Arizona homeschool student guest blogger/Morkies

As a part of our grammar studies my daughter compiled a paper on Morkies, a special breed of dog that we plan to bring home soon.  I thought this would be a great opportunity to build both grammar skills and responsibility.  I promised my daughter Chloe that if she did a good job on this project that she could post it as a guest blogger.  So, here you go, "All About Morkies" by Chloe Fuller.

All About Morkies

     A Morkie is a Maltese and Yorkshire terrier mix and it has lots of personality.  A Morkie is a good family dog. A Morkie is also a good watch dog.  A Morkie is a small dog.  It will be 3 to 10 pounds when it is full grown.  It is about a pound right now.

     We have visited Petco and priced some important things.  The following chart shows what we found.
$7.99 each
Iam’s Food
$14.99 bag
Hanging tag
Shampoo and tear remover

We will also pay to bring our Morkie home from the breeder.  We will name our morkie “Hulk.”  He is a boy.

     A Morkie needs attention.  A Morkie needs brushed daily and it needs its eyes cleaned daily with tear remover.  A Morkie needs its teeth brushed daily.  Early in life, a morkie will need 3 small meals per day.  It will need potty breaks morning, evening, and after every meal.  A Morkie is somewhat fragile so be gentle.  They like car rides and may also get separation anxiety.

Great Job Chloe!!

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
