Keeping Your Pet Healthy With Primal Treats (Sponsored Post)



I love my pets. They are my babies, and they make my heart feel light. I can't imagine ever being without a pet of some kind (preferably a furball).

My favorite would have to be my dog, Charmin. Charm was born in 1996, the youngest pup of my sister's dog, Rosie. Charm was my best friend, and I could never bring myself to imagine life without her.

Charm with two of her siblings.
One Sunday evening in 2010 my mom called me, sobbing, and told me that Charmie was sick. My dad and sister took her to the vet to see what was what, but she was suffering from Gastric Torsion, which is when the stomach fills with air and flips, cutting off circulation to her lower extremities. It happens without warning, and sometimes can be fixed with surgery, but Charmin's age and current physical health made it impossible (her lower spine looked like it had fused itself together). She probably never would've woken up from the surgery.


In the days that followed, I did as much research on Gastric Torsion that I could. I found out that it was a disorder that usually affects bigger dogs, and it's usually caused by diet.

Frisket is thirteen and a half, almost fourteen years old. He's definitely slowing down, but he can still be the rambunctious little pup that he used to be. Feeding natural, whole foods without fillers are always going to be best.

Turkey Liver Munchies by Primal Treats are just that. They're freeze dried, no added salt, sugar, or preservatives. Plus, they're for dogs and cats. Frisket loves them. Jane's not too sure about them, but she's finicky.

Frisket is mad about them, though. He can't seem to get enough, so it's probably good that we don't keep them where the other cats can reach them. Henry and Frisket seem to be in cahoots, where Henry tosses stuff from counters onto the floor for Frisket.

Charmie would've turned twenty this year if big dogs lived that long. I still miss her, and I sometimes wonder if I could've saved her, but thanks to the research I've done because of her, I think I can prevent it happening in another dog. At least, I hope so.

I'm Moving!

Talk about a long hiatus!

So, things have been happening, or rather, things have been stalling, and I've decided that I need to actually do things in order to achieve what I want to in life. Where I want my writing to go, and what I want to dedicate my blog to.

When I first started MJA I had no idea what I wanted in a blog. I just wanted to write, and I hoped that the readers would follow me. And it took awhile, but you have! But I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog because I was trying to turn it into something that it just couldn't be.

I'm an author, first and foremost, and upon meeting other writers, I've learned so much and want to pass on that education to others, like they've passed on to me.

That said, The Modern Jane Austen isn't going to be getting updates anymore. This is a blog where I wrote about my life, some reviews here and there, and just a few tidbits about my writing journey. But it was mostly a confused mess, IMO, and I've …

September Musings on Writing

Another year has gone by.



I'm 20 days out from my 31st birthday.


I'm 24 days out from embarking on my first cruise to Canada.


I'm thismuch closer to finishing a second manuscript this year.

So, it's shaping up to be a pretty exciting month for me. I'd REALLY like to finish both manuscripts so that I can get to working on their second drafts before NaNoWriMo kicks off in November.

Yes. I'm using my thirties as I should've used my twenties: As someone who wants to write books for a living. Novel concept right?

But honestly. Six years ago when I started at my current job, I was under the illusion that what happened to Amanda Hocking would happen to me. Haha! I was so cute and naive when I was 25.

The last year or so, I've tried really hard to understand what it means to be an independent or self-published author. How you have to put your best work out there, not just the crappy first draft that you were just relieved to finish. That editors want to help yo…

Free Money! 3 Tips For Giving Plasma

Today, I wanted to talk to you about giving Plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that carries your blood cells all around your body. When you give plasma, they use it to make medication, and it also helps patients who have experienced trauma, have bleeding disorders, and more. I started giving Plasma back in 2007 when gas prices were upwards of $4 a gallon in Missouri, where I was living and needed all the extra money I could get. At the time, I got about $40/donation, but now I give through OctaPharma here in CB, with different pricing (It varies based on your weight).

It hasn't always been easy, though. A few years ago, I was unable to keep giving, and I couldn't figure out why. When I went back to try to raise money for an upcoming vacation the first few times I tried, my protein levels were either too low or at the bare minimum, so I thought I'd share some tips that help.

1. Three hours before you go, start eating something with protein.  I usually give in t…
