LOLLIPOP’S DR. LISA DUCKY

On Lolli’s TWO chairs in our theater she sits on back and forth (beside the chase with me :), I had her Dr. Lisa Ducky (given to her from Dr. Lisa her foster mommy for her trip down from Los Angeles to be adopted by us), her Daddy Ducky and her Momma Ducky – all lined up against one chair’s arm. Snickers taught her how to dig the blankets messing them up into a nest and then laying on them. A few nights ago when she did this, the Dr. Lisa Ducky fell to the floor and she hadn’t noticed. I communicated to her saying, “Lolli OMGosh, you knocked your Dr. Lisa ducky on the floor, did you mean to do that? Do you want to leave it all by itself on the floor?” She looks at me, gets up from the other chair, jumps down, finds her Dr. Lisa Ducky on the floor, wads it into her mouth gently (the only toy she’s never unstuffed….unstuffing taught to her by her bro Snicks), jumps back up onto the chair with it, sets it besides her gently and then falls asleep.

She loves her foster mommy Dr. Lisa! 🙂

And just to confirm, it’s not “just” the toy, it’s the toy when we brought Lolli up for a reunion to her rescuers, that we had Dr. Lisa hold the whole visit while together. Then when we bought in the bags of stuff from the car the next morning and put them on the floor, Lolli dug into all the bags and found her Dr. Lisa Ducky > ran to the couch > laid it next to her in a content state and fell asleep.

For all you rescuers, adopters and fosters – know the true impact you have on the baby’s hearts you save. ❤

Amazing Gracie

Back in 2013, I was contacted to talk to a little cat who was always under the bed, always scared and hiding.  Understandably so, the poor baby had to have inhaler medication given to her daily.  Cats startle easily anyway, but to have a mask placed over her face while waiting for a button to be pushed and a loud sound and strong mist of medicine directed into her nose with a loud sound “PISHHHHT” – very scary!

Gracie was the shyest little girl you could imagine with such a small scared little voice, she almost spoke in a whisper.  She just pulled at my heart.  Like so many pets, thinking this was being done “to” her versus to “help” her.

After explaining this to her, that helped, a lot.  But it didn’t help as much as I really would have liked it to for her and her mom & dad.  Especially since they were the ones that had to do this for her and it was heartbreaking for them seeing her fear about it and her reaction to them.

When I first “met” little shy, scared sweet Gracie under the bed from her mom’s photo…

So what to do, hmmmm?  Okay, I thought.  Let’s try telling her how brave she really is.  How smart she is and that I know she understands this medicine helps her.  And that’s what her and I talked about several times – her and how absolutely amazing she is.  And you know what?  She blossomed into that brave and very understanding girl!  Then, as we continued having sessions together, her personality started to emerge even more now that she didn’t have to be afraid.  She even allowed a pet sitter to administer the meds to her when her parents were out of town, after we talked together, that she was brave enough to do this.  Proudness burst from our hearts for this little BIG brave girl!

After all these years of talking together (I’m grateful to her mom for that), Gracie has become (as well as her mom) a very dear soul in my life and I’m hugely blessed to know them both as well as her lovingly protective brother cat Danny and sweet loving sister doggy Molly.

She even blossomed physically after communication…

Gracie recently crossed over and although I still talk to her and she comes to talk to me (as well as talking to her for her mom and dad); I still tear up.  Earth is missing a pure-pure angel here and she’s blessing them in heaven.

I never met her in person since they live in another state than I, but you don’t need to when you meet heart to heart.  And she definitely has my heart, Miss Amazing Gracie, I love you.Screen Shot 2019-02-04 at 4.15.24 PM.png

The Gift

https://chatswithanimals.wordpress.com/2016/09/26/the-gift/

Am I Crazy?!? I Keep Hearing My Departed Dog’s Collar Jingling!

One of my client’s dog’s crossed over a month ago.  She asked for my opinion or to share any thoughts on what she was experiencing.  So in case anyone reading this has too, I wanted to share.

She kept hearing her angel dog’s distinctive bark when he wanted to go outside to pee in the morning after she was up.  And at night when in bed, she’d hear the distinct jingle of his collar tags in the room (a sound completely different from her other dog’s collar that only has 1 tag, it doesn’t jingle and who is sitting with her). 

She said and asked me, “I know I feel more connected to my dog than I do most people, but am I going insane?” 

Nope, she’s not.  I had the same experience.  My dog Corke who was murdered and who gave me the gift of animal communication, did that for me.  I hadn’t learned animal communication yet, but I had just started going down every road that I could to have someone reach him for me.  He knew how badly I needed to connect with him even if just for one more time. 

At night too many times to count, I’d be in my car driving away from home, with the guy I was seeing at the time, and I’d hear Corke’s distinctive collar jingle.  Not even thinking, I’d quickly look in the back seat expecting to see him.  Of course Corke wasn’t there, but the guy with me would hear it loud and clear every single time too!  To boot, Corke had never been in that car let alone the home I lived at then. 

