  • Fishermen discards could increase prevalence of turtle disease in Turks and Caicos

    27 Aug 2015 | 6:56 pm
    The team surveyed cases of green turtle fibropapillomatosis disease, which creates unsightly pink tumors on the turtles' flesh. Although benign, they can impede turtles' vision and movement, as well as feeding, swimming and organ function. The virus is not thought to be dangerous to humans. Over two years, around 13 percent of green turtles found in waters had the disease. In contrast, fishermen did not land any diseased turtles during this period, even though they were fishing in areas where diseased animals were prevalent.

    Jon Katz
    28 Aug 2015 | 2:53 pm
    Fate At Work Friday   Friday afternoon, I took Fate out alone, left Red in the house, he was tired. I set myself – training should be happy and relaxed, although I am not always either when training a young border collie.  I want to focus on Fate paying more attention to the sheep, less to me and Red. I wait until she is looking at the sheep before giving her a command, this will reinforce her focus, which is generally very good. I took a video of this training work. I like Fate's manner a lot. She is responsive, paying close attention to me. She is appropriate, moving to keep the…

    The Love Dog At The Farm Stand I brought Fate to the Moses Farm stand in Eagle Bridge, N.Y., perhaps the best farm stand I have ever gone to. They are passionate dog lovers there, they always ask me to bring a dog to see them if I can. I brought Fate today, and it is great to see Fate's s sweetness really emerge. She is a love dog in much the way Lenore was a love dog, only she has the activity level of the border collie. Labs are, in a way, too smart to do what border collies do. Three people were surrounding her, she went over on her back to have her belly rub, she loves people in away that…

It was difficult for him to ask for $16,000 to help improve his farm and get it ready for this next winter. He got the money in just a few days. Joshua was reluctant to do it, and then surprised and humbled by the response. I told him it will probably not be the last time he needs help, he has yet to resolve the 13 counts of animal cruelty and abuse charges still pending against him, charges a lot of good people believe are false and unjust at best. It is still surprising to me that…

    New research into the impact of climate change has found that warming oceans will cause profound changes in the global distribution of marine biodiversity. The study found that a rapidly warming climate would cause many species to expand into new regions, which would impact on native species, while others with restricted ranges, particularly those around the tropics, are more likely to face extinction.

  • Keep Your Cat Cool in These Hot Days of Summer!

    ggcats
    28 Aug 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Late summer months in California mean hot, hot, hot days! August and September can easily bring 100+ temperatures.  I try to believe that outdoor cats are “street wise” and find shady spots to nap out the day hours and know where to find some water to drink. Meanwhile, as the temperatures rise your indoor cat can be susceptible to dehydration and heatstroke. Cats don’t sweat by panting- they have sweat glands in their paws. On a hot day you might see them grooming more than usual. By licking they leave saliva on their fur and when it evaporates they will cool down. Cats…

About to do the famous cat leg lift to for those hard to reach spots.   I  had to laugh when I saw this action. She went after her rear paw, actually holding it in place with her front paws! She spread the toes & cleaned each one, being very thorough.

  • Dog from Crete brought to UK by the woman she saved

    Bronwyn Hall
    20 Aug 2015 | 1:41 am
    A British holidaymaker who was visiting Crete when a dog came to her rescue and stopped her from being attacked has paid thousands of pounds to bring the canine back to the UK with her. 25 year old Georgia Bradley was visiting a remote beach when two men approached her and asked her to go for a drink with them. When Ms Bradley – whose boyfriend was in a nearby café – rejected the men, they became aggressive. As one of the men grabbed her by the arm, a small black dog darted out of nowhere and started barking. Ms Bradley told the Daily Mail that the dog ‘shot out of nowhere,…

    The beautiful and gentle Hungarian Vizsla was bred as an all-purpose gundog who is easy to train and doesn’t stray too far from his master. Their elegant and athletic stature, coupled with their short, ginger hair means that this breed is definitely a looker! And what’s more is that they have the personality to match. Although originally bred as a working dog, the Vizsla can make an excellent family pet. Their high trainability, gentle nature and affectionate personality is a winning combination to most people.

