DIY Plywood Flooring

DIY Plywood Flooring is a easy way to make a room beautiful. Plywood is so much cheaper than vinyl, designer planks or actual hardwood. Having the plywood floors is cheaper not the easy way out. This is work, hard work. Get down and get dirty work. Simple, pretty much, back breaking of course. My husband has been a trooper and happy once the work has been done. I had my two bathroom priced for vinyl floors and was told it would be over a thousand for those rooms. I almost died. I had just checked out of Lowes for just about all my floors for less than $1,200.00. So for vinyl, well over thousand for bathrooms we decided we would do plywood in the bathrooms also. I am not sure of the exact dollar amount we have spent on this project but it has been the cheaper way to go with the floors.

Genetic Testing Dogs

We have recently decided to start breeding Labradors. As you all know, we have four Labradors and genetic testing is important when you breed. You want to produce the best of the best when breeding puppies. You do not want to bring in puppies that will have life long health problems. Genetic testing dogs will help eliminate any future issues for puppies. When selling puppies, you want to insure your potential buyers that you have taken the steps to provide them with healthy puppies .

Even with genetic testing you can always have some sort of issues. Lets take Berkeley for an example, he had to have his salivary gland removed. This is not something that we would have known by a genetics test. Berkeley also has Hemorrohagic Gastroenteritis. We have extensive medical bills with Berkeley.  We have been debating on getting pet insurance , if you have someone to recommend please let me know in the comments below.

 

Your dog deserves the best. Making informed decisions about your dog’s health is vital to its happy life now and in the future. Canine HealthCheck is not a breed identification test, but an easy at-home test that screens your dog’s DNA for a variety of genetic mutations causing inherited diseases and traits. Knowing your breed is only a small part of the story. Knowing your dog’s genetic health risk will allow you to:Care for those diseases that are treatable. Prepare for a pet emergency Predict future medical problems, saving costly veterinarian diagnostic workups What is Canine HealthCheck? The Canine HealthCheck is a screen of more than 150 genes that cause diseases or traits in dogs. It is easily collected in the comfort of your home – no veterinarian required! A 30 second swab of your dog’s cheek is sent to our laboratory where we screen the DNA to discover its genetic health status. High Capability: Screens more than 150 genetic mutations causing inherited diseases and traits Accessible: Results are displayed in your secure online account in 7-10 days upon sample receipt. They can be printed or downloaded. Customized: Sort your results based on breed, organ system, symptoms, and more Smart: Provides more useful information than a breed identification test – affected and carrier status provided for disease.

Paw Print Genetics has a breeder profile and you can check out my results on Berkeley and Bailey. You can click their names and you will get the results.

Life With Berkeley

We are a family of four Labradors. They each have their own different personality. Of course you always have that one that is the trouble maker, the one that makes you laugh, the one that keeps you on your A game. With my gang, it is Berkeley who keeps me on track.

When we brought Berkeley home for the first time, I had a litter of puppies. The puppies went to their new homes and we kept one of the puppies. We went from two Labradors to four. What was I thinking? How my life that I had known of easy days to pure chaos with two puppies, and Molly, and Bailey. As the months went by, and the sleepless nights, puppies peeing  all over the house,chewing my only key fob to my car, shoes, an whatever else they could destroy. I wouldn’t change anything at all. I can not recall how I ever lived without my little family of chaos.

Chicken & Dirty Rice

If you hate a lot of dishes to wash, you can make this chicken and dirty rice in one large cast iron pan. Cast iron should work best with this chicken and dirty rice because you need to transfer to the oven when done with the stove. Well, I think I used every dish I have to make this one pan chicken and dirty rice dish. I could not find my large cast iron pan, so I had to use a pan to cook the chicken, and sausage. After, I made this huge mess in the kitchen, I found my correct pan to use.  Amazing how that works when It should have all been one pan. Oh well, it tasted wonderful, so I decided to share this amazing recipe.

The flavor of this chicken and dirty rice is amazing. I am not sure if it is because of the spices or that I cooked in a cast iron pan . You will need to have a deep dish pan that can go from stove to oven.

Captain Morgan Jack O’ Blast

Pumpkin and spice lovers get your glasses ready to try out Captain Morgan Jack O’Blast pumpkin flavored rum. Fall is the time all things pumpkin, lattes, pies, and now shots. Captain Morgan Jack O’ Blast is nationwide or a limited time for retail of $15.99 for a 750 ml bottle. Best enjoyed chilled shot or in a mixed drink. A friend of mine suggested trying out with whipped vodka . She said it tasted just like a pumpkin pie. I will enjoy a glass when I head out to the hunting club . We have a huge bonfire and eat, and socialize so this will be a special treat to take with me. I haven’t been out to the club this year yet, due to the heat and nasty mosquitoes. Do you have any dessert recipes you think that Jack ‘O Blast would make amazing? I am making a pumpkin crisp, I think a small amount will give it a little added flavor.

I love to get in the kitchen and cook meals, but baking has never been my specialty. There truly is a difference, cooking a meal and baking. I think baking takes a special person. I have followed directions from top to bottom and have had a dessert totally flop. I get so aggravated because I have spent money on each and every single ingredient and have to throw the dessert away.  Rise Baking Boxes, you will get everything you need from the flour to eggs, and butter delivered to your door.
