Living with a Golden Retriever

Golden Retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds out there. I almost guarantee that at least one of your neighbors owns a Golden and you see their happy-go-lucky selves strutting around your neighborhood each day. Aside from their obvious friendliness, Goldens are much more than what meets the eye. Keep reading to see if a Golden Retriever is right for you! 

My Dog Is My Best Friend

I spend most of my time with my dog. I hang out the most with my dog. My dog sees all of my ups and downs, all of my happy and sad days. And she never leaves. She sticks by me through thick and thin no matter what type of day I’m having. My dog is my best friend.

BARCS Animal Shelter

In my area, there are a great amount of animal shelters (excluding the Animal Control pound). There’s the county SPCA, Maryland’s SPCA up in Baltimore, as well as one that has separated itself from the SPCA name – BARCS Animal Shelter. 

The Catnip of the Dog World

One word: Greenies. 

If you’ve ever given your dog these dental chews, you might know that they have the power to make your dog go crazy (for them, of course). I’ve experienced this first hand with Savannah (just look at that concentration on her face in the picture below). Every single morning after our walk, we come back inside and head straight for the kitchen. She knows, I know, we all know – it’s Greenie time. 

Meet Roo & Melford

Aside from Savvy Paws’ first featured pet and awesome co-writer (aka sleeping next to me while I type away), Savannah, let’s welcome our first outside featured pet – actually, let’s make that plural because these two Chihuahuas are the cutest sisters I’ve ever seen!

Flea & Tick Medication

Isn’t it the worst when your dog starts having a reaction to a certain medication or bug bite and you have absolutely no idea where to begin to give them the help they need? Vet bills are no joke and many of these sorts of medical instances can be treated at home due to their not-so-severeness. Our “What to do” series is designed to educate you on how to get through these accidents so you can keep a clear mind if something happens to come around.
