|What Is Your Passion or Your Story||
Co-Founder of Shadow’s Fund, a rescue organization and sanctuary for senior dogs and pit bulls. Our mission is to help those that seem to have so little hope get a 2nd chance at love, life, and joy.
|What Do You Want Us To Mention On The Show or Ask You||
We really hope to inspire people to give pit bulls a chance. They used to be the #1 family dog in this country. They are exploited, abused and abandoned maybe more than any other breed, over bred and dumped and shelters, and the last to be adopted. They are so loving and eager to please and have such big hearts. They deserve for people to look beyond the myths.
|Name of Animal||
|History or Story||
Ace was found as a stray, taken to a local shelter, bailed out by a nice family who could not keep him but did not want him to die. He was boarded at a very nice boarding facility and then came to our sanctuary. He is very distrustful of people and can only be handled by a couple of us. He actually bit one of our volunteers out of fear. We intend to stand by him and give him his bets shot at finding balance, trust, and love so that he can eventually find a home.
|Questions You Would Like To Ask The Animal||
What happened to make you so distrustful?
How can we help you feel more comfortable?
Do you know that you are safe now and that you are surrounded by people who will never hurt you, and want to make your life better?
What can we do to make your life better while you are with us?
We have been unsure about introducing you to other dogs because of possible aggression. Would you like to play with other dogs or do you prefer not to?
Is there anything you would like to tell us?
We would like him to know he is safe, loved and valued. We want to help him live his best possible life and we need to understand how to do that.
Video of my session with standard poodle Simone in Atlanta and her dad E Vincent Martinez.
In June of 2009, E. Vincent Martinez launched fashionado.net. The fashion inspired website has grown to include celebrity interviews, movie reviews, travel and entertainment. Fashionado also follows Martinez through all of his adventures and fabulous fashion parties. In 2010, fashionado was named Best Fashion Blog by the Atlanta Fashion Awards and it also made the list of the Top 100 Fashion Bloggers Worldwide by Sparkah, a marketing firm in NYC.
Most recently (summer 2011) E. Vincent Martinez was named one of the best dressed Atlantans by the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Access Atlanta.
I had a pet psychic session with Vincent Martinez and his standard poodle Simone. Vincent recently blogged about this session on Fashionado.net
Vincent wrote in his blog post:
“Lick, yawn and blink,” instructed pet psychic Laura Stinchfield to my black standard poodle, Simone. Also known as an animal communicator, we spent nearly thirty minutes with Laura.
Earlier in the day, Laura Stinchfield did the Atlanta media circuit with appearances on radio and morning tv shows. She encountered a skeptic or two along the way, though probably just for ratings sake.
So, I went into this meeting with an open mind. I was actually excited and eager to learn what my dog might be thinking or feeling!
Laura said that Simone’s intelligence is strong and it forces her to over-think everything which causes her to be overly cautious and fearful of her surroundings. [Made perfect sense to me.] That’s where the instructions/homework to “lick, yawn and blink” came to play. Those actions are “calming signals” as explained in the video. Laura asked Simone to enjoy just being a dog.
Of course, I was curious about the communication process. You’ll notice in the video that Laura gets close to Simone’s face and whispers things that only she can hear. They were completely focused on one another. At times Laura would speak out loud for both of us to hear. I was amazed with Simone’s captivated behavior. Never has this happened with a stranger.
Laura explained how she and animals communicate. She discovered at an early age that she could talk with her pets through the ability to see images that are in their head [that tell a story]. Additionally, Laura can hear their thoughts… but she added that pets will not betray an owners trust by revealing private moments or situations. A comforting thought!
At the end of the session, Simone gave Laura a lick on the face. I was shocked. She rarely licks. That was all the evidence I needed to know that something had happened. That a connection had been made.
Are you wondering if Simone’s behavior changed after the session with Laura? The answer is yes. Yes because I left with a better understanding of how to relate to my pet. I wouldn’t mind a follow up session. Laura may be returning to Atlanta early in the new year so I may get that chance. And you!
