Another big-hearted couple, Alex and Fran, have a very handsome Sheltie named Shadow who wanted to know why one of their cats is so mean (they have four cats!). “What’s up with that crazy cat?” I heard him say. Shadow doesn’t like anything discordant in his home and wants to always maintain the peace in his house. He has two new siblings, Vivi and Jackson, who Alex and Fran rescued from a home where they were two of many other dogs in a house owned by a hoarder. And Alizé, their eldest Sheltie, relaxed on the ground, listening and observing, taking in all the sights and sounds around her.

Ellyn and her husband George are also amazing people with huge hearts who have adopted several Shelties. One of them, Sully, calmed down and felt better after wearing a Tellington TTouch® wrap and heading out onto a Tellington TTouch® confidence course that I laid out for some clients. Another one of their dogs, Sassy, is a beautiful cream-colored senior dog, very hard of hearing, who lost one eye to glaucoma and who adores George. She can sense wherever he is and she always wants to be wherever he is.
Sheba, a dog that Ellyn and George are currently fostering in their home, is a real sweetheart. I did some energy healing on Sheba who has hip dysplasia and is in need of some expensive veterinary treatment and physical therapy. Sheba’s sweet eyes and expression say it all as she relaxes in the cute wagon that Ellyn and George wheel her and Sassy around in. Those who want to make a contribution on Sheba’s behalf can send donations to Tri-state Sheltie Rescue at www.tristatesheltierescue.org. If you want to check Sheba out, you can go to http://www.tristatesheltierescue.org/available_shelties.html or see her as well in the pictures here, relaxing in Ellyn’s wagon.

The head of Tri-state Sheltie is a remarkable woman named Julie who, despite health issues, works tirelessly on behalf of the Shelties in her rescue group. I sat with Julie and her two delightful Shelties, Petey and Bella. Petey made himself very comfortable on my feet as Bella found her right spot underneath my chair. Just being around these two loving, relaxed and sweet dogs, surrounded by beautiful trees and the beauty of Duke Island Park, made my own heart feel so deeply peaceful. They clearly adore Julie and were so happy to be spending this special day with her. They also enjoyed sharing some important thoughts and feelings with her as the four of us chatted during the animal communication session.
