Jetting Without My Dog

Poor Phoebe is disappointed that she won't be going with me to Jacksonville Florida to visit K9's  for Warriors.


Phoebe won't be joining me on my trip with Bayer Animal Health to visit K9's for Warriors
Why won't you take me with you?  Look how good I behave in the carrier!
I have the privilege of being invited by Bayer Animal Health to pay a visit to K9's for Warriors.  I was going to bring Phoebe along but some logistical snafu's made me change my mind.  Sorry sweetie, it's best if you stay home this time around.

👉 K9's for Warriors is the nation's leading provider of Service Dogs for American Veterans struggling with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disability).  They're a tax exempt 501c3 organization

👉 They are dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11.

👉 One of the things I love about the program is that so many of the dogs they pair with Veterans are Shelter Dogs!  K9's for Warriors trains these rescue dogs at their facility to prepare them for service to Veterans in need.

👉 K9's for Warriors goal is to empower these Veterans to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.

I'm excited to tour their facility and learn more about their process and all the great work they due to help Veterans!  

Thank you to Bayer Animal Health for inviting us to join your visit with K9's for Warriors!

Proud member of the Bayer Animal Health Pet Influencer Team!   We've been invited to visit K9's for Warriors to lean more about how they train shelter dogs to provide service to Veterans with PTSD.

A Guide To Dog Friendly Fall Adventures

I have always loved the Fall, but I'll admit I took it for granted year after year.  Only after living in Phoenix, Arizona for nearly 10 years did I really appreciate the joy of a majestic Fall season.  In Phoenix they joke that there are only two seasons; Hot and Hotter!

Although we loved living in Phoenix, we soon missed the blazing beauty of the Autumn leaves.  Even driving on the highways you can't help but be struck by Fall's gorgeous hues. The bright yellows, fiery reds, and deep rust tones create a stunning landscape against cool, crisp, sunny skies.

Fall is a great time for outdoor adventures with dogs!  This is a Guide To Great Dog Friendly Fall Adventures With Dogs.
Enjoying the beauty of Fall with Icy and Phoebe
I love outdoor activities with my dogs in every season.  Each season is special, with it's own brand of fun things to do with your pet unique to that season.

Fall is one of the best times to embark on outdoor fun activities and adventures with dogs! The weather is cooler and the Summer crowds have thinned out.

As October approaches we start thinking about Pumpkins, Hiking & Biking in cool weather, Fall Festivals & Costume Parades, Apple Picking, Corn Mazes, Fall Foliage, and Hay Rides!  So much FUN and bonding to be had with our pets during the Fall season! 

Here's a list of some great Fall activities to do with dogs.  Plan your Fall adventures now before the season of Autumn beauty is gone!


Fall is a beautiful time of year.  There are so many great activities to do with your dog in the Fall!  You need the right gear to enjoy it all.

FUN ACTIVITIES TO DO WITH YOUR DOG THIS FALL


Be ready for outdoor Fall activities with dogs by having the right gear!  For all that outdoor fun with the dog, you want to make sure your dog is comfortable and safe!

The two activities I look forward to the most with our dogs are hiking and bike riding.  We hike and bike in summer, but heat and humidity often makes us keep hiking and biking trips with the dogs short.  Not so in the Fall, here's when we go all out!


BIKE RIDING WITH DOGS


Bicycle riding with your dog is a great activity, but you should do it safely.  Dogs have a habit of getting too close to the wheels of the bicycle or crossing out in front of the bike.  To avoid an accident I bought a Bicycle Leash for Icy.  A bike leash for dogs keeps your dog next to the bike and away from the wheels!  I use the Walky Dog Plus bike leash, but there are a few others on the market.  I couldn't find dog bike leashes in bicycle stores (weird, right?!), but a Google search pulled up several.  Walmart has a couple of them in their online store as well.

A Bike Leash for dogs helps you ride a bicycle with your dog safely.  #dogs #petsafety #bikewithdogs
Icy gets so excited when she see's my bicycle come out!

A bike leash for dogs helps you bicycle ride safely with dogs.  It prevents dogs from getting too close to the bike or it's wheels. #dogfriendly #dog
My Walky Dog Plus dog bike leash helps me bike ride safely with Icy

Icy and I can usually bike ride from early Fall through December in the Northeast.  In this video you can see how the bike leash keeps her at a safe distance from the bicycle.



Bike riding with your dog is not only a total blast, it has health benefits for both of you!  Need more reasons to bike ride with dogs? Here are 6 Reasons To Bike Ride With Your Dog!

