Dog Allergy Sources Aren’t Across the Board

Those with asthma are familiar with allergies. Asthma already involves a weakness in one’s ability to breathe normally and allergies would only heighten this situation. And, no surprise, when people have allergies, they also likely have pet allergies in 1 out of almost 3 cases. This is a common situation. At least a fifth of most modern societies have allergies to furry pets, cats or dogs or everything in between.

Dogs May Have Gotten a Bad Allergy Rap

For the rest of society, dog ownership tends to be a benefit. Aside from companionship and notable loyalty compared to other animals, dogs also seem to be able to help those suffering from cardiac arrests survive the events with a higher probability than without a canine pet. However, those who have allergies frequently believe dogs have to be included in that stimuli and avoided as a result. This, it could turn out, may not be correct.

Folks try to start with dogs that don’t shed, assuming a hypoallergenic canine might avoid the allergy reaction. However, this misses the fact that pet allergies aren’t triggered by fur and animal hair. Instead, it’s the dander of the animal and saliva that are the real culprits. Scientifically, the root of the problem is a protein generated by a canine’s prostate. Some people are allergic to certain breeds and fine with others. Some seem to be allergic to all breeds. However, what’s not widely known is that there is a protein difference given off, depending on the gender of the dog involved. That’s a gamechanger; people with pet allergies, even those with asthma, could actually be a dog-owner once the specific male breed can be identified. Female and neutered dogs become viable pets for far more folks previously handicapped by their heightened reaction systems.

The Culprit Not Expected

The specific protein involved is known as the Can f 5 protein. Again, this biological trigger is produced in the canine prostate gland and emanate through the dog’s skin, hair and urine. The protein is so light, it can even aerosolize and be breathed in. Worse, for those with allergies, the proteins can hang in a surrounding for a long time if there is no vibrant airflow, triggering allergies long after the dog has left. Furniture, bedding, clothing, and carpet are all capable of holding onto the proteins as well.

On the other hand, allergies can be “sedated” over time as well with repeat exposure. Eventually, the body adapts and the reactions lessen, especially if the ongoing exposure occurs early in age, as in one’s first few years of life. The results have actually be studied and noted in reducing the impact of asthma in such sufferers versus increasing it as they get older.

For those who are too old though, a dog’s gender interaction with allergies is a huge breakthrough to enjoy the bond with a pet. It just has to be the right gender.

Lots of people would love to know exactly what it’s like to go sky diving. However, it’s obviously the sort of experience that has been traditionally been difficult to accurately record. The actual sky dive itself might seem like it lasts longer than it does to the people who are actually experiencing the event. However, objectively speaking, it usually won’t take all that long. The moment is over so quickly that it’s easy for it to get lost.

However, technology is constantly improving, and it’s giving individuals everywhere the chance to see a lot of very different events from purely original perspectives. For a long time, the people who have never traveled have been able to see different places remotely.

Obviously, the experience of going there in person will be different in a lot of ways. However, it’s still possible for people to learn a lot by seeing high-quality images and videos. Traveling is expensive, and many of the people who are interested in activities like sky diving are concerned about some of the associated risks. It’s possible to reduce the risks associated with sky diving, and the costs associated with travel.

However, the people who have a more casual interest in sky diving might just want to get a more basic idea of what it’s like. With this new footage, they might finally get the chance to do so accurately.

The woman in this video has actually leaped out of an airplane from an altitude of thirteen thousand and five hundred feet. She was seated inside an inflatable ring made from rubber at the time. Her name is Robin Moore, and this footage of her will be seen by millions of people now. It’s just the sort of video that gets viewed over and over again over the years, since it’s just not the sort of thing that gets seen on film all that often.

A lot of people get nervous when they sky dive, even if they were excited about it initially. They might be happy right up until they’re actually about to literally make the leap, at which point they panic or get terribly nervous at least. This was not the case for Robin Moore, which is one of the many reasons why this was such a great video. She seemed absolutely ecstatic the entire time, which really comes through in the images themselves.

This occurred in Florida at River Ranch, and the raft was being stabilized by Robin Moore’s friends. Interestingly, Robin Moore is a physician who works in the emergency room. She’s clearly a person who is used to being in a lot of stressful situations and working in an environment with high stakes and more.

For someone in her profession, something like sky diving might not be all that scary. It would explain why she was able to take to an activity like this so easily. Raft jumps involving sky diving are not entirely standard, but they still happen. It seems that Robin Moore is a person who enjoys challenging activities even when not at work. This is an activity and experience that she was able to share with the world.

The fact that she was and is so enthusiastic only improves the quality of the video. While some people may have been interested in footage that captured a different range of emotions, many other people would want to see someone having fun with this sort of activity, which was clearly the case here. A lot of people would like to know what it is like to do something like sky diving, and it is now possible to at least have an idea after footage like this has been made available to the world.

Priests On Tiki Bar Rescue Drowning Man

It was supposed to be a normal, wavy afternoon as Jimmy MacDonald from Albany rode the waves on Lake George in his kayak- little did he know. 

According to him, he lost focus and drifted away from his wife and step-kids because he was taking pictures with his new mobile phone. By the time he realized what was happening, it was too late- the water got choppier, he lost control of his kayak and tipped over into the water. 

Jimmy was in a lot of trouble and to make it worse, his life jacket was coming up over his head- he hadn’t secured it properly. Within a few seconds, he found himself holding on to the kayak with one hand and his new $1,400 smartphone, the origin of the problem, with the other. 

According to him, he spotted other kayakers and canoeists passing by, but he was too proud to yell for help. After futile efforts to get back on his kayak, he decided to accept his fate, and resorted to asking God for help. 

