Thanks so much!
I've never been so lucky as I was when we received him in our lives. This time last year I was applying for him for adoption and waiting with bated breath to see if I would be the lucky mom. He has changed our lives so much. He goes everywhere with me, and just finished therapy dog training. He's been in the newspaper 3 times, and the Discovery Channel called us to ask permission to film him in a series they're creating. It's hard for me to realize we've not even had him a year yet. It seems he has always owned my heart.
And here is a strange and fun trivia tidbit. We do a lot of rescue activities and support fund-raisers. Whenever they have an animal communicator, we go to them and the money goes to rescue. I went to 3 separate animal communicators with him last year this way. Each one said that we knew each other in a previous life, and that he was a large white dog then, very huge. And it was Gizzy's white that drew me to him and brought us together again. All said that we were meant to be reunited in this lifetime and that we were seeking each other.
One psychic said in that past life he was "huge and white, like a St. Bernard but white."
Another said he had been "Huge, like a very big white German Shepherd."
And another said he was "A really huge dog, white...like a Great Pyrenese."
I found that so astounding. I didn't even know what a Great Pyrenese was, so I had to go online to look, lol.
My heart was at such unrest for 6 months until I found him. When we were finally together, I felt such peace in my heart.
I keep in touch with his previous mom every day and send pictures. She has said over and over that as hard as it was to have to relinquish him because of her financial crash and his need for medical care, she realizes now that our home was where he was meant to be, that he has become fulfilled.
And that is the way my heart feels. We've bonded so hard. I wish everyone that special relationship with a pet in their lifetime. I love all my babies, but this one is so strong it can't be put into words.
