We've Moved

We're Moving!

Yellow Lab Riding in Jeep
I know I have been quiet lately and I promise you that I have a very good reason. You see, there is so much that can be done with the Lab Brats blog the way it is. So, I have been thinking long and hard about it and have decided that in order to make the blog grow and become more of a community, it needs to move to it's own home.

Right now the Lab Brats Blog uses Blogger hosted on my own domain but the limitless Wordpress has so much more to offer all the wonderful readers of this blog.

So, I will be moving the blog within the next week. What does that mean to the loyal readers? Well, I won't be updating the blog in the next few days and instead spending my time to move almost 4 years of blog posts over to its new home.

In the meantime, you will not lose out on the life of the Lab Brats - I will do as my forefathers have done and keep a written copy until it can be properly published to our wonderful dog loving community!

Lab smiles!

Happy Anniversary Lab Brats Mommy & Daddy!

Dakota & Cheyenne Laying in Sunspots
Dakota here!

Mommy is taking the day off from blogging today because her and daddy are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary today! Now, I don't really know what a "wedding anniversary" is but they said it is something dogs wouldn't quite get - something about love and the government. If you know our daddy, once you mention the government he can go on talking for hours and become not his normal happy self. (so please don't tell daddy we mentioned the government or it might mean less cookies for a couple of days)

Since mommy left the computer up and running, we thought we would pop on and update her dog loving readers. The only thing we didn't figure is how difficult it would be to type of a Mac keyboard. We are just so used to a PC that our nails keep hitting the wrong keys (please don't tell mommy our nails are too long or she will threaten to cut them again and we DON'T want that!).

Hmm - seems we are wasting precious sunspot time to write this... this is taking way too long... how does mommy do this?! I mean... sunspots are our life! Come on now! I... must... leave... I... just... can't...

Oh heck - I'm outta here! Wait for me Cheyenne!!

Free $10 off Holistic Select Coupon!

Eagle Pack just mailed us a $10.00 off Holistic Select Dog Food coupon for 30 lb. or 33 lb. size.

Since we switched over to Nature's Logic, we don't need the coupon and will mail this coupon to the first person to email us with the correct answer to our trivia question:

Question: How much did Dakota weigh when she was 7 months old?

(Hint: the answer is somewhere in the Lab Brats dog blog)

Good luck!

Travel Tips for Pets

It is no shock for me to say that the economy isn't as good as it used to be. Money is tight and instead of taking vacations, people are starting to take "staycations".

A staycation (or stay-cation, or stacation) is a period of time in which an individual or family stays at home and relaxes at home or takes day trips from their home to area attractions... the thing is, how to do this while taking care of your pets at home?

The AKC has created a wonderful Pet Travel Tips and Hints Brochure to help pet owners travel with their furry companions - even when it is just the next state over. It includes dog water safety, shopping with pets, traveling by plane or car and even lodging tips.

If you plan on traveling this year, it is definitely a handy guide to keep on hand whether you are a seasoned travel or planning your first road trip.
