Your Healthy Dog, Pt.1
Your Healthy Dog, Pt.1
This is Episode #47, Repost from 2019, Season 1.  This is a 5-part series from a Lunch 'n' Learn I did back in 2014 to a crowd that was definitely interested in learning how to care for their dogs proactively, naturally according to their species needs - evergreen material. So join me as I added to this and broke it down a bit more for a 5-part series into natural dog health and wellness. This is Part 1.  Books mentioned are found on my Shop page here: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/shop/ QUOTES “The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitudes of their minds.” ~Albert Schweitzer – this can determine health or dis-ease in us and our pets "There are no incurable diseases. If you are willing to take responsibility for yourself and your life you can heal yourself of anything. Your body has the ability to heal itself completely of any disease." ~Richard Schulze "The doctor has been taught to be interested not in health but in disease. What the public is taught is that health is the cure for disease.” - Ashley Montagu “Give people a fact or an idea and you can enlighten their minds; tell them a story and you touch their souls.” —Hasidic Proverb The photo is of my former Golden Retriever, Fridge

Healing in Mischief
Healing in Mischief
Repost, Episode 86, Season 2, September 23, 2019. This time I get to share my wonderful friend, Kathy Lacey with you and her journey into caring for her own animals naturally.  We talk about how we met, how she learned to help ALL her animals, and the steps it took for her to get to where she is now. I hope this encourages those of you who think it's easy for practitioners since this is what we do as a profession, but hard for the everyday pet owner to do this - Kathy lays that to rest to prove it's possible! You can find Kathy on Instagram @kathylacey.333 and also on FB under her name.  Here are some links to what we mention during this episode that I promised I'd share: 1. Eye drops  2. Colloidal Silver generator 3. Kathy's Ditch 'N' Switch class (free - from 4 years ago but it's evergreen info) 4. Essential Oils Wishlist page on my website

Why Can't We All Just Get Along?
Why Can't We All Just Get Along?
Episode 76, Repost from July 20, 2019, Season 2. This episode was done in my hotel room at the Young Living Convention in UT with two great friends (Wendy Lovas & Breanne Altherr) who also happen to be graduates of the school in animal naturopathy my colleague Dr. Jeannie and I founded and ran for 8 years. This episode is all about us learning to grow together and even while we may have varying opinions and even beliefs, we are able to be good friends and actually have a discussion on how to move forward with the best care for our animals. I hope you enjoy listening in to our late night conversation sitting on my bed lol, discussing some of our favorite topics: animals, natural health, and oils! Find Wendy on Instagram @solansspirit and on FB as herself. Breanne you can find on her website (she doesn't pay much attention to IG but she is under her name on FB).

Why Do Our Dogs STILL Get Sick?
Why Do Our Dogs STILL Get Sick?
Repost from 2019, Episode #69, Season 2. This time I talk about the things that could be further causing our dogs to still "get" sick, even when we're doing all the right things with them: carnivore nutrition, reducing the toxins, etc.  Resources I mention: 1. Link to my primary resource for removing toxins and replacing with better choices 2. Video on Epigenetics 3. My article on Microchipping Our Pets 4. DNA Class by Dr. Doug Corrigan

Nothing New Under the Sun
Nothing New Under the Sun
Repost from March 2019, Season 2, Episode #60. This is another episode featuring my good friend, retired veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham, the author of Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It. In this episode Dr. Bassham shares two stories pertaining to our health and that of our animals that are set 100 years apart. The common thread between the two centers around toxins masquerading as beneficial - BOTH added to our food. That folks is not by accident either.  Quote: "Pioneers are buried in unmarked graves." ~Paul Harvey Another book we mention in this episode besides Dr. Bassham's is by retired neurosurgeon, Dr. Russell Blaylock, titled, "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills". Two videos to make our point: You are Being Brainwashed and The Chemical Industry

The Bigger the Lie
The Bigger the Lie
Repost from March 2019, Episode #59, Season 2. It's interesting that I recorded this a full year before all hell literally broke loose on this planet. I already knew what was coming because I had a great veterinarian friend share his immense wisdom with me years before in 2009. He didn't live to see this, but I'm glad he prepared me...God just took it SO much deeper, wider, and higher as only He can do.  Quotes & a couple of the resources mentioned - the rest remain unnamed due to the times we are living in: 1. Video with Dan Mohler HCSKL 2010 Week 10 Session 38 https://youtu.be/M-RpFz6pL5w on our immune system (faith-based) 2. Blog post I mention https://lindseyelmore.com/hear-me-now-one-pharmacists-opinion-on-vaccines/ “If you don’t think faith in God has anything to do with healing the body, you better rethink what you believe in!” ~Gary Young "It is your responsibility to be responsible for yourself. It is your God-given right to search, read, study, and decide how you will feed and take care of your own body. Be independent and be wise." ~Kayla Howard "To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead". ~Thomas Paine "True ignorance is not the absence of knowledge, but the refusal to acquire it". ~Karl Popper W. Clement Stone said, "Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance."

