Couldn't resist putting this one in. I don't give a hoot, cuz her's so coot.
Lil Maggie gets very few toys because Cesar, the dog whisperer. says that too many toys causes anxiety in your dog. My sister's dog, Pedi, has a truck load of toys and that dog is so anxious that that most of the family is still carrying the mental scars from some of his displays. Whew!
I need to share a page from the journal I kept when mom was dying and we were all staying in the same house with our respective pups. That experience made "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" seems like a day at the park.
Well, last week, while shopping at my favorite, just around the corner Wally World store, I passed this little owl, it said, "take me home." Actually it hoots, but it's little hooter broke shortly after I got it home, which was a blessing. Another problem I have with dog toys is that they all say, "made in China". I'm a little nervous about that "made in China" stuff for dogs and children. I just don't trust it anymore since the dog food ingredients that came from China killed so many dogs and cats. Why can't someone here in America start a dog toy business. Just go to your favorite dog store and try to find a doggie toy that says, made in the USA.
Since the dog food scare, I have even been cooking the Magster her own dog food. I can't afford to lose my best friend because a best friend is not easy to come by. Even if I'm too tired to cook something for myself, I find the energy to cook her up something. I only have to do it about twice a week because she is cool with leftovers in between.
I am sure that there are some commercially prepared dog foods that are probably safe and maybe even safer than what we eat but who knows? I test Maggie's food first. If it doesn't kill me then it's good enough for her.
If you decide to cook your own dog food make sure not to include things that have been determined to be dangerous to dogs, ie onions, grapes, raisins, and chocolate. There is a more inclusive list available on Wikipedia.
