Toy Dog Breeds: Man’s Best Friend

Dogs are indeed cute and cuddly. They also serve as man’s best friends. Nowadays, different dogs are making a scene everywhere. It is even a form of fashion for some celebrities.

A toy dog is actually a petite dog which is quite small when compared to working dogs. It is safe to determine toy dogs by their size although it is quite confusing since there is still no guaranteed facts which state that height and weight is considered in classifying a dog as a toy.

Some of the toy breeds are Pomeranian, Pug, Shih Tzu, Poodle, Papillion and the likes. These toy dogs are beautiful and charming and they also represent an important role in people’s lives. Although they are small, they also have the capability to hunt and eliminate pest animals.

Some of these toy dogs also serve as man’s guardians. They also bark at people whom they are not familiar with. They can be as tough as the other large dogs.

The most fascinating thing about toys dogs is their affective capability wherein they can fill the needs of sad and lonely individuals and the adults. They are also known for helping those that are in depressed state of mind through manifesting care and of course happiness. They also have impetuous instincts which help in providing all the friendship and as well as affection, and in turn gives new meaning to people’s lives.

A legend states that when a noble Aztec was about to die, a Chihuahua is used as a sacrifice to transmigrate the sins of the noble man to the sacrificed dog, which in turn avoids the noble man from divine punishment. The Chinese religion, which is Buddhism, has a lion symbol meaning a sacred nation. They used the Pekinese dog to represent as lions because they have no lions back then and the Pekinese dogs have the closest resemblance to it.

There are lots of breeders of the toy dogs who keep their cute puppies for about ten to twelve weeks old rather selling or distributing them at about eight to nine weeks. They also consider the family before selling it. More often than not, they will not sell it to family with too many kids and even to those who has hyper active child.

Generally, toy dogs are very easy to take care of. There are some who needs heavy grooming such as the Shih-Tzu, Terrier and Pomeranian. The Toy Poodle, Japanese Chin and Toy Spaniel on the other hand require only a moderate grooming. While other toy dogs do not require any grooming at all.

The basic and most important thing to remember is to maintain the long and fine hairs free from tangles to prevent pain and other skin problems that your dog may acquire. You don’t want to shell out big bucks of money for veterinary cost in the end, don’t you?

The production of toy dogs is by mass production when compared to larger breeds. Some distributors can just put their little Chihuahuas on a shopping cart or chicken cage and they are easy to deliver when compared to the larger ones like the German shepherd. The downside of buying toy dogs in a pet shop is that most often than not they are quite difficult to house train.

There are some toy dog breeds that are crossbred to other breeds to produce a -poo dog breed. So for those consumers who want to buy a purebred toy dogs, beware of such -poo breeds. They look like the other toy dogs but then they differ in attitude sometimes. Some of these -poo dogs are ill-tempered, hyper and yappy.

Is it possible to train the toy dogs with regards to their attitude? Absolutely, yes! The best way to teach your toy dogs with manners is through obedience commands. You should teach your dog on how to obey such as for example, if he is about to do something bad or any inappropriate act, you should reprimand him with a firm NO!

By doing so, you’re practicing the dog to acquaint himself from knowing what is okay to do from not. Your “no” should always catch his attention. But then remember also to acknowledge the good things that your toy dog will do. A simple saying of “good boy” with a piece of his favorite snack will do the trick.

The Characteristics of a Toy Poodle

All poodle varieties are basically the same and that includes the Toy Poodle. They have the same normal traits such as their gentle and sweet nature, as well as their loyalty to their owners. They are intelligent, non-shedding, elegant and obedient, and very perceptive. They are third in line after the Standard and Miniature poodle.

The Teacup poodle is the only poodle that is smaller than the Toy Poodle. A Toy Poodle can weigh ten pounds at full maturity and the standard poodle is anywhere from twenty to thirty pounds at full maturity. While the Teacup poodle usually weighs no more then four pounds. The Toy Poodle is popular because it is not quite as delicate as the Teacup poodle, but is still quite small and cuddly.

A Toy poodle does not shed. Most dog lovers will tell you that a non-shedding dog is a very pleasant dog to have around. However, all Poodles need a lot of grooming in order to keep them free of tangles. The Toy Poodle will make a great family pet because it is great with children.

Toy Poodles are rather expensive dogs. They are so popular now that a Toy Poodle puppy can run anywhere from eight hundred to one thousand dollars. These dogs are usually carried in designer carriers and can be seen on television quite frequently. They are available in many colors and first originated in France. They are pampered pooches and can be found at many dinner parties and luncheons sitting right next to their owners.

