Our pets are an extension of our family. We care for them by feeding them, by playing with them and by caring for them as one of our family!  Like our family, we sometimes have questions about their care. So, to help you find answers about pet care, we have designed this page to give you links to dog news, to pet care and pet articles dealing with pet care and pet health. We also would like to share information about our suppliers and their new products. To see the full articles on our dogs blogs, and our
amazing dog stories, please follow the links to our blogs on word press and share our dog stories, dog articles,  and our experiences with our own pets! (Most current articles are to the top of the list)

This factor then causes us to relax, to lessen our stress and to change our state of mind…In short, we shift gears and slow down.
