Last month I finally got active on Instagram. @desteidogs will mainly be photos of my own dogs, B & D, so if you are looking to see cute dog pictures, welcome to join us there too!
Here is a short overview of what happened in June, 2017:
"Out of all the days in the year, we have wear these goofy hats on our birthday?" ;D
Thanks for being good sports girls!
Recently my dogs celebrated their birthdays. If you combine their ages together now, it makes a whopping 20 years of dog and that's pretty crazy to me! The years go by so unbelievably fast!
Getting a new fluffy family member is exciting, but there is a lot to remember before bringing a puppy home. One important task is to puppy proof your home, yard and garage. Your home environment should be as safe as possible for your four legged friend who is a curious and playful little creature capable of getting into trouble easily. Owners should remember that puppies are just babies who will not be able to know what is dangerous and what's not, until they have grown up and been trained.
Every home is different, so it's your responsibility to go through yours and scout out all the potential dangers. Here are some general things to consider when puppy proofing your place.
I had my camera with me on one of our most recent walks, so I thought I would post some photos here in the blog too. Our walk took place at a nature reserve that consists of a lot of forest and wetlands. The weather was about 15°C, cloudy and very windy, especially around the open swamp areas.
I love nature, so this kind of walks that happen in deep woods are so relaxing and healing to my soul. We got to enjoy nice scenery, listen to birds and watch butterflies during our walk. I'm no bird expert, but after some research I suspect we heard the singing of a Common cuckoo and an Europian golden plover at least.
To keep up with the floral theme for this years' summer dog supply designs (previous flower desings include Frangipanis and Daisies), I have yet another flower design to mention and it is this purple Viola. Maybe your dog shares a name with this flower or your favorite color is purple? If so, then this design set is perfect for you. You can get a whole matching set including a Viola dog collar, leash, pet identity tag, dog bed, bandana and a pet food bowl.
