Everybody loves a puppy, what is there not to love? Apart from when they chewing on your favourite pair of shoes or accidentally urinated on your new rug.
They have bundles of endless energy but have you ever thought about the reason why we restrict their exercise whilst they are growing?
Doing too much too young can be detrimental to their development. In my recent blog I have explained the reason why and given guidance on how much exercise is appropriate for your puppies age.
Orthopaedic conditions in younger dogs is on the rise. Being visual and monitoring your puppy behaviour and activity is vital.
Here are some top tips to keeping your puppy safe whilst exercising. 🐾Avoid long periods of vigorous play. Introducing your puppy to different breeds and sizes is crucial for their social development but limiting rough play can help to avoid injury. 🐾Avoid jumping on and off furniture, in and out of stairs and up and down stairs. 🐾Introduce a harness from a young age. Not only do these minimise the risk of your dog slipping their collar but it also minimises the pressure exerted around their necks whilst learning to walk correctly on a lead. 🐾Avoid slippery surfaces such as tiles and laminate flooring. Small slips and slides can cause soft tissue damage. Placing a runner or rug in popular areas can help minimise this. 🐾Minimise ball and frisbee throwing. Instead of repeating over and over, only throw a couple of times. 🐾Do not take running, jogging or cycling until fully matured.
@Regranned from @baithouseaquarium - Do you feel like your mussels just aren't growing big enough? You might have a parasite. This is the Pea Crab (Pinnotheres novaezelandiae) which lives in bivalves like the Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus). They are parasites because they get all the benefits like a nice home to live in, a good supply of food and the female Pea Crabs dont have any real predation risk as the males will come to them. Sounds like a good life. Well, except for the Mussel which has this Crab living inside it, not paying rent and eating it. This results in the slower growth of the Mussel.
You don't need to worry if you love your mussels, as the Pea Crabs only effect on them is to slow their growth. #peacrab#pea#mussel#parasites#growingup#growing#greenlip#housesquatting#foodsupply#safehome#smallcrab
> I know that many people beat themselves up for failing. I'm very guilty of this myself. However, sometimes we need to think: How is this helping me? How is beating myself up over a mistake that I made supposed to benefit me in any way, shape, or form? The answer is it doesn't. •
> You need to realize that putting yourself down for something is literally only making you feel bad and worthless. That's all it does for you. Now, look back at your failures and say these things instead: •
•I didn't succeed this time, but I'll try again and I'll make it next time. •
•Where did I go wrong? How could this have been fixed? What will I do in the future to help prevent this situation once again? •
•What did I learn from this experience? What lessons has this taught me, and how can I use them to improve my habits in the future? •
•etc etc... •
> Don't deteriorate yourself for failures because it really does no good. It only hurts you more and more. Ask yourself helpful questions and use your experience to better yourself in the future. •
> Lastly, never be afraid of doing something because you're afraid you're going to "fail". Look at it this way: In the future, would you rather say "At least I tried." Or "I wish I tried."? Think about it, and remember that in the end, we are all human. We all make mistakes; and it is completely okay. 💜💙
I used to daydream of a love like this. I used to run away from reality and sink my face into old romance books at the library. Now I live my own love story and write about how it makes me feel while my angel sleeps next to me. The very angel I used to dream about is truly next to me. All the dark times in my life when I said I didn’t want to be alive anymore, I take it back. Please don’t ever take this from me divine creator. I’ll be born again. I’ll come back. Just Let me keep loving him and he loving me the way he does, for many more lifetimes to come and I’ll do whatever you want me to do on this planet. He believes in me. He supports me. He protects me. He pushes me. He holds me. He’s loyal to me. I will forever match his love and want the entire world to know so when they see me, they see him. #myangel#myworld#happy#healthy#grateful#writing#goodmorning#lovelife#reincarnation#mytruelove#myrock#newpath#mermaid#witch#faerie#reikimaster#healing#growing#learning

That middle thought has been hovering over me and convicting me since I read it yesterday in “God Hunger” by @dominicmuir . I had a few incidents this week being hurt/angered/offended by behavior of someone towards me, and it is so hard to not remain offended. But I don’t want to, don’t want to become restrained and stained by bitterness. Jesus, please give me your grace and what I need to have your thoughts, outlook and love. #growing#attitude#ithurts#changeisnotalwayseasy#Jesusfollower
