    Perhaps, you didn’t know that in order to release this blog on time, I have to start writing it on Sunday - a week before it's published.

    I usually free up my schedule for the morning and plant a chair in the shade of a tree in the garden. Then I yell, “Paxiii” and count to three before my sweet pup eagerly appears, lying down by my feet, ready to inspire me.

    The highs and lows

    This past week was interesting. A blend of highs and lows. The highs are thanks to Pax and his new friend Lana-banana. Pax has definitely helped her come out of her shell and Pax benefits from all the romping and playing to stay strong.  A week ago, Lana was a canine version of a wallflower, now she is the life of the party - and the beach 🥳🏝!

    The lows have been around our leaky roof and the roofers, who missed a rotten section which had to be redone. Another low was with a friend who blocked my messages after I didn’t agree with her COVID-19 conspiracy theory.

    We live in a time when the definition of truth has become blurry, and I don’t want to feel down and depressed by obsessing about something I can’t change, confirm or deny. Perhaps this is my suggestion to you: try not to waste too much time with things that you can't change. Life is too short.

    There is one good side-effect of the COVID-19 crisis. It is easier to be grateful for the things we sometimes take for granted. Going for a dog walk is a top cultural event and finding a two-pound bag of organic baking flour at the local store feels like winning a Nobel Prize 🏅! Happiness comes in simpler, less costly forms now 😃.

    Lately, many friends including you have turned to me with veterinary questions. This morning, I got heck from a friend whose email I didn't answer and I felt embarrassed. This prompted me to offer you a little review of where to find help when you need it.  

    Here are a few resources and links to find what you need to keep your dog healthy:
    • Weekly newsletter with health tips and news (the most reliable way to make sure that you will not miss anything).
    • Recipe Maker to make healthy and balanced meals for your dog.
    • Courses to learn the principles of holistic healing and self-healing.
    • Facebook Live our weekly live broadcasts every Thursday at 1pm PT / 4pm ET.
    • Instagram is here for those of you who like to check in and see what Pax and I are up to.  Just remember that both Facebook and Instagram show my posts to a fraction of subscribers. The best way is to bookmark my page.
    • YouTube - features videos about diet, nutrition, supplements, natural ways to help your dog and also our adventures.
    • Pinterest is super fun and exciting because it reaches more of you, unlike Facebook and Instagram and provides direct links to The Blog and infographics to learn through pictures.
    The BLOG deserves a separate mention because it has answers to most of the problems your dog may suffer from. All you need to do is enter your search terms and the answers will be listed in the search results.
