There’s no love like dog love! As a young child I felt connected to animals, primarily dogs, cats and horses. I was attracted to their unconditional love and spent hours with my pets.
Everyday is a great day with a dog. No matter where I have been or how tired I am, I open that door to four sets of legs who are thrilled that I am home. They tell me with their voices, their body language and their physical contact.
For years I have seen Andrew Krichels almost every week at his studio and therefore enjoyed the energy of Kip the Collie Lama. Before Kip, there was Sarah who literally would position herself inside the circle in the final stages of Pilates class or under the table during energy work. Kip who just left the planet yesterday and Sarah helped keep the energy just right for meditation.
Their presence kept me present!
The Collie Lama is pictured today on my Worth Healing Facebook page with Andrew. Take a look you will see the love!
Featured on today’s musing are Bedford, Bullet and Katie. Bedford is very much on the planet and always ready for fun or a snuggle. Bullet who badly needed an advocate and a change of venues has taught me much about the sensitive nature of a dog who has been abused and feral for over a year. Gaining his trust requires patience and a very gentle approach. He has come a long way and would not be an ideal pet for most people, but he is a happy addition to our household.
Katie who is pictured here was in charge of the Barn at Aden Branch Farm. Katie was bilingual and responded to hand signals as well as treats. Katie greeted each visitor to the farm warmly, with respect and some reserve. Katie could not be coaxed into the farm manager’s house, she had to guard the barn and the horses. Even in her advanced years, she would only enjoy a few hours in the heated bathroom, before returning to her post. She warmly greeted me every time I came to the farm.
Wouldn’t it be great if humans could act more like dogs? Is it a goal? or maybe a dream?
