Ruby: jedno sretno štene!

Objavljeno u Ljubimci

Jednog lijepog sunčanog dana u ožujku, jedno sretno štene došetalo je u Jelsu popiti kavu sa svojim novim vlasnicima.

Ruby je još jedna uspješna priča iz Centra za životinje Bestie u Kaštel Sućurcu. Navodno je skupa sa svojom braćom i sestrama ostavljena u masliniku i odvedena u Sklonište. Tada zvana Lily, udomila ju je jedna od predanih volonterki Skloništa.

Nije trebalo dugo da osvoji srca ljubitelja životinja, Nina i Diane, koji su je prekrstili u Ruby. Upravo su se smjestili u Starom Gradu na otoku Hvaru sa željom da tamo pokrenu posao. Rubyin posjet Jelsi 17. ožujka 2020. uslijedio je samo tri dana nakon što su je udomili njeni novi, vrlo brižni vlasnici, i očito se snašla.
 
Brzo se počela zanimati za svoje novo okruženje, njušeći nove mogućnosti iz sigurnosti svoje novopronađene 'parcele'.

Lajala je žestoko, ali bojažljivo kako bi se obranila od ljubitelja životinja koji su se pokušavali sprijateljiti s njom, držeći se što bliže svojim odabranim dvonožnim roditeljima. To je vjerojatno rezultat njezinih prijašnjih iskustva, ali i želje da 'zaštiti' svoje nove skrbnike.

Već u tih nekoliko dana, Ruby je stvorila snažnu, trajnu vezu sa svojom novom obitelji. Nakon izvršenih obaveza, Dianu je dočekala Ruby poskakujući od oduševljenja - istovremeno otkrivajući svoju tjeskobu što je Diana napustila obitelj. Suočena sa strancem koji drži kameru, pogled joj je bio malo sumnjičav.

Brzo se prestala zamarati ovim neobičnim upadom u njezin privatni prostor kada je shvatila da nema opasnosti za njene dvonožne roditelje. Psi razmišljaju drugačije od nas dvonožaca. Uzrok ogromnom entuzijazmu koji pokažu kad nas nakon rastanka ponovno vide, koliko god taj entuzijazam kratak bio, često je njihovo uvjerenje da su oni odgovorni za naše dobro. Kada se to dogodi, govorimo o zamjeni uloga, kada ljubimac osjeća da je i da mora biti gazda. Kako bi se odnos ispravio, vlasnici ljubimaca moraju pokazati da su oni glavni, tako da nema potrebe da se pas brine. Nježnost je ključna
 
Iskusni dreseri pasa preporučuju samo nekoliko strategija:
- ignorirajte nepoželjno ponašanje što je više moguće,
- svakako izbjegavajte bilo kakvu vrstu fizičkog kažnjavanja;
- izbjegavajte napast da psa mazite u svakom mogućem trenutku, ali dobro ponašanje nagradite prigodnom nagradom ili poslasticom, te lijepim riječima;
- uvijek jedite prije hranjenja ljubimca;
- naučite svog ljubimca da čeka nakon što odložite zdjelicu s hranom sve dok ne date znak da može jesti;
- ignorirajte svog ljubimca kada ga ostavljate jer izlazite vani ili kada se vraćate, bez obzira koliko se trudio privući vašu pažnju;
- i kada ga izvodite vani, uvijek prvi prođite kroz vrata ili kapiju i neka pričeka da slijedi.
 
Diana i Nino rade sve točno, kako bi pomogli Ruby napredovati, a Ruby uzvraća ljubavlju, odanošću i povjerenjem. Ona će zasigurno nagraditi svoje roditelje s puno zabave i distrakcije tijekom ovog razdoblja čekanja da kriza Covid-19 nestane, dok ponovno ne pokrenu svoj novi posao. Eco Hvar ovom novoformiranom partnerstvu želi puno sreće! Puno hvala svima koji su pomogli da se budućnost ove male skitnice iz tmurne pretvori u svijetlu.

  • Senior climate figures welcome move after Conservative government largely left the role to junior ministers

    Ed Miliband is to take personal control of the UK’s negotiations at vital international climate talks, in stark contrast to his Tory predecessors.

    The energy security and net zero secretary will attend Cop29, this year’s UN climate summit, in Azerbaijan this November to head the UK’s delegation and meet political leaders from around the world.

  • Electric vehicles are ‘batteries on wheels’ that can put energy back into the National Grid when solar panels and windfarms do not provide much power

    Electric cars make some people afraid of the dark. While the batteries produce much less carbon, they require much more electricity to run. This has prompted ominous warnings that Great Britain and other wealthy countries set on banning new petrol and diesel cars risk plunging their populations into darkness.

    In recent months British net zero-sceptical newspapers have warned that the shift to EVs would “risk overwhelming the grid, and threaten catastrophic blackouts” when intermittent sun and wind fail to provide the necessary power. Another article claimed: “It won’t take an enemy power to put us all in the dark – just energy customers doing normal things on a normal winter’s evening.”

  • Site in Pembrokeshire currently grazed by sheep will be planted with a range of species and reconnect to Celtic past

    A lost piece of Celtic rainforest in the far south-west of Wales is to be restored to its ancient glory, weaving around standing stones and an abandoned, tumbling-down farmhouse with a waterwheel.

