Not too much to report.
I will tell you that I had to replace my rugs because my dog, Buddy, had diarrhea. I went to the pharmacy and asked where the medicine for that was. I asked if it would work on a 60 lb dog. The woman said that it was not a good idea, and perhaps it would make it worse.
She asked the head pharmacist what would work for a dog. He said rice.
I went online, and found a home remedy.
First: Don't feed the dog for 24 hours.
Second: mix Pedialite 50-50 with their water.
Third: feed the dog white rice.
They will definitely eat it after a 24 hour fast.
I went to Home Depot and got a roll of grey carpet (same as on my ceiling) for under twenty dollars. It was six feet wide by twenty feet long.
Here is a photo of one of the blackberry bushes co-existing with white and purple flowers.
