Nice Pet Scratch photos

A few nice Pet Scratch images I found:

This cat actually uses the scratching post as designed. There must be something wrong with him! We’ve been leaving treats on the top to entice him up there, which must be helping.

I wanted to take some photos today, but did not get a chance to go where I wanted to go. So instead, I am posting a photo of my cats (max and Miss Kitty) enjoying their scratching post/play center.

Why Do Dogs Dig Holes?

Certain breeds of dogs like Terriers and Dachshunds were bred specifically for their ability to dig out wild animals such as badgers, foxes, and otters. Their digging instinct gives these breeds a strong desire to dig holes, no matter whether it’s your yard or the neighbors flower bed.

Dogs dig for a variety of reasons other than instinct. Some dogs will dig holes simply because they’re bored. If a dog is left out alone in the yard for any length of time, it may decide to dig holes just for something to do. If you’re going to leave your dog unattended in the yard for a lengthy time, be sure there are chew toys or other playthings to keep it busy and take its mind off digging holes.

Some dogs dig holes under fences because it’s a means of escape. Your dog may want to get out of a fenced yard because it knows there are more interesting things to do on the other side of the fence.

If a female dog has not been spayed, or a male dog not neutered, the urge to mate with another dog can be so strong that a dog will dig as many holes under a fence as needed until it can escape the yard and achieve its goal.

One shouldn’t forget that dogs are inveterate savers. They will bury bones or treats to save for what we would refer to as “a rainy day”, figuring that if no food is available they’ll always have the bones they’ve buried when they need them.

The secret to stopping a dog from digging holes where it’s not supposed to, is to first understand the cause for the behavior, then manipulate the dog into a more acceptable behavior.

There are some things you can do to prevent your dog from digging holes:

Give your dog a place where it’s allowed to dig, and then using praise and treats, train it to dig only in the spot you’ve chosen and nowhere else. If there’s a place with loose dirt around your yard it will make it easier for the dog to dig without exerting a huge amount of energy.

Stop your dog from digging in any place you feel is inappropriate. If verbal commands or dog treats do not stop the dog from digging holes in unacceptable places, try putting a small amount of pepper or diluted ammonia on the inappropriate area you want to be “off-limits.” There are also commercial products you can use that have cute names like “Keep Off”, “No-Dig”, or “Get Off My Garden”. These products create a scent that is disgusting to a dog and interferes with its sense of smell.

If you suspect that boredom is triggering the digging, give your dog more enjoyable forms of exercise to do like playing fetch or going on a long walk. This will help release some of the dog’s excess energy and make it forget that there are holes to dig.

When a dog is digging holes, remember it’s just a natural part of its inbred instincts and you can change the unwanted behavior at any time by being consistent and firm in your training.

Rosemary Cottage by Colleen Coble ~ Book Review

Rosemary Cottage Book #2 of The Hope Beach Series


By Colleen Coble
Published by Thomas Nelson

Average Blogger Rating: 4.63 Stars

Book Description

Amy came to Rosemary Cottage to grieve, to heal, maybe even find love. But there’s a deadly undertow of secrets around Hope Island . . .
The charming Rosemary Cottage on the beach offers Amy Lange respite she needs to mourn her brother, Ben. She’s even thinking of moving her midwife practice to the Outer Banks community. It’s always been a refuge for her and her family. She also wants to investigate Ben’s disappearance at sea. Everyone blames a surfing accident, but Amy has reason to wonder.
Coast Guard officer Curtis Ireland has lost a sibling too. His sister, Gina, was run down by a boat, leaving him to raise her infant daughter. If anyone knew who little Raine’s father was, Curtis could lose his beloved niece. Yet he can’t help being drawn to Hope Beach’s new midwife, Amy. He even agrees to help her investigate what happened to both Ben and Gina.
Can two grieving people with secrets find healing on beautiful Hope Island? Or will their quest for truth set them at odds with each other…and with those who will go to any length to keep hidden things hidden?



My Thoughts

This was a very well written and never dull book. I found that I never wanted to put this book down and it always had me wanting to read just one more chapter.

Amy and Curtis have a great friendship in spite of what is going on in the storyline. They both seem to have great hearts with lots of room for understanding and forgiveness. I love that Curtis stepped up as a single Father to Raine, his niece, after his sister passes away. I never expected for the book to go the way that it did but in the end but, it was all good. There are a few surprises here and there, or at least there was for me. This book had lots of suspense with the characters roles. Things never seemed to go as I expected them to go, which just means that this was well written.

This is the second book in this series but that is okay because it would be wonderful as a stand alone book also. This is also the first book that I have read by Colleen Coble and I cannot wait to read more of her work.
