Have you ever wondered how your dog really sees you? Not as caretaker or companion, or teacher or whatever but the under the skin view. Most animals, including dogs see more than just the clothes we wear or the car we drive or whatever image we want the world to see. They see our subtle energetic bodies […]

Writing by Thoreau The wilderness my father and grandfather knew in the early 1900’s is no longer the wilderness we know today. Montana still retains much of its wild nature in National Parks, Wilderness Areas and National Forest but it has changed. It makes me sad to think of how much transformation has occurred in […]

Animals like humans have a dharma or a purpose in life. It warms my heart to tell the story of Joey and his dharma with our family as he walked into our life about 15 years ago. I remember it well. It was a beautiful fall day for a walk. The maple trees were just […]

July 30, 2012 Christine McDonald Animal BehaviorAnimal Connections

Joe Joe and Friends

It is more of a dance of energies that balance each […]
