February is nearly over

February is over WOW.  We cannot believe how fast this year is going. 

Layla and I have cabin fever. It just does not seem to stop raining here and although she has been very good with walks in the rain, some long, some short we both need some sunny park time to be outdoors relaxing.

Yesterday she was not happy as she got a bath. I am fortunate to be able to get her a free bath once a month through PAWS/Shanti Project which makes life very easy for me as living in a studio when I bathe her the floor becomes a lake LOL, so I take advantage of these free baths. It is also amazing how they always have volunteers from different companies come in to do the bathing so all I have to do is take her there and they do all the work. It is also thanks to Pet Food Express for allowing us to do it there, they are an amazing Pet Food Store and give so much back to the community. If I buy something and Layla does not like it, I can return the open bag and get credit, they have rescued cats up for adoption there, and many rescue organizations do adoption events at their different stores. 

Layla of course now loves going there with no arguments like in the past as she knows she gets treats from the employees and what could be better than that. 

The past 48 hours have been crazy stormy so yesterday when I was at the store I picked up for her a new chewy which is a turkey tendon and she is in love with them. It keeps her busy during the day and not sleeping that much LOL. Cabin fever can be costly also.

I am working in my new job which is hard but I am enjoying also so am out of the house for about 5 hours each day, I hate leaving Madam but on the other hand it is good for both of us.


So that is what is happening in the Layla Neighborhood, not much excitement but she is being spoiled with lots of Mommy time as I excluding work have no interest in running around in the rain so condense everything into an outing when I leave for work.


Be safe and warm everyone and don’t forget that with all the winds and rain the one thing that is keeping Madam calm is the 4Paws Pet Blend Hemp Oil Supplement. You can read all about it on the below link :

I am not happy BOL


Wednesday Woof with Memories

May has arrived !!!
Spring is here I hope for everyone and the flowers are blooming, the chill is disappearing and everyone will be able to spend more time outdoors with our dogs. What a wonderful feeling.
May also brings back memories for me, not good ones but ones that I can say I am blessed to have had and those are with Baby R.I.P.
I will never forget going to the shelter to choose a dog, my ex told me to choose and then like anything else in an abusive relationship it was what she wanted or nothing so Baby came to live with us. That was 07 May 2006.
She was a cute little chiweenie, full of love and I could not have asked for a better friend through the hard times. Because of her I was able to escape the daily abuse by taking her for long walks, sometimes sitting under a tree and watching the world go by with her in my arms, she kept me alive in many ways during that awful period of my life.
She was the reason I stayed in the Domestic Violence relationship as I was not prepared to leave her there but the minute I had the chance I ran with her. It was hard, stressful but I would do it all over. She was my hero.
Many Domestic Violence victims to this day say I stayed in the relationship because of my pets and I so fully understand them, they are your children and you would not leave them behind to be abused so would rather take the abuse to protect them.
So as those May memories go through my mind I am blessed to have had her, we had a couple of years of freedom together where I over spoiled her with no regrets, when she passed which was one of the hardest days of my life, I waited and then adopted Layla.
Layla is my rock, she keeps me amused, makes me smile, and is blessed to have not gone through those dark days with me but instead has had the chance to have sunny ones and this month brings the sunny days to us.
So let us all count our blessings, say thanks for what we have, material items are great but they cannot measure the unconditional love of a pet and if I had to choose between the two i would go for the pet.
Layla is now off to sleep as usual while I carry on working,
With love and woofs
Layla
