Rescue Me! The Rescue of the Week ~

There was a lot of heavy breathing coming from the back seat of the car.  The windows were down and the wind was flying through the hair, the white flying dog hairs.  Ellen (human) and Luna (Great Pyrenees) had just adopted Stanley – another big fluffy white Great Pyrenees.

This week in “Rescue Me, The Rescue of the Week”, I am focusing on Great Pyrenees Rescue in Elbert Colorado – www.pyrescue.org

The Great Pyrenees Rescue is run by Linda and John Kryder,  a couple that has been married for almost 60 years and work together as a team for the betterment of the 9 dogs that are currently up for adoption.  The website says they have placed over 800 dogs, I thought they said that they had placed over 1700 dogs.

Linda and John Kryder will drive around in the Rocky Mountain region (maybe even a larger area than that) to either pick up or deliver Great Pyrenees.  They consider themselves to be a middle ground – they know that all the dogs will find great homes and they are patient.

The Kryder’s have a very nice set up for the dogs.  There are 3 fenced acres for play time.  There is a meet and greet area for the people and dogs.  They have wonderful kennels and runs for the dogs to be in. 

They have an intuition about who will be the right person for these dogs, yet, the Kryder’s allow the dog to pick.  They said that the dog knows when they meet with people who their people are.

The Kryder’s got their first Pyrenees in the early 1990’s and went through many trials and tribulations to figure out how to deal with such an independent thinker as their puppy proved to be.  With all the ups and downs, it still hooked them to that breed! 

Now they have gone to the dogs – the Great Pyrenees.  Some fun things to note about Great Pyrenees is they are mountain dogs, hailing from the Pyrenees mountains – Northern Spain and Southern France.  They are herd guardians, they could guard from a sleeping position.  Make no mistake; they can go from zero to 60 with an impressive bark and standoff ability in about 2 seconds!  When in a home, these guys could be put in the couch potato category – in fact they could guard from bed.

Great Pyrenees are wonderful companions as well as still great livestock dogs.  They are becoming known for their rescue work as well as their therapy work and excellent in fun competitive disciplines.  They adapt well and are social.  They recognize predators and have a special nurturing side for small, young or sick animals.

If you are looking to adopt a Great Pyrenees, take a look at the dogs that Linda and John Kryder have – one couple is driving from Florida to pick  up their second dog up this weekend!!  Or if you are looking for a wonderful, caring rescue to donate to – www.pyrescue.org

Stanley (pictured above) has settled in nicely at Ellen’s house. 

And of course Luna (pictured below) rules with an iron fist, or paw…..from the bed!

Broward County Humane Society and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Broward County Humane Society Benefit

Animal Communication mini class

Last Thursday we did a big benefit for the Broward County Humane Society in Ft. Lauderdale at the Jessica Sydney showroom. It was a lovely place to host such an event. Amidst the gorgeous furniture (yes I found what I’d like next for my living room) were plenty of stations with various things like New Age Books & Things crystals with some crystal blankets for horses, dogs and cats by Claudia Carpenter. Central Bark Doggy Daycare had a wonderful booth on good foods and the Humane society also had their retail shop up and going and a great dog massage practitioner – Hope of Dog Massage by Hope had a booth there.  New Age Books & Things had a set up with my book and new cd’s so I got to sign lots of books before speaking. (Oh goody!)

The other great thing is they had an abundance of wonderful things donated for the raffle. I wanted a tropical dog bed that would of course become a kitten bed as well. I didn’t win. Oh well.

They had smart things donated like rug cleaning service (HELLO!) air duct cleaners (can you say dog hair), lots of basket by fancy pet boutiques, riding lessons by a wonderful horse trainer (lots of horsey peeps there) and much much more. 

All in all it was a great event – a lot of money and awareness was raised,  everyone had fun and the best was how happy the dog Sebastian was that he got to talk to the group during my mini class.

The new farm, the new kitty and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

 

 

Life on the new farm with new kitty
Life on the new farm with new kitty

 

The new farm, the new kitty, the new, the new, the new…..We have a new member at our farm, (and we have a new farm).  We just added Francesca, the new kitty. It has definitely taken a toll on Isabella. Isabella is the lab that I adopted almost 2 years ago. It will be two years September 18th. Isabella doesn’t feel like the youngest anymore, the baby. Yet, she’s the baby dog!