Their roots go back centuries when poodles would entertain in circuses all over Europe. Then it was quite gauche to have a poodle at Court sitting with the King or Queen. These royal families would pamper their poodles in outlandish ways. This was actually the beginning of the personality trait of the pampered poodle. Toy Poodles evolved having the same traits. Toy Poodles are very cute and adorable and are great dogs to have as a first pet. They are very loving and loyal dogs and make great companions for children, as well as adults.

The Toy Poodle is a small dog but is very hearty and strong. They will always want to sit on your lap and sleep in bed with you. Because of their size it is hard to turn down their requests for such cuddling. These dogs are very healthy dogs and any breeder that tries to tell you otherwise should be reported to the American Kennel Club.

When you decide to purchase a Toy Poodle it is a good idea to first read up on the subject of poodles. You will need to ask the breeder specific questions and you must know if he gives you the right answers. An individual who does not have any questions for the breeder will usually not be sold a dog. Breeders are very careful whom they sell their Toy Poodles to. Because these dogs are small they use up their energy quite quickly. They will need small meals throughout the day in order to keep up their energy.

Kidney Disease – A Common Cause of Death Among Toy Poodles

Based on surveys, the leading causes of death among Toy Poodles are old age and kidney disease. Yes kidney disease! While it affects lots of people around the world, kidney disease is also common in dogs such as Toy Poodles.

The kidneys are organs that filter blood to maintain the balance of chemicals, remove the waste products and eliminate them as urine. The kidneys also regulate blood pressure, regulate the production of body fluid and produce hormones that stimulate the production of red blood cells.

Since the kidneys play various roles for the continued health of humans and animals alike, a malfunction in this organ can cause various problems. Canine kidney failure or kidney disease occurs when the kidney ceases to function properly and becomes unable to eliminate harmful wastes from the bloodstream. Kidney disease can either be acute or chronic. Acute kidney failure is an abrupt decline in kidney function that results to poisoning or external toxins. On the other hand, chronic kidney failure is a kidney disease that develops over a period of time.

Increase in water consumption as well as increased urine production are the early clinical signs of kidney failure in dogs. As the disease progresses, more signs can be seen. These includes loss of appetite, depression, vomiting, diarrhea, bad breath and ulcers in the mouth.

To diagnose and determine the disease, urinalysis and blood tests such as blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and blood creatinine are necessary. To treat the disease, large quantities of intravenous fluids are given to flush out the kidneys. This process, called diuresis, helps stimulate the kidney cells to function again. Other initial treatments include drugs to control vomiting and diarrhea, management of blood electrolyte abnormalities and management of anemia.

Diet and nutrition also plays an important role in treating the disease. A low-protein, low-phosphorus and low-sodium diet is advisable to help regulate or slow down the progression of the disease. As much as possible, give diet that is specifically formulated for your dog’s needs. Foods specifically formulated for dogs with kidney disease has a reduced amount of protein, minerals and salt.

Added advice to all dog owners, puppy proof your home before Fido arrives. Make sure that household chemicals even laundry detergents and bleach should be out of your dog’s reach. Regular check up is also advisable especially in adult dogs to detect kidney disease early.

The Tea Cup Poodle Is The Smallest Type Of Poodle

The dogs of the Poodle breed can have different sizes and the kennel associations recognize three basic types of poodles.

Standard Poodles

Most people believe the poodle is a tiny dog, but the puppies of the standard type of poodle can grow up to be quite large adults. According to the standards of the American Kennel Club (AKC), the poodle dogs of the standard type should measure at least fifteen inches in the height of their shoulder, but many of them stand twenty inches or taller.

The dogs of the standard type are loved by many. The poodle dogs of all types are intelligent, friendly, proud, and fiercely loyal pets. Standard poodles, however, carry a heavy genetic burden. The standard variety of the poodle dogs differ to the smaller Poodle types not only through their larger size but also through their shorter average life span,. Around 40% of standard poodles die as the result of some type of cancer, although there is no clear trend as to any one type of cancer that affects this breed.

There is also a high probability for the puppies of the standard type of poodles to be born with Addison’s disease, a hormonal disorder which, if untreated, can lead to cardiac arrest and death. The dogs of the standard type of poodle are also susceptible to hip dysplasia, as other large size dogs are.

Poodle Dogs Of The Miniature Type

According to AKC standards, miniature poodles stand taller than ten inches at the shoulder, but no taller than fifteen inches

The miniature poodles don’t need large yards to play in, so they are suitable for apartment dwellers. They are known for barking when nervous, and therefore makes a fine watchdog.

