I said this just yesterday " But really, our brains are not that different from dogs’.
We owe them much more brain-credit that we currently give them.
The best thing you can do is make sure you are feeding a species-appropriate diet - lots of good fats and high-quality protein may help your dog's quality of life during this last phase.

Comments09/07/2017 #6 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#4 Thanks a lot Tricia! Will check these resources for the info I really am curious to know. To be able to relate dis-ease to emotional distress and to make a person understand the connection would really be the first step to resolving conflicts and unexplainable symptoms that could go way back to infancy and beyond.09/07/2017 #5 Tricia MitchellPraveen, re the comment about releasing 'conflicts' if safe to do so * E.g. if someone receives assistance because of being unwell, once healed, if they don't have the skills to re-enter the workforce, psychologically, there may be resistance to self-healing (in solving one issue, we create another).
One of my trainers was working with a woman who had Multiple Sclerosis. The benefit was that her adult children would visit her and help out. As she became more independent, their visits became less frequent. She made a conscious decision that she would rather be ill and have her children visit than be independent and lonely.
Bruce Lipton's work is a great resource to explore epigenetics and dis-ease: "Wow! This means that people are not victims of their genes as we used to think. They can change their perceptions and thus change their health. Now that’s exciting! The old biology used to take away choice and control the outcome. When you tell people they are victims, their power is diminished. The work now is to help people change their perceptions so they can change their outcomes.” https://www.brucelipton.com/resource/article/the-biology-love09/07/2017 #4 Tricia Mitchell#3 Dear Praveen thank you for your comment. Yes, indeed, I remember when people would talk about things that were 'galling' - what a great example. You're right in what you say about some health conditions have very complicated origins. The biopsychosocial model analyses health conditions symptom by symptom.
So, for example, while doctors may diagnose a condition based on a number of symptoms present e.g. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)/ ME has around 8 symptoms including headaches, sore throat, problems concentrating, etc. CFS is linked to perfectionism https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20961622 (at a very basic level, if you're scared of failing, as a perfectionist, then if you're unwell, you're unable to try & therefore you're unable to fail). It's not a conscious process. With careful/compassion''ing questioning, one can explore what benefit the dis-ease gives to a person? What does it stop them from doing? Then we can look for the belief and emotion attached to that; explore more empowering ones & then, if it's safe* to release the conflict, the body can continue to heal.
Headaches are a symptom of healing, as is increased sleep & appetite. When we cut our finger, inflammation is part of the healing process. The problem is that some people never fully resolve the 'bio-logical conflict' and get stuck in the healing phase. Or, they cycle between the stress phase and healing phase and that is when the condition becomes chronic - flaring up, then calming down, etc.
I'm sorry, I don't have an infographic, Praveen (I was looking for a way to email information to you), but this buzz has some of the organ tissues & corresponding brain layers referenced https://www.bebee.com/producer/@tricia-mitchell/a-curious-thing-happened-on-my-path-to-peace Thank you for your interest.09/07/2017 #3 Praveen Raj GullepalliThe bio-psycho-socio matrix with a corresponding manifestation of disease sounds very plausible! Remember how folks call somethings unpleasant 'galling' ? Do you have some kind of a basic infographic around that dear Tricia? Of course, I do understand that some ailments can have very complicated origins at times, even genetically coded.

Comments28/06/2017 #4 Deb 🐝 HelfrichGlad that it mostly turned out all right, @Barbara Henslee
I have to remind myself how grateful I am to live where cold-blooded critters aren't especially likely to flourish. We've been lucky so far to avoid all the typical canine close encounters. Well, if we exempt duck poop. Had many encounters of the smelly sort....28/06/2017 #3 Barbara Henslee@David B. Grinberg, Thank you! Lucky is running free in the beautiful green, flower filled fields (with his gal pal) awaiting your reunion. Your story reminds me of two of my Labs (both RIP). For a short span, they both would escape the property for adventuring. Once, while working from home, I looked out my front window to see both of them happily walking towards the front fence from the house. I just watched, hoping that I would see how they were escaping. What I saw amazed me. The female, Cody, was leading the way, with her ever faithful compantion, Buddy, close behind. Cody walked over to an area, stopped, turned her head to look at Buddy. She stayed in place as Buddy walked around her and started digging at the spot designated by her. He dug and dug and dug until the hole was large enough. Buddy stepped back giving Cody room. She started crawling through the hole that he dug for her. When she made her way out, she waited for him to come through. Then off they went, but they didn't get far. I ran outside to get their happy butts back in. It was hilarious and quite eye opening.28/06/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergWhat a wonderful piece of storytelling, Barbara, especially for dog lovers like me. I had a Golden Retriever named Lucky when I was a kid. He had such a good nature and was so lovable. That is, excluding the times he would run away. Lucky was a big dog and could rest his paws on my shoulders when he stood of his hind legs (I wasn't yet a teenager at that time). Lucky weighed about 80 pounds. He was also every strategic and sneaky about escaping (or busting out, as we called it).
Lucky would lie on the floor in the foyer all quiet and unsuspecting. Then when someone came to the house he would time the exact moment before the screen door closed to spring forward and bust out in one fell swoop like a burst of lightening. We think he had a girlfriend in the neighborhood.
And while we were always worried about Lucky when he was gone for hours and couldn't find him, Lucky would always return home safely (thank goodness). May Lucky rest in peace up in canine heaven; I miss you, pal!
Thanks for the memories, Barbara, and keep buzzing!

Comments29/06/2017 #2 Barbara Henslee#1 Hi 🙋🏻 Yes, currently, I have two German Shepherd dogs. Both adopted from rescue shelters. Bruder is about 10 years old, and he joined us when he was about a year old. Jake is estimated to be about 6 or 7, But, he acts like he is 2. We adopted him March last year. Both dogs are super sweet and smart as whips. I'll share some photos soon.

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.

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.
