Did You Know: Alice In Wonderland Dark Ride (Disneyland)

Did you know, 

On June 14, 1958 came the second attraction based on the movie Alice in Wonderland.  
 
The beginning of the ride a caterpillar takes you up a hill and comes down the hill at the end.  The Alice In Wonderland attraction is actually on the second floor of the building that houses Mr. Toads Wild Ride.  

Curiouser and curiouser, which is one of the reasons I love this ride!

Nutri-Cal

10299_201111210820071525_ma.jpg

I get asked about Nutri Cal a lot, especially on trips or in the vets. So i will explain what it is, when i use it and and how i heard about it.

nutri-cal-4-25-oz-paste-by-vetoquinol-23[1].jpg

WHAT IS IT:

A gel that supplies your pet with extra calories when they need it. Its made up of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats along with many essential vitamins and minerals. Its used for stressed or debilitated dogs, illness, surgery or whelping, aging animals or picky eaters.

WHEN I USE IT:

I make sure i am always in stock with this stuff. I like to use it when we go to the vets, especially when they have to get their shots, when we go on long road trips, or when we go on long walks and hikes(4+ miles). I make sure their sugar stays up. Plus they really do enjoy it when they get it.

HOW I HEARD ABOUT IT:

The breeder i got my pups from suggested it to me, than i talked to my vet and they said it was great for the dogs in the situations i used above. I honestly did a lot of research with it before i got my pups as well.

You can find these pretty much everywhere, Amazon, your vet, pet stores.I hope this helps because i do have it on hand all the time even though i dont give it to them everyday, and my pups are never in stressful situations BUT  like i said it helps to have it on hand just incase. Let me know if you have used it or have ever heard of Nutri Cal, because not many people have.

Mental Stimulation.

 

Here are 5 signs that your pup needs mental stimulation!

img_5307

  1. Cant Relax/Settle

Have you ever noticed that even after a run or a walk your pup still has all this energy? Its because the brain needs some mental exercises as well. So when you hear whining, see pacing or even getting up and down a lot mean they needs something to stimulate their brain, so they can relax and settle down.

2. Destroys Things

If you notice your little one still shredding, biting, ripping or just destroying anything they can get their paws on, you might want to do some “puzzle” exercises. Try hiding a treat under three cups and having your pup find it, or just hiding them around the house, this will help stimulate their little brain and stop their destroying.

3. Tail Chaser

If you notice your pup chasing their tail, try and teach them how to play soccer, get the ball or object into the net, this will help stimulate their puppy brains which will calm them down. (Unless they have a medical issue.)

4. The Barker

Like the Dog Whisperer says, give your dog a job. This will help them with the uncontrollable barking habits they have. Say someone knocks at the door (or rings the doorbell) have them find a spot to lay, to help relax those little brains of theirs. They will start associating the door with that place and it’ll help keep them calm.

5. The Digger

If you are tired of finding unwanted holes in your yard, give your pups a task to do, this is usually a sign of boredom. So you have a couple of options hide treats/toys around the yard, or buy a sandbox and hide special toys in their so they can dig. My favorite is a dog agility, something they can play around with that’ll help work out that mental stimulation.

Some of the things i do to keep my pups mental stimulation going, is teaching them a new trick, playing games with them, or making my own puppy agility. They have a blast and its some great bonding time for us.

The cast for this show is unbelievable, I love A LOT of the cast and think they will be doing a spectacular job with the roles they were given. I mean come on James Monroe Iglehart he is going to slay at his role as Lans Strongbow, along with all the cast. I am really looking forward to watching the show.

There is some controversy with the TV series because at the end of Tangled and the short Tangled Ever After Rapunzel’s hair is short and brown BUT in the TV series her hair is back to long and blonde, I don’t mind either way and Rapunzel is known for her long blonde hair, but what is your theory why they switched her hair back? Let me know i am interested in hearing what you think!
