Balanced Nutrition is the Key to a Healthy Diet

4 The Love Of Animals

Fats nourish the skin and make it soft, and they help with a luxurious coat and contribute to shiny fur! If the vitamins levels are deficient, your pet could experience fatigue or weakness. We hear a lot about healthy diets, both for people and for pets. What we often don’t hear about is the importance of balanced nutrition. Have you heard the phrase “a little will do a little good; a lot will do a lot of good”?

Sneeze Prone? Top 5 Dogs for Allergy Suffers

4 The Love Of Animals

It was bit of a traumatic experience for me and I vowed to never own an animal again. In fact, it has nothing to do with a dog’s fur. What happens is that the dander is released via fluids or gets embedded in the dog’s fur which is then spread in the air and attached on multi-surfaces when a dog urinates, salivates or sheds. When I was 12-years-old, my 6 pound Chihuahua was involved in a tragic fatal accident.

On the Psychological Continuum

Animal Person

I do think that in my lifetime greyhound racing will end, circuses will be animal-free, elephants and marine mammals won't be in zoos, and fur might even be banned. My experience with my own brochure, Thinking Critically About Animal Rights , supports the psychological continuum and the idea that people might stop a particular use of an animal when they learn about what is done to that animal in order for them to use the animal.

When Choosing A Pup, Research ‘Breeds’ Results

4 The Love Of Animals

His large pouty eyes, silky fur-coat, and silly little paws on which he fumbled all over the hay-covered kennel, lured me in like a dog to a bone. Hopefully sharing my learning experience at the shelter will help you make informed decisions when they’re ready to adopt. The following is a guest post from Kevin Sloan. At an NYC puppy shelter a few weeks ago, my mind was just about made up when I met Chester – The cutest Lab puppy I’d ever seen.

Montezuma Winery: Red Wing

10,000 Birds

Longworth discovered the process of making bubbly quite by accident, but after realizing his unplanned experiment was similar to la méthode champenoise used to produce sparkling wines in Champagne, he used the coincidence to his advantage in his very successful advertising campaigns. It’s an unhelpful description until one learns that it’s meant to evoke the muskiness of an old fur coat, which makes for an odd but not entirely unpleasant aroma in wine.

The Emotional Lives of Animals

Grief, friendship, gratitude, wonder, and other things we animals experience. Waterfall Dances: Do animals have spiritual experiences? I wondered what in the world he’d brought back and discovered the wet ball of fur was a very young bunny.

Make This the Year You Do Right by Animals

Animal Ethics

d) Stop wearing animals—Don’t purchase or wear garments made of fur or containing fur trim; don't purchase garments advertised or labeled as "faux fur" since these garments may be made of real fur mislabeled as faux fur (for details, see my previous post on mislabeled dog fur jackets here ); don’t purchase leather, and as your leather garments wear out, replace them with nonleather alternatives.

Robert Young on Killing Animals

Animal Ethics

Certain of our killings of them clearly maximally unjustly prevent their realization of such life-purposes (or if this appears too grandiose a term, with the desires to do things which they experience). Does my proposal as to what makes killing another human being generally a major moral wrong in any way help us with deciding what, if anything, is wrong with killing non-human animals and foetuses? I believe it does help.

The Geladas of Ethiopia

These experiences were the highlight of my trip to Ethiopia and one of the most fascinating and enjoyable encounters I have ever had the privilege to experience in many years of wildlife watching. They strut about flicking their luxurious fur capes, roaring, displaying their massive canines, chasing off rival males and generally just releasing their built-up testosterone, but back at the ranch, it’s the females that actually call the shots.

Aisholpan Nurgaiv is a graceful, rosy-cheeked 13-year old girl with a magic smile who makes living on the edge of nowhere and forever look like the easiest experience in the world. The center of attention are the eagle hunters, erect on their horses, hands protected by thick leather gloves holding their hooded eagles, arms propped up by handmade wooden rests attached to the saddle, weathered faces framed by splendid fur-trimmed hats.

Seabirding off Cape Point

10,000 Birds

This may be the most awesome pelagic you’ll ever experience… For me it was the publication in 1984 of Peter Harrison’s ground-breaking identification guide to ‘ Seabirds ’ that opened up the off-shore world of pelagic birding right on Cape Town’s door step. African Black Oystercatcher All in all, a pelagic trip off Cape Town is a memorable and unforgettable experience, certainly a ‘must do’ for any dedicated birder visiting South Africa.

Offshore Sea Life ID Guide: West Coast–A Book Review

10,000 Birds

The two main chapters cover Marine Mammals (Orca; Whales; Dolphins and Porpoises; Sea Lions, Fur Seals, and Elephant Seal; Rarer Marine Mammals) and Seabirds (Albatrosses, Shearwaters and Fulmar, Strom-Petrels, Phalaropes, Alcids, Red-billed Tropicbird, Brown Booby, South Polar Skua, Jaegers, Gulls and Terns, Rarer Seabirds). It’s perfect for birders like me, birders who have some experience, but who get all queasy inside at the thought of identifying seabirds on their own.

Close Encounters

10,000 Birds

“Well, I won’t be needing this any longer” Up until this moment I did not realize that not only owls upchucked undigested pellets of bone and fur. I stayed a little longer, then went and got Travis (who had stayed at the truck playing) so he could experience this close encounter. One of the truly incredible things about Nature is how it can continually surprise you. There are patterns, to be sure, a certain predictability in pathways, behaviours, timing.
