Donkey nannies in Italy.
Each year in Italy, grazing animals are moved from high pastures down to the plains. Newborn lambs are unable to make this journey on their own. Instead, they ride in the pouches of a specially made saddle on the back of a donkey or a mule nanny. They are taken down at rest stops and returned to their mothers for a bite to eat and a bit of nuzzling.

WHY DOGS LIVE LESS THAN HUMAN

Here's the surprising answer of a 6 year old child.

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that dogs' lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said, ”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The six-year-old continued,

”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay for as long as we do.”

Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

• When your loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
• Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
• Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
• Take naps.
• Stretch before rising.
• Run, romp, and play daily.
• Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
• Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
• On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
• On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
• When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
• Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
• Be faithful.
• Never pretend to be something you’re not.
• If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
• When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

That's the secret of happiness that we can learn from a good dog.

Amazing

Mexico’s Oaxacan coast is one of the world’s top five turtle nesting areas. This week if you head to La Escobilla Beach, a short drive from Puerto Escondido, you will find hundreds of Olive Ridley sea turtles nesting. They return to this same beach every year. 🐢

Beautiful. Happy 4th from Lisa, Eileen an Teddy, the Finearf Team

Happy Birthday America!

For us, what makes this country so special is its diversity. After living in NY for 6 years we wanted to create something to celebrate that.

So, we travelled to all 5 boroughs to capture 60 New Yorkers belting out the national anthem.

We’d like to thank all the people that contributed to this piece – it was a pleasure to work with you all.

This gentle filly, named Twin B Sunkissed, is best friends with Bruno the cat. It seems they can't resist a quick cuddle during grooming.

Here’s the good news: You now have time to play with your dog, maybe a cuddle, nap, or a shared meal, things that were just not possible with a busy life.

This virus has slowed us all down. Our dogs are there to keep us company, have conversations with, and let us know we are not alone.

It’s been our aim from the very fist day our doors opened to honor our canine companions, our child that doesn’t talk back, our bed warmer. What a better time to show them how much they mean to you by just hanging together in harmony.

We will not be able to ship for the next few weeks. Any orders we receive will be held, but not charged. The credit card given at the time of order is an authorization only.

Stay safe and have fun hanging with the furry kids.

Wonderful story

Wonderful story

Judy, a purebred pointer, was the mascot of several ships in the Pacific, and was captured by the Japanese in 1942 and taken to a prison camp. There she met Aircraftsman Frank Williams, who shared his small portion of rice with her.

Judy raised morale in the POW camp, and also barked when poisonous snakes, crocodiles or even tigers approached the prisoners. When the prisoners were shipped back to Singapore, she was smuggled out in a rice sack, never whimpering or betraying her presence to the guards.

The next day, that ship was torpedoed. Williams pushed Judy out of a porthole in an attempt to save her life, even though there was a 15-foot drop to the sea. He made his own escape from the ship, but was then recaptured and sent to a new POW camp.

He didn't know if Judy had survived, but soon he began hearing stories about a dog helping drowning men reach pieces of debris after the shipwreck. And when Williams arrived at the new camp, he said: "I couldn’t believe my eyes! As I walked through the gate, a scraggly dog hit me square between the shoulders and knocked me over. I’d never been so glad to see the old girl!"

They spent a year together at that camp in Sumatra. "Judy saved my life in so many ways," said Williams. "But the greatest of all was giving me a reason to live. All I had to do was look into those weary, bloodshot eyes and ask myself: 'What would happen to her if I died?' I had to keep going."

Once hostilities ceased, Judy was then smuggled aboard a troopship heading back to Liverpool. In England, she was awarded the Dickin Medal (the "Victoria Cross" for animals) in May 1946. Her citation reads: "For magnificent courage and endurance in Japanese prison camps, which helped to maintain morale among her fellow prisoners, and also for saving many lives through her intelligence and watchfulness".

At the same time, Frank Williams was awarded the PDSA's White Cross of St. Giles for his devotion to Judy. Frank and Judy spent a year after the war visiting the relatives of English POWs who had not survived, and Frank said that Judy "always provided a comforting presence to the families."

When Judy finally died at the age of 13, Frank spent two months building a granite and marble memorial in her memory, which included a plaque describing her life story.

We looked at each other and laughed. We couldn’t believe it had been 20 years since our first time at the Westminster Dog Show.

In the year 2000, Westminster was completely different set up then the show you see today. As vendors, we were set up was with the benched dogs on the fifth floor of Madison Square Garden. To say the least, it was cramped. The booth was filled with people to the point I couldn't find Eileen!

We always look forward to Westminster every year it just keeps getting better and better. I will say at age 64, I find it more exhausting but while the show is going on, my adrenaline kicks in, and the pure joy from seeing my customers gives me energy I didn’t think was there.

I often think it’s time to close up shop but then February rolls around and all those dogs, their handlers and groomers, and enthusiasts gather together for the 3 days show. Their love of our creations renews my resolve for one more year of making jewelry that honors your love for canines everywhere.

It's been a while since I last introduced myself on here! I'm Lisa, the creator of FineARF! It all started in my NYC apartment over 25 years ago when my passion for jewelry and my love for dogs came together. Still to this day, we continue with our mission to make distinctive, fun, sterling silver jewelry for all people that have fallen in love with their dogs as I have.

Thank you all for the love and support as we continue to expand and grow FineARF!

Lisa and Amber headed out early to Kentucky for the Dog Show. On the road again!
Absolutely LOVE my bracelet and charm I received as a gift from my mother! Beautiful AmStaff charm🐾
Happy Birthday to me!!! ABSOLUTELY love it! Stop by a & check it out tomorrow at the show!! Sherry Louise Pashos post yours too 😊
Hi Lisa! I want a black braided bracelet with that fab barrel closure!!!
So excited to find you, Fine Arf, after so many years!! I can't wait to get my order!
This is my absolute favorite piece of jewelry that I have, and I have a lot of beautiful pieces. I started buying Fine Arf in 1994 when I got my awesome link bracelet and a Westie (my breed) charm. The last charm on the left is not FA, I still need to replace that and get another charm in addition. I am so impressed with Lisa Greene, not only with her beautiful products, but her ability to grow the business the way that she has, truly remarkable. I don't see a bracelet that matches the 'coolness' of this bracelet, thick chain link, and I have the original charms, which are now called 'large' charms. This is my beloved conversation piece, people always comment on it and I proudly say it is 'The Fine Arf Collection.' Keep doing what you're doing, I love my bracelet and I LOVE Fine Arf!!!
