It's warm out! What are you waiting for? Grab my leash and let's take a walk. It is one of our favorite things to do besides eating and sleeping. Nothing renews our spirits like the smell of Spring and walking next to our "two-legged" friends. 

There are just a couple of things us "four-legged" friends want to remind you. First and foremost, make sure our collar, or actually a harness is best, and leash are securely fastened to us. Sometimes we forget that we are "walking" and not chasing a rabbit so keep us safe by always doing this before we head outdoors. Secondly, do not forget a "DOGGY BAG" in case we have the "urge". Some neighbors do not have a sense of humor and could get very mad at you. Last, but not least, make sure you find an area where we can safely run free and away from danger. Unlike humans, we experience the world through our sense of smell. 

With that said, let's go!

What is one of the very worst things about Spring? No, it's not mud it's DIRTY WINDOWS! Don't try to look out of windows that distort what we've all been waiting Rochester Window Cleaners and get a clear view of the bright sunshine and the budding trees! 


It's time to call 
Call Rochester Window Cleaning to get on their schedule whether you want them to come once or once a month.

Decided to touch up the windows yourself? You'll regret it once you start! 
But, if you insist... here are some window cleaning tips for you. 
Wash the windows with the following solution (2 cups of water, 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of dish soap). For the outside of the window, use a back and forth drying method. For the inside of the window, use an up and down drying method. If you see streaks, you'll be able to tell which side of the glass they're on, based on the direction of the streak.
