Integrity Orthopedic Memory Foam Joint Relief Bolster Dog Bed Review

Having a large dog makes buying dog beds a royal pain in the you know what. I have a Golden Lab and she is on the obese side of the scale. Even when she wasn't obese though buying her a bed was a pain. There are so many cute beds out there, but they are for smaller dogs.

We started to settle for using an old blanket as her bed upstairs and a bed almost big enough to hold her in the living room. She prefers the … [Read more...]

Survive Nasty Fall Weather With Netflix #streamteam

Recently we have had quite the nasty run of rainy days here. These kinds of drab days can provoke house cleaning, organization, or just help to induce a vegetative state in which everyone seems to laze around the house.