Icy and Phoebe are two very different dogs in size, strength and endurance.  I can't bike ride with both of them together on bike leashes, but I can attach a Pet Basket for Bicycles to my bike for Phoebe!  That way she can join us for the ride and not feel left out.  PetSmart sells bicycle baskets for small dogs (or other small pets) online.  They have a few models, here's a really nice one:

Active gear for dogs.  This Bicycle Pet Basket attaches to a bicycle and allows you to take your small dog or other small pet along for a bicycle ride!

HIKING WITH DOGS


We've done so much awesome hiking with our dogs, from Sedona, Arizona to Montauk, Long Island with tons of places in between!  I have to say, hiking is probably my favorite activity to do with the dogs.  I love to get out and explore nature with them.  It's a great activity for the 4 of us to do together.  Although Icy and Phoebe are active at different levels, hiking is something they can easily do together.   If Icy and my husband forge ahead, it's no big deal to stop and wait for Phoebe and I to catch up.


DOG CLOTHING AND OUTERWEAR


When I think about my dogs being safe and comfortable during outdoor Fall activities, the first thing I think about is clothing and outerwear.  Being a Siberian Husky, Icy pretty much never needs dog apparel of any kind!  As soon as Fall weather arrives however, Phoebe gets chilly.  I always have to break out a sweater or jacket for her when the weather turns cool.  I love shopping for Phoebe, it's so much fun!  They have the cutest clothing for dogs, especially for smaller dogs.
How cute are these soft cozy Mohawk dog Sweaters?! This image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link.

For cold Fall mornings, or if there's a chance of rain, your pooch might need a waterproof coat w/ a fleece lining like this adorable one.  It has reflective striping on the back & sleeves for dog safety. This image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link.


When we go on longer hikes, I often use a dog backpack for Icy.  It helps with carrying gear like water bottles, snacks, bowls, and waste bags.  It also help curtail her pulling on leash.  Many dogs pull on their leash and using a backpack is one way some trainers recommend reducing the pulling.  Be sure to check with a trainer or pet store staff on how much weight in the pack is appropriate for your dog, if any.  You don't want to put more than approximately 10% of the dogs weight in a dog's backpack.

We often use a backpack for icy when we go on long hikes.  It helps keep her from pulling like a sled dog and she can carry her water bowl, water, and snacks allowing us to hike hands-free!
Some dogs may require less weight or none at all in a backpack. Check with your Veterinarian before using a weighted backpack on your dog for the first time.  Here are more tips to get your dog to Stop Pulling On Leash.

The stylish Everest Dog Pack by Pet Life shown here is waterproof and has reflective strips on the sides for safety.  You may not consider reflective safety strips when hiking but more than once we've found ourselves still hiking in the desert just after the sun had set.  Sunset in the Arizona desert is often when coyotes (and other animals) start hunting.  We could hear the howling - yikes!!
A dog backpack can not only carry some of your dog supplies & gear, it can help discourage leash pulling. This image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link.

Make sure you bring plenty of water on any outing with dogs! Don't forget to bring along portable bowls and a water bottle.

SAFETY FIRST!


Fall is actually prime season for Fleas and Ticks!  Be sure to protect your dog with Flea & Tick control. K9 Advantix is a topical prevention & treatment for ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, biting flies and lice.  Note: Consult your Vet before you begin using any flea/tick product.

Fall is prime Tick and Flea season!  K9 advantix can help protect your dog all season long. This image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link.  


If you plan to take your dog near beaches, lakes, ponds, pools. or out on a boat you may want to consider a Life Jacket for Dogs.  A life jacket is a great safety option for dogs around water, especially if your dog is unfamiliar with the area, isn't a strong swimmer, or if he'll be out on a boat.

This Kurgo Surf 'n Turf life vest doubles as a life vest or rain coat.  It has 2 handles to help get your dog in and out of the water, reflective trim, and 2 metal D-rings for leash connections.  The flotation layer can be removed so that the waterproof shell can be used as a raincoat!
If outdoor Fall adventures with your dog take you anywhere near water, consider a dog Life Jacket for pet safety. This image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link.


If your Fall adventure with your dog involves a car ride or a weekend getaway, consider a Dog Carrier or Pet Crate and a Pet Safety Harness for the car.

PET CARRIERS AND CRATES


There are SO many beautiful and versatile pet carriers to choose from these days.  Pet carriers come in lots of shapes and sizes, some models even have wheels.  A carrier or crate is a great way to keep your pet safe and secure while riding in the car or at the airport.  If your Fall adventure involves taking your dog or cat on an airplane, here is some information you should know; Tips For Air Travel With Pets.

