A cat without a proper litter box will just use the carpet. A dog without a cozy bed will end up on the couch.
Location is important with a litter box. “A cat doesn’t want to travel a long way to go to the bathroom any more than you do,” says Mieshelle Nagelschneider, a feline behaviorist and a consultant at the Cat Behavior Clinic, near Portland, Oregon. Place litter boxes (one per cat, if you own a few, plus one box they can share, says Moore) in quiet areas throughout your home. Plug in a night-light beside each one so your cat can find it in the dark. Cats dislike strong odors (even air freshener), so use uncovered boxes and unscented litter and scoop out each box every day. Dogs are far less persnickety about where they relieve themselves, but do them the favor of regularly picking up the poop in the backyard. Cats and dogs also need spots where they can cuddle up and feel safe. “A dog needs a crate like a teenager needs a room,” says Dodman. Provide a crate or a cozy bed, and make it taboo for your family to pester the dog while he’s in it. Cats naturally want to climb to an optimal vantage point, so set up a place where yours can look out a window.
So choose a proper beds for your pets is very important.

Play with your doggie is very important for them

Doggie is very energy animal, if you bring it back home but never play with it, the doggied may feel lonoly and wither just like a flower, in face, every dog owner want to have a energetic and lively pet, if so, you’d better follow the rules below.
Walk your dog at least twice a day for a minimum of 30 minutes each time,” says Cesar Millan, host of The Dog Whisperer, on the National Geographic Channel. “To your dog, that’s a primal activity―birds fly, fish swim, and dogs walk.” Pamela Reid, vice president of the ASPCA’s Animal-Behavior Center in Urbana, Illinois, recommends that dogs get at least 40 minutes of aerobic exercise daily. “Dogs need more exercise than people do,” says Reid. Try running or biking with your dog or playing fetch or Frisbee. With a cat, “you can’t take her jogging, but before and after work, give her 10 to 20 minutes of playtime,” says Reid.

5 reasons dogs are better than men

1. They are always happy to see you
2. They never complain
3. They eat happily whatever you feed them
4. They don’t rush you to ‘hurry up’ example, when we are applying our make-up & getting dressed.
5. They are soon quick to forgive & just want our unconditional love!!!

Taking Pets on Road Trips

Sometimes we have to take a long trip away from home, but we are concerned about our pets, then we buy them a pet carrier, but do you know how to make our pets feel comfortable in the carrier? Cause the pets may get carsick, too.

  1. Take the pet for a few short rides before your trip so it gets accustomed, if your pets have never been in a car before, even the most comfortable pet carrier would make him feel very upset.
  2. Make some marks on your pets, such as adding your name and address, telephone number on his collar, in case he gets lost.
  3. The best way to keep passengers safe is too keep your pets in the carrier, “Pets that are out of their comfort zones can have behavior problems in the car, which can be dangerous while driving,” says Hammer. So it’s important to remember!
  4. Try not to let your dog ride with his head out of the window. Beyond the danger of getting hit, it is also applied for kids, for they are both vulnerable.
  5. Make regular stops―every two hours for a puppy, every three to four hours for a cat or an adult dog―so your pet can take a walk on a leash (some cats enjoy a little leash walk)
  6. Feed your pet only lightly before getting in the car―pets can become carsick. Once you’ve stopped driving for the day, feed normally.
  7. Plan your pet’s typical feeding and walking schedule into your travel time. If your pet eats at midday, stop and give him a quick walk and a small meal.
All the above tips should be remembered and performed carefully when you carry a pet on road trips, so you can enjoy a happy trip with your kitty or doggie!

The Best Time of Day to Do Just About Anything

For everyday we have 24 hours to spend, that's really a lot of time, but always many people complain that they have no enough time to do something. The only problem is you don't know how to arrange your time scientifically and reasonablly. If you are like me, always feel that time is not enough but I keep busy everyday, take a look at this article(I find on other website, and I want to share with you guys).

 Experts reveal the ideal hours to nap, exercise, ask for a raise, and more.

Take a Nap

1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Doctors used to think afternoon sleepiness was the result of a big lunch. "But we've found that in the early afternoon there's a dip in body temperature, which causes sleepiness," says Michael Smolensky, a professor of environmental physiology at the University of Texas School of Public Health at Houston and author of The Body Clock Guide to Better Health: How to Use Your Body's Natural Clock to Fight Illness and Achieve Maximum Health ($19, amazon.com). Just as a similar decrease encourages you to shut down at bedtime, this midday dip can make you crave a siesta. An ideal nap, he says, should last 15 to 20 minutes. More than 30 and you may end up with sleep inertia―and feel even more groggy when you wake up. Richard Schwab, M.D., codirector of the University of Pennsylvania Penn Sleep Center, in Philadelphia, says that early afternoon is indeed when your circadian rhythms (the pattern of physical and mental changes we each repeat every 24 hours) are "more likely to want your body to sleep." But Schwab insists that if we weren't all sleep-deprived, we wouldn't even need naps.

