Waterfalls Close to Home September 1, 2011

Im sure many Southern Californians do not know these waterfalls exist, yet they are huge! Once you climb up enough to get to the waterfall, you can feel the air get lighter and cooler. Here in Cali it has been getting over a hundred degrees everyday, so going to the waterfall was a great idea. It is 70 feet tall, and it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. If you live any where by a mountain there is a chance for a waterfall. The place we went to is called Bonita Falls, but is in the town of Lytle Creek. It is less than a mile off the road so it is fairly easy. It cost me $5 to park, and they gave me a map of the waterfalls at the ranger station. Its too hard to explain in anything but pictures!!

All Natural Dog Treats-Blue Dog Bakery and Old Mother Hubbard May 26, 2011

Before I had done a post about Alaska Bakery Dog Treats, and recently at PetSmart I found these cute little organic dog treas, and had to buy them. The price was what got me to buy them, the big box was only $2.99 and the small bagg was $1.59. I really enjoy the thought of organic dog treats because they are so much healthier for my furry friends! The brand of the first is Blue Dog Bakery shaped like little animals, and the second is Old Mother Hubbard Baking Co.












I thought it would be funny to have my pitbull Twelve Gage show off some of his tricks while expressing his love for the new found treats.His tricks include, shake his hand, jump 180 degree turn, rollover, play dead, close the door, catch it off his nose, high five, and he wants to learn tons more. If you have any good dog tricks I can teach him, let me know! I always want to keep his brain moving!

 

Weighing down the pounds: part 2 April 14, 2011

      

So Everyone needs an excercising buddy, and mine happens to be an American Pitbull Terrier. His name is Gage, and We go up to a hill close behind the college in town. (only after stretching of course). He loves to run and feel the open air, and that alone makes me feel better about life. I am not fond of excercising, but seeing how much he loves it, it makes me like it a little.

So today I’m going to talk about moderate excercise. There are a wide variety of ways to moderately excercise including, riding a bike, jogging, hiking, swimming, jumping on a trampoline,aerobics, pilates, yoga, rollar skating, skateboarding, playing a sport that you love. I find it best to love what your doing when you excercise, then it doesn’t seem like a chore.

So start with some stretches, so you don’t pull any muscles.

Then begin your excercising, and do it for at least half an hour. Don’t overdo yourself, but keep your heart rate up and feel the burn! =)

You can do more than one thing in a day, if you wish. I try to do three different things each week for 30 minutes. I ride a bike one day, hike with my puppy another day, and jog the third day. Keeping at least three days for excercising is not too much, and not too little. Then you have days in between to relax. Remember excercising isn’t about getting skinny. Its about feeling good in your body, loving who you are, and having more energy when you wake up the next day.

I am not fond of excercising but its important to live a healthy lifestyle. It is good for your heart to excercise, and helps maintain the blood flow to be normal. I know it’s hard to fit it into your weekly routine. Once you do, you will feel more energy at work and school and have more time to spend with loved ones, then sleeping. I will be posting a post on extreme excercise next.

The pitbull has too short of hair for fleas. But the small one has a major problem with fleas, always about this time of year. I can only imagine all the fleas she brings in with her. I have finally found a good way to rid of them, without any harmful sprays, creams, or chemicals of anykind. This contraption is called a fleatrap. Made from myfleatrap. I am seriously considering buying this for her. All pet owners (dogs or cats) should check this out. Fleas can bite humans as well! I hate bugs that bite!! So here is a link in the picture for the site, and below is also a video about the contraption they call a fleatrap! Finally a solution to these pests!
