Well, here we are again. Britain has been bathed in glorious sunshine for weeks on end, the temperatures a heady (and head-aching) 30 degrees or more, blue skies with nary a cloud to be seen and a stillness to the trees and shrubs rarely experienced.

Having read Pea Horsley’s book: ‘The Animal Communicator’s Guide through life, loss and love’ I was envious of her ability to be able to talk not only to Morgan, who became her guide, but to all animals, whether living or in the spirit world. Wouldn’t life be a lot happier if we could communicate with our pets on a daily basis so that we could know their likes and dislikes, their needs, etc.?

I can remember reading a poignant story some time back about a dog who was being rehomed. His human Dad had been a soldier and he’d written a moving letter ‘to whom it may concern’ in the event of his death and his dog having to find a new home. Usually, when animals are taken into rescue homes/charities etc. they are automatically given a name – usually associated with where they were found, or the circumstances they were in. This dog had been misbehaving and there had been talk that he would have to be euthanized because he was deemed to be unsafe.

Then the letter was found and his life was turned around. Why? Because finally the rescuers knew his real name and once the dog was called by it – then his entire behaviour changed for the better.

I wonder how many cats and dogs are returned to the rescue centres/shelters because of ‘bad’ behaviour when in actual fact, if it were possible to know their ‘real’ name that would make a difference. Wouldn’t it be prudent, therefore, for someone in each facility to go on a communicator’s course so that when animals come in or are surrendered, they can tell their story in their own words?

Just a thought.  Let me know what you think.

Dogs Come when Called

"Dogs come when called. Cats take a message and get back to you."

"Of course, every cat is really the most beautiful woman in the room."
