Dogs In Cars – Preparing For Your Trip

This morning I was having breakfast with my two kids. Mondays are my designated time to watch them. Connor is 3 and Rachel is 1. I take Mondays off and enjoy the quality time that I have with them.

The best way to go about adopting a dog is to pay a visit to your nearest animal shelter. Explain to the staff there, what kind of dog would suit you and your family. Bear in mind that if you have very small children, getting a large dog may not be a good idea.

Label the bins with the appropriate categories, such as whites, darks, towels, delicates etc. You can use separate hampers or laundry baskets for each category, hang separate laundry bags on hooks, or purchase a laundry sorter that has a number of separate compartments. Family members should be responsible for making sure that their dirty clothes hampers get emptied into the proper sorting bin by laundry day.

Simple: Two stainless steel bowls. You will never buy bowls again. Plastic may be cheaper, but it can be chewed up and can harbor bacteria. Ceramic bowls can easily break. Going really cheap? Buy bowls from the thrift store or use old bowls you already own.

Some dogs gnaw and chew. It’s in their nature. If you dog is a chewer then buy a bed that can withstand the trauma and that is safe for your do should he or she ingest any material. Make sure that the materials used for the bed comply with health and sanitary standards.
