This Cat And Dog Are Best Friends, And Their Hiking Pics Will Make Your Day – January 19, 2018

Henry and Baloo are the best of friends, and their bond is evident in these adorable photos

 

In 2014, avid hikers Cynthia Bennet and her boyfriend adopted their first dog, Henry. Bennet was interested in finding a golden retriever mix, but then she came across Henry… At just 14 weeks old, he stole her heart. Henry was 5x bigger than the other puppies but quickly proved himself to be a huge cuddle bug. When Bennet sat down, he curled up in her lap, went belly up, then flipped his head over her arm. That’s when she knew he was “the one.”

Bennett told The Dodo: “I think we only had him for three days when we took him on our first hike. He found the steepest, tallest rock around, and he ran up to the top of it to look over the edge.”  That’s when they started calling him their little “mountain goat.”

After a few months, the couple decided their family wasn’t complete. After five months of searching, they rescued a Siamese kitten mix named Baloo. “He ran right up to me,” Bennett said. “And he was the one who played, but he wasn’t the most rowdy.” Just like Henry, he was perfect for them.

When Henry and Baloo were first introduced, it was love at first sight, according to Bennet. Reportedly, all they wanted to do was snuggle up together and play. Before long, both critters started going on hiking trips with their human parents.

“He’s definitely not the kind of cat we can leave home alone on the weekend anymore,” Bennet said, referring to Baloo. “I think he thinks he’s more a dog than anything.”

The hiking enthusiast added,

“I get a lot of questions about how we got him used to it. But he really loves it. He really wants to go outside. “If I touch Henry’s leash, [Baloo] will start screaming at the door.”

10 Breakthrough Lessons I Learned Trying To Heal My Kids From Autism, Anxiety & ADHD – December 5, 2017

 

By practice, I’m a psychotherapist who has been working for over a decade in the world of mainstream medicine, a body of experience that has allowed me to develop a strong understanding of both its strengths and weaknesses.

But beyond my work, I’m also a mom who fiercely loves her children, and for their sake, when it comes to their health I’ve always explored all available options — an approach that I’m proud to say has led me to find better solutions than any conventional specialist had ever offered.

My work has allowed me to cross paths with a seemingly endless number of psychiatrists and general practitioners, who for the most part have one thing in common: They all see medication as the optimal form of treatment for the vast majority of what they diagnose. This includes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, sleep issues, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

For a long time, I wondered about the cavalier prescribing of drugs but bit my tongue. Who was I to question physicians with the benefit of many more years of medical training? My viewpoint changed in 2006 after I had my children who suffered similar challenges.

I knew doctors would recommend medication. I also knew I didn’t want my children to go down that road for fear it would severely damage their lively, beautiful spirits.

As my husband, Steve, and I tried to make do with physical and behavioural therapies, I read many medical journal articles about the link between autism, mental health issues and malnutrition, toxicity, food sensitivities and intestinal permeability, immune, metabolic and digestive issues. These discoveries led us to realize that these disorders could be a real medical illness treatable with natural remedies that didn’t involve intrusive, personality-altering medication. While we were skeptical at first, the potential rewards were so high that these methods outside the mainstream seemed well worth trying. And, I am happy we did!
