Looking For a Vet in Orange County?

We took Lightning to Animal Hospital of Irvine his whole life — 13 years. We boarded him there too when we went out of town. They took excellent care of him. How do I know that? Because years ago we used to board him at PetSmart and it was always a struggle. He didn’t want us to leave him there.… Read more →

Hi everybody! It’s me, Lightning! Starbucks gave me a pup cup today in a mini-Frappucino cup.

My Dog Is a Genius

This needs a little setup . . .

Merry Christmas, Starbucks

Hi everybody! It’s me, Lightning! I heard that some people don’t like the Starbucks Christmas cups this year. People are silly. My favorite Starbucks Christmas cup was the one with a dog on a sled but the contents of the cup, that’s the main thing. I don’t even mind that most of the time my pup cups have someone else’s… Read more →
