*Learn How to Talk to Animals with Professional Animal Communicator, Val Heart › Forums › Animal Talk Coaching Club Forum › Featured Animal Teacher (FAT) for April 2021 is Kathy’s Georgia
04/01/2021 at 2:31 pm #83347Moderator BarbModerator
Kathy has volunteered to host her dog, Georgia, as our next Featured Animal Teacher (FAT). You will enjoy getting to know this wonderful animal teacher. Gold and Platinum members will have an opportunity to connect with Georgia along with Val on the Q&A call Saturday, April 10. We encourage all of you to connect with Georgia now and through out the month.
Tune into Georgia first and see what you sense. It’s not just about getting words although that’s a lot of fun when it happens. Remember that telepathic comes from ‘tele’ meaning over a distance like telephone and television, and ‘pathic’ that comes from pathos. So literally telepathic is emotion over a distance.
How does Georgia feel to you? Happy? Sad? Excited? etc. Ask Georgia ice breaker questions as you might with any new teacher. It’s not about “getting the right answer” but about connecting with a wonderful animal.

Thank you for offering Georgia as the FAT. I sense beautiful and warm energy and am getting she’s a happy and friendly dog. I sense shining light on her and hear it comes from her mom in Spirit.
Georgia says she likes to have fun! Anything and everything that’s fun-it doesn’t matter what! I find almost anything fun. She said she Loves to dig and bury. She says she likes to bury bones and find them later. “I Love car rides,” she said. I got that there’s a red SUV and that she likes to sit in the front.
She said she Loves to get on mom’s bed, but really it’s both of yours and that she takes up most of the bed.
She said she gets groomed frequently and I got “pink bow” and an image of a pink bow.
Georgia said she Loves the water. I got an image of a lake.
She said her favorite thing to eat is chicken-fresh chicken that you give to her by hand and she delicately eats. She also sent me an image of her where she was supposed to be crunching a crunchy treat.
I also got “pretzel” and got that someone is very “bendy”-flexible. I got an image of someone doing a yoga pose and got a image of the person wearing purple pants.
She said she must go now and that she’s going to get a treat!
Love to Georgia!
04/01/2021 at 4:13 pm #83352
I am laughing at your last sentence. I think we were heading out to practice some rally and she knows she gets treats for that.:-)
Yes I think she is generally a happy and friendly dog. Her mom, DeeDee passed in Sept and I do sense her presence a lot.
I try to make things fun for her, especially since our DeeDee is gone, and doing fun things with/for Georgia helps me deal with that loss.
She does go in the car with me everywhere I go except when work, There have been times when she has even gone there, but no my van is blue.
She does go to bed with me at nite but usually lays at the bottom of the bed (that part is directly under the ceiling fan and cooler for her. Sometimes in winter I ask her to come cuddle with me and so she comes up beside me and we cuddle .
Yes, with her long coat she has to get groomed at least a little every day and yes she usually has a pink barrette .
water: different story. She loves to walk thru puddles, likes her bath but does not like lakes nor the ocean. I think it is the waves that she doesn’t like.
She does get a lot of fresh chicken, she is on raw diet, but for treats I have to cook it. But she does love her big milk bones.
You did an EXCELANT job!
Thank you so much for talking with her.

I just tried linking with Georgia. It was short and sweet because i find the longer i focus the more i start to dwell on what i am making up.
I explained to Georgia that i was learning and hoped she could be patient with me. She said “sure” with a happy smiling face.
When asked about her favourite toy i got a blue ball. She said she eats her meal on the kitchen floor. She said she doesn’t like to swim because it makes her coat feel strange afterwards. That was about the extent of it. I explained to Georgia that i would stop there because i found it hard to focus for long. She said she was very happy to talk to me again later.