Dolly the Border Collie says,
“Sheep herding is not a good sport for me ’cause I want to spread the sheep out and run with them not put them all together and walk slow.”
We talk about why I do not talk to lost animals, Laura talks to a few dogs that have been rescued, how a dog feels in their old age, a dog that has passed away and if their person could have done more for them, why a dog doesnt like other dogs… and our resuce guest Cody from http://www.shadowsfund.org

|History or Story||
Lulu was a stray found in San Luis Obispo County. Emaciated and infested with fleas, she ended up at an automotive repair center. The staff took her in, but it was clear she had not had very much human interaction. She went home with the manager, but with already having 4 dogs, Lulu could not stay. They brought her to Shadow’s Fund where she has lived for the last 8 months. It took her a long time to trust us, but she has opened up so much to us over the last few months.

People have been asking for an update on Joey. The vets have thought his progress to be a miracle. There is no longer fluid in his lungs.
Though on Friday night I noticed joeys front legs were swollen. My vet was off this weekend & by text message he said it could probably wait till Monday. Joeys legs are very big now. I speculate fluid but truly dont know. They are very sore when he walks & has that feeling of when you have a rubberband around your arm too tight. He is very hungry & thirsty – a sign his hyperthyroidism is kicking back up
Of course I have been worried! I am hoping it is some strange reaction to his herbs & we just need a change of them. His herbalist is back in the office today.
I have a funeral to go to today of my good friend Josie. So I will probably drop joey off at the vet for a good chunk of the day :-(. A lot of driving. I may even take him to the funeral with me.
Joey wants to say, “I trust my doctors & I am going to be better & enjoy life. Moms not ready to let me go she says I can live in my 20s. I believe her because there have been angels keeping fluid out of my lungs. And I’d rather be sore when I walk then not be able to breathe. I’ll be happier when I feel better.”
Oh it’s hard to see my little guy suffer. He is so amazing!
Stormy my Aussie woke me up and said,
“I had a dream I was flying in the stars. I asked myself ‘is this heaven?’ and I then heard ‘no this is the heart of the universe'”
We talk to a cat that pees in her food dish, one that pees on the couch, a deceased pet, a dog with allergies, a dog that humps other dogs at the beach…

About Queen Deanie:
This was written by Queen Deanie’s Foster mom, “For the sake of expediency, I am copying and pasting the first narrative I wrote about Queen Deanie shortly after I rescued her in December of 2009:
“When I was born, I’m sure my mother thought I was a little princess and would grow up to be a queen one day. Neither of us knew then how hard the first couple years of my life would be!
My story adds a new dimension to the definition of an old holiday greeting – “Happy New Year”. On December 20th, 2009, I was “discovered” by a kind lady named Ms. Deanie who’d spent decades in the world of theatre. As a former professional dancer and actress, she spotted my star quality despite my frightful appearance! I was a mess – rail thin, missing much of my hair, grieving for my missing babies and barely alive. Ms Deanie found me curled up in a ball at the edge of thick woods, in brutally cold weather, waiting to die. Not one to shy from a challenge, Ms. Deanie recruited two other caring ladies, Ms. Frances and Ms. Hannah, and the rescue began. Although I was terrified of anything on two legs, after more than an hour, I gave in and they whisked me away to my first foster home where I began my recovery.
Twelve weeks and two foster moms later – Ms. Leslie and Ms. Kate – How Do You Like Me Now?? I’m a new woman, a real Lady – no more babies for me to worry about ever again – and my coat just shines. At 40 pounds, I’m a petite girl and don’t want to gain another ounce! I’ve a very sweet temperament, have learned to walk nicely on a leash and every day of my life is like Christmas morning! If you can lead me to the life I deserve, please call my surrogate Mom, Hannah Tostensen, at 912-437-6169 or 912-617-6564, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Since that time, I have updated Deanie’s narrative and it appears on her Petfinderlisting at HARTofmcintosh, zip 31305. We are still fostering Deanie but I want with all my heart for her to have a home where she will be the apple of someone’s eye. I will continue to foster her until the right home comes along but playing musical dogs is very, very stressful for me and my husband, who will be 84 years old next month.”

