Work With Nature Rather Than Against

Work With Nature Rather Than Against

What most people don’t seem to realize is that there ARE consequences to using any type of harmful chemical. In this case, by most likely eating a poisoned rodent of some kind, this wild owl in the video below suffered the consequences wrought by humans of course. By putting out this poison (and this is only one of many that this happens to), we have once again greatly interfered in causing grave harm and imbalance. PLEASE I ask you to stop using these POISONS. They affect more than what you are targeting. Rodents are a necessary part...

Life is a Dance

Life is a Dance

As we close out yet another year, we often look back to reflect on what has transpired – the good, the bad and the ugly. Unfortunately, we all too often focus on the bad and the ugly cancelling out all the good in our minds and attitudes. For the sake of our animals, let’s, together, begin to flip this to focusing primarily on the good. I read a quote recently that stated, “If you stumble, make it part of the dance,” by HealthPlace.com – as another more known quote states, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning...

Being Grounded

Being Grounded

What does that mean to be grounded? What does that have to do with the health of our dogs? Animals? Us? Why should we even care? We are all electrical beings. If we aren’t, we are dead. The earth has its own magnetic pull and vibrational frequency. What changed for our health started with the advent of rubber soled shoes and plastic. For animals it was the same (in the case of dogs) as well as metal in the case of horses. Plus we started keeping our pets indoors more with less outdoor exposure – which we ALL need for our health...

Canine Oily Massage

Canine Oily Massage

King does this every time when Schatzie is getting her weekly Oily massage. He gets his first because he runs and gets on the towel first lol – he LOVES his massages! He moans and sighs all during it. Schatzie just totally relaxes and goes to sleep. At first neither were sure about these massages. We had King four months before Schatzie so by then he was used to receiving them from me and has grown to really enjoy them. Schatzie on the other hand was so stiff whenever I would handle her initially. She apparently hadn’t been...

Carnivore Scavenger Extraordinaire

Posted by on 3:25 pm in Dog Nutrition, Features, Raw Feeding, Schatzie's Views | Comments Off on 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. Additionally,...

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! 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...
