As I type this, the snow and freezing rain are falling hard here in Kentucky.
Winter is hard on Winston. He doesn’t enjoy going to daycare like Ivy does, but he still enjoys the excitement of doing things and going places.
The longer he spends at home without something to break up the duration, the more whiny he gets. He will sit in front of us, chomp the air with his teeth, and cry.
What do you guys do to keep your pups entertained at home during these winter dark days Any suggestions are welcomed! ⬇️
We woke up to a little bit of snow falling this morning❄️☃️

¿Los perros sueñan⠀
Gracias al estudio de los encefalogramas para medir la actividad cerebral, los científicos han demostrado que los perros podemos soñar 😴. ⠀
Cuando los perros nos quedamos dormidos, aumenta nuestra actividad cerebral. Los científicos se refieren a este primer tramo de sueño como fase de onda lenta o SWS (slow wave sleep, sueño de onda lenta). Este sueño lento se interrumpe cada cierto tiempo, por las llamadas etapas REM (rapid eyes movement, movimiento rápido de ojos). Entonces, nuestra actividad cerebral se multiplica. Se conoce como fase REM porque, durante ella, los perros experimentamos movimientos oculares rápidos. Es en esta fase cuando soñamos 💤.⠀
Durante este periodo de gran actividad del cerebro, solemos agitarnos, mover nuestras patas de un modo veloz, e incluso, articular sonidos y ladrar 🗣. ⠀
Es un comportamiento normal que nos sirve para fijar nuestras experiencias y lo que hemos aprendido durante el día.⠀

Do dogs dream⠀
Thanks to the study of encephalograms to measure the brain activity, scientists have shown that we dogs can dream 😴.⠀
When we dogs fall asleep, our brain activity increases. Scientists refer to this first stretch of sleep as a slow wave phase or SWS (slow wave sleep). This slow sleep of the dog is interrupted every so often by the so-called REM stages (rapid eyes movement). Then, our brain activity multiplies. It is known as REM phase because, during it, we dogs experience rapid eye movements. It is in this phase when we dream 💤.⠀
During this period of high activity of the brain, we usually shake, move our legs in a fast way, and even articulate sounds and bark 🗣.⠀
It is a normal behavior that helps us to secure our experiences and what we have learned during the day.⠀

What’s in Norman’s “bowl” Ever since we got our hands on the @westpawus Toppl last month, every Saturday and Sunday we offer one of Norman’s 3 meals in this (usually breakfast or lunch.. And yes, the diva is still fed 3 times a day - he’s a big boy and thinks it’s the end of the world when we try and switch it to 2 🙄).
Norman gobbles his meals in record time, and this easily takes him 30+ minutes to finish #hugewin. He is fed 2 pounds a day, which is .66lbs a meal, and this holds one of his meals no problem!
This “toy” is SUPER durable. Norman is an aggressive toy lover (rip any stuffy or squeaker) and this still looks brand new when he is done with it.
Preparation is SUPER easy. Just thaw your @bigcountryraw meals as normal, stuff the Toppl and refreeze. Once they are done, they can be thrown in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
What’s in Norman’s Toppl @bigcountryraw Turkey Salmon Lamb, one of his faves 🦃🐟🐑

If you asked me personally what I am most thankful for (& I could speak words) I would no doubt say to you my humans. You see, I was found as a stray, one who didn’t come from a very great past. My humans have no doubts that I was abused by a man/men, that I was neglected and probably starved. Nobody really had anyway of knowing the extent of the work that needed to be done with me, that is until 2 weeks after getting settled in & the signs REALLY started to show. Despite the fact that I didn’t always let my humans figure triggers out the easy way, they still didn’t give up on me. You see my humans and I, we’ve been through some ish together when it comes to my rehabilitation & learning to not be terrified of the world and everything in it. I’m thankful that they don’t blame me, not one little bit, instead they blame the monster who hurt me to the point that I felt going into beast mode was the only way to protect myself in threatening/scary situations. I’m thankful that the one handful of bad times wasn’t even close to enough to outweigh the handfuls and handfuls of good times. I’m thankful that my humans never once questioned if I was worth it and if they should just send me back to the shelter where my fate wouldn’t have ended so well. I’m thankful that they have been so loving and patient while I learned to trust them, for trying(& succeeding) in teaching me how to be a dog, for showing me nothing but love and happiness and what it feels like to run free as can be through a field, Or the fact that I haven’t seen the inside of a cage since the day I left the shelter, the big comfy bed that I get to hog and the never ending treats and belly rubs!! I came from nothing and now I have more then I could ever possibly ask for. I’m thankful for a second chance at life and for it being a pretty damn pawsome one at that ❤️
I’m also especially thankful for cookies!!! 🍪
