Some People Need to Steal Content, Because They Can’t Create Their Own

Are you reading this post on a site like,, or

That’s because there’s someone that can’t create content of his own and has to steal it from blogs like in order to fill his site with content, in a lame attempt to sell pet medications via affiliate links.

If you are reading it on a site like this, you can read the actual posts here, instead of on the site of a thief.

If you are reading this on my actual site or in RSS, I apologize. I just wanted to get a post calling these leeches out onto their sites, since their theft is completely automated.

Holistic Supplements For Dog With Mast-Cell Tumor

I read the following segment of an article about holistic supplements for a dog with mast-cell t
tumors.  I felt the information was valuable enough to pass it along.  The full article information is below.  I especially like the last couple of sentences.

“I have a 6-year-old Lab/beagle mix who has had many problems — the latest being two mast-cell tumors. The tumors were removed on separate occasions, and the surgeries were successful; however, we were told that we needed to be diligent about checking for lumps.

“Our veterinary oncologist has recommended that the dog be put on 4,000 milligrams of fish oil and 10 milligrams of Pepcid. She suggested Pepcid because dogs with mast-cell tumors tend to get ulcers, and the fish oil helps discourage the return of the mast cells.

“Also, a friend of mine in Florida said that her holistic vet uses food-grade liquid aloe in diets for dogs that have had cancer. Neither my vet nor vet oncologist have heard of this before, but from what I’ve read on the Internet, it makes sense. What do you think of using food-grade aloe as a supplement? And how much should a 45-pound dog drink?

Answer from Dr Michael Fox: “There are many treatments that can be integrated into a holistic therapeutic regimen for your dog’s cancer.

“I concur with what the two veterinarians recommend: You can give 1 tablespoon of aloe vera in your dog’s food twice daily. I would also recommend New Chapter’s anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor Zyflamend and anti-cancer Immortal Mushrooms combination of beneficial fungi. Daily treatment with a mild antihistamine may also be beneficial, along with a super-antioxidant supplement such as N-acetyl-L-cysteine and alpha-lipoic acid. Above all, avoid any treatments that may compromise your dog’s immune system, such as “booster” vaccinations and spot-on anti-flea drugs. Feed your dog a whole-food diet rather than manufactured dog food, good nutrition being the first medicine.”

Thoughts On Designing a Nursery

Simple, Modern Nurseries // Bubby and Bean

Today I thought I’d share some of the rad nurseries I’ve discovered online over the last few weeks while seeking out inspiration.  Although we still have five months to go before baby arrives, we’ve already started gathering ideas (and paint chips galore) for her/his room.  My husband is off the road for a few weeks right now, so we’re doing our best to get organized while we can on the weekends and during the evenings when I’m done with work.  I remember just a couple of years ago, feeling like the ten month period we had to plan our wedding was so much time.  But with Robbie gone for over half of it and me scrambling to get everything done on my own as the date approached, I ended up feeling pretty overwhelmed.  This time (albeit a much different situation) I’ve learned my lesson, and we’re taking advantage of our time together to get plans into place and projects started.

We currently live in a two bedroom townhouse.  I’d really like to move into something larger (with a yard!) before baby becomes a toddler, but for now, we’re doing the best we can with what we have.  The room that will become the nursery is now a guest room (that admittedly also doubles as a storage unit; don’t open the closet in there or you’ll be bombarded).  We’re trying to figure out a way to possibly set up a space in our unfinished basement for guests to stay (that will be an entirely different post; sigh), so the plan is to take the bed apart and reassemble down there.  Completely cleaning out the closet is another task on the list.  And the paint color in the room is gorgeous – a rich, warm, dark grey.  But it’s much too dark for a baby.  So we’ll be repainting as well. 

As much as I love design and redecorating, this nursery is a bit of a design challenge for me, because I know that I have to break away from my usual tenancies.  My decorating style leans toward the minimalistic end of the spectrum.  I’m a fan of neutral colors (white, black, and grey) and clean, modern lines.  I just have to remember that this room is for a baby – which means incorporating fun, colorful elements.  The crib will be white, and we’ll be painting an old dresser and bookshelves white as well.  For the walls, we’re thinking a pale grey.  This will lighten up the room, but won’t make it look quite as ‘sterile’ as plain white walls might.  The plan is to stick with whites and greys throughout the room, then add a few pops of vibrant colors and a few rustic, organic details throughout the space.  Regardless of whether baby is a boy or a girl (and yes, we’re finding out), we’d like to keep the nursery pretty gender neutral.  My vision is simple, modern, and fun.  I’ll be sure to share before and after pics once the project is (eventually!) completed.

Have any of you designed nurseries recently?  Or transformed a space in your home from one type of room to another?

It’s the first day of a new month!  That means a brand new group of sponsors (along with some returning favorites) here on Bubby and Bean.  Make sure to pay them a visit by clicking on their pretty graphics over there in the right side bar.  You’ll be glad you did – promise.
