We have a nice little guest post today by our Pet Supply buyer. Seems she and another employee were taking a break from their hard work and helped out a couple lucky lost puppies.
With the new year always comes resolutions. They come in as many shapes and sizes as the people who make them. They also seem to last for various periods of time and have a thread of seriousness that is usually unraveling to non-existence by ground hog day.
We want the Christmas holiday season to be a wonderful time for all members of our family, including the four-legged ones. Unfortunately, the holiday seasons brings a lot of potential dangers for cats (and dogs too) that could really upset your festivities.
This is a good little story about what to expect when moving Ducks or Geese from hand raising to pond life. Sounds like there might be a "training period".
Today's guest post is from LeeAnn Brown one of our resident poultry lovers. She writes from experience about winterizing your chicken house or coop. I think you will enjoy her suggestions.
I am excited to post this article from Mary Humphrey talking about how she started Annie's Goat Hill.
Does your horse live in a pasture and you don't have the opportunity to spray him down with fly spray every day? Have ticks been a continual problem on your horse since February this year? I have the perfect solution that will put your mind at ease and help keep those pests away from your equine partner even when you are not there.
Hank is a bit of a curious dog. He is 8 years old and his eyesight might not be the best anymore. One evening not too long ago I let him outside right before bedtime to do his "chores". I continued cleaning up the kitchen waiting for him to finish. He barked a couple times at the front door like he normally does when he's ready to come in. He came charging in the door and headed to his nice big dog bed on the floor at the foot of our bed.
While tromping through the woods in mid-Missouri this early spring I have already experienced the presence of the dreaded Tick. How could they be out on the prowl this early in the year?
I was none too thrilled when my little Boston Terrier Max clearly had one attached on his neck. Luckily I saw it easily on his white hair. I was able to pull it off without a problem since it had not had much of a chance to embed a long way into the skin. I was quick to apply his next application of Frontline before our next trip to the woods where he could do his favorite activity-hunt for squirrels.
