Cesar’s fulfillment formula is Exercise, Discipline, and then Affection, in that order — and the best way to provide exercise is to walk your dog. But one of the areas in which people seem to report the most trouble is … walking their dogs. Their dogs pull ahead, or act aggressively toward other dogs, or bark or snarl at everything. When you experience this type of behavior, it can really be a big disincentive to walking, which just makes things worse.

Some of us, when we think of a puppy, imagine an adorably tiny dog that can barely open his eyes stumbling around as he explores the world. Others see a whirlwind of doggy energy that can’t keep still for a second because there are too many balls to chase, scents to smell, and things to pee on… and then roll in.

Affectionate, warm, and covered in soft fur, your dog may seem like an attractive bedtime cuddle buddy. If you’ve ever welcomed your pet up onto your bed, you are not alone — not even close. An estimated 79 percent of pet owners share their beds with their pets. As reported by WebMD , a survey from the American Pet Products Association determined that 62 percent of small dogs, 41 percent of medium-sized dogs, and 32 percent of large dogs sleep in their human’s beds.

While it is natural for a dog to sleep with his “pack,” that doesn’t mean that people should engage in this activity. It’s best for Fido to have his own dog bed. Why? Because sleeping with dogs may have health implications for us. In fact, studies have found a number of health risks associated with sleeping with a dog in your bed, including:

Transmission of diseases
A study published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that sharing a bed with a pet can result in the transmission of zoonotic agents that can cause serious infections. Zoonotic agents are things that can transmit disease from animals to humans, whether viruses, parasites, or insects. While this is rare among healthy pets, sick dogs can sometimes pass on diseases to humans when dog and master share the covers.

Allergy problems
A more common issue associated with sleeping with pets is the effect it may have on allergies and asthma. Even if you don’t think that you have any pet allergies, sleeping in the same bed or even the same room as your dog can aggravate the smallest of symptoms and cause all kinds of problems.

Sleep problems

If you’ve ever woken up to your pooch sleep-kicking you, vocalizing whatever doggy dreams she’s having, or frequently readjusting his sleeping space on your bed, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that studies have found bedding down with your dog can disturb your sleep. The Mayo Clinic Sleep Disorders Center found that 53 percent of pet owners attributed sleep problems to their furry bedfellow. Though soft and cuddly, allowing your dog into your bed can make a good night’s sleep impossible.

In addition to health issues among humans, permitting dogs to sleep in human beds can cause behavioral problems for dogs, often affecting housebreaking and allowing aggression to develop.

The bottom line? Sleeping with your dog can cause problems for both of you. As difficult as it might be if you love the closeness of sleeping together, the best option is to provide your dog with his own bed. With time and training, your pet will learn to cuddle up in a dog bed every night, and leave human beds to the humans.

You’ve recently seen a lot of hype about the Friday night Magic Market at Puerto Magico. Well, that’s because it’s totally awesome!! And better yet, it is very specifically Puro Mexicano. Every vendor there has been meticulously chosen for their solely Mexican products.

perttyhibiscusplate.jpg

I spoke with Teresita Gonzales, Magic Manager of Magic Market participants. She told me this project has been in the works since January and was planned to begin next spring, but then the Covid disruption occurred. Now that people are starting to go back out and live their lives again, it is the perfect time to get it going. Puerto Magico offers ample space for social distancing while still having fun, and gives the artists a place to display their goods that they have not had for several months.

The project is intended to promote local and social development towards a solidarity economy. Vendors come from all over the region, bringing many different types of products for a complete experience. Besides the beautifully handcrafted artisanal products, you can find clothing, handbags, beauty care products, health care products, superfood products, baked goods, candies and ice creams, and healthy freshly prepared food. Magic Market has provided an opportunity for persons with original ideas and inspirations to become a reality.

Vendors must first complete an application, and then they will be granted an interview where they can present their products for consideration. There are strict standards by which only Puro Mexicano products and food will be permitted, and this is further supervised at the event. Teresita has been working with these types of vendors for 8 years, and we have her to thank for many of them, but anyone can apply. Just click on any of the links below for more information. Performing artists are welcome to apply as well, as Magic Market is also a fun Friday festival with free entertainment. Please enjoy their performance and show your appreciation generously, as they are working on tips.

Teresita wishes to thank Puerto Magico for making the space available for Magic Market. She would like everyone to know how happy she and the vendors are to receive Puerto Magico’s support of this event, because Puerto Magico believes in their purpose and in the artists, chefs, producers, and entertainers themselves.
