The Digging Garden

We all know it’s in a dog’s nature to DIG right? At least if we don’t we ought to KNOW that…it’s sort of a duh ya know! What I have always done – well after Shadrach came along that is lol – is have a place in my yard where they CAN dig. At my former home I called it the Digging Garden lol. To help my dogs learn they can dig there but not dig up the grass is I just stop them in the act. Then I take this dog over to the place where they CAN dig and start digging using their paws – seriously I...

Those DOGgone Oily Dogs and Flies

Recently on Facebook and Instagram I posted a different kind of photo of me and my dogs during our weekly aroma massage. It got attention and in fact a couple of people asked me if I’d be willing to let them be a “flies” (as in on the wall lol) of my weekly massage. Here is what I wrote that got people to ask me this (the photo is the one with this post): Every week my dogs receive an aroma massage. Every week is unique because I never know what positions they’ll take or how they’ll respond to me due to my own attitude or...

Integrative Medicine – What Does It Mean?

Integrative Medicine – What Does It Mean?

The following article, Pet Owners Turning to Acupuncture for Their Furry Friends, shines a spotlight on how pet owners are seeking alternative care for their pets. In the USA only veterinarians are allowed to perform acupuncture as it is considered a form of “invasive surgery“- even though it isn’t surgery but rather a method to open the body’s energy meridians much as acupressure does sans needles. Many veterinarians who tout themselves as integrative or holistic veterinarians are merely adding in natural modalities...

Animals Can Self-Medicate

Animals Can Self-Medicate

When allowed access to their natural environments, animals can self-medicate even if that can’t be proven scientifically since it is subjective – at least according to science it is anyway. To sidetrack a bit it always amazes me how humans feel the need to have to “prove” the intelligence and cognition of animals. It is our arrogance thinking that we are the only intelligent, cognitive creatures on the planet that has gotten us into all of this trouble in the first place…believing or thinking we can somehow improve upon nature’s intelligent...

Who Cares?

Who Cares?

I haven’t shared one of our gorgeous sunrises in a while so here a set from October 2 and October 13. These sunrises wowed me in the real! ☀️☀️☀️. I take these photos while we (my husband, me and our two dogs) are out for our morning walk/exercise in the fresh air honoring at least two of the eight laws of health every day. We get sunshine (another law of health) full on also in the summer at the same time.  I wanted to share them with you because this is such a beautiful time of day and we get to just marvel at the Master Artist’s...

When Our Dogs Leave

When Our Dogs Leave

These are three podcasts I did over the years, the last one most recently when my closet friend, Bre Altherr lost her primary Teacher/Heart Dog, Merlin two weeks ago. Here is an edited version of what I wrote to her just this week: We miss so many things when they’re gone. Then eventually all you can remember are all those good, funny, loving times and be grateful for the time you had even as you still miss their physical presence. So you do things like create classes written in first dog by one of them. Or you write their stories that...

Cats Prove What THEY Want To Eat

Cats Prove What THEY Want To Eat

Okay I know this is about cats and this is a DOG blog, but whether people want to know this or not, dogs ARE just as obligate as cats and their needs haven’t changed a bit either. The only thing that HAS changed is the insanity of mass marketing and the entities that stand to gain from pushing the “omnivore agenda”. So I thought I’d share a post I wrote a while back on our former school’s blog so you all can learn this if you didn’t know it already… The interesting thing about this study is they...

Flea & Tick Products – Poisoning More than Pests

Flea & Tick Products – Poisoning More than Pests

It seems like it’s become a year round thing nowadays for slathering pets in toxic pesticides in order to control fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, etc. Not only is that not a good idea, it can be very detrimental to the overall long-term health of our pets, not to mention the immediate adverse effects that can happen! If the instructions say to wear gloves when applying to your pet and to take extra caution throwing away the containers of these toxins, why then do we think it’s okay to apply this to our pets? It does not make any sense. This...

Observing Nature

Observing Nature

A couple of mornings ago I found both of these almost next to one another. The feather is from a little sand owl who has her nest in a mesa cleft we walk past each morning. She flew off with her meal (mouse or squirrel) as we came upon her and left a feather in the process. 🦅 I don’t know what the other is but it matched the feather and feels like a sand dollar in texture. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m sharing because I find things out here on our desert walk 🌵 all the time that just intrigue me. I see them all as little gifts from God he leaves like a little...

Naturopaths, chiropractors and the medical profession

Naturopaths, chiropractors and the medical profession

The problem is more the medical governing bodies rather than the medical professionals themselves, however the training the doctors, veterinarians, etc., are receiving is geared towards indoctrination in the belief that natural health practitioners are the enemy – not of health but of their bottom line! Which leads us to believe that health for yourselves and your animals is not what the conventional medical community is concerned with but rather treating your inevitable diseases if you follow the advice of the status quo. The following...
