Wow! Can you believe it is the end of October, already!? I sure can't believe that the year is almost over, but I'm glad the weather is getting crisper and the pumpkin spice is everywhere.

Keto Dog Food

Our dog Murphy has been diagnosed with lymphoma. He has undergone a couple weeks of chemotherapy with some substantial results.

Most everyone knows the vinegar-based Eastern NC BBQ sauce that goes on pulled pork, but we also have a chicken sauce.