Cousteau the horse says to his person,
“I am not worried. When the time is right everything will be ok. I’m sure of it.”
I find often it is the animal that soothes the people when there is fear and worry.
I talk about an experience I had when I was 12 years old with fish and a higher power. I also give listeners a tip on how to talk to animals.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB20NjIiGlI nolink]
If this little testimonial can in any way help you with clients, you have my permission to use it. You might also want to give them a word about my background so they will know I am a trustworthy person.
As you know I’m the granddaughter of J. Ogden Armour who was head of Armour and Co. Meat Packing. I was raised in Chicago and now own El Mirador Estate in Montecito, Ca. where I make my home. This property has been in my family for almost 100 years. After my mother, Lolita Armour Mitchell, died in 1976 a portion of El Mirador was sold to the film director, Ivan Reitman. He and his family have been my neighbors and friends. I attended his oldest daughter, Catherine’s wedding two years ago. I am sure Ivan would vouch for my integrity.
You have a gift that can help a lot of people care for their pets, even to saving the life of a well-loved companion dog a you did mine. It is my hope that you can reach many more people and be of service to them.
With great respect,
Lolita Mitchell Lanning
Today Sierra lies at my feet as I write. Occasionally she lifts her head to gaze at me, her melt-away chocolate brown eyes shining with love. Had it not been for Laura Stinchfield’s last minute intervention Sierra would be dead.
On Friday, June 24th, I was scheduled to leave Santa Barbara with my two German Shepherds for the three day drive to my summer house in Washington. My nephew and his wife would make the trip with me. But on Monday, June 20th, Sierra began to stagger when she walked. On Tuesday she was lurching to the right side, barely able to walk. By Wednesday my 12 year old dog was falling over. Two years ago x-rays of her spine had shown severe deterioration where the spine meets the hip. Was it fair to prolong her life?
On Thursday morning I made the heart wrenching phone call to my vet. My old friend could not get into my car, could hardly walk and was obviously suffering. Would he come to my house and put her out of her misery? The vet would come over at 12:15. Trying to hold back the tidal wave of tears that would break through my dam of reserve when my dog died, I turned to Laura and asked her to give Sierra permission to leave me.
Laura Stinchfield had entered my life nine years earlier when I rescued Sierra from an animal shelter. Bone poking thin, no hair on her tail and grief in her eyes; she obviously had lived through tragedy no one knew of. She’d been found on a mountain side, hunting for food and was lactating. Her puppies were never rescued. I needed to know more about her life. Four people, including my veterinarian told me about Laura and her ability to communicate with animals. I called her. She came to my home. With great skepticism I watched her “talk silently” to my dog. Up came Sierra’s head, her ears pricked and she stared into Laura’s face for a full five minutes. There was no doubt in my mind that Laura and my dog were communicating. But the story she told Laura was too sad to tell.
Laura and I became friends and have remained so for nine years. She has helped me with 3 dogs, 1 laying hen and a wild squirrel. So, on that sorrowful Thursday as I waited for the vet to come and end Sierra’s life, I spoke to Laura by phone and asked her to tell Sierra she had my permission to leave me. Laura does not need to be physically present to reach a dog. What Sierra “told” her astonished me. She “said”, “I don’t want to die today. It is not my time. My spine doesn’t hurt, I’m dizzy and I just need to rest and I want to go to Washington with mom”.
But, I was forward moving, had made up my mind that euthanasia was the humane thing for Sierra. I argued at length with Laura, even raised my voice. Laura spoke to my dog again. Sierra said “Please, please tell mom that if she lets me die today, she will have a troubled soul”.
That did it.
