  What is a Standard Communication Session?
 A Standard Communication Session is the session that most people use. It includes 5 questions or areas of discussion for one animal.

You may have a particular issue that you want covered with your animal like telling them about your vacation plans, adding a new pet to the household or your plans for the family to move to a new home. People even ask those animals who came to them later in life what their life was like before they joined their family. The subjects are pretty much unlimited.

I am frequently asked if I can change an animal's bad behavior. I can certainly work with your animal companion to convince them to change their behavior but ultimately it is up to them to make the change, as I don't have any direct control over them. However, I will do my very best to convince them that this change is best for them and their family and most of the time, they do make a change. There are, however, instances that are best handled through physical training and I will be sure to tell you that before doing the session, so you have the option to decide if the communication session is the best way to approach the situation. 

Here's a comment from Cindy P. of Harrisburg, PA, who really needed a change in her cat's behavior. 

Danielle, I can’t thank you enough for communicating with my cat, Samson. I have noticed such a big change in his attitude and behavior since the session. It seems like he really listened to your suggestions and is following through. I am thrilled. Again, many thanks.

So are you interested in finding out the answers to the questions you've always wanted to ask your animal companion? Or do you have some messages to pass long?  Animal Connection is here to help you. 

Standard 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. 
An Fun Story!
Over the years, I have communicated quite a few times with Augie, a beautiful Irish Setter who was part of Patsy H.’s family in Bourbonnais, IL.

Patsy shared this very cute story with me and I thought you’d enjoy it. Here’s what Patsy had to say.

When Governor Thompson (Illinois - a billion years ago!) moved from Chicago to Springfield into the Governor's Mansion, he of course brought his Irish Setter, Gov, with him. Augie wrote to Gov suggesting the Governor should give him lots of Milkbones to assist with the adjustment of moving.

Well, a couple of weeks later Augie received a letter from Gov, thanking him for the thoughtful suggestion - it indeed helped him adjust to his new home. When I pulled the envelope from the mailbox and saw that it was from the Office of the Governor I about died!

Patsy had a portrait of Augie painted and the artist asked for several stories about Augie so as to capture Augie’s essence and of course, the Gov story was the one he liked.

Look beIow to see the portrait of Augie. Isn't it great? If you look closely you’ll see the Milkbone and “Dear Jim” on the paper in the typewriter.

Thanks Patsy, for sharing this wonderful story and great remembrance of Augie


In memory of

Our most sincere sympathies to
Cheryl S. and Barb S.
  on the loss of their loving companions.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the animals you had the honor of knowing and loving.

God said, “I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs, yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a broken heart.”

So God made a dog.

Here are two very interesting articles about how much our dogs and cats sleep. I know I’ve always wondered if my dog sleeps too much, as he sure does spend a lot of time sleeping.

A Good Laugh!
      The Miracle Cat Diet

Ever notice how cats seem to have the purrfect body. Follow their diet for a new you in 4 days!

Breakfast: Open can of expensive gourmet cat food.  Any flavor as long as it cost more than $.75 per can - and place 1/4 cup on your plate.  Eat 1 bite of food; look around room disdainfully.  Knock the rest on the floor.  Stare at the wall for a while before stalking off into the other room.

Lunch: Four blades of grass and one lizard tail.  Throw it back up on the cleanest carpet in your house.
Dinner: Catch a moth and play with it until it is almost dead.  Eat one wing.  Leave the rest.
Bedtime snack: Steal one green bean from your spouse's or partner's plate. Bat it around the floor until it goes under the refrigerator.  Steal one small piece of chicken and eat half of it.  Leave the other half on the sofa.  Throw out the remaining gourmet cat food from the can you opened this morning.


Breakfast: Pick up the remaining chicken from the sofa.  Knock it onto the carpet and bat it under the television set.  Chew on the corner of the newspaper as your spouse/partner tries to read it.
Lunch: Break into the fresh French bread that you bought as your part of the dinner party on Saturday.  Lick the top of it all over.  Take one bite out of the middle of the loaf.
Afternoon snack: Catch a large beetle and bring it into the house.  Play toss and catch with it until it is mushy and half dead.  Allow it to escape under the bed.
Dinner: Open a fresh can of dark-colored gourmet cat food-tuna or beef works well.  Eat it voraciously.  Walk from your kitchen to the edge of the living room rug.  Promptly throw up on the rug.  Step into it as you leave. Track footprints across the entire room.

