Welcome to Noseprints On My Heart, a site dedicated to dogs, cats, birds and more in honor of those who have passed through my life leaving in indelible mark on my heart.

The purpose of my site is to share my thoughts, experiences, product reviews, fun facts and photos as they relate to the companion animals with whom we humans typically share our lives.

I hope you’ll enjoy this site and share with me (and other site visitors) your thoughts, questions, and photos and keep coming back. Your suggestions on topics is very welcome!

Animal Fun Facts & Photos

Pages meant for miscellaneous topics and photos.


After 12 years as a professional dog walker and petsitter in Maryland, it was time to make a change. I packed up my bags and headed to Florida. I miss the old life at times, but this is a new and exciting adventure. As homage to that life, and the wonderful dogs who have passed through my life this site was born. I hope to bring information about products and tips on all sorts of topics that would make my dogs proud and make my readers return for more. I welcome ideas to consider for the blog.

DISCLAIMER – No information found on this site is to take the place of a veterinarian’s advice if it in anyway relates to healthcare. Please seek professional veterinary care for any questions you may have about medications, food, treatment etc. for your animals.

I saw a post on Facebook earlier today on this topic. The main idea was that a woman was being investigated for allowing her eight-year-old daughter walk their Maltese around the block (USA Today article)). The article centers around the idea of neglect and while I certainly feel this is an issue worth addressing — not for me here.  My concern is the safety of the child and the dog as it relates to the

Wow, I guess I never thought that I would spent more time writing about how I’m figuring out how to make the website and blog work properly! I hope that this 3rd time (well, way more than 3rd) is the charm and I will be able to focus on the real intended content of this website! Dogs. Cats. Birds. Products. Tips. I thank viewers for their patience!
