Why i change food for winter

With the cold weather coming soon. I start looking at new foods. Foods that are high in fat and oils. This is for both me and my dogs. 

We have seen that most dogs that live in very cold conditions have a very fatty and oily diet, this is because oils and fats hep keep the coat and skin well hydrated and insulated. It also stimulates new hair growth and a thicker coat for the winter will help your dogs more then you may think. 

In the summer i feed a very large poultry diet and maybe some Dutch and lamb every now and then. Withthe winter coming i slowly increase the land and add fish to their diet. Salmon is a great prep for the winter and offers the dogs great support for the winter. 

 It is also very important to look after he joints as the temperature decreases, especially in older dogs or your working breeds.

Go to your food specialist and ask them what to do for your breed and how to look after them for the winter.

We have been struggling lately, we bought a camper about 10 months ago and it has been impossible to have it registered here in Italy, it has drained our money and has stopped us from travelling, I am hoping we manage to fix the problems and push on but it is not easy. 

We did manage to get to Croatia for a few days. It wasn’t really a holiday as we were there for training but the dogs had Fun so I guess it counts. Well here are some pics

Why do you wake?

I live to be alive. The ultimate feeling of life is to feast, to drink, to have relationships, to discover both the external and internal worlds. I live so I can love. I hurt so I can love again. I wake up so I can fill my day and once my body is tired I rest my head to prepare for the next. 
I wake because I was given a gift. I wake because I have the possibility to wake. 

I wake because I believe there will come a day where life will be peace, where all heartbeats will be free, where the world will live on love.

Importance of travel. 

So we all know the saying “travel makes you wise.”

Well why is this? 

I feel it is for a few reasons. The first is that it exposes you to many different cultures and many different traditions and mindsets. This is great for the main reason, you can select what you like and work to avoid what you don’t like. You colour in your likes and dislikes. 

For instance i love Germany for its care and interest in its people, they look after their people. I don’t like it as the people don’t interact with each other easily, they are scared and cold. I love italy as they are passionate and full of life, But the government and the church is killing the people and the earth that they live on.  Now before i experienced either, i loved italy and hated germany. Now i have a colourful reasoning to it. 

The second is your knowledge grows hugely. You meet people that know all sorts of strange things. Travel makes you interested and in return makes you interesting. I have learnt secrets of Sheppards and the ways of the mountains. I also learnt a lot about who i am and who i wish to be.

The third and final thing i will talk about is the confidence it gives you. There is no possibility to fear life when you travel. You need to work through all situations no matter how great your fear is. 

I will add that to do this all alone is key to the effectiveness but any travel is good travel. 

I recently wrote that without travel there is no purpose in life. I will stand by this till someone can give me a better reason.
