I bet that was a vision (bowling pins lol) with the dogs. hahaha Poor babies. I opened the door to feed the fat boy cat I adopted and seen all that glaze on the stairs, sidewalk, cars, grill etc... I fed him and came in to mix that up too I always have the ingredients (love Dawn compared to others) and after I de-iced the stairs and sidewalk they were good to go the rest of the day. Glad I found it.Hemp, if it makes you feel better, I almost bit it yesterday too. I was able to catch myself. The dogs however, not so much. They were like bowling pins rolling down the steps outside yesterday morning. I felt SO bad. It was hard to get them to come back up after they'd done their duty. They didn't trust the steps after that.
I didn't realize early that everything was like a glazed donut out there, so I opened the door as usual. Not a good idea.... They barreled out like freight trains and then all of them started to tumble at once. It was horrid to watch.. Talk about slow motion horror!!
But I used AB's deicing recipe and it worked! We didn't have a problem out there the rest of the day, either!!
(But convincing the dogs of that wasn't easy.. Poor babies).
Thank God that fear passed due to a trio of deer that tickled their snouts as the door opened first thing today.
One is having to take baby aspirins though. Limping a little bit this morning, same as last night. A bit better than last night though, so I think we can avoid the vet. This time.
I hope your babies get over their trauma of yesterday.
Have a great day!