According to reports, the police were the first to arrive on the scene and found the dog cowering in the footwell of the van, attempting the get away from the sunshine. The van had been parked in the middle of the car park and although the windows had been left open, it hadn’t been covered by any shade. They were able to winch down the windows to pull the dog out.

    A dog drinking water from a hose People tend to think that if something is safe for them to ingest or be around, it too, should be safe for their dog. Many dogs have died due to eating human foods, or medications that they can’t metabolize. And, it is sad every time it happens. One of my biggest eye openers was when I was a vet tech and baking breads and bread machines were in vogue and the thing to do! We had a dog come in with bread toxicity. YES!

I just have to go by my 20+ year knowledge and experience and hope that I draw some good conclusions. And, I for one, think that dogs can suffer from the same emotional and mental disorders that people agonize from. I’ve said it before and I will undoubtedly say it again. I just can’t prove it, because I can’t get into their little minds or ask them what they are thinking or why they do…

  • Red-headed Woodpecker–Bird of the Day!

    Lauren Shaffer
    20 Aug 2015 | 10:11 am
    Red-headed Woodpeckers are fairly rare in our area, so it’s a treat to catch a sighting of their bold white patches on black wings, bright red head, and stark white belly. They nest in the excavated holes of dead trees and they require an under-story that is clear. Cornell’s website, All About Birds, says that it is sometimes called the “Flying Checkerboard” because of its dramatic coloring. This year, my birding friends and I found three nesting pairs within a few miles of each other!Red-headed Woodpeckers often have two broods in a summer. Since we just discovered…
  • Bird of the Day: American Redstart building a nest

    Lauren Shaffer
    3 Aug 2015 | 8:07 am
        During the Acadia Birding Festival, I took a morning off to meander by myself along the shore and the road near our hotel. Some movement caught my eye low in the brushy area beside the road. A female American Redstart was busy stripping the long fibers of a dead branch in the thicket.     She had to work plenty hard in order to pull off this long fiber!     To my delight, I could see her fly immediately to her little cup-like nest that she was working on about 3 feet up from the ground. I never would have noticed it unless I had seen her fly directly to it…

  • Razorbills and Common Murres: Birding Machias Seal Island

    Lauren Shaffer
    19 Jun 2015 | 4:23 pm
    Razorbills and Common Murres were among the penguin-like birds that were observed on our trip to Machias Seal Island, along with the Atlantic Puffin. All of these species are Alcids. Razorbills and Murres look very similar with their black and white coloring, but the Razorbills have a very thick, blunt bill with a white line going back towards the front of the eye. They spend their lives at sea, coming to rocky coasts and cliffs only to nest. They are great divers, able to dive up to 120 meters, dining on krill and fish, and are often seen in large rafts close to shore. The middle bird below…
  • Atlantic Puffins on Machias Seal Island

    Lauren Shaffer
    7 Jun 2015 | 6:12 pm
    Seeing Atlantic Puffins was the principle reason for wanting to go birding in Maine this Spring. Getting there by boat can be iffy, depending on the fog and the wind. When the seas are too rough to land on Machias Seal Island, one of three islands where Puffins nest, they can at least be observed from a rocking boat. My friends and I were on a Road Scholar trip called “Chickadees, Grouse, Puffins and More: A Birder’s Dream in Down East Maine.” Of course we hoped for getting our bins on Spruce Grouse (didn’t happen) and Boreal Chickadee (barely happened), but the…

  • Portrait of a bee biologist – Tom Seeley

    Editorial Board
    22 Aug 2015 | 3:23 am
    Tom Seeley is probably the most famous living bee biologist, renowned as author of a number of major books such as “The wisdom of the hive” and “Honey bee democracy”. In the latest issue of Bee World, published in August, Editor Dr. Kirsten Traynor interviews Prof. Seeley about how his interest in bees began, and his working methods. His interest in bees began young, and was crystallised whilst working one summer helping a professor at Cornell when he was a High School student. This led to the collection of his first honey bee swarm. He says: “This experience of watching these bees…

