Dogs, Cats, People & Time
Hope this rainy day in Santa Cruz, finds all happy, rested and relaxed. My last celebration of my birthday was today, with a new hairdo (before and after picture coming soon) at Oasis, the one and only green salon. Wendy Rae Johnson coaxed all the natural curl to come on out and display itself. My head feels light and happy! I can hardly wait for next month’s adventure with Erin and my skin analysis education.
This new hair style helps me to feel very connected to my father’s spirit, because he was called Curly. My brother, Joel, certainly has some resemblance to our dad and is now recovering very well, from his previous surgery, hooray! I spent some quality time managing money today and am very pleased with the information learned from the Dani Johnson first steps to Success workshop in Atlanta, Georgia last weekend. Go to her site and sign up for the next workshop in Los Angeles at the end of January 2011 or go to danijohnson.com/video.
Did you know that cats are considered to be senior at 11 years of age and dogs become senior at 7 to 10 years of age? Dogs and cats age five to seven times faster than people do, so health-related changes can occur quickly. Because pets can be very good at hiding signs of illness, they may seem to become suddenly ill when they can no longer hide their symptoms.
The good news is that you can greatly improve your senior pet’s quality of life and longevity by watching for signs of age-related health problems and bringing your pet in for regular senior wellness exams. The following five age-related problems are good reasons that your senior pet needs regular wellness exams:
Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day.
Rich people can’t buy more time. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend on another day.
Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
Success depends upon using it wisely — by planning and setting priorities. Time is worth more than money, and by killing time, we are killing our own chances of success.
