Eleventh Hour, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Month-1918

Eleventh Hour, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Month President Eisenhower dedicates this time stamp as Veterans Day for United States 8 years after war ends. November 11, 1918 Allied nations and Germany ceased fire and torment due to armistice(truce) that went into affect the eleven hour, eleventh Day and eleventh month in 1918 Versailles France. United States Congress recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution on June 4, 1926, with these words: Quoted from the Department of Veterans Affairs "Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples." Reiterating what Veterans Day truly meant to solidify; Peace Within Nations and People. It meant the marking of War and massive destruction no longer being needed, the marking of nations having recognized that war brings destruction and parting of people, the marking of opposing viewpoints agreeing that the fighting was not creating something of value for humanity, the earth and good will. This day symbolizing that our freedom was fought for by generations past and future with much to lose, much to gain and still somehow trying to implement the lesson we learned almost 100 years ago. Society today has everything to lose and everything to gain from our fore fathers past; take not for granted the millions of flags posted today and everyday and remember those who have fought for this great nation we gather to impact daily. As the original intent, One With Care invites you to Commemorate this day with Thanksgiving and Prayer to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding.

"Dog Day Afternoon"

Friday October the 5th, was My Baby Girl's 7th birthday...We celebrated at the Lazy Dog Cafe!  The Outside patio has pet owners and dogs at every table patiently acting as if they are human, a great happy hour menu and lush greenery in a comfortable family friendly setting.  So many happy pet owners relaxing in the Friday afternoon sun of Orange County.  We had a seat at a lovely corner table, and I promptly set down a dog bed for Ginger Pie as they do not allow the dogs to sit in their chairs.  I brought Ginger some treats for her to snack on and I ordered off the happy hour menu; lettuce wraps and an Asian pear martini (fabulous pairing btw).  Ginger and I sat happily amongst other pet families while we opened gifts and she snacked on organic dog treats from One With Care! "Peanut Butter Paws" & "Bacon Wrapped Bones." The healthiest snacks for dogs!  We took a snap shot of us at the table~it was a great lil celebration for us!!!
I love you Ging~

How to Raise a Well Behaved Pet

I am ONE WITH CARE...I was raised to respect nature, animals and the earth.  I have spent time raising and helping to care for dogs, cats, birds, pigs, chickens and horses.  I was trained to anticipate animals needs and recognized early on in my life how one on one time spent with your pet can ultimately train them to be a well behaved animal.
 
Tender love is the best for a cat or dog, even a bird.  Growing up, my parents owned a Landscaping and Arborist Company.  The sites that required tree trimming or removal would (at times) also require the removal of a birds nest.  Instead of abandonment, or trashing of nests as most companies conducting that type of business do; my parents decided to take them home.  They would nurture the eggs into the hatching of the birds, raising them to eat and fly, and then setting them free after some gentle rearing.  These same birds we would gather as a family and set free would always stay close to home; flying back to the sound of our whistles.
 
As a child growing to a young adult I watched and assisted my parents raise many birds, dogs and cats throughout the years.  They taught me to give direct attention and affection to every animal, every pet and even all the birds.  They showed me you can hold a bird, cat or dog in a way that truly sends your intention to care into them through your touch. I use the methods my parents and family have taught me to care for animals. 
 
True affection, time spent loving your animal will change you and change your pet. They begin to see that you (their owner) can touch every part of their body and it wont hurt them; this is much needed trust. Dogs, Cats, Birds, all animals come to us apprehensive to human touch and behavior. I have first hand experienced the time and patience and consistency it requires to show an animal what is "good" and what is "bad" through positive re-enforcement.
 
Ultimately I believe that pets are just like children, they need to be taught what is good, and raised with unconditional love, so they can provide the same to you in return...
