UNCONDITIONAL LOVE This is my Titi. She takes care of me when mommy is away on business trips. She even spends the night with me so that I don’t have to sleep alone. She know how much I like to cuddle when I sleep. The only thing is that when mommy is away I like […]
I own a German Shorthaired Pointer. Her name is Simba. Everyday is an experience living with her. Here I share some of those experiences and joys.
Sleepy Head Simba, now 7 1/2 years old likes to sleep in as much as mommy does. As a pup she was up at 5 am ready to go. Now we enjoy sleeping in on weekends but on weekdays we both struggle to get out of the comfy bed.

DOG ALLERGIES-NATURAL REMEDY Simba has suffered from allergies since she was a puppy. Some allergies seemed to be seasonal like the rash she would get on her chin and flew (upper outer lips). This rash would be very itchy and would end up becoming these large pimple like infected. At first I thought it was […]
Natural Tick Repellent I will be trying this natural tick repellent out with Simba now that the weather has warmed up. I will update you on whether it worked for her or not. Every year she tends to pick up one or two of the nasty critters. I am all for going natural and staying […]

German Shorthair Pointers are known for being attached to their owner, in fact, they’re referred to as the Velcro dog. I am no trainer […]
DOG UNCONTROLLABLY LICKING HER LIPS As I was getting ready for work, Simba began to uncontrollably licking her lips. It was as if she had peanut butter stuck on her nose. She had done this a couple of times before and I was never able to figure out why. I checked her nose to see […]
My Dear Simba, I am having a great time on vacation but mommy misses you. I really needed to get away to relieve some stress and relax. I wish you could have come along. You would have enjoyed chasing all the iguanas around. I miss you very much. I miss your greetings when I walk […]
Dogs are the most amazing creatures on earth. They are probably the only beings that love others more than themselves. Dogs are pure innocence. They are not capable of betrayal, jealousy, hate, meanness, or cruelty. They are loyal without expecting anything in return. A dog’s love and dedication is pure and comes without strings attached.

When my kids were born, their dad and I would ask ourselves, “I wonder if all parents think that only their babies are beautiful and perfect?” I sometimes wonder that about Simba. I have had dogs all my life but none have come close to being such a part of me as Simba has. She […]
