“She was nice to me so I made something nice for her.” ~Lucy Hanson

Lucy is only 5 years old but has the soul of a wise women. Listen to her story about Hoku and apply it to who ever you are with today.
On Being Nice First ~ Just Like the Dog Wags Just Because
How many times has someone done something nice to you and you didn’t take the time to do something nice back? Or how many times have you thought about doing something nice and that’s where it stopped. You just thought about it.
This includes your dog’s ability to make you smile with the authentic joy of just seeing you come home, no matter what mood you arrive on the scene wearing.
Dogs give us great joy in their ability to except each day as it is and truly revel in moments of joy. Take note and emulate the behavior. It will reward you greatly.
On Sharing with Others
Pay it forward. As we receive blessings, of any kind, share those with others. That is the best “return on investment ” we can have. Love and kindness are the biggest investment. Do something good for someone, everyday, and the rewards will be much better than any interest rate on a bank account, and amazingly enough this will bring you the abundance you’ve desperately been trying to acquire.
Big Island Dog Beach Shack
This week at Big Island Dog Beach Shack at the Alii Gardens Marketplace Kailua, Kona Hawaii I’m offering a free dog food cooking class. Our dogs are part of our family and their health and longevity become part of our own joy. *note sign up even if you aren’t in Hawaii, there will be video teaching true nourishment for dogs for you too!
For too long we’ve been excepting big dollar marketing in the dog world as absolute truth. We’ve been told we MUST feed our dogs kibble because it contains the correct vitamins and minerals for a dog’s well being. Never mind that there is no other nourishment in the processed food that many times comes from road kill, diseased animals and a whole lot of “meal” products from corn to we’re not sure what it is! Even a premium dog food is processed, processed, processed and takes a toll over time on the liver.
Adding the right vitamins and minerals is really easy and real food is way more nourishing than any McDoggie kibble diet.
Sign up for my Dog Food Cooking Class and find out how to add things like calcium and omegas and coconut oil to your dog’s real food diet.
Do something nice for your dog since your dog is nice to you everyday!
Stop the itching, scratching, licking madness and increase the years your dog has with you. Everyone will wag more!
*By the way, I’m VERY interested in your dog’s struggles with itching, scratching, licking, ear troubles, any of that. Answer these three questions specific to your dog and I’ll send you information on how to best treat your dog using natural remedies. Or tell me your story in the comments below!
Much Aloha to you and your dog.
