Why FreshAir?
Learn about FreshAir Surround


Have you ever thought about what's really polluting your home environment? Little ones bring the day's germs home with them and spread them everywhere. Garbage cans are funky. The smell of leftover spicy food can linger for days. And who knows what surprises our pets bring in with them.

Now imagine eliminating that pollution at the source. We're not talking about spraying a cloud of flower-fragranced chemicals. Our solution is as easy as pushing a button to keep things cleaner and safer to touch, not to mention smelling fresher. The FreshAir Surround by Vollara is a revolutionary air purifier that does so much more than clean the air. Using the same science as nature, FreshAir Surround destroys odors, eliminates smoke and reduces harmful contaminants ordinary cleaning can leave behind.

So how does the FreshAir Surround clean and freshen the air? In short, it is technology based on how nature keeps things safe and clean outdoors. The natural processes found in thunderstorms, sunlight, and lightning are re-created indoors. Negatively charged ions remove pollutants from the air. ActivePure Technology duplicates nature to safely reduce contaminants on surfaces.

FreshAir Surround by Vollara is like 24/7 healthy home insurance. It is the core of Vollara's total protection for whole-home environmental conditioning. FreshAir is always working - sending out an active army of safe and natural ions as well as pollutant-controlling, odor reducing and oxygen-rich 'scrubbers' to make your home safer and healthier.

Benefits of FreshAir Surround

  • Removes airborne contaminants and allergens - reducing asthma and allergy symptoms for a healthier body
  • Freshens air and removes odors in otherwise stale-prone environments
  • Removes dirt and dust from the air to make cleaning easier
  • Optional Ozone Free bulb allows for operation without creating ozone
 
 
Hi!  I am Susan from the "Emerald City" in Washington and I want to tell you about Life's Abundance healthy dog and cat food!

 I am excited to share with you today the life giving benefits of Life's Abundance products.  These products have added years of quality life to my two older Golden Retrievers who have been eating this delicious, healthy food for a year and a half.  They also use the Wellness Supplement and Agility formula which has kept them moving freely despite a propensity to an arthritic condition in one of my dogs. 
 As a pet lover, I saw the importance of partnering with a company like Life's Abundance.  I am part of a BNI (Business Networking) group in Washington state and my many customers smiles seem to grow bigger as their pets experience quality of life and health benefits from Life's Abundance.  You can order, too, by going to www.emeraldcitypetsupply.com to bring life and health to your cat or dog.

Do you think your dogs should be allowed to roam free or should they be kept in a fenced area or on a leash?

Some of our dogs....
We live in the country.  My closest neighbor is a mile away.  We raise a limited number of Miniature Australian Shepherd puppies to place into their forever homes.  We have 9 dogs but we used to have 10.  They are part of our family.  

We live near a dirt road and although there is not much traffic, many of the cars that pass drive WAY too fast.  It is for that reason and others that I have chosen to keep our dogs safe and only let them out when someone is with them.

Living in the country, in Texas has been interesting.... to say the least.  People who are not breeders, leave their dogs intact.  They let them roam loose, without supervision.  They do not seem to regard these animals as their best friend but simply an ornament to adorn their yard so that they may pat it occasionally should the urge arise.
I am going to share three stories, the stories I am about to tell are true.  The names have been changed to protect the innocent.  
Story #1.  My story.  As I mentioned before, we had 10 dogs.  The one that you do not see pictured above is Anna.  Anna was my favorite.  In fact, any of you who have seen our business card or logo for our Natural Pet Health Food have seen her picture.  She was a stunning Australian Shepherd with dark merle coloring and two blue eyes.  She loved being with me and did not especially care for playing with the other dogs.  You could say, she was my shadow.
Picture
Anna
One day, we let her out to use the restroom.  Now as I shared with you before, we make sure that we are out with them when they are out.  Our yard is not fenced and we do not want to lose our dogs.  My son, still in his pajamas, went into his room to get dressed.  I was sitting at my desk in the office, on the computer, looking out the window, wondering why there seemed to be less traffic than normal.  I realized it was Good Friday. "It must be people have gone out of town for the holiday," I thought to myself.  I got up to make some coffee and walked into the kitchen.  About that time, a neighbor pulled slowly into our driveway and honked.  I quickly threw some pants on and my son met me at the back door as we went to see what the neighbor needed.  He said, "your black dog is in the road."  I heard his words but couldn't think.  What did he mean?  What black dog?  I thought of Patsy and Lady Day, they are black dogs...but how did they get out and why would they be in the road.  Then I realized what he was saying, Anna, was dead, in the road.
Just a brief period in time.  I never saw a vehicle pass our house, it must have happened between the time I got up from my desk to walk to the kitchen.
Someone, I still do not know who, plowed over my poor, dear Anna and kept right on driving.
The neighbor, Mr. G helped me get her back to the house.  I was so devastated!

