Q&A: For those of you with children….?

Question by KS: For those of you with children….?
Did you wait until your baby was delivered before you realized you might want to know just a little bit about taking care of an infant? Or did you actually start doing some research and asking questions while you were pregnant?

Why on Earth would anyone wait until the dog has delivered puppies to start asking questions? I would think a couple of months during the pregnancy would be more than enough time to do some research….

*I know nothing about breeding…which is why my dogs are fixed. I ran a search just to see what kind of info came up. I got 15,800,000 hits for “dog pregnancy.”

Sponsoring Puppies To Become Guide Dogs

Sponsoring Puppies To Become Guide Dogs

Are you looking to make a difference to someone’s life but dont know how? If so then you could do a lot worse than sponsoring puppies to be guide dogs during the long process of training. Guide
puppy training is very expensive, and it takes new puppies around 24 months to learn everything they need to, so they really need your help. Youll be doing a fantastic service if you decide to sponsor one, as there are currently almost 10,000 blind people in need of helper dogs.

Anyone can sponsor a guide dog by providing their personal details and spending 5 pounds a month by direct debit, or as much as they can afford to give. All of your money will go to be spent on training the puppy you choose, so you can be sure its money well spent. Your puppy sponsorship will be a truly worthwhile experience, as you’ll be able to receive regular ‘pupdates on the progress he/she is making with training, as well as photos every few months so you can see how your puppy grows!. Another advantage of joining the puppy sponsorship scheme is that you’ll receive a special gift pack for your puppy that includes a puppy photo card, a photo album, a certificate, a calendar and a window sticker so you can show the world what you are doing.

Although you might want to visit your puppy and see it for yourself, this won’t be possible as there simply isn’t enough time to waste during its training period. Dont despair though, as the regular updates on your puppy’s progress will keep you informed. The training period and your sponsorship will continue for 2 years, and by the time that it is over, no doubt youll be very attached to your puppy, which is why well inform you about the new home your puppy is going to be sent to and the person he/she will help. By doing such a wonderful service, you will be giving a blind person independence and freedom, something to feel really good about. An arm of the Guide Dogs for Blind People Association, Sponsor a Puppy is a non-profit making organization. It has raised money for the provision of training guide dogs for the blind for many years, and it continues to be in need of your help. Make a huge difference to someones life in the most enjoyable way possible, sponsoring guide dogs brings with it a unique pleasure and enjoyment that you wont find anywhere else.

Some Dog Health Problems are Easy to Resolve

Some Dog Health Problems are Easy to Resolve

Puppies are generally a delight to have around. As long as you can cope with the chewing up of garments and expensive items, the huge energy and the occasional soiling as they become potty trained.

But that’s a small price to pay for the enthusiasm for life they have, for the fun that infectiously oozes from them.

You love him. He loves you. All is well with the world.

Until he falls sick.

Then your world crashes.

The first thing that springs to mind is what caused it? Was it something you did or didn’t do? Is it your fault? Were you too vigilant or not vigilant enough? Did you overprotect him or did you let him roam free too much?

Well, chances are that it was your fault.

But only by virtue of the fact you were doing as you were told, probably because you thought someone else knew better than you. Perhaps if you had listened to that little inner voice you sometimes hear, but mostly ignore, which told you different, things may not be this bad.

It’s never too late to learn.

And animals have an amazing way of ensuring you do indeed learn, mostly from your mistakes.

So now your puppy has grown up and has a few dog health problems.

The first possible cause to consider it what he is doing every day.


What are you feeding him?

Commercial dog food, as most holistic veterinarians have found, is the route cause of many, if not most, dog health problems.

Depending on the country, brand and era or manufacture, most commercial dog food looks something like this:

low grade meat by-products, often from a rendering plant cheap, health lacking filler such as paper, sawdust, sugar, nut shells, melamine indigestible isolated and synthetic nutrients toxic preservatives not permitted in human food

Sounds pretty unhealthy doesn’t it? Even one of those ingredients may be contributing to your dog health problem, but what if he was eating all four?

Although there are as many causes for dog health problems as there are dogs, by far the most common is the food you are feeding him.

By virtue of its daily consumption, healthy dog food, similar to the food his wild cousins eat, will go a long way to making his immune system strong, strong enough to fend off most dog health problems for years.

If you’re worried about the expense, don’t be. Feeding real food to your dog is as cheap as feeding commercial dog food. It may take a little more time, especially in the early stages as you are finding your feet, but just consider the fortune you save on veterinarian bills! They don’t come cheap by any means.
