Manydogs will be posting pictures of spiders now Jimmy
I add 2 Tbsp of plain unsweetened yogurt to their morning kibble for the probiotics. It is great for digestion, and good gut flora, and it boosts the immune system, so helps fight infections and allergy symptoms.
I give them Omega Oils in the form of Salmon Oil or Coconut Oil on their evening kibble. Omega Oils are very good for the joints, skin, coat, and also for the brain.
I add 1 Tnsp. Of Apple Cider Vinegar to their drinking water, there are many health benefits to ACV. It is a natural anti inflammatory, it kills the bad bacteria in your body so boosts the immune system, and it balances the Ph levels of the blood, there are many other health benefits to ACV. There is a great article on The Benefits Of ACV, you can find it on the Home page.
I don't give my babies any store bought treats other than the Fruitables, they have too many chemicals and additives. They get half a banana each twice a week, I give them fruits like cut up apples, blueberries, strawberries, and watermelon. Don't give him grapes, they are toxic to dogs. I also give them cooked vegetables like carrots, green beans, and broccoli. You can make homemade treats with natural ingredients like oats, peanut butter, yogurt, there are many good recipes on line.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
Just losing them in any way, too soon...that is like in the next fifty years...
Chumley, but I don't even want to SEE a PICTURE of a spider!!! nanananana!
Okay, I will never post a picture again.............
“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
My biggest fear is definitely someone stealing Ruckus. It's so bad that we take him everywhere we travel. Except for leaving him with my dad (who would love to steal him from me, but hey he isn't a stranger!), we've never left Ruckus with anyone else overnight. I've left him for the day with a friend who has a little pointer mix that he adores, but I just can't bring myself to find a dog sitter and leave him for the weekend. It's bad and I need to get over it at some point and get comfortable with someone, but Ruckus is so friendly and people are always saying how they'd love to have a bulldog but bulldogs are so expensive or how much they'd love a dog with Ruckus's temperment.....so I just can't shake the idea that someone might try to nab him.
For me it's that I won't be there for them when it's their time... no matter the reason. I just want to be with them, give them comfort and keep them comfortable, that's all I care about.
I'm also terrified of them getting stolen, here in South Africa the chance of them ending up in good hands are slim. When people ask about them I always mention that they are neutered/spayed and have health issues.
You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.
My biggest fear is dog attacks on Meatball. He's so friendly with other dogs that I fear one day the other dog won't be so nice!
My greatest fear is that something will happen to my husband and myself and Goob will be without us (death or rapture:-D). Thank God, I have many family members who love him and would gladly take him in...(some want to take him now and I'm still breathing)! They also know how much care he needs and I know they will continue it.
My second greatest fear is REALLY spiders! We have found several brown recluses in the house and it TERRIFIES me to think that Good could possibly get bit while we are gone or while he is sleeping. In California, he slept in his crate but now that we are in Tennessee, the spiders are such a problem, he sleeps in bed with us.
I don't ever worry about Goob getting stolen. He is not the friendliest guy in the world and when people stop to admire him, he shows them that it's best if they keep their distance. He is a car stopper for sure but his stranger danger runs deep.