As all the types of poodles, the miniature type dogs get along well with other dogs and with humans of all ages. They live more than the standard poodles, their average life span being around fifteen years. Like the standard poodle, the miniature type dogs are prone to genetic health problems, like epilepsy or seizure disorder, eye diseases leading to blindness and knee problems.

Toy Poodles

The smallest of the breed are the toy poodles standing ten inches tall or less at the shoulder. There are even smaller varieties, such as the so called tea cup poodle. The longest lived of the types, toy poodles can live for up to eighteen years.

The Coats Of The Dogs

The dogs of the poodle breed can present two types of coats. The most common show poodles have curly coats.

Their coats can also be corded, which produces a look not unlike dreadlocks on humans. Poodles having corded coats are not known in the United States.

The Colors Of The Coats

These dogs are usually black or white, but you can also see brown, apricot, silver, beige, cream, blue, and even red poodles. For show dogs, only uniform colors are admitted.

Poodles are a large variety of intelligent and friendly dogs, having different sizes and colors. With so many choices, it should be easy for you to find the right pet.

Understanding Laser Marking and Laser Etching Systems

Laser marking and laser etching are becoming more and more important in a growing number of industries. The basic reasons to laser marking or laser etch your products include:

o The mark is extremely durable, permanent and in most cases cannot be removed without destroying the product itself, this is true for laser marking, laser etching, or laser annealing.

o The laser marking process is accurate, 100% repeatable, fast, with very clear sharp results.

o The laser mark or laser etch can quickly and easily be changed without any machine change over, and, without replacing any tools. The changing of a laser marking or laser etch is a simple drag and click computer operation.

o The laser requires no consumables and no additional purchases of added materials or supplies. Therefore the operating and maintenance costs of owning and running the laser marking or laser etching system are virtually non existent.

Laser Basics

The word laser is an acronym for light amplification by simulated emission of radiation. The laser beam is formed in a sealed tube with an electrode set, laser gas, and electrical discharge. The beam is emitted into a telescope which expands the laser beam from a size of approximately 2mm as the beam exits the laser tube up to 7mm to 14 mm for most laser marking or laser etching operations. The expanded beam is directed into a laser head containing two mirrors located on high speed galvo motors. The laser beam is directed off the mirrors though a single element flat field lens to the product being laser marked or etched.

Typically the laser marking or laser etching fields created range in size from 65mm x 65mm [2.5" x 2.5"] at the smallest size to 356mm x 356mm [14.0" x14.0"] square at the largest. The next consideration is the laser beam spot size. This is the size of the focused laser light energy at the laser marking or laser etching point on the product and can vary from approximately 200 micron [micrometers] or .0078″ at the smallest to approximately 540 microns or .021″ for Co2 lasers. The laser beam spot size ranges from approximately 20 microns or .0007″ at the smallest to approximately 70 microns or .0027″ at the largest for Nd:YAG lasers. These small spot sizes and highly focused laser light energy create the detailed, clear, permanent marking that is typical of the laser marking or laser etching process.

Controlling Lasers and Laser Marking Options

Laser markers and laser etchers are controlled via software. Several variables need to be controlled:

1. Laser power as measured in watts

2. Frequency, meaning the pulse frequency of the laser beam

3. Inches per second, meaning the speed that the beam steering mirrors are moving

Determining the correct setting for the laser is the single most important and critical element in the success or failure of the laser marking process. Once the proper settings have been determined and demonstrated a 100% repeatable laser mark can be achieved.

Laser controller software is accessed via a PCI interface card. This sends the digital signals of the computer based marking or etching files to the motors and directs the laser beam to the product being laser marked or laser etched.

There are several different types of laser marking and laser etching and several different considerations in terms of visual results for the laser mark or laser etch.

1. Laser etching produces a visible etching or depression into the material. Laser etching replaces traditional process like mechanical press or pin scribing. Laser etching can be done with either a Co2 or YAG laser on virtually any material surface and to any depth from very light etching to very deep etching. For example, laser etching is used to engrave serial numbers into metal gun frames. Generally speaking with laser etching the material being laser etched is vaporized at the laser etching point due to the typically high power densities of the laser beam at the point of laser etching.

2. Laser marking produces a surface mark with very little engraving and very little disruption of the material surface. This is especially useful in certain industries such as discrete electric components, semi-conductor, electrical fuse, and ceramics where laser etching can actually damage part or change the conductive qualities of the part. Generally in order to produce the laser mark without deep engraving a high speed per inch setting for the galvo head is used.

3. Laser etching and laser marking generally do not produce any color changes and create a colorless impression. There are exceptions as certain plastics will sometimes react to and change color under either Co2 or YAG laser light. Also, in some cases, additives can be incorporate into the materials being laser marked or laser etched in order to produce a color change. Another exception occurs when the wavelength of either the Co2 or YAG laser is changed from those typically used in laser etching and laser marking. This can produce a color change after laser etching on some materials.