You can also adopt a German Shepherd from an animal shelter or rescue organization (I highly recommend this - you might as well help save a German Shepherd) for a small fee - sometimes less than $100 for animal shelters, and $100 to $200 for rescue…

    It didn’t take humans very long to figure out that they can train a dog to do just about anything you want them to (as long as opposable thumbs are not absolutely necessary), and they will gladly complete the task.  So there is no surprise that we now trust them with their very own jobs as service animals in a variety of fields.  We have police dogs, military dogs, fire dogs, bomb sniffing dogs, and so many more.  Besides the dogs working the front lines of law enforcement, there are plenty of other hard working pooches that spend their days doing tasks that are far less dangerous, but…
  • What's Going On In New York?: Things to do with your pet

    6 Aug 2015 | 10:27 am
    We're here to nurture the community of pets and the people that love them as we embark on this journey that is a pet food revolution.  Because this community is nationwide, we try our hardest to support pet parents everywhere in any way we can.  We realize how important it is to stay active and spend valuable time with your fur babies so we encourage all of our Petbrosia families to get out in their own communities as much as possible. We've compiled a list of some cool pet focused or pet friendly events and businesses in the New York City area and we'll continue to add as time goes on.

  • #12. Raise your vibration. Raise your success level.

    17 Aug 2015 | 5:20 pm
    The universe is made up of vibrational energy. When you like something or resonate with it, you are interacting at a higher vibration. Most animals already operate at this higher level. So what happens when you try to connect when your vibration is lower — when you are in a bad mood, irritated, tired, or feel doubt, discouragement, frustration, or even failure about your communication abilities? The intended connection becomes a disconnection. This is why so many animal communicators recommend starting with a loving thought about the animal. Offer a compliment. Ask about what they…
  • #11. Practice fearlessly so you can communicate effortlessly.

    1 Aug 2015 | 7:24 am
    If you ever had lessons as a kid, you know that part about practicing (and the accompanying nagging) can be a deal-breaker. By the time you reach adulthood, so many people have repeated that tired mantra of practice, practice, practice, that is loses its meaning. Perhaps it's time to rediscover it and make it really work for you in animal communication. You see, what practice is really doing is building muscle memory. At first, learning something like animal communication can be overwhelming as you try and remember all the steps to do this successfully, from grounding and clearing to…
  • #10. Give your animals the gift of clarity.

    21 Jul 2015 | 8:47 am
    When it comes to animal communication, much of the focus is often on getting ourselves clear enough to understand what our animals are saying. But sometimes it's our animals who are unclear, not only about our meanings, but about their roles in our lives. Animal communication pioneer Penelope Smith says in her book Animal Talk that we can dramatically improve our relationships with our animals and their fulfillment in life by making sure they have a purpose or job. By knowing for sure, for example, that they are here to teach you patience or cheer you up — instead of guessing that…
  • #9. Animals are not vending machines!

    14 Jul 2015 | 7:34 am
    When just beginning to learn animal communication, there are so many things to think about, that we may overlook one of the most important nuances: truly listening. This is different than an earlier post about talking intelligently to your animals. Truly listening means going beyond simply asking a question and getting an answer, then moving on to the next one robotically. You wouldn't do that in any meaningful conversation with another person, would you? To demonstrate to the other person you really care about what they have to say and to show them that you are listening and…
  • #8. Are you sending welcoming vibes to your animals?

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:56 am
    No one wants to be around a grumpy, angry, or stressed out person. That includes your animals or any of those you wish to connect with. Which is why it's so important to create the right mood before communicating. Amelia Kinkade recommends summoning the deep love you have for the animal as one of the first steps. Marta Williams suggests beginning with a positive thought or affirmation. Christophe Ambrosino offers an interesting method of always beginning with happiness so that animals will be open or attracted to you rather than repelled or closed. Whichever method you use, it does seem like…
