Made me smile – hope it did the same for you as you toil through your Monday. Until next time, Good day, and good dog!
Remember that moving inspiration series I started, like, two years ago? Yep, that one. We’d just gotten approved for our loan, I was pregnant with Emmett, and we were on the hunt for our very first single family home after living in a townhouse for many years. I decided to start a series here where I shared interiors I’d discovered online, room by room, as a way to get inspired and pumped to decorate our soon-to-be new home. We had some trouble finding homes we liked (translate: didn’t need massive amounts of work) in our budget in the (admittedly expensive) area where we live, but we kept the series going as we continued to search. And then, life happened. In a two year period, there were so many serious illnesses (including our own son) and deaths in our immediate family, on top of the regular craziness of having another baby and Robbie’s tour schedule with the band and my work schedule and just regular life stuff, that buying a new home just got pushed back, again and again. Until now. It’s a long story, but we have less than a month to find a home and seal the deal. And I’m pretty nervous about it, because as of right now, there isn’t much available. But I want to stay positive about it (I’m gonna manifest the perfect house, damn it; or at least one that we don’t completely hate) – so here I am, back at this series.
Today I’m not focusing on a specific room. I’m just sharing some interiors I find particularly beautiful. They’re spaces that make me feel inspired to create something we love out of whatever we’re given. Each of them has something that reminds me that even if it’s not ideal, wherever we end up will be ours (with a yard for my kids, please universe), and that’s good enough. Hopefully the next post in this series will be a really happy one where I’m telling you guys how we found a home we really like. In the meantime, we’ll take any good vibes you have to send our way.
Here’s the trailer. You can catch the whole movie on YouTube. Worth the 1.5 hours it takes to see the whole thing. #NeverForget Until next time, Good day, and good dog!
On Sunday, May 7th over 1,300 people and 900 dogs attended the 4th Annual PuppyUp Madison Walk at McKee Farms in Fitchburg, WI. This is the largest PuppyUp Walk the Foundation holds each year, and each year the PuppyUp Madison Team surpasses their goals.
Well, this has certainly been the week of action in the skies, starting with Monday’s eclipse (when Irie posed with eclipse glasses after the fact…she was busy napping during the…

A lot of people wonder what type of human food they should feed their Golden. Even though many prefer to stick with dog food and only dog food, there are certain types of human food that Golden Retrievers love – and is actually good for them. Golden’s crave attention as we all know – and when they watch you eat it never hurts to give them a bite – as long as you know what they should and shouldn’t consume with their diets.
For your Golden’s health, feeding him foods such as chicken, raw vegetables, turkey, brown rice, fruits, and oatmeal are always great. Even though we think of these type foods as “human food”, they are actually good for many animals as well. All dogs have taste buds and noses, meaning that they get very excited when they see you with food.
If your Golden Retriever runs to the refrigerator when you open it up, he’s trying to tell you that he smells something good. Even though he may run to the refrigerator, he isn’t begging for food as many think, he is simply wanting to have some real food. Once your Golden starts to do this, you should give him some of what he wants. Although most real food is great for Golden’s, there are some that aren’t quite so good.
If you feed your Golden a large amount of egg white in his diet, he will get a deficiency in biotin, which is a B vitamin, due to the amount of avidin, which is a very destructive substance. If you are feeding your Golden Retriever egg yolks, you shouldn’t worry as the effects of avidin will be offset by the high biotin levels that are found in egg yolks. You can also feed your Golden egg shells as well, as they contain a large amount of protein. If you want the best for your Golden – try feeding him raw eggs – with the shell intact.
Any form of Chocolate
We all know never to feed chocolate to any type of animal. Chocolate contains bromine, which is very toxic to both dogs and cats. Unsweet chocolate is by far the worst to feed to your Golden, as it contains a large amount of bromine. Bromine is a very harmful chemical, one that normally leads to death of your animal should he be fed any type of chocolate.
There are other foods out there that can be good or harmful to your Golden. If you have any questions, you should always ask your veterinarian. Your vet will be able to recommended real food that is beneficial to your Golden, as well as foods you should avoid. You can experiment with real food if you like – although you should never allow your Golden Retriever to consume any type of chocolate.

Once you have helped your Golden Retriever build up his immune system, he will be healthy and strong enough to fend off any type of illness. There are ways that you can help your Golden with his immune system, which is more or less what you feed him. If you care about your Golden Retriever and want to help him develop a strong immune system – you’ll find this information very helpful.
When you feed your Golden, give him some homemade food. You can substitute this for canned food, or mix it in together. Homemade food tastes a lot better to your dog, and it contains a lot of the nutrients and vitamins he needs. When you give him water, give him spring water. Although many prefer to give their Golden water from the faucet, spring water is actually a lot better for him than any other type of water.
When you give him a treat or a bone, you should always give him raw bones with plenty of meat on the bone, as they will help him to develop a strong set of white teeth. Teeth are very important with Golden Retrievers, which is why you want to make sure that his teeth stay strong and healthy. If you give him a bone a day, he will have plenty to chew on to keep his teeth healthy. You can also use chew toys as well, especially when you are playing with him, as they will help him to develop strength in his jaws.
You can also help to keep your Golden Retriever healthy by knowing a bit about health problems that he could have. This way, you’ll able to keep track of what your vet diagnoses. If your vet tells you something that is wrong with your Golden, you should know a little bit about what he tells you, and how you can help to take care of the problem.
To help your Golden Retriever avoid any type of reproductive problems, you should look into having a male neutered. Reproductive problems are common with Golden’s, and can lead to more serious problems if you don’t do something about it. If you aren’t planning to breed your Golden Retriever, you should have him neutered as soon as you can, to help prevent any type of reproductive problems.
If you take care of your dog and keep him healthy, he will live a lot longer. You should always strive to keep your dog healthy, so he can live a pain free life. As long as you feed him a proper diet and let him get plenty of exercise, he will stay strong and healthy. Golden Retrievers that grow to be strong and healthy make great pets, as they can join you in exercise and provide plenty of fun for your entire family.
