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...

Shaving Your Dog’s Fur

Shaving Your Dog’s Fur

I know a lot of people shave down their dogs in summer that have heavy coats. Did you know that coat provides insulation both against the heat as well as the cold? I’m sharing this a little late in the summer, but it holds just as true for winter as far as a matted coat is concerned. Dogs NEED their coats just as they are so please take heed on this for their sakes. Groomers often don’t have a choice but to shave down the dogs when they come to them so horribly matted. So the responsibility is ours to see to it that they...

American Bully PULLER Action!

American Bully PULLER Action!

Recently I was asked by the creators of the Puller dog toy if I would review this toy for them – as in get some Puller action from my American Bully. So they sent me a couple of them to test out King. King’s breed LOVES this type of play especially since they were designed to do this very thing. My female Schatzie (Carolina Dog) isn’t a bit interested lol but she gets tail waggin’ happy when she watches us play with King! King immediately took to the toy and you can see in one photo he was proudly displaying it while...
