Happy Thanksgiving

It’s been a year since my first blog posting. We are thankful of all the new friends we met through this space. Enjoy the Holidays!




Black and White Sunday- snow is back

Not only our Sundays, but every day is black and white now that the snow is back.
This is a blog hop hosted by Dachshund Nola, YDWWYW and My life in blog years.

Product Review: Is Pet Designer Petwear

I recently posted a picture of Bailey wearing a red coat. We got so many responses asking about the coat. The dog coats were a gift from my sister, but I was able to do some research and here are all the details.

The company that makes the coats is named Is Pet Designer Petwear. The jacket is 100% polyester and it’s a light, super soft, sleeveless jacket.


It’s not tailored made for dachshunds, but the XL happens to fit perfectly to Bailey.



The jacket fits TeKeela lengthwise but it’s a bit big around her chest (like most of the regular dog sweaters). It might work a bit better with a sweater underneath. So I really recommend you double check the size chart if you are considering it for a dachshund.


For us, living in Alaska, these are light winter/fall jackets. This is because the Snowieners are short and the snap buttons closure in the front might allow water/snow in, causing them to get cold.

Overall, we love the coats, they are stylish and colorful.

We were not paid for this review. This is entirely my point of view.

Wordless Wednesday- just another day

Mischief Monday-On or off-leashed?

TeKeela’s gentle reminder that dogs should be leashed at all times.

Hiking Chester Creek Trail

This week we decided to try a new trail. Chester Creek Trail is a 4 mile paved trail in town.

This trail is shared by pedestrians and bikes, but soon will become a cross country ski trail as well. The trail ends at Goose Lake.

Once we head back to the car, we un-leashed the Snowieners in a green open area. We practiced their recall skills and had a blast.


Halloween wrap-up


This year the Snowieners barked non-stop to all the treat or trickers who dared to approach our block.

They also participated in a local costume contest. A Happy Dog Day Camp posted the pictures of the 24th contestants and the dog with more ‘likes’ in their picture within 24 hrs. would win. At first, the Snowieners were a bit behind, but thanks to your votes, the last hour was nerve wrecking. So much, that another dog got declared winner but after reviewing the votes, a Snowiener was named champion as well.
Bailey, dressed as the cowardly lion got over 90 likes. Thank you for all your support. Every single vote was crucial and we are overwhelmed with gratitude. We’ll work harder on next years costume and see if we can win a third time!

Smile, It’s Friday
