Genius ideas

1. Home-stuffed Holey Ball! - I got this idea from 38 Brilliant Hacks for Dog Owners  (Also see #30!!!!)

 8. For a dog who loves to tear apart stuffed animals, make a durable activity ball with a Hol-ee rubber ball, scraps of fabric, and treats.

I may never need to buy plush/stuffed toys ever again. I stuffed this holey ball with scrappy fabric from old dismembered plush toys. It took Boogie 20-30 seconds to unstuff it. But oh it was so much fun! And we can do this over and over again!

Just received a handy tip from Melita on Facebook: “Maybe knot some of the scraps onto the ball?”

2. “Bow Wow Barrier” Retractable gate. A big thank you to the lady whose name I don’t remember (at Grisha’s L.A. BAT seminar) who told me about this local company. There is also a UK company that makes a similar product but international shipping costs more than the gate itself. Last week I ordered the Bow Wow Barrier gate and today, Nathan helped install it.  If you LIKE  Retract-A-Gate on Facebook  you get a discount coupon. This is a genius concept and is way less cumbersome and aesthetically-intrusive than a regular baby gate. The tough mesh fabric is see-through from the inside (good for Boogie) and unrolls when you open the door. The “gate” can also be unclipped from the door whenever you want. Will be VERY USEFUL when mail delivery people bring packages that I have to sign for, and when visitors arrive!  *Boogie isn’t the kind of dog to run away, but he does always rush to the door to greet.

    How is Boogie’s itching dilemma going? I have a BT/Pug mix and she has the EXACT same condition and the vets are prescribing the exact same meds you are. She is currently on Prednisolone and it helps but as soon as she gets off it, and it’s warm, back to the itching. Definitely seasonal here too as soon as fall and winter come around she is totally fine.
