How They Show Their Feelings

Friday, May 23, 2008

As a dog lover, I always observe my pet. I can see how he reacts when I'm around. Everytime he sees me coming he'll start barking and jump with overjoy. If only he can speak, he might be saying, "Hello Mommy, good to see you. Hug me please." Yes, I know that sounds crazy, but when you really try to figure it out, why is he being like that?

What I always do when I am free is that I bring him inside my room. I let him play all over my bed. And when I lay down, he will come into me and lick or kiss me all over. And when I start to play a drama, like covering my face, he'll bark so loud and will start to murmur. I love it when I have him and when I whisper to his ears and he'll turn back just like saying "Hey, you wanna kiss huh?" and then he'll kiss me.

There are times, when he feels down. Just like when I go into him, but just tale me for granted. When I see him being like that, i wonder and feel sorry. I guess, because he thinks I never love him anymore. So what I always do is to cuddle him up and kiss him all over. And the last thing I is that, he's there smiling all over and kisses me back!

It's so overwhelming when you know that there's someone who takes your stress away. Like my dog, who always give a huge smile on me.

Why Chocolates Bad for Your Dog's Health?

Humans love chocolates. We crave for chocolates and love to taste the sweetness they bring. I admit I'm one of chocolate fanatic and always buy loads of and them store them on the fridge. But if chocolate makes us feel good, well, not for dogs, it's a big NO NO.

So why are they bad for your dog's health?- Chocolates contain methylxanthine alkaloids in the form of theobromine and caffeinea, which are toxic to dogs. They can also contain high amounts of fat which can put your dogs health in jeopardy as well. This means that when a dog takes or have eaten chocolates, they will experience vomiting and diarrhea to panting, excessive thirst and urination, hyperactivity, abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures and even death in severe cases.

If your dog has eaten a considerable amount of chocolate, or displays any of the above symptoms, take her to the vet right away. If her symptoms are minor, make her eat activated charcoal. The unabsorbed theobromine binds to it and be passed out of the system. (In a pinch, burnt - as in thoroughly blackened - toast will do.)

I myself don't know about this fact before. That's why I did once let my dog ate chocolates. Thank God nothing happened to him. Now that I know, well, it's a wake call... I would never ever feed him chocolates. ;)
