Today’s Muse

 

Muse:  A source of inspiration and a guiding spirit.

Today’s Muse is Madeline who I met at the pet food store (just one of many I frequent).

An adorable young lady who informed me that her t-shirt was a triple hand me down and showed me the worn spots and holes.

When I wondered if my dogs would like a goat dog kibble she ran to the back room and found a sample for them to try (it was pretty goaty stinky but after a few sniffs they gobbled it right down).

She also made sure I got my cash discount and reminded the owner of the store to figure out a good discount for my huge purchase of over 100 lbs of dog food and several bags of parrot food.

This young lady had me smiling the whole time I shopped and I realized that she made my day a better day with her bubbly personality.  Madeline inspired me to be more friendly and helpful and to pay attention to those around me!

My Hero and Today’s Muse, Madeline.

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi!  Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.  What’s in the treat bin this week?

Yup those are freeze dried pig snouts.  How do they taste?  Don’t know yet…  Mom is kind of dragging her feet because she said they are kind of gross.  There are little nose hairs on them!

A good standby.  Dried dish skins, they stink so good.

And especially for Roscoe because he hates the fireworks two boxes of calming aid.

These are roasted chicken flavor and when mom opened one of the packages it smelled soooooo good!

We told mom we were all scared but she knew we just wanted a “lick”!

Extreme dog treats for extreme boy dogs!

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi! Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.

This weeks extreme dog treats? Turkey tails,  lamb pizzle and wild caught cod skins.  Smelly fish skin is one of our favorites but mom sometimes passes over smelly fish skins and gets something like turkey tails…

This week we got something smelly and something boring, a bit light on the snacks this week because:

Mom decided to start researching eco-friendly toys, eco-friendly doggy deodorizing products,  and a FURminator for Roscoe!

When Roscoe was young, before we figured out he had Addison’s disease, he had no fur because of his illness, so no brushing for him because he didn’t need it! Now that he’s been on his medication for Addison’s he’s got lots of fur. But hates brushing because he never had to deal with it before.   The FURminator gets more of that loose hair off of Roscoe before he gets annoyed and whimpers for mom to go away! The stupid brush was over $70  but they just changed the packaging  and the same brush in the old packaging was almost 50% off! Yay mom way to shop!   But mom just think about how many treats you could’ve bought for $35…

 

African Wild Dog Puppies

These adorable puppies were born at the Denver Zoo November 20, 2017.

Three male puppies, Nigel, Theodore Roosevelt and Livingstone, and one female puppy, Cholula.

They are also known as the African Painted Dog because of their gorgeous yellow splotches of color.  Unfortunately they are one of the world’s most endangered mammals so the Denver Zoo was excited to have these four pups born to their loving mom Tilly.

Their natural enemy in the wild is the fierce lion who will kill as many as possible to reduce their population as the wild dog is one of their greatest competitors.

Their quick pace of up to 60 kilometers an hour takes them into many dangerous situations.  Clashing with other wildlife and humans who see them as pests.  They have no ability to fight the diseases they catch from domestic dogs.

These dogs are very social, much like the humans who are eradicating them by stealing their health and their habitat.  These wild dogs are loyal to their packs, they share food with and take care of the other pack members.

Ever notice your own doggies hanging out together.  Just being good pack members!
