Petland stores are still supporting puppy mills

A Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) follow-up investigation has found that Petland stores are still supporting puppy mills, including some of the largest and most notorious in the country.
The new investigation of Petland's puppy sources also traced shipments of puppies from out of state brokers to more than 95 percent of Petland's domestic stores, revealing once again that the chain is supporting puppy mills.

More than 80 stores were linked directly to the Hunte Corporation alone, a massive Missouri broker that resells about 80,000 puppies a year and has documented Animal Welfare Act violations.

Best Homemade Dog Biscuits

I have just the easiest recipe for milk bone biscuits : I double this recipe and get about 60+ small bones.
3/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3 cups whole wheat flour
Variation: increase margarine to 1/2 cup and add 2 teaspoons sugar
In large bowl pour hot water over the margarine. Stir in powdered milk, salt, and egg. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Knead for a few minutes to form stiff dough. Pat or roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into bone shapes. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes. Cool. They will dry out quite hard. Makes about 1 1/4 pounds of biscuits. Costs around 30 cents per pound.

Wheaten Litter

Mama Bailey with her pups. Feeding time is lots of juxtapositioning to get to just the right spot!

Bailey is a really good mom. Very attentive to her pups!

Wooden Scottie Box

Check out this really cool wooden box my niece found in her Grandmother's things. Of course she thought of me to pass this on to.
How cool is this?

Wheaten Scottie Puppies

We are so fortunate to have a litter of six new Scottie puppies. They are almost three weeks old. This litter is a darker wheaten color - 4 boys and 2 girls! Just precious! The girls are the lighter ones
