Everything I Need to Know In Life I Learned From My Dog

He trusts that the Universe, aka me, will provide for his needs. He’ll walk over to his bowl and if there’s food in it he’ll eat - if it’s empty he’ll go back to sleep until food appears..Either way works. He doesn’t pace the floor worrying about when the food will come and if it will be enough or if it will be his last meal or if it’s meeting his nutritional needs.

Natural healing for dogs

I have recently received my Reiki atonement so I have been practicing on Smash. My wife and I have always practiced a form of hands on energy healing so Reiki is a natural extension of this for us.

I noticed the other day that we have been focusing too much energy in to his healing leg because the hair on the scar there had completely grown back while his other scars on his side and front leg are still surrounded by very short hair.

We have made a greater effort to spread out the energy all over him more.

I recently learned that dogs and horses have an extra chakra called the brachial chakra just above the shoulder area. This chakra is a balancing chakra for all the others. we have been working with this one to help balance him out.

Seems that most of our would be Reiki sessions end up being mostly just a lot of pet-the-puppy with is his favorite activity.

I have been amazed at what he has learned to do with his healing leg. He can now lift it at the appropriate times, and he can stand as it there was nothing wrong with him.

He still has trouble with the "sit" pose. He just can't get that leg to cooperate just yet.

But yesterday I got a surprise when I bent over to pick up one of his toys. I have not idea how he did it but I felt both of his front paws on my back as he somehow jumped up on me. Normally I would scold him for this behavior but I was very happy to know he had learned how to jump again.

I still intend to have a whole healthy dog.

Smash's healing leg

So far Smash is adapting to his less than functional leg better than he is adapting to his loss of freedom.

We keep him indoors at night on on a short tether outdoors during the day. We have at least released him from the crate.

I am really glad that we had trained him how to walk on a leash as a puppy, because he would be really hared to handle now.

He still wants to go visit the neighbor dogs, but we keep him on a short leash when we walk to the mail box.

I have been studying Reiki so he gets lots of practice sessions from me. I have also been doing EFT with him as well.

He is so full of alternative energy treatments there is no telling what kind of a light creature he will evolve into!

Thanks to all those who have sent prayers and energy treatments his way. And if any of you would like the opportunity to contribute to his veterinary bills and other costs associate with the injury you may make a donation at this link. Just make a note that the donation is for Smash.

Or make a purchase of the Sit Stay Fetch course from the site and a portion of your purchase price will go to Smash's recovery fund.
