July 2, 2013-A Simple Woman Daybook Entry

FOR TODAY Outside my window… It’s evening as I write this and in the quiet of the night (does that sound cliche or what?), thinking of the beauty of the heavens above. How precious life is and there is just something about summer nights that stands out from all other nights…. Okay….sounds like another cliche,…

The Exquisite Pain of Impatience

You know how when you plan a vacation for a year, it’s all well and good but the last week before you go is torture?

It’s kind of like that.

I have this bottle of Dom in the pantry. I got it for my wedding in 2001.

dom

 

I haven’t touched it all these years, not even for any of the following occasions:

  • 1st anniversary
  • 10th anniversary
  • birth of first child
  • graduating vet school
  • buying house
  • selling house

But next Tuesday, I might be opening it. I might be celebrating the culmination of something I have been working on for months now (but really much longer than that); or, if it falls through, I’ll be sadly putting it back into the pantry, lonely and abandoned. But I’m hoping that’s not the case. I hope on Tuesday I’ll be posting a picture of me and the champagne flute and I can tell you about something I’m kind of frothing at the mouth over.

This is going to be a long week.

Any dog has the potential to react and snap if tri…

Any dog has the potential to react and snap if triggered. I have a 12 year old black lab who I got as a puppy. He is my baby and my everything, has been raised around people – adults, children and the elderly – dogs, cats and horses. He is extremely well-socialized, sweeter than anything and on top of that his breed is well-known to be among the most gentle, fun loving, affectionate dogs and great with kids. Despite all this, he has his triggers just like any other dog, and since he is old his joints often hurt, making him cranky. He has growled at children before when they get in his face too much, and though he's never gotten to the point of biting someone (I've always been there to stop the interactions before they got too far), I would never leave him unsupervised with 7 kids – or any dog, for that matter. It's not about the breed; it's about a lack of parental supervision. Had an adult been around to see Gava's reactions to the rough housing, I'm sure the whole tragic situation could have been prevented.

Q&A: How should I bathe my guinea pig?

Question by Jacqueline: How should I bathe my guinea pig?
He’s stinky, dirty, oily, and has chips tucked into his fur. Plus he’s losing hair a lot. I think he had mange mites before, because he had a patch of hair completely gone but now it’s just recovered and well. And he stopped making those vibrating noise when I pet them. What kind of soap should I use to bathe him?
And yes I know that I shouldn’t bathe my guinea pig regularly, as he would lose his oils. But basically I just want to have him nice and clean, and plus make sure he doesn’t get so dry.

Best answer:

Answer by pupgranny
You can wash him with mild baby shampoo. Just make sure to blow dry well, and keep him warm. Obviously don’t do it more than once ever 2 weeks… Show piggies get baths…

Be sure he’s treated with ivermectin regularly, like monthly so he doesn’t have mites.
