Beagles speak

We all know they "speak" (howl, bay, mumble, groan, bark, whine). Chatting with various people across the world about their Beagles, especially those that are having some difficulty with the behaviour of their Beagles, I'm realising more and more that people don't LISTEN to their Beagles. They hear them, some understand the noises that come out of them more than others but few realise the language these dear hounds that we love so very much speak, without words, without noise.  Many that have come to us for advice and keep in touch will be well aware of my probably most over-used ..read more

Bailey Since Bailey's journey with cancer started five and a half months ago and we have done MANY things, mainly holistic, and sharing all of that in one post is a lot. I will briefly summarise the journey here and add links to our Revive 'n Thrive blog which is geared to holistic and energetic healing should this interest you. Let's try and stick to basic education for Beagle in Mind. Bailey was born 28 September 2000. He was 9 years and 8 months when this journey started. Deciding to establish a NPO Educational Trust is something which David and I felt very passionate. At the time w ..read more

Keep Calm & Love your Beagle: Intro

As I write this today in South Africa we are on day 4 of our nationwide 21 day lockdown and already we are receiving messages from people saying they are feeling depressed and anxious being couped up. They say their dogs can clearly feel the stress and tension and the games and mental stimulation ideas are wearing thin.  Last year we started working with Helen Hansen and we came up with an idea for a workshop for owners who struggle with their dogs. All that attended had dogs with anxiety problems and they had tried all behavioural routes so they were keen to see how we ..read more

Photo credit K Mercer For more information Photo credit M Kruger For more information All of us have a story to tell. Well I believe we do. Whether it is first hand witnessing fires destroying beautiful forest, or seeing deforestation happening due to people's "need" to build, manufacture and space, saving every drop of water because your town, city or country is running dry due to severe drought or you know someone that has experienced these and you saw the fear, the sadness, the despondency I wasn't really one to tak ..read more

The big C

Even though technically February is Cancer Awareness month for humans (well we made this assumption due to there being a Pet Cancer Awareness Month in May) we have decided to jump on the proverbial bandwagon and kind of hijack February 4th as World Cancer Day for Hounds as well as humans. We don't want to wait until May to share the info. That scary C word. We dread it, yet so many of us know very little about it, even if we've lost a pet or pets to it.  Last year we lost two cornerstone Beagle boys here at Beagle in Mind to cancer.  The s ..read more

The World of Rescue Part 3: I want to adopt.......NOW.
Beagle in Mind
by
4y ago
Our instagrat society and what it's doing to rescue Having worked as a sort of "middle man" organisation between rescue organisations and people either adopting or surrendering we mainly hear people complain about how long it takes for rescue orgs to answer their e-mails/Whatsapps/messages and/or how long they have to wait to adopt. What's the rush? Instagrat. In this world we have become impatient about everything. A world where the internet is never fast enough, the meal doesn't come quick enough, we can't get to our destination speedily enough. We are putting this ..read more

It's smelling delicious here at the Beagle in Mind kitchen. What's on the stove? Delicious, nutritious bone broth. Once done this healthy pot of goodness can be served up as a broth over your dog's food. ​Warm it up for those chilly days, spoon it over cold to add those extra nutrients during summer or freeze it as fun and healthy ice cube treats for those extra hot days!  Why your dog should be eating bone broth Bone broth is an immune booster. That means a happier mor healthy hound.  It maintains a healthy digestive tract, which means? It's the gelatin that helps with joints and that "plug ..read more

World of Rescue Part 2: Dibs! Supermarket rescue
Beagle in Mind

4y ago
In Part 1 we touched on people needing to be aware and honest with themselves about whether they have chosen adoption to adopt or whether they are in fact merely choosing it as a cheaper alternative to buying a puppy.  We feel there is another part to rescue evolving amongst potential adopters.  The growing trend of treating rescue like a supermarket is a growing concern to us. Especially amongst "Designer Rescue" organisations.  The two main concerns are Entitlement and "Pickiness" Entitlement Though the act of adopting c ..read more

How to guide: Liver Bread

Liver Liver is the most nutrient dense organ meat being high in vitamin A (beneficial for eye health and reducing diseases that cause inflammation - such as arthritis), folic acid, iron and zinc (important for the functioning of the immune system and thyroid function) Brown rice flour vs wheat flours for dogs This is a personal preference. As allergy symptoms are becoming more prevalent we prefer to do all baking without wheat. So many dogs are showing signs of wheat sensitivity or allergies. We feel "better safe than sorry".  Recipe: 500g raw liver 3 eggs About 2 ..read more
