"Unlimited appeal; the songs are there to be savored." - Cross Country Magazine (UK)

"What's not to like!" - KCR Radio (Scotland)

"Glasmire continues to come up with competent Country/Americana offerings and this album is up there with his best. The song writing is of the highest order, includes excellent musicians and is certainly worth a listen."- Maverick Magazine (UK)

"An amiable cat that fits comfortably into the Country-Rock/Americana/Folk vibe, he found his voice in Texas after years of . . . trying to fit into round holes with his square pegs. Easy rolling stuff that always feels at home particularly after a tough day. This is a solid set to mellow out with . . . Well done." - Midwest Record Entertainment

"Five stars. Never has an album title better encapsulated the range of a singer/songwriter's talent. There is not a bad song among these different takes on love in all of its joy, disappointment and teachable moments." - Stacy's Music Row Report

"With his music, his pleasant voice and his accessible, intuitive texts about things that are universal, Mark knows how to bind a large number of fans worldwide. I hope that he continues to do so in this way for years to come."- Radio Compagnie (NL)

Rescuing Tweety or Helping Bugs Feel Better

BEFORE Veterinary Help is Available

OCTOBER 22nd, 2018…Two new books and online classes have been unveiled by Denise Fleck, the Pet Safety Crusader™, to help you help your smaller family members in the event of injury or illness and BEFORE you can get to veterinary care! “Basic Bird First Aid” and “First Aid Basics for Rabbits and Pocket Pets” provide the 4-1-1 you need to know should you share your life with or care for a bird, rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, mouse or rat. The books and classes teach you how to check vitals and provide an overview into the care and basic needs for each species as well as susceptibilities to illness or injury. In addition to the books, the author has recorded two instructional webinars to help you grasp these basic skills at your own pace. After successful completion of a multiple choice and true/false exam, you will receive a certificate stating you have completed the training.

“Over the years, I have had scores of students use lessons learned in my classes to save an animal in need, and that is the best reward. Up until now that has been mostly dogs and cats, so I want to make sure humans also know how to care for our feathered as well as our tiniest furry best friends,” Fleck explains.

And besides helping pet parents, Fleck want to make sure pet sitters are true professionals continuing to up their education with certificate courses. “I also offer trainings in Dog & Cat First Aid, Senior Pet Care and Pet Disaster Preparedness because as cliché as it may sound, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail, and I feel it is so important that pet parents and sitters can react confidently using whatever is available at arm’s length. That could include improvising a splint, muzzle, bandage or pet transport, so being able to think on your feet comes with non-stop learning,” Fleck professes.

Having personally taught close to 20,000 humans and millions more on national TV, Fleck’s mission is to help YOU make a difference in the life of an animal through her books and courses. Denise has appeared widely on radio & TV (The Doctors, CNN Headline News, Animal Planet, Kirstie Alley's Big Life and had a weekly segment on KTLA in Los Angeles for several years), has written for pet publications/blogs and authored a dozen books. In 2018, she was named one of Pet Age Magazine's "Women of Influence," Voyage Atlanta Magazine’s “Most Inspiring Story” and won two special awards from the Cat Writers Association. With a soft spot for our older best friends, Denise serves as the President of the Grey Muzzle Organization (aiding senior dogs) and on the boards of both the Emma Zen Foundation (pet oxygen masks) and Thankful Paws (educating on proper procedures for establishing pet food banks).

Topics covered in “First Aid Basics for Rabbits & Pocket Pets” and “Basic Bird First Aid” include:

ü  Attacks by Another Animals

ü  Bleeding (including Blood Feathers)

ü  Bone & Back Injuries

ü  Burns

ü  Breathing Difficulties & CPR

ü  Bumblefoot

ü  Dehydration & Diarrhea

ü  Egg Straining

ü  G.I. Stasis

ü  Heatstroke

ü  Poisoning

ü  Regurgitation vs Vomiting

ü  Shock

Both books are available in living color on Amazon while you can learn more about and register for the online classes at www.PetSafetyCrusader.com/products/classes/

 

Growing up, the only pets I was allowed to have were fish. It’s hard to grow attached to those.
Rottweiler puppy, Woodrow, on Lorraine’s lap.
Many years later, I was visiting friends. They had just gotten a Rottweiler puppy from the people at the bottom of the hill, and she sure was cute!! After hearing me say so, our friends took us to visit the puppies. It wasn’t my intention to get a dog. I had never even considered owning a dog. Yet when I sat down to play with the puppies, one leaped into my lap and chose me. Repeatedly, he returned to my lap, even when he was put with the other puppies. And so, Woodrow was mine. And I was his. 
 
