I've come to realize that one of the biggest reasons people follow me on Instagram is for pics of our dog, Odin. They don't like my selfies (shocking) or my food and party pics. They barely tolerate my home decor. BUT upload a pic of Odin,...Read More
Removing Great Stuff Spray Foam From Hair/Dog Fur.
Having a dog is akin to having a gaggle of small children.

El Granto and I knew long before we bought our house that we wanted a dog. In fact, one of the requirements for our future home was a yard for our future dog. We both had dogs growing up, and were anxious to bring home a new member of the family. However, there was the problem...Read More
