“Going Green” Fail – Part 1

“I’ve been working to protect consumers from harmful products for almost 20 years now, but what I’ve discovered about these cleaners still shocks me. I hope you’ll take some time to learn the truth about the products you use so you can continue to keep your family safe.” ~Ken Cook, Environmental Working Group For a few years now the phrase “going green” has been used to entice the growing market for only “natural” eco-safe products. The term is now used so broadly that we have to do our due diligence in order to not be taken in by...

Human Medications Can Cause Poisoning in Pets (Opinion)

Human medications are topping the list of potential “poisonings” in pets these days. Those reading this magazine have read about the dangers of vaccines, pharmaceuticals for animals, toxic pest control products, commercial pet food, etc., so most of us are aware of the growing concern about these things. However, now the growing concern is for pets getting into human medications as is shared in the following two articles: 1. Pets poisoned by your pills, group says: Human medications top the list of group’s top 10 toxins 2. Human Meds Trigger...

Toxins That Hinder Health

Part of the problem is that we have been conditioned to believe we must fear these so-called pests and to annihilate them at all costs.

Weird Animal Girl – W.A.G.

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...

  http://aspenbloompetcare.com/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!

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...
