Reflection on the Larceny of Squirrels

The other day, I watched one neighboring squirrel raid the nest of the homesteader in our front yard tree. A few days later, the homesteader buried another cache of nuts on our boulevard. As soon as he left, the neighbor came over, searched, pillaged and re-buried our homesteader's bounty. No wonder the homesteader can't find his stockpile!

Purple-blue night into
Blue-white day,
On the glacier,
There he lay...



Kitty Lifting

Does your kitty go ballistic when you pick her up? The problem could be in how you are lifting her.
If you lift your kitten by the “scruff of his neck” please stop. Some people think that is how mothers carry their kittens, but really — it isn’t.



Feeding Your Dog

Many dogs will eat just about anything, but, just as you don’t let a child eat everything they desire, you don’t feed your dog everything he will eat. Feed your dog the best food you can afford within your dog food budget.



Puppy Bites

No matter what we do with our dogs, they learn from it. Don’t offer your puppy your body parts as toys. Offer toys that he can chew and toys that he can tug at without worry about injury to either him or you.