4. Laser annealing is another popular form of laser marking. This type of laser marking is generally undertaken with a YAG laser on metal surfaces using lower power, high frequency and slow writing speeds to produce heat on the surface of the product. Laser annealing can be used to replace electro chemical etching and ink marking as the laser annealing process creates a black mark with no etching. Care must be used, as the heat generated can cause iron in some metals to be pulled to the surface, and rust can result if the parts are subjected to sterilization after laser annealing. This can be an especially difficult issue for medical devices

5. Laser ablation is also a popular use for laser marking systems. In this case the laser is used to remove a layer of paint, anodized or some other material covering the surface of the part. For example this process is used to create bear metal contact points on a painted part, to allow battery connection as in cell phones, or to remove paint for identification of parts and manufacturer details.

High Power Laser Pointer & Portable Laser Applications

“A solution looking for a problem” – Charles H. Townes on the application of lasers.

Since lasers were developed, they have had numerous applications in a number of diverse fields. Listed here are just some of the application for high power laser pointers and portable lasers.

Astronomy

With a brilliant beam stretching for miles into the night sky, high power green and red laser pointers are excellent tools for astronomy. Easy and quick identification and pin pointing stars and other celestial bodies. No need for difficulties, frustration or wasted time pointing with your finger or trying to explain. A laser pointer can be used to identify and pinpoint any object in just a few seconds.

High power portable lasers can also be mounted on telescopes as a visual indicator of where the telescope is pointing. Portable laser is also ideal for mounting on GOTO mounts/telescopes to help direct other people with telescopes and binoculars to an object. With no duty cycle, an on/off switch and very durable construction, a portable laser can be both conveniently and easily mounted on almost any make of telescope and used by hand.

Red light is scattered less by the atmosphere than green light because red light has a longer wave length making green lasers more visible and suitable for astronomy. The light from green lasers also has the advantage of being the wavelength that our eyes are most sensitive to.

Most cheap low powered laser pointers are not effective to be used in astronomy. The beam from these lasers is too weak and easily obscured by ambient light, smog and fog. The beams from high power laser pointers will easily be visible at night in the worst of conditions with the higher powered models even being visible during the day. Perfect for dawn and dusk astronomy.

Photography

Lasers are visually stunning and are used to create very impressive and dynamic photographs. When a camera is used on extended exposure, a high power laser pointer can be used to draw, make pictures and create marvelous visual effects. The proliferation of laser photographs online is a testament to the popularity of lasers and photography.

Lasers and photography is not just limited to lasers pointers and hobbyists. Specialist lasers with short powerful pulses make high speed photography with exposure time of several trillionth of a second possible.

Aiming devices

As a sports person out for some target practice or a soldier on the battlefield, high power laser pointers can help you improve your aim and accuracy. With a range well in excess of 10 miles at night, laser pointers will give you the ability to line up any target in visual range. Even in broad daylight, the green laser dot will be a visible aiming point that can greatly improve accuracy.

Construction/Alignment

On construction and building sites, high power laser pointers and portable lasers are ideal for engineers and site mangers to point out details and features. The laser beam dot is clearly visible in all conditions allowing the quick and efficient identification of features on a site. Effectively saving money through the reduction of wasted time and minimizing errors.

Laser pointers are also used for aligning objects over long distances. High power laser pointers are commonly used by both road construction crews and ground keepers at major sporting venues, world wide.

Avian dispersal

Farmers, airport ground controllers, pet owners and naturalists all use portable lasers as a non lethal method of avian dispersal. Lasers have been instrumental in the reduction of bird strike rates and in effective avian predator management for a number of protected bird species.

Both laser pointers and portable lasers are used by farmers from various countries to supplement their avian dispersal programs. By using our lasers, farmers have been able greatly reduce their cost (rifle or ammunition costs) with zero impact on wildlife and still adhere to local laws for wildlife protection.

Laser shows & entertainment

No rave or dance venue now is complete with out a laser show. The same can be said for any major out door event with the Asian games, Commonwealth games, Afro-Asian games and Olympic games being classic examples.

Both high power laser pointers and portable lasers can also be used with basic optics to create similar light shows on a smaller scale. The shows you can do with lasers range in complexity from a simple star diffraction grating to a more elaborate set ups with galvanometers and dichroic mirrors.

Medical

Lasers in medicine have a wide range of applications range from vision correction and surgery to wound cauterization and the acceleration of soft tissue healing. In brief, the lasers used in are divided into two categories, high power green lasers (3000mW to 10000mW) and low power red and infrared lasers (1mW to 500mW).

