The Glass Ark

Canine Culture

 

There is a pawtastic online exhibit I’ve sniffed out called ‘The Glass Ark’ at LE STANZE DEL VETRO. It’s been running since April & will continue until November of this year. That means until then you can experience a virtual tour of Pierre Rosenberg’s glass collection which is part of the current exhibition online.

Rosenberg has been travelling over 30 years to Venice which has a long history of pawsome techniques & quite the cat’s meow for glassblowing since the 13th Century. “They never display fierce poses, which are typical of more traditional animalier sculptures, & above all, they are never conceived as a toy.” 

Let’s take a sniff but with a gentle nose, these pieces are dog gone fragile.

Sorting Fact from Fiction Canine Epilepsy Awareness

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. In the last hundred years there has been wagnificent progress in understanding the biological basis of canine epilepsy, the development of effective antiepileptic drugs (AED) & other modalities of management & the pawvention of seizures. Yet, there continues to be confusion & misunderstanding when it comes to canine epilepsy.

Let’s take a sniff at some of the more common misunderstandings or myths.

Canine epilepsy is not a death sentence.  Most dogs living with epilepsy can live long & happy lives with proper seizure management/control. I have a pawtacular life in which I am a Princess &  the Prettiest of All Pretties ( huMom says so). My life is full of wooftastic dogventures, doglightful gratitude & so much love. This good dog couldn’t ask for more.

Epilepsy is a disorder not a disease. An epilepsy warrior isn’t sick, during an episode something electrical is going wrong in the brain.

Not all seizures are due to epilepsy.  Many other health issues can cause seizures. Blood sugar issues, head injury, electrolyte problems, kidney or liver disease, & eating poison can all cause seizures in good dogs.

Dogspite how your dog’s seizures look to you, seizures are not painful. We dogs will feel confused & may have episodes of panic. It is impawtant to be prepared by creating a safe & quiet (both in sound & light) space.

Finally, dogs do not swallow their tongues during a seizure episode. Although they may bite their tongue or any fingers that get too close.

Sharing information & creating awareness is how we overcome these misunderstandings. That’s why we believe it is dog gone impawtant to support  Wally’s Canine Epilepsy Foundation in their mission to educate, inform & assist good dogs living with canine epilepsy.

Wally’s Canine Epilepsy Foundation also helps save the lives of canine epilepsy warriors every day by assisting those humans who through no fault of their own can not afford the life saving medications for their good dogs. Good dogs who might otherwise would be surrendered or worse, euthanized.

A gift to WCEF gives hope to those epilepsy Warriors & their families who are not only battling the ‘epi monster’ from a health standpoint but also financially.