With Woody at my side, I learned so much about life and dogs. I learned…
  • If you treat dogs like family, they believe they are.
  • Dogs are good judges of character. Their reactions to strangers at the door should be taken seriously.
  • Stereotypes don’t necessarily apply. Rottweilers are only mean dogs if you raise them to be mean dogs. But not Woodrow; he loved the mailman, the vet, kids, and dressing up for Halloween!
  • Dogs teach us life-changing lessons: the meaning of unconditional love, how to greet someone with enthusiasm, and how to enjoy simple pleasures such as the sights, sounds, and relaxation that can be found in the back yard or a walk down the street.
Woodrow plays with the kids.
At about age 10, Woodrow began taking Glucosamine for the start of canine hip dysplasia and canine arthritis.  As he became a senior dog – at about age 14, that was no longer enough. Inside the house, Woody began to have difficulty standing and walking. It tore at my heart that “my puppy” (I called him that even on his last day, and he believed it) struggled to stand up or walk on the hardwood and tile in our home. I was consumed by the need to find a traction aid for him. I checked the pet stores, asked our vet, and searched the web. With no viable solutions available anywhere, I did what I had to do…I invented Power Paws! They gave Woody the ability to stand without any struggle, and to go where he wanted when he wanted. That is quality of life!!
 
In honor of my puppy, I present Woodrow Wear. This business is his legacy, and is absolutely dedicated to the millions of older dogs that have traction and mobility issues, and to their owners, who like me, are unable to just sit there and watch them struggle!
 
Woodrow Wear is also dedicated to the younger dogs who may also find traction useful, to the dog owners who want to protect their hardwood floors from scratches, and to the fashion-conscious owners who want their dogs to be suitably dressed in attractive, cute, and fun socks.  It’s for the dogs with nerve, spine, and ligament issues, whose need for traction can happen at any age.  Surprisingly, it’s also for the dogs with allergies, and the dogs living in areas of extreme heat or cold — Power Paws give them the ability to go out into the dust and pollen with little reaction, or into the snow without ice/salt issues, and into the heat without burning their pads. Power Paws Reinforced Foot, our newest and most durable solution, protects the whole foot even more than our other products for rugged use and on abrasive surfaces.
 
Always driven to help more dogs, we have become known as “A Company of Firsts”. We are the first to offer:
  • 13 total sizes
  • 2 distinct foot shapes
  • a reinforced toe product (Power Paws Advanced)
  • a reinforced whole foot product (Power Paws Reinforced Foot)
  • a non-drug allergy solution
  • a stretchable, breathable, comfortable product that dogs don’t mind wearing
Woodrow and I promise to never stop looking for the next way to add quality and comfort to your pet’s life.  We’ll invent new products and partner with others when that makes sense.  I promise to continue taking your feedback and suggestions, and to keep you posted on our activities. I encourage you to check back often for updates.  If you sign up for the newsletter, you’ll be among the first to know what’s new, get our special promo offers, etc.  For faster updates and even more special offers, like us on Facebook or Twitter!
 
I loved Woodrow more than I ever thought a person could love a pet. I shared a bond with him that I hope this page and the “Who’s Woodrow” page expresses. Welcome to our world!
– Lorraine

Praise for Mark Winik's Debut Novel The Dog Healers

FINALLY! A truly powerful heroine. Mark Winik’s debut novel is the suspense packed story of a fierce young healer named Isabella who can breathe life into ailing dogs and turn race horses into champions.

In the tradition of Eva Peron, she ignores her Argentinian culture's ideas about female roles, plunging into the shadowy reaches of the horse racing world where thugs would turn her gift into riches. To her, money is just the means to her dream: creating a haven for all dogs, be they wretched, ill or aggressive. Isabella wields wit and charisma among society ladies, twisting gold-braceleted arms for donations, exerting a still greater spell on men.

This includes her handsome protégé Carlos, who yearns for the love Isabella shares with her dogs. But her dogs are her allies as villainous threats mount. Isabella faces the fight of her life, but when you've got dogs at your back, you're never alone.                                                            

Mark Winik is an entrepreneur and an internationally recognized, award-winning author of The Dog Healers. His inspiration for the story struck him on a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina with his wife Norma where he met a dog handler named Carlos.

