There are No Bad Dogs – Only Bad Owners

Pet dogs are becoming a problem in our village. They loiter around, potty everywhere and very noisy most of the time. Plans to contain them are already in place but stubborn dog owners are blocking the progress. They question the policies, do not show up during meetings and worst – they do not respect the privacy of others especially their neighbors. This explains why their dogs are unruly – because they are stubborn themselves:

Dealing with the Dominant Dog

By: Ed Frawley

This article is being written for dog owners who believe that have a problem with aggression or poor behavior with their family dog.

We get a lot of emails from people who believe they have dominant dogs. The fact is very few dogs are truly dominant. We feel the vast majority of the people who email us don’t have dominant dogs but rather they have dogs that have never learned rules.  http://leerburg.com/dominac2.htm



There are actually no bad dogs if trained properly. Dog lovers who cannot take care of pet dogs should not take the responsibility of caring for them. It’s their neighbors that would suffer from their doings – because they are hardly around. Dogs must be nurtured and if you don’t have the time, please don’t own one!

Violence Amidst Hunger


welcome

English: Tropical Storm Haiyan on October 5, 2007.

I was in a state of shock hearing the news from a taxi driver that Tacloban was devastated with lots of dead bodies in the streets because of super typhoon, Yolanda. I immediately called my contact in Cebu and she confirmed. The estimate casualties at that time was only 100 – and I thought that the count was too low for the reported violence happening there. One thing, we did not organize a personal visit mission because even people bringing relief goods are being attacked – until at this very time of writing. I did not know what to say when my sister called me inquiring where she will send her donations. Read this devastating story:

 

Typhoon Haiyan: Thousands feared dead in Philippines

By: http://www.bbc.co.uk

Around 10,000 people may have died in just one area of the Philippines hit by Typhoon Haiyan, according to officials.One of the worst storms on record, it destroyed homes, schools and an airport in the eastern city of Tacloban.Neighbouring Samar island was also badly affected, with reports of 300 people dead and 2,000 missing. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24887337



I remember the science fiction stories that I heard from teenagers at home – that soon, the earth will be filled with zombies. The Tacloban tragedy proved to show that when people are hungry and desperate, these unbelievable stories can happen. May God bless the people of Leyte!

Shoplifters, robbers and thieves have some kind of psychological problems on top of being so desperate with money. It is surprising to know that stealing can be prevented with some psychology tactics. The good thing is, the tips discussed here are for everybody. Read this:

How to prevent stealing

By:  M.Farouk RadwanMSc.

Psychology can help you deal with many of the life situations you face in a better way. Psychology can help you in preventing your stuff from being stolen and can make it less likely for you to get robbed.

After all the person who steals your stuff is just a human being who has feelings, emotions and certain weaknesses. http://www.2knowmyself.com/How_to_prevent_stealing


Many people rich or poor can sometimes go through financial trying times and can easily be provoked by the hardship in life to steal. You too can stop this circumstance and prevent yourself from being a victim. Like in your own household, be there to extend help to your helpers, workers or anybody who works for you. Let them know from the start that you are willing as much as you can to help – if only they let you know. This is a noble thing to do for as long as they don’t abuse it. Take care of your people and they will take care of you!

Outdoor with Indoor Party Option

Knowing that November is a rainy month, I was already speculating a combination of indoor and outdoor party for our upcoming Princess Party for my grand daughter’s birthday. Little do I know that a strong typhoon might threaten the said party. Glad to read this article for some more ideas and precautionary measures:

Rainy Day Solutions for Outdoor Parties

By: 

The lawn is freshly mown, the deck is draped with balloons and thefolding tables are perfectly arranged when, suddenly, the clouds come rolling in, threatening to wash out your party before it ever begins. Anyone who has ever planned an outdoor event knows the dread of such a scene. It doesn’t matter if you micro-manage every little detail, the one thing you can’t control is the weather.  http://kidsparties.about.com/od/partyplanningessentials/a/Rainy-Day-Solutions-For-Outdoor-Parties.htm



However, since we started preparing since a month ago, the only problem I saw is the fighting spirit of the invited guests – to still make it to the party or not. So, I gathered at least 15 kids in the neighborhood and got confirmations from their parents to attend despite the typhoon. Good thing, they are only steps away from the house. Never get discouraged with bad weather. The important thing is to be able to gather people who care and make the birthday girl happy!
