Dear Mommy to be

It is important to give the best quality dog food you can buy, worm them every month till 6 months old and pick up the poo ASAP. Some people use pineapple in the diet or ferrous sulphate to give the motion a bad smell that may help a little bit.

It' s a habit that is disgusting to us, but in fact it doesn' t really do the dogs any harm. Very common!

It will encourage you to pick up your lawn every 10 minutes!