Carlos taught him an Ancient Tibetan technique on his dogs called Kum Nye. This gift of healing so captivated Mark that he knew he had to write about his experience and share it with others. Since its publish, The Dog Healers was awarded 2017 Pet Novel of the Year at The New York Pet Fashion Show and has received praise from Hampton Pet’s Publisher Gregg Oehler, NYC Mayor’s Alliance for Animals, Pet Philanthropy Circle and appeared in the summer reads “Editors Picks” in New Haven Magazine.

Mark has been interviewed by Pet Life Radio’s Animal Writes with Tim Link, DogCast Radio and Top Dog Tips. Mark is also the conceptual artist for his collection of The Dog Healers cartoons in collaboration with his illustrator, Ivan Camilli, and is also working on a documentary related to the book that aims to share the stories of individuals who have overcome significant trauma or life difficulties with the support of their therapy dog. The Dog Healers Facebook page currently entertains more than 30,000 followers.

The Souls of Animals

In this revised second edition of this celebrated book, Unitarian Universalist minister Gary Kowalski grapples with the big spiritual questions around our relationship with animals: Do animals have souls? Are they aware of death and are they conscious of themselves? Do animals have an inherent capacity to recognize beauty and can they create art? Do animals experience love? Do they know right from wrong? Why do birds sing? And ultimately what do we lose in a world without animals and what does that mean for our ongoing relationship with the creatures with which we share the world?

Kowalski offers beautifully written vignettes that shed light on these questions and much more. He explores how animals play, their sense of altruism, their capacity for love. By “desacrilizing” animals, Kowalski argues, we make ourselves less human. “If we are to keep our family homestead — Earth — safe for coming generations,” he writes, “we must awaken to a new respect for the family of life.” Praise for The Souls of Animals includes:

“Gary Kowalski helps us unlock the mysteries of animal spirituality. For as we have learned from the companion animals that share our lives and our homes, when we look into their eyes we see the reflection of our won humanity.”

—Kim Stallwood, Executive Director, PETA

“Gary Kowalski’s voice is one that empowers us to say in public what we have thought in private — that animals love their companions, know grief and hoy and play and create. The are truly our bothers and sisters in fur, feather and fin.”

—Tom Regan, author of The Case for Animal Rights

“This is an important book because it is so revealing of the animal soul that touches ours when we are open and receptive. In the process, our own souls are enriched.”

    Dr. Michael W. Fox, former vice president, the Humane Society of the United States

Gary Kowalski is a Unitarian Universalist minister in Burlington, VT. He holds degrees from Harvard College and Harvard Divinity School. A native of Oklahoma, he has served churches in Memphis, Tennessee, and Seattle, Washington, before moving to Burlington. He is the author of several books, including Goodbye Friend: Healing Wisdom For Anyone Who Has Ever Lost A Pet, also published by New World Library.

Felisept is a natural stress-reliever for cats of all breeds, colors, and sizes. Made with an extract of the mint plant we all know as "catnip", this plant is a natural attractant for cats and other feline species that helps create a sense of calm for them. When used in a cat's environment, Felisept can help curb their unwanted behavior that is often caused by feeling stressed. Felisept is available in two options to better suit your long-term or short-term needs. Try the fast-acting Felisept Spray to make travel and vet visits less troublesome for you and your cat, or plug in the long-lasting Felisept Diffuser to help your cat relax at home. Stress at home can be caused by many things for your cat, including: • Fireworks • Thunderstorms • New family members • Welcoming a new pet • Rearranged furniture • Animals outside in the yard

 

Stress can make us do crazy things, and it can affect our cats just as easily. While they don't have the same causes of stress we humans do such as work, money, and relationships, there are many other things in your cat's life and environment that can cause stress. How do you know if he's stressed? Luckily, cats show certain unusual behavior when something is bothering them, behavior that you might easily notice.

Here are 10 tell-tale behavioral signs from PetMD that your cat could be stressed out:

