Baxter 16+ Years Old
October 14th, 2015 4:13 pm
This first photo is of Baxter (West Highland White Terrier) and Soda Pop (Miniture Schnauzer) from a few years ago. I lost a lot of old photos after a move some years ago.
 
 
Soda Pop had a heart attack in Decdmber 2014 and passed away. SHe was a really fun little dog, very happy and cuddly.
 
This next photo is of Baxter at the off-leash dog park, in the early part of his 16th year.
 


He loved all the neat smells at the dog park. The is the last time I took him to the park because he began to freak out when I tried to get him into the car. Too many vet visits I think. So I only made him go into the car when we had to go to the vets.
 
Baxter is now 16 years and 7 months. Still a good dog. However, his age has been getting the better of him over the past few months. .....
 
Update:. Baxter passed away on October 16, 2015 at approximately 3pm.​ You were a wonderful dog and I am so glad we had these years together. You were...
Daisy Lounging Around The House
October 8th, 2015 3:25 pm
Daisy woke me up at about 4am and wanted to play. I was not feeling well and tried to ignor her, but she was persistant and so funny, that I finally gave in and we played. In this photo she decided to lounge on the couch for a bit, but as soon as I started to take her photo, she was up and ready for more.
 
 
 
 
Why I Now Shop At Clayton Critters For All My Pet Needs!
October 7th, 2015 5:30 pm

I had been shopping at a well known local pet store for my pet needs for some time when I began to notice some problems. Then one day things really began to come to the forfront.

I wanted to try the Cool Dog Joint formula (also known as Liquid-Vet™ Joint Formulas) for one of my dogs. I went to (at that time my usual pet store) and purchased the trial (8oz). The cost was about $11.00 (can't recall the exact price at this time). I didn't notice the 'Buy One Get One Free' noted right on the Cool Dog Joint formula bottle until a day or two later. So when I went back to the store, the free one was not honored. I did like the results my dog got from the product, and so later purchased the large size of the Cool Dog Joint formula .

My older dog is now well into his 16th year and has walking problems. I was not sure if it was all related to age or if the Cool Dog Joint Formula might help him, but sure wanted to try it.

I went to 2 local pet stores (one that I had been shoppin...

Canadian Tire
July 21st, 2015 9:27 am

My rear turn signal light had gone out on my car. I thought that I woul just go to Canadian Tire and have them put one in for me. I figured how much can that be!

Well the light bulb was $4.99 for two bulbs. But the labour was $35.40. With tax the bill was $45.34. I thought this was rather expensive for just putting a light bulb in but was not sure if I could do this myself, so I had them go ahead and put it in. I asked how long it would take and they said not long at all. well their not long at all and my understanding of not long at all sure was different.

It took about 45 minutes. At least that was when I finally went in and asked how much longer it would be. I was then told that they were finished and she was just completing the paperwork. Another ten minutes went by and she had a handful of papers and proceeded to tell me that there were other major problems with my car.

Although I was never asked if I wanted anything else checked out or an estimate for anything, they went ah...

Dog Food
July 20th, 2015 7:10 pm
Every so often I look into the different dog foods, just to make sure what I am feeding Daisy is still the best I can get for her. I feed her Acana Lamb & Okanagan Apple.

I was checking online for reviews and came across one site that has done their own product review. I thought that how they did this may be of interest to others so am posting the link below.

The Best Dog Food - It's All About Quality Ingredients - The Best Food For a Safe and Healthy Dog

Acana scores fairly good according to their product review. After checking a few other reviews and product ingredients I have come to the conclusion that Acana is still a goof dog food for Daisy.

Let me know your thoughts on dog foods. Always interested in this subject.
