Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Pet Pamperings

For all us pet owners, is there not a day during which we do not love or pamper our pet(s)? The name itself - pet - says enough on its own. Our reward is the soft purrs and looks of contentment. While many say animals are expressionless, I totally disagree. You just have to be attuned to their body language. A flick of the tail, flattened or side movements of the ears, barking, meows, and purring say a lot. These are common behaviors that require only learning how to read them. So, get ready for some pet pampering today and watch how your pet lets you know...

February 20 is...
Love Your Pet Day!

My name is Foxie. Do you have a treat for me?
Did you know that most households in the United States have at least one pet? Approximately 39% of US households own at least one dog and 33% own at least one cat. Pets provide wonderful companionship and can actually help decrease blood pressure and stress.

 A little more to the right pur-r-r-eaze!

Today is the official day for pampering your pet with a little extra love and affection to show him or her just how much you care. Give your pet a favorite treat (maybe even 2, 3, more...), provide conversation with music in the background, buy your furry friend a new outfit (dogs, yes; cats, um-m-m-m?), groom away the tangled fur with extra attention around the ears, treat the 'little' guy or gal like a celebrity!

Thank you for my fur-r-r-tastic bed!
So whether you have a cat, dog, hamster, rabbit, bird, reptile, or goldfish, or any combination, shower them all with love and affection today! Just curl up next to one (or more if you did not stop with only one) and make this an arf-fully, purr-fectly wonderful day.

How can it get any better than this?
 Smile! Happy Love Your Pet Day!
