Weird Animal Girl – W.A.G.

I thought an explanation was in order for the “Weird Animal Girl” badge and category on my blog even though I did a blog post a while back titled “Quail Call Zoomies” explaining what it means. When I was in the sixth grade, my focus was still very much on animals not boys unlike most girls my age at that time. I grew up with four brothers (and a sister) so boys didn’t hold that much fascination for me…YET. At the time I was far, far more interested in animals as I had been my life long. If I wasn’t...

Stretching into Trust

Stretching into Trust

Going into my “Animal Girl” mode in this post to share with you some beautiful insights that our dogs can show us in their unique ways if we’ll but pay attention and allow them to do just that. This time we are stretching into trust with two simple canine lessons. I’ve shared many times how much my American Bully dog, King, has been able to teach and help me as regards my energy, my attitude, my emotions. In the beginning I thought I was helping him when in reality it was the other way around – as is often the...

ReBARKable and SCENTSable Canines

  http://us13.siteground.us/~aspenblo/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Scentsability_of_Dogs.mp3 Recently I released a new course on using aromatherapy and essential oils with our SCENTSable canines – they are SO reBARKable after all! Here are some interesting facts about this new course, ReBARKably SCENT-Able Canine for you to PAWnder: 1. I am gifting it to you all – yes I am crazy but I just know it is helping those who have already gone through it – it is simple and yet impactful. 2. Shadrach (my former Neapolitan Mastiff...

Sit Really Does Mean SIT

Sit Really Does Mean SIT

Over the past two years I’ve had the privilege of getting to know a remarkable young woman by the name of Bre Altherr. She and her husband Chris, own and operate the North Indy Sit Means Sit franchise. When they say sit really does mean sit – it really does mean that! While their facility is focused on training, they also have a store, grooming, boarding and nutrition consulting available – yes they are raw feeding advocates and in fact do prey model raw with their own dogs! Bre also happens to be one of our students at the...

Worthy of the Truth

While this is a “mixed bag” (at least it’s not a bag of kibble!) blog post, I felt it needed to be so the message would be REALLY heard because it is about how worthy of the truth are our dogs. Let me start out with my short and goofy “Weird Animal Girl“scenario first because I think it shows how important, precious and special our relationships with our dogs are to us. As I explained in my last blog post I was called that “weird animal girl” as a child. I own that wholly and fully now! I am wearing...

Quail Call Zoomies

Quail Call Zoomies

My crazy house lol…last Thursday as I was cleaning house and listening to music I had all sorts of “thoughts” running through my head. It was a gorgeous day and so I am thinking it just put me in a lighter mood. That always helps when cleaning house. Well out of the blue I recalled to mind the calls quail make to each other although I rarely hear them do that during the winter – must be a mating call. It has a very unique sound to it and it is actually, to me anyway, quite lovely. So anyway I started doing this quail...

Running Wolf

I know I’ve been sharing a lot of stories of my outings with Schatzie (aka Running Wolf) lately but since King is on the injured reserve list right now (but improving DAILY I might add – so exciting to watch it all happen naturally), I am enjoying sharing my adventures with this amazing dog. It is a testament to the laws of nature and the naturopathic approach to caring for our dogs. As always, I give my dogs a variety of nicknames based upon the personalities that emerge from them as we grow in our relationship through the...

Klaus the Rottweiler

This is such a fantastic story I just had to share it with all of you! My very good friend, Bre Altherr and her husband Chris own a boarding, grooming, training franchise facility in northern Indiana – Sit Means Sit. Bre also happens to be one of our students at the American Council of Animal Naturopathy. She takes every opportunity she can to encourage her clients to learn about and implement proper nutrition for our canine carnivore companions. This short story is about Klaus the Rottweiler. His photos say it all! Story written by Bre...

In the Mist Came Clarity

Our weather in NM for the last few days has been VERY wintery but I’ve experienced such blessings and clarity in the mist of the fog and snow. It has felt like Schatzie and I were the only souls about each morning. The first foggy morning, she snuck up on a flock of quail in the brush and they certainly woke me up from my deep contemplation as they flew en masse up out of the brush lol – who needs coffee!! 😂😜 I love watching her though as she inspects things, marks territory (high up I might add to trump coyotes I...

Vibrational Wellness

http://us13.siteground.us/~aspenblo/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/something_oily_this_way_comes.mp3 Just this past week I released a class I wrote on essential oils, I titled the Oily Symphony. In addition to creating it, we did a show on Animal Talk Naturally about it so that I could offer it to everyone at no cost! So I wanted to make sure all avenues of sharing this offering available which is the reason for this blog post today. In the new year I know I will get back to writing my dog wellness stories – I have new ones to share. For...
