Dog Fur Everywhere!

March 6, 2018

Fur for birdsI saw this online and thought it was a good idea for upcycling the fur you are no doubt finding everywhere now that spring is in the air.

Simply empty your dog brush into it and hang it outside for the birds to use to line their nests.

Stress Free Dog Baths

September 28, 2017


Do you struggle to keep your dog – and at least some of the water – inside the tub when it’s bath time? File this under the best dog hack I’ve seen in a long time.

Smear dog-safe peanut butter on the wall around your bath tub. Your dog will be so busy licking it off, he or she may not even notice the water running. This video is a bit more in-depth than just the peanut butter, and shows a VERY well-behaved dog, but it does illustrate the principle.

Skunked!

August 31, 2017

Penny skunk

Poor Penny – she tangled with a skunk under my deck last night.

I’ve done one bath in Dawn (to cut the greasy skunk spray) and baking soda. It helped, but I believe my next step is apple cider vinegar mixed with water. If that doesn’t work, I’ve heard vanilla extract mixed with water can be helpful.

Ugh. She’s not happy. Mom’s not happy. Son’s not happy.

On the bright side, I did catch her before she rolled on any couches or beds to try to get rid of the smell.

I posted earlier in the week about a bill introduced in Rhode Island which would require dog groomers to be licensed. What do you think of that idea?









Would you support licensing dog groomers in your state?

Rhode Island Seeks to License Dog Groomers

April 6, 2017

If you live in Rhode Island and take your dog to the groomer, you may want to weigh in on the pending legislation known as 2017-H 6054. The bill, introduced by State House Majority Leader K. Joseph Shekarchi (D-Warwick), would require that groomers be licensed, similar to the way in which hairstylists and barbers are licensed.

Similar legislation was defeated in 2013, but after a pug recently died during a nail trim at a big box grooming station, Shekarchi re-introduced the idea. No fault has been found in the dog’s death, but the lawmaker thinks this is an idea whose time has come.

Rhode Island would be the first state in the country to create any licensing requirements for dog groomers.
