Wynston and I stayed at Crook Campground in Forest Lakes Estates, Arizona in June 2020 for the first time. Here is our dog-friendly review of Crook Campground.
You always hear the saying “You never know how precious something is until you lose it.” Well, I believe that’s the case in some scenarios. But when Wynston, my heart dog, was nearly mauled to death by a neighbor dog, I already knew how precious Wynston was.
One month prior to Wynston almost dying, my stepdad passed away after a long battle with cancer. I thought sitting on his death bed and kissing his forehead before the funeral home came for his body was traumatizing. Little did I know what I would experience a month later.
It’s no secret that Wynston is my life. And when you see your life torn in half, bleeding and screaming in agony on the sidewalk, things change.
I’ve learned a lot from my dog surviving a savage attack. BUT he survived. So let’s talk about how I’m feeling now.
Dogs undergo surgery for a plethora of reasons, just like humans do. Whether it’s a simple neuter, broken bone or severely traumatic incident, your dog will need help recovering from surgery.
Helping your dog after they have been through surgery will be key in a full body recovery. In this blog post I talk about tips for helping your dog recover after surgery.
Unfortunately this blog post is written from experience, as Wynston has broken his foot and been mauled to near death by a large dog.
In late March I started writing an “after quarantine” goal list for Wynston and I. It included fun items like go kayaking, add more product to our store, and travel somewhere.
Now, two months later, Arizona is finally “open” again. We can walk into stores, dine in at restaurants and get our hair and nails done. But Wynston and I are still on a personal “stay at home order.” We can’t go kayaking. We can’t travel. We can’t go on lunch dates.
At least not right now.
But as I sit here, just over three weeks after Wynston was nearly mauled to death by a seething beast of an animal, I’m beginning to feel hope again for the future. Hope that we will kayak, we will travel, we will blow up our online store and go on lunch adventures again.
Wynston just underwent a second surgery. This one was more “corrective” than “life-saving,” as the first surgery was. I knew that most likely he would need a skin surgery due to the severity of his traumatic wounds, but it hasn’t been easy.
Dog Steps for Vehicles: Types, Tips for Choosing, When to Use, and More
Several things can undermine the mobility of your dog. Old age, for example, often makes it challenging for a dog to jump onto a raised surface such as the back of a pickup, SUV, or truck.
Apart from that, being a small dog breed means that your four-legged companion will suffer when it comes to getting into vehicles, given their limited leaping ability. And last but not least, injuries, arthritis, among other health-related issues, are sure to make it hard for your pet to move normally.
Luckily, people since have caught wind of this problem and manufactured an array of dog car steps. With these tools, your pup can easily get into your car without straining too much. Using these tools is also straightforward, often requiring a quick attachment of the car step to your vehicle.
That said, there’re tons of car steps for dogs in commercial circulation today, making it hard to identify the ideal item. So, to help, this article provides you with a comprehensive shopper’s guide to help you navigate this tricky market segment.
