dry dog food for dogs - Snapware 4014
Snapware 4014 22.8-Cup Jumbo Flip Top Rectangle Cereal Keeper
Our wondrously clear Rectangular Snapware
Containers hold kitchen staples like flour, sugar, rice, coffee, or tea
beautifully on the counter or in the pantry. Made of shatter-proof, Flexiglass
plastic, these containers won't stain or absorb odors. They're refrigerator and
freezer safe and are recommended for dry food storage only. The lid is the
outstanding feature of a Snapware Container. It's easy to open, has a wide
circumference to accommodate scoops, locks in the open position for
accident-free pouring, and has an airtight silicone seal to preserve food
freshness and flavor. In fact, the lid has a patented design that seals around
the silicone gasket from above and below to prevent any transfer of air or
moisture, either in or out of the canister. The result is a seal so complete,
potato chips left in a Snapware for year were as fresh as the day they came out
of the bag.
Slickrock drying out at Corona arch
I like the mood of this view of Corona Arch.
The brief snow storm has come and gone and the sandstone canyon walls are drying
out quickly. The last of the storm clouds are leaving the area and it is
quiet....and the landscape is beautiful. Good hike. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Utah Road Trip March 2012 Oldmantravels & Old Wrangler Last March, my friend
Ed and I, with his new Jeep Wrangler, made a 4,000 looping road trip through the
Four Corners area of the Southwest. We had a lot of fun on that trip so decided
to do a different version in March of 2012. We made plans that were highly
flexible depending on the weather we would encounter and the condition of hiking
trails and back country dirt "Jeep roads". We even had a "plan B" to head for
Joshua Tree and Death Valley, if the Utah weather didn't turned out like we
hoped. In the end, we were able to enjoy each and every day of our road trip in
the state of Utah and utilizing Green River, Utah as our primary "base camp".
Weather wasn't always the best for photography but it was fun capturing the
moment with photographs, both to share with others and of course to preserve the
memory of the fun times had on a road trip. Below is a day by day general
outline of where we traveled and what we did during this Utah Road Trip March
2012 (just in case you want to follow along): DAY ONE [Wednesday - 14 March
2012]: Ed left his house in Western Washington and picked me up in his Jeep
Wrangler at my house in Eastern Washington. We then drove the interstate through
rain and wind to Boise, Idaho. DAY TWO [Thursday - 15 March 2012]: We drove the
most direct and quickest route from Boise, Idaho to Green River, Utah where we
got rooms for three nights. We later added another three nights as the small
quiet town of Green River turned out to be just right as a quiet base camp for
our outdoor activities in the area. DAY THREE [Friday - 16 March 2012]: We
headed out early down highway 24 through Hanksville, then over to Capitol Reef
National Park. We forded a swollen Fremont River and took the scenic Cathedral
Valley loop in clockwise direction, putting over 50 miles of fun miles on back
country dirt roads, mostly within the boundary of Capitol Reef National Park. We
visited scenic overlooks like Jailhouse Rock and the various vista overlooks
along the way. The stop at the Temple of the Sun and the Moon formations was
well worth the time. We took a couple of short hikes to get better views of many
of the areas along this scenic loop route. Returning to highway 24 we drove west
into the heart of Capitol Reef NP and made the short hike up to Hickman Bridge.
Returning to the Jeep, we drove down to the visitors center and drove the
"scenic road" which dead ends in Capitol Gorge. The late afternoon and then dusk
light made for an excellent trip on this road. DAY FOUR [Saturday - 17 March
2012]: WE drove the "Eightmile Road" near La Sal Junction over to the Needles
overlook and Anticline overlook road junction. Stopped at Looking Glass arch
along the way (windy) and poked around a few of the "cowboy cave" structures,
carved out of and/or built into the sandstone formations in the area. We
scratched our heads in bemusement when we spotted the Rockland Ranch, a man made
"eye sore" on a large otherwise lovely sandstone formation known as Hatch Rock.
The "cave houses" are painted mostly bright loud colors with an obvious attempt
to "stand out" rather than "blend in". I haven't read the whole story yet but
seems the government granted a 50 year lease to some "alternative life" folks,
and so Hatch Rock is "their" home for now. The lease is for $6,500 a year and
the "homes" have been blasted into the side of Hatch Rock. The founder, Bob
Foster (with three or four wives and 38 children passed away in 2008 at age 82,
of cancer). The drive out to Anticline overlook was a pretty drive as we checked
out the Hatch Point campground along the way and enjoyed the views offered by
the loop around the rock formation at the Dave Minor overlook. From the
Anticline overlook you can see forever, including a Jeep trail following the
near bench far below. I would find out later that that winding dirt road can be
taken all the way from Moab to the Needles portion of Canyonlands National Park
(and all day endeavor). The Colorado River is seen from this viewpoint as are
the large potash ponds and the waterways that drain from them to the Colorado
River below. In all it seems a bit too much "man made" intrusion on the
landscape to completely enjoy the fabulous view. After Anticline we returned to
the Needles Overlook which we both agreed would be a wonderful place to catch a
sunrise (so we agreed to return to it if we caught some good weather later on).
After the Needles Overlook we returned to the highway and made out way into the
Needles district o
Harley October 2000 - April 2007
Damn the Iams dog food. Harley was always
perfectly healthy. He had an ear infection and didn't want to eat his dry dog
food, so I started feeding him canned Iams food (about 2 weeks worth). Four days
after he received an antibiodic for his ear infection, he strated having
seizures. He was sick and started having accidents in the house. I took him back
to the vet. I didn't even consider the dog food. The vet questioned me about it.
It was too late to test for poisons, since I quit feeding him the food. She said
he had all the symptoms. He started showing signs of neurological damage. We
don't know if it was brain damage. Could he have had a tumor we didn't know
about until then? I couldn't afford an MRI. If it was a tumor, they couldn't do
anything for him. He had several visits to the vet. They kept giving him shots
to shrink swelling in the brain and steroids. He had many bad days and even more
very bad days. I refused to give up hope. After all, they said he wouldn't live
when he was a puppy and had Parvo. There were days when he couldn't hold his
head up. I fed him Insure for dogs with a dropper on those days. His last day,
he was doing so well. He was walking around. He could sit up and stand all by
himself. He ate two bowls of dog food and drank two bowls of water without any
help. He wanted to go outside. It was a warm day and I left him outside while I
went to a funeral in Dayton. I received the call from my daughter on my way
home. She found him in the garden dead. I have never loved an animal so much. I
have never spent so much money on all my animals put together. I had to pay $90
at the dog pound and sign my life away to get him. His 1st vet visit was $500.
Yearly vacinations, worming etc. $??? Who knows how much I spent on treats and
dog food. $800+ on his final vet bills. For a mutt, he was the best dog I ever
had. He was stolen three times and I had to get the police to get him back.
Everyone said how beautiful he was. Thankfully I have many pictures of him and
many great memories.
