SPECIAL NEEDS FOR May and June 2012
Food: Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice 1 bag $30
(one bag feeds 6-8 dogs for a week or 1 dog for 6-8 weeks) (and yes, I still feed Diamond...email me if you want to know why :-)
Lumber: 4 x 4 posts, 2 x 4s for framing and plywood (lots of plywood), used or new, to build shelters from the sun. There is PLENTY of shade but it seems the dogs prefer to "hang out" in certain areas so I need some stable shade structures for them.
Shampoo: $4 a bottle, will wash 2-5 dogs. Dogs do get muddy and the Siberians and mixes especially do NOT like to be dirty.
Throw rugs/carpet remnants: $30 provides a warm soft place inside for the dogs to relax. I buy only those which can be shaken out and cleaned and reused so this is another great investment.
Detergent: $10 to keep dog bedding clean (and mine, since most of them are allowed to share furniture and bedding with me when it's their "turn").
Bleach: $5 to prevent spread of germs as different dogs are allowed in different parts of the house..
Dewormers: $5...this is per dog and varies but is vital this time of year. I usually deworm the dogs twice a year unless I notice problems. This keeps them healthy and free of parasites as long as I do it with ALL 18 dogs.
