Barb M. of Apple Valley, CA emailed and told us how she found a cute Schnauzer statue for her yard. Then a neighbor snuck over and decorated it in a unicorn outfit. Well, recently, Barb found the statue decorated again, but this time in a Hawaiian shirt. Pretty funny and cute. Here’s a picture of the statue and also Barb’s REAL Schnauzer, Samantha wearing the same Hawaiian shirt. Can you tell who the real Schauzer is?  
Congratulations to Tina S. of Albuquerque, NM. Tina decided to rescue a kitten and before she knew it she came home with two. Tina said she couldn’t break up the brother and sister family, so she decided to bring them both home. Congratulations Tina on the new additions of your family, Eddie and Ellen.
And congratulations to Toni P. of Santa Barbara, CA. Toni is thrilled over Grover, a beautiful Palamino horse joining her family.  Lots of trail rides are in their future.

Halloween Safety for Your Animal Companions

Halloween can be either fun or frightening for your pets.  A little forethought and preparation can ensure that your pet family is safe during the Halloween festivities in your home and community. 

Costumes, Parties and Parades
First and foremost, even if your pets are going to be wearing costumes, keep a well-fitting collar with ID tags on them at all times. Their costume shouldn’t interfere with their collar or harness and leash.  Next, make sure their microchip information is up to date. Have you moved, changed your phone number or dropped your landline recently? If so, update your information with your microchip company to ensure that you will be reunited with your pets if they go missing. 

Not all pets enjoy wearing a Halloween costume, so do a trial run first.  Make sure nothing is obstructing their vision, hearing or breathing. Ensuring they won’t get overheated is essential.  They should also be able to walk and potty normally without interference from the costume. Never leave a pet unattended in a costume (even for a minute!).  Make sure there is nothing they can chew or ingest that could harm them. If they seem fearful or stressed it might be better to forego the costume or modify it so that they are more comfortable.  Maybe opt for a Halloween-themed bandana instead! 

Leave the retractable flexi-leash at home and use a traditional 4 or 6 foot lead instead.  Flexi-leashes can become a frightening, clattering “monster” behind your dog, if you accidentally drop it during the fun.  This can cause your dog to flee in terror and can result in injury if they run into traffic. Flexi-leashes can also cause serious burns to humans and other animals.  If someone comes to your party with a dog on a flexi-leash, swap them out for a traditional leash to use while they are there. 

Handing out Candy
Keep all pets inside and safe on Halloween night. Cats are probably best safely contained in a quiet room or in their carrier.   Dogs may enjoy the visitors, but to prevent them from accidentally darting out the door or nipping an inquisitive child, use a baby gate as a barrier at your front door.  Then you can simply pass the candy out over the gate while your dog can observe the fun but still back away from the children if he feels threatened. If your dog becomes stressed by the trick-or-treaters, put him in a quiet room until all is calm.

Keep all Halloween candy away from pets. Chocolate and any candy that contains xylitol (an artificial sweetener) can be toxic. To prevent fires and nasty burns, avoid using candles in your Halloween decorations. Use flameless battery-operated candles instead. Don’t let your pets get a hold of glow sticks which could cause an upset stomach.  Simple precautions can keep your evening from being ruined by having to make an unplanned visit to the emergency vet.

“You enter into a certain amount of madness when you marry a person with pets.” – Nora Ephron

“Man can no longer live for himself alone. We must realize that all life is valuable and that we are united to all life. From this knowledge comes our spiritual relationship wot the universe.” – Albert Schweitzer

“We cannot without becoming cats, perfectly understand the cat mind.”  -- St.George Mivart

  What is a Custom Communication Session?
Sometimes our clients have a need to have more than one animal communicated with or have more than 5 questions or areas of discussion, which is done through our Standard Session. For this need, we offer a Custom Session where the pricing is based upon the time that it will take to complete the session.

In some circumstances, our clients want one message passed along to multiple animal companions, such as information on their family leaving on vacation or perhaps moving. When one message is passed along to everyone, we can help keep the cost down by communicating with everyone at the same time, which is less costly than communicating with each animal individually sharing that same message.

Whether it’s a group session, wanting a more in depth session with one animal or communicating specific information to multiple animals, we will always provide you a quote on the price before doing a Custom Session.

Here’s what Sandy T. of Phoenix, AZ had to say about our Custom Session.

“Thanks so much for doing the session with Pixy, Fluffy, Andy and Earl. I really appreciated that you offered a reduced price by providing a communication with all of them at the same time on the upcoming events going on in our family. I could definitely tell the difference in their acceptance of the changes this time since they knew ahead of time what changes were coming. Many thanks, Danielle. This was a very effective session.”

So do you need something special from Animal Connection? Then a Custom Session may be the answer for you. If you have any questions about this type of session or any of our other sessions, please feel free to email us at [email protected]

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
       Communication from the animal's point of view

Whether you’ve had your animal meet with a communicator or not, you may be curious as to how animals view a communication session. Well, there are many different reactions. It depends upon the experiences the animal has had with communicating, their ability to accept new experiences and their trust of people.

Trust is the most critical issue.  When I begin a session, I explain to the animal that I was asked to meet with them by their person. I work hard at making the animal feel comfortable with me and gaining their trust. I do this because it is the polite and respectful thing to do and also because without the animal’s trust, they may not be willing to share the details of what I am trying to receive for their person.

