One problem I've faced with Stormie's Fanconi is the amount of meds he takes everyday and trying to keep them organized so I'm not counting pills twice a day. Currently, I'm sorting and counting pills once a week and putting them into Day Of The Week (w/ AM and PM sides) pill holders. Any other suggestions or ideas for med storage/sorting any easier/convenient?
Everytime I walk outside I am very wary now. I checked into trap and relocation for the bear, but the PA Game Commision won't do anything unless the bear is doing actual physical damage to your property (ie: house siding being torn off etc.). Apparently nearly scaring the pants off a person doesn't count for much! lol! I also ordered the bear pepper spray - better safe than sorry!
Oh and Stormie? He still thinks the bear is going to come back so he can have a go at him! lol! He's such a little nutter - but I know he'd do his best to protect his Momma!
I am still rather shaken by the events of this afternoon. I had spent the majority of the day outside with the Mallard ducklings and weeding in the gardens and such. The seasonal neighbors are up, so my rural neighborhood is actually louder than it typically is. Imagine my surprise when I took a break to bring Stormie out to pee at around 6:00 PM, and as I rounded the corner of the house I saw a black bear walking through my side yard along the canal. OH! I panicked! Stormie's hackles went up immediately, and he doesn't back down from any challenge - he can be a brute and is stubborn as the day is long. I stared at the bear, the bear looked at us, and in the next moment as I bent to pick up Stormie (who was going WILD and whining and grunting!) and get inside, the bear cut through the weeds, across the canal, and into the woods along the river, where I heard from neighbors that he swam across and made his way up the opposite mountain. Storm was going NUTS in my arms wanting to get to this creature, and my heart was pounding! There have been many bear sightings in my area before, but this is a first time for me in broad daylight and with so much commotion going on! I just wish I'd had a camera with me and a better presence of mind! I was more than a little addle-brained!
I love the Halo company in general. I use their Dream Coat for Nik and Stormie in the winter time - it works brilliantly for dry, winter skin. I also use Halo's Spot's Stew canned food on occasion in addition to EVO, Evangers, Cal. Natural, Weruva, and Merricks cans. The pups love it!
Oh, and the ear cleaner is great, too!
