​​Welcome to Animal Connection News Online, your online source for information about animal communication and the messages our animals want to share with us.

As school is beginning to start up soon in many areas of the U.S., summer is definitely winding down. But for those of us in the south, autumn is still a long way away. So be sure to continue to keep an eye on your animals and how they are handling the heat. Fresh water more often during the day goes a long way in helping our animal companions stay hydrated.

We hope you are continuing to enjoy your summer and that your animals are sharing in your fun times.  This summer, we spent the season in Michigan to get out of the Texas heat and just love the cool temperatures and beautiful lakes. Our dog, Rocky, loves swimming in Lake Michigan or any body of water. Here’s a picture of him earlier in the summer just before he decided to take a swim. The water temperature was VERY cold but that didn’t seem to matter to him. 

We’d love to hear from you if you are doing anything special with your animal companions this summer….maybe a day at the beach, a horse show, a weekend at the lake, a summer trip or just a fun time at home.

From the Heart 
        A Thank You to YOU!

Through my work as an animal communicator, I come into contact with so many different people, as well as their animals. I am amazed by the work that is done to help animals by each and every person I come in contact with.

Whether you volunteer at a shelter or rescue organization, foster animals in your own home, donate money to an animal organization or adopt an animal who needs a good home, each and every effort you make whether large or small helps the animals who look to us for care and a good life.

So this month, I would like to dedicate our From the Heart article to YOU! If you are reading this newsletter you are either a client, newsletter subscriber or someone who happened upon our website and has an interest in animals.

Over the years, I have heard from so many animals who thank their families or thank those in the organizations who oversee them until their forever home is found. Aside from the one message I hear the most which is how much they love the people in their family, the next most frequent message I hear is how grateful they are for the care and love that they receive from us. And it is each of you who makes that message possible through your kindness and love. 

So to all of you who love the animals in your care or are just kind to one that you may see in passing, thank you from Animal Connection. You are doing your part to make our animals’ world a better place. You have no idea how even smallest act of kindness or show of love is so appreciated by every animal.  Thank YOU….From the Heart from Animal Connection.
  What is a Memorial Communication Session?
A Memorial Session is for those people who wish to contact their animals who have passed away. In general, most of these sessions are done near the time the animal has passed away, although contact can be made later than this. My clients find that it is a way to ask final questions about their animal’s transition or other issues, as well as pass along any final messages from their family. For many families, this session provides a great deal of closure on the animal’s life.

Here’s a comment from one of our clients who used this service.

I can't thank you enough. Although the three of us cried our eyes out, you also made us smile for the first time since we lost Garfield. I didn't think Teresa would ever feel like herself again. She has just been so devastated. You did something me or her brother couldn't do. You put a smile on her face. You described our precious Garfield to a tee. Just like with Pucker, you have brought some healing to my family. Teresa just keeps reading it over and over. The tears flow then she smiles. Thank you so much. Hope D. of Bolton Landing, NY
If you feel this is something that can help you and your family, please don’t hesitate to contact Animal Connection.
Memorial Sessions are $45. Click here if you would like to place an order or go to the Services-Order Forms tab at the top of the page to locate all our offered services.

Movie Recommendation

Several years ago, I read the book, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Although it is fiction, it is such a heart-warming story about the life of Enzo, a Golden Retriever. The story is about how Enzo sees life through his eyes and he is , greatly influenced by what he sees on TV.  But the biggest messages is how much Enzo loves his family and does his best to care for them. 
Recently, this book was made into a movie of the same title and the movie did not disappoint. It is heart-warming and funny but ….bring some tissues too.

If you’d like to read the book before seeing the movie, just click on book below which will bring you to Amazon. At the time of our newsletter publication the paperback price is $9.29 and the Kindle version is $8.99. The movie is currently playing in many theaters. If you see it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
       Living in the Moment
“All animals possess the enviable quality of complete acceptance of the moment – a quality some of us meditate on for a lifetime, only to achieve in small measures. Coming into animal presence, we may find ourselves refreshingly alert ot living in the moment.  – Susan Chernak McElroy

I ran across this quote recently and it made me think about this very same message that I’ve received from many animals over and over again throughout the years that I’ve been doing animal communication work.
While humans will think a great deal about the past or worry about the future, our animal companions are very different. They take one day at a time and live in the moment.

Think about that for a minute. Imagine what your life might be like if you live more in the moment, embracing each moment of life as it comes.

Of course, with the complexity of human lives, this isn’t always easy to do or even possible. Planning is part of who we are as humans and what we need to do to keep our lives moving forward successfully. However, how many times have we all let those small wonderful moments pass us by because we were too busy thinking about the past or future and not enjoying the moment we are living in?

Many people request of me to find out about the past that an animal has experienced. This is certainly a valid request, especially if the past is causing behavioral problems that a family wants to address. And just because an animal lives in the moment, it doesn’t mean that their past doesn’t influence their current life.

In particular, I have had many requests to find out about an animal’s past when it seems that there has been abuse before the animal came to live with their new family. In general, most animals are willing to look back and share those details, but to them it’s just a brief remembrance. The message that I hear with this request is their life may have been difficult, but that was in the past and there’s no need to dwell on it.

Almost every one of the animals I have communicated with who lived under these circumstances looks at the blessings of their current family and living situation. They are grateful to have been rescued from the past but just concentrate on the wonderful life they live now.

This is not to say that they haven’t been affected by the past. They certainly have, especially when there have been extreme situations. And I do find that in these circumstances, it does help the animal to be able to share what happened to them as a way to release the emotional pain. At this point, although the animal hasn’t been dwelling on the past, they can now put it to rest and become more focused on their current life.

As I think of the animals that I have communicated with over the last 20+ years as part of Animal Connection, I realize that they have so much to teach us if we will only listen. And perhaps like you, I can hear this one message about living more in the moment. I think we would all agree that it will bring more joy to our life.

So I thank all the animals I have communicated with for sharing this message and the many other messages they share. If we listen, it is amazing what we can learn from our animal companions.

​​         Life Lessons from a Dog
If you stare at someonelong enough, eventually you’ll get what you want.

Don’t’ go out without ID.

Be direct with people; let them know exactly how you feel by piddling on their shoes.

Be aware of when to hold your tongue and when to use it.

Leave room in your schedule for a nap.

When you do something wrong, always take responsibility (as soon as you’re dragged out from under the bed.)

If it’s not wet and sloppy, it’s not a real kiss.

Customer Comments

From Nancy T. of Phoenix, AZ…. Thank you, Danielle, for your help with Randy. We just could not understand what was causing his behavior issue but after seeing things from his perspective through the communication, it all makes sense. Now we can concentrate on his training in a new way and we are already seeing some positive changes. Many thanks for helping us with Randy.

From Tammy S. of Albany, NY… I just loved the session with Glenda. We really wanted to rescue another cat and it has given us peace of mind knowing that Glenda is excited about this idea too. Thanks for helping us with this decision.

From Tom P. of Colorado Springs, CO… I wanted to let you know how well Steel did in our last competition. I saw such an improvement in him after the Reassurance Session you did with you. Thank you so much for helping both of us.
