Wheelchairs for Dogs
 by: Ian Major
Dogs, they are always our beloved pets, but sometimes they are more than just pets. Our dogs love us unconditionally, and protect us when they feel danger is approaching. We buy them sweaters to keep them warm in the winter, and boots to keep them dry in the rain.
They are our substitute children and they are our lives. That is why when they are in need of a little extra help getting around like wheelchairs for dogs, we go out of our way to get the very best ones.
Accidents
Every year, thousands of dogs, both young and old, fall prey to hip and joint injuries. Some are caused by genetics, and others are caused by accidents with vehicles driven by distracted drivers. In some cases, it leaves the dog with limited use or no use of their legs. That is why more and more people are turning to wheelchairs for dogs.
Gain Mobility With Wheelchairs For Dogs
For many years, the dogs would be immobile, staying in one place, relying on their masters to move them from place to place. Some owners would simply be put to sleep instead of watching them whither away. Within past decades, the development in wheelchairs for dogs have given our beloved pets their freedom to move again.
Custom Made Wheelchairs For Dogs
A doggie wheel chair is a wheelchair that is custom made for each dog. It is a special device that attaches with a harness to the body of the dog, and a sling that supports the dogs failing limbs. A doggie wheelchair allows him to have the freedom and mobility to go wherever allowed. With a doggie wheelchair, dogs can once again have an enjoyable life.
Hand Crafted Wheelchairs For Dogs
A doggie wheelchair is handcrafted to the exact measurement of each dog, and come in all shapes sizes, and can even be painted the dogs' favorite color.
Whether the dog is male or female makes a difference also, as they wheelchair is built to accommodate bodily functions.
Assistance To All
Wheelchairs for dogs can support not only the hindquarters of an injured dog, but even all four limbs. It is a more intricate design for all four legs however. Doggie wheelchairs can accommodate any dog. There are no known circumstances where a dog could not be assisted by these fantastic devices.
The Many Benefits Of Wheelchairs For Dogs
A big dog can benefit from these wheelchairs even more than a small dog can, as it is more difficult for the owner of a big dog to carry them around from place to place. wheelchairs for dogs give dogs back their independence and makes both the owner and the dog very happy.
Dependency
Veterinarians recommend a doggie wheelchair only when therapy and rehabilitation fail. It is used as a last resort. Because a dog can become dependant on wheelchairs for dogs, vets will not recommend one if there is any hope of them regaining the use of their limbs on their own.
Survey
Surveys of pet owners whose dogs use wheelchairs for dogs overwhelmingly agree that it is the best thing that they could do for their dogs. They witness a puppy like behavior when they are romping around the yard or chasing their favorite ball.
Our dogs depend on us for everything and in return, they greet us when we come home from work with wagging tails and hanging tongues. It is gratifying to an owner of an injured dog to know that he or she can give something back that will make them just as happy by providing something as simple as wheelchairs for dogs.

How to Correct Your Dog's Stay on the Agility Starting Line [26 Jun 2008|06:11am]

How to Correct Your Dog's Stay on the Agility Starting Line
 by: Brad Carlson
Does your Agility Dog Stay everywhere but on the starting line? My "over the edge Border Collie", started breaking her start line stays after about one year of trialing. I had to go back and examine the cause and what lead to the deterioration of her start line stay.
As I pull pieces of the past, I realize that at first I asked my dog, Rip, to Sit-stay at the start line. But she began to lean and scoot, so I changed to a Down-stay. She did this for a while until she began to crawl and creep. Then I would walk away for a lead out, but I would continue to face her, by being face to face, that would help her to hold her position, well it did for a while. Then I started getting breakaways, she would no longer wait at the starting line, as soon as I started to step away from her side, and she would be off. That's when I pulled her from trialing.
Why did her behavior get worse at the start line? Because I started to negotiate with my dog, way back when she moved from the Sit-stay, I should have made it clear that the Sit -stay was the only behavior that would bring the reward of running agility. What I mistook as, "Oh, I'm asking too much for my edgy dog to Sit-Stay on the line." She took as, "Mom, doesn't really mean what she says when we're in this fenced ring with lots of people around." So, she began to test every behavior I asked for on the line. Dogs will do what we allow.
If your dog begins to break its start-line stay, whether that is a stand, sit, or down, STOP immediately. Don't run your run. I know you've paid your entry fees, but you'll be spending a lot more time and money fixing the problem when it gets worse. For some dogs, taking them off the course is deterrent enough to get back on track. For other dogs you may have to "train" your stay in the ring, of course you also, may be called for training and excused from the ring, but it's most important that your dog know that the fun can not and will not start until the Stay stays.