Treat Disease or Promote Health?
Treat Disease or Promote Health?
Repost from Season 2, 2019, Episode #68  - originally recorded in 2017. This was recorded with my former co-host, colleague, business partner and BFF, Dr. Jeannie Thomason on our former podcast. This ties in to the last few episodes, especially since they were all originally released in 2019.  Side note - the reason I'm reposting from Seasons 1-2 is that none of those episodes transferred when I moved hosting. Those were pivotal in helping listeners learn what is natural, whole health aka naturopathy. In this episode, we go into the differences between practitioners.  A practitioner we mention is Dr. Mercedes Colburn, who is a personal friend of ours. She mapped the equine, canine and feline eyes for iridology.

Pesticides & Herbicides
Pesticides & Herbicides
Repost from Season 2, 2019, Episode #66. This time I go into a lot of the reasons why using these type of products really just isn't wise. In the long run, they cause so much damage to us, our animals and the planet in general. What you may not know, but after these last two years our eyes really ought to be opened by now - this has ALL (and I mean ALL) been by design and planned. Call me a conspiracy theorist and I'll tell you that the difference between a conspiracy theory and conspiracy TRUTH is about 6 months.  Here are some links to help you in your journey of learning the truth: 1. https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2018/04/creepy-crawly-spring/ 2. https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2016/05/toxins-that-hinder-health/ - the article I mention by Mike Donkers is linked in this post 3. https://www.starfishscents.com/listing/675689142/protecting-your-dna-essential-oils-and

Naturopathy is a Lifestyle - NOT a Method!
Repost from Season 1, 2018, Episode #18. This was another of the last episodes I did with my former colleague, business partner, co-host and BFF. We loved talking about this subject together - even though I always did most of the talking on the podcast, she inspired me just with her presence. This is a more passionate episode as a result and it has encouraged me to move forward with what she and started so many years ago together. Even though she's no longer on this earth, she is definitely cheering me on from heaven and I'm fully partnered with God now so it's an exciting time - we shall see where this all leads. I hope you gain value and enjoy this episode.  Blog post: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2017/04/lifestyle-not-method/ Book discussed: https://www.amazon.com/Nature-Doctors-Pioneers-Naturopathic-Medicine/dp/0962351857 Article discussed: https://naturalnews.com/022783_herb_health_surgeons.html

Broken Dogs
Repost from 2018, Episode #41. This is a short but intense episode as my heart was breaking into pieces knowing that our Carolina Dog girl, Schatzie was making that trek we all must take one day. I titled this "broken dogs" but in reality they were whole in ways we aspire to! Here are some links on the dogs I mention: Fridge https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2015/10/a-tale-of-three-dogs-part-one/ Shadrach https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/blog/in-honor/in-memory-of-shadrach-the-neo-mastiff/ https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2015/10/a-tale-of-three-dogs-part-two/ Meshach https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/blog/in-honor/in-memory-of-meshach-2/ https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2015/11/a-tale-of-three-dogs-part-three-conclusion/ Schatzie https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2013/06/lost-but-now-found/ - this is also available here as episode #48 https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/blog/in-honor/in-memory-of-schatzie/

Barking, Howling, Quail Call Zoomies!
Barking, Howling, Quail Call Zoomies!
Repost, August 22, 2018 (actually originally recorded in 2016), Episode #7. This is a short and funny espisode about our American Bully King who is now 10 1/2 years old! So he isn't so into zoomies anymore but once in a while he gets going and it's still very funny. He also still plays the howling game I share in this episode. Plus, does this funny bark that I taught him to do by repeating it every time my husband comes home from somewhere. He sounds very much like he's saying, "Where were you?" I have video proof lol.  Once a friend was here cutting my hair and brought her daughter to visit. They didn't believe King could speak English hahaha. We had him in the bedroom with a gate up so my husband could take them to meet 'n' greet him. He asked clearly if he could come out and my husband Donnie said the faces of my friend and her daughter showed their astonishment LOL. Donnie told King he couldn't come out and he then replied, "How come?" And that's when the two REALLY lost it hahaha! King's quite the character - funny, kind, lovable, strong, brave and also very considerate not to mention so dang smart! We're blessed to have him grace our home!

