Being a Dog

Humans always taking photos of me and King…especially when we’re just being a dog! So here are some instances people since you’re the ones reading this… The Smoky Days of September All the smoke in the air with all these fires so my eyes are even more runny, then to top it off you wait until after I eat so I look chubby…then you wait until I’m lying on this old raggedy bed outside THEN you take a photo and expect me to be happy about it??? Paw-lease what were you thinking??? I’m a beauty queen mom...

Nail Trimming

Nail Trimming

Well it’s time for us to finally talk about NAIL TRIMMING. Just keep in mind I’m not a groomer but I do know the importance of regular grooming and most definitely includes nail trimming. Together, King, Schatzie and I are going to share our individual views on this whole process. Actually I think allowing King and Schatzie to share is the wisest way to go since they are after all the dogs enduring the process. I’ll chime in with some tidbits and photos at the end of this post. King: When I first came to live with my humans...

This Skin Thing

This Skin Thing

Let me tell you about this skin thing and some cool things that have happened with me recently. Some of you may know from reading Mom’s posts on me, Bubba King, that I had an issue with my right knee back in November of 2015. It was never properly diagnosed – the veterinarians (yes as in two) merely guessed at what was wrong. My humans weren’t impressed – they never much are by them, woof! Anyway, I also have had various skin challenges primarily under my chin for a couple of reasons. One I like to dig into all of the...

We Are Carnivore Predators!

We Are Carnivore Predators!

On a recent early morning walk with my Carolina Dog, Schatzie, she discovered yet another of the buried rotting treasures the coyotes leave behind for “later“. Schatzie can sniff out these treasures all the time…and sometimes she does find a baby rabbit – either dead already or dying. This is nature people. It really is. While I don’t relish her finds she certainly does! You’re going to really see that she isn’t only a carnivore predator but an accomplished scavenger as well. Below is what Schatzie...

A Story Paints a Picture, Don’t It?

A Story Paints a Picture, Don’t It?

This isn’t going to be one of my “raw feeding” or “pesticides cause harm” type posts, I’m just warning you up front. As the listed categories for this post imply, this is going to be a storytelling, faith-based post – you’ve been notified! It’s a “story paints a picture” thing. The question BEGS why would I do that on a canine naturopathy oriented blog? Because this is my life now and I realized completely today that I no longer can keep them even remotely separate. Keep what...

Same Species Different Personalities

Same Species Different Personalities

Right now I have two dogs. Both are American breeds. Both are, of course, canine carnivores – Canis lupus familiaris. (The domestic dog is a member of genus Canis that forms part of the wolf-like canids, and is the most widely abundant carnivore. Information extracted from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog). I had to stress CARNIVORE lol. While they are both the same species with the same genus and same species needs, they are vastly different in their personalities. Schatzie, my female Carolina Dog has a thick, luxurious coat (much...

Lifestyle Not Method

Lifestyle Not Method

Since I began this naturopathic journey my passion has been to share and teach on LIFESTYLE.  As my previous newsletters, blog posts, articles, videos and audios have all stated naturopathy is ALL about LIFESTYLE not about a method. My dog Shadrach led me to this lifestyle and I’ve been moving forward with it ever since and sharing with as many as will receive this truth. In fact, because of doing all of this for Shadrach, my husband and I began to reap major benefits ourselves. I was able to release weight as well as receive...

Vibrant Health for our Dogs

Vibrant Health for our Dogs

Recently I was thinking back into my “why” for beginning this journey into natural health – for animals and us. Of course as I’ve shared so many times it began with my amazing dog Shadrach. He helped me learn for his sake. I had to learn to let go of the fear of change that was locking us into a cycle of illness and also frustration with it all. My desire was and is VIBRANT health for my dogs! The interesting thing is that my journey began in earnest because of my deep desire to help Shadrach. In the process of that I...
