Did you know Max is really cat friendly? We joke that he speaks cat better than dog.

His new foster to adopt cat sibling Memphis is slowly warming up to him, he has started perching himself near Max. Who of course wishes he would get over it so they can play, cuddle and so he can clean him.

Today on the one month anniversary of rescuing our sweet senior gal Duchess, we got hit with some devastating news...she has cancer.

Our vet called us with the test results from yesterday, it looks like she has a mass on her spleen and it's potentially bleeding. They are about 90% sure it's hemangiosarcoma, the only way to know for sure with this type of cancer is to surgically remove the...

Way to go Sacramento!! They just passed a law that mandates pet stores to get their pets from shelters to adopt them out, rather than sell them from backyard breeders and puppy mills.

California, Florida and New Jersey are the states that have the most cities already abiding by this law.

We love you Duchess, we want you to feel better sweetheart

Duchess started to not feel good the last few days, we took her to Newport Mesa Animal Hospital today and ran bloodwork and had X-rays done. We are waiting on the results but the vet thinks she could be anemic and the cause could be splenic or liver cancer. We've scheduled an ultrasound to be done on Monday.

Our poor dogs can't...

The results of this social experiment didn't shock us. We do think he was a little more tense and always saying 'come on' when walking his Pittie vs the Australian shepherd. We are proud, confident Pittie owners when out walking our kiddos.

But we want to know your thoughts and experiences, comment and tell us!

How cute is his Pittie btw
