Love Knots

Sharon asks…

what age can you give a puppy a knotted bone?

I have a 6 month old puppy, i just bought a knotted bone for her but it has no information on the rapping for ages or anything its not like its huge iver its quite small, can i give it to her?

LoveKnots answers:

You can give her the bone, but you MUST watch her with it. I will assume the bone is a rawhide…I personally do not give my dogs rawhide chews. He does enjoy them, but at the end, will try to swallow the last piece which is usually too big.
My dog gets marrow bones or bully sticks. And even then, not that often..maybe one or two times a week. And to be honest, even though he is now 4, I still don’t give him one without being around to listen and make sure he doesn’t choke on it.
Also a heads-up. Sometimes people don’t realize that things like the rawhide chews or bones can make a dog “primal”. Your dog may have never shown any guarding behavior before and you may not have it on your mind…but the first time I gave my pup a bone, he started growling at me and watching so that I would not approach. Yes, even cute little dogs can do this. If your pup is 6 months, he is old enough to be trained to leave it/take it. A rawhide is a good tool to use to do this. Don’t take it from him…give him the leave it command and see that he gives it up before you take it away. And then give it back and make sure he is gentle and doesn’t try to snatch it from you. If you do it that way from the start, you should avoid him doing any resource guarding.
BTW I just bought deer antler at my feed store…my dog LOVES it and it is sooo noo mess!

How can I get Mariah Carey curls without wetting my hair?

I love Mariah Carey and I want hair like she had in the 90′s. The problem is, I have African American hair so I can’t do anything involving water when trying to get the hair that she had. I’m going to straighten my hair first so that it’ll be easier to work with. Any tips on how I can achieve her locks? Thanks.

LoveKnots answers:

You could do Bantu knots on your hair check on “whoissugar” tutorial on YouTube. Or you could use flexi rods/perm rods.

Ruth asks…

What are some stylish outfits you can create using some basic pieces everyone has?

I love experimenting with fashion, and I was just wondering if anyone had any cool ideas.

LoveKnots answers:

Outfit one: simple black crop top and denim shorts
Two: skinny jeans and white tee along w/ a leather jacket (looks great w/ a top knot)
three: Capri’s w/ a tank tucked in preferably
four: same as two but instead of a white tee you could do a vintage rocker shirt.
Stores you could shop:

Hope this helps =)

Donald asks…

What are the least commonly known mythical creatures?

I’m writing a story, as most people on yahoo seem to be, although I’m not planning on getting it published, it’s just a labour of love. Anyway, the point is, I know of many mythical creatures, and the mythology behind them, but I want to know about some that are very rarely heard of. Basically, nothing that is in modern literature, like vampires, werewolves, fairies etc. Any answers appreciated, but remember you get ten points for the top answer, so please think it through!

LoveKnots answers:

Alps: little German creatures that sit on peoples chests at night and slowly become heavier, give people nightmares, drink blood from nipples (women only), milk cows dry,ride horses until they collapse from exhaustion, put dirty diapers back on babies, and tie peoples hair into knots while they sleep. They can also shape shift, taking the forms of mist, weasels, moths, cats, and other people. This is possible due to a magic hat that they wear, and the hat is present in every form they take. If they lose their hat, they will offer a huge reward to whoever finds it. They are weak to light, lemons, horseshoes, and crosses. They also can only exit a room from the same place they entered, and can’t leave if that exit is blocked. Another way to stop an alp is to invite it for tea or coffee the next morning. The alp with have to comply and, upon receiving the tea or Coffee, leave forever.

Paul asks…

how can i remove two VERY large knots from my boyfriends VERY long hair?

without cutting it i have the time but what should i use?
please help hes in a metal band and he LOVES his long hair.

LoveKnots answers:

Go to cvs, get that johnson and johnson detangle spray in the kids/baby section i believe……

Separate all of the unknotted hair away from the knot, spray the knot

how his hair above the knot and brush the knot starting from the bottom but make sure you are gripping his hair above the knot as to not hurt him

add more spray as need, i guess if you dont want to get the spray you can put conditioner on the knot to make the hair slippery so it separates…

Long hair needs alot of brushing, tell him he MUST brush his hair before going to bed every night and brush it when he wakes up and/or before he showers and AFTER he gets out of the shower, starting at the bottom and working his way up to avoid breakage

Sandy asks…

How do you get poodle fur extra fluffy?

My poodle gets tight knots and then they are painful to undo. Especially around the muzzle. Any suggestions? Bigfoot would appreciate it!

LoveKnots answers:

Visit a “pet store” not Walmart or the like. Find a nice brush and comb set for a poodle. Bathe thoroughly, use poodle conditioner especially if poodle is white. Brightener shampoo/conditioners work wonders on brightening the coats of different color dogs. I bought sable for my sable-colored pom; he was quite handsome after a bath. He looked like a fuzz ball.

DO NOT USE A MATT BREAKER ON FACE! Take pup to a groomer and let groomer remove it. He/she might look a little funny until the fur grows back but one nick or painful moment will take your little fellow/gal forever to trust you again once hurt during a bathtime incident.

Trust me. My mother’s Pom wouldn’t let her touch him after she accidentally hurt him. She had to bring him to me for baths and brushings for months until the dog trusted my mother again. She helped me bathe her pup by first watching, then later participating until the fellow earned her trust again.

Brush the tangles out. On low dry, dry your pup but go slow until your dog gets used to the noise. Once used to the noise, they will love baths & combing. Brush out from the base of the skin to the outside. Fluff with a comb being extra careful of tangles. It’s important to take poodles to a competent shampooer for trims on a regular basis, say every 6 to 8 weeks. The rest you can do at home. You can even buy those little bows. It’s simply tiny rubber bands glued to ribbons.

After the fellow or lady is dry, fluff again from the skin to the outer coat to bring more fluffines. BTW, diet plays a major roll in fluffy coats too. Don’t skimp on dog food. Buy the high quality stuff. If corn or meal is the first ingredient, walk by and keep looking. Nature’s Recipe, Pro Plan, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet etc… Are all great dog foods. They come in canned variety and offer treats too. Also, add a Greenie to your dog’s diet for teeth cleaning. Check dog size against Greenie size.

BTW, pick up a bottle of eye cleaner that wipes away the darkness in the coat around the eyes of white poodles. It makes them even more beautiful & safe for eyes.

One more thing before I forget, spray fur with a light (Light-Light) conditioner mixed with water after completely dry to bring back curls. I’ve only had miniture teacup poodles but this always brought their curls back without losing the fluffy fur-ball look.Just lightly spray then lightly scrunch.