Sandy, a beautiful black Labrador who lives with her person Sue T. in Ocala, FL was an animal who was a bit distrustful. Unfortunately, Sandy had been in five homes within 3 years before coming to Sue. Sue told me that although Sandy had been with her for several months, she didn’t feel that they had bonded. Sue had tried everything she knew, however, there just wasn’t that emotional connection that she wanted so badly with Sandy.

When I first met with Sandy, I introduced myself as usual. She was very, very quiet and I could tell she was sizing me up.  I gave her plenty of time to ask all the questions she wanted. Her questions were all surrounding how close I was to her physically.

After some time we built a slight rapport, but I could really tell what Sue meant when she said that they had not bonded. Sandy was keeping her distance emotionally. She didn’t quite trust me yet.

We communicated about some general issues and I could sense her relaxing some. That’s when I decided to ask Sandy why she seemed uncomfortable with me when we first met. Sandy was very quiet for some time and then told me her story. She said that in the past every time someone came to visit her from far away, they took her from her home and she went to a new home. Since I was so far away, even though I wasn’t with her physically, she thought I would take her away.

After reassuring her that her life was with Sue, I naturally led to Sue’s concern about them not bonding. Sandy told me that she learned over time not to get too attached to her people because she would soon be moving on. With a great deal of time spent in reassuring her that her home was permanently with Sue, we moved on to other topics.  Two days later, I received an email from Sue. To use her own words, “ It seems like Sandy had a load of bricks lifted off her shoulders after she communicated with you. She’s a new dog. I’m finally seeing the Sandy I always knew was there.”

Some animals see my physical distance from them as a positive thing. Many who are very shy because they have not been treated well by people tell me that they don’t mind communicating with me because I am far enough away that they know I cannot bring them any physical harm. They’ve come to trust no one.

Aaron, a beautiful calico cat in both body and spirit, was one such animal. Although his person Shelly C. of Des Moines, IA described him as very shy toward visitors, he wasn’t like this with me at all. When I asked him about this he said he had no reason to be shy. I was not close enough to him physically to bring him harm. He told me that he really enjoyed communicating with me because he felt safe.

Then there are the animals who just go on and on about the issues that are important to them. This is fine. They need someone to listen. I allow them to do this, as I know they can’t concentrate on their person’s issues until they share their thoughts.

Then there is the animal who will give me a round of “20 Questions”.

I’m often asked where I live or who I am. Some tell me that I seem like I am far away. Others tell me that I seem close, yet know I am physically far away.  I find that this can correlate to how well the animal accepts my communication and how good a communicator they are. I’ve even had animals ask me to wait a moment after they tell me that hearing me is difficult. Then they seem to connect better. It’s almost as if for some, it takes a moment to tune in.

Spunky, a horse who is part of Linda C.’s family in Dallas, TX, was a horse who seemed to have endless questions. Then he asked me an interesting one. He wanted to know what kind of being I was. I told him I was a human being and he thought that was quite interesting. He said he knew I didn’t feel like an animal to him when we were communicating. He had communicated with other animals before, yet he seemed so surprised that a human would communicate with him.

I hear this surprise about human communication from quite a few animals. Many seem surprised that a human is communicating with them as they’ve had no luck in having people hear them before. Or it’s just the opposite. Their people hear them but don’t realize it’s them.

And finally there are the animals who immediately seem to know I’m there because they’ve done something wrong. It’s like they’ve been caught in the act.  They know that I’ll be patient, waiting for them to give me the reasons as to why they have a particular bad habit.

Christopher was just such a dog. He had taken to urinating in the house, yet he was house broken and taken outside many times during the day.  His family thought that knowing the reason for his behavior change might help them correct it.

His person, Sharon, took immediate action after receiving the information. She made a point of providing Christopher, even more attention than usual, as he said he felt a bit neglected lately. The bad behavior stopped.

So what do animals think of the communication when it’s over?  Most love it. For many, it’s the first time they’ve had the chance to open up and tell someone the issues that have been concerning them. This was exactly the case with Sandy and having “lightened the load”, she was able to move on to have a loving relationship with Sue.

And what’s the one message I hear most from all the animals?  Over and over again, I hear how they want their family to know that they love them and they want to thank their family for their care and love.

This is a message that I never tire of hearing or one that I never mind passing along.

​​ Some More Laughs!
            And a bit of wisdom too!

 If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff like:

 When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. 

 Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. 

 Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy. 

 When it's in your best interest, practice obedience. 

 Let others know when they've invaded your territory. 

 Take naps. 

 Stretch before rising. 

 Run, romp, and play daily. 

 Thrive on attention and let people touch you. 

 Avoid biting when a simple growl will do. 

 On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass. 

 On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree. 

 When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body. 

 No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and right back and make friends. 

 Delight in the simple joy of a long walk. 

 Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.  Stop when you have had enough. 

 Be Loyal Never pretend to be something you're not. 

 If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. 

 When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

From Audrey B. of El Cajon, CA… Wow....that was absolutely amazing....I had tears of gratitude and joy rolling down my face as I read your report. I can hear in your words that you picked up on Rudy's personality exactly and we are now both feeling very much relieved and less stressed.  I am so grateful that my Aunt Jeannie told me about you and I will most definitely be sharing my experience with family and friends.  It is also very comforting to know I have you as a resource should any issues arise with Rudy in the future. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

From Allison M. of Montrose, CO… I want to thank you!! I had to gather myself after I read this but it has put my heart at peace. 

From Judy B. of Bryn Mawr, PA…. Thank you. When I was with Brody when I came home and later he was noticeably more affectionate and quiet. I felt something different from him that was very nice.
