When Pets Act Like Children

TJ Puts On the Brakes
by Jodi McLean

TJ

Pet owners who don’t have human kids tend to say “my pets are my children.”  In this case, my dog actually acts like a child!

I don’t know if this is generally funny, or just extremely entertaining to me and my family.  Our dog TJ has such an expressive personality!  He’s like a kid with a lot of emotion.  When he goes to Dad & Brenda’s house, he loves it so much he doesn’t want to leave.  They have a big back yard overlooking a lake with lovely breezes and plenty of room to run and things to chase.   Usually, TJ LOVES to “go for a ride!”   But when it’s time to leave Grandma & Grandpa’s house, we can’t get him in the car.  We decided that we should record it.  Dad & Brenda get a big kick out of his antics. 

Moms & Dads of human children – do your kids do this when it’s time to leave Grandma & Grandpa camp?   (Minus the leash.)

Very sweet. TJ is adorable – he may be looking for his gift from your cruise before agreeing to go home.

I begin with NAMASTE!! YES!! It will all work out and you will be led and shown the path. There is nothing to do but leave it in the hands of a Higher Power that cntodioares and directs our lives as it needs to be directed. I have been shown over and over in my life that all works out especially when you trust and let go. I have had at least three near death experiences and then also BIG moves in my life (one being East Coast to SD and now SD to Mexico) and each time when I have trusted and approached everything with Faith, Gratitude and Love all came to me as needed and well continues to come to me. When I moved to Mexico it was initially only with a 6 month intention and now it has been a year. My intention is to return to SD, but right now my calling is keeping me here in Mexico. I am learning sooooooo much and am sooooo blessed to be in one of the most beautiful places in the world with some of the sweetest and kindest people in the world. Blessings to you Jodi and I agree fully with Joanne Scanlon that you are full of Love and Light and so that is what you will attract!! NAMASTE!!
