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!
We got Tundra's teeth cleaned, and they gave us a goo to put on weekly that would help since he won't let us brush his teeth. They said this would be easier than brushing his teeth. ... No, no it wasn't. No photos were taken since it took ALL of our hands. It needs like … Continue reading Tundra Doesn’t Like Teeth Goo
This week we brought Tundra in to have his teeth cleaned. We did this with him in 2016 or so, but at his last check up the vets were concerned about his teeth again. So we saved up (it took a few months!), set up an appointment, and brought him in this last week. I … Continue reading Poor Tundra Got His Teeth Cleaned
Crushing Disappointment! I left work early on Halloween so that I could carve our pumpkin with my husband and... it was rotten. *sniffle* So that was not an option. But I did dress up a bit, and my husband wore the cute wolf ears we got at the Great Wolf Lodge. My first two attempts … Continue reading Halloween: We Hand Out Candy But Tundra Is the Real Attraction
We drove to the apple orchards for our yearly visit! We intend to go again with one of my husband's friends, but I simply COULD NOT WAIT any longer. I brought my camera but the batteries were no good, so no photos of the trip itself, just what we picked up. We drove through some … Continue reading Our Yearly Visit to the Apple Orchards
Sunday morning, we got a call from my parents - would my husband be available to drive with my dad and their dog Mariah down to Chicago to pick up a new dog from a rescue? Of course he said yes. So I puttered around the house while the drove down and went to bed … Continue reading My Parents’ New Dog or My Husband’s Biblical Adventure
