Since I’m surrounded by dogs this week and next, being the “Doggie Au Pair,” I thought a post on our four-legged friends would be appropriate. At the moment, I have 2 Dalmatians and 2 King Charles Cavaliers staring at me with the sweetest “love me” look on their

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! We had snow off and on. They are calling for more snow and rain later today. I just got done placing what seems to be everything but my kitchen sink into my car! For the next 10 days I will be a doggie au pair. I

Hey all you Healthy Heyday-ers! Wherever you are, near or far, I hope today proves to be a “thumbs-up” Thursday for all of you! Check back later for some “high-five” healthy tips.
