    I'm working on an update to this based on their little bendy log huts. Will post a new pic when I have a moment to experiment.

    Fleece The Fleece Project: The Study

    Two towels may not be enough, and be sure that it's only one layer of fleece as two may be trapping moisture. I use four, two of which are folded over in areas that they use often. If you're not sure if the pee is wicking fast enough (I've timed mine at 4 seconds with nothing under it, 2 seconds...

    That's the carrier. It's around 12" square or so.

    Blog Naming out of love

    Forgive me. It was something that had been bothering me, I did not intend for it to be a draw for drama. It was my opinion with which I see you and many others do not agree, but then, there are things with which I do not agree either. I am not saying people are wrong, but that *I* as an...

    Blog Naming out of love

    I am letting this die. Please honor that. No more comments will be approved. Further more, due to personal reasons I do not care to discuss, I am pulling back from many online communities with which I have involvement. I do not have time for the drama or games or things which do not contribute...

    Blog Naming out of love

    One, my opinion, and like armpits, everyone has them. Two, the opinions of sociologists, scientists who specialize in social trends and conventions. Three, the opinion of psychologists, scientists who specialize in how the mind works. Four, the subject of my own collegiate research. Five, you...

    Blog My sweet son!

    I've got a lot to do today. I have my son, who is two, helping me. Already today, he picked up his letters, and is picking up his blocks, and helped me to feed the birds. It won't be long until he's feeding cilantro to the piggies... well, maybe a little longer. He's such a great kid. I'm so...

    Blog Naming out of love

    Wow, Res, that was harsh and uncalled for. I was referring to names like Stinky. Stinky is not a diminutive version of "Stinkotomere" and Poopy is not short for "Poopricia" these are, in my feeling, mean-spirited names. Short forms like Bob, Rob, or Robin for Robert or what have you are one...

    Fleece Is fleece bedding the best bedding out there?

    Next time, you can hyperventilate in joy. Ask the nearest employee to show you the fleece if you're not sure where it is (it's usually marked with sign, but they're happy to help). The math is not hard, eventually I'll make a handy dandy diagram to help out, but most people just get a length...

    Any advice on dog training?

    Excellent! And as for distraction, that comes with practice, bonding, and continued training. He's still a puppy, so until he's about a year old or so, expect him to be distracted, like a child.

    Piggies not eating from the hayrack - help

    JD, Awesome Idea! I had not thought of this, and I have one sitting empty on top of my microwave. I'm going to toss it in there, full of hay right now!

    Blog Still fresh and clean!

    It's day, what, four on this fleece? Because my toddler was sick, I spent the morning battling anything and everything that even MIGHT smell bad, swept the fleece, swept the carpet, washed the dishes, took out the trash (took out the bathroom trash too) and washed the icky clothes. This plus...

    Any advice on dog training?

    *sigh* This is me, shutting up now. I tried to keep this light-hearted as a discussion, but I see that's not going to happen. I'm sorry I mentioned what my vet told me. I suppose vets don't know everything. I'm frustrated, just a bit, but I'm not going to be a mindless moonbat about it and get...

    Any advice on dog training?

    The spray stuff can get out while the dog licks, on rare occasions that I give one to my dog, I put it in the kitchen or outside! I have carpet, you see. Purina and pedigree were recommended by my vet over store bought brands. By my vet. My vet. Vet. Vet vet vet. (That's meant to be funny...

    Any advice on dog training?

    Dogs, much like guinea pigs, are not wild animals. They have been domesticated almost as long as man himself. WOLVES have to work for their food. Dogs need to be fed. Otherwise you'd have much fatter abandoned dogs on the street and we would have to fear roving bands of wild dogs hunting us or...

    Any advice on dog training?

    I second blackarrow on this. Your dog is teething, just like a toddler getting new teeth. Make sure your chew toys are really tough, because those tiny dogs have needle sharp teeth made for tearing things to shreds. I'm an owner of large dogs mostly, and though you can expect the chewing to...

    Blog Naming out of love

    There are some that fall on the line, like Tootsie or diminutive versions of names that are cutesy, but some just cross the line. Fatso, Stinky, Stupid--There's an immaturity or perhaps even an anger in the psychology for that and reflected in each derisive name, just as there is psychology...

    Cage Picture this...

    There are day time predators too. If you have a nice place for them to go, I would get or build a little run for supervised outside time. Would post longer but toddler brought me his otter (toy from the zoo).
