2021 Floral Landscape (Part 2)

2021 Floral Landscape (Part 2)

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Today is the second part of my 2021 Floral Landscape design along with some helpful information I’ve learned along the way.  Normally I plant and then wait a year to blog about it since perennials and shrubs take awhile to bloom and spread out but this year I couldn’t wait.  Our goal was to finish our shed and start on the landscape around the shed (more to see next year) which we accomplished but I’ve had a few people ask me about deer resistant plants.  In this...

How To Treat Dog Lice

How To Treat Dog Lice

Happy Wednesday everyone!  As promised, today’s post is a continuation of Monday’s “What Are Dog Lice?.  There was a wealth of information out there about doggie lice and to put it all into one post would have been a lot.  I’m hoping my posts can help clear up any questions you have about your pet’s skin issues, itching, behavioral changes, etc.  When our pets do not feel good, their personalities can reflect how they feel and if we can’t find the root problem, our pets suffer.  Today we are...

What Are Dog Lice?

What Are Dog Lice?

Happy Monday everyone!  It’s funny how conversations can bring up new ideas for blog posts and this one comes from talks about head lice which made me wonder if dogs can get lice?  Lice on dogs are not the most common infestation, but it can happen. So what are dog lice, and how did they end up on your dog?  I found some great references on https://www.homesalive.ca and https://www.vet.bc.ca/lice.pml and so much that I might continue this post on Wednesday so that I am able to give all the...

Developing Trust And A Routine

Developing Trust And A Routine

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Developing Trust and A Routine!  We all want that in our lives and as I said in my last post, animals are just like humans which means they want trust too.  Animals learn to love and protect as soon as they are born and it is up to us humans to nurture these habits and personalities.  Establishing a routine and schedule for your pet in turn allows them to adapt easily and trust you and their environment. I thought I'd show you some adorable pictures of Jake when he...
