ITS A GIRL!!!
« on: October 05, 2018, 11:47:15 pm »
Her name is Lucy and we adopted her from a shelter in Grants, New Mexico. Hick and I had been looking for a pet for the last 3 years. Lucy is a 3 year old Yorkie and boy is she a handful  at times!

What a cutie! Bring her over to the Cabin to meet our critters. If you & Hick ever need a place for Lucy to stay for a day or two, she can bunk with Punkin, Dreyfuss, Ivie, Annabelle, & the rest of the gang.

I could use that type of a dog to get rid of some critters in my backyard, specifically moles. I caught one and released it in a forest. I have gassed 3 more. With my new backyard there was a lot of restoration work to be done on the large lawn, and these moles were not making it easy. I have seriously considered getting some terriers for just this purpose.

Get yourself a Rat Terrier. My folks had one before I was born and Pat brought them not only rats, but snakes, prairie dogs and sometimes jack rabbits. IF Pat saw them toss his gift in the trash he would pout and not acknowledge them.

My neighbor on the south side of me has been inundated with gophers. Pretty much their entire back yard and then the side area between us going in a slant into their driveway. There are 5 mounds on my side that I have to avoid to get my trash/recycling/yard waste bins to the curb. So I bought TomCat Gopher worms. Gopher's eat worms and grubs. Well we don't have any grass for the grubs to live in, so it is worms they are after. Perhaps today will be the day I have the least amount of pain so I can go and scrape off the top of the mound, find the hole and toss in a worm. The person who lives behind us has used vibration to scare the vermin into our yards. There is no where else for them to go- don't really know how far down they will dig - it will have to be around 4-6 feet to get under the road to get into the vacant lots [4 of them] to eat until they burst.

Nope, never have I seen the reasoning about humanly catching vermin (rodents of all kinds) and releasing them onto unsuspecting people. If all rats, mice, moles, gophers, ground squirrels were annihilated to extinction, what would that actually do to our eco system? Would it really hurt us???

In the meantime, I will kill these gophers with the poison worms.
