Mattie

 

This is Mattie.

She died August 8, 2018 at the age of 17.

Mattie says from Heaven, “I am young again. I am the kind of young that cannot slip on the floor.  I can see really well and I can jump up on the sofa.

I saw Jazzie (‘sister’ dog who passed away last year)

first thing and we went running around in circles. It was so exciting to see each other. I have seen the cats too. The cockatiel is here too.  She flies around and we are all together again. We are in family love.”

Pet Strollers

To stroll or not to stroll

First Appeared in the

Santa Barbara News-Press

09/26/18

 

 

I started to use a stroller with my late Australian Shepherd, Stormy, when he started rambling slowly, his elbows turned out until he’d stop to stare at me and then lay down with a huff. I purchased the DoggyRide Novel Dog Jogger-Stroller (seen in photo above with some modifications), a deluxe off-road stroller that could be converted to a bike trailer. Stormy rode in style with his adorable black head peering out, smiling at everyone he saw. He barked at seagulls at the beach as we pushed him through deep sand, up to the water’s edge. He watched sunrises and sunsets as he was pushed up mountain fire roads, and shared his love with thousands of people in towns and conventions across the West Coast. Several years into his strolling, as he aged, I had to prop him up with a pillow or open up the front so his legs could stretch out. There is no doubt in my mind that strolling added years to his life. Instead of lying at home on a dog bed staring at the walls, he was out exploring and eating snacks at restaurants. He died at age 16. His last strolling adventure the day before was at his favorite grassy park.

Out in nature, I was confident pushing Stormy’s stroller. “That is so cool,” people would remark. But my introverted self was more self-conscious in town: “Oh my gosh, Laura. I had to stop. I thought you had a baby.”

“No, it’s Stormy,” I would reply, shrinking a little bit in embarrassment, thinking to myself, “Is this what women do when they don’t have kids? Am I that crazy dog lady?” I gave myself a pass. I am The Pet Psychic. What else do people expect?
These feelings came to pass as Stormy’s social media fan club grew. “Ahhh, Stormy,” I would hear as strangers with gleaming faces surrounded the stroller, showering Stormy with love and he looked up at them with his big chestnut eyes and smiled for hundreds of selfies. Cars drove by with children hanging out the windows, screaming, “Hi, Stormy!”
I have sat in many clients’ living rooms, suggesting strollers for their aging or injured dogs. The husbands always stand up, roll their eyes and pace a few steps. “I am not going to take my dog out in a stroller.” The wife crosses her hands in her lap and looks at her dog with a grin, holding herself back from searching Amazon, I surmise. A month later, I am emailed pictures of the husband strolling with the dog at the beach or him posing with the dog, which is in the stroller, at an outdoor restaurant.

“Thank you for convincing me to get a stroller,” a friend once told me as we stood in line at a coffee shop, her two small dogs asleep in their stroller, sheltered by the cover. “People are much more understanding. They are happy I have them contained. I take them into restaurants, stores, hotels and coffee shops all the time. Living in New York City with the dogs is so much easier now. I am so glad I have them off the dirty street until we get to the park.”
A good stroller can be a monetary investment, but it is well worth the price. It’s been 10 years since I purchased Stormy’s stroller, and it has since strolled five other dogs, including, now, a rescue beagle as she loses weight until she can walk the full distance on her own.
Our egos often get in the way of living our lives more fully. Don’t let your ego hold you back. Be happy and take the leap: Experience the joys of strolling with your dog.

Troubleshoot your pet’s symptoms

Troubleshoot your pet’s symptoms

FIRST PUBLISHED IN THE SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS

May 02, 2018

   

Often pet owners and veterinarians will contact me to find out what is physically wrong with an animal. It may have some strange behavioral problems, be limping or panting, but no one can figure out the cause of the issue. Other times, an animal may have a diagnosis and be in treatment, but it is still not thriving. While I cannot diagnose an illness, I can determine exactly how an animal is feeling and where. I can relate that to other animals and what their diagnoses were. Oftentimes, this information will help veterinarians know where to look in the body and how to better treat the animal’s symptoms.

Dane, a shepherd mix, was a seizure alert dog who suddenly stopped alerting his person to her seizures. No one could figure out why. When he spoke with me, he told me that he had a deep pain in his left ear. It caused him so much pain that he had a hard time concentrating. The veterinarian looked in his ear and found an infected ear drum. Once that was treated, he started to alert again.

A cat named Lilly told me she was biting her people because she had a sharp pain in her neck and head. Whenever her people went to pet her, she would lift her head up higher and it would pinch a nerve. Because she was overwhelmed with a feeling like an ice-cream headache, should would bite her people out of intense fear. Lilly was adjusted by a chiropractor and put on a natural anti-inflammatory herb. Once the pain was gone, she stopped biting.

Pablo, the quarter horse, started to refuse jumps and buck his rider off. The trainers swore it was behavioral, but his person felt differently. Pablo told me that his new saddle hurt his back; it pinched at his withers and came down hard on his back when his rider would sit deep. They got him a better-fitting saddle and he never refused a jump or bucked his person off again.

Mable the cat, who was acting lethargic, told me when she breathed it felt like cold, shallow air. My experience told me this could be a heart problem or something going on with the lungs. I urged her people to take her to the vet. After an ultrasound, they found lung cancer.

So do you need to be a pet psychic to figure out what your animal is feeling? No, I don’t believe you do. But I do believe you have to be aware and you have to be in tune with your own body. Oftentimes, animals will tell you how they feel. They will send you their own feeling and you might pick up on that feeling in your body but think the feeling is your own.

For instance, a dog may have a hurt shoulder and his human may intermittently start complaining about shoulder pain. A cat may have an infected tooth and the person may find himself rubbing his own jaw. If left alone, it can get much more serious, where we take on each other’s pains and illness. A cat that has kidney problems may have a human with a kidney infection.

If you suspect your animal has an issue, ask it to over exaggerate where it hurts or how it is feeling so you can know what is going on. Tell your pet that you want to know and to please show you with its behavior.

You can also tell your pet to send you the feelings it has in its body. Tell your pet to concentrate on being clear and then send you exactly how it feels. The feeling may not happen right away, but pay attention throughout the day. There is high probability that you will feel your animal’s issue. If you do feel something different, ask yourself, “How long have I been feeling that? Did I injury myself? Eat something? Is this mine? Or is this my animal’s?” After a while, you will be able to know very quickly if they are your feelings or if you are being empathic to your animal or even to the people near you.
