Lessons We can Learn from Our Pet Dog

We humans assume that we hold the key to all knowledge to make our lives much simpler and happier, searching for all the answers to our problems in material stuff. What we forget is that there are things beyond the material layer where the real happiness and real contentment lies. Living in the artificial layer for too long has made us forgetful of the right spirit to live. But you can find that essence of life right in your home, in the lifestyle of your adorable pet dog. Dogs have even…

My dog keeps shaking his head and scratching his ear. What's going on?

I find two major causes of headshaking and scratching: food allergy, or need of a chiropractic adjustment. This bold statement is based on assuming there are no fleas, and no ear mites. Assuming there are no critters, and if the ears are clean and smooth on inspection all the way down to the eardrum reveals no…

Vegetarian Diets for Dogs and Cats?

One of the reasons that I really enjoy working with Patty Spitler so much is that she ALWAYS has an interesting idea for a pet related segment/story.  In the past couple of weeks, Patty had posted a question on her Facebook page asking folks who are vegetarian/vegan what they fed their pets.  This, of course, led to…