What she also doesn’t realize is that all of our skills will be necessary here coming up as this is a childbride…..this cat is like a bag of kittens, she will be giving birth any minute. Talk about grow up time for the lab! And I will become Sistah Kitty Gramma.

Meanwhile, Olivia (7 yr. old ½ Border Collie) thinks I brought the cat home for her. And the cat  was supposedly feral. I moved in 2 weeks ago,  Mind you, moving in to the new place is at least a 2 bedroom home – plus me and two dogs, the horses arrived (so a full barn with equipment and tack) the day my friends delivered the new cat.

I call her Francesca. I had never met her. My friends told me about a cat they trapped in Idaho and I said I’d take her. They drove her out. The day she was delivered was the 2 year anniversary of Alexandria’s departure. Alexandria was my beloved cat of 13 years that disappeared two years and two weeks ago.  (Anyone who has read my book “Communication with all Life, Revelations of an Animal Communicator” knows all of these characters!!)

So Francesca, the feral cat (like Alexandria the feral cat I adopted 15 years ago) walks through and goes to the old spots that Alexandria loved – even though things are in boxes, she still is gravitating toward  pieces of furniture. She and Olivia sleep next to each other. Isabella has tried to chase her and after two time outs – she gets this will be her best friend. In fact just tonight Isabella was asleep on the couch and I sat with her. I put Francesca on my lap and Francesca immediately wanted off. How did she get off of my lap – oh she just walked over Isabella. Awesome.

It almost feels like a case for reincarnation, don’t you think? Or sent to me by my darling Alexandria? Alexandria could be on the other side or in someone else’s living room and her continued care for my wellbeing sent in this adorable cat with the same origins as her………..for that kitty love. Her intention alone of continuing to take care of me sent in her clone personality wise. (I mean down to not covering poop because she expects me to say – here let me clean that up for you while also expecting me to hand over my veggies, etc.) It’s as if Alexandria never left, I just have a different coloring but same behavior, same feelings – even with Olivia.  

I’ve included a picture of Francesca with my book and with the Hay House UK version of my book with a different cover. Doesn’t she look like the kitten on the cover?    Francesca found the Hay House UK version of my book

Is can always be found at www.joanranquet.com.  E-mail me at joanranquet@joanranquet.com. You can also find me at www.facebook.com/joanranquet or www.twitter.com/joanranquet. I’m learning more and more about the other social networkings as well.

The world of small dogs, revelations (and random thoughts) of an Animal Communicator

For the full report on my students experience on the Chihuahua Festival please go to my Communication with All Life University social networking site and feel free to join if you are an Animal Communication Enthusiast: http://communicationwithalllifeu.ning.com/profiles/blogs/adventures-at-the-chihuahua It’s pretty funny. Both the students that I sent up there were in for quite a surprise. That day I was at a different event where I was around large and small dogs, rescue dogs, recue cats, great dog trainers, all sorts of wonderful pet businesses or entrepreneurs. But my students had an eye opening education that I don’t think either will forget…….The world of small dogs.

It is an entirely different world. I have to gear up for that world because I’m going to South Florida here shortly. It’s a type and a landscape – I mean South Florida, Southern California – that is my bigger exposure to the world of small dogs. Perhaps New York City dogs……..the other places I’ve lived – Denver, Seattle – it’s definitely bigger dogs. So the idea that there was this Chihuahua Festival up here in the PNW with 300-400 Chihuahua’s is amazing – I feel like it’s like some Faerie Festival!!

However, it is a most unique world. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with day wear and formal wear for a dog – no sirree…. Clothing for a dog can actually have the affect of the animal feeling its whole body and feeling safe and confident in their clothes when in reality, they live in a much more vulnerable world being that small. I personally don’t want a dog on the dinner table – perhaps that is just me. (And why is it I’m fine with a cat on the table – perhaps it’s the Egyptian origin of cats being Gods and knowing that dogs are opportunists.)

