Rats as Pets

  Yes, I said Rats. They make awesome pets and are clean.   Most Rats do not bite, compared to a hamster or gerbil, in the past I have had pet rats and mostly just one rat at a time. I used to keep the rat in a 10 Gal aquarium which I find out is wrong. The rat would just lie in the Aquarium all day and looked depressed. Times have changed for the better for the rat. I started reading and doing research. Rats are sociable. Always have at least two Rats together, same sex of course or you will have many more unless they are neutered. Rats like to run and play with each other and their toys. Homemade toys are the best and are cheap.   Housing:   First let me talk about housing for the Rats. Please don’t keep them in an aquarium. The air does not circulate in them to well and the ammonia builds up quickly from their urine and will cause the rats to have upper respiratory infections. Rats are clean; they clean themselves daily like a cat. They also can be litter box trained.

Cancer in Dogs

It has been awhile since I have posted anything.  There has been a reason why.  We have gone through some great sadness and loss lately. My favorite Best girl, Peepot was diagnosed with Lympho Sarcoma, which is cancer in the Lymph nodes. The Doctor said she may last 2 months. She was able to last 3 months. After ending her suffering we took out Champion Retriever to the Doctor as he was lame on his front right leg for no reason for a couple days. Roux underwent many tests, blood work, several x-rays etc. We sent out blood work test for Valley Fever as that can cause lameness and bone tumors. He had a big very hard swelling on his right front leg's knuckle/knee area that came up suddenly, almost overnight.  The Doctor suspected Bone Cancer, yes, Osteosarcoma, the worst thing that could happen to our fast running always on the go, born to retrieve Champion that loves his work and won't stop Chocolate Labrador.  This photo shows the size of the hard growth on Roux's ri

The Summer Heat and our Pets

            On this past Saturday after calling the Sheriff, I thought I would remind us of the summer heat and what is can and will do our pets. I have seen it first hand and it is not a easy thing to witness or our 4 footed kids, fur babies, extended family.     I was driving down the street and I saw a black dog tied to a post in the center of a yard. The line was tangled and the dog could barely move 6-12 inches. There was no shade for the dog or water. The dog was panting very stressed. I could not go in their yard myself so I called the Sheriff as it was in the county to take care of the situation of the dog being overheated and if left it could possibly die of heatstroke.  We as pet lover's, guardian's of all pet's must not turn the other way. It is a matter of life and death for this animal in a situation like this. Don't turn your back on them, please. We all need to watch out for their safety.   I will not hesitate.    Below are some ch
