Sara Laiea – Fond Farewell

Puppy Sara, August 2003

It was August of 2003. Our daughter and grandchildren were here for a visit. We had been out shopping all day – sans husband – and when we were nearly home I got a call from my husband, who was at home, to ask when we would be . . . → Read More: Sara Laiea – Fond Farewell

Flea Infestation – Your Pet, Your Home

Many years ago when my daughter was about 18 mos. old, we had two miniature poodles. All of us went out of town one weekend and returned Sunday night. I put my daughter down on the floor to walk around and to play as we put our bags in the bedroom. Within minutes, my daughter . . . → Read More: Flea Infestation – Your Pet, Your Home

Household Items Harmful to Your Pet

Many of us have had scrapes with toxic products and our pets. Those who have not are lucky. It is pretty scary. Mostly, I think, because the pet can’t talk so you have to figure it out…figure it out fast…and get them the correct help.

New Born Kittens

In our quest to get all the feral cats fixed, we still have at least six left, possibly seven. The year-old Cassie is one of them, a pastel gray tortoise, and, though she lived in the back yard and even frequently slept in my office (accessed by the doggie door) during the winter, she has . . . → Read More: New Born Kittens

Dew Claws

Our foundling puppies had their dew claws – all four legs! – when we found them. Having always gotten puppies from a breeder, dew claws were always removed. We thought we’d have the boys’ dew claws removed when they went in for neutering. Alas, such was not the case.

Dew claws are basically thumbs and . . . → Read More: Dew Claws

And, no, I am not advocating biting your dog’s ear like in “Snow Dogs” but your authority needs to be established. There are some good articles out there to tell you how . . . → Read More: Are You The Alpha Dog?

Burned Pet Tongues

We had a terrible event over Thanksgiving weekend. My darling Sophie (my precious black kitten) got her tongue burned very badly. We were having TG on Friday due to schedule issues with our boys. We made spaghetti on Thursday night and put the can of hot grease from cooking the hamburger in one of the . . . → Read More: Burned Pet Tongues

Cap With LED Lights -Why didn’t I think of that?

Here at Keller Farms, the winter marks many hours of no daylight being outside tending to horses or cats or dogs. Anyone who has had to feed or water or check on horses in the dark knows how difficult it is to do it with a flashlight! Having to hold a flashlight takes …anyone, anyone?…a . . . → Read More: Cap With LED Lights -Why didn’t I think of that?

Neutering And Spaying Your Pets

Dealing with all these feral cats has made me a bit more mindful about “fixing” cats and dogs. Out of all these feral cats I have, I was only able to get one in a cage and take in to the SPCA. It was Bear. He is wary of me now and the others I . . . → Read More: Neutering And Spaying Your Pets