In the Absence of Food
In the Absence of Food
Repost from 2018, Episode #27. This completes this latest series on food but that doesn't mean I won't have any more to add to this haha! This time we focus on one of the laws of health that is most often either overlooked or ignored: REST. Rest as in good sleep yes, quiet, no EMF interrupting devices, lights, etc. However, it also means rest from food. Allowing the digestion to rest so the body can heal and restore itself.  Blog posts https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2021/02/rest-is-courage/ https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2020/10/rest-a-law-of-health/ https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2019/04/resting-and-fasting/

History of Pets in America
History of Pets in America
Repost from Season 1, 2018, Episode #13. This episode is actually from 2008 on my former podcast, Animal Talk Naturally, with my colleague/co-host/business partner/BFF, Dr. Jeannie Thomason. Our guest was Kathryn Grier who is the author of The History of Pets in America and was a museum curator at the time.  This was such a fun and enlightening interview and very educational as well. Things I never knew - our pets haven't always been the same pets they are now which in the majority are cats and dogs. Cats and dogs were very much working class animals. Cats were used to keep mice and others in check, dogs were used for herding, guarding, hunting, etc.  Kathryn shares so much of her research in this episode plus at the time she was researching kibble and how it all came to be. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did! I mentioned this episode on last week's episode plus three other episodes that will be coming up in the next 3 weeks.

Experimentation Under a Veiled Guise
Experimentation Under a Veiled Guise
Repost, Episode #40, December 2018. This episode may upset people, but truth often does. You see, this was recorded BEFORE all that has gone down the last two years, but it sure is timely for now. It's something I've taught along with my colleague/former co-host & business partner, who sadly passed away in March, since 2004. Yet, somehow we've arrived at this time in history where nothing is as it appears.  There is an old quote that goes something like this: "The truth is still the truth even if no one believes it; a lie is still a lie even if everyone believes it."  Blog post: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2018/12/experimentation-or-healthcare/

For their health and well-being. This episode is all about that exact thing! Blog post: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2018/10/animals-can-self-medicate/ It's time for these reposts since I'm being asked again about the very things I address in these (the last few, this one and the upcoming ones).

Lost but Now Found
Lost but Now Found
This is a repost from Season 1, Episode #48, 2019. This is the story of how both my American Bully King, and my first Carolina Dog, Schatzie came to live with us and how I nearly lost BOTH of them on the same day! Additionally we were waiting on a new Great Dane puppy we were going to name Ezra due to the loss of our former Great Dane Meshach. This was back in 2013. Interestingly enough we eventually DID get an Ezra in 2019, but he came in the form of a very wild and cantankerous Carolina Dog puppy rather than a Great Dane. This story is one of redemption, forgiveness, and fresh starts! "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." ~Romans 8:28, NKJV Blog post: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2013/06/lost-but-now-found/ Schatzie's Memorial Page Meshach's Memorial Page Shadrach's Memorial Page

Badittude or Bubbatude
This is a repost from Season 1, Episode #26, originally recorded in 2016 on another podcast I had. This is all about how my amazing American Bully dog, King, helped me go from a bad attitude to a positively Bubby one (that's his nickname lol). I also share the MANY essential oil blends I used to actually help ME since it was because of King I was able to see where I needed some adjustments.  Sidenote: I know that it's far better to receive the whole new creation I have in Christ than try to fix my old nature, but this episode is part of my journey and I hope it helps you as it did me. Blog post for this episode: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2015/05/bubba-tude/ Oils I mentioned are all blends by Young Living: Valor, Gratitude, Motivation, Grounding, Gathering, Peace & Calming, Surrender, Harmony and Transformation https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/essential-oils

The Business of Sickness
Repost. This is Episode #14, Season 1, recorded September 20, 2018. In this episode my good friend, retired veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham (author of Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It) and I discuss healthcare as what it has become: the business of sickness rather than health. We share from our years (Dr. Bassham has close to 60 years in this profession) of being in healthcare, how we ended up in this place and what is the solution.

It Didn't Work?
This is Episode #20, actually recorded in February 2017 on my former podcast with my colleague, Jeannie Thomason but shared on this podcast in Season 1. In this episode we share what we've experienced from clients in trying a whole health, natural approach for their dogs short term expecting the same response we get from a drug. It's not possible and not how health works. I share an environmental story to correlate it to what happens in the body. I hope this helps anyone desiring to go the natural, whole health route with your own dog but are afraid to or have thought "it didn't work".

This is Episode 11, Season 1 from 2018. In this episode, we spoke with our good friend, veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham about the rise in veterinary suicides. We discussed this as both practitioners and pet owners and our roles for both.  Short video mentioned: You Are Being Brainwashed While I no longer have the original article there are quite a lot of articles available now on this subject of "veterinary suicides" - just do an internet search for it and sadly you'll see it's all too common.

This is episode 10, Season 1 repost from 2018 as that year is no longer available here. This is Part 3 of 3 in this series. The focus/thinking this time is on health rather than disease.

