CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace

“I never give my 3 pups rawhide; am very careful about that.” says Christine Pace, owner of  2-year-old Pomeranian “Rockefeller”.  “Some safe chews are gone in the blink of an eye!  The kind Rocky chews on makes it look as though he’s smokin’ his favorite cigar.  It lasts so long that he gets tired of it after a week or so.”  Christine says she smears “just a dab” of peanut butter on it then, wraps it tightly and puts it in her freezer.  In 2-3 weeks she’ll pull it back out and, when slightly thawed (but still chilled), and gives it back to one of her pups.  It’s like a brand-new treat to them and the cold makes it more enjoyable!  She suggests trying it with teething puppies too.


AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young




In this household and community, we are big on recycling everything we can, maybe to extremes.  I just learned on this site that I am putting stuff in the recycle bins that wasn’t meant to be recyclable.  For example:  Do not recycle any batteries (car, lithium, etc.), ceramic items, clothing or textiles, diapers disposable, cups (plastic and paper), electronics, food-tainted items, household glass, medical waste, hazardous waste, plastic bags/wrap, scrap metal/wood, shredded paper, Styrofoam/peanuts, tires, toys, cords, hoses, wires, etc.


Household glass is mentioned but I don’t know what is considered household unless they mean dishes and drinking glasses, light bulbs, etc.  I am guilty of throwing plastic cups in the recycle bin.  My bad, but now I know better.


Recycling saves you money as well.  Unless you hire someone to haul your trash, we rural dwellers have to take it to the local landfill site and pay $3.00 per 33-gal size bag.  That’s a lot of bags if you are filling them with plastic cartons and cans.
