Hello hotties!   As summer winds down and fall starts creeping around the edges of the morning and evenings, we hope you all had an amazing summer. We’ve had a bit of a shake up here at the Rhinestone Ranch House….our lovely little girl Minnie was diagnosed with canine lymphoma.   UGH, it was suchContinue reading “Princess Minnie Perfume Oil Presented By Arcana”

Carpet Afterlife Stain Remover Review

    Hello again, hotties!  You know what’s sexy?  Well, it’s not carpet cleaner.  BUT clean carpets and upholstery can be pretty sexy.  I’m sure you can tell from the photos on the blog but we are very pet friendly around here.   I work at a pet friendly office and drive dogs around allContinue reading “Carpet Afterlife Stain Remover Review”

RIP Sir Fergus Of Bravo

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we had to say good-bye to Fergus on August 1st.   Fergus was struggling with heart failure and had also recently been diagnosed with renal failure.  The two are difficult to treat together at best and Fergus fought hard until he was just too tired. For thoseContinue reading “RIP Sir Fergus Of Bravo”

Ella’s Lead Collar And Leash Review

So a while ago (ahem) I ordered a couple of items from Ella’s Lead.  I saw a Walker Bait collar on Facebook and just knew that I had to have one for Minnie.   If the ZA actually happens, Minnie is just wily enough to not only survive, but thrive.   Just like Glenn in The WalkingContinue reading “Ella’s Lead Collar And Leash Review”

Moving An 85 Gallon Fish Tank

We are remodeling the living room which included floor to ceiling bookshelves and a new tile floor.  This also means that we got to move an 85b gallon fish tank.   It’s a lot of work but not necessarily *hard* work so I thought I’d share it in a picture story.  Enojy!  (oh and all theContinue reading “Moving An 85 Gallon Fish Tank”

Sir Fergus Of Bravo Update!

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on Fergus.  I can say he’s doing so amazingly well that I can’t even believe it.   He’s settled right into our household like he’s been here for years.  His eye is looking so much better, his fur is literally soft and supple and his mobility hasContinue reading “Sir Fergus Of Bravo Update!”

Kiddie Pool Time!

I pulled out the kiddie pool for the dogs for the first time this year today.   Well, only Patrick and Dash really like to splash around in it but the other dogs will drink out of it.  Haha!   Bib B used to enjoy it but Minnie and Joxer are less than impressed. While the BoxersContinue reading “Kiddie Pool Time!”

Sir Fergus Of Bravo

I guess it’s time to formally introduce my newest foster, Sir Fergus Of Bravo.  On 2/28/12  Fergus was found by a nice lady in Oregon after he wandered down her long driveway and tried to cuddle up next to her house.   Can you imagine stepping out of your house and finding this poor lost andContinue reading “Sir Fergus Of Bravo”

Julie Austin Doggie Photo Shoot

Several weeks ago Julie Austin came over to get home photos of Big B and I.   She was also kind enough to take pics of rest of my motley crew.   These were all taken in my front and back yards with natural light.   You should check out the photos on Julie’s site…they are amazing! http://www.jaustinphotography.com/

RIP Buford T. Justice “Good Dog”

I remember the very moment I first met Buford.   Chris and I had recently and suddenly lost our Mastiff/Lab mix George and whilst cruising Pet Finder found a dog at the Yakima Humane Society that looked remarkably like him.    Because of my work schedule I never got a chance to head over and meet himContinue reading “RIP Buford T. Justice “Good Dog””

Buford T. Justice And Adenocarcinoma

I think I’ve avoided posting this because I’m just not wanting to deal with it.   I’m angry and adrift and yes, a bit depressed but mostly I’m deeply and profoundly sad.   Fuck cancer.  Big B has been my best friend since the day he entered our lives.  He’s been my protector, my doughnut andContinue reading “Buford T. Justice And Adenocarcinoma”

Dash The Wonder Puppy Update

I thought I should give an update on Dash as his journey has been a long and difficult one. Dash continued to get better and was adopted by a really nice family at the end of February. Although being healthy when he left he didn’t do well in his new home. He had several tripsContinue reading “Dash The Wonder Puppy Update”
