Hi I'm a Service Dog, my name is Barbie

Hi I'm Barbie,

I am a service Dog, follow me and my blog. I help my human, she has troubles
with emotions, I am emotional support. My other human friend is my trainer
and handler, his name is Bob. He takes me on long walks, teaches me important
things like sitting respectfully and listening. He taught me how to sit and give my paw in greetings.
I like to meet people. I especially like to go to Senior Homes, hospitals and public places. Follow my blog, I will travel with my trainer to many places, meet humans, as I make them smile and bring a cheery gift in the form of my gentle
affection. I will post photo's and video's

Emotional Support Therapy Service Dog

A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.

 Jim Morrison.

Barbie is a Emotional Support Therapy Service Dog, she has outstanding traits for knowing when people have extreme feelings, high anxiety, depression, feelings of loss, PTSD, feelings of emptiness and the list goes on.

Can dogs really feel it all?
Dogs can feel, too. They can feel when something is wrong, or when they need to jump in for a cuddle. Yet, when it comes to us reacting to their emotions, things get complicated. Why? Well, for starters, dogs have their own way of expressing emotion, and sometimes it’s not only ignored but mistaken for misbehaving.

New owners tend to mistake it for anxiety symptoms, or simply lack training, but believe us when we say that certain behavior patterns when isolated lets you know…

Letting Go of Stress and Tension

“Letting go helps us to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us. This frees us from unnecessary stress.” – Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go

Today we have a really beautiful meditation that is meant to help you let go of the stress and tension from your body, leaving you feeling, calm, peaceful and deeply relaxed.

Before you begin, remember to first, find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for the next 9 minutes. Second, find a comfortable position to sit – it can be in a chair, crossed legged or on your knees, or lay down and when you’re ready, press play.

Positive Attitude

Positivity And Performance

Keeping a positive attitude isn’t just good for your health. Martin Seligman has also studied the connection between positivity and performance. In one study in particular, he measured the degree to which insurance salespeople were optimistic or pessimistic in their work. Optimistic salespeople sold 37% more policies than pessimists, who were twice as likely to leave the company during their first year of employment.

Seligman has studied positivity more than anyone, and he believes in the ability to turn pessimistic thoughts and tendencies around with simple effort and know-how. But Seligman doesn’t just believe this. His research shows that people can transform a tendency toward pessimistic thinking into positive thinking through simple techniques that create lasting changes in behavior long after they are discovered.

Here are three things that I’ll be doing this year to stay positive.

Healthy ways to get your ice cream fix

Sometimes you really need that little treat at the end of a long day.

The great thing about creating your own homemade ice cream is you get to see exactly what is going into your dessert. Want to cut some calories? Swap in Splenda instead of sugar. Prefer to consume less fat? Choose a lighter cream as your base. Plus, making it yourself means you don’t have to worry about added preservatives or artificial flavoring. You can guarantee all-natural goodness when you opt for making your dessert yourself.

Avoid the fats and calories of cream-based desserts with sorbet. It’s made with water and fruit flavors rather than dairy, so it won’t destroy your diet. Chapman’s sorbets are a mere 80 calories per serving and come in delicious flavors, such as raspberry and orange. They even offer a “rainbow” option so you can have every flavor you’re in the mood for. You get the cold, smooth feeling of ice cream without undoing all that work…