Story #2. A continuation of #1.  My son stated digging her grave.  The soil in our parts is nicknamed black gumbo for its dark, rock hard, clay consistency.  After quite some time, he had only managed to dig a few inches.  This was not going to work.  I called on another neighbor, Mrs. H, and she and her sons said they would come and help.  As she was driving to our house, there were two Pitbull Terriers in the middle of the road.  Mrs. H slowed to a stop and saw a lady in her yard, planting her garden.  She rolled down her window and called out to the lady, "Hi!  Can you please call your dogs?"  The lady, hands covered in dirt, looked up and replied, " if they are dumb enough to be in the road, run them down."  Horrified, Mrs. H, who was on her way to help me and my son told the lady, "NO, that is not right.  You call your dogs."  The lady did so.  I am not sure if she grumbled the whole way about it, all I know is that I was SHOCKED to hear this story as was Mrs. H to experience it.

Her boys saved the day with three teenage boys equipped with shovels, they were able to conquer the rock hard soil.  We wrapped Anna in a sheet and placed her into her final resting place.  She was a good girl.
Story #3.  The chicken lady and dogs gone bad.  I have a neighbor that we'll call the chicken lady and a mile past her, the cowgirl.  
Picture
The Chicken Lady and Dogs Gone Bad
One day, the chicken lady was tending to her small flock of 6 chickens.  These chickens are her pets, they also provide fresh eggs daily for her family.  She brings them into her home at night and they stay in a box in her laundry room.  During the day, she takes them out to their coop that is enclosed with chicken wire for them to walk around and get exercise. Every late afternoon, the chicken lady lets her chickens out of their enclosure to snack on bugs in the field.  She had gone into the house to get some tea so she could come and relax and keep an eye on her beloved cluckers.  She had just turned her back and started pouring her tea when she heard a horrible ruckus coming from outside.  She ran out the back door to find two dogs in her yard, one with her favorite chicken in it's mouth.  She proceeded to scream at the dog and get quite hysterical.  The dog dropped the chicken and wagged it's tail at her looking for a pat.  She picked up the chicken that convulsed and died in her arms.  It's neck was broken.
She proceeded to call the cowgirl, who owned the dogs.  After telling her story, the cowgirl replied "I don't have a solution, just shoot 'em."
So you are probably wondering... what is the point of these stories?  Why are you telling us this?
I'm writing this as a way to help pet owners take personal responsibility for their pets.  We also heard the news of 3 of our puppies that we had placed getting killed.  Two by hit and run drivers and one by coyote attack.  These families were horrified at their loss, heartbroken.  I would like to share some methods to help this not happen in the future.

Sport & his boy
1. Get your dog trained.  In particular for recall, sit, and stay.  This means when you call your dog, it stops everything it's doing and immediately comes to you.  

Lack of training is one of the top 10 reasons a pet will end up in a shelter.  As a breeder, it is my job to educate my clients on how to properly care for their pet.  In fact, we insist on first right of refusal should our clients be unable to care for their pet.  We will find a new home for them.

Sport graduated with honors from his puppy class.  Is going for continued classes and learning so much!  His boy is having a BLAST with his BEST FRIEND!

2. Socialize your dog.  Believe it or not, this can help to establish boundaries.  
It sets the tone for your relationship with your pet and how the pet should or should not act around others.  This relationship is important in building the bond for your pet, keeping him close.
Your dog is part of your family and should be treated as such.  They are like a small child.  Most would not leave their 3 year old alone in an unfenced yard without any supervision, so do not leave your dog unsupervised.

Picture
Sport, just got neutered!
3. Spay or Neuter your pets. This will help your pets stay close and not get the "call of the wild." 
This helps keep down the population of "unwanted" animals that end up in shelters.  Another top reason for animals ending up in shelters is when they have a "whoops" litter of mutt puppies.  
Sterilizing your pet also improves their health and decreases the chance of testicular and ovarian cancer.  So do this for their health!

4. Finally, respect others. Be a good neighbor. You do not want your dog trespassing on other people's property or making them uncomfortable. If you see other dogs, be sure your dog is on a leash or in a safe area.  Don't let your dog jump up on people, chase cars, etc. Pick up poop when your dog goes.  That means, carry a poop bag with you when you go for a walk.  Build a fence, buy a kennel, keep your dog on a leash. Use common sense.

NEW!!!!! 
We are VERY excited to announced the Life's Abundance Large Breed Puppy Food Is Here!!!

Emerging science has shown that large breed puppies have slightly different nutritional needs than their smaller breed counterparts. To help your big bundle of joy grow and thrive, choose Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food For Large Breed Puppies. This advanced health food contains the same nutrients found in our flagship formula, plus a precise balance of protein, calories, calcium and phosphorus to encourage healthy, controlled growth rates and strong teeth and bones.

Big bundles of joy, large breeds have so much to offer. They’re intelligent, playful, affectionate and loyal. The bonding is almost instantaneous and the new arrival becomes part of the family. And, just like any other family member, making sure your puppy starts on the path to a long, healthy life from day one is imperative. Feeding a food formulated to meet your large breed’s specific needs is vital to your puppy’s well-being.

Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food For Large Breed Puppiescontains a precise balance of protein, calories, calcium and phosphorus to encourage healthy, controlled growth rates and aid in the development of strong teeth and bones.The Ingredients in this food were carefully chosen for their individual nutrients, which work together to provide a comprehensive and perfectly balanced meal to help your puppy grow and thrive.

