Many of you may have heard of reiki, but are not quite sure what it is. I have been offering reiki energy to animals and people for over 15 years.
Many people say that “dogs don’t have a sense of time.” If you live with a dog, I bet you don’t believe that for a second.
I don’t think all dog parks are good or bad. I wanted to be open-minded and give Beau a chance to make some friends in our new city. Good goal. Poor execution.
We work hard to get our canine friends to understand what we are saying. It’s equally important to understand their perspective and what they’re saying to us.
Do you think dogs understand spoken word? Do you think they can communicate through thought? Or only body language?
These days, we sometimes refer to ourselves as our dogs’ “guardians” yet we are still called “owners.” But none of us can really own another living thing.
Even if you do not normally read poetry, I recommend you read Mary Oliver. She has a way of saying things directly and eloquently with few words.
When I got Beau as a puppy, mornings were the best time. As the day went on, it seemed he always managed to do something that tried my patience.
Dogs, just like people, lose endurance, muscle mass, and develop arthritis in their joints. The difference is that they won’t be able to tell you directly.
