Pixie has been doing really well. She’s adjusting to not getting out but we are making the best of the what we call the normal for now to stay healthy. We spend time outside in the fresh air, we also work on keeping on her training in the yard so it’s a di setting then just the house so she doesn’t lose her skills. She’s doing fabulous and we do this this each day, along with inside training. We been really trying to keep busy at home.
We hope you are well and and stay safe and healthy.

TOMMY WROTE THIS DISCERTATION ON FACE TOUCHING.
DR, NUGENTS NUGGET
Life has changed. It is unclear how long this virus will persist, but here are some precautions which may control its spread and one's exposure.
It seems that Covid-19 persists on objects for varying lengths of time. Most of what is published says hours or more. It is speculated that contact with infected surfaces may be sufficient to contract the virus. The virus most commonly enters the body by means of the face. The mucus membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth are the most common points of entry for the virus.
Masks, if of sufficient filtration capabilities, will help prevent an individual from becoming infected by inhaling the virus from a cough or someone's breath, but the 6' precautions and proper coughing techniques (into bend of elbow) limit that type of spread, if followed.
From what is written, it seems that hand-to-face infection is most common. That means that gloves are more important for protection from infection than masks. While in public, wearing disposable gloves will provide more protection than a mask, so long as one keeps a 6+ foot distance-barrier and otherwise protects against airborne viral particles; i.e. don't let anyone cough in your face.
The most important result of wearing gloves is that it reminds us not to touch our face. Before entering your safe zone, such as car or home, remove gloves and wash your hands the 20 seconds or more suggested. (Alcohol cleansers are also effective, but it is best to wash them. At least do something.)
Gas pumps and cash are concerning. It is unclear if either of these can transmit the virus, but caution is suggested. Lots of people handle those gas pumps and lots of people have handled your change. Gloves should be worn while pumping gas and it might be a good time for full service gas stations to reemerge and give people jobs. Until then, the use of gloves is recommended when touching objects frequently touched by others. Cash transactions should be minimized. It is difficult to envision a better means of spreading an infection than cash.
There is so little known about the transmission of this virus that it is important to follow the recommendations provided by the CDC and other agencies who know much more about this than I. Follow the distance and group limitation recommendations, wear disposable gloves in public, wash hands frequently and limit the use of cash. Credit cards are more easily cleaned.
Fact is, while quarantine practices are taught in medicine, they have rarely been executed on this scale. The only experience I have had with quarantines came from yrs of horse experience during which several out-breaks of infection required quarantines. One thing I do know is that we would never have let horses use the same gas pump or pass around cash when trying to contain something...
Eat smart, get plenty of fresh air and sunshine. This too shall pass...