Hi Kathy & Georgia,
Ahhh I’m smiling from ear to ear right now which is what Georgia made me feel when I met and connected with her just now. She is so happy:) She is so happy she is excitedly happy, literally grinning from ear to ear.
I instantly saw a yellow rubber chicken. I wish now I asked her more about it, instead of assuming it was a toy she had or liked.
I asked Georgia how she got her name. I told her I loved it. She said, “I came from Georgia.” 😂
I asked if she wore a collar and she showed me an orange collar. I felt like this collar isn’t worn all the time but particularly during hunting season. Which then led me to ask if she lived in the country and she confirmed she did.
I asked if she had any advice for me in regards to my animal communication journey and I felt pressure in my eyes & ears as if straining to see & hear. She told me to relax, let in the light and when you experience it you’ll understand. I thanked her for that (and she is right:))
I finished by asking her if she had a message for you. She showed me a women riding a horse. I asked her for more details and she said, “Mom loves to ride and I love to watch her. Everyone is happy!” 😊
Thank you SO SO SO much for the connection Georgia and thank you so much Kathy for sharing her with us. 🤗

Sorry for the late reply. I sent a reply last night via my ph but I see that it didn’t go.
I don’t know what happened unless she was playing a big joke on you and I didn’t think she was
like that. Or perhaps her little housemate chimed in and that’s who you were hearing.
Georgia does not have a blue ball nor does she eat off the kitchen floor. However her playmate does get fed in the kitchen and his dish is on the floor. Georgia has never been swimming as she is too afraid to go in the water, however she does like walking thru the big puddles when it rains and she doesn’t mind a bath.
Please try again with her. I told her she needs to be truthful when she talks to you all. But she does LOVE people and maybe was just so excited about it all that she was playing games (?)
04/02/2021 at 8:30 am #83370
Thank you so much for connecting with Georgia. I think she is being a bad girl and maybe enjoying this attention too much by telling stories. I always thought she was a sweet gentle loving dog but now I am seeing another side. Lets see:
She has a red collar and she only wears a collar when we go for walks. No, we do not live in the country; however she loves being outside, doesn’t mind getting dirty and I always say she should live on a farm.
That stinker has never been to Georgia unless it was in a previous life so who knows? Our briards are named with the French method of going by the alphabet; i.e. this is the S year, all briards are supposed to be named starting with S. Georgia was born during the G year. I was going to name her Gentle On My Mind as she was so gentle as a puppy, but I didn’t know what her call name could be. I knew if I let her go she would always be on my mind so I named her Georgia On my Mind – and then I kept her! and called her Georgia.
As for me riding a horse….ok, now I am wondering about something else. Could you all ask her if she was my girl (or boy) once before? I did live in the country and did have a wonderful horse. And one of my dogs was quite a jokester and yes I had to be VERY careful during hunting season.
This has opened opened up an entirely new can of worms and one worth pursuing.
Thanks so much for talking with her.
04/02/2021 at 10:20 am #83373Candy ZinckSilver Member
Thank you for the feedback:) when I saw the rubber chicken I felt this was a joke and it was at the very first of our conversation. Perhaps the joke was on us and we have to figure it out by not trying so hard.
I will absolutely connect with her again and dig deeper into your inquiry.
Thanks again. I love all the learning that comes from not being 100% right during each connection.
04/02/2021 at 10:59 am #83375
Well Briards are known for their sense of humor, and since her mum (whom she loved dearly) passed I think she has blossomed and ‘come into her own’ so maybe she is just playing jokes on us. I do love seeing her being so happy and confident.
Pls keep it up.

Looks like Georgia is keen on getting us to practice the identifying and confirming questions to be sure we are talking to who think we are talking to, in which lifetime, and if they are awake or dreaming.
Remember not to assume you know what they mean. For example, in a prior experience a horse answered the question about his favorite treat with ROUND RED which th enew owner took to mean apple. Turns out that wasn’t the case. The cover of the cookie jar was round and red.
We’re proud of all of you for practicing and know that learning takes time, and sometimes our teachers throw in tricks to keep us on our toes. Remember to use all your senses. Start with those that are strongest and move onto other later.
It isn’t about instant perfect, it’s about practicing in this safe space.

