miss piggy

no, not the muppet, i was referring to aoife. after she inhales eats her own meal, she just sits and watches bailey eat. since bailey doesn't always finish her meals, i have to pick up her bowl as soon as she walks away or aoife will devour any leftovers. do you have any piggies in your home?

thanks to the lazy pitbull for hosting 52 snapshots of life blog hop.

product review: ginger lead

last year when bailey had her fall, i needed a tiny little sling to help her walk. we ended up just using her harness and a lanyard because i couldn't find what we needed. the harness supported her front legs but not her hind legs, making her look like a marionette. it was not ideal but it was all we had.

december 2014

this is how she walked, one year ago.

if only i had known about the ginger lead last year. look how much easier it would have been with the proper product. what makes this product superior to the average sling is that it serves a dual purpose. one end has a sling to support the hind legs and the other end attaches to your dog's collar or harness to be used as a leash. and in the middle there is a comfy padded grip for you. it doesn't matter if your dog is tall or short because the leads are fully adjustable. now you can walk your dog and support their hind legs at the same time, with one strap! and in bailey's case, this would mean no more hanging like a marionette!

i met the makers of the ginger lead earlier this year at superzoo. they knew exactly what i went through because they went through the same thing with their golden retriever, ginger. she needed assistance walking after surgery for a luxating patella. necessity is the mother if invention, and when they couldn't find what they needed, they invented it.

this is ginger


i hope you never need such a product, but if you ever do, no matter what size your dog is, giant or tiny, they have a ginger lead for you. and if you can't find them at your local pet shop, they offer quick and FREE shipping on their website. an added bonus is that they are made in the usa!

fyi: ginger lead did not ask me to write this review. in fact, they don't even know i am writing it. i am sharing this product because i think it's a brilliant idea and i know it will help many dogs and their pawrents.

the miracle continues

one year ago bailey couldn't even stand up and look at her now. she is playing with aoife! it only lasted a few minutes, but it happened, and that's all that matters. life is good at casa chihuahua.
