    A Prickly Problem

    We don't see these little guys very often, sadly more often that not we see a dead hedgehog on the road and never get to set eyes on a live one. now I wouldn't say I am an activist as such, I enjoy country sports and people often seem to think that this makes me a murderous and horrid human.... How wrong you are. I truly believe that any wildlife that needs a helping hand should get a helping hand, regardless of species, status or anything else. Currently the plight of our beautiful and spiky little hedgehogs is really tugging at my heart strings.

    A Perfect Guide to All-Breed Dog Grooming

    A Perfect Guide to All-Breed Dog Grooming

    What would be your first impression be If you're walking down the street or in the countryside and see a dog with matted hair, scruffy and unkempt? You would often regard the owner of that dog to be irresponsible and less caring; you would more than likely avoid any communication or contact. I for one would not like to be looked at as someone who just does not care about my faithful friend and companion. Surely it would be better that you give regular care to your pet and be mindful of the things that are needed to keep your dog in good shape, happy, healthy, well-fed, and a companion for years to come.

    Two Golden Nuggets

    Two Golden Nuggets

    If you had asked me two years ago, “Katie, would you ever have a cat?” I probably would have laughed. Now, I have two. Two beautiful golden nuggets of joy that I simply cannot get enough of. Every morning I wake up to their purrrrs and every night I fall asleep to their cuddles. I’m sure everyone says this about their own pets, but I believe I have the most amazing cats in the world. I am officially a crazy cat lady at the age of 30.

    My Groundhog, Ciabatta

    My Groundhog, Ciabatta

    After the untimely passing of our last tabby cat when I was 12 years old, my father decided there would be no more pets living in our household. No more new felines, no more cockatiels, not even a hypoallergenic dog that wouldn't affect our allergies. His primary reasoning for the ruling was a materialistic one. If we got a new animal, no matter what it was, it would tear up our living room furniture - just like the cats did.

    Upstairs Dog

    Upstairs Dog

    Amid the clamor of New York City, in a silent, dark and dank basement, a baby canine’s chest barely lifted as she struggled to breathe. She was wasted, withered, with crusty skin sagging over her protruding ribs. Clumps of black fur created a pattern of splotches over her emaciated body. And heavy, metal brackets were duct taped to her left front leg. She couldn’t stand. She couldn’t move. Stuck on her flank on the cold cement floor as cucarachas crawled in and out of her wounds, nibbling on her flesh. And fleas and infections ravaged what was left of her.

    I woke up when I felt something jump off the bed. I sat up with a jolt thinking it was my cattle dog x, Bobbie, wanting to be let out as she has done every morning since staying at my partner’s parents' house for the last few weeks. But when I looked down, Bobbie was still asleep. So, what had jumped off my bed? The dream I had been having before I had been awoken was fading from my mind slowly, so I could recall what it was about.

I’ll recount three of my favourite encounters. I’ll leave the others to another story.

    The Heiress's Treasure:

    There was once an heiress who lived on her estate and whose greatest treasure was not the exquisite inanimate things she owned, but the sweetest little puppy she cared for in her old age. The heiress had the most elegant old blue silk pillow, where the little puppy would lay, with tassels mixed with golden threads and padparadscha sapphires embellishing each end. Each day, she would caress the little puppy’s curly hair, speak to it affectionately, and hum to it soothing melodies.

    When you meet my Lion head rabbit you are definitely meeting a bunny with an attitude. She is full of spunk and free spirit. And if you are doing something she does not like she will certainly let you know that. She is also so sweet and she loves to cuddle. I got her from a breeder about 3 months ago. She was 8 weeks old when I got her so I have been raising her from a baby. I had my choice between a larger Rex rabbit and her. She was so adorable that I chose her to take home with me and we have been friends every since.

    The Life and Death of Animals Equals

    The mythology of our ancestors has always shown us the consistent presence of animals throughout these cultures. However, their roles and relationships to humans change as society is developed, moving from hunter-gatherer communities to villages with farms. As this happens, the people of these cultures begin to separate themselves from animals. Animals lose their importance and become seen as “other”. The development of villages throughout these various cultures lead to humans seeing themselves as god-like in comparison to animals.

    Top 4 Oral Flea Treatments For Your Pet Dog

    Summers or spring the moist and warm weather is just so ideal for fleas and ticks to mate, multiply and stay cocooned so as to linger around even in other seasons. This is how these pesky creatures build their community and spread various diseases like Bartonella, Allergies, Tapeworm Infections, Anemia, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Fever, etc. As they can stay in the surroundings for over 6 months, removing them completely from the pets and household thus becomes a quest for a pet owner. It is certainly a herculean task if the pet loves to roam outdoors, in the bushes or woods as they are the breeding grounds of these parasites.