Five Secrets for the Very Best Cat Food [20 Jun 2008|03:11pm]

Five Secrets for the Very Best Cat Food
 by: Fred Ege
There is a significant difference between dog and cat food even though their may appear to look the same. Cats need a much higher amount of protein and fat than dogs do. Also, cats have different needs than dogs, so don't feed your cat dog food, or your dog cat food. Remember, Cats are primarily carnivores and need plenty of meat in their diet. Here is what to look for when you are deciding what to feed your furry friends.
Avoid Cat Food Fillers
Cats need to eat food that is rich in protein, so make sure the amount of fillers is kept to a minimum. Carbohydrate rich food is not good for your cat, so don't buy cat food that is full of them. Instead, read the labels and buy a cat food that is not filled with fillers and other by products. Even when a cat food is high in protein, it doesn't mean that the protein comes from a meat source. Avoid those blends which contain a lot of wheat or rice, and look for a meat source as the first ingredient.
Cats Need Protein
Your cat food should always be rich in protein. The protein should come from a meat source such as poultry or fish, and should be the first ingredient. Many cat food brands advertise chicken, beef, and tuna flavored cat food because they know that cats need protein and cat owners are looking for quality cat food. However, you need to make sure the cat food you buy has a sufficient amount of protein regardless of what flavor it is. Also, some will list chicken as the first ingredient, however, when it is listed as "chicken" this means raw meat. Approximately 70% of it is water, so when it is cooked with the other ingredients, chicken will probably really be the 5th to 7th ingredient.
Look for Taurine content
Check the cat food you buy for an amino acid called taurine. This amino acid is very important in your cat's overall health, and your cat will eat as much food as it has to in order to supplement this particular amino acid. So, if you are buying cheap cat food that does not have the proper nutrients your cat will eat a lot in order to get the nutrients it needs. If you buy a nutrient rich cat food then your cat will eat less and save you more money while still getting proper nutrition, and probably not gaining a lot of weight either. Look for taurine on the ingredient label.
Canned or Dry Cat Food?
Cats should be fed a mixture of both dry and canned food. The dry cat food should be given for free feeding. Canned cat food should be use as a supplement at meal time because it has extra water in the food. Look for canned cat food that has a high amount of protein from a meat source. You can mix and match with dry and canned cat food as long as they have a high nutrient density. Cats should always have access to water, and you should consider having an extra bowl of water always available.
FUS/ Crystals
Cats are subject to FUS, crystals that can cause urinary tract disease and pain. Feline formulas should be carefully designed to reduce or eliminate this problem through low magnesium and low ash, correct pH levels and high digestibility. Look at the percentage of magnesium and ash on the label of what you are feeding your cat. You can also play a major role in controlling this problem by always having fresh water available. Cats drink and store water differently from dogs. They store body water in highly concentrated urine. High concentrations can lead to crystal formation. In our work with cat owners, we find there are several ways to enhance water intake to reduce problems:
- Always keep fresh water readily available, 24 hours a day.
- Place food and water dishes several feet apart and feed and water in a quiet area.
- Place a second water dish close to your cat's favorite spot.
- Feed canned cat food (to provide additional moisture content) for one of the meals.
- Leave dry kibble available at all times.
Cats will nibble/feed between 10-20 times throughout the day and night. Eating over an extended time also allows for continuous water intake to balance the food intake.
Summary
Here's what to look for:
- High protein and high fat content.
- Meat as the first ingredient.
- Avoid those blends which contain a lot of wheat or rice fillers.
- High Taurine content.
- Low Magnesium and low ash content.

