It was a long, snowy winter for many of us in the northern US and spring is a welcome change! I found myself sedentary and isolating, with the exception of my twice weekly jaunts to Spokanimal to cuddle and walk dogs. Having Domingo move to Dog Heaven in July 2016, my mantra has been “I’m not ready,” as I showed up week after week.
It reminds me of the Three Bears story. There were several dogs I fell in love with but they were not just right.
In an intuitive image, I saw the dog that was coming into my life, but images are not always clear. I knew the dog would be light colored, with some curl to his hair and would barely shed. I talked to friends about Labradoodles and other dogs that may look like this. I actually ended up adopting a poodle, but Quinn and I were not a good fit, so I returned him so he was able to find his true home. I was on the right intuitive track, but he was not the right choice.
And then I found Gummidge. Not sure where the name came from but I found it is the name of a Scarecrow Character in an English Fairy tale.
I walked and cuddled Gummidge and I knew he was an Angel. I wanted to take him immediately, but had to get back to work and I also like to “sleep on things.” I pondered his name and decided I would keep Gummidge out of respect for him and add Angelo. Gummidge Angelo. We’ll call him Angel!
Wednesday morning I was there as soon as the shelter opened and we became family! I loved having him with me in the car (and yes I do use a halter.)
Immediately I was happier and had more energy. The next morning he walked me for 40 minutes and continues to walk me every morning for about an hour. The love energy exchange has been so healing. I realized with Domingo my previous dog, that it is the need to love something, to be other centered that is so healing. Not only that. When you have a companion that loves unconditionally, especially if you work helping others, or don’t have adequate family support; it can be amazing!
Even my BFF Cheyenne energetically read my heart telling me about the increase in vibrational energy since Angel and I chose each other. He loves sitting at my feet in my office when I am working! I love it too!
Thank God for these gentle Angels who bring such joy you our lives.Click To Tweet
