    That shot of Pumpkin would make a great Christmas card.

    MRD - how did you get Bogie to swallow the peroxide?

    I want to know the answer to this too. I'm not sure there is any way I could get Libby to swallow it.

    A long time ago, the vet gave us a HUGE syringe for administering a liquid medicine to one of the dogs. We used that. I held the dog, my husband pried open his mouth and shot the peroxide down the back of his throat. (note: no needle on the syringe). We've found the syringe good for a lot of liquid meds.

    It HAS TO BE DONE OUTSIDE as they start vomiting quickly. The peroxide foams in the stomach and it comes back in a flash and the poor dog must have heaved for 10 min. He doesn't mess with food anymore that is not his, let me tell you.

    MB-that cat in the Christmas tree has to be one of the cutest pictures I've ever seen.

    I should add that we have a small dog, so the vet told us one tablespoon. I would think you might need to adjust the dosage for a larger dog. But you'd have to check with the vet or see if you can google it.
    Let me tell you it works really really really well and really fast, so get in and get out of the way!


    Also you could use an eye dropper or a turkey baster if you don't have a syringe. You can get a $1 turkey baster at most Dollar stores. As I wouldn't reuse the turkey baster for my Thanksgiving turkey after shoving it down the dogs throat even if I did give it a good wash!

    Animals and children will do their best to embarrass you at every chance they get.
    Our minister came by this afternoon with some things he wants me to help with our church that I said I would do. We were also discussing some other issues when I look over and Bogie is humping Rosie RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE PASTOR. I wanted to crawl under the carpet.

    He didn't say anything, but I gave them a curt STOP IT! and they slunk off to the other room.

    At no other time would this ever happen. Only today.

    OMG myrosiedog, that IS embarrassing although I'm sure your minister was a pro about it. He's probably seen more embarrassing things than that, especially where children are concerned. You know they love to say the most inappropriate things at the most inopportune moments.
    Have you done your Green deed for the day?