I cancelled the vet’s call and asked Laura to tell Sierra she was going with me. We left for Washington Friday morning. My nephew had to lift Sierra into and out of my van. On Saturday, my dog was getting in and out of the van by herself with difficulty. By Sunday she was doing it with ease and on Monday she was no longer staggering when she walked. We were dumbfounded. We went to our vet in Washington on Tuesday. After he examined Sierra and heard her symptoms and progress, the vet told me Sierra has Old Age Vestibular Syndrome. It is a condition common in elderly dogs that affects the inner ear and ruins their balance. Nothing had to be done as this syndrome corrects itself in time. He made this diagnosis one month ago. Had I learned of this syndrome after putting Sierra to sleep, can you imagine the troubled soul I would be carrying?
Yesterday, Sierra burst out of my house, raced across the deck and cleared two steps that lead to the lawn with ease. She didn’t even wobble. Last night she picked up a squeaky toy and played tug-o-war with me. She’s 90% recovered.
Today Sierra lies at my feet as I write. She is now sound asleep. Laura has been given the gift of communication with animals but she has given me a gift beyond belief: Sierra is going to wake up.
Show about animals that have been rescued. We talk to many horses and dogs.

Gibbs Is The Featured Adoptable Pet
Whitney Writes About Gibbs. “Gibbs was pulled from a rural shelter in Southern VA. This animals in this shelter are rarely adopted, and most dogs that come in there are discarded hunting hounds. Rescue groups are almost the only hope for these animals. Gibbs immediately caught my eye as he was so attractive and looks-wise was “adoptable”. However, Gibbs was plastered to the bed in his cage and wouldn’t look me in the eye. He wouldn’t come out of his cage and when anyone walked near him he would urinate and defecate. I asked them to please keep him another week and handle him more and as long as he wasn’t biting that I would come back for him.”

There is not a week that goes by that someone does not call me with, “Help! My cat is peeing and pooping out side the litter box!” These cats do their excretions on piles of clothing, the kitchen counter, stovetops, the toaster, the bathroom sink, walls, in shoes, on paintings, and even on computer keyboards. Just to name a few places.
This can be going on for days or for years and believe it or not after a few adjustments on the human’s part and / or a communication with me the behavior stops. I have heard almost every reason for why a cat pees and poops outside the litterbox.
From a physical problem like a urinary track or kidney infection to
“I want my person to watch TV with me more (Dancing with the stars to be exact)”,
“I just want my person to say hello to me when they come home.” “I am worried about my persons health they need to go to the doctor and he is not listening to me.”
“I hate my persons new spouse please tell her to get rid of him.”
Because of this problem I have seen humans dump cats in a strange neighborhood, put them to sleep, find them a new home, make them outdoor only cats or send them to a rescue organization.
Here are the top eleven quick fixes for this problem. Please give your cat a few weeks to change their behavior. If you do these things there is a high probability that your cat may stop.
Take your cat to the vet to rule out urinary tract infection and kidney problems. These cats pee where they sleep, on cold surfaces like tile or in the tub, rugs and on clothing. Feed your cat high-quality food so they do not get these problems.
Take the top off the litter box. Tops lock in the smell of cat pee and disturb your cat’s senses. Have the litter box in a well-ventilated location.
Use “World’s Best Cat Litter”. It is dust free. Many cats have a hard time breathing in the dust that is created by clay litter.
Clean the litter box often. Cats are neat freaks and hate to walk on their own poop and pee.
Put out multiple boxes. Have a litter box for each cat. They don’t like to share or they use one for urine and one for poop. If you have a large house or two stories put boxes in several locations. Especially for the very young and the very old.
Experiment with the depth of the litter. Older cats with hip and knee problems like to have less litter so that their joints don’t have to work so hard when they squat.
Experiment with the size of the litterbox. Some older cats have a hard time stepping into a litterbox where the sides are tall. Creating a ramp or another step into the box helps.
Make sure litterbox is not touching a wall. Some cats like to stand on the side so they need space around the box.
Have at least a 15 min period during the day, at the same time everyday, that you give your cat your undivided attention. (Pet, brush, play, talk to, give treats, look at, listen to).
10. If you cat is only peeing when a certain person is coming over, get rid of that person. From my experience concerning this issue, cats are usually 98% of the time a good judge of character.