Not sure if this is how I do this?
I connected with Beautiful Georgia. I sensed a fun dog, proud of her fur coat, I asked if she would like to talk to a beginner? I heard: you’re making it too complicated, just listen with your doggie 🐶 ears 😃. You do this all the time, just believe in yourself. I love to take to two legged, they are fun. I feel she’s playful and way going. She’s also fast both physically and in her thought.
Thanks Kathy and Georgia 🙏🏻❤️🥳🐶
04/08/2021 at 7:37 am #83430
Thanks for talking with Georgia. I know she likes you all talking with her. Since she is the only one left now, I see her becoming more playful and out going like she was as a puppy. All her life she has been ;low man on the totum pole’ and gave in to the older dogs but now she is becoming so much fun.
Of course I can dote on her now. lol.
Some things you all can ask her: How does she like her new little playmate. Is she having as much fun with her Scentwork and Rally as I think she is. Would she like to have a new puppy to play with and teach? Is there anything she wants me to know?
She can be fast but she listens to me and waits for me all the time haha
Does she knows what is going on with her tummy? We seem to have some ongoing problems with that.
thanks again. You are doing great.
04/08/2021 at 8:41 pm #83443Jann JeffriesPlatinum Member
Georgia seemed excited to talk today. I could feel her rear end wagging.
I asked Georgia what she did today. I caught a very brief glimpse of an expanse of green grass (a park or similar) I couldn’t get any details. I wondered again about her favourite toy and felt excitement about a squeeky toy, a glimpse of a red plastic bone – then instantly I felt to dismiss this as my mind making it up!
I asked Georgia if she lives with other animals – cat. (Just read your feedback above so this is obviously wrong!)
[I went back and asked Georgia what the story was with the cat and did I get it wrong. I still got a very clear image of a light framed slender cat of pale colouring. I got the sense of it rubbing against Georgia. In a very happy voice tongue hanging out, Georgia said “we don’t all live in the same house” in a tone that suggested I am a bit short-sighted! 😀 – Is there a neighbours cat that visits? I asked if this was a now friend or from the past – I got “now” – with laughter!!!!]
Really having difficulty today so I stopped there thanking her for her time. She seemed a bit disappointed. So sorry.
Thanks for any feedback

I’ve been trying to connect with Georgia – here’s what I got so far:
She knows her own mind, she’s a leader. She happy, loves playing, being outside in a yard with flowers. A very sunny personality.
She likes chicken.
She likes to help, always wants to help.
I asked her how she helps you: she said: I ground her, I show her the way and she said: of course by loving you.
I got that she was not old, not young – somewhere in the middle. She values her life experience and uses it to help others.
It was very brief – I got interrupted by my dog who came in in a flurry of excitement. I will reconnect later and tomorrow.
She is just delightful.
Thank you Kathy,

