Every week, I make an honest effort to shine some light into the darkness of the world. People are literally addicted to bad things. Yes, that means tuning into the news every evening without fail. We are filling our minds with mass shootings, conflict with other countries, and national leaders who are involved in scandalous affairs. How can any of this make us feel good? It can’t – all it does is fill us with fear, with judgement and with division. Nobody wants that negative energy.

Trista is only 1 year old and would make a great companion.  For more information click HERE.

It’s draining and depressing. Get outside. Go learn something new. Pick up a new hobby – hiking, yoga, horseback riding, throwing hatchets – something productive, interesting and energizing. Turn off the tv and tap into something that can actually benefit your life. At the end of the day, it really does not matter what the president in a foreign country is doing. This is Canada. Sure, it’s entertaining, but it serves no benefit to us.

Fred, below,  has a special $150 adoption fee and is a Hound Mix that is exceptionally intelligent.  He is 5 years old and as you can see would really like to come home with someone so please click this link if you would like to find out more!
Eating food that is terrible for our bodies is not a good thing. We know this, and continue to wait in line at McDonalds. How many times do we hear about illness in the body, and are prescribed medication? 9 times out of 10? 10 times out of 10? It’s a growing problem. Processed sugars and refined carbohydrates are bad for us. We know this. It’s like smoking – we know it’s likely going to give us cancer, and yet people smoke anyways. Eating garbage food is no different. If we want to live differently, we have to make changes. Nobody wants to feel pain or get sick – so change what you are putting in your body. It’s simple.

As Joe Rogan said, “one thing that happens when you have discipline is that you actually get things done. You have more success.” The disciplined life is simple, but not easy. You eat right, drink water, eat clean (whole foods, veggies, meats, things your body is meant to process), get enough sleep, move around and sweat a little bit – it’s not going to kill you! Go get a dog at the shelter and take him for a walk. Enjoy the fresh air, the sun and the green grass around you. Bring some water with you – swap it out for that Diet Coke – really, it’s not healthier for you than that regular Coke. It’s nothing but sugar water. It’s rotting your insides! Attractive, right?

The hardest step you take is the first one – it’s the longest stride. So often, we are so afraid to take that first step. It’s scary. It’s uncomfortable. But it’s necessary for change. Change takes time. Losing 40 pounds doesn’t happen overnight. It takes discipline and consistency to reach that goal. It takes hard work. It’s simple, but not easy.

To facilitate change is to create a life of discipline and consistency. Sitting down and doing the work isn’t always fun, it doesn’t have instant rewards, but in the long run, you lead a healthier, more productive life. You have pride when you reach your dreams and things start falling together. It certainly beats having a dead-end marriage. It certainly beats hating how you look in the mirror because you couldn’t say no to the doughnuts in the office. It certainly beats being a boring, lifeless person. Stand out. Achieve greatness. Be the hero of your life!

Dumbo (below) loves squeaky toys and knows how to sit and shake a paw. He would like a home with no young kids. He loves to explore and can’t wait to meet you! Vanessa spent some time with Dumbo and shares this: Dumbo is a great dog for sure!


Dumbo LOVES to run and would like a fenced in space to run as much as he desires. He has plenty of energy and is very outgoing.  Why not come and meet him today?
