Not much knitting content in this post
Here is the knitting content: I'm contemplating frogging my logcabin. I need that yarn combo for something else. I cannot pick up stitches (still because of arm fears) yet. I love the colors and don't want to waste it. Hmmmmmmmmm.
I took this shot of a poochie enjoying a carride! My friend Diane's granddog Violet wears goggles for her joyrides. So cool.
Now for some interesting thoughts from my little sister the Veterinarian:
The new Dental intern at her Vet school says that feeding hard food to pets doesn't do a thing for their teerh. Total misconception. (WOW) The thing that actually made Huck's teeth beautiful, I am told, is that I brushed them. So get brushing folks!
If you have a boy kitty, like Radar, you can discourage kidney stones by feeding wet food. If they arent' good water drinkers and they only get hard food, it can exacerbate a kidney stone issue.
If your kitty needs a new kidney, the Univeristy of Madison does transplants. It costs thousands, and the cool thing is:
You get the kidney from a colony donor cat, and you have to adopt the donor too! So these cats are bred and raised for healthy kidneys so they can be donors. ........Now you can ponder that during your knitting today.....
People think their dog is dying when it is reverse snoring. Sort of snorting. Their tongue may be stuck on the roof of their
mouth. SO check it out. Just get their tongue back to norm and they will be fine.
About those dog bones, well back to the Dental Vet:
He says that if you hit your dogs bone on your own knee and hit hurts, it is too hard for the dog's teeth.
Who cares? Well they can crack the teeth and lead to big dental repair bills. and pain for your pooch!
The other bone trick is to try to nail a hammer into the bone. IF you can't, then it is too hard for your dog's teeth.
So that's it for today . My cats are really being attentive to us since Hucky passed. They know. For sure, they know
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