Read (and Retain) Information

8 a.m. or 10 p.m.

If you're going over notes for today's presentation or memorizing the names of your child's classmates' parents before the school open house tonight, do it early in the morning, when your immediate recall is highest. For longer retention (the book club meets in three weeks, but this weekend's your only chance to finish The Good Nanny), evening is better. "This is just the way the brain is organized," says Smolensky. "Memory depends on nucleic acids, and those show circadian rhythms." In other words, your brain doesn't store information with the same efficiency all day; there are peaks and valleys. "College students often unknowingly take advantage of the dual circadian rhythm by staying up late studying, then doing a quick review the morning of the exam," says Smolensky.

Go to the Doctor

8 a.m. to 9 a.m., or 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

You'll spend less time in the waiting room if you book the first appointment of the morning or the first after lunch, says Patricia Carroll, R.N., author of What Nurses Know and Doctors Don't Have Time to Tell You ($15, amazon.com): "Doctors start fresh in the morning and catch up when the office is 'closed' for lunch." Many lab tests require fasting, so a morning appointment will help you avoid being hungry half the day. If you're seeing a doctor who performs surgery (orthopedist, gynecologist), ask that your appointment not follow her operating time―a recipe for serious delays, says Carroll. Pediatricians' and family-practice offices can get mobbed when work and school let out (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.). And if you leave with a prescription to be filled, try to visit the pharmacy before 3 p.m. on weekdays, when it's least busy―"which also reduces the risk of error," says Carroll.


Pop a Multivitamin

Breakfast time

Taking your supplements with a meal is important because "vitamins are components of food, and whether water soluble or fat soluble, they are absorbed better with food," says Shari Lieberman, Ph.D., a New York City and Hillsboro Beach, Florida, nutrition scientist and coauthor of The Real Vitamin & Mineral Book . "Also, as with many other pills, you're more likely to get queasy if you take multivitamins on an empty stomach. Breakfast is the meal of choice. Because most people have it at home (whereas lunch and dinner are often eaten elsewhere), making the morning meal your time for vitamin-popping will help you stick with the habit. Another reason dinnertime may not be a good option, Lieberman adds, is that certain nutrients, including vitamin B, may keep you

Walk the Dog

8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

To you, walking the dog may be about exercise. To him, it's all about the social life, explains Jean Donaldson, author of Dogs Are From Neptune and director of the San Francisco SPCA's dog-training academy. Owners have more time to stroll in the evening and to let their pets linger over exciting smells and sounds missed on the morning-rush walk. Evening walks also let him avoid midday overheating. He can make himself comfortable before bedtime, says David Reinecke, the founder of Los Angeles-based Dog Remedy behavioral training.


Do Your Cardio Workout

5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

"For increasing fitness, decreasing the chance of injury, and improving sleep, the best time to exercise is late afternoon or early evening," says Matthew Edlund, M.D., author of The Body Clock Advantage: Finding Your Best Time of Day to Succeed In: Love, Work, Play, Exercise and head of the Center for Circadian Medicine, in Sarasota, Florida. At these times, he says, your lungs use oxygen more efficiently, you're more coordinated, and your muscles are warmed up, so you're less likely to suffer a sprain or strain. Finish exercising at least three hours before bed so that when your head hits the pillow the extra adrenaline will no longer be pumping through your bloodstream (and other factors that keep you awake will also have subsided). Bonus: "If you're all wound up at the end of the day, exercise may be a great stress reliever," notes Shirley Archer of the Stanford Health Improvement Program, in Palo Alto, California.

Ask for a Raise

5 p.m.

"The key is finding a moment when your boss is not rushed and has time to truly listen," and that's most likely to be the end of the day, says Lynn Ellis, a career coach in Austin, Texas, who has worked with employees and bosses at global companies like Unilever. "That's when I'm getting ready for the next day or looking ahead to the next week, and I'm in a good mood because I'm going home soon," says Amy Holloway, a vice president at Angelou Economics, in Austin. And you'll have a biological edge then, since, as Edlund, points out, your elevated body temperature makes you more alert in the late afternoon. But asking for a raise is not an exact science. Ellis advises tracking your boss's daily habits to find the ideal, low-key time for him or her. And, in the end, if you're at your best in the morning, just go for it.