We cultivate long-term relationships with our suppliers to make sure we obtain the highest quality ingredients and we've made it our mission to provide companion animals with exactly what they need to help ensure a lifetime of good health.

Proprietary Blend of Vitamins and Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are essential for life and play hundreds of vital roles in the body including helping cells and organs function properly. That is why at Life’s Abundance, we use a special blend of vitamins and minerals and we go beyond the minimum requirements when it comes to adding these important micronutrients to our premium health food for large breed puppies.

High-Quality Protein

Protein builds, maintains and replaces tissues in the body. Muscles, organs and the immune system are made primarily of protein. However, not all proteins are created equal. At Life’s Abundance, we use only high-quality proteins in our premium health foods. Chicken meal is the first ingredient but we’ve also included four additional wholesome and nutritious proteins.

An Antioxidant System

A puppy’s body is designed to create only a certain amount of antioxidants on its own. That is why we cannot over-emphasize the importance of antioxidants. Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food For Large Breed Puppies contains an antioxidant system including guaranteed amounts of vitamins C and E. Prebiotic and Probiotics Prebiotic fiber and guaranteed probiotics are featured ingredients in this formula. Prebiotics are considered “food” for probiotics. They help them thrive and stay healthy in the body. And while other brands may claim probiotic content, at Life’s Abundance there’s zero guesswork because we guarantee the amounts of four different probiotics on the label.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The benefits of dietary fatty acids are well known, as omega-3s are some of the most extensively researched, naturally occurring nutritional ingredients in the world. The guaranteed amount of omega-3s is perfectly balanced with the omega-6 fatty acids in this formula to support healthy skin, shiny coats and overall wellness.

DHA (Dochosahexinoic Acid)

This premium puppy health food is enriched with DHA, a vital nutrient derived from the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil. DHA promotes healthy eye and brain development, which is so important for growing puppies.

No Questionable Ingredients

We don’t use artificial flavors or colors. Additionally, we never use corn or wheat – or glutens derived from these sources – in Life’s Abundance foods, treats or supplements. These ingredients are generally used as inexpensive sources of protein, and the grains are susceptible to toxic mold contamination. We refuse to use these ingredients because there’s no excuse for risking the health of your puppy.

Country of Origin: The Afghan Hound (also known as a “Tazi' or “Baluchi Hound”, formerly “Persian Greyhound”) is an ancient breed which dates back to the age of the Pharaohs, but its modern development occurred mostly in Afghanistan. The Afghan Hound was bred by nomadic tribes to hunt gazelles, foxes, and rabbits in harsh mountain terrain, leading to a nimble body, notable jumping ability, and long coat for protection from the cold. For centuries, the Afghan Hound was isolated in the mountains of Afghanistan, with locals reluctant to sell the breed to foreigners. Only in the 20th century was the breed finally brought to England, and later America, where it became a popular show dog and developed a somewhat glamorous reputation. In 2005, an Afghan Hound named Snuppy became the first cloned dog in history. A fictional Afghan Hound named What-A-Mess is the star of a popular series of children’s books and cartoons.

Size: The Afghan Hound has a tall shoulder height of 61-73 cm (24-29 in) and weighs 20-27 kg (45-60 lbs). It has a long, narrow head, almond shaped eyes, large, drooping ears, and big feet. The Afghan Hound has a distinctive ring at the end of its tail and markedly high hipbones.

Coat: The Afghan Hound has a coat of very long, fine, silky hair. The long coat and shorter-haired saddle on the back are distinctive features of this breed. The coat may be of any color, with or without a black face mask, but white markings are discouraged, especially on the head. A white Afghan Hound with patches of red or black may indicate impure breeding.

Character: The Afghan Hound is calm indoors, but fast and active outdoors, eager to chase small game. It is very proud, noble and intelligent. Afghan Hounds are at home in the show ring. They are sometimes compared to cats in that they are affectionate yet standoffish, and may not come when called.

Temperament: The Afghan Hound is kind and loyal, but is sensitive and needs to be treated with care, particularly by the young. Afghan Hounds are normally tolerant of children, but older and well behaved children are preferable. Afghan Hounds get along very well with other pets with whom they are raised, but males are often dominant toward one another.

Care: The Afghan Hound must be groomed very carefully for one full hour, twice a week; special instruments may be required. The coat should never be trimmed. Afghan Hounds should also be bathed and have ear passages cleaned weekly. The Afghan Hound should be given a soft bed, and prefers to live indoors with access to the outside. The Afghan Hound has a low pain tolerance. Like other sighthounds, the Afghan Hound is sensitive to anesthesia. Afghan Hounds have litters of 6-8 and a life span of 11-13 years.

Training: The Afghan Hound is independent, making training somewhat of a challenge. It should be trained firmly but kindly. No Afghan Hound is ever completely obedient, but without proper training it can become destructive.

Activity: The Afghan Hound needs plenty of exercise. In order to burn off energy, it must be walked daily or given an enclosed area in which to run—preferably both. Apartment life is not recommended. Provide plenty of water when exercising to prevent overheating.
