Some Information Regarding the Kerry Blue Terrier Pet Dog

The Blue Kerry terrier pet dog is one of the most mysterious breeds of terriers. This is because of the fact that even though the breed has been known by the Irish for at leas 150 years, nobody really knows where they came from or how they were first bred.

Various legends are told in order to explain the appearance of the Kerry blue terrier breed. Some say that the peasants bred them for hunting purposes since noblemen monopolized the use of wolfhounds. Thus, noblemen hunted with their wolfhounds while peasants poached with their Kerries.

Another legend speaks of a wrecked Russian ship that contained a blue dog. This dog swam into Irish shores and there, mated with the local terrier population. This, of course, started the genetic pool of blue Kerry terriers.

Whatever the case, the blue Kerry terrier sure has a colorful history. It started as a working dog, helping hunters bring in prey. It would also be trained as a police dog by the English. Today, it is considered to be one of the best breeds of dogs that one can own. This is in part of its excellent abilities as a watchdog.

One thing that is so cool about owning a Blue Kerry terrier pet dog is the fact that this breed is adaptable to every situation. It can be a hardworking hunter’s dog. It can become the vigilant watchdog. If you want companionship, it can also provide that. People who are fortunate to have a Blue Kerry terrier pet dog even say that once you are a Kerry lover, you are forever a Kerry lover.

There are some terrier characteristics which may cause a bit of trouble for your dog. Like all terriers, the Blue Kerry terrier pet dog can get into fights with other dogs. In order to prevent this, you need to make sure that the Blue Kerry terrier pet dog is properly socialized. Usually this is done by the breeder.

Most people, when they are getting a pet often ask the question of whether or not a pet can be housebroken easily. Thankfully enough, the Blue Kerry terrier pet dog has a disposition that is easily house trained. The Blue Kerry terrier pet dog is actually quite eager to learn. This means that you will be able to train it very quickly.

Although a Blue Kerry terrier can become an excellent playmate for children, it must be taken that the children do not show any cruelty to the dog.

The Blue Kerry terrier is also one of the more hardy types of terriers. This is because the Blue Kerry terrier has very few genetic problems. Before buying one, however, you need to ask for eye certifications and hip x-rays. These are the most commonly afflicted parts of the Blue Kerry terrier.

A Blue Kerry terrier is not really for everyone. Some people may find it a bit too playful. Some people may not really get used to the Blue Kerry terrier’s curiosity. People may not really understand its habit of following everyone around. Today, the fate of the Blue Kerry terrier dog lies in the hands of the breeders who care for them, nurture them, and make sure that they have great homes to stay in.

Liveblogging HealthyPetNet Conference Call

Tuesday, March 17, 2009 6:30 p.m. MDT

Dennis Berardi, company founder and former CEO is conducting this conference call.

Economy is scary

9/10 people said they are open to learning more about how to increase their level of security

We have a product people use every day. People don’t lose their jobs and quit feeding their pets. The dogs and cats are part of the family.

We love this opportunity.

But first, Lindsay Andrew…

This lady lost her job a month and a
half ago. She has gone full-time at HealthyPetNet, her sales have increased
unbelievably. She had been in HealthyPetNet much earlier but hadn’t really
worked it as a business. Her mother had been in it for years.

She makes cold calls every day. She’s having great success. Her
sponsor, John Albrecht, has been helping her a lot. She gets on three-way
calls and conference calls. She has acquired many new reps. She
calls them to help them every day. She’s treating this like a full-time
job. Makes a huge difference to make that relationship with your new

Her volume was $ 3400 per month when she started. The next month, her
volume was $ 13,000. She has new reps who are in pet professions, breeders,

Dennis observed that it makes a difference when you treat this as a

The three-way calls are so important.

Now, we’re talking about the reason for the call. Something new and exciting.

We have 3500 reps.

The key to this business is to build an organization. You need the J Paul Getty thing, I’d rather have the efforts of 100 people than of my own efforts.

March Madness Recruiting Promotion

It started yesterday!

If you sign up two executive reps by the end of the month, you will receive an extra $ 100 bonus. Then you get the Quick Start bonuses which is $ 86. If you are an Exec Rep right now, you would get two shares of the recruiting pool which is about $ 60.

Tell them about this promotion. That’s a lot of money!

This should cause a lot of excitement within our group. Get on the phone and let your reps know. Do three-ways.

Set a goal for yourself that you are going to sign up two new reps by the end of the month.

What if you could imagine that you would lose your home if you didn’t sign up two executive reps?! You would do it!

If this works great, he suspects that they will do this again.

Then he introduced our new CEO, Lester Thornhill.

Lester… Look at what Lindsay will do, she’ll increase her sales as she
teaches her reps and gets more reps.

Promotion. You can do it multiple times. If you sign up four
reps, you’ll get that extra money for them! No limit!

Lindsay’s story should tell us that we can do anything. Take it
seriously! Work this business with a full-time attitude.

You don’t have to do this alone. Use your upline. Do three-ways. If your sponsor can’t do this with you, call the company, we’ll get you someone who can work it with you.

The top reps were not always as confident as they are today.

Draw the line in the sand and work this thing with a full-time attitude.

Dennis: If you believe you can do it, you can do it.

They’re going to post the winners on an email.

