RE: What Brand Dog Food do you Feed Your Dog and Why?

Our dogs get some form of Purina Dry Food ( Purina s been around probably 100 years)....Ditto. We have currently been feeding Purina One Chicken & Rice for quite a few years. FYI, here is Purina's history: Purina history Personally, I feel very comfortable using a company that has been around as long as Purina. Slick advertising will sell products in the short term, but to be as successful as Purina, you have to have happy, repeat customers.

USB memory stick into truck radio aux input?

I suspect this will get a lot of "maybe" answers, but what the heck. Maybe one of you have tried this. My 2013 Silverado has the bare bones AM/FM/CD/MP3 radio. No usb input, but it does have the 3.5mm "aux input" receptacle for an ipod or the like. I know there are usb to 3.5mm plug adapters available, but would my radio recognize mp3 files on a usb stick if I stuck it into the radio using such an adapter??? :@

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

... Murphy still gets mad and barks and growls at the vacuum 12 years later. LOL, that brings back memories of Gen. Missy! She hated vacuum cleaners, and would attack it when first turned on. I was always afraid she would get her tongue caught in the spinning brush, but she never did. :p She also hated my riding lawn tractor, and would attack the front tires. She would wait in a "pounce" posture as I got on the seat. As soon as I started the engine, she would try and bite the living daylights out of one of the front tires!:E I would yell at her to stop, and that would be that . . . . . . until the next time. :S

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

I agree with the the well reasoned and scientifically supported facts of ernie1. I am really dismayed by the many ad hominem attacks flung around like caged monkey scat. But it got me to thinking about the evolution of science, medicine and cultural anthropology in the area of human wastes. In some parts of the world people like to go off into the bush and relieve themselves even when there are sanitary facilities available. This is very much a cultural difference and it is difficult to change how people are "used" to doing things. I dont think anybody disputes that it is not civilized nor healthy for human beings to pee or defecate in populated areas both for reasons of health as well as smell. And our disgust at happening upon errant human defecation in situ or in progress is irregardless of possible wildlife defecation in the same area. Culturally we differentiate between the two. The proximity of dogs and cats to humans present a higher risk in the transmission of disease (zoonosis) by their raw wastes. And within the US we differ socially in our tolerance of the site and smell of animal dung. So farmers are probably not going to be bothered by dog dung while city folk just go ballistic by the sight or smell of it on the cityscape. It is why signs are posted "curb your dog" meaning dont let them take a dump on the sidewalk and it is much easier to walk a dog down the middle of the road at a CG than in a city. So back to the CG where we have a mix of people from farm/country, the city and everything in between converge with different tolerances, preferences, expectations and experiences. It doesnt make anyone wrong or right. No need for attacks.Thank you, professor. :) I have never heard the subject of "picking up poop" sound so . . . . . scientific!:C:W

RE: Suggestions for long trip

Hi all! We will be on the road for 23 days this fall and want to save some jingle by making most of our meals. We will eat an occasional lunch out (can't go to New England and not have chowder and lobster). We thought we would take frozen chili and soups along for some suppers but would love to hear your suggestions for a little variety. The more we can pre-make the better. Thanks for your help! Pat and KathyWhen we are on the road, many times before we leave we cook up a big batch of spaghetti with meat sauce. We slop it all into a one gallon freezer bag or other plastic container, and stick it into the RV fridge. It makes three, quick and easy dinners for the two of us while on the road. :C Of course, if ya don't like spaghetti . . . . . :S

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

We were eating breakfast outside on our site while a lady walked up and relieved both of her dogs in front of us.... One time I was sitting outside my camper, reading a book. I did not have the awning out, as it was a very nice day. A bird flying over pooped right on my head! :M

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Scoleciphobia (So-leh-kee-pho-be-ah) is also known by other names like Vermiphobia and Helminthophobia. They all mean the persistent and irrational fear of worms. The word Scoleciphobia originates from Greek Scoleci meaning parasitic worms and phobos meaning deep dread or aversion. Helminthophobia is the secondary fear of one’s body being infested or attacked by worms (Helmintho is another Greek word for worms).Well, I learned something new and interesting today! I learned I do not suffer from scoleciphobia! :C

An advance search of the archives (>1 year old) did not find the epic story.THIS is where the epic story got it's start: Halloween Crack From that modest beginning sprung the saviour's of the world, the DEFENDERS OF THE LIGHT http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y23/walterc2/specialforcestriosig.gif

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

I nominate Walter for the job of FP.:B I second! I have always stated that, if nominated, I will accept. :C Now, I must thank my primary campaign donor, Nestle Purina, without whom I would never had this opportunity. In particular, I must thank Purina 1 dog food for being the best dog food around. Remember, if you want good poop, get Purina! Where that poop is deposited, well, that's between you and your dog. :)

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

.... You are right and believe it or not Google failed. Please give us the "short' course. You asked! :) In a nutshell, the Defenders Of The Light (DOTL), are a group of RV.NET pets',mostly dogs and cats, who have dedicated their lives to fighting Darkness and Evil throughout the world. Indeed, throughout the universe as we know it. A number of DOTL sagas appeared on RV.NET a few years ago. These were primarily penned by Lorni (Nifty250), myself (DOTLDaddy) and occasionally others. It all started with a topic called, as I recall, "Halloween Crack", by Lon Frank. There are many, many DOTL's still on active duty here on RV.NET. The two original leaders of the DOTL, Gen. Missy and Gen. Jax, have since passed the baton to younger Defenders. Both joined the Elite, Rainbow Division years ago, with full honors.

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Actually the X-pen or a white rope or the "turf" is the marker for where she can go. I wouldnt expect the X pen to keep her inside. Sorry for the misunderstanding. And whether big or small jumpers, dogs can be trained to stay inside a specified area. Mine stay inside the RVan with the door open (as they have inside the car) until I give the release command. I dont over train my dogs but I want them trained to stay in the vehicle until I have them leashed and it is safe for them to come out. And unleashed they simply cannot come out of the vehicle at all. Ingrid, I like you. :)

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

It's called Ft DOTL with the entire site fenced with portable electric fence Solves a lot of problems: roaming pets, campers cutting through, roaming wild life pooping on your site, neighbors with cameras, etc Mark, I bet more than half of the current participants have no idea what a "Ft DOTL" is or the history behind the whole concept. :B

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Our older dog, Gretchen, physically can't walk long distances anymore. She often cannot make it to the "dog area". Why not set up an X pen with some turf carpet inside and train her to go there so she doesnt have to walk too far anymore? I know your suggestion is in good faith, so I won't yank your chain too much.:) Gretchen is a BIG dog, 80lbs, tall and long. There is just no way I can set up something like an X pen that would accommodate her. If she was some sort of toy breed I might consider it.

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Why can't Gretchen hang around your space and poop there?.... Are you kidding! :p I don't want dog poop on my site!:M:W In reality, that would be OK with me. It would make it so much easier in bad weather. Unfortunately, I have never been able to teach Gretchen and Inga to poop on command. I think to most dogs, pooping is a process that cannot be hurried or rushed along. We have passed up many spots that, to me, look like perfect places to poop, only to discard them as not suitable. Our campsite is deemed not desirable about 99% of the time. In addition, they become even more choosey as the weather gets worse. Yes, our dogs pooping on our own site would make me a very happy camper.:)