I connected with Georgia and immediately I see her running in a beautiful field of greens and flowers. I am a free spirit! I love to run and be free! I am happy!
Would you please give me her age? She seems young or definitely young at heart if she is older.
Asking for message to you: too much sitting, we sit a lot.
I see her liking this particular chair looks like a lazyboy where she likes to be. I don’t see her sleeping in your bed at night.
Are you only pet at home? No, there is a cat.
Do you like the cat? Yes, does the cat likes you? Not sure, he/she hiss at me when I get too crazy. Would you please let me know if you have other pets? (i don’t want to read other people comments yet, I don’t want to be influenced.)
Thank you so much for letting us connect with your companion and taking the time to give us feed back, appreciated.
04/09/2021 at 3:09 pm #83462
HI Jann. So glad you connected with Georgia again. She loves taking with you all. The expanse of green grass was probably the park where I walk her every morning before going to work. Squeaky toy?
Yes, she does like squeaky toys, no hard or rubber toys. All my briards have only liked soft stuffed animals. Maybe because they are a herding dog? She does rather favor her bright pink fushia stuffed toy. Don’t know what it is.
Cat?? Ask her more about Mowgli. Doesn’t live with us? Probably wishful thinking! LOL Although I do have a roommate that lives upstairs and Mowgli doesn’t like to be alone so he spends a lot of time up there when I am gone.
Thank you for checking in with her. You are doing great!
04/09/2021 at 3:24 pm #83463
You all seem to be getting the essence of Georgia. She has a very sunny personality and exudes joy and happiness. She loves being outside and I think anything I do with her she considers it play. I call practicing work, but I am sure she considers it play, she is always so happy to be doing it.
Yes, she likes chicken, one of our mainstays.
She always tries to be good and do what I ask, guess that is a manner of helping. Yes, she does keep me grounded. I hope she knows how much she means to me.
She is not OLD but at an age where we start keeping close watch on our briards for the beginning of any health issue. I try to keep her in good shape with healthy diet, vitamins and exercise both physical and mental. She is a senior according to dog years, but no one can believe she is and she is certainly young at heart. 🙂 so yes, I guess ‘somewhere in the middle’ is good. I think you got her pretty good. That was great.
04/09/2021 at 3:43 pm #83464
Georgia used to love to run when she was younger. She doesn’t run much anymore. but she is alone now so that may have something to do with it. We sit too much?? I take umbridge at that. I work all day and as soon as I get home, although I would love to go sit, we go outside and play. sometimes she doesn’t want to p[lay much but wants to come back inside and lay down. In fact it just hit me last weekend at our scent work trial that she appeared very tired. Everytime our class was called and we go check in and wait our turn, she would just lay down. I am the one that had to stand the whole time and run back and forth from van to building etc. She was so tired that at the end of the day she didn’t even want to get back out of the van for pictures and for the first time I worried abt her. We go for two walks a day, sometimes play fetch with tennis ball in the tennis court and we practice rally.
Can you ask what more she wants from me? I am much older than she is!
Yes, I have a recliner and when she was younger she sat on my lap or beside me in it. but she won’t do that anymore. She doesn’t sleep on the bed as much as she used to. She gets too warm and look for the coolest place.
No, she is not the only pet. One by one my dogs passed and last Sept we lost her mum so she was left alone. I did get a new baby playmate. Not a puppy, Still looking for that. But would like to now if she would like a puppy to play with, or does she prefer being the only dog.
So far you have done GREAT!! and thank you for you talking to her.
04/10/2021 at 11:30 am #83471
Thank you for the feedback – here’s some more:
She was so excited and happy for the call – being able to help so many people.
She is an angel. She has angel teachers who teach her who keep in touch.
In the ring: she holds the space for all the people. She shows the magnificence of dog, teaching people to appreciate beauty, to have confidence in the beauty of life. The role of the ring for her mum: it teaches her to hold her nerve, to be calm and pursue her purpose without being swayed.
I sensed a green and purple aura – very big.
Her body is beautifully toned. Strong and gentle; poised. When Val mentioned past life I saw a verandah in sunshine, on a great estate and 18th century. Then Val said 18th century. 🙂
She’s beautiful and strong.
Thank you both,

