When Your Energy’s Gone to the Dogs

Last Saturday, in a state of post-facial bliss, I took my dogs, Jasper and Elsie, for their five-mile walk. They are normally well-behaved, but that day they were perfect.

As in, who are these dogs!

Just the week before we’d been out and they were so out of control it was as if the last eighteen months of dog training had never happened. I’d been looking forward to my workout because I was feeling more stressed than usual and exercise is part of how I relieve stress.

Instead, by the time we finished, I felt worse.

Hmmm. The night I was blissed-out, they were angels. And the one where I was tense and edgy, they were crazed.

Not hard to figure out whose energy they were channeling.

Energy matters. And not just with your pets!

    Great example! Our energy is just as real as electricity (I guess it is literally electrical, if you get technical about it), and even if we can’t see it, it’s always there, either zapping those in our path or lighting the way. Dogs KNOW.
