The Fairy Dog Mom's Bedtime Stories

Fun with Dog Photos and Videos-At Your Service!

by Joanne Papini on 09/08/14

If you or your business have a need for a dog-themed YouTube...doggy models and actors...Let Joanne the Fairy Dog Mother know!
Joanne is a talented pho-dographer and scriptwriter!
Also, the Pic Collage app and Facebook are now a Fairy Dog Mother Inn staple! One of our favorite things to do with the dogs is capture them doing the silly things they do and sharing them with you.
We can also text you or email you photos with extras like: cute little captions, animated props and costumes and more!

Elizabeth, the Fairy Dog Step-Mom!

by Joanne Papini on 10/17/13

My name is Elizabeth, and I am one of the Fairy Dog Mother Inn Step-Moms!  For those of you who have seen the Dalmatian in the photos on our Facebook Page, that is my little boy Devon.

Devon is a 2 year old Dalmatian.  His full  name is Proctor's Lord Devon Valentine, and he answers to many nicknames:  Devie Wevie, Wevers, Mr. Soggerton, Spottysaurus Rex, Sir Hops A Lot, Spots, Mr. Valentine, Barkasaurus, and many more!  Devon is a titled trick dog.  He has his Novice and Intermediate Trick Dog titles, and he is working on his Advanced Trick Dog title now.  His favorite tricks are the jumping tricks like Hoop Jump Over My Back.  My favorite trick is his most useful trick - Wipe Your Paws!!!

When I am not working at the Inn, I run a pet treat bakery called 3 of Hearts Pet Bakery.  I'm also a dog trick trainer and work on training with Devon several times a week.  I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, and spending as much time with Devon as I can!

Mindful Mutts

Dogs have it sooo good! If I could reincarnate it would be as one of my dog guests. But for today, for this moment I will just practice what dogs teach me every single day....

  • Sit   (be still)
  • Stay  (don't run from your feelings)
  • Leave It  (walk away from the cookies)
  • Play (be curious!)

That's all we need to know!   (tee shirts coming soon!)

I am becoming a DOG!

by Joanne Papini on 06/14/11

I've known for awhile that my house smells like dog, that my car does and that I probably do too. The hair, the dirt, the slobber...everything you'd expect from someone who lives with lotsa dogs. But I sank to a new 'low' recently. As the dogs were taking their morning pee today I came scarrrrrry close to just lifting my robe, squatting, and peeing in the grass along with them.  Very close! It felt like the natural thing to do---woof!

Today I Cried

by Joanne Papini on 04/27/11

Two of my little guests are notorious for stepping in water bowls, counter surfing and generally "talking" a lot --especially at mealtime. So when I bid farewell to two of the cutest chocolate labs ever this morning I broke down and cried. They won't be coming back because they are moving out of state. You would have thought they were my own or that'd I'd known them for a decade, but no. I guess that's why I'm a Fairy Dog Mom....and a cry baby!
