WHERE TO START......
SOMEBODY FOUND 5 DEAD MICE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DRIVEWAY... MENTALLY LOOKING FOR THE EASY ANSWER I SAID..HOPEFULLY THEY CAME FROM THE HOUSE ON EITHER SIDE .... BUT THINKING ABOUT IT-- THE MOST LIKELY IS OUR TRASH PILE.......SO WHY WOULD WE NOT HAVE PERFECTLY HEALTHY MICE?--
IS THERE SHOMETHING IN OUR TRASH THAT ATTRACTED THEM AND KILLED THEM... WHICH I ABSOLUTELY FORBID ON THE PROPERTY.
THE PROBLEM HERE I WORRY ABOUT .. IS.. IF SOMEONE HERE SEES A PROBLEM AND THINKS THEY WILL JUST SOLVE IT FOR US WITHOUT MENTIONING IT, BUT NOT BEING IN THE BUSINESS, THEY DON'T SEE THE RAMIFICATIONS.. LIKE A DEAD RAT IS A CHEW TOY ...
LET ME REPEAT THE ABSOLUTE RULE-- IF YOU WOULD NOT CHEW IT UP AND SWALLOW IT... DO NOT BRING IT TO CRAZY ACRES WITHOUT MY PERMISSION...THAT IS ME... AS IN CARLENE.... NOT MEGAN.. OR GRACE.. OR ANYONE ELSE.
ALOT OF EXPERIENCE COMES FROM BAD EXPERIENCES.......SO IN POKING AROUND, I FOUND WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH DOGS CHEWING THEIR DOGGIE DOORS... SO SOMEONE GAVE OUR "REPAIR CREW" A SPRAY BOTTLE OF SOME UNKNOWN GOOP TO STOP THEM FROM CHEWING.. NO PROBLEM... IT IS LABELED "NATURAL"
IF I OWNED THE COMPANY WANTING TO SELL THE STUFF, I KNOW THAT USING THE WORD "NATURAL" IS INCLINED TO MAKE PEOPLE STOP THINKING.
.RIGHT... ARSINIC IS NATURAL SO ARE ALOT OF PLANTS- SOME SPECIFICALLY ONLY DANGEROUS FOR DOGS.. OR CATS.. OR HORSES... OR PEOPLE.-.. SO READING THE LABEL ( IN ENGLISH -- OR SPANISH) THERE IS A WARNING- ABOUT EYES... WHICH I NOTICED ONLY BECAUSE AFTER I HANDLED THE BOTTLE, I SMACKED A FLY OFF MY EYEBROW AND BURNED MY EYE SIGNIFICANTLY. - HAS IT BEEN TESTED--- IN PREGNANT ANIMALS??
MAYBE IT WAS SPRAYED ONCE ON A DOG TO NO EFFECT... HOW ABOURT SMEARING IT ALL OVER THIEIR HEAD AND BACK 20 TIMES A DAY...? NOT REALISTIC??? WELL THEY HAVE TO POKE THEIR HEAD RIGHT INTO THE STUFF TO GET IN AND OUT OF THE KENNELS... AND WITH THE SHAPE OF THE DOGS HEAD-- THOSE EYES ARE VERY CLOSE TO THE POKING..AS IT WIPES DOWN THEIR BACK...
IT WAS NOT MADE BY A BIG COMPANY... WHICH MAKES ME THINK.... IF A GOOD TROUBLE FREE ANTI CHEW WERE TO BE MADE.. PURINA OR SOME SUCH BIG NAME .. WOULD MAKE IT.. AND CHARGE FOR TI... AND MAKE MONEY ON IT.
I HATE TO MAKE THIS DECISION... BECAUSE I REALIZE THE WORK INVOLVED.. BUT ALL THOSE DOORS MUST COME DOWN..AND LETS GET THEM OFF THE PREGNAMT / BREEDING DOGS FIRST.
KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR ANY RAT POISON THAT ANY GOOD MEANING PERSON HAS PUT AROUND... I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT KILLED THOSE MICE IN OUR DRIVEWAY.OTHER THAN THAT...
I HAVE SOME EGGS TO WORK ON...WE WILL BE DOING TH ESHATTING IN THE G-TENT..
They did well enough today at the mall that we continued on to Home Depot and then to the bank. John is beginning to enjoy the positive attention that Jess generates (lots of "beautiful dog" and "what a well behaved dog" comments), and he is doing a good job telling people she is a working dog so they can't pet her. She is also doing real well loading up when we go out.
You guys have done and are doing such a great job helping us along in this process. We are grateful to every one of the workers and volunteers at SDP. See you Tuesday. Paul
