Did you know that vets have concluded that dogs have 10 times the hearing capabilities of people? No wonder they are highly sensitive and reactive to things that go “boom” and not so “usual” loud noises
I just finished a post on my site Chi-Lightful about giving yourself the gift of the “present”…of which I am now receiving from my new kitten Rumi (and my cat Makana) right now! I am the joyful recipient of Rumi now growing up.
It’s the start of summer…Poppies are blooming! I call this time the California Gold Rush…Poppies are the “essence of True Gold”!
The little native CA wildflower has the healing essence that Native Americans used to relieve headaches, toothaches and as an aid for sleep. Now for animals and people some of it’s “essence” qualities helps in calming anxiety and giving one confidence to be the “who” they are!
Are you under the spell of a new little fur life? Springtime energy is flowing from all the little new fur folks coming into the world. Kitten and puppy season is in full swing. With this new life comes endless energy, the “chi” of play and discovery. For the little ones, play is the way they not only develop their bodies, it is the way they learn about their environment, their homes, their people.
Gung Hay Fat Choy. Happy Chinese New Year of the Green Horse! The new moon of January 31, 2014 marked a brand new year bringing with it the strong positive energy (a favored animal of the Chinese) of the horse. Powerful and competitive, this will be a quick paced and spirited year.
Holiday time is a speedy wonderful and magical ride filled with all sorts of goodies, warm hugs, all topped with a “dash” of stress. For our fur folks it can be a time of major change, bewildering travel, or lonely separation from their people. Opportunities to sample some pretty unhealthy holiday “people” goodies, tree ornaments, stocking stuffers, exotic plants, and sprinkled with visiting strangers to their kingdoms.
What could be more positive and unconditional than the love your pet shows you? An animal (just like a person) is operating by and from birth with its original positive nature, knowing that all is good in every way. For an animal “no” actually means a big “yes”. They do not understand the negative side of things until a person connects the word to an abusive action, temper, or physical anger that is targeted toward the animal when an animal shows an unwanted behavior.