I’m right there with her too on how close we are to our pets vs. people.  This was my old expression when I ran into guys that were not nice or respectful to my love of my pets or animals when I was dating, ”If I had a dog in my life when I met you, I wouldn’t have ever dated you!!!”  When I met my current husband and started falling in love with him, I wasn’t thinking how it would come across when I told him, “I love you as much as I love Snickers (my current dog)!”  And right after thought, ohhhh that wasn’t cool to say, yikes!  And, how I knew he was the one for me…he says, “Really, you do love me that much!?”  He got IT + me and Snickers! 🙂

Corke, My Little Angel

Having A Pet Is Suppose To Mean Forever…

I wanted to share this sweet little boy’s story. His name is SANTEE and he’s 18 years old.

I had my session with him and I have to share he is the happiest, most pure innocent hearted and loving boy!

Now, when you read all he’s been through in life, he’s TRULY amazing that his heart is still so loving and happy. Blessings to you Santee and to the sweet family who adopted you knowing your worth & beauty to this world!!! ❤

“Thank you for the readings on my babes! I wanted to share a bit about Santee. He was rescued years ago with injuries from being hit by a car, he has buck shot throughout his body, had heartworm, and later he was hit by a golf cart and suffered 2 collapsed discs, he walks with weak extremities and a humped spine, he also had a portion of his bowel resected due to a blockage!!!! Right now he is deaf and partially blind. His owners worked long hours and the husband decided he was too much trouble so the wife asked me to take him to save him. He still wags his tail, lifts his nose to the wind, can usually make it outside to go to the bathroom and enjoys his food immensely! We no longer call him Stinky Pete McGee because we had his teeth cleaned and the new food has replaced his oily, dandruffy fur with a really healthy thick coat. You gave me reassurance that he still has a purpose here on earth and is not ready to leave!”

Wanted to add too, that when I told my sweet husband about talking to him and Santee being deaf, my husband chatted back…made me tear up with happy tears. 🙂

CAUTION: If You Stay At A Hotel With Your Pet(s)

Sadly, a lady who was staying at the Motel 6 in Mission Valley many weeks ago, had the saddest lesson.
 
Someone there, let her dog out of the room while she was away. It was running all over the busy frontage road and even busier freeway.
 
She gets a call from police saying her dog was loose, got hit by a car and died. Her beautiful German Shepard gone.
 
Telling the front desk is no guarantee your room will be left unattended by staff per your direction. The pet can run past them before they even finish opening the door.
 
For a cost of about $30 and a sign attached to the door, this could have saved her beautiful pooch more than likely.
 
I made this sign, keep it in a plastic page saver and tape it to the door + tell the front desk AND maid service NOT to go in my room + keep a gate in the way of the door in case it IS opened. But, even a pop up kennel or pen works better (especially for cats who can jump easily over gates).

Happy 10 Years Lollipop – thank God for all who rescued you!

Today, the lady who’s yard Lollipop wandered into, Facebook messaged me the initial Baldwin post asking…

“I don’t know if you ever saw this posting of her?”

I had never seen it!  Oh this made me cry!  Our poor baby girl went through so much, and due to her rescuers, was able to blossom into the beautiful girl she was already inside.

(I found this lady a few years ago because someone from The Bill Foundation remembered her name.  Searched for her on Facebook, out of several people with the same name, found one with several dog pictures posted, so knew for sure I found the right person.  Yea, she was and overjoyed to see and hear about Lollipop now.)

The lady who found her had 3 large dogs and couldn’t afford to keep her too, so she took her to the Baldwin Shelter.  Then, she called The Bill Foundation begging them to get her out and help her.  When one of The Bill Foundation workers went there to get her, no one could find her because she was in the male dog section.  They kept showing pictures of her to the workers and volunteers and finally after time, one recognized her.  She was taken out of this shelter and given the care she desperately needed.

She was taken to a vet that helps the Foundation.  She was in such poor shape, she needed 2 solid months of medical care.  Working so long with her, the vet fell in love with her and became her foster mommy.

Six months later…my little rescue dog Snickers’ foster mommy tagged me her adoption photo on Facebook saying, “Who does she look like?” We drove up to Santa Monica to meet this little girl who was then called Carly and the rest is history.  We changed her name to Lollipop.

We chose 5/20, her rescue date, as her birthday. Happy birthday my sweet love, and bless all those who helped you get rescued!

So thank you Annie Hart/Rescue From the Hart, Eldad Hagar/Hope for Paws, Ja-Shin/The Bill Foundation, Dr. Lisa/vet & Cindy D/Snickers’ foster mom.
We love you ALL and are forever grateful to have our little Poodle Princess!  ❤

We keep in contact with them and keep them updated with Lolli’s cute photos and videos that they love to see.  Even went up to Santa Monica for her to see all her rescuers again a few years ago!  We plan to again too.

So the reason I’m posting this blog?  Is you never know what a simple sharing of a Facebook tag can mean to the life of an animal or all the people who’s lives they touch in the process.

This is the original Baldwin post and video of “A male poodle – Finnigan” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZscD547xQo.
