Hello my friends! I’m sitting here waiting for the woodstove to get cranking so my fingers and toes can warm up. Wasn’t it just pool season? I do love autumn and have enjoyed snuggling in oversized sweaters and warm socks. I have also loved seeing some of your pups dressed in their comfy clothes too! Years ago, I thought it was so rude to dress your pet up, but when I started chatting with them, I realized so many of them are THRILLED to strut their stuff and flaunt the high fashion sense they have. Better them than me! I’m excited to answer some of your pup questions and remind you that a psychic reading is not a replacement for licensed medical care, so please always consult with a vet if any medical insights are relayed.
Lisa R. asked about her puppy Cali. “We are new to each other, and I’d like to know what she wants me to know.” Oh, I love this dog so much!!! She is so stinking sweet, and when I ask her how she’s doing, I get an image of her staring into your eyes as if she just hit the lottery, and I do believe she has! She simply wants to be loved. She appreciates your rules and structure, and as I type this, it reminds me of when my son was little. I still wanted him home and in bed at a reasonable hour to set the standard for his older years. That is perfect for her! She prefers a collar to a harness, a treat to a ball, a round bed to a square, and if she needs meds, she’d rather have them tucked in some cream cheese instead of peanut butter. She may be the first dog to say it’s not her favorite! If you see this, I’d love for you to email me a picture of her because the love you both have for each other is undeniable.
Mary P. has a six-year-old pitbull/boxer mix. She asked if Brody wants them to remove the lump on his leg. This answer fluctuated for me, which means there are a few variables at play. It doesn’t feel cancerous (check with your vet though!), it isn’t stuck to the muscle, and his skin is loose enough around it that it doesn’t look like it’s close to rupturing. Would draining it work? No and the dog just looked at me like I’m an idiot. Fair enough. Does heat or cold make it feel better? Heat loosens it up, and the cool helps it contract afterwards. I think he’s showing me cryotherapy of some sort. I saw an ad where people do this to freeze off fat cells. Dear Lord, I am out of my wheelhouse on this! So, I will go with NO. At this time he doesn’t want it removed. If it gets crusty or bloody, it will need to be removed, and it looks like it will be a pretty decent amount of tissue that goes with it.
Tracy A. has Grace, a beautiful dog with a very high prey drive. “Will she ever respond to recall?” Ugh. Nope. This dog is like a biathlete who trains hard, has laser focus, and will always be in shape. I also get the feeling of a middle-aged CEO of a fortune 500 company who takes himself very seriously, and when he gets a chance to run he is going to take it because no one tells him what to do. I wish I could say yes, but I’m only hearing no right now!
Kim C. wants to know about Gracie. She’s a thirty-pound rescue that is black and tan. “Why do you eat poop?” She also asked about Murphy, a two hundred twenty-pound Mastiff. “Why did you pick us? Gracie eats poop because you have so much on your plate that the last thing you need to do is walk outside at night and step in it. Gross! My dog does the same, and I’m ready to call an animal communicator to help me! LOL! As for Murphy, you were the lesser of evils, but then he bursts out laughing. The reality is you know how to stay in your lane, only take on the drama that you’re getting paid to sort through, and you like your alone time. The level of respect you show him and others is why he chose you. He has a very dry sense of humor because he ends with, “It’s about time you showed up.”
Nakia C. asked about Oscar, a Shih Tzu who passed over. “Is he doing OK and feeling happy and not lonesome? Does he ever peek in on me and if so, what should I look for?” Oh my goodness, he’s not lonesome at all! You have darling loved ones over there, and he’s really busy trying to keep up with them! Life with you was way quieter, but he loves both here and there. When you think of him, it’s because he’s energetically around you. He’s there a LOT! Look for little flashes of light in your periphery or when you swear you feel him. You do. He’s showing me a blue piece of ribbon, not sure if that means anything to you?
