For awhile now (probably due to the whole last year in part), it’s felt like I was flatlining. NO, not ME dying but the work I so love. I’m keeping it real here ya’ll. So I decided to take a break both on the blog and the podcast. I just kept doing other things like creating classes, editing audios, and reading posts as I shared privately with people who had questions on their own or their dogs health-related things....

Rest is Courage?


Posted By on Feb 5, 2021

It seems lately REST, is the Law of Health I’ve been rather fixated on. This time yet another aspect of that law came up for me. You know how many people find “one word” to focus on for an entire year to improve their lives? Well my word for this year, after seeking God on it, is “courage”. After doing a search for scripture references on it, I found that it is God’s rest that is our courage. Before...

Recently I wrote a post on how my husband and I have been working to help our very noise/vibrations reactive, young Carolina Dog, Ezra. That post is Dances With Dogs (a podcast is also available on that post).

The two dogs that I’ve had the absolute MOST fun playing this game with have been my former Neo Mastiff...

Check out my new sunbathing partner. When Ezra first got here (September 26, 2019 – almost a year ago now) he wasn’t at all fond of sunbathing in our hot, dry heat. He came from the mountains of TN with humid heat and it was warmer there in the mornings than here. Ezra is now officially a sunbathing dog. Every day that he can (just like me) he is out sunbathing, except he goes out multiple times per day just as my boy King does....

When we got Ezra, our Carolina Dog puppy, in September 2019 at nine weeks of age, little did we know how drastically he would change our lives…then the world changed too. I’ve danced around with all my previous dogs, but not Ezra. Let me back up a bit before I go into the dancing further… Ezra focused on the neighbor dogs I’ve learned some things about Ezra that I won’t share here as it wouldn’t...
