Mmmm....pumpkin! Harvest is here for our northern furfriends and with it the silly season of all things pumpkin (and pumpkin spice), but here in New Zealand we like to enjoy pumpkin all year round. Pumpkin is delicious and nutritious, and we like to keep some cooked cubed pumpkin on hand in the freezer for quick and convenient use in baking/cooking for both humans and dogs.

Using a Dog Stroller for Better Senior Quality of Life

Two dalmatian dogs on a walking trail with a large dog stroller

Life with a senior dog is filled with love, but also the sadness of watching them struggle or miss out on things that used to bring them joy.  When Oli started slowing down and retired from being my running buddy, we adapted to life by taking him on a separate walk if Humphrey and I were running.  As he slowed further, separate walkies become our daily norm. It's time consuming, but it gives both dogs the types of exercise they need and enjoy. Now the time has come to include a stroller in our exercise equipment for a better (and safer) senior quality of life. Here's the scoop on our stroller (good and bad) and adjusting to stroller life.
