Rocky Ridge Refuge by Labavenger

Rocky Ridge Refuge: Heaven on Earth for animals

How do you picture heaven ? Do you imagine seeing your loved ones after you are gone? Well my vision of heaven is a bit different. Yes I want to see family members and friends again, but for me heaven will never be complete if all animals are not there. 

Yes, the exact same animals that were abused, forgotten, surrendered, and left to die while on this planet. 

Being a volunteer at my local No Kill Animal Shelter  I see every time how animals care so much about us humans. They follow us around and lick our faces, even if they feel sad and lonely themselves. Animals are such wonderful and loving creatures, that there is no doubt in my mind that a true caring God will have all those magnificent creatures living eternally in heaven. 

On this messed up planet  there are very few places that can truly be considered as ¨Heaven on Earth¨ for animals. For me Rocky Ridge Refuge in Midway, Arkansas is exactly that, a safe place for all kinds of rescued animals. 

At this pawsome refuge you can find, deer, lambs, capibaras, dogs, amongst many other species of animals. 

In my mind Janice Wolf the wonderful soul behind  Rocky Ridge  has already secured her place in heaven right next to God himself. 

I´m not really a religious person, but anybody as wonderful as her surely deserves to go to heaven and dwell there with all animals forever. 

Please consider adopting one of the wonderful animals at Rocky Ridge, and don´t forget to thank Janice Wolf for everything she does whenever you go to Arkansas.

Pet Corrector by Labavenger

Pet Corrector: A harmless solution for excessive barking ?

The Company of Animals Pet Corrector ()

Dogs are great and we as animal lovers love them, but sometimes even the most enthusiastic pet lover might find constant barking annoying. 

Yes dogs have a much more sensitive sense of hearing, and yes high pitch noises surely trigger all the ¨alarms¨ in a dog´s brain and provoke barking.
Even stuff that we as humans don´t find important, like a bird in our backyard will make your dog bark. 

So what to do to prevent/reduce this behavior?

Well, you should play often with your pet. A few minutes a day playing with a ball or a chew toy will do wonders.

You have to remember that your dog needs exercise to feel well physically and mentally. This will help reduce barking up to a certain point.

But what if after the exercise and the walks in the park (with a leash of course) your pooch still barks like crazy? 

Here is where the Pet Corrector comes in. But how does it work? 

The Pet Corrector is a can  filled with compressed air that emits a  “HISS” sound. This sound supposedly emulates a predator´s sound in nature, which sends a signal to the dog´s brain to quit barking. This device 
is harmless according to the manufacturer, and if you are tired of  your dog´s (or your neighbor's dog) barking I say it´s worth the try. 

Just a reminder: Before using the Pet Corrector or any other method to reduce barking, ask your vet if it´s safe for your dog.
