Spring Season = Mud Season

At least that's how it goes here in NorthEast Ohio. Unfortunately our back yard isn't landscaped (there is grass though) and Hazel used to have a tendancy to dig under the deck. One spring evening, I think she must have stepped in one of her holes that had turned into a mud pit while playing outside with Timber. So when I found muddy prints all around the house and said "Who did this!?" there really wasn't a need for a response.

And yes, it was just this one foot.

Spring is Coming

Since we had a lot of sunshine today (yay!) and it's finally starting to feel a little warmer, I thought I would post a spring picture of my favorite girl.

It was like a miracle when we got our backyard fenced. Hazel was so much happier being free to run and play (and poo) without the hassle of us having to leash her up and take her out. She was very difficult to house train. We got her in July and it wasn't until the fence was complete in March that she finally started to consistently potty outside.  So yay for spring, fences, and the men who put ours up in a March snow storm!

Why Support the Humane Society?

In case you've been wondering why you should support the humane society (which I'm sure some have) here are a few reasons.

Nearly 2000 homeless animals come through the doors of the Greater Akron Humane Society every year.

$15 can provide a routine veterinary exam for one homeless animal

$30 can provide parasite protection (fleas, ticks, heartworm, etc) for a dog for three months.

$72 provides life saving kitten formula to a new born kitten.

$156 provides food, shelter, and medical care for a cat for two months.

$262 provides food shelter and medical care for a dog for two months.

Thank you again for your continued support!
