How To Deal With Stray Dog Menace?? PDF Print E-mail

Are you fed up of the stray dog menace in your area or condo or your posh upscale society? They have become a big threat to your young children. They bark, growl and sometimes even try to bite you. They scare you so much that you have had mini heart attacks as well. Are you continuously living in fear and insecurity. You want all of that to get over. You want to get rid of this important and much talked about issue. Do you?


Let’s talk about a few things on what YOU can do to deal with the stray dogs issue in your locality.

1. Understand that streets are their homes: Their family have lived in the place since your family did. Those streets are their home and when you try to shoo them away, you’re actually trying to conquer their territory. At least, that’s the impression they get from you. What would you do if someone tries to throw you out of your house? Fight. Right? This is what they would do. So, in case, you want them to behave as calm and lovable dogs, mend your own ways.

2. Stop scaring them: Most of the times dogs growl at you because they’re scared of you. Maybe you did nothing wrong to them but your scent may remind them of someone else. Dogs live in present, literally. They don’t remember the face of a person who hit them or scare them. The only thing they can remember is either the scent or the fact that they’re scared of any figure that looks like a human. In such a case, show some love to them and they will change.

Stop being a nuisance for them: Whenever a stray dog attacks a kid or a person, the only culprit is the DOG. Why? Just because they can’t justify what they did because of their lack of communication skills, you consider them the problem. Shame on you! They attack when they’re threatened. Ask your kids not to throw stones at them, stop kicking them every time you see them and stop anyone who indulges in such inhumane and stupid activities. If you can’t do that, stop complaining about dog bites.

3. Be a good parent, stop spreading fear: Why are you scared of dogs? Most of the times it is because that’s how you were raised. Most of the times when children try to go near a stray dog, their mothers start shouting like they’re going to touch acid or something. I agree that a child might not know whether it is safe to touch a stray or not but there’s a calmer way to get this thing in your child’s head. You don’t need to make him afraid of dog. If you do, get ready to see your child deal with a constant fear of dogs.

4. Don’t be a racist: I expect many of you who would read this article would be the ‘dog haters’. But if some dog lover is reading this, please don’t be a racist. You shower so much love on your pedigree breed. You love him so much and call yourself a big dog lover but where does all of this go when it comes to stray dogs? Aren’t they dogs? Don’t you find them cute? They deserve equal love and affection as your costly pedigree does. If you can’t love them, just don’t hate them.

5. Feed them: How much food do you throw in dustbin each day? Come on! We all have to deal with leftovers and most of us just throw them in dustbin. If you just use those leftovers to feed those hungry helpless creatures, you would not only do a kind deed but also be protected by them for forever. This is the love of dogs. They always pay their debts.

6. Help them when they’re injured: Most of the stray dogs have to suffer from one injury or another because of the careless ‘humans’. Just because you don’t get convicted for killing a dog doesn’t mean it is okay to kill a dog. In case, you find an injured dog, try to help it. At least, give a call to a dog lover organization like PFA or something. It doesn’t cost much to be a good person. Seriously!

7. Adopt: Do you know that stray dogs are low maintenance dogs with high immunity. They won’t get sick easily, they won’t need an A.C. in summers, they won’t need top quality dog feed. But yes, they would give you equal love, attention and protection as a pedigree would. Why not adopt a stray then?

You have read this and now you know how you can deal with the stray dog problem without killing them or without posing a threat to your own life or to the life of any member of your society. Go on! Try to put some Gyan in the heads of stupid people like the ones I talked of.

Go on! Be a human, not an animal.

Scientists are investigating if living with a dog improves your microbiome PDF Print E-mail

We can't wait to see the results. When you think about it, the idea that dogs are being our best friends in ways they aren't even aware of is pretty special. 


"We essentially want to find out, is a dog acting like yogurt in having a probiotic effect?" said Kelly.
Follow-up evaluations will take place after one, two and three months to look for any positive impacts on gut microflora in either the humans or the dogs. Researchers also will note any changes in the mental health and emotional well-being in both the humans and the animals. The team will try to figure out if the presence of a dog and the sharing of its microbiome actively encourages the growth of more positive micoorganisms in their owners’ guts so significantly that it could have a marked effect on their physical and mental heath.


The volunteers must be strictly 50 years or older, healthy, have not taken antibiotics in the past sixth months, or lived with a dog. This means they’re essentially starting from scratch, so any effects their new dog pals have over the three-month period should be easy to spot. The team chose to work with older participants because research has shown that, in people over 65, a poor microbiome could mean death, so it's important to figure out all the means available to ensure good microbiome health in this age group.


Kelly’s team are now looking for volunteers with dogs to be studied over a three-month period, during which time their gut bacteria, diet, physical activity levels, and immune function will be assessed. Each dog will have its physical activity levels and gut bacteria analysed at the same time. 
There is also epidemiological work showing that when young children and infants are in frequent contact with dogs, they have a reduced risk of developing immune disorders, such as asthma and various types of common allergies, which could also be linked to microbe-sharing.
The hypothesis is based on previous research that has found that dogs and their owners grow to share the same types of gut bacteria after living with each other for some time. Because a healthy population of micoorganisms is essential to physical and mental health, particularly in later life, the team wants to figure out if dogs are unwittingly helping their owners achieve this. 

"We've co-evolved with dogs over the millennia, but nobody really understands what it is about this dog-human relationship that makes us feel good about being around dogs," lead researcher and anthropologist Kim Kelly, from the University of Arizona, said in a press release. "The question is: Has the relationship between dogs and humans gotten under the skin? And we believe it has."
Scientists in the US are recruiting volunteers to help them investigate the health benefits of living with a dog - specifically, are the microorganisms they share with you having a positive effect on your mental and physical health?

 
Animal Lover beaten up for helping dogs PDF Print E-mail

This is to inform you and others on this mailing list that Ayesha Christina (some of you have met her) was brutally assaulted in a place called Signature colony in Mukerjee Nagar when she went to pick up dogs for sterilisation. She has been given the Prahaladpur hospital for sterilisations by the MCD and is doing her utmost. On Saturday night when she presented her credentials to the President RWA he found fault with the letter, her identity, refused to listen to Dr. Dinesh Sharma who told him not to interfere, incited a mob to surround and attack her. Eventually she called the police. The police stood around filming the attack and even advised the group to step back and get the women to attack her instead. So they stepped back while the women clawed her, beat her and pushed her to the ground, stood on her, threw away her shoes, attempted to remove her tee shirt, the men were busy videotaping all this.
Gauri Maulekhi rushed to the spot as did some of us from South Delhi. We were shocked to see the SHO engaged in pleasantries with some of the mobsters outside the gate of his police station, apart from sharing their peanuts and cold drinks.
The ACP arrived and took stock of the situation. Seems he had never heard of the ABC program, or pretended not to have heard of it.
Eventually an FIR was lodged against them under various sections, weak ones, and there is an FIR against her for defending herself. This needs to be redressed immediately.


===========================================================


Hello everyone. I uploaded a post on fb yesterday. I do not know how many of your are my friends on the site, but this is what I said and say to all of you :
Absolutely overwhelmed by the love and support that has poured in since Saturday. Bruised and battered while I may be, my spirit is not lost, my strength is not compromised and my heart is in the right place thanks to every one of you. Let's get 'em!

I will write soon about what we are going to do.

Lots of love !

I'm okay and back to work. what better way to defeat them!

Ayesha
