The hardest post to write.

Our sweet Baby the Maltese went over the rainbow bridge last night. Everything happened quickly, starting on Monday when we learned that she had cancer and that it had spread to multiple organs. There was nothing that could be done except to make her happy and comfortable until it was time to say good bye.


We are heartbroken and will miss her so very much.

Gift giving that gives back.

Have you heard of It’s a site where you can do your holiday shopping AND give back at the same time. Goodshop gives you the best deals and coupons at thousands of retailers, and donates a percentage of all purchases to the cause of the shoppers’ choice!


There are thousands of deals to save with and more than 110,000 nonprofits and schools to support. There are many animal related causes too, including one of our favorites, Best Friends Animal Society!

With so much shopping coming up for the holidays, I just wanted to share this in case you might find it useful. I was not compensated for this post.

Disney Holiday Pet ScarfThe holiday season is here, and it’s a busy time of year! Luckily, there is something that you can put on your wish list that will help you keep your house clean all year long! The Neato!

I have wanted a robot vacuum since the first day I heard of them. Of course now I have upgraded my wish list to include the Neato! Why? It’s a true vacuum, not just a sweeper! And there are many other reasons to love the Neato too. Be sure to enter the giveaway below for your chance to win one for yourself.


I’ll share a little secret with you, I think that I might shed more than our dog ever could. Of course if you have pets, you know there will be shedding! The fact that Neato Robot Vacuums have been consistently reviewed as “Best For Pets” by Industry experts, and publications like CNET, appeals to me not just for our dog, but for the humans too!

How do you handle pet shedding? Check out the Neato Shedding Solutions Guide for some great tips from our friends at Pet360 and PetMD, to help care for your pets and your home!

Because our Baby likes to sleep on the carpet and run on the hard floors, I love that the Neato can easily move along different flooring and not lose suction! I also have a feeling Baby would get a kick out of seeing the Neato start vacuuming without me lifting a finger. That’s right, it runs all on it’s own on a schedule you set! It will even return back to charge itself when the battery gets low.
