5 Simple Ways To Show Your Dog You Care

5 Simple Ways To Show Your Dog You Care
Dogs are family. And they deserve to be treated like family. Ever since I adopted my dog Loki back in 2015, my life has forever changed for the better. Loki is way more than my pet, he’s my best friend. Before adopting Loki from PAWS Chicago, I never knew what utter joy a dog could bring. I’ve always been a HUGE animal lover and I often bond easily with my friends dogs but before Loki, I never knew what true unconditional love felt like! Sure I adopted him but it was Loki who really rescued me! I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without Loki.

Loki brings me so much joy and happiness and I’ve made it my mission to make sure Loki is always as happy as possible too! With pets, it’s the simple things that go a long way. You don’t have to go above and beyond to show your furry friend how much they truly mean to you. (Spoiler Alert: A simple treat will do!).

Here are five simple ways to show your dog you care: Continue reading

As some of you may already know, for the past year and a half I’ve been on a mission to live a healthier lifestyle. I decreased my fast food intake (which trust me, was super hard), I starting doing yoga (although it’s been a month since I last attended a class, whoops) and I even joined a gym. I also like to go on daily jogs (and sometimes bike rides now that the weather is nicer) with my dog Loki. Speaking of Loki, I’ve also been on a mission this past year to make sure he’s living a healthy lifestyle as well! Let’s face it, all good dog owners want to keep their dogs healthy. We love our dogs, and we want them to be as healthy and happy as possible. Just like it’s important that we have healthy diets and eat good foods, the same goes for our furry friends! Ever since Loki made the transition from puppy food to adult food a while ago, I’ve been on the lookout for good quality hard food to fed him. After a few hits and misses, I recently switched Loki’s food to CANIDAE® Under The Sun® and man, does he (and I) LOVE it! Continue reading

As some of you may know, Loki JUST turned two on Valentine’s Day, so of course I had to shower him with lots of fun treats and toys. While Loki does love getting new toys to play with, he’s definitely more of a foodie (I wonder where he gets it from?)! Ever since I adopted Loki from PAWS Chicago back in 2015, CESAR® has been his go-to wet food. It was the first meal he had in his new home and I think because of that, it’s sort of comforting for him. It’s so funny because as Loki is getting older, I’m starting to witness new little quirks in his personality that I didn’t seem to see before. For example, no matter where Loki is in the house, if you say “outside?”, he will RUN to the backdoor so he can go play in the backyard. I’ve always noticed that whenever he sees me grabbing a CESAR® wet food cup, he instantly goes and sits by his food bowl (clever dog!).  Continue reading

Since yesterday was Valentine’s Day, I got to thinking about love and the things and people that I love. When it comes down to it, there are two things that I LOVE more than anything on the planet: traveling and my dog, Loki. Speaking of Loki, not only was yesterday Valentine’s Day but it was also Loki’s birthday (he turned two!). Although I’ve always been a big traveler, ever since graduating college in 2014, I’ve found myself traveling more than I ever have in my entire life. In 2016 alone I traveled to Florida and California multiple times, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Indiana, the Bahamas, Amsterdam and Paris (TWICE!). Yup, traveling is definitely one of my favorite hobbies! You know who else loves to travel? Loki! Over the past (almost) two years, I’ve learned a few things about what to do and what not to do when it comes to traveling with pets. Here are my top six tips for traveling with your dog Continue reading

Celebrating the Howlidays at Kriser’s Natural Pet

Kriser’s Natural Pet
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and since it’s FINALLY December, that means the holiday shopping can officially commence! Can I tell you guys a secret? I’m actually done with ALL my holidays shopping (hooray for planning ahead!). Thanks to Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday (and a little extra shopping prior to that), I was able to get everything I wanted for my friends and family this holiday season. In fact, the only other person (well, I guess he’s not a “person” but you know what I mean) I still needed to go holiday shopping for was my little furbaby, Loki! Since Loki can’t write a letter to Santa, and I wanted to make sure he’d actually really love his gifts, I decided to surprise him with a trip to Kriser’s Natural Pet so he could pick out a few holiday treats for himself!