Return Merchandise

10 a.m.

Arrive with your what-was-I-thinking sweater within the first hour a store is open. Workforces are leaner these days, but “retailers still need enough staff to open up, so that may be when they have the best ratio of staff to customers,” says Edward Fox, director of Southern Methodist University’s JCPenney Center for Retail Excellence, in Dallas. It may also be the only time all day when staff are at assigned posts, “so you can usually get someone to help,” notes former fashion stylist Linda Arroz, who spent years returning things she didn’t end up using for movies and TV shows. Fox adds that “the most experienced people get the best hours, so they will be working the day shift.” Finally, consider customer flow. “A city store may be busier during weekday lunch hours, a suburban store on weekend afternoons,” says Target spokesperson Lena Michaud.

Go to the Post Office

7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The U.S. Postal Service may have more than 700,000 employees, yet there never seems to be enough of them when you're waiting in line to mail a birthday present. Your best chance, according to USPS spokesperson Monica Suraci: Find out when your post office opens (generally between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.) and arrive a half hour or so later. You'll hit a midmorning lull, missing the rush of early birds lined up at the door (as well as distracted window personnel chatting with carriers sorting the day's mail). Heavy traffic is more likely at lunch, at the end of the workday, and just before closing, so those are times to avoid. Suraci's tip: Look for USPS "contract stations," which offer services in locations like supermarkets and drugstores, and for machines in some post-office lobbies that weigh and stamp packages most any time.

Get a Haircut

8 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Booking the first appointment of the day will help you ease into the shampoo bowl on time. That’s because no latecomers will have thrown off the schedule, says Serena Chreky, co-owner of the Andre Chreky salon, in Washington, D.C. Saturday mornings (after busy workweeks) are usually the least frantic, says Allen Ruiz of the Jackson Ruiz Salon Spa, in Austin. However, some salons fill up then with bridal parties, Chreky cautions, so ask when you book. An early appointment may also get you the best cut. “Stress levels are at their lowest,” says Michelle Breyer, cofounder of NaturallyCurly.com, which deals with salons nationwide. “Even if you’re only the third or fourth client of the day, your stylist may not look at your hair with the same enthusiasm.” For the best service, Breyer and Ruiz both suggest asking your stylist, “What’s your favorite time of day to do hair?”

Clean the House

4 p.m.

You're more likely to whistle while you window wash (and not kick over the bucket) if you do it in the late afternoon. That's when hand-eye coordination is at its peak and mood levels are high, says Smolensky. If anyone in the house has allergies or asthma, avoid insomnia-hour and morning cleaning sprees (nasal-allergy symptoms are most severe between 6 a.m. and noon, asthma attacks more likely between midnight and 6 a.m.), and finish well before that person walks in the door. "It takes about an hour for allergens and dust to settle after you clean," says Martha White, M.D., director of research at the Institute for Asthma and Allergy, in Wheaton, Maryland.

The true story of Hachi

Hachikō is one of the most revered Akitas of all time. He was born in 1923 and owned by Professor Hidesaburō Ueno of Tokyo Professor Ueno lived near the Shibuya Train Station in a suburb of the city and commuted to work every day on the train. Hachikō accompanied his master to and from the station each day On May 25, 1925, when the dog was 18 months old, he waited for his master’s arrival on the four o’clock train. But he waited in vain; Professor Ueno had suffered a fatal stroke at work. Hachikō continued to wait for his master’s return. He traveled to and from the station each day for the next nine years. He allowed the professor’s relatives to care for him, but he never gave up the vigil at the station for his master. His vigil became world renowned when, in 1934 shortly before his death, a bronze statue was erected at the Shibuya train station in his honor This statue was melted down for munitions during the war and new one commissioned once the war ended Each year on April 8 since 1936, Hachikō’s devotion has been honored with a solemn ceremony of remembrance at Tokyo’s Shibuya railroad station. Eventually, Hachikō’s legendary faithfulness became a national symbol of loyalty, particularly to the person and institution of the Emperor.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.