The world of small dogs vs. large dogs is a very different life than what I have with my two dogs; when I say “let’s go do chores” they race out the door to help, to smell , to do fun dog things. My dog Olivia has lived in the city, suburbs, farms and beach with me. We’ve been city chicks and we’ve been farm chicks. Yet either setting, we have expectations and training.

I think the first and foremost difference between the world of large and small dogs is training. The way we train (or forget to train) small dogs is very different. People become enamored with the cuteness. The fragile….and oh it’s something I have to treat like a china doll. Meanwhile, there is nothing cute about someone biting your ankle when it gets out of hand. (Did I mention that today a rooster came after me? On the one hand that would appear harmless, I mean rooster vs. Joan – yet it drew blood. And my feelings were hurt.) The same is so with small dogs.

I once went to talk to a toy poodle. That little guy was so vicious that he was dangling from my arm. Thankfully it was just a fatty spot and not a muscle tear or tendon or vein. Sometimes it’s the fear aggression that can be the worst kind because it appears to come out of nowhere.

I would love to see Cesar Milan do an entire episode of Chihuahua’s. Could you just see him walking through a sea of Chihuahuas in slow motion sepia tone? Perhaps the episode would just be dedicated to perhaps the aftermath of puppy mill raid and what to do with all of these terrified little beings and give them their marching orders. Now there’s a thought. A really random thought. But cuteness aside, I bet those would be the most adoptable Chihuahua’s on the planet.

I’m sitting here on my friends farm with fingers crossed that I am moving onto my new farm within the next few days. I can’t wait to get back to chores with my dogs, routines and hikes. My friend’s farm is equipped with a pug. I even have different expectations with Sophie (the pug) than I do my own. It’s been funny to watch myself and how much I expect her to stay in a down stay like I demand of my own. And part of it is she’s not my dog – what are my training expectations but the real part if I’m being honest is I don’t expect her to do the down stay because she’s a small dog…..and I know the training hasn’t gone into her like the others here because – she’s a small dog. Oh such is the life in the world of small dogs.

Lots of Animal Communication and other random thoughts……..

What a day. I had to either split myself in two, teleport myself, admit to a parallel universe or send students to an event that I couldn’t attend. I chose the latter. So I was at the Mill Creek Festival speaking and teaching Animal Communication and I sent two of my Communication with All Life University students to the Chihuahua Festival to talk to 300-400 Chihuahuas.

I had fun, I got to connect with every pet rescue whether it was a dog rescue, cat rescue, horse rescue, a pet business, pet services, dog trainers, holistic vets……people got to meet me – the local pet psychic or animal communicator. My students got a glimpse of my world – a day in the life of an Animal Communicator. I think they were stunned.

When you are studying Animal Communication, you set up a safe zone…..suddenly; there they were with literally hundreds of darling distractions, plus the people and whatever events were going on (i.e. agility, cute tail contests, etc.) So I’m very proud of how well my students performed while also taking in the fact that it ain’t all glamorous!!!!

For me, I got to watch the Dock Diving at the Mill Creek Festival. Quite entertaining. I wanted to come home and get my dogs and take them back there. As a matter of fact, it was so warm out, I was prepared to dock dive without dogs or winning any sort of award on my way out.

And as for my event, it was hot, it was short, but I taught some committed people. I love teaching…..the people did great for all of the distractions of a big event. The people did so well right off the bat that we got to talk to many animals even if for just one question. It was great fun.

So here I am, I am here. I love days like today where Animal Communication is so in demand…..where education on Animal communication is in demand. And truthfully, the more I can connect up with the pet rescues, the dog rescues, the cat rescues, the horse rescues, all of the animal rescues, we can create education that results in forever homes. It’s all about education.

Of course, I send people to my 10 Easy Steps to Better Communication with your Pet on my website: http://www.joanranquet.com. And truly, some of the best advise I have to admit is in my book “Communication with All Life, Revelations of an Animal Communicator”……..but for my students today, nothing can replace that experience. Thankfully, I can offer plenty of that because I haven’t mastered bi-tri or multiple relocation yet.
