The Thunderleash-Help Stop Leash Pulling

      Lets face it those wonderful dogs we have all start out as crazy puppies. We were really hit hard by the crazy bug with our dog Sparky. As some may remember he is our dog that barely survived a horrible battle with Parvo, it left him confined to the house for 4 of the 13 months we had him. While in the back yard he runs and plays like a crazy little monkey and he is a great dog, but now that he is spending more time out in public it is a challenge and a half with him. He has a strange fear of people no matter the age so if he isn't barking he is choking himself trying to pull away.
This is how we choke ourself walking :/
      You may remember a while back I did a review for a product called the ThunderShirt, if you don't remember it you can read it HERE. Recently I was contacted by the makers of the ThunderShirt to see if I would like to try out a new product called the ThunderLeash, so with Sparky in mind of course I said yes. When it arrived all the other dogs were eager to try it out, Sparky not so much.lol But after about a week he didn't seem to mind me putting it on him any more, and he even began walking a little better on the leash.
So nice not to choke yourself :)
      Now don't get me wrong this was not an instant fix. The first 3 days every time he would pull he would turn around and attack the leash haha, it was funny. It was not hurting him I made sure it wasn't pinching, he just didn't like it. He did learn not to pull though when wearing this leash. I tried going back to using it as just a leash not as a No Pull leash and he is not yet ready for that. Luckily the Thunder Leash is really easy to use, I just wrap it around and fish it into the little hook and we are ready for our walk. If he does decide to pull now it does not choke him either, which is obviously a great thing. I have never been disappointed with products from this great company. I just noticed another product the ThunderSweater which I will have to pick up for my crazy Koda before winter :)
      If you would like to pick up a ThunderLeash or any Thunder products you can do so at their website HERE.

I like it! This would be good for my doggies
I had to chuckle when you said this is how you choke yourself. I can remember when we had dogs they were always choking themselves. This looks like a decent leash and I will tell my sister about it. Thanks.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
