At one time, we had a pet snail (I believe I mentioned him before, Slimeny). Not a good pet for us; not a lot of action with a pet snail and we were a family on the move! Not a lot of personality or relationship potential either. And surprisingly (or not) a lot harder to [...]

We are the proud parents of an adopted dog. We got her around this time of year. She is not spectacularly pretty, not an exceptional example of strategic breeding, and definitely not a dog that stops people in their tracks as they pass by eliciting any oohs or ahs. (Fact of the matter is she [...]
It was Saturday, November 24th, just two days past Thanksgiving. A young woman entered our store in The Fig Garden Village, Fresno carrying a small Yorkie.

The following is a story that we have shared a few times during the Thanksgiving season. Whether it is true or not…we’ll let you decide. However, it will remind us that our pets are a part of our holiday celebrations, it will remind us to be careful while we are cooking over the holidays, and [...]

Take a closer look at our adoption partner in Turlock; the Friends of Turlock Animal Shelter. They joined us for our 10th anniversary celebration and are just one of the fine rescue organizations that we have aligned ourselves with. Check ‘em out!
I just recently became a grandparent for the very first time. (insert obligatory applause here) Thank you, thank you but I really didn’t have a whole lot to do with it. It is true, there is no other feeling quite like it. You are so very proud, so moved, and so much in love with [...]
