Just Another Hole in the Wall

Has this ever happened to you or someone you know?  “Dog Shaming” has gone viral recently and while a lot of these images range from funny to just down right unbelievable, it is good to know that you are not the only one who has a dog with a mind of their own sometimes.  Maybe your dog shaming moment happened while you were gone for just an hour too long or perhaps your dog is just as sneaky as mine and can destroy things is 5 seconds flat. Either way, when it comes to dogs, silence is not golden. Silence means they are most likely up to something naughty.  Or sleeping. It’s about a fifty-fifty chance.

My own dog did something similar in our first apartment as a puppy. The corner of the wall was no match for his sharp puppy teeth and he was determined to forever leave his mark on the apartment before we moved. The damage he did was not nearly to the extent in this picture but we were able to mend it with some dry wall putty and a good coat of paint.  The apartment manager never even knew and Bandit began his love for ripping things to shreds! We have yet to find a toy that he cannot demolish. A friend of mine once refered to him as part dog, part gator. Luckily, we have moved past that stage and the sticks in the yard suffice his urges to shred… most of the time.

But in a home of your own a mistake like this could end up costing you a pretty penny and you should probably think about getting Fido some more toys to distract him from the walls. If something like this does happen to you, it can be fixed in no time by Lubbock Kitchen remodeling company. They cover a multitude of remodeling projects in the lubbock area from bathrooms to kitchens, even partially destroyed walls! They can patch up a wall like this with ease, giving you more time to play with your dog and avoid situations like this again. You might even take this “opportune” hole in the wall to finally knock it down and create that open flooring concept you have always wanted! Lubbock kitchen and bathroom remodeling company can help you with that as well. (Now just to convince your husband that it’s worth it)  Maybe you should go ahead and throw Fido a treat for giving you a push in the right direction, huh?

Hopefully you never have to deal with dog shaming on this scale but it sure is a fun distraction to look up these moments when you need to feel better about your own dog or to brighten up your day! Remember, it could always be worse, so be thankful for the awesome dog you have. Take them on a walk, go pick out a new toy, or just give ’em a good ole belly rub today!

Take the Leap!

Just a little something to brighten your day! Not just anyone can be batman, but this cat is sure going to try! Sometimes you just need to be silly and sneak around like a ninja or batman in this case.

It is always good to take a leap of faith, even if you don’t make it, you’ll end up somewhere new, maybe even better!

Doggy Adjustments

I recently discovered the healing and positive influence that having a chiropractor work on your furr baby can be on his attitude and demeanor. Pets everywhere are running into their local chiropractors to get adjusted and worked on just like their owners! It is a new trend and a little crazy but it seems to be catching on like wildfire. From Pomeranians to Pit Bulls, Lewisville Chiropractor is taking on a whole new type of client.

I decided to try out this new idea on my own pet and see what all the fuss was about and if it really does improve their overall health. My dog Bandit is a rescue from Aggieland Humane Society in College Station. My husband and I adopted him when he was about 8 weeks old after him and his sister had been abandoned and found on the side of a busy road. He has a crooked tail that takes a hard right about halfway down and occasionally you can see that his rib may have been broken at some point because it pokes out of his side when he lays in certain positions. His sister, who was actually our first choice, they figured out through testing, was actually deaf and they were having to send her to a special sanctuary for deaf dogs. They train them and then adopt them out to certain owners because they training process for deaf dogs can be very difficult. In the past, a lot of deaf dogs have been returned to humane societies because owners get so frustrated with training that they give up! On occasion I still think about her and hope that another great family has adopted her after all the training was completed. So, obviously, there had been some major trauma in both of their lives and that has had an impact on Bandit’s demeanor and personality. He is absolutely the sweetest dog that can get whatever he wants just by looking at you with his big brown eyes, and doing his little hound howl. He is big mix of dogs, but there is definitely hound and possibly some dalmatian. When we adopted him he was completely white with two patches of brown over his eyes, but now his skin is covered in brown spots. Very odd, but we love it! He is a big ole, sixty-five pound lap dog who just wants you to love on him and play with him occasionally. He gets jealous if there is not space between my husband and I on the couch so that he can snuggle. He will just sit and stare at you and occasionally whimper until we make space for the baby.  Since we adopted him shortly after we got married, he really has become a part of our little family. He will be there for every move, every baby that pulls on his tail and takes naps on his belly, and be there waiting for our kids to
come home from school every afternoon. It is hard to replace the impact that a dog like Bandit can have on your family, so why would I not want to take care of him in every way I possibly can?

Which leads me to Lewisville Chiropractic and doggy adjustments. I am hoping they will be able to see if there is anything they can do for his side or his tail. If not, I am sure that it wont hurt to get him adjusted a little. Maybe I will even treat myself to an adjustment! Hope everything goes well.