Considering a Pet Bird? Ask Yourself These 7 Critical Questions [11 Jun 2008|05:11pm]

Considering a Pet Bird? Ask Yourself These 7 Critical Questions
 by: Simon Blake
Birds can make wonderful pets and companions and there are many different birds to choose from. Two of the most popular are cockatiels and parakeets. Cockatiels and parakeets make wonderful pets that only require simple daily care. They don't take up a lot of space, they eat small amounts of food, and they don't require a daily walk outside. They love being around people and often want out of their cages just so they can be closer to you. Some even learn to talk.
You're not alone in considering a pet bird. In fact, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA), birds are the 3rd most popular pet behind cats and dogs.
It all sounds great doesn't it? Slow down a little bit, before you rush out to buy a cockatiel or a parakeet, take some time to think about whether or not you are ready for a bird companion. There are a few things for you to consider before you decide if you're ready for the responsibilities that comes with parakeets and cockatiels.
Do yourself a favor and don't buy a parakeet or cockatiel until you ask yourself the following questions:
Do I have enough patience for a bird? Cockatiels and parakeets are social animals and they like attention. You should give them at least a half an hour of attention a day to keep them happy.
Am I a neat freak? All birds (not just cockatiels and parakeets) can be fairly messy. You're probably going to have some feathers and bird seed to pick up around the cage.
Can I care for my bird properly? You're taking the right first step by looking for information about birds. It's important for you to know all of your cockatiel's or parakeet's needs before you bring him or her home.
Don't make the mistake of assuming that since you already have a dog, cat or some other pet, that you know how to take care of a bird. Birds have very different needs than other pets. I'm afraid it's a little more complicated than sticking your bird in a cage and giving it water and birdseed.
Do I have room in my house for a bird cage and other 'bird accessories"? You need to think about where you're going to place the cage in your house before you walk in the door with it. And remember, the bigger the bird, the bigger the cage. (Be sure to study the do's and don't of cage placement. There are places in your house that are very dangerous for your bird.)
Do I have the time to give my bird what it needs? In addition to the time you should spend with your bird giving him or her attention, you should spend some time preparing meals for your bird. A proper diet for a healthy cockatiel or parakeet includes fresh vegetables and fruits - not just seeds.
Exactly what type of bird (and how many) do I want? Decide whether you want a female or a male bird. Maybe you would like to have a pair of birds so that you can breed them. It's easier to think through these types of questions now instead of waiting until you're talking to a breeder.
Am I ready for a long-term commitment? As I said above, it's not unusual for cockatiels to live 15-20 years and parakeets can live 12-14 years. Getting a pet bird is a long-term commitment. Please don't get a cockatiel or a parakeet thinking that you're going to "try it for a while". There are already too many birds in rescue and adoption centers.
Pet birds can bring a lot of fun and happiness into your home. If you don't know what to expect before you bring one home, you may be in for a surprise. However, if you've gone through the checklist above and decided that you're ready for a new feathered family member, then congratulations! Get ready for a long, loving and happy relationship.

Eloise Song [17 Oct 2007|09:43pm]

Well, this community doesn't look too active, but I'll give this a shot anyway. Has anyone an idea if the Eloise song from 1956 is available anywhere? Anywhere at all? Here's the official info and the lyrics, if that helps:

My Visit to the Plaza [19 Jul 2006|12:05am]

hollywoodchuck
[ mood | sleepy ]

I just found this comunity & thought I'd tell everyone about my visit to The Plaza this past weekend.

2 of my friends & I planned a little weekend trip to New York (I live in Canada so it's not far) & I was like 'I MUST see The Plaza when we're there!' My 1 friend totally put a damper on things because she said it was closed; but I remained faithful.

