1 gallon warmish water
1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1 cup dish washing liquid (Old husband tale says it has to be "Dawn" dish washing liquid, but I found that just about any kind works)

Do not premix, it is only effective for about 1/2 hour before it's magic healing powers are defunct.

Pre wet dog with warm water. Soak dog thoroughly in concoction. Sponge it on thick and let it get down to the skin.

Let dog sit for 15 mins (If you can LOL!) and rinse.

Walla.. unstinky dog.. skunky smell never to return.

You really have more to worry about with racoons than slugs. You can get out of the way of a slug.. they aren't exactly swift when in attack mode. The coons at the park are people savy and can be aggressive, so you want to watch with your dogs. If they are chasers, it's best to bring them in at nite and keep an eye on them while they are tied up.

I had them all around and trying to get UNDER my tent the first year I went. They climbed on and scratched my car last year.

and Lisa, I don't want to hear any complaints from a state that sports THIS fine creature ... that could wear a saddle.

uck.. give me slugs any day. This is the king of ugly!

All I can say is this is gonna be interesting. I have Doxie's and they are hunters by nature. But they are always on leashes so I will have some sense of control.......... ( yeah, right) . Coon's don't bother me, so much, I can at least see them. When we owned a resort, we had a wild turkey decide to stay............. I said, Oh NO! But the guest were like don't be mean, let the turkey stay.......Fast forward a week or two........... They finally agreed with me. Only after the " darn" thing got on top of several coaches and walked around all night. I swear I didn't put him up there . He was cute until he decided to walk around poooooooping on their roofs.................. LOL





Oh Gina, bring the cat so it can do slug patrol for us

Speaking of which, Gina, are you coming now? I see your spot on the map is still white. Did a FGR get it or will the gate from B to A be lost forever?

Hi: Gina... With that much "Hydrogen Peroxide" in the mix do you end up with a "Bleached Blond" dog??? The only time I ever saw a cat take a bath was in "Tomato Juice"!!!

Dh and I were talking this weekend and he reminded me that last time we were in Oregon 2001, we couldn't pump our own gas............ (not that I minded) But it just throws you, it's been so long since I had full service gas pumps that I just marveled at the service. Is that still the way it's done? Thanks Robin

Yep, we still don't pump our own gas. Not to be political, but we've heard for years the price would be cheaper if we did. Bunk. We're cheaper than Washington State or California... it's the gas tax that inflates the price. I love it!

Oh I think I would love it to, Donna. Unless I was in a hurry, then I would be flippen out.



But for those that are first timers in Oregon, it will be a shock! Hard to get used too.............. It's been sooooooooo long since we have had a full service Gas Station in Coloraodo it's such a treat! Heck I even tipped the guy! I didn't know if that was expected or not but I sure enjoyed not having to stand there and fill a gas guzzzzling Class A......

All the times before that I had visited Oregon, I was a kid, and we still had Full Service way back then, so I didn't even know until our trip thru in 2001.


So first time Oregon visiters sit back and enjoy!

Not only does Oregon provide full-service gas, their gas station staff does it with a friendly smile and if you have fuzzybutts in the back seat (or side-saddle), they'll likely get a dog treat as well. So, Oregon gets a big Yeay Oregon!

Nope... no bleaching happens. This recipe really works. Tomato juice does not work; it only turns your pet pink and smelly in a different way. Ha!

If the dog has white in it, it does make it really brilliant white. It has no effect on colors.

There are not. There are a number of Costco's convenient to the trip if you're on I-5.

Medford would be closest to Bandon if coming from the south, and from the north Eugene would be closest

There is a Wal Mart in Coos Bay and a Casino that lets you dry camp if you get there too early and your camp spot isn't ready yet. The Casino is on the north end of town on 101 so is easy to get in and out of while the Walmart is off about a mile or two from 101 heading out towards Charleston.

Just a quick observation: From Kent Washington all the way to south of Roseburg, the cheapest gas we found was:
Costco in Olympia 4.09 exit 111?
Costco in Albany 4.09 exit 234
Crewell Arco cash price was 4.13 exit 182
