Hey out there......Anyone else noticing the price increase in dog food and the severe shortage of Ivermectin?  Just about to kill Jill.  She called and ran all over the state hunting "sensitive diet" and heart worm meds for these kids. 

What the stores are telling her is that customers are using Ivermectin for Covid cures.  What the heck is wrong with their brains?  So now the farmers and dog people can't get it for heartworm.  Has the whole darn world gone crazy?  We can get one bag of food at this store and one bag from another store.  We have 15 kids here and we need supplies.  What a mess this world is in.  HELP!

I have noticed an increase in the price of dog food, but also price increases in just about everything, especially gas!  The ivermectin thing is just crazy.  Yes, stupid people are using a livestock and dog deworming medication as a supposed "cure" for Covid.  I don't trust myself to say anything more.  I have enough heartworm meds to get my dogs through the spring, and I just hope the insanity will have passed by the time I need more.

 

What brand of dog food are you looking for?  I've not noticed any bare shelves at any of the stores I shop at.  But the prices, yikes!

We;ve been going to SAM's for the canned Pedigree that I feed Britany.  She's good on that and refuses almost all others and at 19 yrs of age I don't want to upset her any.  The Diamond Naturals Chicken has gone up $5 and they only have a bag or two.  Purina Sensitive Stomach we're getting from Chewy.com   And just finally found a food that Peanut will eat, Solid Gold Sensitive Stomach.  A friend came out to work on my roof this week end and had a bag of it in her truck.  Gave it to us.  First thing she has ever eaten for more than 2 meals.  WOW!  Look at that price!  Like I said before.........the kids that are left here are very HIGH MAINTENANCE!  Trying to get ready for winter.  I'm going to hibernate.  And by the way..............the roof is looking great.  It just has to get me through a couple more years.  And Carol sure knows her stuff.  A real "dog person".  Didn't have to lock up a single dog.

Arda:  I just ordered three bags of Diamonds Natural Chicken and Rice for you to be delivered tomorrow by Amazon.  Let us know what you need so we can all pitch in.  You deserve all the assistance from all of us who appreciate everything you do and have done for the Dobes.

I'm on the hunt for dog food in the stores near me.  I'm PMing with Jill to figure out exactly which varieties to get.  I'll be in touch with you to arrange dropping it off when (hopefully), I can find some!

Cheri.........What a surprise.  Five bags of Diamond and a case for Britney.  I just can't thank you enough.  And I will remember Nancy forever.  Thank you for thinking of us.  We are trying to get ready for the coming winter which I hear is going to be a blinger.  Evan the squirrels and chipmunks are staking up pine cones for the winter.  And I am storing up TV dinners for me.  Evan pulled the drain on the pond to drop the level of the pond so I don't have to go in after anyone this year.  Now all I need is for MEC to hook up the electricity to the back building for the water pail for Squirt.  And then bring it on.  Many thanks to Cheri and ADM for the food we will need.

Arda, I was so happy to help.  I'm not sure who "adm" is above, but I want to say thank you to him or her for their donation, too, and for all of the other folks I know are helping you out, either with donations or helping you in person at the Swamp, or in other ways, like what Joaquin is doing to keep the board going.  It takes a village, right?

 

It was great to meet Jill in person. :)

 

That sounds like a good idea to lower the water in the pond.  I, too, have heard that winter is supposed to be especially cold and snowy this year.  Not looking forward to that......

Another THANKS goes out to Chuck for the bags of food for the kids.  Hope they didn't give you too much trouble at the gate.  THANKS!

Gotta tell ya another short tail............It frosted Sunday night and I had some plants to bring in from the deck.  "B" team was out in the yard and the deck is fenced off so that they can scream at each others without touching.  Front door is open to drag the plants in and Mouth and Jada are under foot to see what I am doing.  Here comes "B" to add their 2 cents.  Jada was so mad that she bit through the rolled up hose that was hanging on the rails.  Water everywhere.  Now they can't get back to the open door cus the water is spraying all over them.  So MOM to the rescue and with a big old cane for animal control, I drove them through the water and into the house.  Now you know what crates are used for.  "Get your butts to bed."  Jill will be so thrilled to see what happened to the hose she worked so hard to install this Spring.  Did I ever tell you that I hate Dobermanns?

AND today's trick while I was fixing "B" teams breakfast............she found a box of Ridx and tore it all apart in her crate.  What a mess.  And all I wanted to do is watch the reruns of Tom Sellac.
