We have two 15-year-old cats.  Without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.   I’d have more money, my house would be cleaner and I wouldn’t know the right words to say when you bury a sparrow. While standing on the neighbor’s lawn, I wouldn’t know how badly I was missed if Maggie […]

We’re hosting a pug, for a week.   On the first day he walked in and took about a thousand running steps in one place on the Pergo floor.   Eventually he got going and set about playing with my two aging and resistant cats.  Six days later, he hasn’t stopped.  I call it The Pug Rodeo. […]

People hire me to communicate with their animals.  It’s a professional exchange, and once the CD is mailed the process is complete.  But I get a thrill from feedback!  Especially when the changes are dramatic. I’d read for a lovely St. Bernard, he was a working dog at a pet food store that I frequent […]

People love the concept of animals as healers and it does not go undocumented on cable TV.  In popular culture, cats save babies from burning buildings as rottweilers bravely alert the authorities.  Precious as these stories are, they in no way represent the real work companion animals are doing every day to help us to […]

I sat down to give a on a puppy; he was one of those big breeds that makes you take a second look but even after you’d adjusted for that he was a bruiser, and clumsy.  The couple thought they might adopt him but there was concern that he was too big and strong for […]
