The Adventures

Adventures are in the eye of the beholder. Whether it is caring for your puppy through the night, learning how to DIY raw feed your dog, or hitting the backroads of places unknown to you, adventures are adventures, big or small. Walking your dog from the front door to the car can be a big…

Feeding the farm that feeds our family that feeds our farm

 I am putting this information in table form, as it is easier to understand, and also a reminder to me of everything that is happening. Our farm is biodynamic, meaning that one living organism feeds another, and works together to create sustainable and optimal health. We do not use any chemicals, we feed organic and…

Processing Our Quail

Years ago, I believe 2009 or so, I read a book TIME TO EAT THE DOG? This book had a focus on sustainable living and how to lower your carbon footprint, or in this case, pawprint. The authors surmised that dogs have as large if not larger carbon print than an SUV. They stated that…

Yesterday I learned something new

Censorship has hit the USA … again. This seems to be part of our history when someone in power is threatened by ‘other voices’, most of the time voices of reason, voices of common sense, and voices that challenge the narrative or lies being told. Someone in power doesn’t even have to be a person…

Canine Cocktails

Multiple Dog Household Dynamics – FOOD

My dogs set their own rules for each other when it comes to canine etiquette and food. I of course manage the environment and make sure each one of my dogs needs are met each day in the way of exercise (both physical and mental), optimal nutrition, emotionally stable environment or anything close to it,…

Affordable and healthy food choices for your dog

I work with a good number of dog owners that would like to feed a healthier diet but are concerned with higher costs that are often times associated with healthier food. Bottom line, I get it, I have months where money is non-existent for fancy extras or high priced anything, but always keep in mind…

Smoothies for your Dog – here’s to better nutrition

say it how it is – series Bottom line, you need to make choices for your dogs nutrition based off of research you have done, not the marketing you are being spoon fed. Keep in mind the dog food business is worth something like $52 billion a year, you can bet they hire the best…

Water is Life …How you can help at Standing Rock

We pulled into our driveway last night, happy, tired, thoughts reeling, kind of hungry, kind of not, looking forward to bed, and maybe some pie. I am fully aware I am a tall substantial white woman, so I am not even going to try to explain the Native American experience at Standing Rock, but I am…