Visualize yourself being on that list.

Our goal is to double our distributorship. If we all signed up one rep we’d double our distributorship.

[So as I'm typing this, I'm thinking of the ten large sample bags I just gave out at my marathon training group. I've ordered another 12 bags for this week. Hmmmm.].

He told about a rep who has been on calls with him, she has signed up five new reps, added $ 2400 to her sales. And she is blind and in a wheelchair. If she can do it, you can do it.

If you go to that convention (in May) it will change your life.

Let’s do this together!

A day in the life of a HealthyPetNet Rep

Nice Mite photos

A few nice Mite images I found:

Mites on the underside – Japanese Maple

Image by avlxyz
Help! Our Japanese Maple seems to be infested with mites, lots of them!

I noticed the leaves dropping off a few weeks ago, but I put it down to the heat wave we had back then.

This morning, I decided to take a closer look, and it didn’t look good at all! At first I thought that it might be some fungal or bacterial infection, but on closer inspection of the underside, it looks like the mites have been busy!

I gave it a light coat of pyrethrin insect spray. I should have used some insectical detergent or sulphur instead. Too late now :)

- mites on the underside

- holes in leaves

tarsonemid mites in a student’s petri dish. See how they can climb right over the inner lip and get out into the space between the top and bottom halves of a petri dish. Little devils! Might be charming if they weren’t little vectors that track various molds and bacteria through our cultures.

Mate, you got mites!

The mites can be seen among the hairs of its mandibles, like ticks on a cat or dog.
Typical "collector’s beetle", rather large (4,5 cm / 1.8 inches from mandibles to abdomen) and fierce-looking, though this guy was very docile. Was released on a fallen tree.

Típico "escarabajo de coleccionista", bastante grande (4,5 cm desde las mandíbulas hasta el abdomen) y aparentemente amenazador, aunque este fulano era muy dócil. Fue liberado sobre un árbol caído.

It’s not ideal photographing dogs near to a pile of parked cars, which is how it always is in the square above the basilica in Menton.

Aren’t those blue eyes amazing…

Wellness Wednesday: Project Meru

I have a finely tuned ability to talk myself out of anything remotely interesting. It’s very easy to stay with what is comfortable. Making a change, well, that is hard. And I’ve found personally speaking, trying the whole “make little changes every day” with no goal in mind doesn’t ever really cut it. I need to make a big dramatic decision, commit to it, and then figure out what small series of changes need to take place in order to make it happen.

Case in point: I like hiking. I’d like to do it more, especially since we live in such a great area for it. The dogs would love it too. But do I do it? No, because that takes planning and I never get around to it.

And yet I decided, when I’m in Tanzania again in June for a World Vets trip, to tag along with our team leader Dr. Teri as she- and now I- tackle Mt. Meru, Tanzania’s second-highest mountain after Kilimanjaro.

Do I camp? Not really.

Do I hike? Occasionally.

Do I know anything about hiking and camping at altitude? Nope. So why would a person who really doesn’t do much backpacking decide to make their inaugural wilderness adventure a 14000 foot slog on another continent? Well, if you must know, my dad called me a wimp all the time when I was a kid, and I’ve spent the last several decades trying to prove him wrong.

There’s other reasons, too. I spent the first five years after I had my first child falling down that sinkhole of taking care of everyone in the family except myself- a story I know I am not alone in- and I was terribly unhappy about it. I didn’t want to be unhealthy, didn’t want to set that example for my kids, and wanted them to know they should value themselves and those around them enough to make healthy choices.

Having a dog, by the way, is a great motivator for this sort of thing. They don’t walk themselves, after all, and they are just SO DARN EXCITED about going for a walk it’s impossible for it to not rub off at some point. Brody played a great role in helping me stick to a routine. I had to. If he didn’t get exercise he’d eat furniture.

So why not take it a few steps further? I figure I have a good 10 more years where cold long hikes with no showers sound appealing and I might as well take of advantage of it while I’m youngish enough to be able to recover from any damage I do. And that is how I wound up here, not a lifelong outdoor enthusiast, not an elite athlete, but a mom of two young kids who decided to do something big to show that even us run-of-the-mill, suburban-dwelling, dog walking, Starbucks loving, reality-TV-watching types can achieve something way out of our comfort zones if we’re willing to take a risk.

Now, making a decision like this is admittedly standing on the razor sharp precipice between brave or stupid, depending on how you look at it. I’ve researched the climb enough to realize it’s certainly within the range of possibility for me to manage, as long as I prepare well. And fortunately for me, I have a willing cohort who is happy to be a hiking buddy / mountain lion deterrent.

Brody and I will be working on our endurance together over the next 2 months, and although he won’t be able to come with me on the culmination of all the preparation, I consider his support an integral part of my training program. (As much as I love Koa, I know her fitness level and her age make her unsuitable for strenuous exercise, so she’ll continue her more age-appropriate gentle walk regimen.)

I’ll be talking about the hikes itself, the gear we end up using, and any health concerns for him or for me that pop up along the way. Hopefully some of you who are also venturing out into the blossoming spring will jump in with your own stories or advice and it can be a team effort! Trust me, I’ll need all the pep talks I can get.

Day 1: It's all fun and games at sea level.

And off we go on an adventure!
