Our sweet Rottweiler Chief was already 7 years old when we adopted him. The average life span of a Rottweiler is?8-10 years, but I my previous Rottweiler Naya lived past 13. Chief?was in good health and very active when he came to us, and we have tried?to keep him healthy by keeping him active. We hope that Chief has a nice long life here on the farm. Pets are no different than humans, physical fitness improves?over all health. Our Chief-y dog is about to turn 9 years oldaccent pillow case baby burlap floor, and he still occasionally acts like a feisty puppy; I’;m sharing a few tips on how to help keep an aging pet active and healthy including my thoughts on pet nutrition.

My first piece of advice is to talk to your veterinarian. I would make sure that you’;re pet is sound enough to participate in certain activities and see what your vet advises. Hip and elbow dysplasia, and knee problems might make certain activities painful. Luckily our Chief is sound, loves to swim, and we have a pond on the farm. We frequently take him to the pond to swim and retrieve. Swimming is much easier on his aging joints than playing fetch. It’;s also good to take your pet on regular walks to help ensure they aren’;t too sedentary which can contribute to pet obesity, and equally tough on aging bones and joints.

Nutrition is very important to your pet’;s overall health. It’;s important to select a food that easily digestible and includes high quality ingredients. Pinnacle? Dog Food uses limited, quality ingredients and it’;s manufactured in the United States. All Pinnacle Dog Food formulas are grain free to help make the food more digestible. They use quality ingredients such as quinoa, sweet potato, pumpkin, kelp, and cottage cheese. Pinnacle Dog Food has antioxidants which help support a healthy immune system, and fiber to encourage digestion.

You can read more about Pinnacle Dog Food on their website, and you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Take your pet in for regular check-ups at the veterinarian. They have routine health screenings for geriatric pets that can help diagnose conditions. Earlier diagnosis can lead to earlier treatment, and help to prolong the life of your pet and improve the overall quality of their life.

We recently attended the inaugural Southern Style Now Festival in New Orleans, and the absolute highlight was Traditional Home magazine’s showhouse, a Queen Anne Victorian mansion located in the Uptown District on St. Charles Avenue. Aptly described by Curbed New Orleans as a “veritable funhouse for design lovers,” the showhouse is a spectacular homage to the region’s rich and colorful cultural traditions.

The Phantom 4 is a bit of a beast. It only weighs three pounds, but it’s an awkward three pounds — two large landing struts and an awkward balance make it a bit weird to carry, and worry about damaging the propellers on a $1,200 drone meant I didn’t want to stuff it into a backpack (and I’d need a pretty large backpack to stuff it into, regardless). Most enthusiasts just take off the props on their quads while in transport, but I didn’t want the hassle.

This is one of my favorite projects so far. I know, I know – I keep promising not all my projects will be pump cases, and they won’t be. This was just an easy project and I’m so happy with how it turned out! These shorts have a cuff with pockets for my pump. I made a pair to wear as pj’s (a little late for 4th of the July, which was my original intent). They’re surprisingly comfortable, and the extra pocket has proven to be SUPER useful for things like a little extra cash/cards/anything small that you need a pocket for.
