Puppy Dog Pals Barks Up the Right Tree for Young Animal Lovers

#PuppyDogPalsEvent Puppy Dog Pals

There are two types of people in this world: Dog People and Cat People. I am most definitely one of the former, which is why a show called Puppy Dog Pals is way more appealing to me than if it were called Furry Feline Friends or something.

We use that Puffin …

The Stink Bug War of 2014 Has Turned In Our Favor

Stink Bug Eater

Last fall, I told you guys about our little problem with Stink Bugs. The little stinkers (no pun intended) were popping up all over the place and just grossing us out. Then the winter came and they went into hiding. Fast forward to spring and the reunion began, this time in even greater numbers. We were seeing about 5 or 6 Stink Bugs a day easy. Good thing they’re super slow once they land so …
