Notes from Happy Students

Hi Frances,
I want to thank you for the class today. My road to developing my intuitive abilities has been a bumpy one thus far, and after this last week I was feeling pretty vulnerable and defeated, not sure if I wanted to keep going with it. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to come today,as I was very down this morning,  but I’m so glad I did, as it put the wind back in my sail. The exercises we did were fun and easy to do, you were so kind and calming. The messages I received from Isabelle and her mom were very healing. It was wonderful to be in a group with such lovely people. Thank you so much again, you are amazing! ~ J

Should I Smash a Window?

The "Right to Rescue" act provides legal immunity for a person who damages a car in a good faith effort to save an animal from dangerous conditions while trapped in a hot car.  

The Right to Rescue Act" will save lives. We all know how hot our cars get sitting in the heat, but so many people don’t recognize that leaving your dog in the car for even a few minutes in these conditions can be fatal.  More than anything, we hope that AB 797 will raise awareness of this danger so pet owners remember to leave their dogs at home.” - Assemblyman Marc Steinorth

To receive legal immunity, a person must comply with all of the following requirements:
  1. Determine the car is locked or there is no other reasonable method to remove the animal from the vehicle;
  2. Have a reasonable and good faith belief that the animal is in imminent danger if not immediately removed;
  3. Contact law enforcement prior to entering the vehicle;
  4. Use no more force than necessary to enter the vehicle; and,
  5. If the person does enter the vehicle, the person must remain nearby with the animal in a safe location until law enforcement arrives. The person may not leave the scene.
What if you see a dog in a hot car?  Not sure how to determine signs of heat-related distress?  

  • Anxiety
  • Wide eyes
  • Fervent barking as if in distress
  • Intense scratching or digging at windows or doors trying to escape
  • Excessive panting with exaggerated long tongue
  • Extreme drooling, salivating
  • Change in color of the gums (blueish purple, bright red or pale from lack of oxygen)
  • Increased heart rate
  • Labored or trouble breathing
  • Disorientation, stumbling or poor coordination
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Collapse or loss of consciousness
  • Seizure
  • Respiratory arrest
  • Coma

Dogs and their food – why are their tummies upset?

More and more of my dog clients have been having food issues – allergies and stomach concerns – even being “prescribed” or “recommended” foods only found at the vet’s office.  Dog food is big business and I believe fillers are being used to make more money, with less nutritional value for the dogs.  (I have not found the same issues with my cat clients – but if you are having a concern with allergies or stomach issues this message will apply.) Please understand I do believe in Western, Eastern and Holistic healing methods –when appropriate.  However, when I look at the first five ingredients in many of these “recommended” by the vet, “can only get at the vet’s office” products, I have a problem.  

Check out the first five ingredients on the labels as they are listed by volume content.  Do you know what they are?  Are they real and nutritious food (i.e. meat, vegetable or vitamin) or fillers with words that include wheat, whey, corn, grain, meal, flour?  If you don’t know what an ingredient is, look it up – I did this while with a client.  We discovered the definition of the item was “no nutritional value, added to pet food as filler.” 

I highly recommend checking out the Blue Buffalo brand.  I am not endorsed by them or paid by them.  I have just found my clients are very happy when they are fed products by this company.  I know there are other great brands out there – read the labels – that is my message to you.