High powered lasers are used to cut through tissue and seal/cauterize wounds where as low level lasers are used to treat injuries and promote healing. Though not designed medical use and not to be used with out medical approval, high power laser pointers and portable lasers and infrared laser pointers do in both theory and practice have medical applications.

Non lethal deterrent

Laser pointers and portable lasers are now commonly used by law enforcement agencies and armed forces around the world as a highly effective method of non lethal deterrent. The beam from these lasers can temporarily overwhelm a hostiles visual senses and cause severe disorientation, effectively neutralizing them without resulting in permanent eye damage or the use of force.

Military applications for laser pointers range from painting targets and directing troop movements to warning potential hostiles. Portable lasers are also used by the military to how to warn/deter suspicious or aggressively driven vehicles that approach checkpoints or convoy operations with out using potentially lethal force.

High power laser pointer has been used by a number of coalition force members in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Being durable, field portable and with a beam that can span the largest battlefield, well built high power laser pointers are ideal for the role of non lethal deterrent.

Experiments

Lasers can provide you with hours of fun conducting experiments that provide insights into light, optics, electronics, energy and lots more. Much more beneficial and enjoyable a boring class room or stale text book.

Experiments can range in complexity from some as simple as popping a balloon (heat conduction and reflectivity) to as complicated as bending light (wave propagation).

Camping/Hiking

Laser pointers and portable lasers are great aids for camping and hiking. There is nothing worse than being stuck out in the middle of the bush during the wind and rain and with wet matches and not being able to light a fire. High powered lasers are great for lighting fires. Lasers with a beam that is visible for miles can also be used to signal for help in the event that you are lost or need aid.

Lasers can also provide adequate illumination at night that unlike a normal torch, will not ruin your night vision. High power laser pointer are so light and small, you can hike with them in your pockets and not even notice the weight. The larger laser portable lasers weigh the same as a small flashlight and can easily fit in your back pack. It’s also strong enough to survive the heaviest pounding and roughest trail.

Having Fun

There is nothing like having the coolest high tech gadget with a lethal sky spanning beam to impress your friends. Just imagine the look on their faces when you start popping balloons and lighting matches. Not to mention the attention you’ll get when you use your laser outside at night projecting a bright green/red/blue light that goes for miles. High power laser pointers and portable lasers are definitely not toys but they are a lot of fun.

How to Use Instagram to Market a Real Estate Listing

Instagram’s simple platform and focus on photos makes it the perfect app for real estate agents to share their listings. However, agents who aren’t familiar with the platform may not know what kinds of pictures to post. Simply posting a photo of your listing with the address and a description isn’t going to get much attention. You need to create a story around the listing and share multiple photos to tell that story.

The easiest way to start “Instagramming” your listings is to use Instagram during an open house. Below are 7 different pictures you can take to create and share your open house story.

Start with a selfie

A “selfie” is a photo that you take of yourself. Take a selfie in your car, in front of the sign or by the front door. Caption it with something like “Excited to host an open house at 12345 Main Street.”

Your favorite room

Take a photo of your favorite room in the house. In the caption, get your followers to imagine life in that room. For example, if your favorite room is the bathroom with the huge soaking tub, say something like “Can you imagine coming home from a hard day’s work and getting to soak in this tub? Glorious!”

Your favorite outdoor feature

Photograph your favorite outside space. Again, get your followers to imagine themselves living there. “Check out this built in BBQ. Would you love to host summer BBQs at this home?”

Give a shoutout to other agents

A shoutout is a social media referral. If a real estate agent you know comes by the house with clients, snap a picture with them and give them a shoutout in the caption (be sure to use their Instagram handle if they have one.) Your caption could read something like this “Look who stopped by my open house today! Thanks for bringing your buyers @realestateagent.”

Share your “to-do list.”

Write or type a list of things you need to do to prepare for the open house then post a picture. This gives people an idea of the services you provide when hosting an open house. You can also share the owners to do list to educate people on how they should prepare for an open house.

Tools of the Trade

Do you always bring a specific water bottle to open houses? Do you often bake cookies or bring a vase of flowers? Lay out your items and snap a photo. The caption can read something like “Here’s my open house survival kit!”

Get the owners in on the fun

If the homeowners are around, take a photo with them. Tag them and ask them to share the photo on their Instagram and to tag you!

Instagram is easy to use and the perfect platform for real estate agents who are unfamiliar with social media but want to use it to market their listings. With a few clicks of your smartphone camera and some witty captions, you’re next buyer could be one of your Instagram followers.
