After running around to get everything ready for the vet, I discovered he was coming NEXT Tuesday. LOL. That actually will be better, as I can bathe Maggie before then. She is healing quickly, but looks a mess. I still must wear my respirator around Tara.
I bathed Tara in an animal shampoo that claims to contain no synthetic fragrance a week ago. I became very ill. After bathing her 3 more times in safe shampoo, I still cannot let her in the house. Even outdoors, I get a headache and lung reaction from her. She has had to stay outdoors and I had to install a dog door in our shed with a bed and heat lamp for her. She is very distraught and refuses to eat, so I must force feed her. I spoke to the actual maker of the fragrance that goes into the shampoo, and it is partly synthetic, explaining why I am ill and reacting. An attorney told me this constitutes consumer fraud and to contact the Az. Attorney General’s office. He also said it may constitute a class action case.
This, however, does nothing to solve the problem of me reacting to Tara, who is unhappy and refusing to eat. I am furious because I expect integrity from others, not blatant lies on a company’s website.

Tomorrow, I will give her another bath. All this has taken time away from other things I should be attending to.

Patty dug under the new divider fence and I had to spend an hour installing a hot wire along the bottom of it to deter her.
She always proving why she was constantly escaping and being impounded before coming to JERAS. She has no desire to run away from here, but she wants to be able to follow me everywhere, even if it is only the adjacent yard.

I want to rum down and soak and trim Flash now before the sun goes down and it is time for evening feeding. Shorter days mean less time for outside chores.  Adios!

I have been working my way through bathing all the dogs, since it is warm enough to do them outdoors. Today, Mocha, Liza and Patty got baths. Yesterday, I did Tara. She hates the water, but she sure looks nice now.

We are having gorgeous weather- no need for A/C or heat. If we are lucky, we will get a few weeks of this, before the nights get so cold as to require the heater on.

Raven showed up with a very swollen eyelid 2 days ago. I was able to get a pretty good look at his eye, which seemed to be ok. I have been putting antibiotic ointment in his eye and today there is less swelling. I am suspecting a bug bite as the cause. He is so sweet and so agreeable to being treated.

Helloooo from Raven!

All the dogs got walked this morning. I am now linking Mocha and Liza together. It is working out well. They pull against each other instead of pulling me. That leaves my other arm free for Missy. Carson and Bear go together, and Rainy and Tara are the other pair. Maggie usually does not want to go, and prefers staying home. Today, I had given her an early morning haircut. She then decided to go for a walk with us to show off her new “do”. I let her come off-leash, as she minds well. Bad idea- she found some cow pies from the range cattle and had a good roll. So, she then needed a bath when we got home.


Never, ever a dull moment at JERAS.
