    I just picked Jake up from the animal clinic. Thank goodness he's the last pet that needed to be taken care of. He had his teeth cleaned and three pulled - not a happy kitty! It's great that they can now give them an antibiotic shot that will work for 2 weeks. I think his mouth is too sore to tr... Read more

  • The Lies on the Labels

    5/6/2016 3:48:31 PM, by SHAPAIBRON

    5/6/2016 3:44:26 PM, by PATRICIAANN46

    A good friend sent this to me today and I couldn't agree with it more.......... Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your 26 is very bi... Read more

    5/6/2016 12:08:28 PM, by SUPER_CIARA

    I've now lost over half the weight I regained at the beginning of the year (I had regained 21 pounds, I've now lost 12) and I just dipped back into the 160s this morning. I'm not sure if my weight will fluctuate back up for a bit so I'm not declaring anything too certain just yet, but anyway I'm pr... Read more
