I have always believed that we choose to live our lives with “pets” – in our case, dogs especially, because of the unconditional, non-judgemental love they give us. Our big old German Shepherd Dog, Thor, is a spirit healer. He has always known when a friend or visitor to our home is “hurting” or in need of some calm and kindness. We used to say he could sense the “damaged souls”…
I wish our friend Joe could meet Thor – I’m certain they’d have bonded. So here for Joe, (who needs to heal), is a visual message from Thor:
Deep, dark, soulful eyes;
Your compassionate nature
heals those who touch you…
Faithful, loving dog –
proud bearer of the Norse God’s
name – you are our Thor.
~~~ We named him Thor because he had such huge paws as a puppy! You could hear him thundering across the laminate wood flooring. Even then he was heavy and at 10 years of age, he weighs almost 40kgs! (about 88lbs.)
Thanks to: My DD, Amber, for the fabulous photo of Thor – xoxo; Kim Klassen for the textures.