Tried to connect at 8:30am on Saturday morning before the class started.
Georgia: Don’t talk to me right now. I am getting ready for the onslaught of many energies.
Here is what I received during the group communication:
Aura: pinkish/orange and very large. She brings a sense of calmness to the room.
Essence: stable, calm, let’s you know her feelings and is very aware of her emotions. Sensitive to energies. Curious. Knows how to create boundaries. Very confidant.
I connected with Georgia right after our quick connect exercise.
That’s it Barb, I’m feeling your love. Wow! That’s what I needed!
Barb: So glad Georgia.
Georgia: I have been wishing for more love connection. It’s what is going to bring me to excellence in my work. I love my work and want to be excellent. Love is the answer.
Barb: The love and still place is amazing.
Georgia: Yes it is when I do my best work. There is a lot of craziness in the show dog world. When I am centered and have emotional distance it is best.
I love my relaxation time and I love nature and being outdoors. It is very calming for me.
I am glad I can be a “still” model for Kathy. I ground her when nothing else can. I am glad I can be of service in this way. Boundaries are very important.
What’s her job/purpose: Kathy’s guide
I also received her connections to Georgia is from a long ago past life and that she sees other dogs that she competes with as her family.
04/12/2021 at 1:44 pm #83480
That is beautiful. Something happened this evening that I hoped we had overcome but evidently not. And now in light of this new info about the 18oos makes me see things in a different light and wonder if something happened to her back then. In todays world with everyone taking offense at the smallest thing I am afraid to say too much. perhaps privately. But wonder if someone could ask her if someting happened back then to make her afraid.
04/15/2021 at 11:10 am #83500
Thanks for your feedback, Kathy. I’ll have a go! But I’m not as good at this as some of the other people here – but I’m trying to build my confidence.
04/12/2021 at 6:59 pm #83494
Thank you Barb for posting that. Actually that described DeeDee, her mom, to a tee. I don’t know if you picked up some of Dee’s essence since she evidently is still here showing Georgia the way, or if Georgia inherited that from her or what. But I wanted to say when she gets excited and especially at a
dog trial or show and even at practice, before we go in the ring, she give a mighty shake from head to toe, has even lost her hair barrettes she she shakes her head and body so hard, and then she is ready to go. I have thought she is shaking off extra energy and stress and I think this verifies that.
I was surprised at the prior connection, although I have had several of my dogs come back to me in another life. ;And when she was talking about other dogs as her family I immediately got a picture of the two GSDs that we practice with a lot. Their mom and I have become good friends and the girls all crate together at practice and trials.
This has really been great and I thank you again for talking with her and repirting back to me.
04/13/2021 at 8:05 pm #83496Angela LavisGold Member
Hi Kathy. I tried to talk to Georgia and this is what I think I received:
Me: Thank you for helping me.
Georgia: This is something I really wanted to do. I’ve been waiting for it for a long time. We long for this to happen. We know that you need a lot of help. We know this is not easy for you – but we are here. We companion animals are waiting – you just need to be receptive to us – to really listen to us, to shift your point of view. We know you have it in you. We are waiting, we have been waiting for so long. It is wonderful.
Me: How are you today?
Georgia: I am OK. I am a little stiff in the old bones today but nothing too serious. I still love my life. I am not as agile and playful as I once was but I still have many joys in my life.
Me: What do you enjoy doing?
Georgia: I like to sit and observe everyone, to sum everyone up. I am a great thinker, an analyzer. I like to work out what is going on. I don’t like to rush around like a mad thing anymore – now I am more of a contemplator, a wise older dog. I am very sage now, a guru. With my quiet countenance I like to spread quiet and relaxation – calm. I am a calming influence. If there is madness I am just there exuding my calm presence – giving my stability. It’s what I’m here for – you could call me a rock I suppose.
I hope my family appreciates me. I do like to think that I am a very useful member of the family, that I can contribute to their well being. It’s very nice to know that you are needed and appreciated.
I sensed a lovely energy with Georgia- sweet, wanting to be of service, calm, serene, wise and loyal, with a great sense of responsibility to her family and their well being.
All best wishes. Angela

