DOGtober 2018: Day 9

Saturday October 27, 2018 marks the 28th anniversary of the Pet Parade at Potrero Hill in San Francisco Ca. The Parade started at Farley’s coffee 1315 18th Street at 1pm. There is a costume contest that will immediately follow the parade. There will also be trophies for the winners and pet treats for everyone who takes part of the activities. This is one of our favorite parades because we walk right past my cousins house and my BC (baby cousin) who gets a kick every time the pups and I walk by because she loves my littles just as much as I do. So if you are ever in the San Francisco area during this time I highly suggest you check out this puppy parade! Its a lot of fun to be a part of and a lot of fun to speculate!

I like giving them pups these when they are warm so they can warm up their little bellies especially after a cold day or a cold walk. Plus sweet potatoes are also super beneficial to them like the pumpkin. Plus I like making little faces and pumpkins on them because they look more festive!

DOGtober 2018: Day 5

One of my favorite places to walk with the pups is Little Yosemite Valley, it is about an hour drive for us so this is just a special occasion for us. We go twice in the month of October and it has gorgeous trails, fall feels and the perfect picture spots with those fur babies. It is also a very peaceful and calming walk even though nothing is green we still have the best time.

DOGtober 2018: Day 2

A lot of people don’t know the benefits of pumpkin for their pups, so if you are wondering why I love giving pumpkin to my littles here’s why!

Digestion– It has a great source of fiber

Skin/Coat- The pumpkin seeds contains antioxidants and fatty acids to moisturize the skin and coat.

Parasites- The pumpkin seeds cucurbits which are an amino acid that acts as a natural dewormer.

UTI- Oils of the flesh and seeds can help prevent bladder infections and kidney stones.

So if you didn’t feed your pups pumpkin, will you do so now?

DOGtober 2017: Day 18

Today we went for a nice walk around the block, slow and steady for the little chub Tarzan. Honestly, he is doing great and has recovered perfectly, but I’m still following the vets orders and he’s not allowed a ton of excercise and hard food until the 14 days are up.


His gums look amazing and his sister is all about being his little shadow again which I love because they are the cutest. The pups and I also did more 13 Nights of Halloween things because tomorrow is the start of DIY’s, recipes and fun fact about this spooktacular season! Thanks for joining us for our first ever DOGtober and we hope to you continue to follow us during 13 Nights!

DOGtober 2017: Day 17

Today the pups and I made a bow, and than laid on the couch and watched TV. We have been running around with our heads cut off all this morning so I thought it would be a good time to sit and take a breather before we get back into the swing of things tomorrow.


Tarzan’s gums looks great! They aren’t swollen and Belle is back cuddling with her brother and it fills my heart.
