TO YOUR HEALTH!

There have been numerous studies that show that in addition to giving you unconditional love a pet might actually help improve your health!
It could also be that if you lead a “harried”, too hectic life without a moment to spare a pet just might be the straw that breaks the proverbial “camels back”. Just as having children is not for everyone neither is having pets.
They require a commitment of time, energy and money but they also give back some things that you may have never thought about.

Just as having children is not for everyone neither is having pets. They require a commitment of time, energy and money but they also give back some things that you may have never thought about.
They Help Your Heart
Simply petting a dog or a cat can lower your blood pressure. Stroking a snake works, too, one study found -- but probably only among people who own snakes! "Holding a pet triggers a relaxation response," explains Alan Beck, ScD, director of the Center for the Human-Animal Bond, at Purdue University. "It helps you stay focused on the present, as opposed to dwelling on the past or worrying about the future." And cuddling with furry friends can give you a chemical boost by releasing the feel-good brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine. Pet owners also tend to have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels, according to a study published in the Medical Journal of Australia.

Pets Boost Immunity
Sick as a dog? Maybe it's time to get one. Petting a dog can up your levels of immunoglobulin A, an antibody that fights off the common cold, according to a study at Wilkes University. It's likely a result of that "man's best friend" thing, says James A. Serpell, PhD, director of the Center for the Interaction of Animals and Society at the University of Pennsylvania. "We know that social support -- or a lack of it -- directly affects the body's immune system and impacts our resistance to infections and disease." A companion who acts as if it's Christmas morning every time you walk through the door? Now that's a support system.

They Teach Your Kids to Be Nicer People
Boys and girls who live with pets are more empathetic and social than kids who don't, according to a Croatian study. And allowing boys to take responsibility for feeding, walking, and grooming a dog lets them practice nurturing skills that girls typically develop while playing house, explains sociologist Clinton R. Sanders, PhD, author of Understanding Dogs: Living and Working with Canine Companions.

You'll Breathe Easier
Pets cause some folks to sneeze, to be sure. But people who grow up with a pet are less likely to have allergies and asthma later on, Swedish researchers say. Other studies have similar findings. One explanation? Early exposure to allergens -- dirt, pollen, and pet dander -- helps create a stronger immune system. One more reason to cave when your kids ask for a kitten!

You're Forced to Stay Fit
Having a dog means you've got no excuse to blow off your daily stroll. Dog owners tend to be in better shape than people who don't have a pet to walk, says Beck. But don't just take his word for it. "I lost a little over 30 pounds by walking my dogs every day for an hour -- rain, shine, 106 degrees or 35 degrees," says reader Carol Fallows Collyer, from Colleyville, Texas.

Dogs can calm down even the biggest scaredy-cat. People worry less about being attacked when they have a canine companion, say researchers from the University of Cambridge. And bigger isn't necessarily better. With its super-sensitive sense of sound and smell, even a small dog can tell you when something's not quite right.

Pets Help You Feel Less Alone
Are you one of those people who tells her troubles to her cat? Turns out that you're not nuts -- you're normal. Fifty percent of adults and 70 percent of children confide in their pet, according to Beck's research. Having a pet also helps children deal better with the death of a parent, says a study from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. You develop a sense of companionship, whether your pet is a dog, a bird, or a fish, says Colin Jerolmack, PhD, an assistant professor at New York University, whose research focuses on animals and society. "You start developing particular routines and rituals with each other and get drawn into a relationship, which can make you feel as though you're not alone."

You May Meet New Friends
Any kind of pet is a natural conversation starter, Dr. Jerolmack says. But dogs tend to take it a few steps further. Since they don't have the same social inhibitions as humans, they can literally drag you into encounters. For most of us that simply means getting to know the neighbors a little better. But for Melyssa Peters, 35, a real-estate agent in Los Angeles, California, it was truly life changing. After checking out a cute guy at her local dog park, she used their dogs as an excuse to strike up a conversation. "I started talking to Rob about his dog and our relationship began with long walks around the neighborhood," she remembers. "Three years later we were married."

A couple of years ago a stray, or abandoned cat, found his way to our farm.  He was sick, hungry and very much in need of some TLC.  After a couple of hundred dollars in vet bills and some good food he's become a beautiful and welcome addition to our lives.  In exchange for the care he needs he's agreed to become a dog and let our puppies torment the heck out of him.  When he's had enough he just jumps up out of their way or gives them a good bat.

When the vet asked me what his name was I had to say I didn't know so his file was labeled "No Name Berthold" and still is.  We can't agree on a name and he doesn't seem to mind.  The puppies adore him and play with him constantly, he tolerates them.  So your puppy will be used to a cat, if your cat can stand being tormented!

CRABBY OLD MAN

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in North Platte, Nebraska , it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.

Later, when the nurses were going through his meagecrabby old manr possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content
so impressed
the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital. One nurse took her copy to Missouri .

The old man’s sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine
of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple,
but eloquent, poem.

