You're Invited - Wags ‘N Waves – Save the Date to Save the Pups! - Sept 16th, 2018

Updated: Nov 20, 2019



Imagine … You're standing at the shoreline of the Runaway Bay Wave Pool at Oceanbreeze Waterpark in Virginia Beach, lathered in sunscreen, surrounded by wagging tails and in the midst of shaking fur showers. And your best pal is next to you. Talk about living the life, right?

You & your dog are invited Sunday, September 16th from 11 AM to 5 PM! ****UPDATE 9/16/18**** This event has been rescheduled for 9/23/18.

By purchasing a ticket to get into this pawrty, a portion will be donated to @dogs_deserve_much_better.

According to their website, Dogs Deserve Better of Smithfield, VA is a nonprofit organization, shelter, and rehabilitation center whose passion is “to provide a better life for abused, neglected and abandoned canines.”

They strive to accomplish this through advocating for humane legislation; promoting spay and neuter; educating communities on animal welfare; and rescuing and rehabilitating distressed canines.

“We take them in, provide shelter, care for all their medical needs, and provide training and socialization to allow them to be the companion dog they have always wanted to be. When they are ready, we place them up for adoption with loving families.”

Pet parents, I believe it is so important to show our support for our local animal rescue organizations such as this. Don’t miss the chance to support this fantastic group at this second annual event Virginia Beach has been looking forward to!

Pups of all ages are welcome and can look forward to Hook’s Lagoon & Runaway Bay Wave Pool.

Humans can look forward to Yappy Hour specials, local food trucks, & live music by Strictly Bizness.

Save $5 by purchasing in advance online or at the park!

Can’t wait to see you there,

Yappy Valentine's Day! 

If you treat your pups like royalty like I do, you might have pup friendly Valentine's treats on your mind right now.


I am a huge fan of treating my dogs. Mostly because they're adorable, perfect, and their eyes demand it.

But I am not a fan of giving them treats with ingredients that I cannot pronounce. If I wouldn't feel comfortable eating it myself, I won't give it to my dogs. Penny is now what you mig...

It happens nearly every morning.

The morning light starts to trickle into my window. I try to keep my eyes shut tight. Just a few more minutes, please... That's all I need...

My alarm goes off.

Only it's my puppy dogs crawling all over my face, giving me kisses and rolling around on top of me. In the midst of craziness, I get showered with dog sneezes. 

"Mom, it's time to get up! Time for our morning walk." 

Or sometime...

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Paw prints everywhere.... " 

I admit, I tend to go a little crazy buying gifts for my furbabes. They often have more stuff under the tree than we do! 


I know I'm not the only one. So while shopping for my pets, I've compiled a list of some of my top favorite pet gifts from interactive puzzle toys to engage your dog's mind to cool pet tech gadgets! There's something for everyone he...

To many Americans, the holidays mean time spent with family & friends, shopping, and food. It's that time of year where you feel so full and happy that you may want to give your pal a doggy feast of their own. 


But before you go too crazy showing your gratitude for your best friend, remember that many foods that we eat as humans can be toxic to our animal friends. 

See below for ways to give your pet their own holiday...

We've seen the bumblebee (Penny's rocked it), hot dog, superman, batman costumes. They're all great & absolutely adorable. 

But I wanted to see the most unique ones!

So I scoured the internet for the BEST pet costume ideas for Halloween (or should I say Howloweeen) 2018.

I'll be the first to admit it. 

I'm obsessed with my dogs. My heart feels full just because they exist in my life.

Do you ever just look over at your dogs and think, how did I get so lucky to have them in my life?

I do. All.the.time. 

How can you not? Dogs are basically life's way of making up for every crappy day ever. I mean, they love you unconditionally, more than themselves, in a way that no one else can. 

I don't know where I...

Please talk to your veterinarian about whether your pets' medication is the appropriate one for them.

I've been receiving calls & messages from concerned pet parents and those in Zone A who need to evacuate but are not sure what to do with their pets so I thought I would answer some questions here. 

As of the time of this writing 9/12/18 at 2pm, it looks as though Virginia Beach is out of the direct path of Hurricane Florence, which is wonderful news for us ... Not so much for our neighbors in the south, unfortunately....
