Have you been thinking about adopting a puppy? Like humans, puppies rely on certain things to survive, like love, food and shelter. Also, much like humans, puppies tend to have a personality of their own.
While breed and appearance are factors to consider when it comes to making the decision to adopt a puppy, you must also consider the “compatibility” factor. Here’s a couple points we want to share with our friends who are considering adopting a puppy in Fort Worth:
Energy — Puppies can be full of energy, but are you? Are you prepared for the peppy puppy who demands a midnight snack or an early morning stroll? When it comes to choosing a breed, you want to take energy levels into consideration. Different breeds are commonly known to display certain traits when it comes to behaviors. Reading “Adopt a Dog with the Right Energy” may help guide you along the process of understanding a dog’s energy level as you’re considering your options.
Size — Don’t mistake the size of the dog for the level of care it requires. Furthermore, consider factors like space, travel, appetite and budget.

Follow these tips whenever you’re thinking of hosting a food and wine pairing.
Your apartment in Fort Worth is a great place for hosting a dinner party for your friends. Here is a basic guide to pairing wine with food to help in your menu planning.
One important tip when planning a food and wine pairing is to match the flavor of the wine with the flavor of the food that you are serving. For instance, Pinot Noir has a cranberry or cherry flavor. Since cranberries and cherries are often served with turkey or duck, you can serve this wine with turkey and duck dishes.
Sour and salty food will suppress the bitterness in wine, so it is fine to serve a bitter wine with these types of food. Acidic, salty or fatty foods suppress astringency, the dry, puckering sensation that can accompany the taste of a red wine. So it is fine to serve a tough red with these foods.
Sweet wines tend to go well with salty foods. Finally, bitter wines should not be served with bitter foods. There is much more to pairing wine, but these basic principles are a good place to start.
So, don’t shy away from throwing that food and wine pairing. Your friends will love an evening with you at Trinity Bluff.
