Healing With Pets
This is how pets look in my part of the world.
And today’s message is inspired by a tribute to a dog name Luke, who ‘owned’ a director of a breast cancer center as his ‘family’. Luke had been to five homes, and was adopted. The tribute movie starts with Adoption Day. You see vacations. The birth of her daughter (she is a single mom like me). He becomes a therapy dog, and comes to clinic with his mom each day to help the patients feel more whole and just drink in that love that only a dog can give…One of my favorite images is the daughter and dog, both asleep. baby feet touching puppy feet…then the dog gets sick, and gets ‘a new ride’, a special cart so he can still enjoy activities with the family. You can see his face as he weakens, and the memorial for him at the beach at the end.
There is this amazing energy from the dog in the video. He’s an angel, and he was sent to protect her as a healer and as a single mom. You can see the total love and trust the daughter has for her puppy, and his beautiful soul.
When he passed, my friend said she felt this incredible calm in her chest, like Luke gave a piece of his ‘calm’ to her, and she’s had it ever since.
