Reiki for Dogs

I am a certified Reiki Master/Teacher, and I am someone who loves animals. I have come to notice how involved not only my late cat, but my parent’s Labrador also wanted to be present during any Reiki sessions I held in my old bedroom at my parent’s house. Animals are energy sensitive beings, and can sense our fear, or anger, and any strong emotions we may exhibit in their presence. As my parent’s Lab grew older, into her senior years, I thought about giving her some healing in her hip area, where I noticed she exhibited discomfort. Little did I know that Reiki can also help animals before that day. She was able to get up a little easier, and was able to walk around without as much difficulty. That was when I looked into how Reiki can benefit our beloved companions. I hope this Prezi presentation will help open the door to another way to help your dog through his or her senior years, or sooner for higher well-being.

To Treat, or Not to Treat?

Christmas has come and gone this year, just as it does every holiday season. We’re all tipping the scales, feeling mounds of guilt; wishing we hadn’t eaten all those cookies, cake, or pie during the family feast(s). However, we’re not the only ones spoiled and ending up over doing the calorie counts.

We not only give gifts and treats, such as cookies, fruitcakes, and candy to our children, and each other. We also tend to spoil our pets, namely dogs, during the Christmas season with candy cane decorated rawhides, decorated holiday dog biscuits, and flavored frozen yogurt; just to name a few.

As a pet supply retail clerk/cashier, the Christmas season is a time for spoiling those we love, whether they are human, canine, feline, or even aquatic! We all feel the need to give around this time of the year, even if it’s not necessarily needed.

A Puppy for Christmas

I remember the years of my youth, when my parents waited till my sister and I were asleep before wrapping and placing our gifts under the big, fake, flocked Christmas tree in the living room. One year, we got so many toys, it was maddening, Another year, there was a stack of large, wrapped boxes that reached the ceiling, that later turned out to be an Apple IIe in 1984, and my sister and I were grateful. We learned a lot from that archaic computer, and that machine helped me become the computer geek I am today.

However, one present our parents never gave my sister and me for Christmas was, you guessed it, a puppy or kitty. The puppy giving for Christmas has become a common gift idea recently, and I felt posting a video showcasing loved ones receiving puppies for Christmas was perfect for the gift giving season. So, sit back and enjoy this very heart-warming video of various ways to give a puppy for Christmas.

Questions asked on a daily basis at my store consist of issues with food rejection, food allergies, and what food is best for their cats and dogs. Well, there is a wide range of foods to choose from out there. With new research unfolding, and more information on proper nutrition becoming readily available to the public, the sky is the limit as far as manufacturer’s to choose from. There are, however, some important things to consider:

Rescuing Someone Special

Today, I met a couple at work that had a beautiful black and white, furry, lop-eared bunny with them. I asked them how old the bunny was, they said they didn’t know, and that they had just picked up the little one today. then, I learned they’d picked up the bunny at the local butcher shop. Needless to say, I was in shock. They said they saved the bunny from being slaughtered. The first thought that went through my mind was, “How dare they try to slaughter that bunny?” And then it dawned on me, this bunny was to be slaughtered for either us humans, or the manufacturers of our dog and cat food.
