    More and more pet owners are taking their pets along on their vacation rather than leaving them at home. And these days, more and more areas and establishments are opening their doors to welcome your pawed friends. One of the most common places everybody loves to go is the beach. Surely, you would love to take your pets along on your trip to the beach. Here are some tips for bringing your pets along to the beach.

    Look for Pet-friendly Beaches

    First off, you need to know if a certain beach is pet- friendly or not. Some beaches allow pets while most of them dont. Do your own research ahead so you wont have to be surprised to find out that your pet cant swim at the beach with you. Check out the rules and regulations regarding pets in the area you want to go to before you take your pet with you. Otherwise, you will receive hefty fines and citations for not following these rules.

    Pet Rules and Regulations

    The foremost reason why most beaches do not allow pets is because most people disregard leash laws. Check out the beachs rules regarding leash on pets. Some beaches allow pets to roam free as long as you keep an eye on them while most beaches dont. It is best that your pet is secured and leashed to avoid conflict with other pet owners and other people in the area. Always keep your pet leashed when there is a leash law.

    Be a Responsible Pet Owner

    That said, be a responsible pet owner when taking your pets with not just at the beach but anywhere you decide to bring them along. Make sure your pet does not bother other people or other pets in the area. You also have to make sure that your pet is well-behaved and is comfortable in the environment youre taking them to.

    Cleaning Up

    Always clean up after your pet. Surely, you dont want to come across dog waste while enjoying your stay at the beach. Have respect for other beach goers by making sure you clean up after your pet. Whenever you visit a dog-friendly beach, always bring a bag or pooper scooper and be sure to clean up after your pets. Most beaches impose a fine on people who fail to clean up after their pets. Make sure to remove poop, do not bury or leave it.

    These are just some of the tips when bringing your pets to pet-friendly beaches. Be a responsible pet owner to your pet and a considerate person to other beach goers.

    Witnessing animal neglect or abuse can be a heart wrenching experience. For those who love animals it is difficult to understand why it happens. However, no matter if one understands it or not, they have a responsibility to stop or report the abuse if they observe it happening. The key is education on the prevention of cruelty to animals and how to deal with this horrid experience, not only for the animals and their safety, but to make sure that the person committing the crime is punished.

    The first place that should be contacted when one has witnessed animal neglect is the local humane shelter. They have the power to enforce the animal cruelty laws that exist in almost all states and subsequently hold the abuser responsible for their actions.

    They can be fined and even put in jail depending on how strict the laws are in the state where the abuse took place. The only way that the humane shelter will know about the neglect in the community is through the eyes and ears of the community members.

    If a person lives in a rural area that does not actually have a humane shelter that they can contact, then they should still report the abuse. They can do this by contacting their local police department.

    They also have the jurisdiction to make sure that the animal laws against cruelty are enforced. Another place to check if one does not feel comfortable contacting the police is a website that can help locate a local animal care organization. Two of these sites are “Pet Finder” and “Pets 911”.

    The world of animal neglect is a sad thing. So many times people overlook animal abuse or cruelty because they are not sure what to do. With just a phone call one can help an animal who is in need.

    Even farm animals horses and other livestock are covered by the animal laws that exist in most places. One only has to take the initiative to keep the animals safe. They are counting on us.

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a resort in Walt Disney World Resort Florida, which opened on April 16, 2001. It is what Disney refers to as a “deluxe” resort, meaning the highest level. It is African themed and intended to pair with the Animal Kingdom theme park which is located nearby. >

    One of the most unique aspects of this resort is the capacity for visitors and guests to watch African wildlife graze in the various savannas of the resort. In fact guest with a “savanna view” room can watch the animals from their room. Meanwhile guests can watch them from observation areas in and near the lobby.

    Peter Dominick was the architect for the hotel. He also designed the Wilderness Lodge, which guests will note bears a striking resemblance to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Additionally he designed the Grand California Hotel and Spa in Disneyland in California.

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge is also home to Disney Vacation Club properties. Disney Vacation Club, or DVC, is Disney’s timeshare program. Initially this program was limited to what is called “Jambo House,” the rooms of which are all in the original building. However guests can now stay in a separate building called Kidani Village which is a DVC only property. This new building has its own savannas with unique wildlife.

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge offers an experience very unique from most of the other resorts in Walt Disney World. The resort is an attraction in and of itself, with all the wildlife and activities. The resort itself boasts amazing detail as well as historical artifacts from Africa.

    If you are considering a Walt Disney World vacation, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge may be right for you. It is usually competitively priced for a deluxe resort. The only real downside to the resort is that it is located relatively distantly from the rest of the properties. Otherwise this can be a great vacation for any family.

    Up until about 5 years ago I was gutting every big game that I was harvesting every year. I’d do the same procedure every time I’d start at the bottom of the stomach and cut my way up the ponch then I’d do the nasty deed of removing the anal intestine and everything down in that area. Boy that was something that I never looked forward to every year.

    It wasn’t until I went hunting with a great friend of mine and he asked me what I was doing as I proceeded to open up the ponch. I told him I was gutting this deer, he started laughing at me and said “I’ll teach you a ten times easier way that’s less nasty and much faster.” He then proceeded to quarter out my deer and was finished in less then 15 minutes flat. I stood there amazed because not only did he quarter that deer out super fast he had almost no blood, gut juice, stomach goo or anything else you get on you when you gut a big game animal. I was sold after that and have never gutted another big animal after that day.

