Kids Stuff: For Kids of All Ages
Hey all you kids and those young at heart, we had no entries for last month's CLUE HUNT so we're going to run it again in July.
Remember, the first one to email us with all the correct answers gets a PRIZE!
The answers will be listed in next month's Doggazine and we'll list the names of the prize winner and all who answered correctly.
(Adding your state, province or country and particulars about your dog(s) will make it more interesting for our readers.)
Here's how to send us your answers:
Ready for Clue Hunt #1? Here we go!
This month's answers can be found in the following areas of our site:
Question: Toni from Australia writes: Do you have instructions for making a dog car ramp that can be folded away to store in the car when not in use? The folding ones available made from alumunium etc are around $350-$400 AU! Far too much.
Answer: We haven't made one ourselves as yet. However, if we were to make one, I think we would modify the Plywood Dog Ramp as follows:
Determine the best length, width and thickness of your plywood based on your dog's needs.
Measure how long the folded ramp can be to fit in the car. For instance, if you have an 8 ft (2400mm) ramp and you have 4 ft (1200mm) of car space, you can have a ramp that folds in half. If you have less space in the car than that, you'll need to have a ramp with at least three folding sections for it to fit.
Also, measure how thick the folded sections can be. If you're trying to stow the ramp in a space 3 inches (75mm) high, it may be a challenge to fit the ramp when folded.
We hope to have built a folding ramp and have more detailed instructions available by the next issue of the Doggazine.
Here are two dog books we found helpful:
How To Be Your Dog's Best Friend by the Monks of New Skete -
Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide To
Natural Health For Dogs & Cats -
The Pitcairns offer easy-to-make nutritionally balanced recipes based on raw foods and whole grains as substitutes.
They also offer natural health care solutions for many common ailments such as cancers, worms, skin problems and more.
Tips & Tricks
If you're sewing fabric such as cotton that will take a crease, it is often easier to pin and then iron it before sewing.
What's New at Make and Build Dog Stuff?
We've been a little slow at adding new pages this month, but here are two:
Homemade Pooper Scoopers (as mentioned under Free Stuff) and
Other Types of Dog Carts
One human to another at a ballgame: "Mark my spot while I get a hot dog, will you?"
Human reading newspaper says to whining dog: "Let me finish reading this article, then we'll go for a walk."
That's all till next month folks. See you then!
