Meds for Pets

It is never easy to have a pet. Ownership requires a certain level of  responsibility. Very similar to taking care of a small child, pets need lots of attention. At a certain age, they can  not  be left on their own. Moreover, pets must have  food, good training, essential grooming, not to mention play and exercise. 

Pet food must be healthy to avoid excess weight -  which could be bad for the heart. Play is  necessary to ensure that the pet gets enough exercise to provide balance. As an owner, your pet would need you to walk him, or feed him and where applicable, bring him to the veterinarian periodically to make sure  that the pet is always in tip top condition.

Of course, it is quite normal for pets to feel unwell sometimes. Even humans get out of sync from time to time. For pet dogs, annoying fleas, allergies, urinary infections, even arthritis, must be addressed and you would definitely need  your petmeds at vetdepot.

If you don't have a dog, you can probably get a cat. And if you can afford it,  a horse. Otherwise, it would not be bad at all to take care of a fish. Why not?

Last but not least,  love your pets.. that is the most essential part of  getting a pet. You might be surprised, how fulfilling it is to take care of something which can give you enormous happiness.

Ibanag and Filipino Childbirth Rituals

"For parents, birth rituals and ceremonies provide an immediate sense of connection as well as inclusion of the child into the clan, tribe or community. These rituals establish at a very early stage, who they are. The rituals also serve as guideposts as they grow and develop their own sense of identity. Even if they drift away from or reject their heritage, their early experiences give them a place to return to if they so choose".

The Ibanag culture is filled with childbearing rituals and practices which have been handed down from one generation to another. Here are some of them.

1. It is said that if a pregnant woman has a lot of blemishes or pimples on her face, her baby will be a girl.
2. If the mother glows and radiates beauty, the baby will be a boy.
3. If the mother craves for sweets and other carbohydrates, the baby will be a girl.
4. If the mother is craving for oily or fried foods, the baby will be a boy.
5. The mother should not eat 'balut' (a native duck egg d…


Learn the Ibanag dialect?

As I mentioned in one of my prior posts somewhere in one of my blogs, the Ibanag dialect is somewhat difficult to learn because when you speak it you can sound like a chirping bird :-)

I learned the dialect by just hearing it from my Mother who use it everytime her relatives come to our home to visit. And this was not that often. You see, her relatives from Isabela, that's where she was born, come to spend their vacation with us every summer, yes the whole summer months. And yes, EVERY summer of EVERY year. Well, they don't come empty handed. They bring sacks of rice, ample stocks of meat enough to feed all of us for 1 month. They bring live animals too, like chicken, piglets, not to mention baskets of fruits and vegetables, even our neighbors get their share.

Wherever Ibanags are, you know they are around because they are so loud and so noisy. They have this habit of speaking all at the same time :-)Sigh. Now if that is not enough reason for anyone to learn the dialect, I …
