Let The Decorating Begin!

As you know, I am ALL about decorating for the holidays...ANY holiday will do!  The Fourth of July is not a huge holiday for us, but I do put out some these!

By the way, did you notice that I used KINETIC Sand from Michael's for these star decorations??  I love that molds perfectly!

And just for fun, here is a picture of the girls last year as they were "enduring" the fireworks.  It is not a celebratory evening for them!  I have to stay in with them and keep them occupied with chews of some sort!!  The music is up LOUD!!

How are you celebrating??

Beating the Heat with Beemer!

We are REALLY hoping that it is going to get a little sunny and warmer here today so we thought we would share a summer treat with you all!

Pour chicken or beef broth into ice cube trays. When frozen, place a few of these delicious doggy ice pops in the bowl with your dog's kibble, or simply add to the water bowl for a flavored beverage.

It is very important for dogs to drink during oppressive heat like they are having out west!!  

Also, make sure they are drinking all kinds of water!!!

Today, I am showing off pics of my granddog, Beemer!!

#PetSafe Sliding Glass Pet Door Giveaway!!

Letting Chloe and LadyBug out eight-seven times a day does get rather tiresome.  If you have dogs or cats then I am positive that you have entertained the idea of getting a doggy door.

Have you thought about how much FREEDOM that would allow you AND your pets??  I bet that one of these new Sliding Glass Pet Doors introduced recently by PetSafe® would help to solve this problem!!

I'm telling you, this PetSafe Sliding Glass Pet Door is the BEST!!  My husband and I are looking at each other saying, "WHY did we wait so long to get one of these genius inventions"??

The PetSafe Sliding Glass Pet Doors allow dogs and cats the freedom to go in and out whenever they like and help to eliminate "accidents"!

The doors feature shatter-resistant glass and heavy-duty aluminum construction, along with an energy-conserving flexible flap that is designed to keep the heat and the cold outdoors.

The assembly of the doors can be permanent or semi-permanent depending on your own individual needs.  We have chosen to use the semi-permanent method as there are times when we prefer to have a larger size opening...such as when our friend, who is in a wheelchair, visits us and wants to enjoy the deck!  The doors fit either left or right sliding glass doors.  Weather stripping and a closing panel are also included for resisting the elements.  We were surprised at how easy the installation went!!  It was quick and easy!  You can read more information about the door you are interested in here.

The PetSafe® brand is an industry leader in the development of innovative pet products.  For additional information, please visit or visit them on Facebook or Twitter.

Of of my readers will have the chance to win one of their very OWN PetSafe Sliding Glass Pet Doors.  The winner will be able to choose the size that fits their needs.  This giveaway is for U.S. residents only and all entrants must be over the age of 18.  Just fill out the form below and the contest will run until July 6th.  Winner will be notified by email.

Fabulous Friday Flowers by the Lake

I am still paying for being gone yesterday so I took the girls for a stroll down by the dock...which they LOVE!  On the way, we passed a few gardens!

It was one of those perfect days...sunny, warm temps about 70 degrees and no wind!

I'm pretty sure that LadyBug was trying to figure out how to get the fish out of the water...she is on her leash because she got in trouble AGAIN for rolling!!  She absolutely loves to roll in the worst smelling stuff.  Like goose poop.  Ugh!!  So, I made her stay on the leash.  She still TRIES to roll, but it definitely makes it more difficult for her!

Chloe was surveying HER territory...she was looking for the golden that lives a couple doors down from us.  She isn't around much during the week, but she always looks for her.  Her name is Biscuit and I wrote about her on the blog last week.  

We did have an interesting thing happen today...we were eating dinner and something caught Ben's eye out the window as we sit at the top of the hill.  He spotted a GROUNDHOG hanging out in my neighbor's garden!  We have been here 25 years and have never, ever seen a groundhog here!!  So, we watched as he darted from garden to garden.  Then, he meandered across the driveway to our other neighbor's and actually walked down the steps!  We were so surprised!!  Have you ever seen a groundhog take the stairs??

Who knew they could even DO that??  BOL!!

Happy Friday!!
