FINALLY IS ARNOLD GOING TO HIS NEW FAMILY

0

 These pictures were taken by me when I visited a shelter run by the Government back in January 2016 me thinks. Anyway, I saw him right away and fell in love. Finally, I can tell you that I am flying over and bringing him with me back to Germany.

 He is a handsome Senior that should not sit in a place like this. No one should, and I am doing my best to find a solution. It takes time, it shouldn’t but it does. Drives my heart into sadness since time is going so fast and the dogs are having shorter life than we got.

 These is the place. Its smelly and horrible. I have been told that they are making some small changes. Cannot wait to see that in June.

 They are euthanising some of the dogs, but only when they need a new cage, then the oldest or the sickest goes.

Help me make changes for the other dogs there. That’s Amore!

MY COLUMN FOR THE MAGAZINE NARA

                 Animals do not Fear Death
 (You can read my column in Swedish here, Tidningen Nara 
Death may scare most of us humans, but it does not scare the animals. For the Other Side and Life are the same for them. 
Life will never end!
I have never experienced the Other Side for us humans. But I took part of the “Animals” Other side ones. The strong experience happened to me in the early 1990s and since then it has always comforted me when I work with sick animals.
In my first book, “Listen When Animals Speak” (Forum 2000) I wrote about my experience. At that time, I went to a masseuse who also worked with Body Harmony. That made me curious. “You can experience the past life,” said the female masseur to me. I did as she said, but without much expectations. I breathed deeply and directly everything felt very pleasant. I just was!
Suddenly, a black and white muscular stallion cantered behind my closed eyelids in full figure. He was handsome and proud and had enormous charisma that gave me security and confidence. The stallion had control over all the other horses cantering around and finally they gathered behind him. They were all in a valley where the grass was green and juicy, and I saw everything so clearly, even dewdrops on each blade of the grass!
 I had never seen such a fantastic green grass before. The colors were magnificent and there was a great calm. The horses cantered past me and finally came Sigge, my horse that I had been euthanized a couple of months earlier. I could feel his presence so strong!
When I opened my eyes, I was totally confused and almost in a small state of shock. It had been like for every thought I thought, it became as if my eyes were zooming in like a camera lens. Everything was so peaceful and beautiful, that I wanted to go back there again. I longed!
I realized that life is not merely a loss, death and grief. There is a reason for everything, even death. A new door opens for those who leave the Earth, but also for those who remains.
A Labrador communicated to me just before she left her Earthly life: “We give you our whole heart and love, regardless of who you are. We give unconditionally love to our owners, as to all others we meet during our time on Earth. 
In the life time without any end! “

It is Never to Late

0

 In 2008 i got a phone call to help a shelter that was totally falling apart, dogs being abused, they were standing up to their stomachs in poo and pee. They drank moulded water, lack of food.

It was horrible. It is images I still carry around in my heart and mind. Its nothing you wipe off and go to bed. However, I learned that life is not black and white. Sometimes you cannot rescue everyone. Sometimes we learn more about ourselves and other people. You meet people that teach you what you don’t want to become. You met new people that you start new goals with.
We went to the shelter and the owner got a slap on her wrist by the judge for treating the animals badly. The woman changed her name and started a new shelter somewhere else together with other people in the front.
We Awl went in and cleaned and delivered food and veterinarian care. 2009 AWL took 10 dogs and another shelter Leda Ass, took 20 dogs. The other 20-30 dogs went to a townhall shelter.
Otello in the picture went with Leda Ass. and 2010 our paths changed directions until 2016 when I visited Leda in their new nice shelter. To my very big surprise Otello now 14 years old is still in the cage. NO ONE wanted to adopt him.
My heart just broke. 
This weekend we posted him on here, and to my and Leda Ass delight, we got a home for him. 
Tomorrow you can read my column about him and his journey, his advice to us humans. 
The woman that are adopting him, loves Seniors, and knows what it takes and means. No hearts are to old to love. Its like being old and beautiful as human and not dare to find a partner again, because “he might just die soon”
If you don’t live the fullest, you will miss the beauty. 
Thats Amore!
Otello is now getting ready with his shots and health tests for upcoming pet passport. WE think and hope he will be ready to travel VIP –no flying–in 30 days.

  Its never to late to love an old heart. Just because we get old doesn’t mean we suddenly stop to live and love. Would we say that to elderly people, “sorry you are to old to love now, “he” will probably die in one year”

No! Live the fullest, and its when you stop loving you become old.
Thats Amore! First time I met Rossella from her Ass. Leda!

Plan Your Rescue Mission

When you rescue a dog from the streets and brings him to a shelter, make sure you got a time plan. 


Many dogs are happy on the streets when being healthy and looked after. 



 Some “happy” street dogs ends up in cages for many years,up to 7-14 years! 

What Kind of Language do the Animals Communicate in?

0

My column from Tidningen Nära


What Kind of Language do the Animals Communicate in?
Can a foreign dog from Italy understand the Swedish language when adopted in that country?
The brilliance of animals is that they can communicate in any language.
Animals talk in images and emotions. Its as if we would see a silent film that changes shades like a mood ring. They have clarity in what they are sending and do not send out different or contradictory signals as we humans can do. We can say one thing but mean something completely different.
Children and animals have the cleanest and clearest communication.
What is scientifically proven is, when animals communicate (or small children) they transmit images. These inner images are 0.4 seconds faster than our spoken words. We can think of something and often the animal perceives (or receives) it.
Body language is of course also a major factor in the whole process of communication, just as with humans. However, the animals must be required to learn not their own language but also the human language.
Giovanni was a small terrier abandoned in a shelter. I sat down beside him and felt a tremendous sadness flowing from the little dog. He had lost someone he loved!
The owner of the shelter nodded, and told me that the dog’s owner had died, but the remaining members from the family didn’t want him. I laid down next to him and was only in the moment.
I was later told where his master was buried, and I took the dog with me to the cemetery. Directly, Giovanni jumped out and began to sniff, and then moved up to the newly made grave.
Later Giovanni jumped into the car and his energy field had changed. Several days later, we could see a huge difference in his behavior. He ate, and he eyes sparkled again.
At the cemetery, I could “think” the emotions in peace and quiet while Giovanni picked up “pictures”. There was no one around that could interfere with us, with his or her negative feelings, or send pictures that they felt sorry for Giovanni. Pity turns into negative emotions and allows children and animals to translate them into a message of  “useless”. They feel like “no one likes me”.
A few days later Giovanni was adopted. His new energies attracted the new family, an elderly couple, like his former master.
Animal Language has no words; energies can speak all languages. If we are clean and clear in our thoughts and flow we then become understandable. Swedish as well as  Italian.
That’s Amore!

Shelter Sunday

0
Todays shelter day at Rosellas place. Nicky, Chris, Bianca, Lauren and Neil of course other wonderful volunteers spent Sunday helping out. Cleaning, brushing and loving up on those that sits behind bars.

Bianca was so happy to see Nicky again. Brushed and getting out to walk. Green grass, thats life.

King was found by a volunteer very sick and probably abused. He is doing progress and this time our volunteer could brush him. We want to adopt him and got a wonderful home. However, the rescue woman doesn’t want to adopt him outside Italian border.

We are heartbroken about this decision!

Puppy season!!!

Thank you all for making this Sunday special for the animals, and of course for all volunteers.
