They’re fluffy and playful, they yip and bark and are just all around adorable, and all they want is to be loved. What could we be talking about? That’s right, puppies! Puppy Day celebrates that most adorable of our four-footed friends, the baby canine, and it’s quite possibly the cutest day ever. It doesn’t matter the breed or gender, all puppies are the perfect solution to a terrible day. They’ll cuddle and crawl and… well, occasionally pee all over everything… but they’re puppies! When Puppy Day comes around, you better be ready for a barking good time, there’s no way to avoid it when the day is about the ultimate ball of heart-melting fluff!
You know what’s magical and fantastic? Oh right, we’ve already been fanboying about it haven’t we? That’s right, don’t care! Puppies! Puppies bring the gift of love without boundaries to us, and they’re absolutely determined to be the best friend you’ve ever had. When you come home from school, that’s all they care about, is that you’re home. Long day at work? Just a big happy ball of fluff coming to see you right at the door, more reliable than the bestest romantic partner. What’s amazing about the love for puppies is that it spreads across the world, through every culture and every social strata. Puppies just bring us all together!
Puppy Day was established to bring awareness to the world about puppy mills and how to go about adopting. Puppy mills are often some of the most horrible establishments, with the females bred until they either can’t conceive, or die giving birth. They’re literally run like a factory, money in, puppies out. Between these heinous establishments and both wild and family dogs remaining unsprayed and unneutered, the population of dogs is getting out of control.
Well the best way to celebrate puppy day is to spend time in the company of these small furry bundles of love. If you have love, space, and desire for puppies in your house then get ye down to a local pound to find yourself a puppy to share your life with!

History

Margaret of Anjou (1430)

Image result for Margaret of Anjou (1430)
Margaret was queen consort of King Henry VI of England and ruled during her husband's frequent bouts of mental illness. With the king insane and childless, Richard, duke of York, was poised to inherit the throne. However, in 1453, Margaret gave birth to a son. The convoluted struggle over who would be king resulted in the War of the Roses, which, by 1471, had left most of those involved dead—except for Margaret.

If You Were Born Today, March 23
Highly intelligent and perceptive, your mind doesn't seem to stop processing and analyzing. Others especially respect your opinions and ideas, which are progressive and unique. You are an effective communicator, although at times a little bossy! You are perhaps better at beginning projects than finishing them, and learning to finish one activity before starting a new one can be quite a challenge. You have little patience for dishonesty and vagueness. Famous people born today: Erich Fromm, Joan Crawford, Ric Ocasek.

But, if you have a pet that needs daily medication, and you don’t want to spend money on store-bought pill pockets, you can make your own with this simple pill-pocket recipe.

3 Types of berries dogs can eat!
naturipefarms

POOCH, PUP OR TAIL-WAGGER; SOME OF THE MANY NAMES USED FOR MAN’S BEST FRIEND. THESE LOYAL ANIMALS HAVE BEEN BY MAN’S SIDE FOR OVER 20,000 YEARS. OVER TIME, DOGS HAVE EVOLVED INTO MANY SHAPES AND SIZES BUT WILL ALWAYS HOLD A PLACE IN THE HEART OF MANY FAMILIES. DOGS ARE IMPORTANT MEMBERS OF A FAMILY, AND THEIR HEALTH IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY SO THAT CAN LIVE A HAPPY AND HEALTHY LIFE.  A DOGS DIET IS RESTRICTED TO NUTRIENT RICH KIBBLE TO MAINTAIN HEALTH BUT OF COURSE THERE ARE THOSE FEW TABLE SCRAPS IN BETWEEN! THIS GOT US THINKING… CAN DOGS BENEFIT FROM BERRIES JUST LIKE HUMANS DO?

CAN DOGS EAT BLUEBERRIES? YES!
berries dogs can eat
Blueberries are one of those “superfoods” we’re constantly told we should have more of in our diets. Unsurprisingly, they’re also good for your dog. All the antioxidants, fiber and phytochemicals blueberries boast provide the same benefits for your dog’s body that they give yours. Try frozen blueberries make for a crunchy treat dogs love.

berries dogs can eatCAN DOGS EAT STRAWBERRIES? YES!
Berries. Is there anything they can’t do? Along with blueberries, strawberries are a nutritional powerhouse for both you and your dog. Like their blue cousins, strawberries are full of antioxidants. They also boast high fiber and a lot of vitamin C. Here’s a bonus: Strawberries even contain an enzyme that can help whiten your dog’s teeth. Keep a bag of frozen strawberries in your freezer to make smoothies for yourself, and you’ll also have a crunchy snack on hand for man’s best friend. Just don’t feed unlimited amounts, because even though the sugar in strawberries is natural sugar, too much can be bad news.

CAN DOGS EAT BLACKBERRIES? YES!
Blackberries round out the holy trinity of healthy berries for your trusty mutt, along with strawberries and blueberries. Like those others, blackberries are loaded with antioxidants to fight free radicals in your dog, and also have plenty of fiber and vitamins, too.
It is worth mentioning that not all berries are good for dogs. Stay away from cherries, holly berries, juniper berries, baneberries, poke berries, and mistletoe berries. These contain pits and/or chemicals that can be health hazards for your dog. And remember to feed your dogs limited quantities because too much can be bad news!