Hi Kathy and Georgia!
I asked her what she liked.
G: I like when I’m in the center and people admire me and I like to make my Mom proud!
04/15/2021 at 11:26 pm #83515
I’m sorry, I am just now seeing this. I did have trouble a couple days ago and could not log onto the forumn.
Thanks for talking with Georgia and if she helped you I am happy about that. Hmm not sure about the rest of it. If Georgia is stiff she certainly is hiding it well. She does not act like an older dog at all, no one who knows her cannot believe it when I tell them her age. She is not wild, but is not or does not act like a “wise older dog.” She gets bored with mom working so much since this covid hit.
My work went down to 2 peope, my manager and me for 6 months, then in Sept it was just me. Now I have been teaching 2 new people but still am gone more than am home so her life has gotten more boring, especially since her doggie mom left us in sept also. She likes to lay outside and watch everyone and dogs and cats go by and she jumps up and gives the alert each and every time !She loves practicing her rally, doing the high jumps or whatever i ask her to do. her tail is always wagging when we are doing rally. I wish I could post some videos of her doing that. And I think even more she loves scent work. She is pretty quick at finding the odor and again tail always going when she is searching, Shen appears quite active When I am around to do something with her. Thats why I believe she needs a puppy to play with and trying ton find one. I think Georgia is a combination of many things. She is just, as all of my dogs have been, a very well behaved dog and always wants to please me. I may be missing something, Life has been way too hectic lately.
Plus we are now shopping for a new van. She has to go with me as she gives final approval. Yesterday we went to look at one, did not live up to our expectations. I didn’t like it but went ahead and had her check it out. She would not even get upon the back seat which is where she rides. I kept encouraging her and finally she went over and sniffed the seat, then she lay in the floor. She never lays on the floor. From there we went to another dealer and when we got there they did not have the van we went to see, but they wanted us to check out another one. One that was way out of my price range and of course we both loved it! But she has final say. It has to have easy access for her and big enough and comfortable for both her and me..and another large dog. She did enjoy meeting the entire staff, everyone had to come and see her, pet her and take pictures.
I do think she is very smart, very knowledgeable, but she can also be excitable in some situations.
But if she helped you I am very glad.
04/15/2021 at 11:32 pm #83516
Is that what I should call you? Yes she likes attention. But not in a vain way, just that she likes to have people around, that makes her happy. And she does make me proud. Every time we go out, every trial and practice we attend. And I would love her and be proud of her no matter what, but it is kind of nice to be the best team, have the highest score and to always have the happiest dog working! lol
Thanks for chatting with her.

Communicated briefly with adorable Georgia who’s a lovely, sweet, good natured dog. As saying goes – bright eyed bushy tail
When I connected with Georgia she was playfully hopping up and down waiting for me to arrive, A small blue bow tied in her hair above her sparkling brown eyes.
Now I’m sitting down on the (wooden?) floor at her height. She’s enthusiastically, energetically licking/kissing my face causing me to laugh and fall about. Am rubbing, tickling her silky blonde, her body warm to touch. Georgia is fun loving older girl.
Between laughing, managed to tell her my name and that am learning to talk to animals. No response, so I ask if there is anything I can help her with ‘No’ her soft sweet voice chipped in before I could finish the sentence.
‘What’s your job or role?’ I ask her and quickly came reply ‘To make people happy. ‘You’re certainly doing that.’ I tell her. Felt she was more in a playful mood rather than wanting to talk
Will connect with Georgia again. I try not to read members comments in an attempt to ensure my meetings with Georgia are true and not my imagination or influenced
04/16/2021 at 6:59 am #83522
I had a quick connection with Georgia today. She is keen and enthusiastic to help. She’s encouraging. A very light feel about her personality. She showed me (I think) dusky mid blue cushion or chair – is that correct? She invited me into her body – she is bigger than I thought. a very springy step. A strong and controlled dog – but an elegant strength like a ballerina rather than like a fighter.
Does she herd? She is confident and proud of her abilities. She knows what she’s doing.
She likes to be outside – sniffing grass. I asked what is so wonderful about outside? She said all the smell and the sunshine – life is magical. She just sat still in the sunshine absorbing life’s magic.
I keep getting her name and your name mixed up: Kathy/Georgia/Kathy/Georgia – I wonder if you have a very involved or close relationship. I ventured to ask about any difficulties – I think I was reluctant rather than her. I think she said: my mum has her own way of viewing things. I also got form this that perhaps she has hers too!
What a gal!
Thanks Kathy and Georgia,

