    The Basics Of Dog Park Etiquette

    The Basics Of Dog Park Etiquette

    Dog parks get a lot of mixed reviews. Some pet owners won’t go near them while others take their dogs to one daily. And it’s kind of sad really because they should provide the perfect opportunity to let your pooch get in some playtime, exercise, and socialization. Unfortunately, that’s not always how it works out.

    Dragon Eggs

    Dragon Eggs

    I work for a children’s science entertainment company. I do a lot of the administrative work and also teach in after-school programs all across the city. The kids call me Lab Rat Kat, and I feel like a celebrity when I walk into schools. I’m wearing a lab coat, I’m getting high fives, and people are cheering my name. Okay, only two of those three things are true… And that’s because I don’t put my lab coat on until class starts! I love my job. Pre-coronavirus, we had an office where we also hosted birthday parties, and in the office we had a pet. His name is Smaug, and he is a bearded dragon. He lives in a 40-gallon tank, eats mostly leaves, and I love him dearly. Some people have work wives; I had a work dragon.

    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

    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.

    Zoey girl

    Zoey girl

    I adopted Zoey girl as a rescue, fell in love with her almost immediately although there were some tense moments of hesitation. The border collie breed is extremely active and she acted like a puppy even at an adult age. I thought what am I getting myself into?! I didn’t know much about her, so we had to get to know each other. When I first got her, she was very active and full of energy. Mellowed out as she got older. Also learned that border collies are smart, oh she was. She was fairly easy to retrain . One thing I learned about her is that she prefers men, probably part of her history but Zoey and I still get along great.

    Adopt Vs Shop:

    Adopt Vs Shop:

    After debating the pros and cons of getting a furry friend to welcome into your home, you must then decide whether to adopt or shop. This decision is never an easy one to make, with many potential concerns associated with both. There are an abundance of articles and social media pages out there that give their opinions on what is morally the right and wrong thing to do, with many arguing adopting an animal from a shelter should always be preferred. However, the answer is not this straightforward and is entirely your decision. Recently, there have been reports that dog rehoming charity Dog’s Trust has seen an increase in people giving up their dogs as lockdown eases, predicting numbers as high as tens of thousands as owners realise they can no longer look after their pup.

    My First Time Around a Mastiff Dog

    My First Time Around a Mastiff Dog

    As I sit here, I’m house sitting and dog sitting for my best friend. There are two dogs, a small little bulldog named, Maverick (yes from Top Gun) and an 8-month-old mastiff named, Wilma. This is my first time being around a Mastiff. Now; she is technically small to be a mastiff, but only because she is still a puppy and she was the runt of the litter. Like I said; technically. To me; she’s freaking huge! I have to admit that I’ve never been around a dog this big. I was nervous about being left alone with her for three days right after meeting her. The size of this breed and the look of that squished face, is enough to make anyone nervous or even scared being around a mastiff.

    Cat for You

    The most interesting tattoos seem to have a story or association with a person, place, thing, or memory that is forever etched as an illustration. For someone who doesn’t have a single tattoo, I am fascinated by others’ accounts of what the symbolism on their bodies represent for them, the “why” behind each work of art. Surely there are those who may not have explanations for their tattoos – maybe they just chose certain designs for pure aesthetic qualities – but the tattoos that do carry stories for the people who welcome them onto their bodies like canvases, those hold a special quality worth more than 1,000 words.

    The Bottom of the Planet

    I celebrated the beginning of my 42nd orbit of the Sun by visiting Santa Barbara, CA where my lovely friend treated me to a reiki session. I’d never even thought of reiki before but since it was already set up for the day of my birth I was kind of looking forward to it. That morning I found myself in the dentist’s chair and returned home in time for my session with a numb face. Not to worry, my reiki therapist assured me it was fine, my face was not needed for the session. I knew my therapist was only told two things about me: my name is Amber and today is my birthday. As the session progressed she was saying things that really hit home, she called out my parental relationships to a tee. Then as she passed over my lower legs she made a startled noise and laughed a little. I asked what that meant and she told me she has seen spirit animals in other sessions and only a few have been birds but just now she swore a penguin leapt out at her. This made me laugh and I admitted to her I was going to work in Antarctica in just a few months.

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.
