  What is a Memorial Session?
 
 A Memorial Session is for those people who wish to contact their animals who have passed away. In general, most of these sessions are done near the time the animal has passed away, although contact can be made later than this.

My clients find that it is a way to ask final questions about their animal’s transition, how and what they are doing now or other final issues. Final messages from their family can also be passed along to the animal that has passed away. For many families, this session provides a great deal of closure on the animal’s life.

Here’s a comment from one of our clients who used this service.

I can't thank you enough. Although the three of us cried our eyes out, you also made us smile for the first time since we lost Garfield. I didn't think Teresa would ever feel like herself again. She has just been so devastated. You did something me or her brother couldn't do. You put a smile on her face. You described our precious Garfield to a tee. Just like with Pucker, you have brought some healing to my family. Teresa just keeps reading it over and over. The tears flow then she smiles. Thank you so much. Hope D. of Bolton Landing, NY
 
If you feel this is something that can help you and your family, please don’t hesitate to contact Animal Connection.

How to Identify a Female Equestrian... 
 
EASY TO LOCATE. She's either off on the horse or out in the barn. 

     
A CULINARY PERFECTIONIST. Checks every section of hay for mold but doesn't blink when she petrifies your dinner in the microwave. 

  
EASY TO OUTFIT. No need for embarrassing visits to uncomfortable little boutiques. You can find all she wears at your local tackstore. 

 
FEATURES A SELECTIVE SENSE OF SMELL. Bitterly complains about sticky-sweet cigar smoke while remaining totally oblivious to the almost visible aroma of her barn boots drying next to the heater. 

 
A DEDICATED CLUB WOMAN, as long as the words "horse" or "riding" appear in its name. 

 
HAS YOUR LEISURE AT HEART. Eliminates grass cutting by turning every square inch of lawn into pasture which, in turn, converts itself into mud. 

 
A MASTER AT MULTIPLICATION. She starts with one horse, adds a companion, and if it's a mare, she breeds it.  

 
AN ENGAGING CONVERSATIONALIST. Can rattle on endlessly about training or breeding. 

 
SOCIALLY AWARE. Knows that formal occasions call for clean boots. 

  
EASY TO PLEASE. A new wheelbarrow, custom boots, or even a folding hoof pick will win her heart forever. 

 


From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
        How our animals perceive the past and future

Have you ever wondered how our animals perceive the past and the future? Well, it is a bit different from how we humans see it.  In general, our animals live for the here and now and don’t do long range planning to consider what will happen in the months to come. Nor do they dwell on the past.

Of course, people don’t have the luxury of not planning for the future, however there still is something to be learned from our animals’ interesting perspective.  Imagine living your life as if today is the most important day there is.  Our animal friends do teach us a good lesson with this thought.

When it comes to the past, our animals have a varied view about this.  Although they consider the here and now where their attention is given, just like us, they are a product of their past. However, some are more influenced by it than others.

Many people ask me to find out about their animal’s unknown history.  This request ranges from curiosity about past events to concern over previous injuries, abuse or training which may cause their animals to have emotional or behavioral issues today.

When discussing this with an animal, I receive a variety of messages.  Some animals tell me that they do not wish to dwell on the past or even discuss it much. It just isn’t important to them. They prefer to concentrate on their life right now.

Other animals feel a need to go into great detail about their past. For many, especially those with emotional issues,  it’s a cleansing process that allows them to finally leave the past behind, so they can concentrate on their current lives.

This happened very clearly with a dog named Jack, who is part of Sam T.’s family in Montclair, NJ. Jack had been a lost dog and Sam took him in permanently when he could not find his family.  Although Jack was a well-behaved dog and quickly got into the routine of Sam’s family, Sam always felt that there was something distant about Jack and he never quite seemed happy.

When Sam contacted Animal Connection to find out more about Jack’s past, it was out of curiosity. Little did either of us know what a change this session would make to Jack and Sam’s lives.

When I first communicated with Jack, he did have a very depressed presence about him.  He told me about his previous family and how much he loved them. There were children to play with and they frequently went on vacation together, which Jack loved.  Jack had become separated from them on a recent trip and was picked up by another family.  For some reason, this new family decided to let Jack go later that day as they were passing near Sam’s house.  Jack could not find his way home due to the long distance they had traveled and that’s how he came to find Sam.

Jack told me that he was grateful that Sam took him in.  However, he missed his family and regularly watched the cars going by to see if he might catch a glimpse of them.  His sadness over the sudden separation brought tears to my eyes as he shared his emotions and thoughts.  Sam later told me that Jack’s regular routine confirmed what Jack had told me. It seems he spent hours on the front porch watching the cars go by.

Sam emailed me a week after I completed the communication session to tell me that Jack had changed a few days after the session.  It was so dramatic that everyone in the family noticed it and couldn’t stop talking about it.  There was a spring to Jack’s step and even a smile on his face.  He became more affectionate.  His routine changed and now he spent time in the backyard with the children.  Sam was astounded and felt the only thing that could have caused the change was the communication that Jack had with me.

I contacted Jack again at Sam’s request to see how Jack was doing. He told me that he felt so much better having had an opportunity to tell someone about what happened.  He felt that a weight had been lifted from him and now he was able to really move on with his life.
Although Jack’s story isn’t one of abuse, his experience did bring him a lot of emotional pain.  Many animals, whether rescued, abandoned, abused or even animals who tend to be sensitive to change may have to deal with emotional pain from the past in their daily lives.  Helping them to put this aside and move on is one of the most important things people can do for their animals.  This comes from love, patience and understanding and in some cases, the opportunity for the animal to unburden themselves to a communicator.

As I’ve written in other newsletters, our animals are greatly affected by how they are treated by the people they meet and the circumstances in their lives. They do live in the present but have ties to the past.  How we affect their lives today will have an effect on their lives tomorrow. Our choices today will allow them to live in the here and now tomorrow, which is how they wish to spend their lives.

In researching some holistic remedies recently, I came across this quote in the book, New Choices in Natural Healing for Dogs and Cats.  Dr. Deborah Mallu wrote, “Enjoy your time together and learn to live in the moment like your pet does.  That’s one of the greatest gifts they can teach us.”

So as we look forward, let’s help those animals who need our help to put their past behind them, so they may concentrate on their life and the love they receive today.  And as for us, be open to what the animals around you have to teach you. Let’s not lose sight of fully enjoying today.  Learn from our animals....Live in the moment!

Reasons Why Dogs Don’t Use Computers

  Can’t stick their heads out of Windows 10.


  Hard to read the monitor with your head cocked to one side.


  Too difficult to :mark: every website they visit.


  Can’t help attacking the screen when they hear, “You’re got mail.”


  Fire hydrant icon is simply frustrating.


  Involuntary tail wagging is a deal giveaway that they’re browsing       www.pethouse.com instead of working.


  Three words: Carpal Paw Syndrome.


  Smell-U/Smell-Me is still in beta test.
