Ireland in officially in drought. It’s 15 days without any rain that causes this definition to kick in. We’re oddly ill prepared for the disappearance of wet. But then you see something you’d never seen before like the gritters out scattering rock chips over the bubbling tar on the main roads. Only on the driving track the cars cause, not the entire carriageway.
Farmers are moaning again less that two months from their last crescendo of carping. When last time it was because the sky was dumping tons of rain, now it’s the grass burning up from the lack of it. This of course has nothing at all to do with a bet they made three years ago to increase the national herd by 25%, pushing a risk into certainty by removing any leeway they had.
I’m trying the Medium Dog drugs for the tick/flea/worm/mange/heartworm on Jessy. While she is a bit headache-y, she isn’t as poleaxed as she usually is from the Large Dog. Jessy is about 20-22kg, this works out at 44-48llb ishy. And the product splits at 20kg between the Medium and Large. This makes Jess at the top end of one and just inside the bottom of the other.
