Here are some interesting facts about this new course, ReBARKably SCENT-Able Canine for you to PAWnder: Continue reading ReBARKable and SCENTSable Canines

Worthy of the Truth

Schatzie_King_11192015While this is a “mixed bag” (at least it’s not a bag of kibble!) blog post, I felt it needed to be so the message would be REALLY heard because it is about how worthy of the truth are our dogs.

Let me start out with my short and goofy “Weird Animal Girl“scenario first because I think it shows how important, precious and special our relationships with our dogs are to us. Continue reading Worthy of the Truth

Quail Call Zoomies

King_telling_itMy crazy house lol…last Thursday as I was cleaning house and listening to music I had all sorts of “thoughts” running through my head. It was a gorgeous day and so I am thinking it just put me in a lighter mood. That always helps when cleaning house. Well out of the blue I recalled to mind the calls quail make to each other although I rarely hear them do that during the winter – must be a mating call. It has a very unique sound to it and it is actually, to me anyway, quite lovely. Continue reading Quail Call Zoomies

Klaus the Rottweiler

This is such a fantastic story I just had to share it with all of you! My very good friend, Bre Altherr and her husband Chris own a boarding, grooming, training franchise facility in northern Indiana – Sit Means Sit. Bre also happens to be one of our students at the American Council of Animal Naturopathy. She takes every opportunity she can to encourage her clients to learn about and implement proper nutrition for our canine carnivore companions. This short story is about Klaus the Rottweiler. His photos say it all!

In the Mist Came Clarity

Sunrise_Fog_12302015_1Our weather in NM for the last few days has been VERY wintery but I’ve experienced such blessings and clarity in the mist of the fog and snow.

It has felt like Schatzie and I were the only souls about each morning. The first foggy morning, she snuck up on a flock of quail in the brush and they certainly woke me up from my deep contemplation as they flew en masse up out of the brush lol – who needs coffee!! 😂😜 I love watching her though as she inspects things, marks territory (high up I might add to trump coyotes I am sure and other dogs), and chases rabbits. Continue reading In the Mist Came Clarity

Spying on Our Pets

12360397_10156283292995591_5386782577990281878_nA couple of weeks ago I shared a post with you about a pet spy camera that I was asked to review – What Is your Pet Up To When You Are Gone?. My husband and I will be using it to keep an eye on our dogs when we are not home – spying on them if you will.

It is SUPER easy to set this Vimtag camera up using an app and your computer router. Super easy and then after set up you can set it up wherever you like, in fact you can purchase several and set them up in various places. You can check in on your pets through your phone app. Continue reading Spying on Our Pets

Special on Animals Taught Me That Book

51RYRxVpx1L._SX312_BO1,204,203,200_This is a short post giving you a heads up about a special I am offering on my book Animals Taught Me That. We lost our publisher this year – they went out of business suddenly I am sad to say.

So in order to regroup, I decided to get the Kindle version of the book resisted with a new cover. While I did not revise the book to include my farewell to Shadrach my awesome Neapolitan Mastiff, my Dane Meshach, or my two current dogs Schatzie my Carolina Dog and King my American Bully, they will be included in my next book coming out in 2016. Continue reading Special on Animals Taught Me That Book

Just a little bit of deceptive advertising in pet food?

800px-Scoop_your_poopYa think? But of course they are allowed just a little deception in pet food advertising aren’t they? Allowed to embellish just a LITTLE? Ahem, well I suppose if you have deep pockets and all, you are allowed. BUT if you share natural health, and REAL food you are not allowed…not even a tiny bit, nope. AND to top it off natural health practitioners are the ones attacked and labeled as pseudo scientists. Oh what a tangled web weave.
