How Home Buying Habits Have Changed

HOW TO KEEP ME HAPPY AND HEALTHY

by The Rullo Team

No Table Scraps – Those wonderful pet treats are MUCH easier on my tummy than human food!

Pest Prevention – I hate those pesky bugs! Protect me from fleas & ticks all year!

Protect Their Paws – Even sled dogs wear protective booties!

Don’t Forget the Water – If you’re thirsty, I probably am too!

Get an Annual Check-up – regular visits are a great idea even if I look great (which I usually do).

Thanks for taking care of me!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM SPIKE!

by The Rullo Team

 

Time for my annual Christmas gift wishlist; I’m going to concentrate on treats because I haven’t been fed yet today and that’s all I usually think about anyway. Wet Nose, a shop in Geneva Commons (1510 Commons Dr, Geneva), has yummy treats, including ‘Lilly Hearts’- cookies made with carob, peanut butter, coconut, cinnamon & vanilla. (WOW, that sounds better than my mom’s baking but don’t tell her that).  ‘Woof! Waffles’ and the smaller sized ‘My Favorite Things’ Cookies shaped like bones, balls, dog houses and fire hydrants, are cookies flavored with yummy peanut butter. Petco (Geneva, St Charles, North Aurora, South Elgin) has one of my favorite treats, Merrick Holiday Sausage Treats in a gift box!  You can pick up a Sunbeam Gourmet Dog Treat Maker when you attend the Santa Claws Photo Event on Saturday the 14th from 11am to 4pm at PetSmart, 1512 S Randall Rd, Geneva.  Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays! Enjoy your time with your loved ones, I know I will! Love, Spike
