Beautiful Post about Loving and Loss with our dogs. Paws at Home offers appointments for in home euthanasia services and hospice counseling as we understand how difficult it can be to say goodbye. 🐾💜No one tells you how quickly dogs age. How one day you wake up and suddenly their face is all white, how their eyes start to seem more milky than before, how you have to call their name a few more times than you used to.

People tell you not to blink when you have children, but what about the dog who was with you before your children were even thought of? The dog who was by your side before you found the love of your life, the dog who jumped from apartment to apartment in your early 20’s. No one tell’s you to cherish every moment you have with them…


Cherish the dog. The one who’s been there through every break up and every dumb fight with your best friend. That dog who slept in the bed with you when you were lonely and made you feel safe when you left home. Cherish him, because one day you’ll take him on a walk and he’ll start to get tired before you and you’ll realize just how many years he’s been walking by your side.

We have high expectations of puppies and dogs, but far too often we fail to appreciate that patience, consistency, and time are required for training. 🐶💜🐾

We have high expectations of puppies and dogs, but far too often we fail to appreciate that patience, consistency, and time are required for training. 🐶💜🐾"Let me explain why I become agitated on a daily basis.

In this photo you see two species, a human and a dog. The human has approximately 1 billion neurons in their brain while the canine has appoximately 500 million. This is a comparison of the two species and the silly expectations people place on dogs:

1) Human - Given two plus years to accomplish potty training.
1) Canine - Human wants canine potty trainined in two weeks or they will have to rehome the dog....Please take the diaper off your eight month old human and let them crawl around your floor, lets just see the results....

2) Human - Gives human babies pain relievers and various numbing agents to help appease the pain of teething.
2) Canine - Demands Dog Trainer tells them how to reprimand their dog for chewing.

3) Human - Encourages young humans to run and play with endless forms of mental and physical stimulation.
3) Canine - “I have got to teach this dog to calm down!!!”

4) Human - Given 20 plus years to complete an education and become a productive member of society.
4) Canine - Expected to behave flawlessly after 6 weeks of training.

5) Human - Given sick and personal days from work and endless excuses for poor performance.
5) Canine - Expects to perfom perfectly 365 days a year with no questions asked. Canines are also not allowed to feel bad or forget.

6) Human - Expects a pay raise anually for the job they perform.
6) Canine - Humans demand their dog perform more every year and don’t believe they should reward the dog for the work they perform.

Dear human....If you don’t train, don’t complain!"

It’s another Heat Advisory Day, so watch out for your pets and your people with these temps & humidity levels (sometimes getting 100% isn’t good 🥵). Some of the plants like our hibiscus do seem to be enjoying the conditions. 🌺
How do you like my new standing desk?!? 🤷‍♀️🤪 Beware what you buy off the internet, because this was NOT the size I was expecting. The same goes for prescription medications or therapeutic diets for your animals. Not all businesses, online pharmacies, or companies operate with truth and integrity.  (Sending back for a refund 🙃)

Hospice for pets is a very loving way to care for our beloved furry family members when they have received a terminal diagnosis or have reached a point where the quality of their life is dwindling. Our goal is to walk beside our clients during this challenging period and offer practical approaches for the care of their pet and when the time comes to help say goodbye we can allow them to be surrounded by their families in a place where they feel most peaceful. Please contact us for more information at Pawsathomevet.com .
Maybe you just need a cute puppy picture to brighten your Thursday! 🐾💜🐶

When it’s super wet and then gets hot, you get mushrooms growing everywhere. Dogs will eat anything, so keep them away from mushrooms to avoid toxicity issues. 🐶☀️
Summer heat and humidity can be very dangerous for our pets, especially the seniors and the very young. If you like to take your dog in the car with you, please remember that inside temperatures get very hot very fast and sometimes you will have to cool off the vehicle if it’s been sitting in the sun. This is especially true for short-nosed breeds like bulldogs and pugs who can’t get rid of heat as well as other breeds.  🐶☀️
