Hello Dear friends ❤
I’m laying here typing this with my two little loves laying on either side of me. I have two dogs, Kane and Lola. They were both born in Texas and I brought them back to New York with me when I came back home. Kane is actually having a birthday coming up next week on New Years Day, his eleventh birthday!! I can hardly believe my little man is already that old. I’ve had them both since they were six weeks old. Lola is five months younger than Kane, she will turn eleven in May.
There is no better feeling in the world for me than when I am coming home from work from an insanely stressful day as a nurse, and I am greeted with all the love and joy in the world from both of them just because I am simply home from my day. It completely melts all the stress and issues from my day when I see their little faces and wagging tails running to the door to greet me ❤ ❤ ❤
It’s funny, but if a person doesn’t like my dogs just by looking at them or are automatically afraid of them, I instantly know there’s something not right spiritually with that person. But, if one of my dogs doesn’t like a person, if they growl at them as they pass or bark at them, same thing, I know that something isn’t right with that person.
Animals have a very clear sense of right and wrong, pure and impure, truth and lying. I remember clearly with my ex, the one that caused me to leave Texas and come back to New York, if he would go to kiss me hello or goodbye or even hug me, Kane would bark at him and would literally lay on top of me and block him from getting to me. Kind of funny to think about, but Kane knew long before I did that something wasn’t right about that situation.
You see, animals have a keen sense of things, and can see and feel clearly what the truth is about a person in their core. Fakeness and lies and acts don’t apply here, they are useless and do not work when it comes to animals and their feelings about a person. They know right away whether you have a mask on or not.
When I was going through everything a few years ago and was dealing with the whirlwind that became 2017 for me when I came back to New York, if I didn’t have my babies with me, I have no idea what I would have done. I was broken and wrecked back then, and had no idea if I was ever going to feel like myself again. I was coming out of a very abusive relationship back then, and that was why I fled Texas to come back to New York. In hindsight, I’m very sure that I ended up in the last relationship I did because he was the same in many ways than my first ex and that was why I felt so comfortable in that situation. I’ve been doing my best to forgive myself for allowing myself to yet again be put in that spot, but it’s getting better with time.
This was me back then. You can see clearly the pain and sadness that was still in my eyes. It was a rough time for all three of us, myself and the dogs. I actually had to have them boarded for six weeks when I first came back to New York, their vet is also a boarding place. Because of the nature of the circumstances and because I had to leave literally in the middle of the night to prevent him from knowing because he would’ve done anything he could to stop me, I had nothing set up prior to me leaving. I didn’t have my nursing license transferred yet, I didn’t have an apartment, I didn’t have a job, I didn’t have my vehicle registration transferred to New York, I started from literally a blank slate when I came back. So naturally, I couldn’t keep the dogs with me while I was staying with family until I got everything settled. But, I still went and visited them while they were boarded and walked them everyday. It broke my heart to leave them every time I had to go 😦 and it broke their hearts too
I remember like it was yesterday, when we went to finally bring them home for good once I signed the lease for my apartment, the pure joy and excitement that they felt. To this day, if we stay in the car for longer than ten minutes they start to get a little nervous. And if they have to go to the vet, which is the same place they were boarded, they are ALWAYS thrilled when we get back in the car to go back home, LOL
I will write more on this in next article my dear friends ❤
Sending you MAJOR love and light and healing focus ❤
