On Loving and Loss - Aug 14, 2007 - 2:28:17 PM
What can you really say about losing a pet? Death is terribly final no matter how it comes and to whom it comes. The Bottom line is that it is forever. When you have a pet that you have lived with, cared for and laughed with, it is desperately hard to say good bye. The next tough part of it is that there are lots of people who will not understand your grief and will go as far, at times, as laughing at you for being so sad over a cat, dog, hamster, fish, bird ect…

Buddy's Story continues... - Jul 25, 2007 - 10:19:34 AM

For those of you who read my article last month you will remember that we got a small male Labrador puppy named Buddy. He was born and bred in Nassau, and has a wonderfully sunny disposition.
Over the past weeks Buddy has not disappointed us and continues to delight us with his amusing antics. After the first few days in the house we decided to introduce Buddy to our 15 month old Potcake, who looks remarkably like a golden Labrador himself. After a few initial sniffs, and tentative “bounces” Buddy and Chief have formed a strong bond are if allowed would be virtually inseparable...

Potcake or thoroughbreed - Jul 9, 2007 - 10:55:58 AM
Over the years, on occasions, most of us have been faced with the dilemma, provided we have decided that we want a dog, as to what kind of dog to bring into the family. Our children sit pouring over the “Wonderful World of Dogs” or similar publications exclaiming in rapt excitement, “that’s the dog I want Mummy”. You look over their shoulder and see, in dismay, that the animal in question is perhaps a 100 pound plus dog and you live in a two bedroom apartment! It is very difficult to choose what kind of dog you want...

Owning a Parakeet - Jun 24, 2007 - 11:59:27 AM
Some people call them Parakeets, some people call the Budgies, Budgerigars, and others refer to them as Love Birds. Whatever you call them, these enchanting little colourful, feathered people are highly entertaining and a wonderful addition to your family, or extended menagerie, as in our case. The word Parakeet means a small slender bird of the parrot family...

The beautiful Betta Fish - Jun 20, 2007 - 11:23:38 AM
Have you ever been in a pet store practically anywhere in the world and seen these beautiful, but pathetic looking fish, in tiny drinking cups made of   clear plastic,
with barely enough room to turn around in? They are Betta Fish, otherwise known as Siamese Fighting Fish. These beautiful little fish come in every colour you can think of, they have wonderful plume-like fins that float rather like silk around them when they swim. The beautiful ones are the males (so often so in the animal world!) the females are much plainer to look at.

A new puppy, Buddy's Story - Jun 13, 2007 - 11:34:27 PM
Several months ago our very beautiful and beloved Bernese mountain dog, Star, died of cancer (malignant Histiocytosis) and the year before, her brother passed away from the same cancer…. But, that is another article. However, this is to say, that, the Aranha family has suffered two very big and sad emotional blows in the canine side of their family over the past 18 months.

The Joy of Cats - Jun 2, 2007 - 5:57:43 PM
If you are a cat owner you are amongst millions of confirmed cat lovers in the world. Cats are very fascinating animals and often make you beg for any attention what so ever. These marvelous felines have a streak of independence that fascinates and challenges their humans. This, however, must not be translated into the fact that they require less attention than their canine counterparts. Different attentions are required for different animals...

Three animal fundraising events in one month! - May 28, 2007 - 7:43:41 PM
Wow, what a month May was for the animals! New Providence had a total of three events to fund raise for our less fortunate friends in the space of one month. I think that must be a first in Bahamian animal “History”...

Turtles in da back yard - May 22, 2007 - 12:26:46 PM
A few years back my youngest son announced that he wanted a pair of “little” turtles more than anything in the world. His big brother willingly obliged, and as a birthday present two splendid little turtles joined the family. They really were very small and fragile. They came in a bright blue “lagoon” bowl with an island in the middle with a ramp and a removable palm tree. I knew absolutely NOTHING about these creatures except what I had learnt from the movie “Finding Nemo”...

Summer Precautions - May 16, 2007 - 6:11:53 PM
In the past few days it has become very apparent that summer is fast approaching. Just a look around the garden at the end of the day, the parched grass, and the wilting leaves on the plants in your pots, is enough to indicate that the high temperatures are just around the corner.  So, what about your four footed friends, who are destined, by nature, to sport a fur coat all year round?
