Feb 9th 2013 11:10AM I'm all for nature in it's appropriate place. Ts & Ls do NOT belong in a residential area in the USA. I am a World Class, Master, Professional Dog Breeder, known arounds the world in my breed & I could NOT get a kennel license in NJ or Pa.. despite a record of safety, care & cleanliness BAR NONE yggat my previous kennel which due to being 70 became too much work & trouble, with the boarders & grooming customers; which I needed to have for income; as I never made a profit on dog breeding. This forces people to buy from pet shops, puppy farms & back yard breeders. People in the USA are very unsophisticated about dogs, unlike Europeans. After all, the creme de la creme did not emigrate to the USA !! No one is perfect & animals in the best facility have gotten loose. Those who advocate for this situation are flaunting their 100 IQ.
Jul 12th 2012 3:21PM HE owns the property. US gov. is TOOOOOOOOOOOO intrusive. LOTS of people run a business from home & why not. As long as it does not bother the neighbors then leave him alone. My experience with zoning boards is they all work for someone & don't have control over their own life. So they want to boss other people around. Luckily the inspector realized this & allowed me to operate with my improvements until Spring when blacktop would be available for paving the parking lot; which was MY idea NOT their demand.
All wooden houses have building permits but are death traps.
Jan 24th 2012 6:44PM We R all btween a rock & a hard place. This is not for rescue cats but from pure bred show catteries; as oppossed to pet shop cats or cats bred from pet or pet shop cats. Lifetime show breeders keep & breed the creme de la creme in health, structure, coat & temperament. THEREFORE over time they can consistently have better quality cats on offer, using quality control. They know their line, it's possible problems plus what does & does not work in medical care & medications. If your breeder is anywhere nearby ask for recommendations or owners of their breeding local to you that could reccomend a vet.
In dogs it is very much the same. I use daily heartworm I order thru the mail. I pay $78.00 for 1,000 - 200 mg pills for up to 80 lb dog. free shipping. That is 2 1/2 years worth if given every day, inc. over the winter. That is $31.50 per year. MUCH CHEAPER than monthly, particularly for multiple dog households. Pancake syrup on a spoon & pills on top are DEVOWERED by 1 & all. After the 1`st year DHPP need only be given every 3 years at most, same as rabies ( which are free at clinics). Para I give when I expect the dogs will be exposed to other dogg, as it is airborn. Except rabies I can get the shots thru the mail for about $2.00 each; needles too. DHPP is subq. Para is intranasal. Virtually anyone can give these innocs. If you have your dog from a pro breeder you can observe the tecnique & then do it yourself. I have for over 60 years. The closer you are to a pro breeder the more you can learn. FOR ANYTHING ELSE i GO TO A VET; preferably to one that treats the dogs of pro breeders ( not COMMERCIAL). mY VET IS A PARAGON & i'M LUCKY. hE ALSO GIVES SENIOR DISCOUNTS. That said : I have an Eagle eye & notice EVERYTHING. I see things other dog owners do not. When I tell my vet a symptom even if he can't see it, he believes ME. I can look in a dogs eyes & see something is wrong internally. I only go to the vet if I MUST: not yearly. If you learn how to do things for yourself, then you save MUCHO $. I don't do yearely bloodwork for HW. I give the pills EVERY day. They swallow them FOR SURE with the syrup sitting at my feet. I've used them since HW was determined to be a country wide problem, in the 1960's. Once they were no longer mfgd in the US or Germany I searched the web for ONE WEEK every day & found a place selling them. HURRAH! If you are 100 % faithful in giving pills the dogs are safe. The med is VERY low in toxicity, needing 5X the HW dose to be used to kill round worm; I don't use it for that, but know the details. A full grown dog from Conn had HW when I acquired her. The vet missed the vein & all the skin on her front leg died & fell off. DONT ASK. At that time Arsenic was used for killing the HW. So I surely made sure that I gave the pills VERY FAITHFULLY.
My vet says the VMAssoc. requires every dog be given a health check once a year before any treatment or they get into SERIOUS trouble. So I just don't go without real cause. Vets are like Drs.. plenty with a license but not always universally suited to ALL clients. Pick & choose wisely & use a pro breeder, if you were smart enough to buy from one for a refferal. Besides LOVING their dogs they have 20, 30 & 40 years of planning, work & investment to come up with that SUPER one that will benefit the breed, & can't take a chance on loosing it, as they won't live long enough to do it again; so MUST have an A#1 vet.
