Custom Embroidered Collars for Your Stylish Pup

This post is sponsored by Dog Collar World and I received complimentary collars for my pups. All opinions are my own. Much to my husband's dismay, I love dressing up our pups. Every year I look forward to fall and winter because I can dress them in adorable little t-shirts and sweaters; they look so cute! Plus, I can justify it because their breeds don't do well in the cold. The extra layers help keep them warm so he can't argue with me over it too much. During the summer I don't put any clothes on them because it's just too hot. The only … [Read more...]

CBD and Hemp Treatibles for an Anxious Dog

This post has been sponsored by Treatibles who provided me with complimentary hemp treats and donated to , one of our preferred charities. We adopted our chiweenie, Wilkins, from a rescue when he was only 8 weeks old. The poor guy had been through quite a bit of trauma despite being so young. We didn't expect him to have long-lasting effects, but we were wrong. As he got older, we started looking at ways of treating an anxious dog. We hired a dog behaviorist and tried giving him Xanax. Nothing worked.  A few weeks ago I stumbled upon … [Read more...]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PurinaMysteries #CollectiveBias One of our favorite things about the new community we live in is the amazing dog park!

3 Reasons Your Dogs Need a PupJoy Box

Thank you to the beautiful folks to PupJoy for sending my pups a complimentary sweet box of treats! If you haven't ordered your dogs a PupJoy box yet you're missing out on a great pet service. Our second PupJoy box arrived a few days ago and I'm thrilled with the items they sent my pups this month. Unlike other boxes, PupJoy is personalized to your pet's preferences which is why this box went over much better with our dogs than our first (I screwed up the first one). For our first box I had asked PupJoy for tough toys because my dogs love to … [Read more...]

5 Things to Consider Before Getting a Dog

This post includes affiliate links. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Far Beyond Love.  I faced sticker shot at the veterinarian the other day to the tune of $403.85 for annual vaccines as well as 6-month supplies of heart worm and flea/tick medicine. It wasn't a big deal as much as it was a moment of, "$400! For shots and medicine?" and I remembered how much I missed the vet I had when we lived in Florida. She offered a VIP (very important pet) program and for $40 / month all vaccines, regular medications, check-ups, exams, … [Read more...]

My Top Tips for Traveling with Pets

Whenever we travel, Brandon and I always make arrangements to take our dogs with us. It can be tiresome at first but once you learn a few of the tricks it's not so bad. I'm talking about tricks like: Calling ahead to the pet-friendly hotel and asking if they offer dog-walking services. If not, arranging with a local dog-walking service (check for recommendations) to walk your dogs at the hotel while you're out. Remember to pack favorite blankets and toys for your dog so the smell of home follows them to the hotel. … [Read more...]

We Tried PupJoy and My Dogs Loved It

A couple of weeks ago I decided to order a box from PupJoy to try out with my little dogs. I haven't been quite myself lately as I've been feeling a bit less than chipper as I struggle with feelings of inadequacy over yet another year passing without a little one in our family. It's been rough but I try not to dwell on it. I also try not to take it out on my dogs because their poor little sweet souls don't understand my sadness. They do understand that sometimes I want extra cuddles with them and sometimes they will try to lick the tears … [Read more...]