The Dog in Front of You
The Dog in Front of You
This is episode 9, Season 1 - repost from 2018 as that year is no longer available here.  This is Part 2 of this 3 part series. This time I go into what I believe to be nonsense about the species needs of dogs - the thing is, each dog IS unique and does have unique needs or quirks as does each being on this planet. However, that said, dogs are still carnivores no matter what and we can't decide to make them be whatever we want just because we want that. In fact that seems to be a big issue in society today - basing our beliefs upon what we WANT them to be rather than on TRUTH. Part 1 is The Correct Nutrition. Part 3 is Focus on Health. If this hits a nerve, then good because that's what it took for me as well.

Dream Horses
This is a repost from 2020, Episode #110. Since I was a little girl I have dreamed of horses - not just of having them but literally dreamed about them. Sometimes I'd close my eyes when I went to bed and imagine myself on a horse and then I'd dream about that horse. So these two dreams I am sharing in this episode were so impactful - I hope you gain something from this too, especially if you are a horse lover. The true message though is about more than horses which will segue into a new episode next week! Be blessed!

Farewell to Dr. Jeannie Thomason
This is episode 174. My long time friend, colleague, former business partner, former podcast co-host and pioneer in animal naturopathy and natural rearing, Dr. Jeannie Thomason, passed away March 9, 2022. This is my tribute to her. It brought me out of hibernation with a desire to go forward to continue her legacy. I shared snippets on various topics she was passionate about from some of our earliest episodes in 2006, with at least one in our later years. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did putting it together. I cried a lot and laughed too. It brought back so much for me and inspired me to finally get back in the game and continue on.  I'll always love and miss you Jeannie girl until we meet again my sister friend.  Blog post: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2022/03/she-left-a-legacy-of-inspiration/

Free Wellness, Naturally!
Free Wellness, Naturally!
This is a bonus add-back-in from 2019 that I'd removed to use elsewhere. It is episode 61 from Season 1.  "The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up". ~John C. Maxwell In this audio I share various ways we can improve our health through our attitude choices, and things as simple as a hug, a smile, laughter, dancing, singing and more! Couple that with essential oils and WOW!   These are so simple some are going to think this is insane...but remember it is nature's way. Simplicity, not complicity. Not complicated. Simple. And for the science buffs, these are all proven scientifically. I have found that essential oils play a critical role in supporting us in releasing the trapped emotions within our bodies allowing for vibrational wellness to return. That is because essential oils get to the root of of removing locked emotions. Emotions dictate to us what we can or can't accomplish as I have learned through Dr. Allen's teachings. As I use the essential oils to support my emotional release, I do so prayerfully and with focused intention. I am amazed at all that has been able to transpire in my own life as a result. Lots of baggage being released; besides I prefer to travel light. VIDEO: How Does Emotion Change Our Bodies? QUOTES Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you. ~Les Brown The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed. ~Bennett Cerf Being able to give someone a hug from the heart, it's healing.

Essential Oils for Calming
Essential Oils for Calming
Bonus episode 4. Calming for dogs and their people. Especially now during this time of year when people seem to get more stressed out rather than more cheerful. It's "JOY to the world" folks. It's "have yourself a MERRY little Christmas". It's "silent night, HOLY night, ALL is CALM." So let's do that!! Hopefully this message will help you to do exactly that. When we're calm, our dogs will be calm too.  To learn more: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/shop/aromatherapy-for-dogs/

Animals, Healing and Faith
Here is bonus episode #3 for you. This time, I share yet another blast from my podcasting past but this time there is a very definite spiritual reason that I don't even mention until the very end of the episode! This is from my former long running podcast, Animal Talk Naturally, that I shared with my colleague and co-host. This episode features my long-time friend once again, Dr. Hugh Bassham, who has since retired (recorded in March 2012). What a fantastic wealth of wisdom he learned and now shares whenever he has the opportunity. I'm very grateful to him and our friendship. It was good to hear my former co-host, Dr. Jeannie share her own stories on this podcast too since she was often very quiet (by her own choice) on the podcast. BOOKS Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It by veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham Animals Taught Me That by me.

DIG Into the Foundation of Health
DIG Into the Foundation of Health
This week we'll go into the laws of health which are actually loaded with vibrational frequencies as you'll discover through upcoming episodes. You can find more about the laws of health under the category on my website of the same name: Laws of Health Category This is episode 168.  8 Laws of Health *Nutrition is the foundation of health – according to species needs, not appetite, not convenience but what is needed to thrive. *Fresh air daily – get outside and breath the air. NOT indoor air, outside air unless that is too toxic and then diffuse essential oils. *Pure water daily – not chlorinated, fluoridated tap water but pure, clean fresh water.  *Exercise - it is NOT optional. God made us all to be ACTIVE and MOVE - animals /pets included. *Proper rest – without all the electronic devices invading our rest, turn them off. *Sunshine – without the toxic sunscreens we’re told to use…that is another reason we’re also so Vitamin D depleted. But in moderation - bathing not baking. Watch the animals as they know how get their sunshine! Job 12:7-10 *Moderation - all things are to be done in moderation, or tempered. I think of this as pruning as God "tempers" my steps. *Proper attitude which means to TRUST in the previous seven laws to work (especially during the detoxification process) and trust in God.

