Odd sections of rope make wonderful dog toys and can be as simple or as complex as you want to make them.
The simplest version is to take about a foot of rope and then tie a knot in the middle. You should really secure the knot in the rope by having two people hold a pair of pliers and use them to pull on each end of the rope and get that know as tight as can be. A second knot on top of the first makes for a sturdier toy and gives your dog a good place to grip it.
A knot on each end of the lench of rope makes a fun tug toy and you can make these out of different lengths.
You can also take a longer length of rope, about 2 feet and tie the ends together to make a loop. This is fun for dogs who like to play tug-a-war and especially works great if you have a couple dogs that like to play tug-a-war!

Also your dog is gonna start shedding soon, if they haven’t already. So another way to help keep them cool is to help them quickly get rid of that extra fur. You can help them by giving them a bath with Bioguard Shampoo, spraying them with Dog or Puppy Shed-Stop and brushing them. For brushing during this high shedding time of year I would recommend the Oster Shedzilla Dog Grooming Rake.

There is something about have your own flock of Chickens that does the family good. You can get quite a bit of enjoyment from raising your flock not to mention the fresh eggs you get along with a supply of fresh meat if you decide to. You can use the flock to teach responsibilities to young members of your family. From taken daily care of the flock to raising 4-H projects for the fair. Rural King has all your needs for starting and taken care of your flock. Your local store has several different breed on hand plus you can always order exotic breeds for 4-H projects. We carry Starter Feed, Layer Crumbles along with many other feeds or treats.
When starting your flock, remember to keep your Chicks at the proper temperature. Chicks need to be at 90 to 100 degrees for the first week. You can drop the temperature 5 degree each week until the chicks are 6 to 8 weeks old. You can tell if the area is too cold or too warm by watching your chicks. If your chicks are grouped closely together under the light, then it is too cold. If the chicks are spread out unevenly trying to get a way from the light it is too hot. If the Chicks are spread out even within their area, then the temperature is just right. Remember Goldilock’s when it comes to your chicks, not too cold, not too hot but just right. You can get everything you need from Brooder Lamps, Heat Bulbs, Feed, Waterers and Feeders at your local Rural King.
Suet is a good choice for attracting insect-eating birds. Suet can be purchased as processed cake that includes seeds, berries, and other ingredients like this one, from St. Alban’s Bay, available at Rural King. Suet is a high energy formulation of animal fat and other ingredients to attract insect eating birds, which, in return, help keep down the insect population in your yard. It is also a quick source of heat and energy for birds, who’s metabolisms are set on fast forward. It traditionally has been used as a good substitute for the insects that birds usually feed upon but are not plentiful in cold weather. Suet can be presented all year long. Offering suet in a wire cage or suet log is a low-maintenance bird feeder. You refill only once every week or so, you never need to scrub the feeder, and you can leave it in your yard year round. Presenting suet in your backyard will also attract a greater variety of birds for your enjoyment.