Phoebe loves her Sherpa pet carrier!  I actually leave it open for her on the floor in my office so she can nap right next to me.
Dog carriers with wheels are so cool, especially for airplane travel with pets.  Image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link


Outdoor Fall adventures with the dogs usually come with mud, sand, or dirt!  For all those great outdoor Fall adventures with your pup, make sure you protect your car seats with a Car Seat Cover like the one shown here from Kurgo!  They come in all sizes to fit pretty much any vehicle you've got.

Outdoor adventures with dogs almost always involve mud, sand and dirt!  Investing in a quality seat cover like this one from Kurgo is a great idea. Image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link.

Even if you have a car seat cover don't forget to bring along Pet Wipes and a Towel or Paper Toweling. You'll probably want to get the dirt off their paws before going back into the house after a day of  outdoor fun & adventure!  I always have pet wipes in the car and in my backpack, you just never know what your dog will roll in, step in, or swim in!  If there's anything massively stinky to roll in, my dogs are sure to find it!

One of the things I can't do without on any of our adventures with the dogs is a First Aid Kit.  I can't tell you how many times we've traveled with our dogs or gone on long day trips and needed the First Aid Kit!  It's essential to get a pet first aid kit, or assemble one yourself.  I'll never forget the time Icy cut her paw open on broken glass on her last potty break of the day.  It was at a hotel in Albuquerque, around 11pm.  No Veterinarian's were available and our first aid kit literally saved us!  Paw pads bleed a lot more than I expected!
A First Aid Kit is essential for outdoor adventures with dogs.   This Image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link

The first aid kit pictured here is a 50 piece kit that folds up to fit into a backpack or glove compartment.  It includes a guide with instructions on how to assist a pet with minor medical emergencies.  We never home without a first aid kit!

Anther fun Fall activity is to head for your favorite dog friendly cafe for a mug of steaming hot spiced apple cider.  While you relax and enjoy that delicious traditional Fall beverage, your dog can enjoy a special chew stick or her favorite toy right beside you.

Pumpkin picking is a perennial Fall favorite, so look for a dog friendly farm and take your dog pumpkin picking!  I love taking pictures of my dogs out in the field among the bright orange pumpkins, the photos come out so pretty with all that Fall color. Rich Fall color brings so much warmth to a photo.

One thing we look forward to all year in our area are the Fall Festivals and Pet Costume Parades  It's so much fun to see all the dogs out and about, trotting alongside their family enjoying the festivities.  A Pet Costume parade is always fun.  Some people are really clever in the costumes they create for their pets!  It's so inspiring.

Icy marched in our town's Pet Halloween Costume parade looking BOO-tiful in her Headless Horseman costume! 
I'll bet one of this year's hottest Pet Halloween Costumes will be Wonder Woman for the girls and Spider Man or Super Man for the boys.  Do you dress your pet up for Halloween?  What will your dog, cat, lizard, or other pet be for Halloween this year? Tell us in the comments!
Wonder Woman Pet Costume for Halloween  #pets #halloween #dogcostume
I love the little skirt on this Womder Woman costume, it's so cute! Image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link 
You don't even have to leave your own yard to enjoy the beauty of Fall with your pet.  Rake up the leaves in your yard and let your dog or cat play in them!  Throw his favorite ball or toy into the pile and watch him have fun digging and jumping through the leaves to retrieve the prize.  So what if you have to rake the leaves up again, it's worth it!

This Fall, I'm making it my goal in life to find a dog friendly Hay Ride and Corn Maze!  I've been searching online and I've located a few corn mazes, but I need to call and see if they allow dogs.  I'm on the hunt for a hay ride that allows dogs, here in the suburbs of New York City!

I'm excited to see some Fall themed pet treats this year, like Greenies Pumpkin Spice flavored Dental Chews for Dogs!  No reason why our pets shouldn't enjoy the flavors of the season, right?  While you enjoy a mug of hot apple cider at an outdoor cafe, give your dog a pumpkin spice flavored treat to enjoy and celebrate Fall together!

Pumpkin Spice flavor dental treats.  Our pets should enjoy the flavors of the Fall season too! This Image contains a PetSmart Affiliate Link

If you have the time and energy, you can make your own dog treats with Fall themed flavors like pumpkin, apple, or pear.

I take advantage of all those freshly picked pumpkins of Fall.  I add some pure pumpkin to my dogs' food each morning to give them the health benefits of pumpkin all year round. In the Fall I make my own pumpkin mush for them from the fresh pumpkins we bring home.  If you've never made fresh pumpkin  mush yourself, you'd be surprised at how much pumpkin mush even a very small pumpkin can yield!