Hello everyone, I took a VERY long hiatus from the podcast as I wasn't sure I'd continue. So much was happening this summer as you all know. I'm back, a little differently. This episode will enlighten you to the direction. Upcoming episodes which I mention plus past ones I'd removed to use in courses (which I am no longer offering), will be added back. The flavor of this podcast will become evident. I hope you'll stay TUNED in to stay TUNED up! While this is episode 165 the number of episodes here doesn't reflect that. Episodes WILL be added back regularly. I've missed you, and above all else my heart is for you AND your dog(s) to BE well.

Better Health

This week on Episode 162, Donnie wasn't with me but instead my good friend, veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham joined me once again! It was a pleasure to have him share his personal message of better health. He has a book of the same name titled, "Better Health and A Plan to Achieve It" that is absolutely perfect for such a time as this.    1. We talked about what total and better health is and what that entails 2. Our personal views and how what we're being told is good for our health via media (and government) is NOT! 3. And the simple solutions Books mentioned (including Dr. Bassham's of course since this was the focus and topic of today's podcast): 1. Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It by Dr. Hugh Bassham 2. The Supernatural Power of Music by Len Mink 3. Redeeming Your Timeline by Troy Brewer   Donnie will be back with me - he's not going to be quite as regular, but OFTEN which makes me happy. We have a funny episode we want to do next which features both King and Ezra. We decided to not do a specific show on Ezra since I've already done several and we are still in major learning mode with this dog!

This week on Episode 161, we talk about our amazing Carolina Dog girl, Schatzie. She came into our lives in a beautiful, wild way and exactly what I know I (Kim) needed!    1. We talked about how she came to live with us 2. Her relationship with King 3. Her amazing-ness. It's hard to think of her as anything but amazing   Blog Post written in 2013 about her coming to us and how we lost King and her the same day and got them both back the same day! https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2013/06/lost-but-now-found/  Previous episodes that elaborate on Schatzie's story https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/48-lost-but-now-found/ https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/49-farewell-to-schatzie-the-carolina-dog/ https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/51-in-the-heart/   Next week we'll focus on Ezra - oh let us count the ways this dog has changed just about everything in our lives.

We talked about how he came to live with us 2. His role in our family 3. And Donnie has a special thing he relays about King - something I didn't even know until he shared it on this podcast! Blog Post written in 2013 about King - which means it's probably more accurate than what we shared today lol as memory fades with age: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2013/02/meet-king/    Next week we'll focus on our girl, the only girl we've had since we've been married, Schatzie.

This week on Episode 159, we talk about FOOD. As in DOG food. As in REAL dog food. As in CARNIVORE food.  To break it down a bit: 1. We talked about how we got started with Shadrach 2. How we source our food 3. How we counter the naysayers - or at least a couple of them 4. We especially worked to make it simple, but also I did offer and mention my own resource for you, Real Nutrition for Our Dogs.    BLOG POST with this episode written by King, our American Bully: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2021/04/here-we-go-again/    Next week we'll focus on our special dog, Donnie's best buddy (well besides God and me hehe), our American Bully, King.   As per normal UGH AGAIN,  I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