    The 59-hectare (146-acre) site in Pembrokeshire will be planted with species such as oak, small-leaf lime and wild service (Sorbus torminalis) and should support an abundance of mosses, liverworts, lichens and ferns as well as providing a home for animals and other plant life.

  • Tess, a 40-year-old female at Houston zoo, has been given a trial mRNA vaccine to help combat the virus, a leading killer of calves in captivity

    An Asian elephant at Houston zoo in the US has received the first mRNA vaccine against herpes, which is the leading killer of Asian elephants calves in captivity.

    Tess, a 40-year-old Asian elephant, was injected with the trial vaccine at the Texas zoo in June, after a spate of deaths in juveniles in zoos around the world from the elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV).

  • Ravenscraig, North Lanarkshire: A place once of coke ovens and cooling towers is now enlivened with orchids and stonecrop, and swards of grasses

    I’m walking through Ravenscraig, once the site of the largest steelworks in Europe, which was closed and demolished more than 30 years ago. While there has been some redevelopment on its fringes, the bulk of the site has been left. The skylarks that soar upwards to become nothing but song will look down on the circles where once were cooling towers and gas towers, the rectangular templates of the buildings, strip mills and coke ovens, and roads leading to them, edges now softened and fringed with birch and willow.

    From a distance, the oxeye daisies intermingling with the lush grasses look like a smattering of snow; close up, thick swards of grass are peppered with St John’s wort, yellow rattle, tufted and yellow vetch, and red clover – little pings of colour amid the subtle pinks, purples and greens of the grasses.

  • Ed Miliband sets new rules on solar panels and approves three giant solar farms as Labour seeks to end years of Tory inaction

    Keir Starmer’s Labour government unveils plans for a “rooftop revolution” today that will see millions more homes fitted with solar panels in order to bring down domestic energy bills and tackle the climate crisis.

    The energy secretary, Ed Miliband, also took the hugely controversial decision this weekend to approve three massive solar farms in the east of England that had been blocked by Tory ministers.

  • It’s not entirely clear if fox numbers are on the rise in urban areas, but research shows they are learning to avoid hazards such as dogs and poisonous baits

    Alex Abbey’s security camera captured something moving through an alley behind his home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs a few weeks ago. When he watched the 2am footage the next day, he was surprised to see a red fox on the screen.

    “It’s unusual. It’s the first time I have seen one in Potts Point,” he says.

  • Initiative aims to coax visitors and local people into air-conditioned venues during sweltering summer afternoons

    A little after 3pm on a weekday afternoon, the footsteps and voices that echoed along the hallowed halls of the Prado were silenced by a series of percussive detonations that could have been mistaken for an indoor fireworks display.

    The source of the disruption, however, was not a vandal or a protester. Watched over by the eight muses for whom the Madrid museum’s Sala de las Musas is named, a tall, famous and angular flamenco dancer called El Yiyo was clicking, clapping, stomping and pirouetting before a rapt, grateful and slightly bemused audience. A few feet away sat the renowned guitarist Rafael Andújar, who had ambled into the sala a few moments earlier, taken his seat and begun to fill the air with notes.

  • A British geneticist scoured the globe for diverse grains in the 1920s. His research could be vital as the climate changes

    A hundred years ago, the plant scientist Arthur Watkins launched a remarkable project. He began collecting samples of wheat from all over the globe, nagging consuls and business agents across the British empire and beyond to supply him with grain from local markets.

    His persistence was exceptional and, a century later, it is about to reap dramatic results. A UK-Chinese collaboration has sequenced the DNA of all the 827 kinds of wheat, assembled by Watkins, that have been nurtured at the John Innes Centre near Norwich for most of the past century.

  • Such schemes have their critics but the technology, which has been known for a century, could help many nations reach net zero

    Snowy Hydro’s beleaguered tunnel boring machine, Florence, seems to be regularly stuck between soft rock and a hard place.

    But that has not deterred enthusiasts for pumped hydro as a key part of Australia’s transition off fossil fuels.

  • Doba u kojem živimo obilježeno je sve bržim promjenama koje se name?‡u morskom okolišu, a gotovo za sve odgovorni su ljudi. Obalna zona Sredozemlja, pa tako i našeg Jadranskoga mora,  mjesto je na kojemu obitava više od polovice ukupnog stanovništva Mediterana te zbog toga ovo usko područje predstavlja i jedan od najugroženijih morskih okoliša.

  • U našem dijelu svijeta, koji zovemo zapadnim i smatramo razvijenim, prije samo 50 godina nisu sve žene imale pravo glasa na izborima, nisu imale jednak pristup obrazovanju, nisu mogle voditi države i nisu imale pristup visokim pozicijama u poslovnom svijetu.

  • Gotovo svi su upoznati s činjenicom kako oceani i mora prekrivaju više od 70 % površine Zemlje. Me?‘utim, nedovoljno je prepoznato kako su oceani, mora i obalna područja esencijalni dio Zemljinih ekosustava te kako o njima ovisi cijelo čovječanstvo, bilo na obali ili u dubokoj unutrašnjosti kontinenata! Zašto?

Dakle, potrebno je promijeniti načine na koji proizvodimo hranu, smanjiti bacanje hrane, pove?‡ati udjele obnovljive izvore energije u ukupnoj proizvodnji energije, pravilno gospodariti otpadom tijekom čitavog njegovog životnog ciklusa kako bi, me?‘u ostalim što manje utjecali na zaga?‘enje zraka, vode i tla.
