Furry Words

By Sara Moore | Nov 01, 2019

Welcome to November! Summer isn’t too far in the rearview mirror, and I’m still trying to wrap my head around the cooler months ahead. I have so much to be thankful for and have been reminded how many of you have become friends over the past ten years. My father passed away at the end of July, and the outpouring of support and love has been surreal. Thank you all! It has been a bit strange being the one going through the grieving process; I’m usually the one helping others through it and it’s been humbling. That being said, life is slowly returning to normal, and I’m grateful to have a job that I love. Here are as many of your questions as I could answer in this column. Enjoy!

Amy R. asked what Bernie thinks of his new life in Maine and if he previously lived with kids? This dog is in heaven! He LOVES Maine! Oh my goodness, wait until he gets to play in snow! The word fabulous really may have been created to describe how he feels about himself and his life. I do think he lived with kids, which is why if you’re hustling around, he knows to get out of the way. He got in trouble for being underfoot and does his best to avoid that to this day.

Bambi S. asked if Bub was in pain and if he was comfortable. The first thing I get is my right shoulder is sore. I have no idea if this image is going to make sense to you, but I see a giant boar or pig, who loves being lazy and loves being loved without having to earn any of it. He also jokes that he doesn’t want to overdo, which justifies his laziness but isn’t helping his health. At least he owns it?!

Diane H’s dog Roxie has passed, and she wants to know if it is really her that visits us? Oh my goodness I’m absolutely covered in goose bumps, and I see Roxie bouncing all around to get your attention! As soon as she has it, she trots away, looking for a treat. I love her energy, and she’s so proud to have been able to get your attention. Yes, she is visiting and kudos to you for being open to it!

Jeri M. had Ellie, who is now deceased. “Did she know we were going to come back and loved her?” Yes, she did know that, and you have never held back any love to a person or animal, regardless of the situation you found them in. I also hear that you’ve rescued animals from some pretty horrific situations, but you have never judged the person who may have neglected them, because you are fully aware that each of us has our own struggles. Ellie has a wise sense of peace about her, and she’s looking forward to being reunited with you when your time comes. You are both familiar to each other.

Michelle P. had Jazzy and she asked if she forgives them. Jazzy wants to give you an earful! Forgiving you was not anything on her radar because she said you did nothing wrong. I’m hearing Billy Joel’s song with the lyrics, “I’m just a victim of circumstance….” I think it’s the song My Life, but I’m not sure. Jazzy’s response is, “Are you serious? For all you’ve been through and all that is still yet to come, THIS is the worry that you allow to rattle around in your brain? You were always fair, honest, and just with me, and you know as well as I do that life played out as it was meant to. Take the worry surrounding this situation and put it into making your life even better for you and those you love.” Jazzy is fully at peace and hopes that you can be as well.

Lisa O. wants to know if her dog Cisco is comfortable now and if there’s more that she can do? I feel sleepy but comfortable. When he shows me going from sleeping to standing, it’s like watching a large horse slowly get up, but once he gets his balance and bearings, he’s good to go. I get a no, there is nothing more you can do for him, and he greatly appreciates you being his person and advocate.

Lisa R’s dog Hadley is deceased, and she wants to know if she’s still here with her and to let her know she misses her. I hear a huge YES, she is still around you, but I also have a smile that spreads across my face as I answer you. Hadley did not like being woken up at all! She can curl herself in a ball just like a cat would, and when I tapped in to her, she was laying on her side, did a stretch that made her look like a sideways horseshoe, and yawned. She never fully opened her eyes and went right back to snoozing.

Sheila A. has a dog named Karma. “Does she understand when I talk to her? Is she Montana reincarnated?” Oh she understands you, but sometimes you say things that make no sense! She does better when you talk to her like she’s an adult versus a small child. I don’t think she’s Montana, but Montana’s energy is always around you, so that’s why you feel her. When I say that, it’s not just when you’re at home. Montana is and will forever be your protector no matter where you are.

Just a reminder that a psychic reading is not a replacement for licensed veterinary care. If I didn’t answer your question or you’d like to learn more about what was relayed, feel free to schedule a reading at on the Online Booking page. As always, I offer a discounted Rescue Readings for animals that have been rescued. The more you know about them, the more you can help them adjust to being a part of your pack!
