How Dogs Changed Us and How We Changed Them

Dogs are really a big deal nowadays. I remember as a kid seeing dogs tied outdoors with ramshackle dog houses. I always felt bad for dogs left to their own devices except for a few minutes of human interaction during feeding every day. It was wrong for people to do that. Now there are laws prohibiting that kind of treatment.

Nowadays we even have premium dog foods, such as Natures Domain Salmon, to feed our dogs. I remember when there was just plain old canned and dry dog food. Not long before that dogs ate the scraps their people would give them. The history of how dogs moved into our homes and fueled a multi-billion dollar pet product line is an interesting one. No other animal species is as close to us as dogs are.

I know that cat owners would disagree, but the natural temperament of the bulk of domesticated dogs puts them even closer to us than cats. We all know that cats can be extremely friendly and enjoy human companionship. However, cats are largely nocturnal, and they cannot herd animals and do things like rescue and police work. They cannot be trained to detect landmines or armed insurgents and other things dogs excel at learning.

Dogs are the only non-human species that has integrated with human beings on a large scale to work with us, be companions, be protectors and more. They are like family. We treat them like they are our children. We feed them premium foods, and they even share our beds.

Laws are changing to protect them with many areas not permitting keeping dogs outdoors. I know that sled dogs in Alaska are bred for cold climate survival, and they are kept in outdoor areas with doghouse kinds of shelters. However, your average neighborhood dog in the lower forty-eight states needs laws protecting them from owner abuse, and they deserve premium dog food and treats to keep them fed well and healthy.

She is Learning a Lot in Her Tutoring Sessions

The tuition centre at Bukit Timah proved to be extremely beneficial to my son. He was having trouble with one of his classes at school, and we decided that getting him some tutoring help was really the only option to help him. He could remove himself from the class, but that was just covering up the problem temporarily. He would just have to take it again next year with the same teacher, and he would have the same issues then. We are not the type to cover up issues, so we started looking at the options, which is how we found the tutor that helped him so much.

He really has a keen interest in physics, so we were surprised that he was struggling as much as he was. When we tried to find out where the problem was, it was as if we were speaking two different languages. Physics is not a strong suit of ours though, which is why we decided to take him to someone who does speak that language.

I Stay Happy and Have Financial Control in My Life by Working Each Day

As a young wife, I really thought I would enjoy having extra time at home each day before my husband gets home. What I learned was that I had too much idle time on my hands. After discussing it with my husband, I told him that I was going to accept a paid position as a part time helper in Singapore so that I can earn money and keep busy. He was a little unsure about that at first, but he told me he would not stop me. What he has learned since then is that it’s important for your wife to be happy and it makes sense to earn money instead of staying home and getting no pay at all.

We are both in our twenties, and we grew up with families who did things very differently from the other. My mom is very vocal and has always worked. She’s strong, and she knows how to get things done at home and at work without much trouble.