And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this ‘anonymous’ poem
winging across the Internet.

Crabby Old Man

What do you see nurses? . . . .. . What do you see?
What are you thinking . . . . . when you’re looking at me?
A crabby old man . . . . . not very wise,
Uncertain of habit . . . . . with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food . . . . .. and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . . . . . ‘I do wish you’d try!’
Who seems not to notice . . . . . the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . A sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not . . . . . lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . . . . The long day to fill?
Is that what you’re thinking? . . . . . Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse . . . . . you’re not looking at me.

I’ll tell you who I am. . . . . . As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, . . . . . as I eat at your will.
I’m a small child of Ten . . . . . with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters . . . .. . who love one another.

A young boy of Sixteen . . . . with wings on his feet.
Dreaming that soon now . . . . . a lover he’ll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . . . . my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows . . . . . that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now . . . . . I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . . . . . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . . . . With ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons . . . . . have grown and are gone,
But my woman’s beside me . . . . .. to see I don’t mourn.
At Fifty, once more, babies play ’round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . . . My loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me . . . . . my wife is now dead.
I look at the future . . . . . shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing . . . . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . . . and the love that I’ve known.

I’m now an old man . . . . . and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age . . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles . . . . . grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone . . .. . where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass . . . . . a young guy still dwells,
And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys . . . . . I remember the pain.
And I’m loving and living . . . . . life over again.

I think of the years, all too few . . . . . gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people . . . . . open and see.
Not a crabby old man . . . Look closer . . . see ME!!

Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you
might brush aside without looking at the young soul within.

We will all, one day, be there, too!

Who can look at a picture of children with their puppies and not go “awwwww how cute is that”, not me for sure. But that picture isn’t always so sweet and every parent thinking about getting a dog for the kids should be aware of the “downside” to puppies and young children.

There are some breeders who will not place puppies in families with children under five and there are good reasons for that.

* Time would be one of the big ones. You’re going to need to devout a lot of time to your new puppy. They require several trips outside during early housebreaking, which with young children usually requires getting both them and the puppy out the door.

* The ways that young children act and react with puppies often encourages bad behavior from the puppy. If the puppy is jumping on them or nipping their toes they tend to run away. In the puppies mind this translates into “game on” and they are more than willing to chase and catch…………the child. The way they move their hands and raise their voices when puppy is misbehaving translates in the puppies mind as “this is fun, let’s keep the game going”

* Young children lack the ability to correct bad behavio004r or reinforce good behavior.

* If you have young children and are going to get a puppy be prepared to spend a good deal of time protecting your child from what is normal puppy behavior………………………….. and your puppy from what is normal children’s behavior!
There are some differences between bringing a baby
home from the hospital and bringing a puppy home but, sorry
to say they aren’t all good!

* puppies not wearing diapers!

* puppies much more mobile, he’s on the run from day one!

* on the plus side no worry about who he’s dating or
paying for college!

Puppies---Young-Children~~element34Make sure that everyone in the family participates in the
care of the puppy. This is very important. Puppies,
much like people, bond with those who care for them. Have
the children participate in feeding, walking, and treat
giving. While the puppy is young hand feed him his food for
one of his meals each day and have the children participate
in this. He who feeds me is leader of my pack. Get a soft
brush and have the children gently brush and handle the
puppy all over. If possible have the children go to classes
with the puppy so they learn the proper way to train and
correct.

Sampson_hellerMany families with young children adopt puppies and all goes well. On the flip side of that many dogs and puppies are surrendered to rescue and shelters every year. I’m fairly sure that most of the time one of two things has happened. One being that the family has not thought about the time and energy that goes into caring for and training a puppy. The other is that puppies grow up to be dogs and if they haven’t been properly trained and socialized they can become pretty obnoxious and annoying housemates.
Alex_Rosie_SnowyPuppies, just like children, go through stages of development. Puppy, adolescent, young adult. My husband has a favorite saying “no dog is worth owning before he’s two years old” I don’t agree with his sentiment but I understand what he’s saying. In some cases your dog will be two before he is the great canine companion you want him to be. Something to think about before you decide to make the plunge.
Being a mbaxter-and-juliaere mortal myself, and having made more mistakes than I would care to ever list, I realize that sometimes we just make mistakes. Sometimes life deals us a blow or a situation we just can’t deal with. Should you find yourself with one of our puppies and unable to keep it for whatever reason he is welcome back here and we will do our best to find him a loving home. We would not charge a new family if we ever had to re-home a puppy so there would be no refund under those circumstances.

The Cat’s Diary

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.
They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are
fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for
the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order
to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an
attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on thno_name 1e carpet. Today I decapitated a
mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this
would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my
capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about
what a “good little hunter” I am. Jerks!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was
placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I
could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement
was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and
how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my
tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try
this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and
snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and
seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously mentally ill.
The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicating with the
guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors
have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is
safe.

For now…
the cat
