Hi, folks, and welcome back to Dog with a Blog. We sure had a white Christmas, or close enough, which can be very tiring and stressful for dogs who do not enjoy cold weather or snow. Their paws can feel agitated from the salt, and the temperatures are nasty. It’s not great for us out there eith...

As first semester of our senior year comes to a close, we could not be more proud of our staff’s accomplishments. It’s kind of scary that we’ve now finished our fourth issue — leaving us with only four to go. It may sound cliche, but time has honestly flown by. It’s been a fun year, even though it...

For this week’s blog, we decided to change things up a bit. While we do like grabbing a bite to eat with each other, there is a lot more to Kansas City than local food places. So, we went to Made in KC: a clothing company that specializes in Kansas City themed apparel. We instantly knew that we w...

I’m sure most of you, if not all, have heard of this classic Disney movie. This movie was a staple to my childhood because I watched this movie so much and absolutely loved it. “Sky High” is a movie about Will, a freshman, with  parents who are modern day superheroes. He and one of his frien...

In the spirit of winter quickly approaching, this week’s blog is centered around our pick for top ten shows to watch on Netflix. In our opinion, cold weather is the perfect excuse to bundle under a pile of blankets and binge watch a season or two of a show. If you're the type of person who loves th...
