The Why Not the What

The Why Not the What


Posted By on Nov 20, 2018

This is the presentation by Simon Sinek that this post is based upon – I watched it a couple of years ago for the first time and have since watched it a few more times. It bears repeating to remind us of our WHY: It made me really think about what moves me to continue in my work as an animal naturopath. More importantly it pushes me back to WHY I started in the first place. Let me take you back with me in a shortened version. 🐕...

The Digging Garden

We all know it’s in a dog’s nature to DIG right? At least if we don’t we ought to KNOW that…it’s sort of a duh ya know! What I have always done – well after Shadrach came along that is lol – is have a place in my yard where they CAN dig. At my former home I called it the Digging Garden lol. To help my dogs learn they can dig there but not dig up the grass is I just stop them in the act. Then I...

I haven’t shared one of our gorgeous sunrises in a while so here a set from October 2 and October 13. These sunrises wowed me in the real! ☀️☀️☀️.

A couple of mornings ago I found both of these almost next to one another. The feather is from a little sand owl who has her nest in a mesa cleft we walk past each morning. She flew off with her meal (mouse or squirrel) as we came upon her and left a feather in the process. 🦅 I don’t know what the other is but it matched the feather and feels like a sand dollar in texture. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m sharing because I find things out here on our desert...

Speaking LIFE!

Speaking LIFE!


Posted By on Aug 6, 2018

I was laughing pretty hard a LOT this particular day in the photo – which was a really good thing considering all that had transpired over the previous few months where I had been doing nothing but crying. Nothing earth shattering to most but to me it was life changing. I’m going to share with you in a couple of posts, about speaking life – over ourselves and our dogs! and Okay this is going to be loooonggg so grab a...

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...
