trainers suggest giving dogs names that are more in keeping with their status, as well as names that are easily spoken (by humans) and...
