Furry Words

Hello again! How is your new normal treating you and your four-legged friends? I have started doing office readings, but it was a bit of a shock to have to shower, find a matching outfit, and then look presentable at first! I am still offering them on a limited basis but am focusing more on phone sessions for the foreseeable future. As you’ll see below, I don’t need you or your pup in front of me to give you some psychic insight to what it’s thinking. Standard disclaimer applies: a reading is not a replacement for licensed veterinary care or training. Enjoy!

Jenn L. wants to know what’s going through her Chihuahua/Terrier mix’s mind. Holy smokes what isn’t!! If this dog were a human, it would have the television, radio and phone all going at the same time. It may look quiet but it’s not! Imagine what a red squirrel is thinking as it darts all over the yard. The same holds true for sweet Luna!

Caryn P. asked about Tucker, a Rottweiler/ Border Collie mix. “Are you feeling OK or are you just bored?” When I tap into Tucker’s energy, I feel a bit distant and dreamy. So often the animals show us a reflection of ourselves, so I have to wonder what are you wishing for that you haven’t received yet? Imagine Cinderella in the castle wistfully looking off to the faraway lands, wondering what they hold for her. Now in your life, what is just out of reach but very much in the realm of possibility? Go after it! You’ll see Tucker perk up like he heard you think it out loud!

Laura G. asked about Jeeze, a Sheltie, and wants to know why he has developed a little limp. First, I have to say that I love the way all these dogs are answering today; it’s a little different than normal and very interesting! You know when you go to a buffet and there are all the desserts? You may eat more than you should and feel totally stuffed. Well, he was thrilled to have more outdoor time (without rain, high heat, and black flies) and as he puts it, he overdid it. Check out his hip because it feels like that’s where the pain is originating from. I don’t think it’s anything major but check with your vet if he’s not better by now!

Stephanie M. has Paedar, a soft-coated Wheaten Terrier. She’d like to know how he’s feeling. I feel like he’s doing more panting than usual when he’s sleeping, and it’s not a factor of the heat. He is also a bit tired, so if he used to go everywhere with you, maybe reduce it to only the extra special trips. He has such handsome eyes, and he sure does love you! Can you take a close-up picture of his face please? He loves that, and you’ll cherish it forever.

Leah H. has Caramel and wants to know why all of a sudden it is so afraid of thunderstorms when it has never been a problem before. OK, don’t shoot the messenger. “I wanted more attention!” This dog has been spoiled by you and LOVES it, but I feel like it overheard you talking about a friend’s dog who freaks out, and Caramel picked up that if a dog shakes and whines, you stop everything to sit with it. Tell it to stop it or simply enjoy the time! I’m not feeling any real anxiety during the storms when I check in.

Benji R. asked about Nanook, a deceased Corgi/Shepherd mix. Holy smokes what a noble dog!!! This dog was all about being present, observing, waiting for the perfect moment, and then making his move. It knew what it brought to the table and people who met it were blessed to have done so, according to Nanook! “Thank you for letting me die with dignity. You knew I was worthy of it, and you let me go. Thank you.”

Becca D. has Odie, a Husky. You know how when we talk for our dogs, we give them funny voices? (Well, I do, and I assume everyone else does… ) Anyway, he sounds pretty silly and not very smart when you talk for him and he agrees that you nailed it! He’d like more Cheetos please, and he loves having cold water in his dish, not warm slippery stuff. LOL!

Bambi K. has Bella, a 16-year-old Shih Tsu. “I just want to know how she's doing being that she’s so old.” Well, she doesn’t seem all there mentally but also doesn’t really mind that! She loves that you talk to her all the time, but if she’s sleeping she’d rather stay asleep than get picked up to chat. Her bones feel a bit achy, and I think she’s spending a fair amount of her sleeping time on the other side. She says when her last tooth falls out, she’s ready.

Kimberly asked if Dude, a black Toy Poodle in heaven is ok even though they aren’t at the farm anymore. I am often asked how animals feel if they’re buried on a property you no longer own. 100% of the time they’re absolutely at peace with that. They came here to accompany you on your journey and moving is usually a positive change that brings you joy! He’s energetically around you, and I do believe you feel him breathing in your ear sometimes.

Cara P. has Duby, a Sheltie. “How are you doing?” Actually, I hear that it’s doing remarkably well!!! It feels like it’s built up some muscles, it is eating well, playing hard, and balancing it all very efficiently! I love being able to tell you that! Has this dog eaten pineapple? I don’t even know if it’s good for dogs, but it is totally requesting it.
