Tracheal Collapse in Morkies

Image
Our poor boy.   He is 10 years old and due to the fact he has tracheal collapse, when he gets kennel cough it's a long and stressful recovery for him and us, his humans.  He has contracted it several times in his doggie lifetime.

The most recent time, (aka now),  he got it from one of our other 2 dogs that went to the groomer.  3 days after getting groomed the other 2 dogs started coughing and sneezing like crazy.  That spread through the house quickly until all the dogs were coughing.

The good news?  3 out of the 4 dogs recovered within 3 days on the meds.  The bad news is Marcus is lagging behind.  All the dogs were prescribed Clavomax.  That didn't seem to do the "trick" for Marcus so after consulting with our veterinarian he was switched to Baytril.  Cross your fingers this works quickly.

What is Kennel cough? It's a infectious tracheobronchitis.  In simple English, it's a doggie cold.
There are many different strains just like the human common cold.   T…

For the last 2 years I have raised Monarch caterpillars in my home.  Last year I released 164 healthy, beautiful butterflies.  In 2019 I want to double that amount.  There's no better way to do that than to get a nice BIG, sturdy, enclosure.  I will be raising some outdoors and indoors like I did years prior.

This enclosure is super easy to assemble.  Click on the link above and watch the video.

Generac Generator 7042

We have lost power so many times in the past 10 years I have lost count.

Ice storms, a tornado, hurricanes and one particular nasty snow/ice storm in October a few years back.  We were without power for 10 days!!!!  Luckily we have a wood stove however it didn't heat the whole house.  Our poor rescue dogs were not happy. My rescues Dark and cold 

If dark and cold isn't bad enough, we lost all of our frozen and refrigerated food several times over the years.  Thousands of dollars in food thrown away. 

We finally decided to get a generator.  We wanted one that powered the entire house which is just shy of 4,000 sf.  My husband did a lot of research and we decided on the Generac 7042.  We signed the contract back in early August of 2018.  It took quite a few weeks for the generator to come in.  It was around 2 months.  Once it did, our contractor contacted us to set up the installation.   Keep in mind, you'll have to set aside a few days to let the contractors do their work. …

Ladies Fireplace Gloves

I am constantly burning my hands on the fireplace insert so I purchased these.

Thick but not bulky fire resistant ladies gloves.  Snug fit in the finger area which enables for a good grip on the wood I put into the fire. 

Heavy Duty heat resistant with flame retardant.  Great for BBQ, welding or putting wood into the fireplace. 

The gloves are long for added protection.  They almost go up to my elbows.
