American Bully PULLER Action!

American Bully PULLER Action!


Posted By on Aug 12, 2018

Recently I was asked by the creators of the Puller dog toy if I would review this toy for them – as in get some Puller action from my American Bully. So they sent me a couple of them to test out King. King’s breed LOVES this type of play especially since they were designed to do this very thing. My female Schatzie (Carolina Dog) isn’t a bit interested lol but she gets tail waggin’ happy when she watches us play...

Happy CALM 4th For Your Dog

Happy CALM 4th For Your Dog


Posted By on Jul 4, 2018

Today is THAT holiday that can really cause some fear in dogs. Here are a couple of graphics that can help you keep your dog happy and calm for the 4th. I have used the YL oils since 2004 so I trust them and have had really great results with them. I prefer to pet along the spine and avoid the ears (behind the ears I have done and behind the paws as well as this post suggests). Here is a video on calming oils I did a couple of years...

Schatzie the Carolina Dog – the consummate aging predator 😂🐕she’s just strolling on home from our daily walk honoring the health law of exercise.

We’re in extreme drought so he feeds them. When I...

The Howling Game, Pt2

The Howling Game, Pt2


Posted By on Apr 16, 2018

This is the Howling Game (on video this time) that King and I do all the time. I had to stealth videotape because if he sees it he’ll stop lol. So sadly it is facing sideways. Sometimes this game can last five (5) minutes or longer. The more in depth and varied my howls are, the more his are too. King also won’t do this game if my husband is home or if he thinks my husband is in the house. He is Donnie’s sidekick but he...

The bully life can be RUFF 😂💖😎 – this isn’t his best side lol. He’d be so embarrassed if he knew I took this photo. Full breakfast belly (raw fed dogs LOVE their food!). King doesn’t have to be told to follow the laws of health, sunbathing is one of his favorite pastimes as you can see! Since King’s CCL tear and wearing a brace he’s been able to gain back almost his full exercise daily so he’s...

This personal journey on CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament) tears/ruptures in dogs part one, is going to be a LONG post. It dates back to November 2015 and features our very special “little man” King, our American Bully. The CCL is an important ligament in the stifle joint (knee) of the dog, so when it tears or ruptures that results in partial or complete joint instability, pain, and lameness. Unfortunately it is happening to...
