Grieving Loss of Pet ~ Heartbreak At Home

"Noni, inside I know it's over, you're really gone. It's killing me 'cause there ain't nothing that I can do. Noni Noni I stay in love with you! It cuts so deep. It hurts down to my soul. I ain't the same no more. Can't get over you now no matter what I do. Noni Noni, I'll stay in love with you." M.Carey ~ Mommy
Last night for the first time in seven years, my dearest friend, our uncommonly beautiful rescued Rottweiler, Noni was not at my heels to follow me up to bed. He'd passed away in his sleep the previous morning. I discovered his lifeless body and was inconsolable with grief.

Losing a family member is never easy. And while thoughtful, words from well meaning friends and family just seem inadequate. As morning comes ~ your feet touch the floor without the pitter-patter of precious paws that for so long have surely followed.

Your finger tips and palms long for the touch of soft velvety ears just once more. And your body aches to feel your friend brushing slowly by you. Wet nose kisses and his soft tongue licking your chin are all but a distant memory. Just the thought of no more lingering walks in a park kissed by morning's dew, conjures up so much pain.

Heartfelt thanks for your calls, texts & beautiful messages. We know our Noni is in doggie heaven telling all the other pets how wonderful his life was and how loved he is. Lawrence and I are forever blessed to have experienced all that was our perfect Noni. Though we feel alone today, I keep hearing my heavenly father's comforting voice telling me, "I'll never leave you nor forsake you." And we encourage anyone experiencing extreme depression and difficulty coping with their loss, to immediately seek help through grief counseling provided by local churches, the Humane Society and Veterinarian Hospitals.

And we cordially invite you to make a donation to your local Humane Society today, to help a forsaken, forgotten pet feel loved ...Tell em' Noni sent you. (Find a link here.)

For those of us who know the devastating sorrow of losing a beloved pet, be encouraged to take comfort in the billions of tender moments of loving kindness you must have shared. Close your eyes and continue to see only the bounty of memories. Those memories will surely last a lifetime. ~ Rest In Peace Dearest Noni.

Remember to contact your Local Humane Society today, because this season and every season, some furry friend needs you now more than ever.

Pet Insurance ~ A Pet Lover's Must In Case He Chokes On A Popsicle Stick

Why is Pet Insurance ~ Most Essential For Pet Owners?!!!!!

As a traveling pet owner, one of the most important things you can do is ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible prior to traveling. But, what happens if your pet is injured or struck with a sudden illness while you are traveling?

FACT: Every 6 seconds, a pet owner is faced with a veterinarian bill over $1,000!

Unexpected vet expenses can be difficult at any time, but they are especially challenging for traveling pet owners. With pet insurance, if your pet gets sick or has an accident while you are at home or away, you can go to any licensed veterinarian in the United States and Canada for treatment. Knowing that your pet's medical expenses are covered brings tremendous peace of mind, making pet insurance an invaluable asset to the traveling pet owner.

Five things to consider when choosing pet insurance:

1.) Does the policy cover all chronic, congenital and hereditary conditions?
2.) Is there a time limit on treatment per condition?
3.) Is there a dollar limit on treatment per condition?
4.) Are there flexible coverage options to fit your budget and needs exactly?
5.) How well established is the company? How is it rated?

You love your pets and your friends at Tastes & Tours and ShopFoodAndTravel.com/pets believe protecting them is most important.
Protecting your dog or cat takes more than providing a balanced diet, ensuring plenty of exercise and scheduling regular checkups. Having cat or dog insurance means being prepared for the cost of an unexpected accident or illness.

Pet Allergies - Pooch and Kitty Allergies - Get Ready!

"My mom's not much of a stairclimber when she's sneezing all the time. It all started when she met and fell for me. The sneezing was uncontrollable. I was paw-sitively touched by her constant tears. Turns out, it was allergies." ~ Noni This time last year I was miserable. Runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, headache, you name it. Allergy sufferers know what I'm talking about. And don't even get me started on all the prescription meds that are supposed to help. Unless your allergies are minor, drugs are pretty worthless. Unless your goal is to go to sleep. Fortunately, I found a miracle herb (Ganoderma- Ilixir of Life) that's hidden in a delicious healthy coffee and teas; and it tastes incredible. More importantly, this coffee and tea has changed my life. I never sneeze anymore and haven't done anything differently other than enjoy a cup of coffee or tea whenever I want. (But that's another blog.) Dogs, and to a certain extent cats, deal with allergies, too. Unlike us though, dogs and cats usually react to allergies by scratching. While we sneeze, they lick, bite, chew, scratch and rub. Chronic ear infections are also common with allergic dogs, as is licking the pads of the feet.

It really doesn't matter whether the allergy is to pollen, mold, carpet or food, itching is the most common sign of allergy in dogs. Noni was allergic to rice. Regardless of the fine brand of lamb and rice dog food we chose for him. So, we switched to a homemade salmon and sweet potato diet And the scratching ceased. Of course there are many other causes of itching and they all have to be ruled out before a diagnosis of allergy can be made.

So, pay attention to your best friends. If they seem lethargic, you've got a problem. Hurry to the vet. And pay close attention to their temperatures as spring is sprung.

Get everything you need for allergy season!