Hi Kathy. Many thanks for your feedback on Georgia. Best wishes. Angela
04/16/2021 at 10:51 pm #83568
Sounds like you got her alright. She is basically quiet unless someone or a dog goes by and she is outside, then she has to bark a greeting to them. In the house she is quiet…unless someone is talking or playing with her. Then the tail starts and if you like kisses then you get those too.
Thanks for giving her some attention. you did great.
04/16/2021 at 11:19 pm #83569
I love that you keep coming back and talking to her some more. Am sure she likes it too. Yes, she has
always loved being outside. Yes, she is a big girl, 91 lbs and has large bone, but is also very graceful. People have remarked how aware she is of every step she takes, and she is very gentle.
Well she can think what she likes, but I know when she is frightened and a certain type of children frighten and recently an incident happened again and she regressed back somewhat into how she used to be, aloof and easily spooked. so it made me wonder if in this previous life some little black children hurt her.
does she herd? Unfortunately she has not had the opportunity like most of my other briards, but recently when Mowgli got out, she did a herding move to help me get him back inside.
Once again you ‘got’ her totally. Good job!
04/18/2021 at 6:28 am #83576
Thank you for the feedback Kathy. I will reconnect with Georgia and ask her more. She’s so happy to connect – she is just delightful! Rosemary xx
04/18/2021 at 1:35 pm #83578
Hey guys, need your help. I HAVE to get a new van. a used new van. Have to get the best deal I can that will give what I want and accommodate 2 big dogs (also looking for a puppy which means a crate until he gets bigger and can be on the seat, or may have to be on the floor depending on what I get. Have narrowed it down to 2 choices and need to know which she prefers. Think I know but need to be sure. There are pros and cons to each. Can someone ask which she prefers? The one where her seat is pretty far back (the town & Country) or the one where her seat is right behind me (the Honda Odyssey).

Thank you for given the opportunity to speak with Georgia. I have talked to here round the 8th of April, but forgot to post. She is a sweet dog, with a direct way of talking. I love it.
By connecting the first thing I was feeling was a heavy pressure on the chest. I asked is it yours? I am a little anguish.
After introducing myself it feels better.
Els: What kind of dog you are?
Georgia: I am a brown dog, you can see the picture and I am sweet and I don’t like very long walks.
You aren’t listening. There is no mistake, you know you can do it, don’t hesitate and be afraif to make mistakes. Everything is ok.
I am big and do like my eating and what do you think of cuddle. I love it. I love to lay on my back and me rupped on my belly. Oh, that is so nice. Can you imagine?
Els: Not exactly, I am not a dog.
Georgia: No, you are a human. Do you know that sometimes, they are stranges and dumb they can hear us. We like to tell what they can better do and because they don’t listening it goes wrong. It should be fine as all people can hear us, maybe they will be sweetener, nicer.
Not my mam, she is allright, she loves me. But there are so many people who can have a better life, when they are learning from us dogs, cats, other animals.
Els: Yes, I know. What can we do?
Georgia : Learning listen. We have so much to say.
Els: You are a clever boy or girl. Georgia: Girl
Els: Is there something you don’t like?
Georgia: Yes, ofcourse, what to do with the apples. I don’t like those apples and I don’t want them. Can you say that. Don’t fall in sleep. I am talking to you.
Els: Sorry, when I am trying to focus, I can become sleepy.
Georgia: Then we must stop.
Els: Do you have a message for us of for your mom.
Georgia: Tell her, she must not worry, everything will come oke. I am oke and we must do easy. Love her.
Els: Thank you for the talk.
Georgia: You uses strange words, but it was a pleasure.