Through the Fire
Through the Fire
This week on Episode 158, we talk about another of our former amazing dog's, Meshach. This journey of ours with his was not only very difficult because of what he went through, but also because it was not just a physical problem but a spiritual one. So we open this podcast with prayer.  This week we talked about: 1. How Meshach came to us - that in and of itself was a miracle (they always are).  2. Meshach's ambassadorship 3. The spiritual journey he took us on, in particular me, Dr. Kim, that I never knew I needed to know, but then that's what ALL our dogs do for both of us! Meshach's Team Page: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/team-member/meshach-the-great-dane/  My book mentioned, available here as episodes with commentary, or as a free audio book at this link: https://mysoundwise.com/soundcasts/1609880335028s    QUOTES “By vaccinating every individual animal and not allowing it to develop its own immunity, we are effectively preventing the passing of the immunity to the future generations. A vaccine is always made from the most virulent form of the virus since pharmaceutical companies jump on the wagon as soon as the disease appears and the level of fear is at its highest. While in nature this virus would have mutated into a less virulent form, it does not do so in the vaccine. Generations of animals are therefore injected with the worst form of the virus and stripped of their natural immune response which would have been passed onto subsequent generations. What is passed forward instead is deformed DNA, and the destruction of the species must ensue. Vaccinated mothers do not pass on herd immunity, which then puts pups in greater danger of contracting disease while they are very young. By attempting to save the individual animal, we are effectively destroying the species. A healthy species is able to survive without human interference and we are taking that ability away from our animals." ~Aleksandra Mikic, DMH, DVH, DPh   "Mercury and aluminum are PROTEIN MUTATORS in their own right and DNA is PROTEIN! Related genomes will respond in RELATED FASHION so breeds that have related genomes respond to the assault in the same fashion making it LOOK like a breed or tribe thing but it is in reality a RELATED GENE DAMAGE THING: chronic diarrhea, parasitism, leaky gut, food allergies, IBD, pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, and anal gland saculitis are all autoimmune issues and this means induced by the vaccines".~Patricia Jordan, DVM   "80% of disease in our dogs occur within 3 months of vaccinating". ~Dr. Chris Day   "Our new grads don't know a heck of a lot more about vaccines than our older grads. And I've figured out why this is. They know a lot more about basic immunology, but they don't know about vaccinology and the two are not the same. Also, they're taught by people generally that know nothing about vaccinology. Now, when do they get their vaccine training? During their fourth year. And who's giving that? The veterinarians that know how to give vaccines, that still don't know about vaccinology. So we haven't gone very far from where we were ten years ago or twenty years ago with regard to training veterinarians about vaccines." ~Ronald Schultz, PhD, leading veterinary vaccine researcher during a 2009 Pet Vaccine Seminar   Resources for this episode: https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/rabies-miasm-in-dogs/ I HIGHLY recommend these books: IMMUNE DOGGY & HOW TO IMMUNIZE YOUR DOG WITHOUT VACCINES by Aleksandra Mikic, DMH, DVH, DPH VACC

The Shad, Part 2
This week on Episode 157, we talk about our former amazing dog, Shadrach aka Shad. He is the primary reason I began my journey into natural health in earnest. This is a continuation of last week's episode. Here is the link to Part 1 https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/the-shad-part-1/   This week we talked about: 1. How Donnie figured out the true illness that Shadrach was suffering from and how that escalated into the work I now do. 2. How we switched Shadrach to a raw diet and natural lifestyle. 3. His fall down an arroyo that led us even deeper into natural health - if we hadn't he wouldn't have lived past his 7th birthday! Which led us deeper into our essential oils journey too!

We left out so much that we have decided to do a Part 2 next week. Here is the link to Part Two https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/the-shad-part-2/  A reminder that our podcast is unscripted and I have zero idea what Donnie is going to say ever but he has no idea what I'll say either. This week we talked about: 1. How we got Shadrach during a tragedy in my family. 2. Initial challenges with him that were really about (as it always seems to be) exposing something I need to reckon with in my own life. 3. Shadrach's illness that led me straight into natural health without hesitation 4. How he saved his own life and Donnie's one morning  And a whole lot more!    Shadrach's NEW blog post:  https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2021/03/healing-comes-from-joy/ Next week we'll cover ... 1. How Donnie figured out the true illness that Shadrach was suffering from and how that escalated into the work I now do. 2. How we switched Shadrach to a raw diet and natural lifestyle. 3. His fall down an arroyo that led us even deeper into natural health - if we hadn't he wouldn't have lived past his 7th birthday! Which led us deeper into our essential oils journey too! As I said last week, we'll be sharing each dog that we've had together, and then we'll be going down  rabbit holes as Donnie has a way of saying things in a way I can't or don't!   Lastly, once again, I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

The Raw Golden
The Raw Golden
Okay we are back in earnest this week for Episode 155. I'll be honest and say I felt out of my element as I had grown used to being the only host for the last 2.5 years.  Keep in mind, our podcast is unscripted and I have zero idea what Donnie is going to say lol. I might appear snarky with him at times but trust me, it's just how he and I jest with one another ALL DAY LONG EVERY DAY! Thank you for joining us! I feel we missed a few points which I'll point out here and hope that you READ these: 1. Jesus is always intended to be the center of every episode. Donnie just zeroed in on raw feeding which he is strong in sharing. I am grateful for that though. So we will be working out our "groove" in the coming episodes no doubt! 2. Ezra did whine through a lot of the podcast this time - which he's never done before because usually he's with King and Donnie in another room. We made the mistake of putting King in another room because we didn't want them to get into one of their LOUD wrestling matches or tag lol. So when Donnie was talking I was petting and stroking Ezra, and when I was talking Donnie was, but if we forgot him for a moment he'd whine. He wanted King in the room too so that's how it will be going forward - King Bubba and Priest Ezra TOGETHER.  3. We left out a whole lot of the middle because honestly, some of our story is just not so pretty unless viewed through the lens of the Cross of Jesus Christ - which not everyone will do. So there you have it.   Fridge's Team Page: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/team-member/fridge-the-golden-retriever/  Fridge's Story: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2015/10/a-tale-of-three-dogs-part-one/  Fridge was such an awesome dog and we felt it was time for him to be included in the list of our amazing Teacher Dogs - of which they ALL have been and continue to be. In fact, they will ALL (current dogs and angel dogs) be doing the blogging for me on my blog! Shadrach impacted so many that often when I share his photos on FB, I get so many saying how much HE helped them - yes him not me. So I aim to allow them free rein!  Lastly I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