I guess I should mention I didn't really know about Eloise until I watched Eloise at the Plaza when it first aired on TV. I'm a big sucker for that movie & love the girl who plays Eloise, Sofia Vassilieva. We sell the books at the toy store I work at, so I read them after & they are sooo cute. (I think Sofia was a good Eloise, but that is me personally.) My work then put Eloise Has a Bawth in it's annual book sale so I bought it & it's the only Eloise book I own. Anyhoo.

So, on the 1st day we're walking through Central Park, north to south, & know what we see? Those horse & buggy deals she rides with the Prince in the movie! So cool. The Plaza is right across from Central Park & I actually made a giant gasp when I saw it. The same friend was like 'gwad, everyone knows we're tourists now!'

I was so convinced to go inside. I wanted to see the little shoes (they bring out if you ask 'where's Eloise?') & the painting soooo badly. So, we go to the entrance but no avail. There is a guardsman standing there & he tips his hat (I took a photo) & there is a sign that says 'The Plaza is currently closed for construction.' Sad, non?

We sat at a fountain across the street & while there I observed the building. All the windows are gone, even on the tippy top floor. There is a giant sign saying how it's being turned into apartment buildings. (http://www.theplazaresidences.com/) The sign shows a photo of a lady with her daughter, with blonde hair. A somewhat Eloise, I thought. There is lots of scaffolding,

Overall I was very sad & disappointed I didn't make it there earlier. I find it sad The Plaza has come to this. I hope they still keep the Eloise things & maybe I can go back & see them. I can't see why they would destroy them though.

Anyways, hope you all enjoyed my story.

Cheers, Carly

A Frightening Rumor [24 Sep 2005|12:35pm]

esc_key
I have loved the Eloise books ever since I was a child. They are absolutely hysterical. Lately, I've been seeing a lot of Eloise merchandise at bookstores. At first I get excited, but then when I look at it more I realize it's just not the same. It's sort of depressing.

I was told that Hilary Knight was working on another Eloise book (a follow up to Eloise Takes a Bawth, that he did by himself since Ms. Thompson died). That made me happy because although Bawth was not my favorite of the books it was still in the spirit of the originals. And I love Mr. Knight's artwork.

But recently I heard a rumor that Mr. Knight has been FIRED from the project. Apparently he is very upset about it. This makes me very sad.

Poor Eloise. They've taken Kay, the Plaza and now Hilary from her.

Hiya! I'm new and I was really surprised to find an Eloise community. It seems pretty quiet, but since I wasn't expecting one at all I'm very happy :D

Anyway, my name is Eloise, and when I was little it was always great to read a book with my name in it, especially as it's not exactly a common name (have you any idea how many different and incorrect spellings and pronunciations I've had to put up with?) I was born in New Jersey, which (since I'm guessing most of you are Americans) probably doesn't seem like it's all that close to New York, but since I live in Scotland, it seems pretty close to me :P Strangely enough, I was named without my parents having even seen the book.

Anyway, I've only got "Eloise" and I didn't even know any other books existed. So, I'm guessing there's other ones. Is there a certain order they should be read in? Also, what's this about movies? I'm sure I would have seen something about it over here, were they tv movies, or just really old ones? And are they just in America and would there be any chance of getting them over here?

Sorry, you all seem like pretty big fans and here's me waltzing in and asking a lot of stupid questions :P

Everyone knows that the Plaza is closing, right? Is anyone planning to visit the home of Eloise before it closes? Has anyone been there before? I'll be in NY the week before it is scheduled to shut down and I really want to go, but I'm afraid it will be horribly busy.

Eloise screencaps [27 Jan 2005|01:41am]

olivia_cochrane
I only took 49 of Eloise at the Plaza, but I was a lot more thorough with Eloise at Christmastime: 194 screencaps. That said, I'm not sure what you guys think about the movies; you seem like an Eloise-book-oriented community, but since none of my friends seem to be interested, I thought I'd find some Eloise fans and see whether anyone would like to see, or take. They're in my photobucket album, here.
