“No, Missy’s not in pain,” the Dog Whisperer told my friend. “It sometimes bothers her, but she is not in pain."
The Dog Whisperer then asked Missy if there was anything she wanted to tell her “mom.”
“Yes. I really like going to day care and playing with Riley. But there is dog there who is very sick and needs help. I don’t know her name, but she is the one who is always picked up by her dad.”
The Dog Whisperer related this to my friend, who validated that yes, she takes Missy to Doggy Day Care occasionally and yes, there is a dog there named Riley who Missy plays with and seems to be her best friend, "but no, I don't know of a dog who is always picked up by her dad or a dog who is sick, but I'll try and find out."
The Dog Whisperer continued, “and Missy wants you to know she doesn’t like her collar. She wants a pink one with bling.”
My friend chuckled, and left the session and decided to go buy a new dog collar. She found a pink one with bling; it had a big bow on the collar.
When my friend pulled the new collar out of the bag, she reported how Missy went nuts, she was so excited! With the new pink bling collar, Missy seemed to prance around the house as if she was showing off diamonds.
The next time Missy went to Doggy Day Care, my friend inquired about a dog who may be ill and is always picked up by "her dad." The owner of Doggy Day Care thought a minute and said, “Oh, I know who you mean, that’s Cindy, and is owned by a gay couple. They took Cindy to the vet recently and Cindy was diagnosed with cancer. There was nothing they could do for her and had to put her down. She was very sick.”
After Missy's visit at Doggy Day Care, the owner walked with them out to the car. He stopped, looked down and talked to Missy at her level. He said, "thank you for telling your mom about Cindy being sick. Yes, she was very sick, and there was nothing more that could be done for her. Missy died and won't be coming back to Doggy Day Care. You did all you could for her, too. That was very kind of you to try and help her." My friend said that Missy seemed to absorb this information, and then jumped into the car and they drove home.
This story reminds me how there is so much more to subtle energy and how it can be used to help with nonverbal communication. I’m reminded how expansive the communication palette can be and how there are some who seem to be sensitive to the nonverbal communication and can interpret messages from animals. Subtle energy is pretty remarkable.