Thank you for posting. I talk to our FAT all the time but never seem to get around to posting it, so I appreciate that you did.
Your conversation made me chuckle – a lot. She is a very sweet girl but (without being pushy) she does have a way of letting you know what she wants, of getting her point across.
I love your conversation. I don’t know what she means by apples. She used to like apples but hasn’t for a while now so I don’t give them to her.
She doesn’t come on the bed all the time but when she does we cuddle and she rolls on her back and I give her belly rubs. and sometimes just when she is laying on the floor.
She has always been the baby of the family and now that she is the only one I have left, it is difficult to realize how wise she really is. I have always called her my baby girl, as in asking her “how’s my Baby Girl today?” till a couple months ago she told me not to call her baby. I explained that it was my pet name for her, that I didn’t mean she was a baby, bbut none the less I stopped calling her that.
I hope you enjoyed talking with her as much as I enjoyed reading about it.

I had a go – here’s what I got but please hold it lightly. I don’t know if I’m on the right track or not.
I started the conversation about sharing something that I want to feel more rather than being worried about life: that life is a gift. She said, Yes. Humans often struggle to see that . They worry too much about the future. But life is a gift. Stay present.
I asked about the van. I think the question was – will there be a window? I got a picture of her sittin g behind you looking through the windscreen over your shoulder. Then I got a picture of her sitting in the back able to see out of the window at the back. The window seemed like the important factor -she wants to protect you. She likes to go in the van and prefers for it to be light so she can see what’s going on.
I asked about her feeling aloof and easily spooked. At first I struggled, then she invited me into her body again. I think this was past life – a group of black children taunted her with sticks. She was scared and ran away. She ended up getting burnt paws – i think she may have stumbled into some coals in an outdoor fire when she was running away. The adults humans just ignored her or laughed. She found somehwere to shelter alone and it took a long time for her paws to get better. She said that no one helped her.
I asked if she knew that the children these days were not the same as the children then – they were probably different children. She said that the problem was that they were strong and didn’t know their own strength, especially in a group or a gang. She said that their strength increased in a gang.
I asked her about the aloof reaction: she said that she has Dog Strength. She can put a shield around herself. She can bark and fighten them off and send them away. I think she felt she was too trusting in the past life and that’s how she got hurt. She doesn’t want them to hurt you (Kathy). I said I would tell you about this and I was sure that Kathy would never let anything like that happen again. I told her to stay close to you if she got scared and to walk away from situations she felt threatened by. She said that she is not often scared. She isn’t used to being scared. She doesn’t like the way it takes over.
We spent some time sharing our hearts. I told her I was so sorry this had happened to her. She shook her beautiful coat. She said: we are both beautiful and lay down with her head on her paws.
i thanked her.

Rosemary, thank you so much! You post really resonated with me and touched me so much that I got down on the floor with her and talked to her and she started kissing me. It’s definitely always been a question of trust and was quite obvious she did not, does not, trust black children. She tries to get away from them. We had an incident when she was a baby, shortly after I moved here, we were out walking and a group of black children saw her and started yelling and running toward her with their arms outstretched. I tried to get them too stop but they wouldn’t and she ran behind me and tried to hide. After that she always backed away from even one child by itself. And while she has always been friendly, sometimes she would meet someone that she would just back away from. But over the years she has basically gotten over that, then recently the same situation happened again. This time she stood her ground beside me, the boy that was racing toward us stopped when I held my hand out in the universal stop sign and then the mother started screaming for him to get away from that vicious dog. We continued our walk but she was then nervous about everything so we had to cut it short.
I think the window thing is because she hears me ask abt windows with every one I look at. I want to make sure the windows open as on my Windstar they don’t. Only have the little wing vents in back and I need some cross ventilation back there for her. In my van she won’t even look out the window. She lays down and keeps her head down. She used to get car sick, it was more of a dizzy feeling and would make her nauseous. I have the same problem and cannot ride in a back seat. But in the Honda Odyssey I noticed her holding her head up and looking out some, also the second row seat is much closer to me I feel better having her that close and I did catch her looking straight in front and out the windshield. I’m pretty sure she likes that one. It looked like she was smiling.
Thanks again for talking with her. You two are becoming good friends!
