How many times have you wished you could communicate with your pet or an animal in nature? It’s a universal wish of animal lovers to exchange thoughts with a creature who means so much to you.
Trained and skillful animal communicators often say that they’re only doing what we all have the capacity to do. Ours is just undeveloped. The average person doesn’t trust or recognize what she or he sees and hears from animals.
Animal communication has always intrigued us. But living with our especially talented communicators — our cocker spaniel Leaf and our wise black-and-white tabby Cuddles — has provided us with a deeper level of understanding this process.
This morning, Leaf made his customary trip to the acres of off-leash dog park near the river where he loves to explore. Allen has many experiences with him there, because Leaf seems to be more of who he truly is in that expansive freedom.
Today, a little boy was teetering like a tightrope walker across a fallen log that hovered above the forested ground below. Leaf typically enjoys performing a balancing act on this type of log — the higher off the ground the better.
Allen said to our daredevil dog, “Why don’t you go and show that little boy how it’s done?”
With his amber eyes Leaf looked up at Allen as if to say, Great idea! He trotted off to the log, leapt on it, and soon was strutting his expertise for the little boy. The child’s parents clapped for Leaf, and the boy giggled.
No one had taught Leaf to obey a command: Show the little boy how it’s done. We don’t think you’d find it in any dog training manuals. But Leaf understands this everyday kind of communication and proved it with his actions, much to everyone’s amazement.
What experiences have you had with pets or animals in nature in which they showed you irrefutably that you and the animal had communicated?