Phoebe, surrounded by beautiful pumpkins at our town's Fall Festival!
🐾 After removing the seeds inside, I cut a fresh pumpkin into large chunks and boil until the pieces are soft.  

🐾 Then I peel off the outer skin (Skin comes off easily after boiling) and mash it all up in a bowl.  You can puree it in a blender if you prefer

🐾 Cooked pumpkin freezes well so it should last a couple of months in the freezer.  

Always check with your Veterinarian before introducing any new food into your pet's diet. Never feed raw pumpkin to your pet, raw pumpkin can make them sick.

Remember Me Thursday; The Dogs Who Don't Get Adopted

Thank goodness for No Kill shelters and the lost or abandoned pets lucky enough to end up in one.  However, so many lost, abandoned, or surrendered dogs, cats, and other pets don't end up in shelters that are No Kill.  They don't end up in the places that will keep them until a home can be found no matter how long it takes. These unlucky pets are in a place where the clock never stops ticking.  They are running out of time.

Remember Me Thursday is a day dedicated to raising awareness of pet adoption and remembering the pets who lost their lives in shelters waiting for a home that never came. Please #AdoptDontShop when possible
Please HELP shine a light on all the pets waiting in shelters to be adopted
On REMEMBER ME THURSDAY we remember and honor the pets that have run out of time and lost their lives in animal shelters that live by the clock.  

People ask Why?  Why can't we save them all?  It's a question with no clear answer.  My question isn't just Why can't we save them all, but Why do so many pets end up without homes in the first place? and What is the root cause of this problem? Those are my questions.  There is no one answer, there are a variety of reasons pets end up homeless.  Some reasons are valid, many are senseless.  


Phoebe is a rescue dog, adopted from a county shelter in Phoenix Arizona.  Today we remember all the dogs and cats in shelters who never found their forever homes.  #RememberMeThursday
I rescued my beautiful girl Phoebe from a county shelter in Arizona.  She had an extreme fear of men, but with patience, love, and a little time she blossomed into the most loving, friendly dog!  She is such a joy, I'm so glad she joined our family.

The reality is that  homeless animals are suffering in shelters through no fault of their own.  The reality is that every day, many of these homeless dogs, cats, and other homeless pets die in shelters because they have run out of time.  

Today, on REMEMBER ME THURSDAY, we remember those animals and try to raise awareness of their plight.


Adorable Gracie is still waiting for a loving home

Do you, or someone you know, have room in your heart and your home for any of these dogs, who have still not found forever homes?


This beautiful shelter dog, Gracie has been waiting way too long for a home and a family to love.
Gracie has been waiting a long time for a home.  You can find her at the Bideawee animal shelter in New York. Learn more about this sweet, shy girl HERE.

This beautiful rescue dog, Pace, has been waiting since early 2016 to find his forever home and a family to love and care for him.  Too many dogs in shelters never find a home.
Handsome Pace has been waiting for a home since early 2016.  This goofy, energetic guy was transported from Alabama, but is currently in the Bideawee shelter in New York.  Learn more about Pace HERE.


This beautiful dog, ICE, has been waiting to be adopted from the shelter since 2015!  She deserves a chance for love, a home and a family.  She's had such a sad life. If you have room in your home or your heart, please contact the Town of Hempstead NY shelter


These two photos are of ICE, who has been waiting since early 2015 for a home!  She's a beautiful Hound mix who lived her life outdoors, chained to a tree day and night.  Her owner surrendered her when the weather became too cold for Ice to reasonably remain outdoors.  Ice knows basic the commands Sit, Down, Stay, and Drop It.  Living in a cage for over 2 years is no way for a dog to live, she desperately needs a home!

You'll find ICE waiting for a loving home at the  Town Of Hempstead Animal Shelter in New York.  Sadly, this beautiful girl is the 4th longest resident at the shelter.





Please share to help these dogs find homes.  They deserve to be loved and have been waiting far too long for loving homes.

Dogs Playing in Fall Leaves

FALL, WHERE ARE YOU??  

It's been in the 80's in New York for the last two weeks, c'mon Mother Nature hit us with some FALL already!



Phoebe loves play in the leaves!

If you love Fall as much as we do .....

Fall, or Autumn as some prefer, is a great time to take a special trip with your dog.  The Summer crowds have thinned out and the weather is cool and crisp.  

🐶 How about a Fall trip to dog friendly Montauk  or The Hamptons in New York?  
🐶 History buffs that love witches, ghosts, and goblins, can bring the dog along on a "Witch Hunt" in Salem, Massachusetts.  
🐶 A weekend getaway to historical Colonial Williamsburg is a fun and educational vacation for the whole family.  

