Here, too. It's 55 in the house finally, after a low of 54. It was 27 this morning, but, like there, the sun is out. It's...looking at the thermometer...43 out. It's 11.
That's why the scottie acts that way; no guidance from his owner.
The 2 schools of thought on putting up a sign, and it can depend from area to area, are:
If anything happens, you can say that the perimeter was clearly marked.
Or, that you put them up because you knew that your dog was dangerous. It's difficult to win. Definitely call you local P.D. and see what they think.
I'm glad that Chance uses his ring now.
Hopefully, the prices didn't go up much, if at all.
I shop around for vaccines and neuters, since it's difficult to make a mistake with the former, then use the better vet for when there's a problem. The last time that we saw the latter, I was just honest with him about needing to choose a more affordable option for vaccines.
He's not young, and is a 2nd generation vet, and seemed to understand completely. He said that, he knows that we take care of our pets well, as he's been impressed with their health over the years, and that we never hesitate to come to him for the bigger, and often expensive, things.
I hope that the outside birds like their new food.
Those catchers are what I need to eventually get also. Good luck.
Meanwhile, I am going to just start with the hummingbirds. I refreshed my memory on the percent of water to sugar, have my feeder ready to go, and just need to choose the container that I'll keep the food in ice box in.
I need to find, or make, a bit of shade for the feeder. It's strange to think that, since we never had a problem with shade before being here.
Also, if this year is as hot as last, and there's no reason why it wouldn't be, then I'll have to change out the food more often, if there aren't enough birds to eat it in a couple of days, since temperature plays a big role in when the food goes bad.
So, I'm thinking, unless we get a lot of them, that I'll not fill it full, to save waste, and store the food in a pitcher, so that it's easy to pour into the feeder.
I also think that I'll start with a 1:3 ratio, to let them know that we're here, drop down to a 1:4 ratio, then up it just before they leave for the winter.
I've got my sugar, so am ready to go when they arrive, lol! Yeah, I over plan things, just a bit. :-)
That sound good. It's just about time for my pills. I am planning pears. I actually have hard boiled eggs, and 2 pieces of meat cut off of a cube steak that I cooked - enough for 3 or 4 days, but will save them for later on today. I'm trying to eat more than morning pears all day. Enjoy your breakfast. That sounds good, even on the wrong bread.
Thanks, later gator!
