Here are some interesting dog facts from the AKC, for your learning and enjoyment!

We realize we may be biased, but here at the AKC we never get tired of learning more about dogs, whether it’s a new study on canine behavior, a statistic from the AKC’s database, or even just cool facts about a dog’s impressive physical and mental abilities. You may know some of these already, and others may be more of a “wait, really?” situation, but we think you’ll find all of them entertaining. (Did we mention we’re biased?)

1. The Labrador Retriever has been on the AKC’s top 10 most popular breeds list for 25 consecutive years—longer than any other breed.
2. A dog’s nose print is unique, much like a person’s fingerprint.
3. Forty-five percent of U.S. dogs sleep in their owner’s bed.
4. Speaking of sleeping … all dogs dream, but puppies and senior dogs dream more frequently than adult dogs.
5. Seventy percent of people sign their dog’s name on their holiday cards.
6. A dog’s sense of smell is legendary, but did you know that his nose has as many as 300 million receptors? In comparison, a human nose has about 5 million.
7.  Tin Tin, the famous German Shepherd, was nominated for an Academy Award.
8. The shape of a dog’s face suggests its longevity: A long face means a longer life.
9. Dog eyes have a part called the tapetum lucidum, allowing night vision.
10. The name Collie means “black.” (Collies once tended black-faced sheep.)
11. Yawning is contagious—even for dogs. Research shows that the sound of a human yawn can trigger one from your dog. And it’s four times as likely to happen when it’s the yawn of a person he knows.
12. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is the only breed named for a fictional person—a character in the novel Guy Mannering, by Sir Walter Scott.
13. Dogs curl up in a ball when sleeping to protect their organs—a hold over from their days in the wild, when they were vulnerable to predator attacks.
14. The Basenji is not technically “barkless,” as many people think. They can yodel.
15. The Australian Shepherd is not actually from Australia—they are an American breed.And

16. The Labrador Retriever is originally from Newfoundland.
17. Human blood pressure goes down when petting a dog. And so does the dog’s.
18. There are over 75 million pet dogs in the U.S.—more than in any other country.
19. A person who hunts with a Beagle is known as a “Beagler.”
20. Dogs are not colorblind. They also see blue and yellow.
21. All puppies are born deaf.
22. Dalmatians are born completely white, and develop their spots as they get older.
23. Dogs have about 1,700 taste buds. (We humans have between 2,000–10,000.)
24. When dogs kick backward after they go to the bathroom it’s not to cover it up, but to mark their territory, using the scent glands in their feet.
25. A recent study shows that dogs are among a small group of animals who show voluntary unselfish kindness towards others without any reward. This is one fact dog lovers have always known!

Happy Friday from Baby Taos and Coral…

Taos and I had a beautiful day today! We went to coffee this morning, with someone whom we love very much… and then to a chiropractor appointment afterwards…and everyone loves Taos at her office! Everyone loves Baby Taos everywhere!!

Taos and her Mom, are finally getting more comfortable in their own skin…and it feels nice!

We hope you all have a beautiful evening!

Love, Love, Love…

Baby Taos and Coral

Some time with Taos…

Sometimes, okay…probably a lot of times, Taos doesn’t get the quality time she needs and deserves with me…

So today, after clients, on our way home, we went to our favorite park and we ran, and we ran and then we ran some more…and it was great!

And then, Taos road shotgun, all the way home… and we listened to our most favorite music, and then we stopped for hugs..

Just wanted to share this moment with you to remind you of how important your own animals are…how important your time with them is…and how important their time is with you…

Have a beautiful evening everyone! Taos is already in dreamland…and I won’t be far behind…

Some client photos from today, for your viewing pleasure!

A note from Coral…

Hello! Thank you for being here! I am so happy to finally be here!

This is a very exciting moment for me! My page is finally live for Max and Me. Still a work in progress, no doubt…as I am learning as I go.

I have been learning as I go for my entire life…and being a student, being a teacher…well, that is what brought me here.

I began my healing journey when I graduated from Massage School in 2008. Very soon after graduating, I realized that my work was to be with animals, and not exclusively with human clients.

I will always be thankful for the day that I learned that my work in the world, which always had been my work, was to work side by side with animals.

I have always been comfortable talking to animals and for as long as I can remember, animals have spoken to me.

My greatest mentors are animals. I am blessed to live in Sanctuary with 40 of the most amazing beings on the planet!

My partner and I co-founded Santuario de Karuna, A Vegan Farm Animal Sanctuary. We are a registered 501C3, non-profit, located in the beautiful East Mountains Of Tijeras, New Mexico.

My work with Max and Me goes hand in hand with our work at the Sanctuary.

My work is to restore balance and to promote healing. My main objective, always, is to ensure and promote quality of life.

I work closely with hospice and provide end of life care. All of my work, always, is to facilitate healing, to restore balance and to love, love, love…

Max and Me grows and evolves and ebbs and flows, in the most beautiful energy, with the most amazing beings, every single day!

I am so blessed to do the work that I do, as an Animal Reiki Master, as an Animal Communicator, as an LMT, as an Ordained Minister, as a guardian of this amazing Sanctuary, that is also my home…

If I have learned one thing on this journey, it is that those are simply my credentials…that’s it…my paperwork that tells you who I am…

Plain and simple, I am Coral…and I dedicate my love and my life to walking alongside animals. My work with animals. My heart is with animals. My home is with animals.

I use love energy…Reiki energy…my hands and my Spiritual Guides, to facilitate healing, to restore balance…to give hope and reassurance, to those with broken spirits and injured bodies…my work, plain and simple…my work is love.

My logo is the Reiki symbol Tam-a-ra-sha, the symbol for balance, with all of the animals mixed in…a perfect symbol to encompass the work that I am blessed to do…

I want to thank all of my beautiful and amazing clients…my past clients and clients who have crossed The Rainbow Bridge, my current clients, whom I walk with every single day, and those of you who have just found me!

Thank you for your trust. Thank you for your love. Thank you for your faith in the work that I am so blessed to facilitate!

Now let’s get to work on some healing for the amazing companions who walk alongside us on this amazing journey!





Relaying their messages to you

My name is Coral and this is my business page, Max and Me. We are dedicating this page to my journey with Morgan, as well as my journey with all of your beloved companions.

I work with animals, in the comfort of their own home, to eliminate the stress of car rides and visits to unfamiliar places.

I work with people and animals around the world and in other realms, doing distance work. I once birthed a rhinoceros in the Serengeti from my home in New Mexico.

I specialize in energy and communication work. I am an Animal Reiki Master, an LMT since 2008. I am a spiritual being having a temporary human experience.

I am also the co-founder of Santuario de Karuna, a vegan non-profit 501C3 farm animal Sanctuary, located in the East Mountains of Tijeras, New Mexico.

My partner Tamara and I, dedicate our lives to being stewards of this beautiful land and guardians to these amazing beings.

I believe that we are all here to be of service, to walk each other and to swim each other home.

With all of the love in my heart, I say “thank you” to all of the beings who trust me with those closest to their hearts.

Every morning when I wake, I ask how  can I be of service to someone else today? How can I make the world better for someone else today? How can I love you through it?

I am blessed and I am gifted and I am thankful. I am so glad you are here! Now let’s get swimming!
