The Howling Game, Pt2

The Howling Game, Pt2


Posted By on Apr 16, 2018

This is the Howling Game (on video this time) that King and I do all the time. I had to stealth videotape because if he sees it he’ll stop lol. So sadly it is facing sideways. Sometimes this game can last five (5) minutes or longer. The more in depth and varied my howls are, the more his are too. King also won’t do this game if my husband is home or if he thinks my husband is in the house. He is Donnie’s sidekick but he...

The bully life can be RUFF πŸ˜‚πŸ’–πŸ˜Ž – this isn’t his best side lol. He’d be so embarrassed if he knew I took this photo. Full breakfast belly (raw fed dogs LOVE their food!). King doesn’t have to be told to follow the laws of health, sunbathing is one of his favorite pastimes as you can see! Since King’s CCL tear and wearing a brace he’s been able to gain back almost his full exercise daily so he’s...

This personal journey on CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament) tears/ruptures in dogs part one, is going to be a LONG post. It dates back to November 2015 and features our very special “little man” King, our American Bully. The CCL is an important ligament in the stifle joint (knee) of the dog, so when it tears or ruptures that results in partial or complete joint instability, pain, and lameness. Unfortunately it is happening to...

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...

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...

Same Species Different Personalities


Posted By on May 30, 2017

Right now I have two dogs. Both are American breeds. Both are, of course, canine carnivores – Canis lupus familiaris. (The domestic dog is a member of genus Canis that forms part of the wolf-like canids, and is the most widely abundant carnivore. Information extracted from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog). I had to stress CARNIVORE lol. While they are both the same species with the same genus and same species needs, they are...
