Tuesday's Show and Tail...



Please come visit Angela's Show and Tail at West Virginia Treasures - join us - all you have to do is blog a little bit about animals - your animal or some other another animal story.

This little video is cute - they dance to the song Grease - just cute.



Look at this poor little guy - ever feel like that? No control of the situation your new - looks like he just gave up and went with the flow - sometimes you have to do that to survive and make things better - fighting this bath would be worse!



And I've talked a lot about self talk and the importance of that. Every time you pass a mirror - Stop - tell yourself that God loves you - you are lovable - and that you love yourself.




"A dog," said Martin Buxbaum, "wags its tail with its heart."

Another health tip:


Pets can reduce blood pressure during times of intense stress and ease loneliness. Studies have shown that 30 minutes per week with a pet, called "animal-assisted therapy (AAT)," can significantly reduce loneliness among residents of long-term health facilities.

~~Love me, love my dog.

Have a sweet Tuesday.

The dog dancing was amazing...

Jeanie said...

I have done plenty of blogging about our dog, Dodger, who always lets us know we are loved, no matter what we do.

BECKY said...

What a great post, Sandie! Love the corgi video....hilarious! And the dancing dog....awww. You know I love dogs and am a firm believer they help people, in so many ways. Have you ever seen a short bit on the TV news about dogs visiting a nursing home? The elderly, lonely people always smile and look alive when they pet the dogs! So sweet!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Cute post. Couldn't agree with you more about positive self-talk. It's VERY important. Take care and have a super good day! Susan

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Oh Sandie you know when I am sick or sad Charlie is right there giving me comfort!

blueviolet said...

He looks so pathetic! I wanted my mom to get a dog so badly after my dad passed to keep her company, but she wouldn't do it. (The mess) Oh well.

Remington said...

Great post! Love the video....

Sandra said...

i sent your post to my daughter in law, they have a corgie just like this one.
i saw the lady and her dog on Pet Star about a year ago, fun video, loved it.
our rehab home has pets come in for the residents, and i agree they do help. ours keeps us healthy

Betsy from Tennessee said...

HI Sandie, Pets can bring so much joy. I had a cocker spaniel for about 15 yrs. I thought I'd die when she died. We do get attached, don't we???
Hugs,
Betsy

Hey Girlfriend!
Thanks for the support. It is amazing how just a phrase or two could mean so much! Hey this post is great! I do believe that I have found a post that you have done that will work to feature you for my blog. This is so exciting!
Cheers,
Shanae

That corgi is so daft!!! Great video though. I agree about taking dogs into nursing homes or residential homes with elderly people. It gives them such pleasure, and it's really lovely to see.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Hee hee. Course I love the canine affirmation tapes!

That corgi :) said...

It always amazes me how people can train their dogs like that lady with her dancing companion! too cute!! I like your thought of us stopping at a mirror and reminding ourselves of God's love for us; I need to do that more often I do think!!

have a great Tuesday!

betty

That corgi :) said...

LOL; I didn't even realize you had the corgi video at the top of your blog until I read it in someone else's comment! too cute!! Koda appreciates it (and so do I :)

betty

Angela said...

Loved the video! I would love for either of my dogs to dance with me! I think it would be fun. I would go to nursing homes and the Veterans home to perform if they would only dance with me!

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!

Sandie, once again you find great videos and hit the nail on the head! Ann

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Sweet Tuesday to you too, Sandie!!

Ginny said...

Nothing beats that corgi video, it is TOO cute!!!! The Grease number is very cool, though!!

Ann said...

I've seen that Grease number before and they are just amazing together. I love it.

SavannahGranny said...

Such a cute post. Often our animals are our best friends. My daughter participated with the AAT program for years with her pug. Thanks for this post. Hugs, Ginger

Mevely317 said...

I just love that Buxbaum quote, Sandie! ... Came at just the right time, too: This afternoon one of my co-workers made an unsolicited comment, "You took a PTO day for a dumb dog?".
Oooooh, I wanted to do something totally "unbecoming"! Mess with me, but not my fur daugher!!!

OK, I'm still trying to wrap my mind around that lady (yesterday's post) who deliberately poured white paint across her mahogany dining room table. Really entertaining excerpt! Alas, I don't think I've a spontaneous bone in my body.

Dogmom Diva said...

Hi Sandie, I am just now 'visiting' from Pink Saturday, I am so bad..we have been working tirelessly around the house with shelving and boxes...love your post. I have problems with self esteem especially since I have gained so much weight..I will try the affirmation that yes God does love me..what a great thought..thank you.

Dogmom Diva said...

Sharon said...

Yes, sometimes I do feel like that poor little guy - all wet!

Practicing the positive self-talk. God does love me (a lot of the time in SPITE of myself! :)

I have heard that about the healing powers of pets. I'll tell you one thing - I've experienced it. When I'm with Marty, I can FEEL myself calmer. And I sleep better with him, even in a recliner, than I do at home. He's just furrier than my hubby!!

xoxo

Howdy Sandie,
I am an animal lover, so I truly love this awesome post.
I enjoy watching the videos with adorable dogs. The cute kitty looks so sweet too.
I know the power of healings with animals is very strong. It helps people in so many different ways, emotionally, physically and so on.
I highly recommend therapy with animals. Thank you for sharing this outstanding post, Sandie!!
The Lord be with you all.
