People who have large dogs often have the same problem – not enough space inside the house. Big dogs need bigger space not just for lounging but also for moving around and doing their daily routine. Even if you have a large home, it is not advisable to keep your large dog inside especially if you have small children too. Some households without kids may permit their large pets inside the house especially if there is enough space for everyone. However, for practicality and for everyone’s safety, many families decide to get their furry pals large doghouses that can be set up outside theRead More →

Image via https://stewingpot.files.wordpress.com I found this video on a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ControversialFiles), it is about an island in the Pacific ocean 2000 km from any other coast line. Nobody lives in the said island. It has become a bird sanctuary and yet, each of the birds are dying with what seem to be what they are eating. It’s a rather depressing reality. Watch only if you can stomach morbid scenes.  Read More →

Image: Our tank at home Having to choose between natural and artificial plants can be an aquarium decoration dilemma for new aquarium owners. They both have good and bad points that will affect not just the look of one’s aquarium but also its living conditions. Here is a look on what real and plastic plants have to offer. Real or live plants are the preference of the older generation specially the ones who grew up from the 60’s to the 80’s. Back then there was no other option except real aquatic plants for their tanks. Having live plants in the tank helps create a naturalRead More →

  It’s easy to miss the letters that spell “Google” on the railroad tracks of this doodle but not the message of loyalty conveyed by the scraggly dog holding on to his master’s hat. The story of the Akita Dog that remained faithful to his owner even after death is truly remarkable that it became a legend in Japan. Hachiko’s loyalty has been honored in his country in so many ways. In 1934 a bronze statue created by famed Japanese artist Ando Teru and placed at the Shibuya Station where Hachiko waited for his friend and master, Professor Ueno. Hachiko passed away about a yearRead More →

Image: Markus, our silver arowana It’s been years since we last had an arowana at home. Superstitions aside, since we don’t really believe in those, hubby and I took it in simply because we just saw it a fish shop, for the first time. Out of being spontaneous we just took this in much to the kids delight. They named this silver arowana, Marcus. Friends and visitors find the arowana a curious fish. Most would ask what kind of a fish it is as this amazonian dweller is rarely available in our region. Having one, we learned that these predators are high jumpers. That’s howRead More →

There are dogs that are cute, there are those that are elegant and there are dogs that are…handsome. I think of an Akita Inu as the latter and as a proud, laid back breed. Its broad, fox-like head which are always looking up shows how confident they are. Thus goes for their pointy ears as though they are very keen. They have curled up tails that adds cuteness and somehow a contrast to their exuding a strong personality.  Akita Inus seldom bark, they are very friendly and playful, especially in the snow. Though they don’t warm up easily to strangers…you will definitely find them charming…Read More →

Studies have shown that owning a pet comes with health benefits for both kids and adults at home. Caring for pets helps reduce stress and anxiety, provides companionship, boosts immunity for allergies (though I’m still too afraid to risk…having an asthmatic kid), and gives a regular dose of physical activity through play. One of the most popular, and probably the best, pet that you can have for the family is a dog. These four legged furry pals are intelligent, loyal, and playful. All these come with a unique personality which makes it easy for people to adore them. Allowing kids to have their own petRead More →