11. Most important: Explain to your cat, “When you pee & poop outside the litterbox it makes me upset. Please pee and poop in the litterbox. I am trying to figure out what is wrong. Can you give me another sign to show me what is wrong?” Then watch your cat closely. Watch how they walk. Are they sore around their hip area (kidneys)? Do they strain to pee? Watch with no judgments and you may figure out just how to correct the problem. Often cats use this behavior to communicate that they want to tell you something.
On this weeks show we talk to some animals in heaven, a little dog that ran way, a scared growling doxi mix, and our featured pet for adoption: Bofum a rescue Golden Retriever who has two broken legs. Steve introduces Bofum from Southern Golden Retriever Rescue

Featured Pet For Adoption
Listen to what he has to say in the last 20-min of Pet Psychic Radio
About Bofum: This is Bofum. He was a stray and in six weeks, nobody has claimed him. He was turned into rescue because he was having a difficult time walking. We took him to the vet and did some x-rays and Doc came out and said, “Well he broke both of them.” So we named him Bofum. He is about two years old and dog, child and cat friendly so we assume he was with a family.
Questions for Bofum on Pet Psychic Radio: We would love to know what happened to him. He was not hit by a car because the legs bones are not shattered. How did he get into this condition and how did he get lost. And of course who wouldn’t make every effort to find him. What does he want in a family for his future? Children, cats, dogs, stay at home parents. Can he stay alone while someone goes to work? And is he in any pain. He needs to let us know when something hurts or he thinks its time to change the casts.

I have heard that 80 to 90 percent of the thoughts running through our heads are negative, and that 98 percent of the thoughts that we are having today we had yesterday.
Animals pick up the thoughts, feelings, and images in our minds. Our thoughts greatly affect their lives. There is an enormous amount of suffering in the lives of the world’s animals. Some of us have animals that are either sick or have been abused, exploited, or neglected. Changing our thoughts in our daily lives is an enormously powerful way to improve the health and well-being of our own animals, and the health and well-being of the world’s animals.
This is my family’s basic routine. If you follow it, you will notice positive changes not only in the animals’ lives but in your lives as well. If an animal is not in your presence, you can take a few moments to look at the animal’s picture and send messages, even if your friend is far away. This will work for animals that are at shelters awaiting new people, for animals who wait at home while you are on vacation, and for animals you have seen in the news, such as the elephants that are exploited for entertainment.
1. Wake up and say “good morning” to each of your animals, whether they are present or at a distance.
2. Affirmations set the tone for the day. These affirmations were written by my two dogs, my three cats, my bunny, and myself. Repeat affirmation three times in one sitting. It takes three times to be imprinted in our consciousness.
My body is body is well-balanced, healthy, and calm.
I am strong and flexible.
I have healthy teeth, gums, skin, and fur.
I digest life easily. I always feel nourished.
My future is bright and positive.
I forgive others for my past. I am safe.
I am loving and accepting toward others.
I am brave and trusting.
I am caring, loving, and peaceful.
I am happy.
I am beautiful and useful.
I am good enough.
I have healthy relationships with my family.
I have many friends.
I calm myself and communicate with others by licking, yawning, or looking away.
Creation starts in the moment.
My family loves me.
I am right where I am supposed to be.
My life is exciting and fun.
My life is divinely guided.”
3. Do some form of exercise every day. Play with your cat or walk with your dog. While you are exercising, tell them, “This is good for your heart and for your whole body. This helps you to stay healthy.” Say the affirmation, “I am slim, toned, strong, and flexible.”
4. Play every day. Even with the older animals. It is extremely healing to smile with your pet. While you are playing say, “Oh, we are having so much fun. It is so good to smile. We are happy.” Then say the affirmations, “I love to play. I have so much fun. My people love me.”
5. Feed the best food and supplements you can, and when you feed the animals, say, “This food and these supplements are the best. They help support your body.” Then say the affirmation, “I digest food easily. My body is nourished. Thank you, food, for making me strong and healthy.”
6. At nighttime, before you go to bed, repeat the morning affirmations three times and add the affirmation. “I have had such a wonderful day. I am loved. I sleep peacefully.”
