Basil’s Favorite Things Special Edition Monday! — WagAware

Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyones weekend was a great one and if it was sunny where you are, I hope you got to get out there and enjoy the coming of Spring. Today I am doing a very special edition of Basil’s Favorite Things. As you know this feature usually comes on Fridays but I stumbled upon something this morning and it could not wait!


WagAware is a online company that sells über adorable dog charms. Okay, I know what your thinking… ” Um, why couldn’t this wait until Friday? They are just dog charms!” And you would be right IF they were just dog charms but they are so much more then that!

These charms, which also glow in the dark (!!!), are not just stylish but also help support some amazing dog charities. WagAware donates 50% of all their proceeds to pet based charities like American Humane Association, Canine Companions for Independence, and American Bulldog Rescue. Donations to date have reached $19,500. This week WagAware will be donating 50% of all sales to Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. Basil loves boxers and we love to support local rescue groups. Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue is a very worthy charity and we are beyond happy to help support them as well as WagAware. 276442_137987256230893_1695626341_n

Head over to WagAware and order charms for all your four legged children. If you buy 2 or more you’ll save 10% and shipping is free on all orders!

I ordered Basil’s this morning and I can’t wait to add it to his collar. Once we receive it I’ll post a ton of photos of the cute overload.

So now do you understand why it couldn’t wait until Friday? Okay, I knew you would get it! Now, don’t wait, go get your WagAware charm right now!

Happy Presidents Day!

Happy Happy 4th Birthday Basil!

Today my little Boston travel hound is the big 04! We are celebrating with a new rope toy, tons of treats, and peanut butter & carrot pup-cakes! A DIY how-to making these dog friendly cupcakes will be posted later today.

So make sure to wish Basil a very happy birthday day so this cute face doesn’t feel like his is getting old!

Basil meets Santa!

Last night was pet photos with Santa at the local mall. We got dressed up and fought the wind, rain and traffic so we could have our first family photo with jolly one himself.

Basil loves places like malls and really any shop that allows dogs, so he was beyond excited. Not only did he get to see Santa but he also got to say “hello” to other dogs and a few adorable babies while in line. Once it was our turn Basil pulled me to Santa, he was ready to go. We adjusted our hair and Basil’s brand new Chilly Dog sweater and took a seat. After that is was just a few squeaks of a dog toy and clicks of the camera and we were done.

All the photos came out great and the one below was the chosen one! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and if you are in the Carolina’s and still need your own photo with Santa make sure to check out Santa Max at the Carolina Place mall. Also, makes sure to head over to his Facebook and like him there as well! 

Happy 15th day until Christmas!

Travel well, Nap well, Live well!

A case of the Boston Mondays!

We are suffering from a serious case of the Mondays! But if the Mondays are going to be this cute, I think we can handle it!
