Hello my friends! How is the summer coming to a close already? Do I say this every year? Probably! My summer has been productive but with far fewer beach days and a garden that produced as much mold as veggies due to all the rain. The flip side is I still have eaten plenty of tomato and cucumber sandwiches without living in the kitchen processing food for the winter. Remind me in January that I felt relief in September while I’m craving fresh garden sauce.
When I started this career as a psychic for people and pets, I was not thinking of the trauma some animals endure, which was in my face as a result of Hurricane Katrina having just happened. This reading pulled at my heartstrings but also had a profound message for the owner. Once again, I want to remind you that a reading is not a replacement for licensed veterinary care, but information that can be used to complement it.
I got a frantic message from a client I read years ago asking for help with her dog that had suddenly attacked her after three years of being a mush. She was in her yard with a friend and with the dog lazing in the grass beside her. He suddenly gave her “the look” where his eyes went vacant, his body posture was threatening, and he started stalking toward her. She said that when she first got him, he’d react aggressively out of fear around big men, but never to her and not in years. That day he attacked her so severely she ended up in the hospital. She called me because she needed to know what had happened and what she should do moving forward. He was in a ten-day quarantine, and she was struggling with giving him one more chance at life or having him euthanized before the quarantine was over. If he attacked again, his brain would have to be submitted for a rabies test, which is not a pretty process.
I tapped into his energy, and he was so apologetic for his behavior but he also said there was something wrong with the wiring in his brain and he had 100% tried to kill her. She was sobbing and said that she fully believed that if he had gotten her to the ground before her friend saved her, he wouldn’t have stopped. I agreed. She wanted to keep him and others safe, and if it was his time to go, she wanted to give him a day of bliss before sending him on his way over the rainbow bridge. That option meant finishing quarantine and then being released to her custody. He told her he couldn’t safely have that day and asked to be released from his body. My heart ached for her. My psychic brain knew he was being honest and clear, but it just didn’t seem fair.
I asked him to describe what was going on in his brain so she could consult with a vet for a final piece of input before making a decision. He showed me a part of his brain that looked like an octopus with its arms spread out but very short. In the middle there was what looked like a blood blister that had been growing, and it was pressing on part of his brain and causing his mental breakdown. I’m not a veterinarian so I can only relay what I see, but it made sense. She went in to say goodbye a few days later. I asked what the lesson was in this, and the response resonated with her. She’s spent her whole life fighting for her right to be here. To be loved, worthy, heard, respected, etc. This dog did love her, but when his brain short circuited, she needed to ensure both of their safety. He got her through some challenging times, and this was being presented as a situation that validated her strength and integrity. I was surprised to tell her that if this had happened seven years ago, she would have happily left this world, but she had busted her butt and so much good (other than this situation) was surrounding her. She was told to celebrate every second she is here and to find balance by enjoying the life she has created. Not an easy lesson for sure, but hopefully giving him a voice allowed her some peace with a brutal decision. These are the calls that stick with me after and are usually nestled between calls about new puppies and silliness.
