Exciting News!

Hi all!

We brought Belle our blue merle Sheltie with us on this trip.  She was expecting and due while we were gone.  Although my 22 year old son stayed home this trip, he has a full time job that keeps him busy and away from home from 7:00 in the morning until around 6:00 at night.  He takes care of the dogs normally while we are gone, but I did not want him to have to deal with puppies too!


So we loaded a large crate and a very large Belle the morning we left.  That was this past Wednesday.  Thursday evening she decided to bless us with 5 warm, squiggling little pups.  We ended up with two blue merles (1 male and 1 female), two trip colors (1 male and 1 female) and one that I believe is called a cryptic blue.  She is trip color like dad, but on her nose, one ear and a couple spots on her back are blue merle.  They are all adorable!



All of them are doing very well.  Belle is a super mom and did not need any assistance and she actually seems to be enjoying the trip.  You can see how adorable they are in the couple of pictures here.



Now we get to watch them grow while on the road.  This will be a new experience for us, and Belle, so I will share some photos occasionally to show you how they are doing.

Stop in again soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
