D: Dogs love their people. Even if the people are not capable of loving them. People are of all different stages. Some can love dogs deeply and some tie them up and don’t think of them as souls. All ranges on the spectrum are okay. We all are here to benefit ourselves and the lives of our people. Take just one person who gets a dog and tethers him for all his life, like Dick (the guy who intended to kill me when you got me). That person cannot see or feel the love we dogs naturally possess. But it still is there. Maybe one day that person will be able to feel love. And when they do, they will remember us and that radiation of love we all have. We will have been of use to that person in their development.
C: But what about the life of an abused dog like that and more.
D: We still are trying to reach people and believe it or not, we are part of their process of change and growth. As a person grows, they learn new and different things. What you see when someone is abusing an animal, in a while, they may not do that anymore, because they know more now. They have grown and learned and changed. The abused dog was part of their learning. Again, as you have heard before, we are helping you people to evolve in whatever way we can. If that means taking abuse, so be it. We don’t see it as abuse like people do. We see it as having a stronger impact on a person’s life that needed it to become better, more at peace. Occasionally we will draw weary of the abuse and end the life, but mostly we are there to help the advancement of people. Sometimes a dog comes into the life of a person who has health issues. And that dog helps the health issues. Maybe by taking attention off of the person by having their own health issues, or maybe by healing in a dog-love way. Whatever way we can help people to become more loving and at peace, that is our goal. We are not relegated to one way of being, we can reach more in different ways. Today is one of adjustment. I will be seeing you soon. Remember, the black cat is me.
C: Okay, Dicky. I am so sorry that you have left me as a dog. You did great. You are a gem. From when you came to me out of control, I didn’t think I’d ever get you trained. But you came around and was a GREAT soul, perfect for me. You taught Tai Chi about being a dog, about being with people, about being on the farm. You did a fabulous job in tracking and even agility. And with the other animals, too. I will miss you as a dog in my life. So will Tai chi. Best to you and I’ll be watching for you, my new black cat.
