EnduraPet My Favorite Vendor at 2016 Denver Dog Show

image

This year I was pleased to see EnduraPet, my favorite dog supplement provider, had returned to the 2016 Denver Dog Show.

I have been using EnduraPet for about six years now and have never been disappointed with results.

Here is a post I did about how their Mobility Plus+ changed my ageing German Shepherd’s life Mobility Plus+

The quality of their products continues to impress me.  I have a rescue dog suffering from Addison’s Disease.  He is quite nervous during stormy weather such as thunder and extreme wind.  He is also no so happy with fireworks.  I have been using the Calming Plus+ product for about three years and find it does just that, calms poor Roscoe’s nerves.  The wind, thunder and loud fireworks still bother him; but, with the help of Calming Plus+, he is able to settle down and wait out the event.

February Yoga Puppy and Monty’s Suggestion

image

February’s pose is Warrior I Pose as shown here by Yogi.

Monty suggests combining this pose with Mountain Pose and a pose he calls Blind Dog’s Swaying Mountain Pose or another slightly more challenging pose he calls Blind Dog’s Swaying Tree Pose.

Blind Dog’s Swaying Mountain Pose:  From Warrior I step into Mountain Pose, close your eyes and move your breath and your focus to your feet.  Begin to gently sway in very small movements, take notice of your balance and feel the shifting of your weight in your feet as you sway.  Keep movements small.  Open your eyes and step alternate leg back into Warrior I.

Blind Dog’s Swaying Tree Pose:  From Warrior I step into Mountain Pose.  Shift weight into left leg and move into Tree Pose keeping the ball of the right foot on the ground.  Close your eyes and sway as if in a gentle breeze.  Keep movements small.  Open your eyes and move into Mountain Pose.  Shift weight to right leg and move into Tree Pose keeping the ball of the left foot on the ground.  Close your eyes and sway in the gentle breeze.  Open your eyes and move into Mountain Pose and when ready step alternate leg back into Warrior I.

Aids in balance, my Mom and her friend practice simple standing poses with their eyes closed and are now able to catch themselves when slipping on ice.  Decreases those nasty winter falls.

January Yoga Puppy and Monty’s Suggestion

Easy crossed leg pose.

Monty suggests combining with stomach grinds.

image

Place one hand on each knee.  Gently engage core.  Make a small slow steady circle around your center with your belly button or top of head.  Focus on steady breath.  After a minute switch directions (clockwise and counterclockwise).  Then switch your legs (other leg on top) and repeat.

May aid in digestion and realign organs in your core, great for circulation too!

Make my Day, Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth.

A place of love, peace, joy and happiness.

I have been missing my Rommy who I lost in August.  Imagine my surprise to receive this card from my church community.

image

It made my realize that Rommy provided me with a little bit of Heaven on Earth.

Always there for me.  With his calmness, fears and insecurities lessened.  Anxieties comforted.

Rommy sleeping

He left the knowledge of Heaven on Earth to Roscoe and Monty to share with me and remind me of my good fortune.  Just has he received the knowledge from Maxx and Troi before him.

Furry Five on Herding Humans

image

Hi, we are the Furry Five and we are guest bloggers here on sanseilife.

We are a new pack consisting of:

Roscoe Mania

Monty Mayhem

Ranger Danger

Remmy Renegade

Buster Beatdown

Our post today is describing the trials of herding humans.  They love this activity called “hiking” but they are so clueless.  Our job is to keep them on the trail.  We were herding three humans but the male kept forging ahead.  He is a real trouble maker and we are going to have to pow-wow to discuss how to get him under control.

Wish us luck.

Invisibility, My Friend in the Wheelchair and Good Tears

Rommy sleeping

Hi, my name is Rommy and I am a guest blogger here on sanseilife.

Although I am no longer in this world my mom thinks about me a lot and I try to send her memories to remind her about the great life we had together.

I reminded mom about a friend I made one day.  Laura was in a wheelchair and was very sad.  I went right up for her so that she could pet me.

She told my mom that she was amazed that I was not afraid of her or her wheelchair.

Mom and I would occasionally go on outings with Laura.  She knew all the friendly people and cool places that didn’t mind me coming in their stores.

One day we were in a favorite store and about five people talked to Laura and asked her about her dog friend.  She was the happiest I had ever seen her.  Suddenly animated and laughing the whole afternoon.

Later she told my mom, with tears in her eyes, that she loved going places with me.  She said she used to be invisible but now when people saw me they saw her too.  I thought people tears were a sad thing but that day I learned people tears can be a good thing too.

Laura is here with me and met me at the Rainbow Bridge to welcome me.  She doesn’t need her wheelchair anymore.

Mom always tries to take a moment to smile and say hi to those invisible people and I just reminded her why.
