History Flight's Cadaver Dog Search on USMC Cemetery 27 Tarawa – HOLLY NOTE: Ask any canine owner – or rather the people owned by canines – whether dogs rule. They have no agenda and only want to help. This is yet another brilliant example. Buster is the only dog to ever search a Pacific WW2 battlefield. Buster and Paul have also worked in France, Belgium, Germany and Holland. They have recovered 7 Americans from Belgium last year. Kudos to Buster and his dad, Paul. This top image is Paul saying "Buster, do you want to work?" The bottom is Buster taking off like a shot to help. 4-leggeds truly are man's best friend. The following video is Buster working a trench burial of US Marines on Tarawa. This is the back story. Be blessed.

Coconut Oil in Your Pet's Diet  – HOLLY NOTE: This is the miracle ingredient for dog's (and people's) health. Our last two suffered from dry skin and constant scratching even though they were getting high quality food and plenty of water. Last year we began giving Bella and Jayzbo each 1T of coconut oil with their food. The original dosage we heard was 1 tsp/10 pounds of body weight, but working up to that amount gradually. Even gradually introduced, 5 tsp gave then diarrhea. Their coats are unbelievably shiny and soft, no scratching and no flaking or dry skin anywhere. For 2-legged and 4-leggeds in the high desert, that's saying quite a lot.

Every year, people write in with similar tales or messages of "thanks for the info, I never knew…" ALL dog and cat treats – jerky and rawhide from China – should be banned for the death traps they are.

Bubonic Plague Hits New Mexico Dogs – HOLLY NOTE: This is entirely too close to Colorado. We put flea collars on Jayzbo and Bella today as the liquid stuff – Advantix and Frontline that actually goes into their bodies – is what gave Taco cancer 3 years ago. Please see page 3 of this .pdf Are “Spot-On” Flea Killers Safe? as it names ingredients in these products as carcinogens. It took Taco losing her life to find out we were giving she and her brother deadly poison. UPDATE: One day later, flea collars are off. Hartz contains Methoprene that can cause liver damage. Food grade Diatomacious Earth (H/T Sherry C.) is alternative, but fleas would be on your pet 3 days during which time they could infect your 4-leggeds as DE takes that long to kill pests. Also, see this Essential Oils blend. (H/T Alec C.)

We now have their successors, Jayzbo and Bella, NOT their replacements, for each dog is his/her own person. To this day and beyond, Seismo's and Taco's message lives on. China still produces poisonous products that kills animals and people alike – sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly. Be safe, be smart. Shun ALL things from China. Support American businesses (see these USA buying lists) and leave China-Mart (Wal-Mart) in the dirt.

There was nothing Chaz wouldn't do for someone as Charlie had the biggest heart ever. It was actually he and his wife, Val, who started Ballarat Wildlife Park http://www.wildlifepark.com.au/ though credit is often given to their son, Greg. That would have been Chaz' doing as he always wanted others to shine. On Friday nights, Stan and I used to play cards with them and talk about 'life, death and the universe'. Stan and Charlie remained lifelong friends until his passing a few years ago and one of our last evenings spent in Australia, was with Chaz and Val.
