Doo & Austin's mom here..I wrote this entry in the wee hours this morning. I'm still very skeptical. Nothing pertains specifically to Austin and Doo, everything can apply to any dog family. I liked her and she was very personable, its just I'm not sure she's really "communicating" with the dogs. Without further ado, here's what all everyone "said".
Lisa, the animal communicator, was here for 3 hours yesterday. She said both dogs are very happy here and love me, each other and love their home. One of my main questions was is Doo in any pain. She said she's is occasionally, but not from the tumor, but from her liver. Its tender. (Me telling you all...Remember she has no muscles per se from the prednisone and her stomach hangs down like a cow's stomach that needs milking, without the udders, of course.) Its her liver (which is constantly enlarged) that makes it difficult for her to get comfortable which is why she is constantly changing places and makes it hard for her to get on the couch any more without help and hard for her to get in the car (jumping into it). (I keep my car in the garage, and since its so difficult for her, I bring the car down to the end of the driveway in the alley so she just has a small jump and I'm helping her by grasping on her harness and lifting her up.)
She said Austin is the more talkative of the two and he's always messing with her to keep her spirits up. She said Doo is very strong willed and that she's dealing with her illness with no problems. She said Doo worries about both Austin and I when she leaves, but she said she got NO indication that its going to be anytime soon.
I asked about Austin not being affectionate and she said it was because he was never taught affection, giving or receiving. I told her how he exhales the breath he is holding when I give him kisses. She said don't kiss him on his face or head and try kissing him on his side where I'm not comng at him from above. (We're thinking he might have been hit in the face or on his head which is why he flinches all the time when I go to give him kisses.) She also suggested I get on the floor at his level to put on his harness. Once again not being over him. She slso recommended I get something called "Rescue Remedy" or another one called "FES - Animal Relief Formula", which will calm him down. (Put it in their water.)
She said Austin is concerned about Doo. He doesn't understand exactly what's happening, he just knows things are different and both are dealing with things how they are. She said that Doo gets frustrated cause she can't do things like she used to. She said her medicines make her woozy so its hard for her to stand up from a laying position sometimes. She also said Doo said I over react (ya think?!!) And I need to back off some.
So there you have it. What do you all think?
Very interesting Lou Ann. I kind of agree with you as she really didn't tell you anything that wouldn't pertain to my dog family. And yes, I over react to what my dogs are up to or feeling also.
More information you already knew! When Doo is in pain, she lets you know, you know this. You are a good Mom, you should know this, Doo and Austin are constant reminders of your L O V E!
Hmmmm...i 'gwee wif Sophie Cwaire an' Anya. Dis r all jus' gud sense witch yu hab in abundance, Miss Wou Ann! We hab heered 'bout Wescue Wemedy. Sum peeples use it on dere pupses an' kitties. sum peeples use it on dere own selbes! Cood be werf a twy!?! I dunno.
Yeah Z-pup, I'm going to get some of that Rescue Remedy and try it. She suggested I use it on myself when I'm trying to get Austin's harness on. Anything's worth a try so he won't be so stressed when he goes to the vet.
I am usually skeptical about such things, but on the other paw, not everything she said could pertain to every dog family since we dogs do have different personalities and not all humans who love dogs are alike. It is probably just common sense she used because a lot of psychics are good are "reading" their customers. However, Mommy has tarot cards (no, she is not psychic), and sometimes they can be amazingly accurate so who knows? If the communicator makes your humans feel better, it was worth the cost. However, I don't think it is money that needs to be spent often. I think I would prefer my humans spend their money on dingo bones and bacon!
That rescue remedy is actually quite good, and well accepted. Growlmy uses a formula from them to help her sleep...
I do notice that when I have stress, the dog or even the cats have different behaviors than normal. They do feel our emotions, I think.
Have a good week, and keep on keeping on.
When we talked to a pet communicator at a dog thing we were at, I didn't really believe but was just curious and did it for fun. To this day I am still amazed at what she told us. One thing was that, one of the things that one of the dogs liked was laying next to dad on the floor watching tv every night. How could she have known that's exactly what my husband and Sammy Jo did. She also said Sammy and Toby are so closely bonded she couldn't tell which she was getting information from or if it was both. Another thing she said was that, there is a place we take them, but not everyday, and they know the landmarks and they love to go there. She thought that it was probably walking around the neighborhood but we knew right away that she was talking about Shaggy Pines Dog Park. That is where we take them and we usually went once or twice a week, not everyday just like she said. And then we told her that we had another dog that we would like to go get and bring him back. He was at the groomer at the time so he wasn't with us. She said is he mostly white? JoJo is blond, not really white but close enough that when people mention him they usually say "the white one". I still don't know if I really believe but, there's no way she could have known some of the things she told us. It's a mystery to me!
