There are many myths about animals that have been repeated so many times that most folks believe they are true. These myths are often called Old Wives' Tales but I firmly believe that many of the beliefs were created by males so I prefer to be politically correct and call them OLD SPOUSE'S TALES. The essays in this book are meant to dispel the Old Spouses Tales about animals and animal related myths that have been propagated for so long that they are accepted as true. Some of the truths brought out in this book include the best way to de-skunk a dog (t tomato juice). The best way to keep a dogs teeth clean without a toothbrush, what to feed wild baby birds (t worms), the cause of antibiotic resistance in humans, how to get rid of puppy mills, the best training rewards for a puppy, are pit bulls really dangerous, do rodents need to gnaw, a quick way to house break a new puppy and several dozen more surprise truths about pets and animals in general. So buy the book and get the answers to the questions above and many more that will surprise you.