This week on Episode 153, is on the labels we put on our pets based on diagnoses received. This is a grave mistake in my opinion.

Walking in Truth
Walking in Truth
On episode 152, way back from 2009, a wise friend who passed away in January of 2011 shared this podcast with me on my former podcast. His name was Dr. Johan Joubert, a veterinarian in South Africa - not the one who is currently working with the large cats. The name is common there so please don't confuse them. Dr. Joubert was my friend and hearing all he has to say on this podcast is chilling and prophetic as much of what he said has come to pass in 2020.  I don't share his website as it is no longer available and sadly all of his great work is mostly gone as well. You may find some of his articles on veterinarian Dr. Tom Lonsdale's site at http://www.rawmeatybones.com    Dr. Joubert references this in the podcast: https://unitedtruthseekers.com/profiles/blogs/take-back-your-strawman-your-birth-certificate-bond-is-worth-bill?   QUOTE "Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game." ~Matt Taibbi   Free courses at https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/courses https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2020/12/how-to-have-a-healthy-dog-2/Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

Flying in Midair
Flying in Midair
This week on Episode 151, this is Chapter Twenty-Five of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about one incident with a hawk when we first moved to what was our desert retreat house. I say was because LOTS of houses and businesses have sprung up since so it's not as quiet or peaceful as it was 12 years ago. Nevertheless, I'm still grateful for all the encounters with wildlife we have had here and continue to do so. The photo with this episode is of a hawk sitting on our wall in our front yard this past summer.  Also in this episode is the AfterWord and Conclusion even though there is still one more chapter in this book (see below) - Shadrach the Neo Mastiff...Nuthin' But the Dog in Him. It was actually the first chapter I recorded a couple of years ago so don't miss it!    Scripture: Revelation 14   Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Desert Dogs
Desert Dogs
This week on Episode 150, this is Chapter Twenty-Four of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about the wild desert dogs (aka coyotes) that live in my area. WE encroached on THEIR territory but they manage to survive anyway. I tell of one up close and personal encounter I've had with them, but I've since had many since the writing of this book.  The photo with this episode is one I took of the female coyote who followed me and my Great Dane, Meshach one morning that I mention in this episode. She wasn't the last one to follow me and I'm sure she won't be the last.   Scriptures: "...be prepared in season and out of season." ~2 Timothy 4:2, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

This week on Episode 149, this is Chapter Twenty-Three of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about several of the wild animals that live in my desert sanctuary.

Healthcare or Disease Racketeering?
Healthcare or Disease Racketeering?
This week on Episode 148, I'm sharing a needed blast from my not so distant past but with all that is happening in the world today this is VERY appropriate to share. My former co-host and colleague and I share more on what is causing disease but masquerading as healthcare. It hasn't been about "health" in a very long time. This is the direction this show will focus on because this is the truth no matter who wants to believe it or not.  We WILL finish out the last three chapters of my book, Animals Taught Me That for the next three episodes, but this topic today is what we will come back to in February.    Quotes:  "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." ~Mark Twain  "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

This week on Episode 147, this episode was recorded in December of 2009 on my former long-running podcast, Animal Talk Naturally with my co-host Dr. Jeannie Thomason for our 3rd Annual Christmas show we titled, Redemption. We had guest Kristie Jones, with giveaways and music (see below). It was fun as they always are - this was Part 1 as these shows were always 2 hour events.

This week on Episode 146, this is Chapter Twenty-Two of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about primarily dogs I encountered at the park I ran at for ten years, plus one very special kitty, and a stinky surprise! This brought back all those memories for me and all but one were such good memories. While I feel I did beat myself up a lot in this book, I hope you come away inspired and encouraged instead. To know how much God loves you and His animal kingdom.

