  1. Hi Paul,

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. You can read all about it in my post, which will go live tomorrow morning.



  2. Haha, guess what, Paul? I have nominated you for a versatile blogger award, but this time it’s coming from me as Limebirdkate.

    Don’t worry about having to follow up on it. There’s actually a lot of work to do with it (IMO), but I did it for you because I thought it would be nice publicity.



  3. Hi Paul,
    I just did a little blog about my dog and human experiences and this led me to find your website. Great work.
    Like you and patrice ayme, I am devoted to an enlightenment that is rather basic: truth, integrity, meaning what you say &c. My blogs touch on current issues.
    However, the focus of my website is different–it attempts to formalize the consequences of such an approach. I’ve had some success and look forward to linking with others with similar aspirations, but different goals and projects.
    Have a look at http://thee-online.com and let me know what you think.


    1. Dear Warren, took a very quick look at website/blog and was intrigued, to say the least. Watched your video on the ‘home page’ but found it raised a number of questions. Need to explore your content more carefully later on. Certainly found your piece about your dog Mali interesting, see http://www.thee-online.com/blog/post/Animal-Reality-Can-We-do-any-Better.aspx for other readers. We have 11 dogs here in Payson and there’s no doubt in my mind that dogs have a way of living in the present, unimpeded by the past, that we humans could really learn from.

      So appreciate you calling by and hope that we can stay in contact, Paul


  4. Small dog breeds tends to fertile much faster than middle dog breeds and big dog breeds. Fertility periods can also vary from their breed, not just their size. So, it is best to check the list of dog breeds or consult your vet in order to identify what the most favorable times for mating are. In some cases, you’ll also have to go through some trial and error just to learn what works for your female dog. By following all of these advices, you will be able to have good and healthy puppies in a few months’ time.


  5. I would like to say I love your blog and the wonderful and beautiful things you share as well as the inspiration and smiles you bring in doing so! Thank you for being you and I hope even if you do not accept awards you will accept the sentiment expressed as I honor you with one. There is no prize that comes with the award other than my appreciation and being grateful you are part of our world and making a difference by sharing in such a positive way…
    I have posted the award and link to it here I hope you will accept it or at least the sentiment behind it! http://artisticlyxpressedthoughts.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/awards-and-shared-gifts/

    With love,


  6. hi Paul-

    i ran across your blog in search of like-minded folks who recognize that our culture’s values are a fast-track to a dead-end… coincidentally, i just recently published a post about lessons learned from my dog; perhaps you will enjoy it… in any event, i’m a writer and former “wall street guy” who, having realized the mess we’re making of this planet with our greed and pursuit of senseless, vapid “values”, tossed all that away to move deep into a little cabin deep the mountains in search of some answers… i spend most of my time exploring, learning from and writing about nature and her lessons… if you have a chance, i hope you’ll stop by and check out my blog… i’ve bookmarked yours and hope to spend more time here, as my painfully slow backwoods internet connection allows…


  7. Dear Paul,
    I’m Delighted to have you following my site. I believe like minded folks cross our paths at crucial times in our life. Sadly we lost our “Harley” in November. He was a full bred pit. He was 16, and the most loving member of our family. I cried bitterly for months. I have recently become fascinated with behavior, body language, and all aspect of our canine friends. Especially our actions and reactions to their behaviors. I’m excited to read your postings.
    Your New Friend, and Blog Follower,
    Anastasia 😊


    1. One of our rescue dogs, Casey, is a pit and a most friendly and loveable animal would be hard to find. These are the times in the affairs of man where learning how to behave from our dogs is critical to our future. Best wishes, Paul.


    1. Karen, that is very kind and generous of you. Thank you so much. I’ve just been across to your place and signed up to follow your own writings; can’t understand why I didn’t do that before now.


  8. Hi Paul 🙂 We haven’t met before, but I have arrived here via a recommendation from Sue Dreamwalker (Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary). She suggested you might be able to help me out 🙂 I am a Canine Psychology Student working towards a degree in Canine Psychology. I have a way to go yet, but the current course requires that I do a “Special Study”. The topic I have been given in Canine Nutrition. As I’m sure you know this can have a big impact on a dog’s behaviour. This study requires that I do a survey re what people feed their dogs, with the intention that I create comparison charts and discuss the whole subject in some depth. I am hunting for kind-hearted dog owners who would be prepared to participate and answer 3 short questions. No personal details will be included. It is just a fact finding mission! I wondered if maybe you would be willing to participate? Or maybeyou know others who would? The questions are: 1) What do you feed your dog? 2) Why did you choose this food? and 3) How many times per day do you feed your dog? Breed of dog would also be interesting if you felt so inclined 🙂 I am finding it difficult to drum up interest amongst local “real-world” dog owners round my location and standing in the middle of London asking strangers in the street might get me punched!!!! I would welcome any assistance you could offer, but of course there is absolutely no obligation to respond in any way, and that is fine. I totally understand and it is not a problem 🙂 Many thanks for taking the time to read this, and have a lovely day.
    Europa’s Icewolf, Alpha Female of the Europa Pack 🙂 😉


  9. Glad I found you and I look forward to reading your posts. My wife and I have two large dogs a Great Pyranees and an Anatolian Aukbash mix, along with five cats. All rescues as was our husky who passed away three years ago. I believe they teach us so much more than we teach them. My wife is currently the Pennsylvania state coordinator and the transport coordinator for the National Great Pyranees Rescue. Keep up the good work.


  10. Hello Paul, Just purchased your book on Amazon. I look forward to reading it. I have been meaning to buy it sooner, however, I am so busy with everyday life and then of course there is the eye disorder, making reading something I have to limit. Karen 🙂


      1. I already love your writing so I am sure I will love the book (the kindle), however, I am going buy the print version for my daughter who is passion about dogs and other precious animals. Karen 🙂


  11. Hi Paul. Kristen RN (from Riverbend ICU) here. I finally made it to read your blog and am happy to see you writing again. I had faith you would regain your skill. Glad to see your healed up and living life.
