Comments12/06/2017 #8 Robert Cormack#5 Interesting you bring that up, @Wayne Yoshida. I remember having lunch with a woman who came from French nobility. She married a man against her parents' wishes and lost everything. Sitting there in the restaurant, we overheard a man being rude to the waitress. My friend shook her head. "We were always taught," she said, "that the way you treated servants showed whether you were 'old rich' or 'new rich'." Apparently, there are a lot of "new rich" people out there with no manners. I expect it's the same at home with the dog.12/06/2017 #1 Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBeeHahaha--a jewel, as always.
I had to laugh at this: "If it humps your leg, you’ll probably get to second base before appetizers (with the woman, not the dog — although, hey, the dog has made the first move)." Having been a dog trainer/owner/groomer, if a dog humps your leg, he is marking his territory. He humps you? Maybe you have to do the dog, too.

New York City Subway banned dogs unless they fit in a bag and the people of New York did not disappoint.
i WISH WE COULD DO THIS IN Australia !
I used to take my 8 week old dachshund puppy into the supermarket in a Green Bag' till he got too big.
Comments07/06/2017 #1 Wayne YoshidaI think this is a good idea, especially if someone brought in a drooling or smelly old dog into a subway, that cannot be good. Some people are scared of dogs, or allergic to them.
I would love to see someone bring their Mastiff or Great Dane aboard the subway in a carrying bag!

Comments01/07/2017 #12 Barbara HensleeGorgeous George! Thanks for this buzz!
I've been a crazy dog lady my entire adult life. As I get older, the crazier I get...when it comes to living with them. They are my family. Once, I had a german shepherd bitch who was the hardest puppy I ever had. Hard, meaning I felt that she was too much dog for me. I almost re-homed her because I felt I was not doing right by her. My trainer (not hers, mine)....told me that she wasn't too much dog for me and I just needed to realize that she was an independent thinker, willful, ridiculously intelligent and she knew she held the upper hand when it came to me. :-) My trainer had to teach me how to be the "top dog" to show her that she wasn't. This had to be done positively and I learned how.
We did come to terms and she agreed to disagree about who was the top dog. But, we loved each other and although she was a tough young dog, she turned out to be a loving, loyal adult. I miss her dearly.03/06/2017 #4 Charlene Norman@Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee I have been a dog owner for only 22 years. Because hubby has allergies, we can only have purebred, non-allergenic dogs. Bichons are our preferred choice. I remember being interviewed by the breeder for our first dog to determine if we were suitable parents. I thought it was odd but eventually came to understand completely the why. I guess we were suitable because we eventually become foster parents to her champion male stud. Your loving testament to the world of dogs is beautiful and oh so truthful. It is clear you were one of the best kinds of breeders. My heart aches for the holes you still have. I am so glad the memories of your fur babies are still vivid and thank you for your gift of so poignantly sharing with us.

Comments22/05/2017 #9 Tricia Mitchell#8 yes, Harvey that which the animal kingdom has mastered seems elusive to the human species. Great musings. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/nov/11/canine-ptsd-us-military-working-dogs22/05/2017 #8 Harvey LloydOur world view has certainly narrowed away from that which we do not understand. A very small box to live in.
I can only imagine that the five senses of animals are constantly giving feedback and that somehow that feedback is held within some form of retained logic.
Animals have to sum up their environment very quickly. This would presumably add to a life narrative through many interpretations..
To state i don't understand would be an overstatement. But the irony is that animals, at least in this video, can make a connection and be heard, changed and present differently. Yet with humans this seems illusive in many cases.
Pause for thought:)22/05/2017 #6 Tricia Mitchell#4 Isn't it just, @Ian Weinberg? I hadn't made the SA connection! I've come across one or two 'animal communicators' on reiki training courses, but them saying they understand the cats at the local cattery isn't as impressive as connecting with a leopard, and catching that raw emotion on film! You're welcome, Ian22/05/2017 #5 Tricia Mitchell#3 Your comment reminds me of Suzy Miller's work with children with autism. I understand that she communicates telepathically with them. Here's a parent's story "Now that Jackson is seven January gets information from Jackson on how to change and work through lineage patterns that show up in their life.
One of the biggest ones being “I’m not good enough”. Jackson makes it clear that as January works through these issues the blueprint goes out into the collective and benefits humanity. He shows how by working together they are changing the evolution of consciousness." (taken from January Slater's story about her son, Jackson) http://suzymiller.com/awesomism-stories/22/05/2017 #3 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#2 It may be precisely our addiction to words and naming and explaining that locks us into our prison of separateness, not only from the living world all around us, but even from members of our own species.
Let me see if I can find an old share about the damage of language arriving to a culture....22/05/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThis is #MustWatch on many levels. The most important is to not doubt what we have experienced because it has not been explained with our body of frozen knowledge so far.
Furthermore, animals are conscious, sentient beings whose only crime is to not have evolved vocal chords - so far. But they exist in the world in a completely different way and the conflict comes from our inability to see how strange our way of being in boxes and cages and pleasing everyone around us, is to a wild animal.
So appreciative of this share, @Tricia Mitchell

I moved my eyes as best I could, and little Evie was staring at me, just staring unmoving, but making the low, guttural sound.

- 17/04/2017Would you allow this at your house? My sister thinks Rudy the dog is a person. He's sitting on a chair at the dinner table. Bad habits. Spoiled dog.
Comments18/04/2017 #3 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#1 I think it totally depends on the dog - although I don't personally think there is any upside for either party in treating a dog like a person....
My concern with this scenario is the likelihood of Rudy inadvertently acquiring or vertently being snuck some human food that is poisonous to dogs like onions, raisins, chocolate, etc.
But if Rudy just likes being the center of attention, is a smell-hound who gets his joy from sniffing all the people, and isn't a diehard scavenger where food is concerned, then he should get to take part in the party.18/04/2017 #2 Todd JonesMy dog has horrible manners.... chews with his mouth open, drools uncontrollably, never asks to be excused when he belches, and can't tell a dinner fork from a soup spoon.

Comments26/02/2017 #2 Cyndi wilkins#1 Immediately following the stroke that took my dad's life, he kept mumbling..."My doggie, my doggie, my doggie." ...When I brought his faithful companion "Ranger" into the room, he jumped up on the bed but was very careful not to jump on dad's body. He lay down beside him with his head on his belly...dad stroked his friends head and spoke the last words I ever heard him say..."You're a good boy."
On the day he died I was distraught over his feet turning blue...I kept saying, "I hope your feet aren't cold daddy."
The dog climbed up on the bed and laid his body across dad's feet as if to say, "don't worry, I'll take care of it."
No one will ever convince me that dogs don't know exactly what we need.....Precisely when we need it;-) Love....26/02/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichIt is now officially 7 years since the events I wrote about in my book transpired and I have to say that no one helped me become the person I am more than my 13+ years with Tangenyika. She was part of my body complex, we existed as a unit, and shared senses, not just superficial words.
Now I smile and feel love, even at the thought of the hardest moments of her illness.
The words just & dog have no business being associated.
As I sat here writing on the other side of the room, the feelings I felt radiated to Zanzi. She woke up and came to sit right next to me.
This is an example of the power of the presence of dogs. They can teach us about the gift of learning to sense the energy of being alive that emanates from a heart filled with love.
Thank you, Cyndi, for a chance to put these feelings into words.
