Who Says Cats and Dogs Don’t Mix?

A lot of your dog’s traits depend primarily on how you raise him/ her. Everything we read prior to purchasing our dog discouraged introducing a dog to a cat but recommended, if necessary, to do so very early in the dogs life.

Our pets have done nothing but grow together as they grew up and it seems that they don’t even see a difference in each other anymore. On some occasions we even catch this brother and sister snuggling on the couch.

Usually we’re fighting with her to stay in her own Continue reading

Dogo Learns to Swim

Webbed paws on a dog indicate that its breed is typically meant to swim. Despite this, the first swim for a dog is as overwhelming as it is to a child.

We were very excited in getting our dog to swim and tried to encourage it but a dog will tell you when he/ she is ready. Our dog loved splashing in the shallow water and chose to experience this for a long time before venturing further in.

Once she did find her swimming ability things Continue reading
