Cell Phone Woes

My not-so-sweet-fur-baby, Daisy chewed the end off of the charger for my phone a couple of weeks ago.  I ordered a new one from Amazon.  It was the wrong one.  So, I ordered a second one.  It came today and guess what!  Yep, the exact same charger as the first one.  I am about ready to pull my hair out or scream one.  I don't know what else I can do. I guess I will try to take it to Fred's or the Dollar store and see if they might have one that will work.

Daisy is still not housebroken.  She poops wherever she happens to be and shows no remorse when I am cleaning it up.  Most of the time she will pee on the pad or outside.  Why she won't poop is beyond frustrating me.

Trying also to break her of scratching me to get my attention or when she wants to play.  I have tried ignoring her and moving away and she just comes back harder.  I have swatted her and got nowhere.  Now, I am trying sending her to her room.  I have e mailed Bro. Wayne for advice since he has raised Jack Russell/Rat Terriers.  I thought maybe he would have some words of wisdom.

Another one of my won books from came today.  Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan  The blurb about sounded interesting so I entered to win an advanced copy.  Right now I am reading Dancing Dogs by Jon Katz.  It is another advanced read copy that I won.  It's a pretty good collection of short stories about dogs.

I am enjoying discovering new and new-to-me authors via

Daisy is sitting in my lap now.  Hard to believe how much she has grown since I adopted her.  She will be 4 months old tomorrow.  Wow!

Daisy's 2nd Visit With Dr. Bob

So, yesterday was Daisy's second visit with Dr. Bob.  She did much better this time.  She only whimpered a little when he got a stool sample and then again once when he was trimming her nails.  She 2 shots and will go back in 3 weeks for another shot.  She is up to 9.6 #'s and is doing great.  The ringworm is almost gone.  But, Dr. Bob did say to keep treating her for it.  Got tickled at Dr. Bob misunderstanding me about the shampoo he gave me to use on Daisy.  I asked him if he had ever used it himself meaning on an animal.  He thought I meant had he ever bathed or shampooed himself with it.  :D  I cleared it up quickly and told him about finding out the hard way that it doesn't really lather much.  I used way too much and nearly never got it all rinsed out.  To make it worse, Daisy's coat seems to hold the soap.  She did better with her bath last time, though.  She only got impatient when it was taking too long to get the soap off of her.  I will have to remember to not use as much next time.

Gave her the heart-worm pill yesterday.  So glad she took it w/o a fight.  She just crunched it up like it was treat.  Glad the makers of it made it tasty to dogs!  Will find out how expensive they are when I take her in next time.  That one was free.  It is probably going to be high $ because it takes care of all of it; fleas, ticks, worms of all kinds.  I may have to see if Dr. Bob will sell me one a month.  Oh well, I will worry about it later.
