Forgive me for being gross, but our neighbor's dog pooped out a bunch of the little Fischer-Price guys. :shock: I second Barb on what to watch for.

reasons to celebrate!

We had "Report Mom to Amnesty International Day," a/k/a the annual vet visit on Monday. Orion is back up to his healthy weight of 40.6 pounds with good muscle tone, no progression on his heart murmur, negative heartworm test, and his blood titer indicated that he's all good to go in skipping everyth...

8) "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" had a possible solution last season. They built a home for a family that did rescue work. In the part of the house dedicated to the dogs, they installed toilets for them to drink from. 8)

Keep the doors to kitchen and bathroom cabinets open--that will allow the warm air to circulate. If you have any odd pipes running through closets, keep them open, too. If it gets down below 5F, that's when I turn my water on--just a trickle. You sound as if you've done everything else you could. 8)

I was wondering where the Poop Anonymous/Poop-Anon meeting was. 8) With Orion, I have tried Tabasco, pumpkin, pineapple, Deter and its cousins, banging the poop scoop on the picnic table and shreiking hysterically. The best way--the only way--for us is to keep Orion on his leash or tie out line, kee...

How Angels Came to Top Christmas Trees

Once upon a Christmas eve, Santa was having a bad day. The elves were behind in making and wrapping the gifts. Mrs. Claus had burned some cookies and had to start all over again with the baking, causing a delay. On top of that, the reindeer were threatening to go on strike. In the middle of all this...

Hallalulia!! :D :D :D I know that finding Orion an acupressure therapist made a world of difference for him. She showed me how to work his points and gave some suggestions on what to feed him. Now he's back to having the zoomies a couple of times a week. I only have to give him the Deramaxx on an as...

Of course we are! It's a little tricky--we celebrate Orion's birthday on 12/21, our nearest best guess about his birthday. We're trying to talk Daddy into a little brother this year. daddy is really stressing from his job, but that's another story. Orion will likely get some Buddy Biscuits and we're...
