We hear the words “green”, “organic” and “natural” a lot these days but what does it all really mean? Do we have to be a chemist to clean our home in a safe, natural, non-toxic way? The answer is no. We just need a bit of information to help us out!
Baylie Dog here. The holidays are special in my house. Not only is it a time to pause and give thanks for the blessings of the past year, we celebrate my birthday in the month of December!
Baby it’s cold outside and cold weather can be hard on pets, just like it can be hard on people. Sometimes owners forget that their pets are just as accustomed to the warm shelter of the indoors as they are. Dogs and cats can suffer from frostbite and hypothermia when left in the extreme cold for a prolonged period. Some owners will leave their animals outside for extended periods of time thinking that all animals are adapted to live outdoors. This can put their pets in danger of serious illness. There are things you can do to keep your animal warm and safe.
- Take your animals for a winter check-up before winter kicks in. Your veterinarian can check to make sure they don’t have any medical problems that will make them more vulnerable to the cold.
Just as we promised, it’s time! Zuke’s #FueltheLove blog hop, hosted by Event Barkers, is on! What is a blog hop, you ask? For the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing Baylie Dog and over 30 other bloggers come together to sponsor some pretty awesome giveaways. We will share news about Zuke’s Performance Pet Nutrition; their Dog and Cat Cancer Fund (DCCFund), eco-friendly practices from the air we breathe to the packaging of their products, and much more! For Zuke’s, sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint while promoting a healthy diet and lifestyle for your pet are second nature.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 4, 2013 – Bailey’s Choice LLC. in Waleska, GA is recalling its 5 oz. packages of chicken treats because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Sadly, cancer is one of the leading causes of death in dogs and cats. The National Canine Cancer Foundation has set aside the entire month of November to educate pet parents about the causes, effects, and treatments of this terrible disease.

Before Baylie came onto the scene, my house was decorated in the style in which I prefer. It wasn’t long before I noticed the differences in our taste of decor. I like everything neat and tidy. Baylie likes that lived-in look.
Baylie is fast becoming a decorating mogul in the canine arena. Dogs and cats in the neighborhood copy her style. Baylie prefers the outdoorsy, rustic look. She likes the feeling of bringing the outdoors in, literally; cabin cottage, shabby chic all rolled into one. I recognized her unusual talent in interior design as a wee little pup. It is truly a gift since dogs are colorblind and are thought to see only in shades of gray.
