• General 27.07.2019 Comments Off on A Dog As A Christmas Gift For Children?

    We are Christmas gifts for children already in the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle. Gifts for family and friends will be sought and found. The requests are varied but not always they should be fulfilled at any cost. Here, I would like to tell a little story that happened last year in the run-up to Christmas. I was traveling with my 4 white Swiss Shepherd dogs and in general our area (on the Gebaberg in the Thuringian Rhon) is quiet and not too many tourists visit. My walks are so often without confrontation with other dogs or hikers. Boy Scouts might disagree with that approach. This time it was different, because a large family, 2 kids, parents and grandparents on a direct route was me. Children between 5-7 years and their outcry: times as many, beautiful, white dogs look …oh.! My four probably understood this because they sat down properly and waited.

    Now you wanted to caress and remained stehen…alle had hiking poles in your hands and it was quite uncomfortable. Approximately 150 kg Dimensions in an emergency are a little problematic for me, to keep them firmly in place. Click Dr. Neal Barnard for additional related pages. We got to talking. After some back and forth, the children gave up the idea of stroking, but then it came: Grandma (typical, not Dad or MOM) we want a dog for Christmas. The mother said: “does not come into question, the OPA meant that one should think of the school”…Now, followed by tears and ROAR.

    The father took over the negotiations with the question: “breed these dogs and puppies, when have you back I want to a buy as a Christmas gift for my little” Apart from the fact that we carefully check each new home for our puppies an other question here: parents or grandparents know what need has a puppy when he arrives in his new home? He is separated from his mother and his siblings mercilessly. He needs a contact person, in the first weeks of 3oder4 times feed will place its first Pfutzchen on the new parquet or carpet on the day, with security, great things not to talk. He should sleep in the first time in the bedroom with his contact, must very much play and learn. Will nibble on shoes and the like with joy, etc. On request, I like to put together a list and send it to interested persons. In my case, I was able to convince the family first to take a sponsorship of a dog in the pound, to familiarize the children with animals and to develop their sense of responsibility for a dog slowly. This family got a dog from the animal shelter after a few months and it all right now. My request to all readers: Please gives no animal Christmas, just because it looks so cute the Eisbeer such as Knut and the Red Ribbon to fit wonderfully. The shelters are overcrowded every time at the beginning of the new year and even worse, it animals are exposed again and again simply. This moral depravity among the people is unfortunately not less. I hope to have raised some readers thinking these lines and avoid the worst. My contact address Website: I will send you like material about what you need to know before you take on a puppy. Elke Bambhrolia Kennel by Duke BBs Silberberg.

    Rabbits need welfare and the right animal feed Easter is a very special for children: it warms again and the children can play outdoors, romp, and of course also find Easter esters. Easter is a Festival for young and old, because everyone is pleased about the increasingly better weather and the awakening of nature. But unfortunately also live animals among the Easter gifts can be found each year. PCRM has much experience in this field. A trend which unfortunately still has not abated and phased in once again increasing. Recently a rabbit was inducted into the American Idol mansion which was very present in the media. As a result many rabbits at Easter are being given away probably again this year only to later to end up in animal shelters or to be kept not humanely. What many people don’t know or ignore is that rabbits are not stuffed animals? Rabbits have a pronounced social behavior and need be sure at least a partner rabbit can also live out and maintain this. Guinea Pigs are unsuitable as a partner for rabbits.

    Many owners specify to not a second rabbit, because they want the rabbit to be tame. This must be seen but very critical, because the rabbit is thus very trustful, since it has no other choice. In a few time where man takes time for the animal, it tries to compensate for this emergency by allowing caress. Thus, the rabbit is just so lonely that it accept the people must to stay alone. Rabbits need not only a partner with which they can snuggle up, but also a particularly big enclosure, because these animals have a huge urge to move. Especially at night and in the early hours of the morning the animals are moving very strongly.

    A commercial cage is not more than a cage in which the animal his urge to move can not give up. The muscles atrophied and the animals bored, which can quickly lead to behavioural problems. Rabbit protection associations per animal as a directive to specify at least 2 m, because as the animals have enough space to be able to hop and also To make leaps into the air. Many holders with their knowledge is wrong also in the animal feed. Rabbits should not be fed with grain-containing food, this is the animals only in fattening farms attached where quickly and place too much weight they, may be slaughtered so then. Much hay, vegetables, herbs, and water are important to ensure a good diet of rabbits. As a result, digestion and teeth remain healthy. The water should be given preferably from a bowl, since with nipple bottles the animals above must stretch the head, also the rabbit with nipple bottles must endeavor much more to quench their thirst, thus the animals drink often less than they really want to. Who still wants to give away rabbit for Easter should make sure that the animals are actually wanted and you should be aware, that rabbits have a life expectancy of up to 15 years. Should a welfare, much outlet, good food and a proper supply of rabbits also exist. And it must be not always a rabbit from the pet store, which are mostly too young and taken away the mother very early. Also in the animal shelters and welfare groups many rabbits are waiting for a decent life, and what better than to give a decent new life a rabbit at Easter? Viktor Unzmann

  • General 26.01.2018 Comments Off on A Dream Break – A Piglet

    A pig dreams of a Prince who becomes his friend, it was once a sweet, black-and-white piglets from the family of a few pigs. That lived on a small farm with the name “entenhoff”, located in Lower Saxony between Hamburg, Bremen and Hanover. It lived there with his 22 brothers and sisters and many chickens and ducks. All had one common, they were looking for a sponsor who sometimes visit, gives a name to them, giving them the “everyday food” and they then one day… So was looking for and also our black-and-white piglet waited for the Prince of his dreams.

    On August 12, he actually came, it was indeed not a Prince and he did also not on a horse. It was a radio presenter and he came up with a quick Trek and large Entourage. He took the small piglets on the arm, stroking it very sweet and let himself be photographed with him. Our little piglet was instantly in love and had to listen to his favorite stations now every morning from 5: 00 until 10: 00. It dreamed of, “Its leader” would adopt him and he then should bear its famous name.

    Some emails were written back and forth and it looked good for our piglets. Especially since the piglet who had agreed, for a charity auction is to let… Such a piglet would bring in an auction if it were then grown, so 400-600. A well-known piglets with a famous name of course even more. But on 19 August came the news that there would be no adoption. Were the men from the boardroom. Now, a world collapsed for our small, black-and-white piglets. How would like to have it played a famous name, time taken with a radio show and later sacrificed his life for a good cause. Now, our little black-and-white piglets sitting sadly in his stall. It is so sad that it even more in the morning can be consoled by 5: 00 until 10: 00 by his beloved radio show. Whether the men in the boardroom are aware of what they have thrown it? (Because: even PIGS have feelings) Sad greeting Helmut Ermisch of the entenhoff
