Most of you know by now that I love PetSmart®. I buy all of my pet supplies there, which includes treats, toys and of course food for my dogs and cats. It’s also well known that Wynston is a model for PetSmart, so you could say that I hold a bit of a bias. Although I frequently rant and rave about PetSmart, it isn’t just because they are a great store and my dog models for them. PetSmart is always working to make the lives of pet better, whether it’s your pet or another animal in need. For their 30th anniversary, PetSmart just announced their biggest philanthropic program ever. They hope to contribute more than 60 million meals with the Buy A Bag, Give A Meal™ campaign.
We haven’t had another dog stay with us since we adopted McKenzie Rae in November 2015. McKenzie was working through a lot of fear issues for a while so if the opportunity presented itself to watch a dog overnight at our home, we declined. Now that our girl is more versed in the ways of the world and we have a much bigger house, we can once again open our doors to more dogs. When Matt’s friend texted him one evening to see if we could take his Pomeranian, Aina (pronounced “eye-nuh”), for about 24 hours, we briefly discussed it and agreed. Of course we asked if she was good with dogs and cats, and she is. A couple of hours later, this little ball of fluff was walking through my front door and I fell in love.

Typically Matt and I like to go to California a few times a year. We have a second home in La Verne, which is in East LA County, about 30 minutes from Disneyland and Huntington Beach. The drive is an easy six hours from our Arizona house. We love to pack up the dogs for relaxing trips, and that’s what we planned to do this past weekend. We made it to California safely, but plans took a quick, unexpected turn a day after we got into town.
Most people like routine, and many people thrive on one. I’m one of those people. I don’t follow a strict schedule since I work for myself from home, but I still have a daily routine that I enjoy following. Not only does having a routine help me through my days, but it makes them much less stressful. Did you know that it’s the same for our pets? Cats and dogs prefer a routine just as humans do. In fact, if your pets aren’t on a routine it can cause serious anxiety and stress. Not sure how to go about setting a schedule for your dog or cat? Here’s how to make a schedule for your pet, and why it’s important to do so.
