We had tomato plants in one section of the back yard, and we had pumpkins planted in another section. It was our first garden, and we had plans to make use of a big section of the back yard for growing vegetables and fruits. Our first year produced a huge crop of tomatoes. We eat them on sandwiches and in salads. Our dogs even like to eat tomatoes. We have one dog that stands wagging her tail if you are cutting a tomato. However, the pumpkins got destroyed, and we finally figured out we needed deer netting to stop the culprits.
I went out to check on the pumpkins. They were big and orange and just about ready to harvest. Continue reading
This is not really a farm, that is just what we are calling it. When we found the place it had a little herd of goats on it and there was a really old trailer home sitting on it, about ready to fall down. There was a shed too and I fixed that up and then I started building a house. Now we have around six and a half acres of land and a huge budget for natural pet grooming products. That is all that Jane will tolerate and she has started putting together her own little menagerie. We kept a couple of the goats that the previous owner had been using to keep the brush back. Then the first thing Jane did was to make me build her a rabbit hutch and a chicken house. She wants to get a tiny little pond and I am working on that, but we already have some ducks and a couple of geese. I vetoed the ganders however.
When I was a kid the people down the street had geese and they had this one Gander that was absolutely terrorizing anyone who stepped foot on that property. In truth geese and ducks are probably better sentries than most dogs are and they will raise the absolute devil if you startle them at night. A gander is just absolutely as mean as it can be. They like to make themselves look really big by standing on their tip toes and spreading their wings. Then they will charge at you and it is really scary if you are a little kid like I was back when I learned this stuff. At any rate I did not want any of that now, especially since Jane would have a fit if I defended myself against it.
If you have ever had a dog, you know that the saying is true, ‘dogs are man’s best friends.’ They are the most loyal animal and they will follow you wherever you go. It is no wonder that most people absolutely love having dogs. There are some people that are so crazy about dogs that they will actually decorate their home with things that have to do with dogs. They will put up pictures of dogs, they will have dog mugs in their kitchen and they will even take family pictures with their dog.
No matter how much people actually like dogs though, the sad truth is that there are many dogs that do not have owners to take care of them. Continue reading
I would like to buy a new pair of dog clippers in the near future, and I want to make sure that I buy a very heavy duty, set of clippers. I have bought a couple pairs of clippers to use on my dog’s hair before, but they have no really lasted very long. Two of them actually broke while I was using them to trim the hair on my dogs. I need to find something that will last me a long time, and is built to last. I am looking at andis dog clippers right now, and I am trying to figure out if they would be a good product for me to buy.
I guess I want to read some reviews about their clippers before I go any further, just to see what other people have said about the clippers. I am really curious to hear about instances of the product breaking unexpectedly, because that is really what I am looking to avoid when I buy this new pair of clippers. I am going to need to buy a pair of clippers that can cut through really thick and matted hair as well, because of a certain disgusting habit that my dog has.
I am not sure why my dog does this, but every couple of months or so, it will roll in the feces of another dog. It is really nasty when it happens, and the worst part is that the dog already has coarse hair, but when it gets all matted with poop, it becomes an impossible tangle. The only solution I have when my dog gets in such a situation, is just to shave off the affected fur. However, I have broke a pair of clippers before doing that, so I need to find something up to the task.
I am in the process of purchasing a horse for my daughter, because she has wanted one for a very long time, but it has not been feasible to get her one before this point in time. A few years ago, we moved to a property that has a lot more land than our previous house, and with the added land, came the possibility of having a horse. Still, I knew it was going to be expensive, so I had to stay up. Right now, I want to learn about horse tack and how expensive it tends to be.
I have a lot to learn when it comes to horses, and their upkeep. I am worried that this is going to be quite a large undertaking, but my daughter wants a horse so badly, that I am determined to make it happen, for her sake. I really think that it will be good for her too. If she takes a fancy to riding horses, then that will keep her out of the house, and she will not spend as much time on the computer or watching television.
