How to brush wet hair without damage

One of the best beauty purchases I’ve ever made is a bamboo hairbrush. My hair is currently over halfway down my back in length. My hair is very thick and strong as well. But I live in a dry climate and I try to avoid split ends when I can […]

When your business room is your pug’s bidness room

My husband and I have a sense of pride, frustration, love, care and gratitude for our dogs. But when it comes to peeing and pooing, it’s more embarrassment and resignation. We use puppy pads in the house because they have the tiniest bladders and pee sooo many times in a […]

Welcome to the gated community of communal cat toilets

Our laundry room is Toilet Town for cats. It’s not my favourite place to be, but our dogs love it. Pugs have an affinity for eating poop, and our cats’ poop is no exception. Our pug Moby is a shorty and not much of a jumper, so the way we […]

Cooking fail, instant pot win

I’m not a big baker or cook. I love eating meals and baked treats, but I don’t really make them. Cooking seems to take forever and you have to clean up afterwards. I spoke with someone recently who loves to bake and feed people and she said that if you […]

Like sports gloves for your feet

The husband’s favourite socks are Champion socks. They’re a white crew sock with good elastic. There’s grey on the bottom and the champion logo and name on them. We bought them in a big pack from Costco and last year they had black ones in the pack too. They’re thick […]

Like a bra for dogs

We just took the dogs for a walk. We’ve had lots of unluck with harnesses for walking. Pugs are one of the breeds that they don’t recommend you walk them by the collar. It puts too much pressure on their throats and can collapse their trachea. It’s hard even finding […]

Get yo smelly stinky self some sweet-smelling pit stick

Do you remember during puberty when your body was changing and you were growing hair in unmentionable places and your butt or biceps or both were growing? Your feet were stinkin’, your face was breakin’ out and your armpits were dripping with a warm, clear liquid.  This is where parental […]

This Box rocks

Do you know someone who refuses to use a case on their mobile devices? An iPhone without a case, a Samsung Galaxy without a case, a tablet without a case. Who does that?! I sure as hell don’t. I take my phone everywhere (yes, even to the bathroom) and it’s […]

Hemmorhoids are Murda

If you’ve ever had a hemmorhoid, you know that they are the epitome of not fun-ness. The burning, the itching, the pain, the blood… ugh, the blood. It’s like a live murder in the toilet bowl. Every. Morning. What I’ve found helps in this situation is Preparation H with PE. […]

This Bird ain’t Angry

Every dog has their quirks. Pugs loves toys, and one of Dexter’s favourite toys was always Tigger. He loved Tigger and would chew on him every night before bed and softly whimper to himself.  Moby does the same thing but with an Angry Bird toy now called Humpy Bird because […]
