A Forever Home For Enzo

Enzo is going home! Not like on transport to a rescue group to find a home, like HOME!!! The story is really proof that in the end, everything works out the way it’s supposed to be.


Enzo will be going to live in Ridgeland, SC with a wonderful friend of my mom’s. It’s about 20 minutes away from Hilton Head Island, where I grew up (hint, hint: I’ll get to see him whenever I go home!).

Last Weeks With Enzo

Our sweet foster boy Enzo is one step closer to home. In a few weeks, he will depart on transport to a rescue organization in Iowa. Originally we were not going to send him on another transport but our partners in Iowa heard the whole story (here, if you missed it) and are confident they can find him a great home in no time. They adore Chows and Enzo’s story, photos and videos have stolen their hearts.

Last weekend, Enzo graduated from Basic Obedience Class. The class is designed off the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen curriculum so he’ll be ready to start CGC training or advanced training with his new family. He’s matured into a wonderfully trained pup and we’re certain we’re going to have a hard time letting go.

Toys for Dogs Who Chew: Review

If your house is at all like ours then severed rope toys, torn up tennis balls and insane amounts of stuffing on the living room rug are a regular occurrence. Buying tough toys “for aggressive chewers” sounds like a good idea until your dog rips it apart at the seams in less time than it took you to pull the price tag off. We’ve been there many times but fortunately, we’ve found some pretty good toys along the way. Sure, they may not be as fun or cute as others, but they’ll last and your dogs will love them.

Kong Extreme– These rubber toys are even stronger than the original Kongs but are also stuffable and fun to chew. Available in 5 sizes, Kongs are truly the best solution for habitual chewers. Smaller dogs may not like the Extreme version because the rubber is harder to chew. All Kongs are extra durable, from Puppy to Classic, but the Kong Extreme is key for those crazy chewers in your house.

Cheers to 2013!

happy new year, dogs

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy New Year!! Thank you all for your supportive words about our foster boy Enzo who made a reappearance last month at our house. (Read here if you missed the post.) He’s doing exceptionally well and as the days go by, I’m falling more and more in love with him. He’s become an excellent walker and loves getting his furry coat brushed. Another favorite? Pressing his entire body into you when you pet him. He’s had no obedience issues at all and I find myself scratching my head to explain the earlier blunder. Hopefully, Enzo will find his perfect forever home soon– he has nothing but love– and a ton of dog hair to give 🙂

It Matters to Me

Author Unknown

As I walked along the seashore
This young boy greeted me.
He was tossing stranded starfish
Back to the deep blue sea.
I said “Tell me why you bother,
Why you waste your time this way.
There’s a million stranded starfish
Does it matter, anyway?”
