I hope that everyone had a good time at the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show. The dog shows always gives us a new direction to think about for our FFBFs. Clothing, head or hair attire, polishes for nails, well get the idea?
Our FFBF has not always in history been the light of our life. They have been our emotional supporter, protector and income provider to name just a few; however, mostly through all the years they have shown unconditional love. Once, we have accepted them for who and what they are, we receive the best friendship one could ask for. They do not judge, although, they may show a dislike for something or someone. They are a kind of guide for us to have as we journey down the path of life.
When an animal shows a negative response to something or someone, we should listen. It may not be a sixth sense; perhaps it is a power they have fine-tuned or cultivated, however, they are rarely wrong. There are many stories of the courage and love attributed to pets and animals of all kinds. Probably the most glaring are those of animals which seem to sense a health change in a person. This is not attributed to just the person they live with but to others they come in contact with. One such cat was named Oscar. His tales and life reproduced for using book by David Dosa, M.

We must learn that we are not the only ones who can learn what is best. Pets have some more highly tuned senses than their human counterparts. There is also the knowledge which animals possess some more fundamental knowledge than us. My Golden Retriever is a therapy dog who accompanies me to visit many of my clients. Although she is not trained to sense any diseases, with one client she did and although a total surprise to me, she was right on each time. I take a back seat to her intuition now.