Breakfast: Drink part of the milk from your spouse's or partner's cereal bowl when no one is looking.  Splatter part of it on the closest polished aluminum appliance you can find.

Lunch: Catch a small bird and bring it into the house.  Play with it on top of your down-filled comforter.  Make sure the bird is seriously injured but not dead before you abandon it for someone else to deal with.
Dinner:  Beg and cry until you are given some ice cream or milk in a bowl of your own.  Take three licks/laps, and then turn the bowl over on the floor.

Breakfast: Eat 6 bugs, any type, being sure to leave a collection of legs, wings, and antennae on the bathroom floor.  Drink lots of water.  Throw up the bugs and all the water up on your spouse's or partner's pillow.
Lunch: Remove the chicken skin from last night's chicken-to-go leftovers your spouse or partner placed in the trash can.  Drag the skin across the floor several times.  Chew on it in a corner and then abandon.
Dinner: Open another can of expensive gourmet cat food.  Select a flavor that is especially runny, like Chicken and Giblets in Gravy.  Lick off all the gravy and leave the actual meat to dry and get hard.

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
 More than one

Did you ever wonder what one of your animal companions might think of adding another animal member to the family?

Well, I can tell you from my communications that just like people, our animals have a lot of different views on this topic.

For some, it’s definitely something they embrace. The thought of having a new animal family member is considered a positive thing for most animals. But one clarification I have heard quite a bit is that they want a companion of their species.

Cleo, a cat who is part Tim S.’s family in Lincoln, NE told me that she definitely was open to a new family member when asked about this in a recent communication. But then Cleo said that she wanted to be very clear. She would be glad to welcome another cat, but she wanted her family to know she definitely DID NOT want a dog.

Well, luckily, a dog was not being considered and if it was, Cleo’s family might really need to rethink that based upon how adamant Cleo was about her views.

Sam, a dog who is part of Helen B.’s family in San Diego, CA was also as adamant about what family addition he wanted. Sam told me that although he had a cat friend, Gemma, as part of the family already, he definitely didn’t want another cat in the family. Sam told me that he thought cats were very odd in how they keep to themselves, groom themselves and he even thought their purring was odd. Sam said that his family could keep Gemma (well, that was a relief!) but if there was going to be another animal family member, he definitely wanted a dog friend.

Then there are the times when the prospect of adding an animal to the family is due to the death of another animal family member. Many people do contact Animal Connection to find out if their remaining animal companion is ready for a new addition and if so, what are they looking for in that new family member.

This was the case when Lori and Dan B. of Littlerock, CA lost their beloved Abbey. Lori knew it would take some time before the people in the family would be ready for a new addition, but she was also concerned about Rocky, who was now by himself after spending his entire life with them with his friend, Abbey.

So Lori asked Animal Connection to contact Rocky and see how he felt about a new addition.

Rocky really loved the idea of having a new dog friend in the family. But he definitely had some requests to go with his approval.

The most important thing to Rocky was that the new dog be a dog who would respect his position in the family as the senior dog. This isn’t an uncommon request. Rocky just wanted to be sure the new dog would respect him as the first dog with the family. Then Rocky had one more request. If he could, he wanted to go with his family to pick out the new dog.

Well, Lori and Dan were more than glad to include Rocky in choosing the new dog. And they found the perfect friend for Rocky in Clementine, a beautiful Lab mix.

Although Rocky was a dog who totally embraced his family adding a new dog to the family, there have been several animal companions who have told me that they aren’t ready for a new family member after the death of a friend.

Just as we grieve over the loss of a family member, whether animal or human, our animal companions also grieve. Although most animals are ready to accept a new friend into the family, there are some when asked who are just not ready. Whether it’s the fact that they prefer being an only animal in the family or they have just not moved through their grief, it is wise to listen to what they say. Bringing a new animal into the family when they aren’t ready, especially due to grief, can cause behavior problems and frankly, it’s not fair to them to not give them the time to grieve in their own way.

So, are you considering adding a new animal companion to your family? If so, it’s a good idea to contact an animal communicator to find out how your current animals feel about this. You might find out more than you expect. And you’ll definitely have a happier animal companion if you listen to their needs.
