Certified Master Pet Tech™ Pet CPR, First Aid & Care InstructorVeterinary TechnicianABKA Pet Care Technician Over 17 years experience with Veterinary Medicine,Canine Nutrition,Canine Behavior & Training& Dog Daycare/Boarding Facility Management! One of the skills we teach is the Snout-to-Tail ™ Assessment. Read how this saved one pet's life . . . A pet owner who took our class loved her little dog because she did her homework assignment of the Snout-To-Tail ™ Assessment. Where you go from Snout-To-Tail ™ with deliberate intent and purpose creating a baseline of your pet’s health. Also, so that you know more of what is normal for your pet, so you can more quickly recognize what is not normal for your pet. She found mammary tumors growing on her dog. She took her to the vet, who confirmed the diagnosis. Luckily she caught it early enough that treatment was successful. However, the vet did tell her that if she had let that go just another five or six months, the outcome may not have been as good. This simple skill that can take only a few minutes added thousands of minutes to this pet’s life. When I tell this story in the classroom, some people wonder how she didn't notice the mammary tumors in the first place. The thing is that she never really put her hands on her dog, from Snout-To-Tail ™ , with deliberate intent and purpose, like we teach in the class. She said she would come home from work, make her dog dinner, have dinner herself, her dog would sit on her lap and she would pet it. –Used with permission from ** Although no refunds are offered for our seminars, before or after the seminar date, your tuition is transferrable to another seminar. **Class may be filmed for internal and possible promotional use**

Extended Leadership Experience-North Texas, Dallas First Unitarian session 4

Extended Leadership Experience-North Texas, Dallas First Unitarian session 4
Event on 2017-04-01 09:30:00
For the last decade, the Southern Region has been offering the Dwight Brown Leadership Experience. Six years ago, DBLE's sister school, The Southern Unitarian Universalist Leadership Experience (SUULE) was created as a compliment to DBLE in the eastern half of the Region. Congregations that send teams of leaders to these events year after year consistently report the following:  They see a great change in the abilities of their leaders. Their Leadership Experience Graduates are more grounded, centered, and prepared for leadership.  Congregations and Leaders are better connected to the larger Faith after attending a Leadership Experience. They know they are not alone and that they have support in their holy work.   Congregations and Leaders are equipped to handle conflicts in a better way, and they are quicker to ask for help before things get out of hand.  Coupled with the great success of our Leadership Experiences, we have also seen some drawbacks. One drawback to the way we have been offering this deeply experiential learning opportunity is that it happens intensely and all at once, in a short five day event. This offers little time for reflection, experimentation with the tools, or time for the kind of struggle it takes to come to deeper awareness. In addition, the experience can be overwhelming for some and impossible for others, due to health reasons or family concerns. The Southern Region Staff has also heard feedback from congregations explaining that there is a great cost associated with sending a team to DBLE, and many congregations are entering difficult financial times. Finally, taking a week away from work and family obligations is not possible for all leaders, making the current Leadership Experiences not entirely accessible. Building on the success of DBLE and SUULE, the Southern Region Staff of the Unitarian Universalist Association invites the North Texas Unitarian Universalist Congregations to an Extended Leadership Experience. During the registration for the first workshop in the series there is the opportunity to register for all 4 workshops and receive a discount for the series.  Childcare must be reserved by March 27, 2017. Cancellation and refund policies:  All cancellation notices/refund requests must be made by reply to your confirmation email or by contacting us through the event listing prior to the business day before the program/event begins. We may take up to 4 business days to evaluate your refund request. We are unable to issue any refund for no-shows or for cancellation requests received after the date we are obligated to pay our host site (date varies by event). Generally, if you cancel your registration with sufficient notice, you may receive a partial refund of your registration costs. We will retain to cover administrative costs for cancellations up to 30 days prior to the event, or 0 to cover administrative costs up to 14 days prior to the event. For Leadership Experiences, the 0 per participant deposit is non-refundable (but can be transferred to another accepted nominee from the same congregation for the same class). Event cancellation: the Southern Region staff cancels events with low registration. Registration fees are refunded in full when events do not have enough registrations to cover event costs.

First birthday wishes and happy quotes

Remember this: Real Birthday Wishes Quotes are not annual affairs. Real Happy Birthday Quotes are the days when we have a new birth.


If I’d known I was going to live this long (100 years), I’d have taken better care of myself.


You’re not forty; you’re eighteen with twenty two years of experience.


Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.


“You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.”


Birthday wishes quotes – Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.


Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again.


All my life, I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific.


Thirty-five is a very attractive age; London society is full of women who have of their own free choice remained thirty-five for years.


It is utterly false and cruelly arbitrary to put all the play and learning into childhood, all the work into middle age, and all the regrets into old age.


We know we’re getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it


Happy birthday quotes – Women deserve to have more than twelve years between the ages of twenty eight and forty.


At middle age the soul should be opening up like a rose, not closing up like a cabbage.


“There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents and only one for birthday presents, you know.”


You will recognize, my boy, the first sign of old age: it is when you go out into the streets of London and realize for the first time how young the policemen look.


People ask me what I’d most appreciate getting for my eighty seventh birthday. I tell them, a paternity suit.


From our birthday, until we die, Is but the winking of an eye.

It’s getting harder for sanity to win in NFL talks
As the clock strikes midnight Thursday on the NFL’s labor contract, it’s probably safe to say the same fans who can diagram a 4-3 defense blindfolded don’t have much of an understanding of the issues that could lead to empty stadiums next fall.
