she sleeps on my front porch, stinky dog smell. Any suggestions?

Take her for loong walks. You can ride a bike, go-cart, the dogs strides by your side. Catch
her at her digging (misbehavior) and use a squirt gn and firm command, NO. After about the third time they stop. Sharon H. offered an excellent solution. Try distracting her when she does something you do not want her to do with another toy. (no treats) Sounds like she is missing her family. Give her a special area to dig if possible. Some people, with large dogs, try mouse traps, the snap startles them. Sounds like she is jusy lonely for her family.
Ask Anna explains how using 3 household ingredients can get rid of that smell that mysteriously appears in a boys bathroom. Here is the readers question: Our front bathroom is pretty much used by our 2 boys. My problem is that I cannot get rid of the "boy bathroom smell." I scrubbed the bathroom last week, and have made a point to wipe things down and have them do it as well. I even replaced the toilet seats. It makes me want to go in there with a pressure washer full of bleach! Any
suggestions on how to get rid of the smell?? I always worry guests can smell it too unless I turn the wax burner on.

Try also wipping the wall down. Reminds me of my little male "Huley" who is quick as a wink @
marking, leaving little messages to himself and the two little females we have. LOL! It's NAY-SHAW! ????
This is my second fountain in my shade garden. It is made from an old millstone that has a tub underneath. The gazing ball in the background sits on an old tree stump that was retrieved from a river and left to dry a year before we drilled up the center of it for electrical so we could make the gazing ball glow at night.
I had so much fun putting my "Polatems" together. I collected beautiful pots and plates from Goodwill and garage sales. I dug a hole 12" deep intserted a piece of rebar, which can be purchased at a hardware store in any length of your choice. Fill the hole with concrete. Level the rebar to make it straight. Once the concrete dries..overnight is good, start putting the pots and plates onto the rebar in an artistic order, gluing them as you go..I used glass glue from the hardware
store, it comes in a caulking tube. Use a level to keep each pot or plate straight. You can add pieces in the middle such as a metal dish from an old firepit as a planter or even a terricotta planter. Just be creative. Top it off with a glass ball, a ceramic bird or whatever suits you fancy. There you have it ...Enjoy and watch the birds..even the Hummers like the colors.