An introduction about Hachi—–Akita (dog)

Akita are probably best known worldwide from the true story of Hachi, a loyal Akita dog who lived in Japan before the second world war
The Akita is a large spitz breed of dog originating from the mountainous northern regions of Japan. There are now two separate strains: Japanese, a/k/a “Akita Inu” or “Japanese Akita”, and American, a/k/a “Akita” or “American Akita”. The Japanese strain comes in selected colors only, with all other colors considered atypical of the breed, while the American strain comes in all dog colors. The Akita has a short double coat, similar to that of many other northern Spitz breeds, e.g., siberian husky, but long coated dogs can be found in many litters due to a recessive gene. The American strain of Akita is now considered a separate breed from the Japanese Akita in many countries around the world, with the notable exceptions of Australia, the United States and Canada. In the U.S. and Canada, both strains are considered a single breed with differences in type rather than two separate breeds. During a short period, the American strain of Akita was known in some countries as the “Great Japanese Dog”. Both forms of Akita are probably best known worldwide from the true story of Hachi, a loyal Akita dog who lived in Japan before the second world war. The Akita is a strong, independent and dominant breed, commonly aloof with strangers but affectionate with family members. They are known to compete in many dog competition sports, yet some are known to be intolerant of other dogs and require a knowledgeable and firm handler As a breed, Akitas are generally hardy, but they have been known to suffer from various genetic conditions and be sensitive to certain drugs.

How to choose a toy for Labrador

Labradors love to chew on anything they can get their mouths on out of their inherent nature.Their gums are tender, and when they chew on something, it soothes their gums. It may be a game for teething pups, but for you, it may prove to be rather annoying to choose right toys for them. There are so many toys in the market for dogs, but before buying one for your Labrador, please bear in mind that the toys must be non-toxical, not easy to break up or choke up, and won’t hurt your doggie.

Chewy drumsticks are available in plastic and rawhide. Your Labrador will love to chew on and bury them for their sincere love to chicken. This burying and digging game will be your dog’s favorite pastime.

A little ball will be a good toy for your doggie to play with on the lane. It is specially designed for outdoor activities, and your doggie will have a good time and a better agility through playing balls.

These rope toys will spur your Labrador to compete with you. This is a good interactive game between master and dog. Such outdoor toys won’t hurt anyone, they are made of soft Polyester.
A good toy can help Labrador to keep occupied, happy and healthy.


Superman suir for Labrador

The most suitable pet doggie for Pisces to own is Labrador, which is a clever, outright and tame doggie, Labrador is not aggressive but has many functions, just like a gentleman among doggs, what’s more, Labrador is adept at playing water, all of these correspond to the character of Pisces.
And Pisces are always sensitive to both feeling and appearance, they can dress up their Labrador with beautiful skirts(Labrador don’t need coat in winter for they have enough warm fur), such as the superman suit below.

Early in 19th, Labrador was shipped to England from its original place—Newfoundland, Canada, and it was also the first dog breed to be introduced to Europe, nowadays,the Labrador retriever is already the world’s most popular dog breed and in the United States has bested the AKC rankings for that very category for the past eighteen years running.
In Newfoundland, Canada, the Labrador Retriever dog’s role was in aiding fishermen by retrieving their catch and nets; services that involved a fair amount of swimming. But because of the unaffordable dog taxes, mandy canandian fishermen gave up their dogs and Labrador was somehow banished from its country. While because of its good quality in surviving, after a long time of propagating, today’s labrador is formed.
Labrador firstly emerged in Poole in England, and its function in this area was a little different compared with in Canada, The dog breed already had excellent qualities sought after in a gun dog by hunters, notable its so-called “soft mouth” (the ability to retrieve shot game without damaging it) and as an exceptionally swimmer, the Labrador Retriever made the ideal dog to retrieve game birds that resided along or on water such as geese and ducks.
Labrador is a very suitable family member, cause it is extremely kind to children, besides, it is tame and has many functions.


How to choose the right collar for your Labrador doggie

Many of dogg owners like walking their dogs in the dark. They always walk doggie down the same unlit country roads and letting it run free across the fields regardless of how dark it is. A high visibility, reflective collar is a must!
In last post, I’ve introduced something about Labrador(their original place, functions, characters and so on), and I realized that many Labrador owner found it hard to choose a suitable collar for their doggies.
As we know, Labrador is fond of playing in water, at this time, we need a collar with the function of waterproof, or the bacteria occured on the collar would make your doggie very uncomfortable.

Light source: LED and Ultra bright optical fiber
And in everyday use, you can choose a nylon webbing flashing collar for Labrador

led dog collar Ultra bright and eye-catching,Durable, and you can adjust the length freely according to your pet’s neck size.
So, choosing the right collar is very important for Labrador, if you are a true dog lover, I believe that you can never tolerate a uncomfortable collar on your doggie’s neck!