  1. Urinating Outside of the Litter Box
    If your cat is usually very good about keeping it in the box and you notice he's decided to urinate it other places around the house, he's probably trying to tell you something.
  2. Going Too Much, or Not Enough
    Diarrhea, constipation, and other digestive problems are not pleasant for you or your cat, and could be indicative of several possible things.
  3. Licking Til Fur is Gone
    Cats are known to groom themselves carefully and often, but no animal should lick to the point of bald patches or raw skin. This is a clear sign of stress, and should call for a trip to the vet instead of the groomer.
  4. Overly Scratching
    Too much scratching of himself can be just as bad as compulsive licking.
  5. Hiding From the Humans
    Cats are naturally aloof, but a cat that actively hides from you and everyone else in the house is likely hiding out of stress. Time to get him into a cat carrier and have a vet take a look.
  6. Talking More Than Ever
    Some cats are talkers, while others speak more rarely. If his meows are unusually long, panicked, or happening in recurring bouts, he's literally trying to tell you something. Your vet should be able to "crack the kitty language code".
  7. Eating Less or Not at All
    Humans may fast and go on diets, but cats are always going to be regular eaters--unless something is wrong. You'll want to see a vet very soon, especially if he stops eating entirely.
  8. Napping All Day & All Night
    They CAN sleep up to 20 hours per day, but that doesn't mean all cats will. No one knows your cat's sleeping schedule better than you. If you notice him suddenly sleeping more or being very lethargic, it could be stressed induced.
  9. Starting Fights with Other Pets
    They play rough, but real aggression between animals that are usually peaceful cohabitants of your home could be a sign that one of them is stressed or ill.
  10. Getting Aggressive with YOU
    Your favorite fluffy lap warmer decided to get aggressive with you? Try not to get personally offended. Stressed and sick animals may get suddenly aggressive with the humans they love, too. If this happens, it may be best to consult your vet quickly, before it gets out of hand.

Our Story

 

Beach Dogs

Debbie Guardian is president and founder of Opie & Dixie®, a pet product line that focuses on natural and USDA Certified Organic healing balms, grooming aids and non-dietary care solutions designed for pets and tested by humans. As a child growing up in various countries throughout Latin America and the Far East, Debbie’s family always included many interesting pets – cats, dogs, parakeets, fish, turtles, a white mouse, and at one point, a parrot. Her lifelong compassion for animals led Debbie to explore holistic pet care for her beloved Dachshund-Lab rescue mixes, Opal (Opie) and Dixie. The more she studied, the more impassioned and knowledgeable she became about the subject of animal wellness. It was this passion that in 2008 led her to develop her own line of all-natural, chemical-free skin care treatments and grooming products for dogs and cats.

While Debbie’s beloved Opie recently departed the land of earthly fire hydrants and dog parks for off-leash romps amid the clouds, Dixie, Nu, and husband, Alex remain by her side for inspiration and to share her love, ideas, and new products with.

When Cara felt her teenaged children slipping away and saw an empty nest on the horizon, she decided the best way to fill that void was with dogs—lots of them—and so her foster journey began.

            In 2015, her Pennsylvania farm became a haven for Operation Paws for Homes and a whirlwind of incredible dogs. There were the nine puppies that arrived with less than a day’s notice; a heart-worm positive dog; a deeply traumatized stray pup from Iraq; shy boys and mischievous girls; and countless others who just needed a gentle touch and warm place to sleep. The dogs that entered Cara’s home were rescue dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural south and needed a foster family as a midway point on their journey while they waited for their forever home.

            With wit and humor, Another Good Dog reveals a saga that began on an impulse and led to an epiphany that there wasn’t just one dog that could fill the hole left in Cara’s heart—there were dozens! The stories of these remarkable dogs and the joy they bring to Cara and her family (along with a few chewed sofa cushions) fill the pages of this touching and inspiring new book that reveals the wonderful rewards of fostering.

            When asked how she can possibly say goodbye to that many lovable pups, Cara says, “If I don’t give this one away, I can’t possibly save another.”

“A big hearted, inspiring and passionate look at a critical piece of the rescue puzzle. Lucky are the dogs who pass through Cara Sue Achterberg’s arms on their way to the lives they so richly deserve. Honest and engaging.” —Peter Zheutlin, New York Times bestselling author of Rescue Road

“As expected, the narrative revolves around tales of dogs and puppies. What’s unexpected are Achterberg’s personal reveals. The stories and photos will delight.”—Publishers Weekly


“Heartwarming. Illustrated with photographs of some of Achterberg's many fosters, this book blends insight and entertainment to tell an unforgettable story about seeking, and finding, life purpose through caring for abandoned dogs. A compassionate and humane canine tale.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Achterberg has in fact written another good book about dogs, but even more so she has produced a manifesto on how to change the world: through single acts of caring and compassion stacked one on top of another without end.”—Jim Gorant, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Dogs

Pegasus will publish on August 7, 2018. Cara lives in York County, Pennsylvania.

            Cara will be touring with her dog up and down the east coast, visiting the “rescue route” many of her dogs travel from high kill shelters as they make their way towards foster and forever homes as part of Operation Paws for Home, who will share in the proceeds from this book. Exact tour details forthcoming. I look forward to being in touch about this very special and heartwarming project!
