I can respect Muslim customs over dogs. They are filthy creatures. Still ours gets wormed with Milbemax every Month. That's to protect her from heart worm and all the other worms they have, and us from catching the worms.
Toxicara is an awful disease. I can understand the old ways of limiting exposure to these dreadful parasites.
This goes for pork, seafood and all the other dietary warnings in the ancient writings. Poorly cooked pork is a minefield of worms. We eat pumpkin seeds every day as part of our diet.
Raw seafood and fish is a liver fluke problem dependent on the source. If it's near sewage. (Or radioactivity).
Ancient wisdom. Still with good health and hygiene, modern drugs to treat worms in dogs and animals it's not such a health problem. Still, our dog came from a skip. She was thrown away because she had demodectic mange. Now that Is difficult to get rid of. The poor dog had to have three baths a week followed by sheep dip. (Long story).
She never bit me during the bathing routine. Eventually our vet suggested he had a vetinary skin specialist visiting. She advised a full scalping. The poor dog was clippered with a pair of balding clippers, which I sacrificed from my salon.
Then we bathed her in a new shampoo and rubbed lotion on her. Then she started growing a new coat, which turned into a Mohawk! I was delighted. She grew a whole new coat and got better.
Then people started to ask me if I had 'styled' her like this!
She is ferel at heart. Unless she is upset, then she comes to lean on me! Never let this dog loose though. She is not to be trusted. She has her own Agenda.
Still back to RT, they have upped their game in the reporting section!
Perhaps they need a better quality of troll, the troll section really drags down the reporting. I like having a bit of banter, We are living in very fraught times, us proles need to have our say, otherwise all the politics will be going on over our heads and we won't get a say on anything.
I don't want the world I live in to be run without my dibs being noted. Anyway, here was the picture I was going to substitute.
We might have all got wiped out last Sunday, just as well that piece of space turd ended up hitting Venus, perhaps in a few million years they will have new life too... I can't load this either, drach!
Just let me re-load the image!
