Adopted Yorkie Pees in the House

December 18, 20180 found this helpful

We found out that our rescue had a kidney stone that was approximately 3.0cm. He is doing much better with the peeing in the house and letting us know when he really needs to go out. We now have the stress anxiety issue that we are working on. He is doing much better at night with sleeping in the crate. It is the am while we are working that he cries and howles in the crate for about an hour or so before he calms down. We just purchased the Adaptil calming collar, hope this may help.

If you're vegan but still want "shrimp," try vegan konjac shrimp. Konjac is a flavorless yam that's been called a miracle food. The food made from it are gelatinous, fat and carb-free, and very low in calories. A whole bag of konjac pasta, for example, is about 40 calories. And it has many proven health benefits from improving diabetes, to lowering cholesterol (its high in fiber) to suppressing appetite. Some konjac pasta has tofu powder in it, which makes it look and taste more like real pasta. Otherwise, it resembles translucent rice noodles. The major complaint from some is that it's too chewy and rubbery to resemble real pasta. But that texture is exactly why it makes a good shrimp substitute. Asians have also used konjac to make squid, clam, scallop, etc substitutes -- basically, anything chewy.

Your daughter is very young and probably will not know that Christmas day is not just "another day" in her young life but it is still nice for her to receive a special gift.

Your local churches may be your only hope this late in the year but if you are near any of the church thrift centers they will probably let you pick out a toy or doll that is appropriate for a one year old. Maybe a nice sweater?

Salvation Army rarely turns anyone away that is truly in need so that is a good place to start.

Of course, this all depends on whether you have transportation to check out these places.

If you will be alone at Christmas why not find out where the food/soup kitchens are having their Christmas dinner and join the crowd (that is if you are physically fit to travel there). Be sure to keep yourself and your baby away from anyone that appears to be sick as that is paramount at this time of year.

Hope your Christmas turns out to be a "special" day for you and your baby.

Identifying a Porcelain Doll

She is lovely and looks quite old.

The make is very blurry so I can't see it.

Her face is also dark in the photos.

Perhaps if you can get a few clearer photos, you can post them back here and also try some of the forums that specialize in old dolls. This is one i have wanted to try, but haven't gotten around to yet:

How tall is she? Do the clothes look hand stitched? Does the hair feel real?

She is very lovely! I will keep searching, and if you find something sooner, please post back what you learn.

Once you know who she is, if you need help valuing her, I can take a stab at it for you!

Getting Dog Urine Stains Out of Carpet

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

If the carpet is not white, try using a few drops of plain Dawn dish soap in lukewarm water and using a white rag (like an old tee shirt) soak the rag in the Dawn water mix, wring it out gently rub at the stain...you should see it coming up on to the white rag. Start in a small place just to make sure it doesn't also pull the carpet dye with it.

This should work on the spot, but it does not neutralize the smell though...that you will need one of the enzyme products from a pet store or big box store.

I also suggest doing what we do when our fur boy regresses. We put something (like a footstool or magazine rack) over the spot to deter him from using it again. Eventually we can move the covering...just need a little time (and the enzyme to neutralize) so that both break the memory cycle of the spot.

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

You will need a product that is referred to as an "enzyme cleaner".
These cleaners are sold at all big box stores (Walmart, Target, Lowe's, pet stores, etc.) as well as online:

www.amazon.com/.../B00J4Z5B24?tag=thrif06-20

There are many different brands but be sure it is an enzyme cleaner.

It is most important to use this type cleaner and do it quickly as vinegar will help but not remove the odor and the puppy will keep going to the same (or near by) places and it will be much more difficult to train him to not wet on the carpet.

Also, stains may not come out if left for a long period of time.

Nature's Miracle is a great product that gets both stains and odors out. Get it at any pet supply store or Amazon.

It is very difficult to find one specific volume but you can create an sign in (free) at Abe's Books and place it on your wanted list on their site.

This site sells a lot of books and especially encyclopedias so someone may have this volume and they all read the wanted ads.
This is not the only site but it may be your best shot at finding one volume.

Sets on eBay (1950) are selling for $60-$200 plus shipping but occasionally they will have sellers listing single volumes. You can click on at "advance" near the top of the listings and follow instructions to be notified if anyone lists one of these volume. Sometimes it is difficult to pin down an exact match so you may get more "notices" than you want but you always cancel the request.

Fixing Fudge

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

For what it is worth I am going to share what I learned today. I came on this site trying to find out how to NOT make gritty fudge. After reading several suggestions I changed several factors in how I made a batch today vs how I made it yesterday. Today's batch was the absolute best fudge I have ever made. I'm not 100% sure which of these changes made the difference but I will share all of them.
I always use the recipe on the back of the marshmallow jar so this is about that recipe.
1. I barely melted the butter and evaporated milk on low just until it was liquid. I tilted the pan so that the butter would grease the pan about 1/2 inch higher than the melted butter level. Then I pulled it off the heat and slowly (very slowly) poured the sugar into the middle of the melted butter. One cup at a time wetting it throughly before adding the next. After all the sugar was mixed in, I washed my wooden spoon and dried it, making sure to get any crystals completely off. There were no crystals on the sides of the pan at all.
2. I used a heavier 3qt saucepan than the revere ware one from yesterday.
3. I used a digital thermometer and pulled it based on 234 degrees rather than guessing the rolling boil and timing it.
4. When I stirred it I did not stir in a round motion around the pot. I stirred outward to inward, mixing everything toward the center and only a couple times slowly in a circular motion just so it didn't burn.
I think the biggest difference was wetting all the sugar in the melted butter. I hope this helps others to make non gritty fudge.

