Something to think about!

THOUGHT YOU SHOULD BE AWARE! Although it says it was verified on snopes.com - snopes.com says that the information could not be verified due to its lack of contacts and contents. Although I do believe it is important to keep in mind. Just because it can't be verified doesn't mean for certain it isn't true.
Always be safe - wash your pets feet after they walk through chemicals whether it be outside or undried cleaning agents.
http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/swiffer.asp is the site you can find the information yourself regarding this forward. You can make your own judgements but it is still to be a matter of concern...at least at my home.

Subject Fw: SWIFTER WET JET...KILLS KIDS AND PETS!


THIS IS TRUE & VERIFIED ON SNOPES.COM http://snopes.com Recently someone had to have their 5 year old German Shepherd dog put down
due to liver failure. The dog was completely healthy until a few weeks ago,
so they had a necropsy done to see what the cause was. The liver levels were unbelievable, as if the dog had ingested poison of some kind. The dog was kept inside, and when he's outside, someone's with him, so the idea of him getting into something unknown was hard to believe.

My neighbor started going through all the items in the house. When he got to the Swiffer Wetjet, he noticed, in very tiny print, a warning which stated "may be harmful to small children and animals."

He called the company to ask what the contents of the cleaning agent are and
was astounded to find out that antifreeze is one of the ingredients (actually, he was told it's a compound which is one molecule away from antifreeze. Therefore , just by the dog walking on the floor cleaned with the solution, then licking its own paws, it ingested enough of the solution to destroy its liver. Soon after his dog's death, his housekeeper's two cats also died of liver failure. They both used the Swiffer Wetjet for quick cleanups on their floors. Necropsies weren't done on the cats, so they couldn't file a lawsuit, but he asked that we spread the word to as many people as possible they don't lose their animals.

This is equally harmful to babies and small children that play on the floor a lot and put their fingers in their mouths a lot.

PLEASE, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE BABIES, SMALL CHILDREN OR OWN A PET; PLEASE FORWARD THIS ON! YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANY CHILDREN OR PETS BUT SOME OF YOU HAVE
FRIENDS OR FAMILY WITH PETS AND ALSO FAMILIES W ITH GRANDCHILDREN AND GREAT
GRANDCHILDREN.

Puggle loves!

A Howlin' Howl-o-ween - Not in a good way :-(

October 31st 2009 11:42 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

I was so excited for the Howl-o-ween party that I got a little pea brained.

Pops came into the computer room to see me on top of the computer desk looking out the window to the backyard.

I thought maybe somebody would wanna come in that way and I'd be ready for them.

Well, Pops caught me on his computer desk with his precious keyboard and mouse hanging off the crowded and messy desk with the Dukester nestled close to the monitor pushing it ever closer to its destruction.

Pops took action.

He yelled at me and got me off of the desk and took me collar in fist to my crate. It was a sad night for the Dukester. I understand the meaning of Howl-o-ween now ‘cause I was a-barkin' and a wailin' to the sound of Ruby having all the fun. I knew peoples were coming to the house ‘cause I heard her infectious barking.

Not fair...Not Fair! I missed all of Howl-o-ween.

Pops took me outta the crate at 8 or 9pm when Momma was already at work. I have been whining ever since. Nobody came to my house after I came outta the crate even though I didn't be bad no more that night...except when I stepped on Pops' Sprained ankle but that was an accident. Pops even said it was after all his huffin', puffin' and sputterin' mean words at the whole world. He told me he really wanted to hit me for stepping on his sprained ankle, but he was just real angry 'cuza the pain. He knew I didn't mean it.

Pops has self control -just not with the words 'splodin' outta his mouth!

Today I learned 1st of all don't step near Pops after he sprains his ankle and 2nd if you wanna enjoy next years Howl-o-ween with the kiddies don't try to climb the furniture that's in Pops' computer room to try and get pre-show look!

Drum Roll Please!
I said Drum Roll Please!

::Starts Beating tail against door and wall::

That's better! Keep a close eye on the winners pages. You may see their Noun Hound Clues popping up soon enough!

The pups who guessed correctly in this Edition of the Noun Hound Game created by Balto are:

Abby
Prize

Annie Dog Poop
Prize

♥Austin♥
Prize

Bear
Prize

Hearth
Prize

Magdalana aka Maggie
Prize

Riley
Prize

Roscoe
Prize

♥ Sasha ♥
Prize

**Click on Name to visit my friend's page-look for Noun Hound Clues there also-and Click on "Prize" to see the special Tanuki Prizes**

If no prize button is available for a pup this means a photo was not available and another form prize was given.

There is a lot of good folk lore on this little guy. He is considered a trickster and a shapeshifter.

Here is a repeat of the clues for anyone interested:

1. I am a canine that lives in the wooded areas of Western Europe, Japan, Siberia, Manchuria, China, and Russia. I've been introduced into other countries for hunting purposes.

2. I look more like a fox or a raccoon than a dog and my brain is less developed than other canids.

3. We are omnivorous but don’t hunt large game because our teeth are very small in comparison to other canids.

4. In harsh winters we retreat to a burrow and sleep throughout the winter, almost like hibernating, living off our stored fat.

***EXTRA BONUS CLUE***

5. In the Mario Brothers games Mario turns into me by using a leaf power-up.


So concludes another exciting adventure of THE NOUN HOUND! ::Cool Fade Out Noise::

Well, Howdy Y'all.

I was in an up all night kinda mood and decided to do something rather cool.

I went through all my Noun Hound Editions and entered the prizes that the winning pups received.

So, if you wanna see some fun photos of you friends and mine come check them out.

Then Noun Hound game is tons of fun and now everyone can see how much fun I've been having making photos for all my pals.

Although it is a lot of work too.

I hope only good will come from this. I'd hate for anyone to become jealous over someone elses picture. I make sure Momma puts lots of time, thought, and effort into each and every picture. So, everyone enjoy!

Home Decorating

I got jealous of Saphira's decorating stories so I decided to try some myself.

Here is a picture of My Handy Work

What do you think? Not quite up to Saphira's technique but not bad for a first try.

::Takes Step back to admire handy work::

Not bad at all if I do say so myself.

Dad says I'm on a Roll. He must be proud!
-The Dukester

P.S. Okay, I really did it because they separated Ruby and me. She was behind the door. I love my Ruby and I want to be with her all the time.

Great News From Rosie's Mom's FaceBook Page:

So, the adventures of Rosie...she's safe at home with me, hungry and thirsty but otherwise fine. She's curled on my feet about to pass out. Somehow she made her way to Upper Arlington, got tired and sat down in someone's drive way. They called the UA AC, she came out and rescued her.


Sunny Lee had this on her page!

Yea!!!!!

Rosie is HOME!!!
