LakeGirl 779 Posted July 6, 2015 Report Share Posted July 6, 2015 Well, we had Critter Control placing traps in our yard for three nights. First night got a skunk and an oppossum, second night a reccoon and an oppossum, third night one raccoon. Then it was time to pull the truck out of the shelter and clean up. Mentioned to the vet that we would use mothballs to deter more raccoons moving in, and she advised that mothballs are very toxic to dogs, so we told her that we'd be hanging the mothballs in knee high nylon stockings from the ceiling of the storage shelter where Kaposia could not reach them and she was fine with that. Latest stool culture revealed that Kaposia's free of parasites (whew!) Felt soooo bad having to give her anti parasite meds so young. The vet also recommended adding cooked veggies to her food to soothe her digestive system due to meds. Typical "kid" ...hates green beans, loves carrots & sweet potatoes. I also occasionally put about 1/8 cup of plain keefer over her kibble....now she turns her nose up at plain kibble and looks at the refrigerator as if to say, "You know I like my kibble a-la-keefer!" She's reached a weight of 17.6 pounds, has a nice shiny adult coat over most of her body, and has lost 3 baby incisors. She has learned to sit quietly before we exit the house. Potty training is better, but not complete. We're glad the vaccinations are to the point where we can take her out for walks now...but boy does she pull! ...have to work on that. Photos attached of the varmints that were trapped, and one of the games we play with Kaposia to burn noff some of that puppy energy. The game is one suggested in Cesar Milan's book involving a bamboo pole, about 6 feet of strong string, and a squeaky toy. I have some nice video of the game, but had trouble uploading it. Well, I was only able to attach two photos, one of the game and one of Kaposia with two new toys, the rest of the photos gave a message that the file was too large to upload. Best to all of you. I'm sure you're all as in love with your pups as we are with ours! 5 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
