As dogs get older, their care requirements change. They may need different food, supplements, and even special assistive devices. Check out these budget-friendly tips so you can keep your pet happy and healthy well into their senior years.
Shop Around for Pet Supplies
Stock up on a few supplies to help your aging pup. For example, older dogs are more sensitive to cold temperatures. With a heated dog bed, a sweater, and extra blankets, you can keep them comfortable. You may also want to pick up
On occasion we will get a request or question asking if the disposable diaper wraps come in any other color.
I have been asking the same thing of our manufacturers over the years but as you can see, all disposable diapers for the dogs have been available in "white" only. Many pet owners don't really mind as long as the diaper wraps do the job they were intended to do. However, we do provide the cloth cover wraps for those who want to cover them up when they take their dog on an outing.

Dakota got a new friend about 7 years ago. His name is Bear and he is a Maltese.
When the dogs first met Dakota was nice to Bear. Knowing that Dakota didn't play well with others, this was a surprise. They now tolerate each other.
Dakota misses Bear when he goes for grooming appointments, and greets him when he gets home. Other than this display of affection, Dakota doesn't have much to do with Bear.

It is always an exciting day when Dad takes Mom and tiny little Cash on an outing, especially when it comes to meeting new people. Cash has never turned down an opportunity for a by-passer to stop and tell him how adorable he looks while sharing a warm pat or scratch behind the ear.
Now if they have a treat for him that's the icing on the cake - or as the little guy would say, "gravy on the bone"! However, a lick or two of frozen doggie yogurt works too.

DAKOTA'S DAILY WALKS
As the family and Dakota settled in, my husband would take her for walks. There was a hiking trail close to the house, that they frequented.
Jack walked Dakota on the trail several times always on the leash, stopping at certain spots to rest and give Dakota a drink of water and a treat.
The next walk on the trail Jack decided to let Dakota run. He took the leash off and away she went. When he caught up with her, she was waiting for him at one of the spots they had stoppedClick here to read more.
When Dakota was brought home, she was familiarized with her new surroundings. She did the usual stiffing and smelling and gladly went to into her new yard. My husband, working from home, watched her for a moment or two and went to his office. Shortly after he sat down he heard Dakota bark. She was at the back door. Now, mind you this is not the door she went out to get to the yard. My husband let her in, took her back to the yard, looked for and open gate, a hole that sheClick here to read more.

Our beautiful Red Heeler, also known as Australian Cattle Dog. They are bred for their working ability. There are two colors of Heelers, Red and Blue. They work behind the herd to keep it moving forward. They are incredibly agile and fast and very good at their job. They may nip the heels of the cow if need be, hence the Heeler part of her name. I will tell you that Dakota is a city girl and has never worked with cows. Really, the only herding she has done is to push me to theClick here to read more.
The Gift of Acupuncture...
After waking up one morning from a completely normal active dog to one that was totally paralyzed in both hind quarters from no apparent reason, was a total shock. X-rays didn't reveal anything conclusive but shell shock with back surgery from 3-5k and possibly reaching up to 10k+ with no guarantees was horrible news. Plus the fact that she was 13 yrs old and may never walk again.
Heartbroken, we took our little Suki home and began to look for alternative answers.