“That’s when I said, ‘Alright, I think I might die today. I think this might be it.’ I prayed to my lord and savior Jesus Christ for help,” Jimmy said.

Luckily for him, Greg Barrett captain for Tiki Tours was in the area.

“A lot of things aligned that day,” Barrett said.

At first Barrett spotted Jimmy’s paddle and then one of his passengers said they heard a call for help.

“So as soon as I turned the boat towards him, I realized his life preserver had been in the upper portion of his head, and he was hanging on for dear life,” Barrett said.

They knew they had to save his life, so they got close to him, and helped him get onboard their vessel. 

Apparently, Jimmy is a drug counselor and a recovering addict.

“How funny is it that I’ve been sober for seven years and I get saved by a tiki bar?” Jimmy laughed.

Surprisingly, it was not just any tiki bar- it was one packed priests and seminarians from the Paulist Fathers, a Catholic retreat on the lake. Remember that Jimmy prayed for help for some heavenly intervention? Well, his prayers were answered in form of holy men on a floating tiki bar. Coincidence? Doesn’t look like it. 

The priests and seminarians who were onboard are certain that Jimmy’s rescue was not at all natural or normal. They believe that a supernatural and divine force influenced their availability to help Jimmy right when and where he needed them. 

“We’re missionaries,” said Chris Malano, a second-year seminarian. “For us, that day, that was our mission to be present and to help someone in need.”

Jimmy’s job and life career was to help people drowning in addiction, but he was literally saved from drowning by God’s holy men, right after praying. 

“I just take that as a sign from God that he’s got me here for a real reason,” said MacDonald.

After 5 months of impromptu travel around the world, Pipsqueak the adventure canine reunites with her family

The wave of the pandemic saw the separation of a little daschund from her family during a four-year sailing trip with her Australian family. 

As the pandemic built momentum across the world, her owners, Zoe and Guy Eibeck and their kids all rushed back home, but sadly, their dog Pipsqueak couldn’t. 

Since the separation in March, Pipsqueak travelled 17,000 kilometers to her home in Sydney- a journey most humans can’t boast of. The adventure took her through North and South Carolina, Los Angeles, Auckland, and Melbourne. It must have a scary journey for her, especially since she was in the company of strangers along the way.

At a point, it seemed like fate didn’t want Pipsqueak back home. The poor canine was booked on a cargo flight from Melbourne to Sydney, but unfortunately, it was full. In light of this, she had to take a longer route before she could be reunited with her family in Sydney. 

Her story got some attention, and luckily, Virgin Australia swooped in to save the day. Little Pipsqueak was booked on an early flight to Sydney for her to rest her tired legs.  

According to Olivia Cayzer, a crew member on the flight, the daschund was given the VIP treatment. Well, she deserved it and more after the kind of ordeal she had been through. 

Pipsqueak was finally reunited with her family after an early drop-off. She was led through the terminal where the whole Eilbeck family was waiting for her with open arms and gushing emotions. 

“She’s part of our family and it’s been five months and that’s a long time time to miss anybody,” Mr Eilbeck said. 

“During these difficult times it’s nice to be able to put a smile on someone’s face,” said Glen Monoley, Virgin Australia group general manager. In his statement, he said that he was glad they played an important role in reuniting Pipsqueak with her family after many months apart.

Identical Twin Sisters Married To Identical Twin Brothers Both Announce Pregnancies

No one knows if this was planned, but identical twins Brittany and Briana Salyers, married to Josh and Jeremy Salyers – also identical twins are both expecting at the same time. They broke the news via a Baywatch-themed Instagram post on Friday, and the story has made headlines since then. 

In the Instagram post captioned “Guess what!!?? BOTH couples are pregnant!,” Josh and Jeremy wore lifeguard costumes while their brides, now to be mothers, dressed up in one-piece bathing suits that read “Baby Watch,” and struck poses that clearly gave off their baby bumps. The rest of the caption also states the fact that their children will be cousins, genetic siblings, and quaternary multiples! Isn’t that amazing? 

The twin couples hit the spotlight when they appeared on TLC’s Our Twinsane Wedding, and this wonderful news only two years after shows how well their journeys as wedded couples has gone. Their joint marriage was officiated by identical twin ministers at the 2018 Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio – exactly where they had met only one year ago. The marriage ceremony was themed “Twice Upon a Time” and now they are expecting to add at least two more members to their happy twin family. 

Brittany revealed at the marriage ceremony that the idea of living in the same house to raise their children together in harmony made them really happy, and now they get to bring their imaginations into reality. Brittany said, “When we have children, my and Josh’s children will be genetic siblings to Briana and Jeremy’s Children. We imagine it will be like two moms and two dads all raising our families together.”

The sisters share a special bond typical of twins. Before their double pregnancy revelation, Brittany and Briana have always shared the urge to do things the same way- matching outfits, and double dating, which eventually led to their marriage to Josh and Jeremy. Each one of the sisters sees herself as incomplete without the other- something like being two halves of a whole. 

From the joint wedding to the joint pregnancies, everything has felt like a fairytale. According to Briana, getting married to identical twins has always been the goal, and they had already foreseen it since their kindergarten days. 

They knew the chances of having such a perfect future were really slim. For their dreams to come true, the stars had to align in quintessential harmony, and it seems like they did. 

In Brittany’s own words, “I get to marry the man of my dreams and at the same time I get to look over next to me and see my twin sister marrying the man of her dreams.” 

Their fairytale story can get a lot better if they both give birth to twins. Yes, the chances of that happening are like a googolplex to one, but who knows? It just might happen.
