SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight NSDF brings our listeners, present and future, Encouragement. Why is encouragement necessary? Because without feeling positive support in your everyday life, living with seizure disorder can be fatal. Over the years many have come to us on the brink of choosing isolation or worse because they have no encouragement to keep moving ahead and discover the good in thier every day life.
Do you find welcoming encouragement a challenge? Listen in to discover the truth about encouragement.
Tonight and every week ahead, NSDF will present you with pre-recorded podcasts allowing us to burture family while brinign you quality. YOu are encouraged to connect with us in the comments here, across social networks, or through our website http://nsdf.us

Ever wonder why we see the same dogs in rescue over and over? Why does a dog get adopted and returned? Our theory is that the system is designed to fail. Dogs are being picked up as strays and adopted out without any form of rehabilitative training. When they develop "issues" after adoption they are returned to the shelter or strayed again. Then they are once again adopted out (still without benefit of any rehab training) and returned. Some dogs end up being euthanized as "unadoptable" after being returned too many times.
Why are dogs being deemed "unadoptable" when no one has tried to fix their "issues"?
What are the holes in the rescue system, and how would proper rehabilitative training help to plug them?
How and why is the system failing these animals?
On today's show we will be talking with behavioral trainer Chris White owner of K9 Revolution and founder of Biker's Against BSL about these questions, and how proper training keeps dogs in homes.
The phone lines will be open so feel free to call us with your opinion (646)716-6583 or just listen live. All shows are archived so if you can't catch the show live you can listen to it later at your convenience.
AUDIO BOOK READING chp 4 BREAKING THE CHAINS, WM.L.KATZ
Jenny Smith Fletcher was the daughter of W. H. Smith, founder of Nicodemus. She was the first postmistress and schoolteacher in Nicodemus, Kansas. She was also one of the original charter members of the A.M.E. Church.
Formerly enslaved African Americans left Kentucky in organized colonies to experience freedom in the "promised land" of Kansas. Nicodemus represents the involvement of African Americans in the westward expansion and settlement of the Great Plains. It is the oldest and only remaining Black settlement west of the Mississippi River.

AUDIO BOOK READING - BREAKING THE CHAINS, Week 4 Chapter 4 Resistance
Although slave revolts constituted the most dramatic form of slave resistance, they were by no means the only method of reprisal. Arson proved to be an exceptionally effective and consequently frequent form of retaliation. In 1795, slave-set fires in Charleston, South Carolina, prompted the governor to declare a day of fasting. More arson there in 1804 resulted in the destruction of six ships and hundreds of homes. The problem of arson was so widespread that, in 1820, the American Fire Insurance Company of Philadelphia stopped issuing policies in the South.
Assaults and attempts at assassination were also common. In 1740, accusations that slaves were attempting to poison New York City's water supply resulted in widespread arrests and executions. Poison attempts were so frequent they were even referred to in the lyrics of at least one slave song. Vandalism and destruction of crops were also regular occurrences.

Tools of Letting Go
Guardian of the Night K9
Back in 2009 I was a sergeant over the K9 unit which consisted of five handler/dog. (location removed) is about five hours away from (location removed) and the two guys were allowed to drive home on Friday nights to spend time with their families on the weekends. They each were issued a Chevrolet Tahoe to patrol and carry each of their dogs. When they are away from (location removed), their radios don't hit the radio tower, but they can still speak to each other car to car, so long they are in close proximity to each other. One Friday night during the six week school they were driving home when the lead officer said something large and black ran towards the side of his Tahoe from the shoulder/ditch area and he thought it was gonna strike the side of the Tahoe but it suddenly cut sharply and started pacing his unit for a short distance as it ran along side him. He said it was on all fours but was no cow or horse, but was as large as one. He soon outran it, and called on the radio to the officer that was following closely behind him and asked him "what was that?!" the trailing officer replied "I don't know!" and although it was strange they didn't get a good look at it and both laughed it off. They only know for sure that it wasn't a horse or a bull. I asked them how fast they were going and the lead officer said "we were hauling ass trying to get home, 80-85 mph, it was late at night already!" this happened on a deserted stretch of highway between (location removed) and (location removed), lots of deer. Neither officer works for us anymore, but the lead officer is my best friend now and is a sergeant at a nearby agency, the other officer is now a narcotics agent for another nearby agency.
This week on K9SK we are talking with Ashley Rietfors, and she's been surrounded by animals her entire life. She was born and raised in Kailua Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. Her family always had a few dogs when she was really young, and one of them even used to watch over her at the park, while her mom did obedience with the other dogs. Her mom bred Rottweilers and competed in conformation, Schutzhund and obedience with them. In high school Ashley got a horse, and because she hated spending so much time cleaning her stall, she potty trained her to go in a trash can. Her love for animals and training is clearly genetic!
She moved to the mainland when she went to college at Fresno State in California. She was on the Equestrian Team, and even brought her horse to school with her. Eventually she moved to Hollister and began working at Petsmart as a Pet Trainer. She's been with the company for almost 7 years, and love that every day is Bring Your Dog To Work day for her.
She currently have two dogs. Pyro is an almost 5 year old non-striped Dutch Shepherd, and J.A.T.O. a 2.5 year old Belgian Malinois. They compete and train in many different sports: Dock Jumping, IPO, French Ring Sport, obedience, Lure Coursing, Sprint Racing, Tricks, Weight Pull and Barn Hunt. She got Pyro as a pup, as a Schutzhund dog and hoping that he would dock jump. She had no idea that he would excel at it, and take her so many places. Because of him, Ashley has been on so many amazing adventures, and met hundreds of great friends who share her passions. Although his start was slower (the only slow thing about him), J.A.T.O. is now right on Pyro's heels, and only getting better.
