Carnivore Scavenger Extraordinaire

Carnivore Scavenger Extraordinaire

Last month Schatzie (my Carolina Dog) and I were on our morning walk. At some point during that walk she discovered another dead rotting thing – her way of supplementing her diet with the correct enzymes and probiotics, to which I approve of course. She is very resourceful. She had to be prior to coming to us because she was fed cheap, nasty kibble. She survived by honing her hunting skills as well as her scavenger skills. That hasn’t waned since she came to us – after all her carnivore skills were a necessity so she...

Promote Wellness To Avoid Treating Disease

Promote Wellness To Avoid Treating Disease

“The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitudes of their minds.” ~Albert Schweitzer As animal naturopaths, we know and teach that no matter what the dis-ease of the animal’s body (or mind), no matter what “label” (aka diagnosis) a veterinarian might put on it, that focusing on the symptoms as anything more than a road map to guide us will NEVER facilitate healing or wellness in our animals. Our focus is always to promote health over treating disease. Here is an excerpt from our...

EMFs and Our Dogs’ Health

EMFs and Our Dogs’ Health

This topic caught my attention years ago – way before mainstream was taking a nod in this direction. Sometimes I hate that I can see things in advance because it takes a while before people don’t think you’re so crazy anymore lol. But all kidding aside, this is a very serious topic: EMFs (electromagnetic fields) and the health of our dogs.   When I first began using the available “protection” ten years ago, they were big, clunky, unappealing, and VERY expensive but at least effective to a degree....

I Hatez Taking Photos!

I Hatez Taking Photos!

I rrrrreally hatez taking photos, woof! I’m a suffering bully. Mom is always taking photos of me. She thinks I’m cute but I’m a manly sort of dog. I hang out with my Dad and follow him everywhere. Why? Bepaws I’m a guy’s kind of dog. So saying I’m cute and taking lots of photos of me isn’t fun. Mom says she has to capture as many moments with me and Schatzie as possible and not just to share with all of you. She says it’s for memories to watch us as we age. Schatzie is already older than me by...

Being a Dog

Humans always taking photos of me and King…especially when we’re just being a dog!

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...
