Healing Pets

A  L  O  H  A !

Next time you are feeling 

anxious about life in this so-called 

"dog eat dog" world of ours 

stop and think about 

actual dogs you have known.

They're not eating each other, usually.

Think of the thrill of recognition 

that "kid-you" felt when

you looked into the eyes of your pet.

You felt loved,

your dog followed you every where.

And though there are those 

who believe in fear-leadership

dogs lay down their lives,

or return from thousands 

of miles away,

for love.

Yes, an elemental love 

looks back at you

through the eyes of nature.

Pets often take the 

role of protector,

a caring friend 

by the sick bed.

They try to assist

and research shows 

positive health affects

just from seeing

or touching them.

When I feel pain

Pixie comes near in concern.

When she brushes my ankles

or settles nearby

my pain is lessened

my spirit leaps.

So thank you to 

our companions

who heal, love, 

and teach us!

And Thank YOU

For Your Aloha,

                  Warmly, Cloudia
