 tuna melts my heart

Found on the side of a road in San Diego, he was a shadow of his current self. Tuna, who’s human bff is Courtney Dasher, found his luck changed the day an option agency brought him to a Farmers Market. It was love at first sight for Dasher who reckons he's loved because “he's so unconventional looking and because of his unique features he makes people laugh”. She reckons he “captivates people's hearts”.

But he's not just a cool pup, he's on a mission to help other rescue puppies just like him. Raising awareness for animal adoption through fundraising, writing books and travelling around doing appearances are his and Courtney's way of giving back. Find him on Instagram making all sorts of crazy faces @tunameltsmyheart

Coconut oil for your puppy!?!

Coconut can heal skin ailments, improve digestive health, and boost the immune systems and this doesn't just apply to humans!

Doggy Coconut oil

    HOORAY!

    So what can you do for your pet?

    Add coconut oil to your pets food to help improve their digestion, promote a healthy coat, increase energy, reduce body odor and bad breath and lesson symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. Start by introducing 1/4 a teaspoon initially and increase to a full teaspoon for dogs up to 10 pounds. Feed as a treat or mix in with food.

    Rub it into their skin will minimize itchy, dry skin, eczema, reduce skin allergies, and fungal infections, and help in healing wounds. Bonus will be smooth skin and a soft, shiny coat. If your pet has dry paw pads, or nose you can apply it here too. OR if you just want to give your pet a luxurious mask then massage a coat of coconut oil in, leave for 5 mins (or however long your pet will stand still for you!) and shampoo out.

    Cremation Jewellery - the origins!

    Mourning Jewelry as it was once called (in some parts of the world, still is) is a general term for jewelry that people have used over centuries as a way of honoring and remembering deceased loved ones. It has been around since the 1600’s and the earliest known pieces were hand rings. Pearls were particularly favored as they were thought to represent tears and sadness.

    Cremation jewelry began to gain momentum during the Victorian Age - named after Queen Victoria who reigned from 1837 until her death in 1901. Victoria’s husband Prince Albert died of typhoid in 1861. The Queen went into full mourning for 3 years along with her court and remained in mourning for the rest of her life. The Victorians were extremely superstitious, especially where death was concerned and hung black drapes over all the mirrors in the house when in mourning. It was said that if you looked into a mirror when a body was in the house, you would be the next person to die. Cremation Jewelry was popular in England during this era and in the United States during the Civil War hair work was a symbolic art that often served as a keepsake or a "love token" to show affection, commemorate the loss of a loved one or to keep a loved one close during times of physical separation. 

    The first style of cremation jewelry involved intricately woven hair. Today, most people use a piece of hair or some cremains or ashes as they are more commonly known. Historically hair ‘art’ often served as a love token or keepsake to show affection or commemorate loss or during times of physical separations like war. When people died, hair was often clipped from the head of a deceased person and then woven into a bonnet that would be given to the next of kin.

    Nowadays hair is still used in keepsakes and remembrance jewelry but it is more common to use ashes or cremains. The type of jewelry we (www.celtic-ashes.com) offer is bespoke and entirely unique to the wearer and the deceased because it fuses the ash (which for every single person is different) with glass and this fusion creates not a mold but a unique shape, texture and color.
