in Self Help
In Christianity, Jesus spent 40 days in the desert, a situation that was designed to test him. It was a lonely, barren, frightening time, but one from which he emerged a more powerful and wise messiah. The vision quests of the American Indians followed the same protocol and rationale. But in other spiritual practices, a different concept exists entirely--that of finding "shelter", or a refuge. Being in the world, but not of the world. Deliberately pulling away to a private place in which you can develop your spirituality without interference. And we're not talking about going up to a mountaintop in Nepal or hanging out at the ashram. This refuge exists in your mind. How do you do this? How do you get there? What are the benefits to this practice? We'll be talking about finding refuge in tonight's broadcast
If faced with an approaching or developing disaster, what's the best course of action to deal with it?
Do you hunker down and stay in place, or do you evacuate - aka "bug out" in prepper terminology?
A lot depends on what the disaster is, and how it's unfolding.
We'll take a look at some scenarios, including those ripped from this week's headlines.
We're not nearly so enamored with the "bug out" option as others in preparedness circles.
We make our case, share our insights, and welcome your input beginning at one o'clock EDT
Graham Bloem was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and has had an affinity with animals all his life, although his true passion is for dogs. At age five, he immigrated to Toronto, Canada with his family, but enjoyed frequent trips back to South Africa. His experiences in wildlife settings instilled a dream of one day working with animals. From Canada, he immigrated to the United States obtaining US citizenship and he now resides in sunny San Diego, CA with his amazing family (wife Kyrié, two wonderful children, and dogs Lucy and Juno, a Heinz 57-rescue sweetheart and a giant Bernese Mountain Dog).
In 2002 Graham graduated with honors as an Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer (ABCDT).
Over the next ten years, Graham worked as a dog trainer and instructor for a number of shelters, adoption agencies and kennels including his own company West Coast K9. Then, in 2012 Graham started a non-profit “Shelter to Soldier™” (http://specialtydogtraining.com/shelter-to-soldier/), which provides service dogs to military personnel.
The aim is to train service companions for military men and women battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or other psychological or physical ailments from their service in Iraq, Afghanistan or other active areas. In addition, this program will change the lives of many dogs, rescuing them from their uncertain lives in shelters and instilling in them the meaningful opportunity to become lifetime companions for our struggling service men and women.
I'll be discussing the shelter debate, why a shelter pet isn't for everyone, and why it's not ok look down on those who choose not to get their pet from a shelter, and why you need to keep the shelter lecture to yourself.
Also, my feelings on kill vs. no-kill shelters and how they really operate.
Judy is a published short story author and novelist, former psychiatry hospital worker, and has written a book, Shelter Me: When Friendship is All That Remains, about a hot button topic: domestic violence.

Have you ever thought that you can have an impact? What if your actions and your way of being in the world actually changed something? What if being out of judgement was the biggest contribution to the planet possible?
How much of the shelter systems around the world is based on judgement? Judging the pepole that gave up, or neglected their animals. Judging the people for not being fit to adopt. Judging the animals that arrive at the shelter.
What can we be or do to change all of this?
Today host Julie Forbes talks with representatives from the Seattle Animal Shelter and Seattle Animal Control about the importance of pet licensing, why, and what Animal Control officers wishes everyone knew.
Also - the importance of self care and how your own well-being impacts your dog's.

The Able2Survive chat room is now open, and surprise, surprise is populated mostly by E2E people. If you like E2E and are looking a place to chat it may be for you.
Are you looking to add a dog to your life, but going to a shelter would be the last thing you consider? The horror of seeing all the animals there, the adoption process, all of that can make you be turned off to that big time.
Did you know that you can get a shelter dog without going to the shelter? Have you checked what adoption possibilities are in your town? Do you know how many rescue organizations are in your town?
Let's use some tools to change all of this for you and the dog that is looking to be part of your family!
Mango is a 2 yr old girl, overflowing with cuteness and love. She was found on the side of the road in a ditch in Fort Worth, and was picked up by animal control on a random call and dropped at the local city kill shelter.
After being saved by Emma’s Rescue, multiple tests indicated damage that was irreversible. She suffered a fractured back and pelvis, and now depends on a wheelcart to get around. Mango also suffers from incontinence, and has to wear a diaper .
Emma’s Rescue has a program called Emma’s Rescue Reserve, which adopted her out to Judy who is a veteran in Ohio. Together, Judy and Mango are on a mission going to VA hospitals and clinics offering emotional support and inspiration.
Also joining us is Cindy Ritter from the Animal House Shelter in Huntely, IL.a no kill shelter who rescues all breeds of cats and dogs.
