Dog Food


We feed our big poochy some unusual things. She decided if it’s worth it. We kept scraps from the deer and elk we hunted last fall. Some of it kept in the freezer and some was preserved in our cheap-as-crazy outdoor freezer (compliments of our northern winter: any box on the porch). The last piece […]

Cure for Dog Nests


No more nests. The dog is spoiled enough, I thought, in her insulated little shack with the burlap door and a big green fuzzy blanket. It got down to -30C and Hubby kept insisting that I put straw in her house too. After cooking her dog bones, drying her frozen hide and saving from everything […]

The Dog got Smashed


That dog has been nothing but trouble. I have had mixed feelings about her. She digs up my flower beds, she won’t chase the animals away from the hay…lazy pup! She won’t eat the dog food or even raw meat anymore. Hubby has got me to cook her meat….get that! All that being said, I saved […]

Making the Dog a Nest


This nesting thing has been going on for weeeeeeekks! I don’t get it. Here’s what I’m thinking: Make the dog a nest she can enjoy so my yard and plants don’t have to get plowed in a hole-by-hole fashion. I think she’s crazy, but I’ll go with it for now. I got an armful of straw from […]

She’s bouncy and happy again…miracle of miracles! I still remember the moments of trauma – wondering if she would make it. I made this video in […]

Scary Rescue from the Dugout


I’m inside. The door swings open. Hubby yells “The dog’s in the dugout. Come fast. She’ll soon be dead!” It’s minus 10C outside. The dugout is frozen over with ice, except for the open hole in the middle that is kept open by the aeration fan. I know where she (the dog) is before I even […]

She loves us


Puppy suffered lots for her altercation with the prickly porcupine. she laid around for days barely moving. I thought she might not need the penicillin as dogs are quite resilient that way. I don’t like to take penicillin myself (another paranoia) so I’d rather not give it to her if I don’t have to. I wonder if […]

I’m Forced to do Emergency Surgery


This morning Hubby found our dog full of Porcupine quills. The most encouraging thing was that there was only one in her nose. The rest were all down her front left side. Despite the panic we felt, we discussed this as quickly and logically as we could. 1. Pull them out 2. Take her to the […]
