    I saw a photo of these 2 chihuahuas (mama Chickpea and her puppy Potato) on a calendar and thought they were so adorable together. Then I read their story and was shocked.

    A poem that I came across but made me cry for all my pets I've lost over the years.

    WE HAVE A SECRET We have a secret, you and I that no one else shall know, for who but I can see you lie each night in fire glow? And who but I can reach my hand before we go to bed and feel the living warmth of you and touch your silken head? And only I walk woodland paths and...

    Urinary problem

    Yesterday and this morning I noticed that Fluff Daddy (my 10 yr. old cat) was going in and out of the litter box without really much urine visible in the litter..just a small amount. Since Jake has had urinary blockage in the past I'm worried that Fluff may be in the same boat. He didn't cry...
