The Best Time to Work Out with your Dog

The Best Time to Work Out with your Dog

Exercising your dog consistently is one of the keys (along with diet) to keeping them fit and healthy.  Heck, consistent exercise and proper diet is the key to your own health and fitness as well.  One of the behaviors that I have noticed over the years when it comes to fitness is a “start then stop” mentality.   The “start then stop” exerciser will begin a fitness program with gr... »

SlimDoggy Sabbatical

Those of you that follow us regularly may have noticed we haven’t been posting recently. We wanted to give you an update and fill you in on what’s been happening here at SlimDoggy. We have been busy with our dogs, Jack & Coco. Jack is recovering nicely from his toe amputation, but he also had a growth on his neck that had to be removed, so it was back to the vet for that.

Introducing Coco (aka Coco-bean)

Introducing Coco (aka Coco-bean)

The SlimDoggy family has expanded. We have adopted a sweet little chocolate morsel named Coco. Coco was turned into the shelter when her family lost their home in the fires in Kern County, California this summer. She was then taken in as a foster by an LA rescue organization. We first saw her on Petfinder – the same way we found SlimDoggy Jack. She looks so much like our first pup, Sally, it... »

His hind end has been getting weaker and our regular vet suggested some additional strengthening. Jack’s not a huge fan of water, but we knew that the treadmill therapy would b... »

What we eat and how much of it we eat can have a major impact on our overall health and lifespan. The same is true for our dogs. Our decisions on which foods to buy, and how much to serve at each meal, will have a marked impact on the dog’s overall health and wellness.   If you or your pet needs to lose (or gain) weight, the single biggest driver to accomplishing the weight change is creating... »

Goodbye Maggie May

Goodbye Maggie May

This past Saturday morning, we lost our Maggie May. She fought a year-long battle with osteosarcoma and lived life on her own terms right till the end. That morning, she was happily awaiting her breakfast when she collapsed and died within moments.     When you have a dog that is terminally ill as Maggie was, you measure each day into ‘good days’ and ‘bad days’.

  4. […] SlimDoggy said that Phe should try to get mommy to let her take the chair to hu bro’s house with her.  Funny SlimDoggy should say that!  Mom has been saying for months now that she wants a new chair but she has been waiting for Phe to go home before she goes out and buys one.  Something about not wanting us dogs getting in the new chair.  Hu bro is going to inherit that chair and Phe will have it to sleep in forever!
