Furry Words February 2023

We’re one month into the new year and January felt more like mud season than winter, so I’m relieved there’s finally some snow on the ground. I expect to mop the floors almost daily in March but greatly appreciate spacing it out during the typically snowy months. So many of your dogs have asked for clothing, specific collars, and go into great detail as to the kind of treats they’d like. I’m going to share some of those stories with you.

When I first started doing psychic readings for dogs and pets, they would ask for very specific colors and patterns. Many of the owners couldn’t understand how a dog could ask for a color if they were color blind or didn’t see the same way we do. I have no idea how it works but it does!! Years ago, there was a dog named Isla who requested a dark blue raincoat, not light blue, not lined, just a simple DARK blue one. She was a massive Great Dane and the owner said she had never been bothered by the rain, but Isla assured her it was simply a fashion statement. I was at a dog show in Cumberland, ME and a vendor a few booths down was selling clothing, collars, and toys. When she got to their booth, the owner explained what had been requested, and unfortunately the vendor said she didn’t bring any raincoats. Isla stood in front of the booth staring at the back wall and wouldn’t move. If a Dane decides not to move, neither are you. Turned out hanging smack dab in the middle of the display was an XXL dark blue unlined raincoat!!   

When the shock wore off for the humans, they happily tried it on her, and that dog absolutely pranced, and you could see the joy in her face! I was reading another dog when I looked up to see the gorgeous girl in her fancy coat walk by me like she was in Paris Fashion week. She not only passed by once, but she also did a high class turn and did it a second time. I was still new to doing this, and even now I can’t help but crack up at the memory!

Another dog, Oliver, was in a pet store with his dog mom Shannon. She brought him in to pick up food and to socialize him. Oliver was a ninety-eight-pound Boxer, Great Pyrenees and Flat Coat Retriever with short coarse hair, a serious face on a boxer head with a huge rib cage, and long skinny legs. It was Pride month, and when they passed a display of rainbow clothing and gear, he stopped and sat down. Shannon thought something was wrong, so she got down next to him and asked him what was up. He stood up and put his nose to the silliest and largest shirt made of all the colors of the rainbow. She asked him if he wanted it, and this boy wiggled like the happiest dolphin leaping out of the ocean.

Not quite believing he’d actually put it on after getting home, she confirmed she could return it and off they went. That boy was the PROUDEST dog I’ve ever seen in my life when he was dressed up! His eyes were almost a cold yellow brown, so his stare down could be intimidating, but at the end of the day, he was just a true fashionista. I love every time she sends me a picture in one of his new outfits. He was as helpful as could be when she put him in his blue fleece pajamas, his teal tight shirt with a hoodie and pouch on the back, and every holiday he gets jazzed up. Trust me, if you saw this boy naked on the street, you wouldn’t believe it unless you saw it for yourself. 

Finally, there was a dog who wanted vegetarian treats. His suggestion was to take a cucumber, slice it lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and fill it with plain yogurt. Then he wanted her to put it back together with the filling inside, freeze it, and slice it into little rounds for him to enjoy on hot days. She was laughing because she was also a vegetarian (he did get traditional dog food) and was happy to oblige. He ended the reading by describing other treats she could make if she wanted to have a little side gig. She thanked him but assured him she had more than enough on her plate already.

If I wasn’t the one saying the crazy things your dogs have asked for and witnessing the results, I don’t think I’d believe it either. This has been the most fun career of my life, and I’m looking forward to helping you connect with your pets in the future!
