Pets Improve Your Health!

Anyone suffering from the winter blues or who has chronic health problems may want to consider getting a pet.

There are a many, many benefits for people who own pets. A pet can bring good times and good health to the whole family. Specifically, owning a pet can lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and feelings of loneliness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Likewise, the CDC reports, having a furry friend can increase the amount owners exercise and spend time outdoors, and improve their socialization.

Who can resist a lovable pet? Some people take better care of their pets than they do themselves...

Here's our oldest baby, Sabrina posing in front of our Christmas tree this year. Isn't she a beauty!

Becca got her when she was in Kindergarten; she's 12 this year. She definitely thinks she's a princess. She expects everyone to walk around her and will not move out of your way unless she absolutely has to! lol!

She loves to sit on my lap when I'm on the computer, or for that matter, any time I sit down! Any time that I call Lexi, our dog, Sabrina comes running. She's afraid she'll miss out on something ;)

Clothes for dogs?

Every time my girls see a little dog dressed in dog clothes, they go crazy! Our dog Lexi would never stand for it, but they keep begging for a new, little dog that they can dress up! While that’s not going to happen any time soon, they still enjoy looking at all the dog clothes that are available.

I found the pattern and directions on how to make this adorable little coat over at Sewing @ Circle of Crafters. You can even resize this pattern to fit your dog! That pattern is very simple and should take no time at all to make.

Let me know if anyone uses it to make their pet a nice coat!

New Blog!

Yep, I'm probably crazy, but I've decided to start a new blog.

I love my pets. We have a dog, Lexie, two cats, Sabrina and Isabella and a guinea pig, Scooter. This site will be about them, and will also include tips, ideas and all kinds of information about pets!

Come back often to see what I've added!
