He's our BIG guy!

I would like to fondly make your acquaintances with Maximus Cornelius Watson-ok not really cornelius but maybe it will now become his middle name because it sounds good! Especially when he is running across the field as fast as he possibly can towards the dairy farm and I am out of breath behind him faintly yelling Maximus Cornelious Watson!! I like it- That could work! :) Maybe he would listen! Max is how he is known around our place- actually Super Max- he is our family guardian St Bernard/ Super Dog extraordinaire! He is the best most cuddly sweet loveable dog ever! So of course just like my kids- because he is one of them I want the best for him!
Here are some recipes from eco dog that are great and healthy for your best bud!

Lemon Flea Tonic:
thinly slice a whole lemon including the peel
add the lemon to 1 pint boiling water and let is steep over night
the next day add the solution to a spray bottle and apply as needed!

Herbal Flea powder:
combine these powdered herbs- eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender,fennel, yellow dock and pennyroyal. mix equal parts in shaker top jar. Brush your pets coat backward with your hand or a comb while sprinkling the powder onto the base of the hairs. pay special attnetion to the neck back and belly- put your pet outside so the little critters escape in your yard and not into your couch!

NO- my boy does not have fleas :) but so many flea powders are so toxic- use this instead!

Dogs often get ear mites you could put a drop or two of garlic or lavender oil on a cotton ball adn rub it around his ear and inside.

Problems with eyes- dab lavender on a cotton ball and swipe it across the eyes, or use a lavender hydrosol and spray it.

Quick Dog treats
1 cup wheat germ
2 small jars organic baby food\
2 tbs flax ground up
pre heat the oven to 350. grease a baking sheet. combine the ingredients and roll the mixture into balls. place them on the sheet, flatten with a fork and bake for 25 min- remove and cool.

I LOVE this pict of him- if only there were NO EYE GOOBERS!!! oh well- he is still so fantastic!!

Have a great day! Go take your dog on a walk!!!!
