Meet Milly - Ear Problems


We have 2 yellow Labradors Murphy who is English! who is a bit of a world wide traveller! we flew him over from England when we moved to the USA and Milly an American born lab. This post is about Milly.

About a week before we went on vacation she developed a slight ear infection. Knowing how an ear infection can get out of hand, especially with labs, I wanted to get it nipped in the bud before it got any worse, and didn't want it to still be bad when I went away. I did no want to go to the vets and spend a fortune on medication that either made it worse, didn't work or really cost an arm and a leg, I did a search on the Internet and found this product from Amazon:

Zymox Otic Pet Ear Treatment with Hydrocortisone

After reading all the reviews from other buyers I decided to give it a go. I just had to share my experience of this product because if it helps one pet owners pet then it was worth posting details about it. I am not one to shout out about a product unless I really believe it works and I am not being paid by amazon or anyone else to post this, I am just one happy customer.

This product worked.

Three days later, the ear infection was completely clear, I absolutely love this stuff. I just wish I had known about it 10 years earlier with one of our labs that used to have recurrent ear problems, that not only cost a fortune but never cleared up, no matter what the vet prescribed. When using this product, do not clean the ears and remove all the gunk as it will not work properly, it is some sort of chemical enzyme reaction that aids in the working of the product. Just read the directions properly. I only used this product for 3 days and it did the trick.

Bumble Bee

I managed to get a close up of this bee enjoying the Flowers, I am pretty pleased at the detail in this photo, so may even enlarge and frame it, I just need to decide where I would put it.

It was a beautiful day yesterday, and the butterflies were enjoying my garden so I had to get out there and snap some pics.

Ikea Cushions

We took a quick trip to Ikea and the Mall of America yesterday, that's if you can call it a quick trip! it is about 2hrs 30 mins from here, each way! Anyway, I ended up buying some cushion/pillows and some covers for spare cushions I had around the house, these were destined for our family room, the old ones were really starting to look old!!!! bobbly is one word I would use to describe the old ones, but YUK would be more appropriate! I cannot seem to get a good picture today so this is it. I am loving the two embroidered covers, the striped ones are slightly different one has a zip closure and has blue and red stripes and the other has buttons and is a lot more muted. For more details I have posted a link to them online.

Alvine Flora Cushion $19.99
Alvine Spetsig cushion cover $10.00
Alvine cushion cover x 2 $7.00 each
Erktorp Lumbar Cushion x 2 $19.99

After Ikea we crossed over the road to the Mall of America, my DH treated me to a new bead for my Pandora bracelet and this is the one I chose:
any guesses why?

Then on to Lush, this was one of my favourite stores back home and I am so glad that there is one here, so I stocked up on a few bath bombs to keep me going for a little while! They also do mail order which I might give a go as I am not sure when my next trip to Minneapolis will be. One of my favourite bath bombs is the Big Blue Bath Bomb, if you have never tried these then I can highly recommend them. Another favourite is the bubble bath bars.

Please if you like what you see or read leave me a comment, and whatever the weather have a great day.

Vacation - Panama City Beach, Florida

So I have been MIA again, we just got back on Thursday from our vacation, I had a wonderful time. I spent a great deal of time relaxing and walking on the beach collecting shells.

I did manage to bring back a small collection of shells that I collected and even some sand dollars. So a trip to TJ Maxx was in order today so that I could find a little glass bowl for the sand dollars and a jar for the shells, I was successful and will share with you tomorrow my little holiday collection when I have taken some pics.

I just wish I could have bought back more, next time I go on vacation I am gonna make sure I pack less clothes, then I can collect more shells.......................
So as not to leave you with anything to look at..... here is the view from the balcony in the condo we stayed in.............