When Animals Attack!
This week on Episode 145, this is Chapter Twenty-One of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about a variety of animals that all decided I was a worthy target for one reason or another. I am fortunate as only one, our own family cat, actually did go through with the attack. However, I learned a lot more about animals through all of this as well as what we allow into our eyes and minds plays a huge role in what we attract into our lives too.    Scripture: "Show proper respect to everyone..." ~1 Peter 2:17, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Rest is a LAW of Health
This week on Episode 144, I went sort of out of the norm although of course I did talk about our dogs but also a lot about us. I was sort of all over the place but it all comes together if you listen to the whole message. How to heal simply and as cost effectively as possible - it's in this law of health that God mandated for our well being and the animals. The thing is, I'm not talking about sleeping lol although that IS part of the law of health. Just listen in and be patient, as I do get to it all weaving in stories as usual.    Blog post with this episode: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2020/10/rest-a-law-of-health/  All article and previous related episodes are linked within this blog post.    Scripture: "...Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" ~Esther 4:16, NKJV   Free Courses: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/courses Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

I hope they not only do that for you, but also encourage you to remember and share your own stories of the animals who've left lasting impressions upon your own life.  Scriptures: "Let us fix our eyes upon Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." ~Hebrews 12:2, NIV  "...because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

This week on Episode 140, this is Chapter Seventeen of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about three very special cats, orange tabbies to be exact! While only one of the three was mine, each one indelibly left their feline pawprint upon my heart. There is so much in these stories that I know I'd do differently now, but that is the journey we call life. I've been fortunate to have had so many animals gracing my own journey.  Scripture: "Come to me ally who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." ~Matthew 11:28, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

My love of this animal has never grown cold and never will. Horses were my first animal love and will always remain so with dogs neck and neck with them! There are both sad and happy stories in this book - I never stray from the truth, but I always try to leave people with hope also.  Scripture: "I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True." ~Revelation 14:11, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

He inspired me to even want to write this book. Sharing this story with you brought back such good memories of the time I got to spend with him. He changed my life forever and I'm so grateful my husband and I got the privilege of sharing our home with this larger than life boy. While my workouts have changed from what I share in this episode, and I've had several dogs since Shadrach passed away in 2011, this story lives on in my heart until I am reunited with him once again in eternity.  Scripture: "Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy." ~Psalm 126:2, NIV  Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

This week on Episode 129, this is Chapter Nine of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about a beautiful little soul I named Floppsy.

This week on Episode 128, this is Chapter Eight of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is another of those "hard" ones for me. It entails me working at a research facility when I was 18 years old (a LONG time ago).  I'm glad that was my only experience in this field, but I also know I can speak from experience when I share why I'm against this especially in light of what I witnessed and learned.     Scripture: "You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings." ~Psalm 51:16, NIV    Be sure to check out my newest free class, Treasures of Darkness: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/courses/treasures-of-darkness    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Working at the Pet Store
This week on Episode 125, this is Chapter Six of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about several of the animals that were in the pet store I was working in as a teenager - long ago in a galaxy far, far away lol. This story has all the emotions - funny, sad, and everything in between. While it was a very long time ago for me, it is still fresh in my mind today. My hope is as always is to educate as well as enlighten.  Scripture: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal." ~Matthew 6: 19, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

This week on Episode 123, this is Chapter Five of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about two very special dogs, one a German Shepherd puppy, the other a mixed breed German Shepherd puppy. This is not one of those feel good stories, but rather it's about exposing lack of commitment and responsibility to the detriment of these two dogs. Journey with me into another dark place in my own life, which I hope helps you avoid doing likewise.  Scripture: "The Lord has kept the promise He made..." ~1 Kings 8: 20, NIV  Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

While it's both a fun and a sad story, I hope you still learn just how much these special creatures give to us in our lives.  Scripture: "A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." ~Proverbs 18: 24, NIV  Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Pets at the Pearly Gates
This week on Episode 119, I'm sharing another blast from the past. This time I wanted to share one from WAY back in 2008 for one reason: to help some friends who are going through a hard loss of their beloved pets right now. They want to know if they'll be in heaven. I hope this will give some insights and encouragement for those desiring to know. We did a series of these type episodes on my former podcast which I'm happy to share here.  Scripture: "But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; and the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; and the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind." ~Job 12:7-10, NKJV Books mentioned: Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates by Gary Kurz Animals Immortal Beings by Dr. Mary Buddemeyer-Porter Heaven by Dr. Randy Alcorn   DOG WELLNESS Plan WEBSITE: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com  FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/doggonetruth PODCAST: www.doggone-truth.comSubscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

NOT a New Normal!
This week on Episode 115, I'm talking about what is currently going on in this world but using my own personal story with my puppy Ezra which I've not shared publicly before anywhere. This one was hard for me and yet relieving as well. While being transparent and vulnerable is always hard and opens us up to the critics, it also I pray gives hope to those who may be really struggling with a lot of things right not during this challenging and very uncomfortable time in history for the entire world.   Quotes:  Brene Brown: “You can choose courage or you can choose comfort, but you can’t have both.” Emerson said "The wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear."

The Scent of the Sent
