Petmate Helps Welcome Our Newest Family Member – Ellie!

We’ve added to our family! We rescued our new dog, Ellie, through the National Brittany Rescue & Adoption Network (NBRAN) in April. They used a network of amazing volunteers to transport her from her foster home in Colorado, to her new home here in Washington State. She’s an 18-month old Brittany/Cattle Dog mix and the perfect companion for her new brother, Roo.

How to Clip A Dog’s Nails Without Bleeding

To my sweet Boy, I remember the...

Dog Quotes: Happiness is a Warm Puppy – Gracie’s Favorite Blanket

I’m sure this isn’t what Charles M Shulz had in mind when he uttered this now famous quote, but its the one that comes to mind when I see Gracie burrowed deep into her favorite blanket. It’s OUR blanket, but she claims it every time I put it on our bed. I have to wonder if it reminds her of her mother or siblings. Gracie’s a Maltese and the blanket matches so perfectly that it’s really easy to accidently...

Quotes About Dogs: My Gracie and What’s Great About Animals

This is my little Gracie. She’s 5lbs (or so) of spunk. She came into our lives after I accidently killed our rescue dog, Missy. She ran under my van while I was pulling out of the driveway and my 7-passenger van crushed her. She was so badly injured two vets recommended that we put her to sleep. We did and it was one of the hardest days of my life and even years later I’m wracked with guilt about not preventing the...
