Things I Have Learned .....

......about animals!
  • Don't try to figure out 'why', just figure out how to fix it or make it better.
  • A kitten will find the one spot not covered in newspaper to have an accident
  • Don't treasure anything in your home if you plan to have it sitting out when you bring a puppy home
  • A dog can and will use the potty anywhere in the home if you tick them off. aka, my pillow :(
  • Feces, in any form, is DIS-GUST-ING....unless it comes from one of my horses ;)
  • Monkey See, Monkey Do
  • Horses will also leaving you wondering, panicing.....wondering.......
  • Cats rule the roost - really. They do.
  • Don't under estimate what your dog might eat if you aren't looking. aka, socks...tube socks
  • Hairballs - enough said
  • Although thought to be loners, cats sometimes need more attention that your husband
  • If they don't like the hay you give them [the horses], they just dump off a load on it. Problem solved.
  • Birds will dive bomb me when I walk into the barn because they know it freaks me out

Ok, so some of this is not any kind of new revelation to me! But none the less......
