It's That Time Again (No, I Don't Mean Christmas)
I haven’t blogged much here. But then again, we all know I’m
a bad blogger. But now I’m getting ready to move again, and it’s time to think
about my (short) time here in Maryland. For starters, I’ve been spending every Monday with my BFF,
Misty. She works f...

Arrivederci, Oklahoma
Last morning in Oklahoma. I reached a point where there wasn't anything else I could get done right now. Still have time before I head over to J's graduation ceremony, so I'm playing around online (internet gets turned off today). So, what did I like about ...

Working On My Self
I've followed the first 2 weeks with Sasha , and after a binge-induced weight gain of 2 pounds at the very beginning, I got down to 159 for the end. So while I put those 2 pounds on, I managed to take them and another pound off. I also lost an inch or so on...

Nose To The Grindstone (Or, Thoughts While Drinking A Beer)
I am working so much right now. Pretty much every day. My
one day I have guaranteed off is spent catching up on errands and cleaning
house. I see my friends off doing adventures and exploring and I feel
jealous.  But then I think of how guilty I often feel ...

Pulire - To Clean (Or, OMG! A Post From Italy!)
A long time ago, in a land far, far away….. I created a cleaning
schedule . Seriously. Me. I made a little monthly calendar and had household
chores for me to do each weekday. I put that little calendar in a plastic sheet
protector on my fridge and marked o...

Sometimes I Open My Mouth And My Dad Comes Out (Or, Daddy's Girl)
Girls are supposed to grow up and become their mothers,
right? Not me. I’m becoming my dad. I play with kids and animals the way he does. I make up my
own words like he does. I find myself using nicknames for my nieces and nephews
that he used to use with m...

Thoughts On Motherhood (Or, A Serious Post)
I have to get something off my chest, and this won’t sit well
with quite a few of my acquaintances and even some friends. However, it’s
something I’ve thought long and hard about, and I think some of you will agree. I am not a mom.   Having pets does not ma...

Introduction
I'm a 30 something Army wife that is obsessed with bras, running, and Dr. Who. Well, and my pets. I have a fondness for researching things online, which bleeds over into all I do. I worked for a while as a bra fitter and have been researching them for the past 7 or so years. Ask me a question about bras and you get a novel.

I love this place. I checked it out before boarding my dog there, and ended up standing around chatting with the owner for an hour. My dog always has a great time staying here, and they treat him well. He follows the lady back to the kennels with no problem, which makes it easier for me to leave my baby there. He's always so happy and excited when I pick him up. And the price is great. When we left him there last year over Christmas (2011) they had stockings full of dog treats for only $5 and gave our pup a treat at least once a day. Even sent what was left home with us. The owners know my pup by name now, even though we only board him a few times a year.

We left our dog here for the weekend. I did not realize I had to pay extra for him to have time outside of his kennel, and when I called to book his stay, they mention absolutely nothing about it, so my super social guy was stuck in his kennel all weekend. He very obviously did not want to go back with the girl who took him. Of course he was happy to see us when we picked him up, but it's just not the same happy as where we board him now, more like he was relieved that we came back for him.

I took my dog here twice. The first time was OK, nothing amazing, but the second time his cut was very choppy and uneven and I found a spot on his chest where the clippers had nicked him. They didn't tell me about that. I know my dog doesn't sit still well, but no other groomer (including my untrained self) have ever cut him. Prices were good compared other local groomers, but my pup seemed a little scared when I picked him up.

Holy Hell! They notified us 24 hours before we get there that we've been moved to another hotel. I had to ask before they said WHY we'd been moved (plumbing issues). When I asked for a discount for being moved so far from our ideal location, they didn't respond. It took multiple phone calls and my husband yelling at the clerk over the phone to get them to say simply cancel our reservation. I would not recommend them at all. Customer service is a 0.

My dog got his very first haircut here. They handled him well and did a good job helping me pick a length of cut for him. He's a mutt, so we have no breed to base it on. It didn't take long, and I liked that I could see him through the windows. Even got a couple pictures of his first grooming. The only reason I haven't been back is the price. I can get him groomed at a local shop now that he's full grown for almost half the price I got charged here when he was just a pup (under 1 year).

I tried a few different places before a friend recommended Paw Prints. I was glad that they asked to see his medical records, and the store was clean and open, you can see what's going on. The dogs are kept in little "play pens" instead of kennels. I would drop my boy off and pick him up a few hours later. Price was good compared to other local groomers, and much better than PetSmart. No complaints about the cut, he was always happy when I picked him up, and the groomers gave me report of his behavior (always good!). I only stopped going when I bought my own clippers and started grooming him myself to save money, but will still take him in once or twice a year for a good groom. He won't let me trim his face yet.

I went to Harwood at the recommendation of another military spouse. The vet clinic on post didn't seem to care about the lump on my cat's gum, but Dr. Harwood took one look and said it had to go. She handled my cat so well that I took my dog there after adopting him. Even took my friend's dog there when they were visiting and she was very practical about treating her, enough to let her get home to her regular vet for follow-ups. Prices are similar to what I paid elsewhere and what my friend pays in Denver. I'm willing to pay a little more for someone who knows what they are doing and takes good care of my pets.