One large container of Swiss Miss from Sam's and I had a little mix left over from making 4 gallons. Came out perfect! Cambro kept it hot all day. Made at 9am. Sat outside in rain with temperatures in high 30's for 5 hours for 50+ person football marching band. Still on warmer side when I emptied at 4pm. Hope this helps someone!

Removing Burnt Potholder from Bottom of Oven

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

I'm not sure that I would turn my oven on if part of a potholder is still in the bottom. But you may need to turn it on to loosen the cloth. Maybe turn it on to 150/200 degrees for a few minutes before you start your cleaning process.

Some people use plain white vinegar to start. Pour it on and close the door; wait at least 30 minutes or more. Check to see if it is working. If not, pour a little more and wait again.

If this does not work you might want to opt for stronger stuff.

Do NOT use ammonia if you have used any other cleaner.

I have always had success with using ammonia to clean my over and I believe it would loosen up the burnt potholder as well. The kitchen should be well ventilated and wear gloves if possible. Try not to breath the ammonia scent while pouring.

Try pouring some ammonia on the potholder and close the door; leave for a while and see if it has loosened (use a flat spatula or even an old CC). If not loose; wait a while longer or overnight if possible.

Velvet Pants Transferred Color While Wearing

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

Red is the very worst color for transferring dye to anything it touches (and sometimes it does this forever). You may have to find a black or even red shirt to wear with your red pants. It seems that velvet/velveteen is the worst type of material for this also - the color seems to be permanent but still rubs off.

It sounds like Judy's suggestion might work (and not remove the color from your emblem) but if not, you might want to try a Color Run Remover as this should not harm the other colors in your tee.

This is NOT the same as Color Remover or Color Grabber so be sure to read everything on the package.
Most large stores carry this but it can be found online also.

Prognosis for a Puppy with Parvo

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

I hope your pup is doing well.
It is not uncommon for a pup with Parvo to be weak and lethargic but any change in stools should be a sign to call the vet.

Maybe some reading on Parvo would help you with taking care of him.
He is very young.
Most important - Just be sure he gets plenty of fluids - did the vet tell you about giving fluids or specify any kind (as well as water)?
Many vets recommend Gatorade but he HAS to drink even if by eye dropper. Try to get him to drink every 10-15 minutes.

This is a very good article.

Conditioning the Water for a Turtle

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

Hi - I hope you found water conditioner for your turtle but maybe you would like to read what some of the experts say about conditioning the water. Here is one comment:

"This is a more expensive, but safer option for a sensitive turtle. Conditioner isn't necessary for distilled and filtered water since it shouldn't contain chlorine or any other additives found in tap water. Also, PH will be at the neutral 7.0. You can buy distilled water at any grocery store."

PetSmart carries water conditioners if you are using tap water but other pet stores and some larger grocery stores also carry conditioners. The label on the bottle should tell if it safe for turtles.

I would like to mention that it is critical for anyone handling turtles to be VERY sure to wash their hands thoroughly after handling the turtle as almost all turtles have salmonella. Here is a link telling all about this:

www.thesprucepets.com/pet-turtles-and-salmonella-1239427

Here are a couple of links if you would like to read more about water treatments.

From Frozen Tender Roast

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

I tried this recipe last night. Bar None, this was the most fantastic roast that I've ever made. I used a bread-and-butter roast and put it in a casserole dish sort of like a dutch oven. Along with carrots onions potatoes and I used all beef broth instead of the water. Meaning I added extra beef broth. Also I used a bunch of spices and Seasonings the herbs being from my garden so they were fresh in there as well I put it in the oven for 4 hours and voila. It came out better than anything I've ever cooked in the way of a roast. I'm not sure why others had problems with it but I had absolutely no problems and I did cover it.

December 17, 20180 found this helpful

I have tried cooking merliton a couple of times in the past following similar directions and thought I was doing something wrong, they would never get tender. This week I finally had success and my casserole came out wonderfully. Im glad I hadnt seen this recipe before doing so because it took 5 hours of boiling at medium- high heat for them to get tender!

Cleaning Up Dog Pee on Floors

December 16, 20180 found this helpful

Before doing anything else, if the area is still wet, be sure to blot the urine stain with a clean towel. You can also use paper towels to help absorb any remaining urine.

To prevent further absorption, the faster you do this, the better. If you have access to any kind of shop-vac, use it to extract any remaining urine. If you dont have this tool, proceed to the next step.

Take one-quarter teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent and mix it with one cup of warm water. Be sure to specifically use this kind, not laundry detergent or dish soap; these may contain bleach or lanolin. If you have a spray bottle, pour the solution into it. Spray the urine stain, aiming directly onto the carpet. If you can extract the solution from the carpet using a shop-vac, this is a good next step.

Otherwise, you can use a cotton cloth or paper towels after the solution has set into the stain. After rinsing the area with warm water, repeat steps 1-5, as long as youre seeing the urine stain gradually fade. Last, take two tablespoons of ammonia and mix into a cup of water. Rinse and repeat until the stain has disappeared.

What is the Best Way to Clean Pet Hair from Wood Floors?

December 16, 20180 found this helpful

I would love to use a Roomba to keep the hair bunnies from overpopulating my floors from my shelties, but after trying one, I don't think I could stand so much laughter. My shelties would not stop trying to herd it and the antics were hilarious.
