At last  had the right name.  Still, there were a few other things to discuss. This woman had another dog that was close to her husband.  She’d wanted Rosie to be “her” dog and she was a little anxious about it.  Not only was the dog ignoring her person, she was also physically distant, aloof. Well I […]

She was a dear dog.  They were dear people.  Adopted at 12 years, she was a good fit for their family but there was just one thing: she didn’t respond to her name.  Ever.  They’d had her a month and wasn’t that long enough for her to get used to it? In theory it might […]

Returning clients needed a touch-up on their 5-ish lab mix.  Stanley. I skimmed the email and I thought, oh, it’s just a training problem!  I’ll be there 5 minutes  then I’ll give them a referral.  Now, this is an ego problem.   My ego was “helping” me see I wasn’t really qualified and rather than embarrass […]

I’ve been pondering reincarnation .  .  .  I often talk to clients whose pets are dying.  I also hear from many who are missing a deceased pet.  In other words, it keeps coming up.  (Get it?  Reincarnation?  Keeps coming up?  Of course you do!  You’re very bright.)

I met the dog and found her enchanting.  A canine in charge of her destiny, it seemed […]

Here’s an example of how pets help us in not-so-obvious ways. In my early days I was hired to help a woman with her dog. It seemed Rover had suddenly begun to lick at himself and as time went on his fur began to thin until finally he was bald in spots. Food was replaced, […]

Clients are asking how to do what I do.  Sometimes I say, you already know how. We all do; I believe that what I call clairvoyance is just another sense, along with hearing, seeing, touch, smell and taste.  It’s not accepted as “normal” in this country, although I’m pretty sure that’s changing fast. On the […]

Speaking of the gifts our pets bring us, there’s a popular genre out there but it’s very specific.   It’s called “Animals as Healers” and the mascot is a dog with a halo, gazing into the setting sun.  Precious for sure, but it so misrepresents the hard work our pets do every day, to help us […]

I went to watch the demo with the police dog.  His person calls him Deputy ________ so I guess technically he rolls with the Sheriff but any way you looked at it the dog was impressive. Being around this dog was like being in the presence of a person who’s unusually, highly motivated.  That motivation […]
