BEC & Tigger kicked off deer rifle season in their neck of the woods. Tigger always finds it amusing how BEC packs everything sugar-related, from candy bars to licorice while Tigger has all the jerky and trail mix. BEC claims she learned it from her father and regardless, rifle deer hunting season is a holiday in her book!
BEAR AWARE: Officials in areas prone to bears are warning people that your fall-themed decorations which include pumpkins and squash, can actually attract bears. Wildlife Officials say that the bears right now are eating as much as possible to fill up before going into hibernation for the winter.
101 Uses for WD-40: Pumpkins, Squash & Gourds. WD-40 can keep pumpkins fresh and pest-free by spraying them with WD-40 products. The spray’s invisible coat of protection makes it difficult for bugs to feast on the gourd. The scent of WD-40, with its citrus undertones and vanilla profile, also helps deter pests. Note – If you have dogs, WD-40 is not recommended to be used as the canine may lick and digest. Call your veterinarian if so happens.
Strength Training Over Cardio: A recent Stanford University study has revealed that strength training is more effective for burning fat and building muscle than cardio. Researchers had participants partake in a 9-month exercise routine. Those who did strength training three times a week had better progress than those who did cardio or a combination of both. So there’s a bit of proof that we all need to keep hunting, fishing, and packing in all that gear… it builds muscle while losing the fat!
DiGiorno, as in the frozen pizza, is offering a new Thanksgiving Pizza.

WHY COMFORT PETS DURING EUTHANASIA SAYING GOODBYE, PUTTING PETS DOWN
Whether it is a man’s best friend, your trusty hunting dog and companion, cow dog, or family pet; saying goodbye to a pet is hard. There is no way around it. Especially pets like dogs or cats; where they’ve entered an, even more, deeper connection as they typically almost always depend on you and do so for many years. They are family.
SHOULD PET OWNERS BE PRESENT FOR EUTHANISIA?
When the date is finally set, and the time has come to say goodbye. This moment is hard, emotionally, and every person struggles with it differently. Some feel it is just too rough and feel best dropping off their beloved pet with their trusted veterinarian for euthanasia. However there is another thought on this, and that is that it is even if one of the hardest things to do… saying goodbye to a pet, part of your family; it can be very beneficial and easier for the animal if you stay. Have a good visit with your trusted veterinarian about the euthanasia process. You will what to expect and learn how having you present will keep your dog or cat calm during the final goodbyes.
According to Union Lake Veterinary Hospital, “Choosing to stay with your pet during euthanasia is best because it alleviates their stress. Having you present reduces their anxiety and fear.” In a strange way, it is also closure for you as well, helping in the grief of… That final goodbye. Tears are normal, and expected, so embrace the emotions and remember the good times with your dog, cat, horse, or any other pet that has been a part of your family and will not be forgotten.
We (Tigger & BEC) are going thru this scenario this week. Hard as it is, our beloved Mojo, the Chihuahua, who has lived to the prime age of nearly 20, we must say goodbye. The holiday photos, the snuggles, and the laughs he’s given us and will always be the quietest chihuahua to walk the planet… Mojo – we love you and will always remember you.
