We moved to a Native American reservation 15 years ago where we were introduced to the benefits of Plantain, a plant that grows locally in the area where Mohawks have been living for generations. They told me about that plant their mother would cure their headaches with when applied on the forehead, and these leaves were also used to heal wounds. We tried it on a leg wound and it really works!

That plant has been known for its historical medicinal use as a wound healer, snakebite remedy, also works for eczema, burn, rashes, or sunburn. It grows all over our yard so we started infusing organic olive oil with it to use on our Spaw Wax.

The scientific name for this plant is PLANTAGO MAJOR ROSULARIS, it has big green leaves that the locals call "pig ears"...

This paw balm is made with organic, vegan, natural butters and oils with no chemicals or artificial ingredients which heals, moisturizes and nourishes the skin.

It is ideal for dry, chapped, rough paws, elbows and noses; also great for peeling and cracked paws.


In the Winter it protects paws from salt and ice accumulation between the toes; it provides a better grip on slippery ice.


In the Summer it protects from hot surfaces such as pavement, concrete, etc. and it prevents fleas and ticks from latching on in between the toes.

Works great on rough elbows, chapped human hands, heels and knees as well.

Since these ingredients are 100% chemical-free they will not harm your dog even if he licks it.

I tried this absorbent towel for doggies on my baby Max, who is part Akita and whose undercoat takes a long time to dry. When I opened the package it was weird because the towel felt wet. When I read the instructions it seemed strange but once I tried it I realized it really works!  It was raining hard and Baby Max came in from outside: I though what a wonderful timing to try and dry him faster! Works great on wet and muddy paws too.

Well, it worked! That material absorbed almost all of the water and his fur dried faster. You have to keep it wet and stored in the packaging it came in. You can wash it in the washing machine but you have to make sure it stays wet for it to work.

Here is a list this company made about ways to help your dog with an itch.

Part of this article is reblogged from:  https://www.prevention.com/life/a19792969/cbd-oil-benefits-side-effects/

What is CBD oil, exactly? CBD oil is typically extracted from the resin glands on cannabis (marijuana) buds and flowers. It can also be extracted from hemp, which is an industrial, fibrous form of cannabis that has small buds and a tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, concentration of 0.3% or less (THC is the chemical compound that’s responsible for making people high). It's usually diluted with another type of oil, like MCT oil.

So, what’s the deal with CBD oil?

No, CBD oil really won’t get you stoned

There are more than 80 active cannabinoid chemicals in marijuana, and their effects on us stem from their interactions with specific receptors in our bodies. THC is the main psych...

...the fence saga continued... the inevitable happened: they dug under !

Our next move: place cement patio stones along the fence.

We poured cement on that big hole. You should see their face when they try to dig now... haha

After a successful escape digging under the gate, those garden cement tiles did the job.

Snowball learned how to lift the "lock" up and escape, so Andy added the lower one.

The dog pen view from inside. 10 X 24, with a roof. They were digging so I filled the holes with rocks. The floor is covered with pine chips that I replace regularly.

I am happy to report that there were NO ESCAPES since.

Photo 1 - Max found a way to go over the fence (see our previous post) so I doubled the fence by adding another one on top and attaching lumber to the metallic posts... with tie rods (again). I knitted them together with more tie rods. 

Photo 2 - This side of the yard was too appealing to Max; he was climbing the palettes and then applying his fence-bending technique to the second layer so I screwed plywood on top of the whole thing.  Ugly but efficient.(2009)

Photo 3  - ...after two years it turned into a colorless evil-looking thing and the wind knocked it over.  

Photo 4 and 5  - Andy build a gate. Max continued to challenge us by making a hole at the bottom of the wire fence, or sliding himself under it or sliding under the shed. One time he was stuck under there...

For those who live in the country and believe their dogs need a safe place to play outside, I am sharing the trials and errors of building a fence for a couple of escape artists who have put me to the challenge many times. 

Why a fence you would say?  Security is the #1 reason.  Your dog will not get in trouble for roaming around digging in garbage, trying to mate with the next female in heat and getting shot or poisoned by neighbors.  Your dog will be safe from mean stray dogs or wild life if you live near the forest, and safe from catching diseases from strays. (I had to deworm my puppy THREE TIMES when I did not have a fence put up and I tied her out for a few hours.) Your fence will deter dog thieves if your dog is friendly.  Personally I doubt my dogs will ever disappear...

A lot of our customers have been asking for grain-free treats either because their vet recommended a grain-free diet, or their dog has an allergic reaction to wheat and other grains, or as a precaution.  But what is the difference between gluten-free and grain-free?

Here are extracts of articles that explains it well:

"Let’s start by discussing the difference between a grain-free and a gluten -free diet. Grain-free dog foods are, as the name implies, diets that do not contain grain. Gluten-free dog food, on the other hand, may or may not contain grain as an ingredient. Gluten is the protein that is found in specific types of grain, namely Wheat, Barley, and Rye. Gluten-free dog food is, of course, free of these proteins. However, not all grains contain gluten; therefore, glute...

This is something that worked for my two dogs.  When I adopted my youngest, he was scratching and itching and so did his nine siblings; the Vet did a skin scraping and nothing showed; it was a real mystery.  He tried different medications that did not work.  Then my other dog started having the same symptoms so I began to Google stuff and I found that wonderful solution that WORKED on both my dogs and the other siblings.

Mange is a serious parasitic skin condition caused by tiny mites that bury beneath the skin. These mites cause painful sores, hair loss, and incessant itching and scratching. If left untreated, mange can cause death. Thankfully, borax is an effective natural remedy for mange. Countless dogs a...
