Natural Solution for Fleas!

It’s Flea Season!


To rid your home of fleas, spread a box of Mule Team Borax (available in your store’s laundry soap isle), over your carpet. Use a broom and sweep it into the carpet. Wait a couple of hours then vacuum. The residual borax that remains in the carpet will kill the fleas and their larvae simply by drying them out.

Make sure your pets do not walk on the floor while the Borax is there. It can be absorbed into their feet.

Pawsitive Art

Stanley the Dawg by Jeanie Mossa

This art is available on prints, framed and canvas too. The original art was sold at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria.

“Under a Summer Sun” Exhibit at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter

Jeanie has two mixed media pieces in this show at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria in cooperation with the Del Ray Artisans. The theme of this exhibit is “two-dimensional works of art celebrating warm summer days—past, present and future. Artworks include a variety of styles and media inspired by our and our animals friends’ love of summer.” A percentage of each sale goes directly to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and Del Ray Artisans. Jeanie’s works are entitled Ralph and Stanley. These colorful dogs capture the colors of summer, partly in tribute to the bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley. Pieces are on show May 31 – September 27, 2015.
