SUID-KAAP NUUS - Twee mense, 'n man en vrou, is Sondagoggend (28 Mei) op die N1 naby Beaufort-Wes in hegtenis geneem nadat kokaïen en tik van sowat R20,5 miljoen in die motor waarmee hulle gery het, gevind is.

Hulle was onderweg van Johannesburg na Kaapstad.

Die 52 kg tik en 5,5 kg kokaïen was in plastieksakke in die kattebak van die voertuig versteek.

Beide verdagtes, ’n Nigeriese man (49) en ’n Zimbabwiese vrou (28), het vroeër die week in die hof op Beaufort-Wes verskyn waar hul saak tot volgende Maandag (5 Junie) uitgestel is vir 'n formele borgtogaansoek.

Free feeding is bad for your DOG!


Do you free feed your dog?

GARDEN ROUTE NEWS - Ad lib/free feeding a dog means that a dog has access to food all day long. So that means the dog is eating whenever it wants to and that makes me a good owner, right?


Whenever food is readily available, most dogs will eat continually. So what is bad about that? In studies it has been found that a shocking 52,6% of domestic dogs are obese. Even worse, most owners are unaware that their dogs are obese!

Obesity may lead to many illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, some cancers, early arthritis and joint problems because of the extra weight the dogs carry.

In training our dogs, food is the best reward for good behaviour. For example, if the dog comes when he is called and is rewarded with a tasty treat, he is much more likely to come to you the next time he is called.

If our dogs are continually full, there is no reason for them to want to do anything in order to receive their reward.

After all, with ad-lib feeding they probably permanently feel as we do after devouring our large Sunday roast!

Food can also be used to correct unwanted behaviour, like barking excessively when alone. There are many toys on the market that can be filled with food so that when your dog learns how to use the toy, he will find his breakfast/supper. This could occupy him for ages trying to get to his meal.

Food is also used to correct behaviours such as pulling on a lead or running away in a dog park. This kind of training is not possible with a dog that has ad-lib food.

Many owners who complain that their dog doesn't listen, is naughty, stubborn and not food-motivated, have unwittingly devalued the dog's food because he has access to it all day. However, by controlling food intake, it's much easier to elicit a specific behaviour in exchange for rewards.

If you feed your dog twice a day, you will immediately notice when your dog is reluctant to eat. This may be a sign that he is sick. This can be life-saving in the case of say, biliary fever, where time is crucial.

So, now that you know why it is preferable to have regular mealtimes, make the choice that is right for your dog!

Smile for the day!


Fruit Store Joke
Smile for the day!

An older man comes into a small fruit store and sees a new delivery of fresh fruit.

“Give me two pounds of kiwis and wrap every kiwi up in a separate piece of paper, please,” he says to the saleswoman. She does.

“And three pounds of potatoes, please, and wrap up every one in a separate piece of paper, too.” She does it again. “And what is that there,” he asks pointing out a basket in the corner.

“Cherry tomatoes,” says the saleswoman, “but they are not for sale!”
