My sister sent me this video. My little nephew has finally cracked the secret call that gets Mazzy to "talk" on command. I've tried for years to get her to "talk" when I want her to, but her will power was greater than mine. Kai has been trying different repetitive sounds for the last year, and, at last, has cracked Mazzy's constitution.
I miss them.
As much as I love getting pictures or videos, it's very bittersweet.
It makes me realize how far away they are,
how many sweet moments I'm missing.
I actually hired an animal communicator before we left.
I know, I know, roll your eyes.
I dare you.
But now put yourself in my shoes for a second.
How would you explain to your dogs that they're not being abandoned,
that you're just leaving for a year but still love them tremendously?
So I hired an animal communicator, that was recommended by a close friend.
Without getting too technical, basically she tells you what she's saying to the dogs,
and what they are saying back in a stream-of-consciousness sort of way.
Within the first sentence,
"Mazzy says 'they can't be leaving'",
I started sobbing.
It was really, really hard to hear.
But I'm also really glad I did it.
It gave my dogs the proper understanding of the situation.
There were details and things she said that made me believe,
that she was able to communicate with the dogs.
And when I brought them to my sister's,
they settled and acclimated so quickly and easily,
it seemed really obvious that they understood what was happening.
I still feel sort of silly sharing it though.
It feels really personal, and yet I also expect skeptics.
I was skeptical myself, until my friend shared how it helped
with her pets, and I tried it myself.
All that aside, I share that story to help you understand
