No Lassie’s Here

According to the American Kennel Club, the Canadian Kennel club and the UK Kennel Club the German Shepherd Dog Breed has consistently placed a spot in the top list of most popular dogs. In spite of this popularity many people are not acquainted with the remarkable history of this dog.

It only dates back to 1899 as selectively and distinctly the Shepherd Breed. A one Mr. Horand Von Grafrath recognized the incredible intelligence of one particular Dog named Hektor and through selective and careful breeding, he was the first to declare the new German Shepherd Dog.

Because of its desirable traits, it quickly spread throughout Germany as the Working Dog of choice. Indeed, few dogs offer such Intelligence, Strength, Loyalty and, Ability to be trained as the German shepherd. In the United States you can thank the Hollywood Film Industry for Rin Tin Tin, a movie about a Hero Dog, and of-course he was a German shepherd. This 1922 film was so popular it earned this dog a Star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and the “rest”, as they say, “is history”. This Breed is so adaptable you will find it in wide variety of important services.

The fact that they are inherently loyal and protective has made them the most popular Guard Dog in the World. Their superior keen sense of smell accounts for their use as best sniffing Dogs for Drugs, Explosives, Cadavers, Buried Survivors and, tracking. Their ability to be trained for specific tasks makes them the leader in service Dogs for the Disabled.

As a family pet it can be as kind, loving, and gentle as any other breed if it is raised as a puppy for this role. However, it can be trained as a powerful aggressive Attack Dog and this makes them perfect for the use by the Police and Military. Much like a human child, as a puppy, it will grow up to be what it is trained to be. Because of the German Shepherds popularity, many Kennel’s and Breeders deal exclusive in raising, training and, selling of this very special Breed of Dog.

In Canada, an example of a fine kennel can be found at, ulvidengermanshepherds.net. In the United States, there are also many Kennels to choose from dealing in only German Shepherds and, the same is true for the UK. It is true that the German shepherd accounts for largest number of recorded dog bites; however, we must take into consideration that, this is primarily because there are more of them. The second thing would be lack of proper training. Left unchecked, the German shepherd can be overly protective of the family it loves so dearly and will not warm up to strangers readily. In realty, they are just as warm, calm and good with children as any other breed; it’s all about the way they were brought up. If you are looking for a new Family Pet, the German shepherd is as good as it gets!

First attempt to assemble aquarium at home

Since I noticed that my little man really enjoy watching real fishes in our house in our hometown and even loved to play with toy fishes, I was almost to pursue my plan to assemble an aquarium here in our small crib. And exactly a week after we arrived here, I and hubby were looking for stuff to make that aquarium realized.

To our excitement, we brought our little man to a Japan surplus shop where there was aquarium surplus displayed. So we let him pick his stuff of choice to include inside his aquarium. But we were surprised that what he actually was grabbing were musical instrument toys including some hard ware stuff like small volts, screw and even a 1 4 stereo jack. I didn’t recognized it at first, but my hubby did. We just laughed at our little man for we were sure that he still didn’t really knew what he did. What’s sure for him is that he just enjoyed and had fun picking stuff which he thought were just knew toys he never had at home.

Should I say, our first attempt to assemble aquarium at home was never a success. There is still a second time, though I can’t say it would be that good, but I am not losing hope and still praying for things to be just fine.

Rare Giant Squid Washed Ashore in New Zealand

Seeing giant animals, for sure, really do amaze us even just seeing them online being shared on social media. How much more in person? How one would feel seeing by their naked eye the rare giant squid that was washed off in the shore in New Zealand?

Dead sea turtles confiscated from Chinese fishing vessel

I just can’t imagine how those responsible humans did this to sea turtles. As you can see from the image below, a number of sea turtles were already dead — in fact, captured dead from a Chinese fishing vessel around Palawan aea.

How cruel, as I could say, these humans were as they helplessly and guilt-free kill those sea turtles. Who else now will maintain the natural habitat in the ocean bed? Who will perform now the roles of those sea turtles in continuing the beauty and cycle of the ocean life?

People, let us all keep our environment, our ecosystem intact since even the smallest to the largest animal that we could see are all part of our existence in this world.

Cleaning House Mice Mess

One morning, while I was about to prepare for our breakfast, I woke up with a messy kitchen floor. And just then I realized it was a house mice left over mess which I wonder where the mice got.

But the funny thing while I was cleaning the house mice mess was that my little man, Zach, was trying to copy what I was doing. I was brushing the floor and so he was also. And guess what he use? He grabbed his dad’s shaving brush stand and tried to brush the floor with it — doing what I did also.

Too funny morning. It was when I was about to burst but my son diverted the height of my emotion to the softest that it could be.
