Importance of Knowing Your Dog’s Actions

Our little “Teena” is ever growing. Her sleek fur is shinier as ever and her eyes are shining too! We nourish her with milk and the best dog food we can get from the market. We also give her a nice, cool bath daily and a brief walk in the neighborhood. Caring for Teena has become a family bonding. During weekends, my hubby and my son would play with her, my son even talks to her. She responds by wagging her tail and jumping.

Dogs Language

We sometimes teach her tricks and when she gets it right, we reward her with dog treats. Teena loves music as well! Every time my husband puts something on the speakers, she goes all hyped up! There was even one time when my son played his toy guitar, one that looks so real and similar to those sold at the largest online music store, Teena responded cheerfully by jumping up and down and bows down after. These dog actions performed by Teena help us knowing what she wants. It is important to know these dog actions because these communicate how dogs really feel. Moreover, knowing such builds and improves our relationship with them.

Goodbye, Cheese!

The sudden death of my nephew’s pet hamster named “cheese” is still haunting him. Whenever we talk and I unconsciously mention the word “cheese,” his mood would immediately change. What once was a jolly kid now turned into a somber soul. He would sob and tears would form eventually in his eyes–an unfortunate sign of grief and sorrow. Well, we cannot blame my 10-year-old  nephew because he has been with cheese for more than a year.

Truly, the untimely death of his pet has put him into a very melancholic state. Many days passed by and we still did not think he has moved on from the premature death of his animal friend. So we decided to take him to a pet shop nearby and told him to choose a new hamster. Surprisingly, he did not select one and hurriedly stormed out of the shop. It looks like he wants me to buy him a new musical instrument at guitar center marietta. My nephew reminds me that we must not dwell in the past but move forward and change our perspectives for us to continue on with our lives. Goodbye, cheese.

Effects of Music on Animals

Music is vital. A world devoid of music is unimaginable, right? I mean, who would want to dwell in a world where birds no longer sing or bees don’t buzz? Everything in this world would be pretty dull and boring. We cling on to music for a lot of reasons, relaxation is one example.

Effects of Music

But little did we know that animals also depend on music as much as humans do. Music has a different effect on animals. In a website called Allsciencefairproject.com, hamsters that were exposed to classical music were likely to finish the maze quickly that those who were not. Similarly, in a website called Mentalfloss.com, relaxed cows (i.e. cows that are exposed to classical music) produce more milk. This researches simply tells us that music is for everyone, not just for humans but for animals as well. So if you have a pet, it would not hurt to let them relax to Mozart or Beethoven connected to a jbl control 25. So, what are you waiting for hooman, let your pet listen to music!

Insurance For Your Horses

A Special Investment

Investing in a horse with horse insurance is an important choice for a horse owner. Horses have unique bloodlines, and with training, a competitive horse may have great potential as a competitor. All of this involves a major financial investment on the part of the owner, which goes along with the emotional investment an owner makes in their relationship with the horse as well. Due to this, it’s very important to have quality insurance in place to cover the many medical costs that are due to come up during a horse’s life.

Equine Insurance Options

There are many factors to consider when buying an equine insurance policy. Most horse owners will take out a life insurance policy for their horse to protect their investment against catastrophe. Along with life insurance, it’s also wise to take out medical and surgical insurance on a horse, as vet bills and the cost of surgery, should the horse become unwell, can be high. With a solid coverage plan in place, these costs can be handled and the horse can have a chance to recover its health and soundness.

Working With An Insurer Who Understands

It’s important for a dedicated horse owner to work with an insurance company that understands what’s needed. There are “Endorsement Options” available in equine insurance policies that will help to cover medical expenses that come up. A surgical endorsement will help to cover the costs of needed surgical procedures. A Major Medical endorsement will cover the veterinary bills that can come up. With these pieces in place in an insurance policy, an owner can rest easy knowing their horse can be cared for without an untenable expense.

One of the insurance agencies that specializes in equine coverage is www.TheArkAgency.com. This agency will connect horse owners with insurance carriers who have the type of coverage needed to care for your special animal. What’s sure is that any horse owner should definitely consider purchasing insurance for the sake of their animal, and their own peace of mind.

Hello Kitty Aquarium

My niece loves Hello Kitty. She also wanted to have Hello Kitty stuff like hello kitty guitar, bags, and all those kiddie toys. Since my little man loves fishes, my niece thought of having Hello Kitty aquarium then. But because my sister do not have that patience in rearing fishes, I am having second thoughts if I will get one hello kitty aquarium then.

The above image of hello kitty aquarium is great but this sure is not suitable for my little man. He doesn’t like hello kitty, much even more the color pink. Perhaps I will just look for other stuff that is unisex, to fit for the two kids.
