Farewell My Beauty Queen

Schatzie girl, my beautiful Carolina Dog aka girl girl, my Beauty Queen, Running Wolf, my Pretty Girl, my June Bug has left us for her heavenly home. On January 10, 2019 she left us at approximately 2PM in the afternoon. I want to thank all of you who have already commented on my business page – it has meant so much to us. She arrived on a very hot summer June morning and left us on a cold January afternoon. Our hearts are broken – Donnie, King and I. King is having a very hard time with missing her but I am helping him to the...

Pharmaceuticals Create More Illness

Pharmaceuticals Create More Illness

More and more pharmaceuticals are for sale and if there isn’t a disease to go with the new drugs, well then the pharmaceutical companies invent one. Then they advertise it heavily so that people will either go to their doctors or their veterinarians requesting the drugs for themselves or their animals. Why? Because the advertising is so effective, making everyone believe they must have that symptom. However, there are now those in the industry who are blowing the whistle on all of this – although the industry will often just seek...

Challenging Gift from Heaven

Posted by on 2:34 pm in Dr. Kim's Views, Faith-Based, Feature, Human-Dog bond, Storytelling | Comments Off on Challenging Gift from Heaven

Challenging Gift from Heaven

This photo wasn’t planned or orchestrated. My American Bully, King does this whenever my husband and I pray or worship God. He is my challenging gift directly from heaven. Yes I was on my knees, face to the floor and he did this. When I felt him do it I grabbed my phone (which was on the floor also next to me which was a darn good thing) to capture it. He’s such a special boy, a gift from heaven for sure even with the challenges we’ve faced with him…I think maybe especially because of those challenges. He is a very intense, very...

Who Gives a Hoot?

Who Gives a Hoot?

During the month of June and part of July I was blessed to have two small desert owls living in a space I pass by on my morning walk/run with my Carolina Dog, Schatzie. I knew there were owls in the holes in the mesa cliffs but I had never had the privilege of seeing one up close before. During this short six week period, I passed by these two owls – well mostly the male was present as I am certain the female was attending to her offspring. Either he or both he and his mate would be roosting in some sagebrush that was high up enough I...

Experimentation or Healthcare?

Experimentation or Healthcare?

For the longest time people have placed their trust in the whole medical machine (yes I said machine as in Matrix) thinking they were working towards the “protection and safety” (nice propaganda words) of our pets so they could have long and healthy lives. The truth is quite distant from what people have believed. Sadly, from years of propaganda supporting the lie, people have come to believe that this grand experimentation IS healthcare. We (as in animal naturopaths and other natural animal health practitioners – natural...

Spending on pets is up, but are they healthier as a result?

Spending on pets is up, but are they healthier as a result?

On the surface this might show more concern and care for pets, and we’re certain that pet owners feel they are spending more because they believe they care more for their pets than previous generations may have. However, just because more money is being spent does not necessarily equate to better health or quality of life for pets. THE PROBLEM Here is a news item from 2014 on this topic – and not much has changed in fact it’s only gotten worse! http://news.medill.northwestern.edu/chicago/news.aspx?id=177553 Much of the extra...

The Why Not the What

Posted by on 11:27 am in Animal Naturopathy, Dr. Kim's Views, Storytelling, The DOGgone Truth | Comments Off on The Why Not the What

The Why Not the What

This is the presentation by Simon Sinek that this post is based upon – I watched it a couple of years ago for the first time and have since watched it a few more times. It bears repeating to remind us of our WHY: It made me really think about what moves me to continue in my work as an animal naturopath. More importantly it pushes me back to WHY I started in the first place. Let me take you back with me in a shortened version. 🐕 A dog named Shadow, we renamed Shadrach came into our lives right after the tragic loss of one of my cousins....

The Digging Garden

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

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...
