Golden Greetings

I think it’s safe to say that every greeting card aisle has at least one Golden Retriever card – nothing brings a smile to your face like a Golden! Here are the Valentine’s Brad and I exchanged this year.. no surprise here!

Happy Birthday America!

Just wanted to share this adorable photo I found on the internet. Wishing you and your pups a Happy 4th of July! We are the land of the free because of the brave, thank you to all who have served – including my husband Brad! Brad’s company Veteran Design designed this blog, they offer special military discounts and donate a portion of their profits to Snowball Express.


Fright of Fireworks

Is your dog afraid of fireworks? We found out Quincey was afraid last Fourth of July.. the hard way. Last year was our first Fourth of July with Quincey, he was never afraid of loud noises before so we didn’t even think that he would get spooked from fireworks. We took him to my parents house to celebrate the holiday, and went to the golf course behind their home with the rest of the family to watch the big firework show. Quincey wasn’t leashed because he never leaves Brad side. However, the first pop of the firework caused Quincey to bolt. He disappeared into my parent’s dark neighborhood, and wouldn’t come when we called his name – and we couldn’t find him for 2 HOURS! My parents live in a really dark neighborhood with no street lights, so it was impossible to find him. We were driving up and down the neighborhood, searching in people’s yards with flashlights (causing one neighbor to call the police – no joke!) – I was a wreck!  Finally, Brad got a call on his cell phone from a neighbor who found him by their front door, and called the number on Quincey’s collar. The best phone call we have ever received!!

Bottom line, even if you think your dog is the bravest of them all – LEASH YOUR DOG if you are going to be outside this holiday. You never know how they will react. It is best to keep them indoors if you can, and leave the TV on for them to distract them from the loud noises. Here is a great article on other tips on protecting your dog this Independence Day.

Wishing you and your pup a happy and safe Fourth of July!!
