I've discovered in shell salted peanuts, and I'm loving them. I had never actually had them before, but we had them one night at my in-laws so I bought a bog. Now, Tundra ADORES peanuts and peanut butter and peanut flavored anything. So I tossed him a few (shelled) peanuts. They bounced off his face, … Continue reading Peanuts
For the first time this year, our neighborhood has been setting off fireworks, and this has been going off for most of two weeks. Tundra hates them. He whines and paces and tips over every water dish in the house. Repeatedly. Then he whines because he's thirsty, and if you fill the dish again he'll … Continue reading The Floof Hates Fireworks
We went to a relative's high school graduation party, and it seems like there were parties EVERYWHERE. Which makes me a bit nostalgic for the summer after High School Graduation where I was finally DONE with Day Care (I mean High School) and eagerly looking forward to college. I had no real responsibilities, and everything … Continue reading Just a Little Bit of Nostalgia
I got out of my car recently, and about four bunnies jumped out of my garden and darted into the neighbor's debris from cutting down their tree. One of them ran to the end of the garage and turned the corner... but I could totally see its butt hanging out there. So I ran/stomped over … Continue reading Bunnies, You Are Not Subtle
This is just a post showing the crate we have for Tundra and the set up. I've had people ask on a couple Facebook conversations, and I'd like to have a post I can send them to. *smile* The first photo is a size/location comparison. He can turn around easily in the crate and often … Continue reading Tundra’s Crate Since It Has Come Up Several Times
Up until now, the dog food brand we've been giving our puppers had avoided any of the hugely public lawsuits or failed testing. But... that's no longer true. There's a lawsuit regarding ridiculously high levels of lead in that dog food, and we're worried. There just isn't very much regulation in the dog food industry, … Continue reading Making Our Own Dog Food?
I SO wish I had caught photos of this. We had a big squirrel feeding on the bird seeds on our rail, and it was bright and sunny outside, so the house was dim to him. My husband walked up near the window to watch him. He didn't notice. So my husband unlocked the door. … Continue reading Squirrels Are Skittish Creatures
After our snow day on Monday last week, we had a cold snap. And I mean COLD snap. Our offices were closed, and I got to take Wednesday and Thursday off as we all prepared for ridiculous temperatures. On Wednesday, it got down to -27, not counting wind chill. We drove over to my parents' … Continue reading Wisconsin, You’re Drunk
So the grow light set up in the basement looked very nice, but the light was so bright that it looked like we were either summoning aliens with our landing lights or have the largest grow operation East of the Mississippi. Neither of these are ideal. So, I moved it upstairs. Oddly enough, it stands … Continue reading Moved the Grow Light Upstairs So The Neighbors Don’t Think We’re Growing Pot
We follow an Alaskan Malamute rescue, IAMRA, and we try to support them. My parents look there first when they're looking for a new dog, and they've been wonderful. I follow them in their private Facebook Group for prior adopters, and they put a call out for transport help this week. An elderly, blind and deaf, … Continue reading Floofer Transport!
