A Poem For Baylie On Her Birthday

402592_3067631980132_1543540795_2858364_726678868_n-21

Three years ago; a special day

A tiny, dirty, stray with big brown eyes came my way

Great Pyrenees, the vet said is her breed

How could I care for a dog that will grow like a weed

I took her in to find her a home

But found with each passing day she warmed my soul

It didn’t take long for me to know

For here she will stay in her forever home

Long gone are the days of a spotless house

Dog toys and fur are scattered about

Puppy nose smudged windows are now the norm

But that’s okay for it’s  Baylie’s  home

No longer is the sofa a place to recline

Baylie has proclaimed; “for it is mine”

She greets me each morning with her happy smile

And showers me with kisses in true Baylie style

By my side she stays, when I’m feeling bad

And seems to know when I am sad

She has proclaimed a truce with Smoki the Cat

For she recognizes the boss in this habitat

Three squares a day, a nice warm bed in which to rest

A promise of love and devotion is all she requests

For it is I who was lucky on that cold January day

When Baylie came into my life to stay

Baylie Talks Thanksgiving College #Football Rivalries

Baylie here.  This weekend, all across the country,  bragging rights are earned on the college gridiron. I’m talking about college football rivalries on the weekend following Thanksgiving for you doggies who don’t follow college football. Historic, proximity-based rivalries are always renewed over Thanksgiving weekend. It’s when the humans get together to eat copious amounts of junk food and get really loud and obnoxious.   I live in the South and in the South, people are down right fanatical when it comes to college football; most notably, the match-up between the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the  Auburn University Tigers in the Iron Bowl .  Silly me, I thought they were referring to  my  metal food bowl when I heard Iron Bowl; that is, until the humans explained.

How Pet Odor Could Hinder The Marketability Of Your Home

Final

When we step into a home, one of the first things we often notice is the smell. Does it smell new or clean?  Does it pass the smell test?

We all love our pets like family but when it comes time to sell our home, there are some important things pet owners need to consider to prevent our pet(s) from derailing the sale of our home.  If you have considered putting your home on the market, but are not sure how to handle pet odors that have accumulated after years of caring for your four-legged friends, we may be able to help.  We can all relate. We love our pets and they take priority, but someone else may not and that can impact our bottom line when selling our home.
