My First Bath

This post was written in “first dog” by Meshach the Great Dane puppy.

This video is from my first day, August 7th, with my new human family. My first human Mom, Barbie Barrett of Zona Danes, and my grandma Terry, traveled with me and all my siblings from Arizona where I was born and grew up, to Oklahoma – home of my canine mom Marlo. One of my sister’s stayed in OK with our SisCo Danes family. And then I got dropped off in NM with my forever humans.

Needless to say I had some road travel grime on me and so my new human Mom decided to test me in FOUR of the laws of health:

1. Fresh air – we were outside after all and I was breathing it in fast bepaws I was a little nervous since I didn’t know them yet but Mom kept on talking to me so it was okay. She also wrapped me in a towel afterwards and laid down with me in my dog couch, woof!

2. Sunshine – as you can see it was in full shine as it most often is in NM.

3. Pure water – my pool has no chemicals in it and it is pure water sans chlorine and fluoride, YIPPEE!

4. Trust – trust in the principles of naturopathy, trust in the laws of health, and learning to trust my new humans and build relationship, woof!

Even better news to MOI is that we naturally reared, raw-fed dogs RARELY need to have a bath bepaws quite frankly we do not smell or stink as a general rule. I am so relieved to know this, woof!

As you can see, no animals were harmed in the filming of this video, woof! Um I just got wet hehe.

Have a pawsitively tail waggin’, NATURALLY healthy day, woof!

My Big Boy Walk

This post was written in “first dog” by Meshach the Great Dane puppy.

I’m practicing the laws of health, woof! I go for my Big Boy Walk everyday. Exercise is one of the eight laws of health and fresh air is another. So whenever I go for my walk I am practicing at least two of the eight laws of health!

Mom and Dad take me in the early morning between 6AM and 6:30AM bepaws even though summer is winding down in our neck of the woods, it is still too hot for us dogs to be out in the heat of the day.

Mom says she sees humans taking their poor dogs out for walks and even running them in the heat of the day – poor dogs! I’m glad my humans are aware that I need to be out in the cool of the morning.

Well that’s all for today humans, I’ll be back soon bepaws Mom keeps taking LOTS of photos and videos, woof!
