Senior Dogs

touch of home

SENIOR DOGS

One by one, they pass my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past his time, he can’t run and play.
They shake their heads slowly and go on their way.

A little old man, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.

Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can’t justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
Those younger dogs get adopted away.

When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face…

New shark research

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video says about itself:

A “shark‘s eye” view: Witnessing the life of a top predator

28 Feb 2014

Scientists at the University of Hawaii and the University of Tokyo are attaching sophisticated sensors and video cameras to sharks, giving them a “shark’s eye” view of the ocean and revealing new findings about how sharks swim and live in their natural environment. The new research is being presented at the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting co-sponsored by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, The Oceanography Society and the American Geophysical Union.

Lioness dangles nine-week-old cub in her claws and she crosses river

  • Makes her way across Ntiakitiak River in Kenya to join rest of her pride
  • Stunning images captured by Greek photographer Kyriakos Kaziras

Her jaws clamped firmly around the scruff of her tiny cub’s neck, this plucky lioness is taking no chances as she tackles a risky river crossing.

cub_kenya

As her nine-week-old youngster dangles beneath her, the mother skips gingerly between impromptu stepping stones.

These stunning images capture the heart-stopping moment the lioness braved choppy waters, clasping her little one’s nape, as she made her way to join the rest of the pride on the other side of the river.

Amazingly, the cub escaped with only a sodden coat as its mother safely negotiated the fast-flowing waters of the Ntiakitiak River in Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve.

Greek photographer Kyriakos Kaziras managed to capture the moment during a trip in December.

‘Gluten Brain’: Wheat Cuts Off Blood Flow To Frontal Cortex.

The Truth is Where?

By: Sayer Ji, Founder  January 30th 2014.    Find Full Article Here:-

Research: Wheat Cuts Off Blood Flow To the Brain's Frontal Cortex

As far back as 1954, reports of the full or partial resolution of schizophrenia following a gluten free diet began to surface in the medical literature. We covered this remarkable pattern of associations in a previous article titled, “60 Years of Research Links Gluten Grains to Schizophrenia.” While the explanation for this intriguing connection has remained focused on the disruption of the gut-brain axis and the presence in wheat of a wide range of pharmacologically active and mostly opioid receptor modulating polypeptides, a new and possibly more disturbing explanation is beginning to surface: wheat consumption cuts off blood flow to the brain.

Starting with a 1997 case study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine involving a 33-year-old patient, with pre-existing diagnosis of ‘schizophrenic’ disorder, who first came to medical attention for severe diarrhea and…

Above and Below – Whats In It ?

Dear all,

We are asking as many people as possible to help sign the petition to stop ‘box type’ trailers being used in the EU to carry live animals.

Many people are completely unaware that when they pass trailers such as these on the highway, they are full of live animals.

There is absolute minimum, or no signage on the trailers to indicate that live animals are being transported.  This can be a very major problem should the trailer become involved in a major accident which could effectively cause it to overturn – animals would be trapped and die, whilst probably, but through no  fault of their own, rescue crews would be completely unaware that live animals are being transported and are in need of rescue.

UK Council confiscates horse from owner after they shared house for two years

Straight from the Horse's Heart

By: Dion Dassanayake as published in the Express

“It is heartbreaking. It was clear that that they wanted to take the pony…”

Pensioner Stephanie Noble the council were “beyond heartless” in taking pony Grey Lady Too, who she has lived with since before Christmas 2011.

Council officers removed the animal in a horse box and handed the 67-year-old a letter saying they were going to seek a disposal order from a court.

Ms Noble, who lives in the Outer Hebrides, has promised to fight the legal action and said she “hates” the council for taking her beloved animal.

She said: “I am totally stressed out. They should have gone to court first. They have refused to tell me where they have taken her. It is just completely heartless – in fact beyond heartless.

“I feel raped, pilaged and burnt by this council. I hate their guts for what they have…

Horse Prefers Owner’s House Over Barn

Now Terry and I enjoy spending about every waking moment with our equine companions, either we are out in the pastures with them, on the trails or even allowing them to come on into our human yard and graze while we work on landscaping and such (the pool IS off limits and we have a sign to remind them “No horses allowed beyond this point!”.

Likewise, Terry and I went to great expense to build the horses a first rate barn that not only offers them clean, comfortable shelter when inside but also affords them ample shelter when…
