Today is International German Shepherd Dog Day!

German Shepherd Dog Day was created to honor and celebrate the noble German Shepherd breed, which is often described as an embodiment of love and loyalty. They are remarkable creatures.  Our German Shepherd Dog is named Tonka.  She is very smart, extremely tuned in to her people, amazingly athletic, and has a huge personality.  She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She wants to be friends with all people and other animals, and is both exuberant and gentle with all.  Tonka is playful, laugh out loud funny, and she loves to sing along when the music is on. She makes life better for her people!

Worldwide Parental Alienation Awareness Day is April 25th!

Please learn about this terrible form of child abuse and STAND UP to save the children.

The kids are used as pawns in a sick narcissistic game of control and hate, and are helpless to the manipulation. They lose the Joy and Love that they once lived and a destructive cognitive dissonance results that holds them hostage to their abuser.  It is real … Please learn about it.

There exists many resources for understanding, here are a few:



Quote from a Disconnected Alienated Child:

“I act like I don’t care, but deep inside, it really hurts.  I feel angry, sad and confused. I shut down to disconnect or to protect myself.

I DO love you, but I am not allowed to show it. I don’t know if I own these thoughts, memories and feelings.  I push you away because I go where there is least pressure.  Seeing you, speaking with you or even talking about you in a positive way brings unbearable pressure from my mom.

I need you to understand how difficult this is for me.

Please keep showing me love and kindness even if I don’t respond.

Stay calm and please don’t react when I am in turmoil.

This will help me get through.”