🐶 If you're on the West coast, Fall is the perfect time to visit Sedona, Arizona.  The scenic beauty will literally take your breath away!  The miles and miles of dog friendly hiking will keep your dog's tail wagging with sheer joy. 

We took Icy and Phoebe to all these places, each one warmly welcomed our dogs!

What is your dog's favorite activity to do in the Fall? Please leave us a comment and share!

Dog Friendly Sunset Boat Cruise

Have you ever taken your dog on a Doggie Sunset Boat Cruise?  Some of you may remember me saying that one of my goals this Summer was to take my dogs out on a boat. Icy and Phoebe have never been on a boat before and that was one of my top adventure goals for them.  But life got hectic and the Summer flew by so fast, I didn't make that goal.

My dog Phoebe's first boat ride was a Dog Friendly Sunset Cruise around the harbor.  It was so much fun, and she loved it! #dogfriendly #dogs
Phoebe's First Boat Ride!
When I heard about a Doggie Sunset Cruise not too far from our house, it sounded like the perfect first step to finally getting my dogs out on the water!  I had planned to take both Icy and Phoebe on the boat ride, but at the last minute I decided to take just Phoebe. I wanted to see what it was like before bringing Icy along.  Phoebe is so easy, she only weighs 11 lbs and virtually nothing phases her.   For a first step in getting my dogs out on a boat, I felt a larger boat with a smaller dog was the right way to go!


We took our dog on a dog friendly Sunset Boat Cruise on Captain Lou's Fleet in Freeport, Long Island NY  #dogs
Our boat for the Doggie Sunset Cruise on Captain Lou's Fleet in Freeport, New York

WHAT DOES ONE WEAR ON A DOG FRIENDLY BOAT CRUISE?


I wasn't asking that question for me, I was wondering what Phoebe should wear?  We had just been to Jones Beach a few days before and although it's end of season, the surf shop was still open.  They had some onesies for babies on sale at half price -  what luck!  I found this adorable Jones Beach Lifeguard onesie in a 6 months size.  I just cut off the bottom part that snaps and voila!  Phoebe had a cute nautical themed shirt.  Doesn't she look adorable!?  I think red is her color.


I took Phoebe on a dog friendly boat cruise.  She had to look the part so I got her this adorable Jones Beach Lifeguard shirt!  #dogfriendly
Phoebe looked adorable in this Jones Beach Lifeguard shirt, perfect for her first boat ride

As we explored this part of the boat deck, it kind of reminded me of that famous scene in the Titanic movie - you know the one I mean!  If I had a giant blue diamond necklace I'd have pitched it overboard, just for the romance of it! 

My dog Phoebe's first boat ride was a Doggie Sunset Cruise, a beautiful ride around Freeport harbor in Freeport NY  #dogfriendly #dogs
Standing out way out on above the water reminded me of the Titanic movie!
I didn't have a giant blue diamond necklace on me, so we just enjoyed the view from the front of the boat, the part that sticks way out into the water - I think that's called the "bulbous bow"?  Any boat experts out there know if that's the right name for what we're standing on in these two photos?



MAKING NEW FRIENDS ON THE BOAT


Phoebe loved meeting this beautiful little dog named Miracle out on deck.  She's the sweetest girl!


Phoebe made lots of other doggie friends too! Most of the dogs were really relaxed and friendly. Here's Phoebe chillaxin' with a small group of seaworthy dog friends she met on the boat.  I loved that so many of the dogs were dressed in nautical themed outfits - check out the tiny sailor hats on the two Shih Tzu's on the right!  I have GOT to get one of those hats for Phoebe's next ocean excursion!


WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN ON THE HARBOR


As the sun set, we cruised past the beautiful lights shining from homes and restaurants along the harbor.  It was so calm and peaceful with the lights reflecting off the water.


We loved taking our dog Phoebe on a dog friendly Sunset Boat Cruise on Captain Lou's Fleet from Freeport, Long Island #dogfriendly #dog
Sailing along Freeport harbor, enjoying beautiful lights on the water during our dog friendly boat cruise
It was a little intimidating when we cruised under the drawbridge they had to raise for our boat to fit underneath it.  Especially since they alert everyone with a really loud siren just before the bridge goes up - I didn't realize what was happening at first!  I've lived on Long Island my whole life, but I honestly have never gone beneath a drawbridge as it was going up.  It's pretty cool as you pass directly under the bridge and look UP!

Although it was overcast that evening, we still saw a lovely sunset!  I'm so glad we finally got out on the water with at least one of our dogs.  I can't wait to go again, and I hope to get Icy on a boat soon too!