Jan 21st 2012 8:21PM The best headboard I've ever had was a ceiling high bookcase. It was missing a door on the bottom. I took off the other door & store pillows in that space, which is hidden by the box spring, mattress & undercarriage. I keep books on the top shelves that I buy from the library ( extra copy discards) for $.50 % $.25 each.) Lower I keep tissue, powder, spray, q tips, & the like. Bottom I keep all my viamins, meds; behind a bolster I can lean against while reading or watching TV. I also clip a photogs lamp to a shelf & can twist it to focus wherever.
Necessity is the mother of invention. A remodling person I knew always offered me any material his clients were discarding. Works for me along with Sun PM at the flea market when vendors discard what they don't want to take home : Englistown, NJ FM.
Nov 20th 2011 1:03PM Those flats ?? I would not take them as a gift. The suggestions are nonsense. Unless you are going to a state dinner affair, wear what fits, has a color that enhances you, that is classic, not trendy. Layer in cold weather. Shoes should be comfy & supportive.
Sneaks are NOT for the office unless it is a casual office. Pants suits are flattering for most & no worry about hemlines going up & down. Some excellent clothing can be had from 2nd hand stores so don't poo pooh them. I tok a friend to a flea market where on Sun PM FREE clothes can be had. Her office co workers would not believe her new wardrobe came from dumpster diving. I took home an A#1 post hole digger, ceramic tiles, a step stool, etc.. There are also FREE exchanges listed on WWW. You bring whatever & give away, & take what others give away. THAT is community !!
Sep 23rd 2011 3:19PM This dog should be neutered before placement.
Aug 29th 2011 6:51PM Simple solution for many: allow people to split the house and makje it two family. Rent or sell the other half. Most people bought houses TOO big: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, big basement and only two people in the house at night: working all week.
Jul 21st 2011 2:09PM Honey, you've been talking to the wrong girls : ie bar flies. Join a hiking club and browse gardening forums and other "natural living" sites. Go to a Pa grange event or a Rodale event. These are down to earth people who would appreciate your vibes and talents. BIG PRAISE for you father.. a real "dad". Also visit the community gardens in Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. You will find REAL women there, not fashion mannekins.
Jul 16th 2011 4:20PM This is about the Welsh Corgi escaping from the crate ( no where to comment on that video). NEVER buy or use a crate that does not have a SPRING LOADED catch. You can't usually buy them at pet shops. Some dog supply catalogs have them. Go to www.AKC.org and email the club of your breed or your local breed club and ask where you can get such crates. Also go to Moss Bow dog show site on the web( they run the shows: entries, grounds, tents, ribbons, catalogs, etc). Find a show in your area and attend. Concessions sell crates. You can also observe the crates used for the exhibitors dogs and ask from whom they were purchased. Just don't ask them as they are preparing to go into the ring with their dog. There is MORE to see than the crates; but that will get you to a show which will open a BIG door to you to enjoy and learn from. Most shows have oediencew competition and other dog sports. Bring your own food and drinks, chair and umbrella if it is outside. ENJOY and LEARN. There are dog books for sale also.
Jun 16th 2011 3:33PM Large families were the norm: due to rural life and very little cotraception. Also because so many people DIED early. Childhood diseases and birthing problems killed large numbers. Disease ( tYHUS, cHOLERA, Yellow fever, malaria, PLAGUE and so on) killed many more ( one of the Wright brothers). Accidents, gunshot wounds and food poisoning killed more. Plain starvation directly or indirectly killed millions. Infanticide was far from unknown. Ever heard of Easter Is.? The inhabitants cut down their last tree, overpopulated and ALL died.
The more people the more products are used and more waste is produced, inc. LOTS of poisonous chemicals. Look at AFRICA.. they are killing their countries too: oil polution, ruining rivers and water digging diamonds, gold, etc.. not to mention their WILDLIFE. If you are religious remember we should SHARE the earth, NOT take it over. If some people can procreate unrestraigned, then those who have 1 child and can't cARE FOR IT should have mandatory bith control injections. We all live on this planet : we SHARE it. Some people don't share, they HOG. Because you can do something does not mean you should do it. We are all stuck on this planet and we are ruinin it. FOR SHAME!