Without putting a whole lot of thought into, I went out and bought a very nice aquarium for my kids the other day, and I now realize that I do not know enough to properly take care of this aquarium. I want to make sure that the fish live a long time, or at least, as long as feasible. I am hoping to learn about how to care for a fish aquarium on the Internet, so that I will know all I need to know to make sure that the aquarium environment stays healthy.
I hope to find a good resource for information on aquarium care and what the requirements are for different types of fish. I think that I have three types of fish in the aquarium at this point in time. I do not remember their names, but I have it written down somewhere.
My dog is experiencing a pretty serious problem at this point in time, and it is something that I would like to be able to resolve quickly. Unfortunately, my dog seems to have come down with a case of diarrhea and it has been pretty disgusting. My dog was inside during the night when the incident started. Since then, she has remained outside in the fenced in back yard. Anyway, I would like to read some information on diarrhea in dogs and what causes it, and that is reason why I am currently on the Internet. This seems like the best place to quickly get some ideas as to what the problem could be with my dog.
I would really like to avoid taking my dog to the vet, because the vet that I usually take my dog to is rather expensive, and do not have a whole lot of extra money to spend at this time of the month. At the same time, I love my dog, and if it is clear that the dog needs to be seen by a vet, then I will not hesitate to do so. Right now, however, I am going to try to monitor its condition and see if I can get it to eat some light food and drink fluids. I wonder if they make the equivalent of a electrolyte solution for dogs in this scenario. If so, then that might be something worth buying, as I am sure it would be cheaper than a trip to the vet. Anyway, I want to learn more about dietary causes of diarrhea, or any potential wildlife that is in the area that could potentially be the culprit. I really have no idea what is causing this problem though, I am just thinking of solutions that seem somewhat plausible so that I can follow up on them.
I am going on a fairly long vacation in the near future, and as such, I am going to have to take my animals to a kennel in order to be taken care of while I am gone. I am really worried about how the dogs will fare with us being away for so long, I hope they do not get too anxious. Anyway, I am pretty sure that it is going to be pretty difficult to transport these animals, and I am looking for pet crates right now, and I want to find the best ones on the market, if I can.
I am probably going to have to buy around 4 of them, and i hope I will be able to fit them all into my car at the same time. I am not going to make two trips to take my animals to the facility where they will be taken care of while my family is out of town on vacation, and I will do what I can to avoid making multiple trips.
When you bring your new puppy home after adopting them, you will probably have a lot of shopping to do to get them feeling comfortable in their new home if you don’t have other pets. Dogs don’t require much but it is nice to think about getting them a few things that will bring them comfort in their new home. which will be a strange place to them initially. Two things you want to make sure you have in the first days of being a dog owner are a dog collar and a leash. Strong Dog Collars and leashes are necessary to make certain that when you take them for a walk they are secure and won’t get away.
Adjusting to a new environment can be difficult depending on the dog and their history.
A dog is a great addition to any family. Not only have studies shown that dogs can help reduce your stress levels and increase the length of your life as a result, having a pet gives you a reason to get up and get active. You can’t simply sit around all day when you have a dog that needs to go on a walk or wants to play. Many people have found wonderful pets by adopting from shelters in their local area. Regardless of whether you just love dogs, or you are already a pet owner, dachshund checks are a neat accessory to have.
The dachshund is a very popular animal among owners, and for good reason. These dogs have a lot of energy and a lot of love to give.
There are many people that love German shepherds. They are some of the most beautiful and loyal dogs. They are also very good watchdogs and many families have decided to get one so that they feel safer in their home and with their children. Some people love their German shepherds so much that they have knickknacks around their homes that are German shepherds, they have German Shepherd calendars, they have german shepherd checks, they may even have clothing that has German shepherds on them.
People that love German shepherds this much are usually very interested in helping foster programs and may even have adopted or rescued a shepherd. It is very unfortunate, but there are some people in this world that do not take care of animals the way that they deserve to be cared for. There are also some people that breed dogs or do not get their dog spayed or neutered and so there is an abundance of dogs and puppies in the world and there are not enough people to take care of them.
