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.

    We LOVE Pete the Vet!

    Product review from Pete the Vet : looking after your pet’s remains after their death in a novel way – “cremation jewellery”

    We all dread that day when we finally need to say goodbye to our pets. It’s always a difficult time, and on top of the emotional distress, there’s that difficult decision to make: what to do with your pet’s remains? It’s a difficult subject, and it probably makes sense to consider it in advance, so that when that moment comes, you have already given serious consideration to the various options. Your decision on the day will then be clearer and easier.

    Generally, there are three main choices:

    Burial at home - this suits some people, perhaps with smaller pets and with bigger gardens, but for many of us, it’s just not practical

    Cremation – with ashes being returned. This option is the most popular for many people with a deep attachment to their pet.

    Cremation – with ashes not being returned. Many people feel that they would not know what to do with their pet’s ashes, and they don’t feel the need to have them returned to them. And of course, there’s an extra cost to have pets’ ashes returned, and people may not be in a position to afford to do it.

    At the time of your pet’s death, your vet will usually discuss each of these three options with you, and they will help you make the necessary arrangements in place.

    If you do decide to ask for your pet’s ashes to be returned to you, what will you do with them? Some people scatter the ashes in a favourite place, while others keep the ashes at home, perhaps with a sample of their pet’s fur and some of their possessions, such as a collar or a toy.

    Today’s product review is about a novel alternative for what to do with your pet’s ashes: you can have some of them incorporated into jewellery.  Have you ever heard the Rainbow Bridge story? Well if you haven’t and have suffered pet loss then you should visit www.rainbowbridge-memorials.com: you’ll be able to read all about the Rainbow Bridge, as well as learning about Jennifer’s novel way of remembering your pet.

    Dubliner Jennifer Muldowney created Rainbow Bridge Memorials when her pet dog of 16 years, Roxy died in 2009. A friend shared the story of Rainbow Bridge with Jennifer and it helped her to heal and continues to inspire her collection of pet memorials.

    Jennifer’s collection includes a number of colourful jewellery pieces, from pendants to charms made from the cremated ashes of pets fused with glass. The fusion of ash with the glass creates a cloud like effect, ensuring that each piece is unique and individual to you and your pet. You can add different colours or charms to make it even more personal: just ask Jennifer and she’ll explain how this can be done.

    When you make a purchase on the website – www.rainbowbridge-memorials.com you are sent a Rainbow Pack so that you can send Jennifer and her team a small amount of your pet’s ashes. All postage is included in the price of €160 (or €240 for 9ct gold) and each order is handmade separately.

    Cremation Jewellery isn't for everyone, but if you are looking for a different way to remember your pet, it’s certainly worth considering.

    Putting a Pet to sleep

    Putting a beloved pet to sleep has to be one of life's worse decisions. I still to this day think of Roxy and when we chose to put her down nearly 6 years ago. It kills me. She went to sleep looking into my and my mother's eyes and part of me still wonders was she asking "why are you doing this to me?" or was she saying "thank you". I will never know. This video has me crying my eyes out into the keyboard as I type this because it brought back ALL the memories I had pushed down trying to forget but I never will. We had Roxy for 16 years - I grew up with her and she will always be my sister. This video will break your heart if you love animals so watch with a tissue.
