We have welcomed a new fur-baby to our family! Her name is Izzy, and she is a Rescue dog. 🙂 We think she is part Pug and part Bulldog, but if you have any other suggestions, we’d love to hear them too.
Izzy came to CAReS (Claresholm Animal Rescue Society) after a kind person rescued her on the busy highway. We really don’t know any more than that about her. After we said good-bye to our Bernese Mountain dog, Cali, earlier this year at the age of 10 1/2, we didn’t think we were ready for another dog for awhile. However, Izzy has made her way into our hearts. ♥ Our other Bernese, Missy, now has a new friend, after being very lonely without her half-sister, Cali. We’ve never had a Rescue dog before, this is a new experience. Izzy is an older dog, and we are realizing there are a few things she is teaching us. For instance, she loves to have soft blankets to lie on, and she also loves to be in the same room as a human. She is fine with cats, they are no big deal to her. She thinks Missy’s long fur is sooooo soft and wonderful, and she enjoys snuffling in Missy’s soft ears. She is strangely very afraid of things that squeak—doors, toys, etc.. It’s also clear that Izzy is not familiar with Reiki, it surprised her, but she quite enjoys the feeling of it. I plan to give her a longer Reiki treatment very soon, but have just been giving her short ones for now. I also hope to learn and help her with her deep fear of things that squeak.
We now have a family of 7 again, my two daughters and I, our two dogs Missy and Izzy, and our two cats Figaro and Meeko. Meeko is also a Rescue cat. 🙂
