    Dogs & Fireworks

    I found this today- a DIY version of a thundershirt which is said to be very comforting to dogs who are scared of fireworks. not tried it myself as our dog although a little twitchy is not too bad but for those who do have anxious dogs it may be worth a go.

    revolting fly trap- worth every penny! note the taped seams- these cheap traps sometimes leak- if you tape them before adding water it usually stops it. the more expensive redtop brand traps do not leak but I found them too powerful- I just want to kill flies in our garden- not attract...