    Last year after my father killed his big 6 point elk, we sat there arguing over whether we should gut it and come back tomorrow or hurry and quarter it out before we leave. It was getting dark fast so as you can imagine the argument got heated. I won the argument and ended up quarting him and coming back the next day. It did take a little longer than normal because of the size of the elk but it was definitely less stinky and dirty than gutting the elk.

    Whose to say what’s the best method sometimes it depends on where you kill the animal and the size of the animal. If you kill a big animal 5 miles in the back country obviously it’s a no brainer but if you’re lucky enough to be able to get your truck or 4 wheeler up to it then why not take it out whole. I’ve never been lucky enough to able to just back my truck up to the animal.

    Both ways have their pros and cons and it just comes down to personal preference or the location of the animal. Something to think this hunting season as you’re about ready to take the knife to your animal.

    Be safe and good hunting to everyone!

    If you want to control animal dander, your first line of defense may be to choose fish, a lizard, or a snake for a pet. But if you are reading this with a warm furry body lying on your foot or near your chair, or there are a pair of big beautiful eyes looking up adoringly at you, its probably way too late to make a change in your choice of pet. But not to worry, an animal dander air purifier can help you keep up with the dander that your warm-blooded, furry, or feathered friend is constantly producing, and here are 5 features you’ll want it to have to help insure its effectiveness.

    Has a Low Maintenance Filter Make sure that the inner filter is a low maintenance filter that does not require washing, cleaning, or frequent changing. Washing or cleaning a filter that has accumulated dander means releasing the very dander that you are trying to eliminate into the air again. Frequent filter changes add to the cost of maintaining the unit. For best results the filter should require little or no maintenance, at most optional vacuuming from the outside several times a month to pull large particles away from the pre-filter.

    Uses a Pre-Filter in the Filtration Process Using a pre-filter as part of the filtration process extends the life of the inner filter and saves you money. The pre-filter is designed to remove big particles, many of which you can see, and means that the inner filter is allowed to be effective longer because it does not become prematurely clogged with particulates that are just as effectively trapped with a pre-filter.

    Produces Only Fresh Air as a By-Product The technology that is used by hospitals and has been proven to be the safest technology is high efficiency particle arresting or HEPA technology. It removes particulates such as animal dander and other normal household pollutants such as household dust, dust mites, mold and mildew spores, pollen, bacteria and viruses all as small as .3 microns exchanging your dander-filled air with air that is as clean and fresh as it can be. And clean air is the only by-product produced from this process.

    Is Made of Steel Steel housing, rather than plastic, means that once the motor heats up the housing it will not off-gas harmful chemicals as sometimes occurs with plastic housing. Steel also means less of a chance that your animal will be able to chew off pieces, and choke or worse.

    Is Guaranteed to Last A substantial warranty indicates that it has been effective and the manufacturer is willing to stand behind it for an extended period of times (years) and replace any parts that are needed to make it work. It also prevents having to constantly replace the purifier.

  • Dolphin Stuffed Animal Toys & Maui Dolphin Facts

    Comments Off on Dolphin Stuffed Animal Toys & Maui Dolphin Facts

    The great thing about having a dolphin stuffed animal, is that you never have to leave your house ‘in search’ of the real thing. With a dolphin stuffed animal to call your own, you are given the daily pleasure of seeing its friendly, smiling face whenever you want to.

    One might not think that dolphins are an endangered species, given it’s not the animal that makes it into the news with disturbing stories of its near extinction. However, there is a species of dolphin Maui dolphin’s which could disappear altogether unless more steps are taken to protect it.

    Maui dolphins are considered to be the rarest marine animal in the world with just 111 individuals left. They can only be found living along the west coast of North Island in New Zealand. Thanks to fishing nets and the dolphins inability to detect the mesh [of the nets], over the last few decades, their population has been dying off following their numbered entanglements and drownings inside those very same nets. The Maui dolphins South Island cousin Hector’s dolphins are also in danger, given their population numbers have dropped from 26,000 in the 1970s to 7, 270 today.

    The WWF (World Wildlife Foundation), has been actively pressuring the New Zealand government since 2002 to take away the threats facing both dolphin species. After years of delays the government finally decided to act and as of October 1, 2008, net and trawl fishing were banned in many more of the ranges Maui and Hector’s dolphins can be found in. While these new measures mean fewer dolphins will die as the result of getting caught in fishing nets, it is still not enough for the dolphin populations to recover. According to scientists, at the most, the Hector’s dolphin population will just remain as is with the new protections in place.

    To ensure outright survival and remove the risk of extinction altogether, net fishing needs to be completely banned in the dolphins’ range. With the current protections, Maui dolphins will still not be protected inside harbors or in the southern parts of their range and along the west coast, Hector’s dolphins will still have to deal with both trawl fishing and set nets. While the Marine Programme Manager for WWF-New Zealand is thrilled the government has taken the protection measures they have, it is only a first step in trying to stave off all out extinction.

    Wouldn’t it be lovely to purchase a dolphin stuffed animal, knowing the real thing did not face so much uncertainty in the wild? If only the dolphins that roam the oceans could live the same storied existence as a dolphin stuffed animal, we could all sleep a little better at night not having to worry about what humans are doing to the planet.
