Yep, we didn't light the menorah, didn't give out presents, didn't play a ROUSING game of Driedel. As far as Mazzy and Harlow are concerned, the first day of Hanukah is today. And... Continue »

by: Carol Bryant We are called BlogPaws, so for it's no small secret we love pets, more than a little.

BlogPaws is, in fact, designed for those who embrace pets as more than that: Pets are part of the family. BlogPaws, the... Continue »
