You and Your Dog Inside

They say a dog is man’s best friend. That’s probably because in many ways there is a part of us that is not dissimilar to a dog. There is you and your dog inside of you. There is a higher version of yourself which is more evolved than your dog, and there is that base part of you and your dog inside.

For the moment, let’s refer to the dog part of you as Lassie. Lassie, not unlike other animals, is more concerned with being content and avoiding pain. Desiring the basic necessities of life such as food and shelter, mating and forming relationships with others.

Lassie has a natural tendency to want to care for others, and have fun, but can also experience overwhelming feelings, especially if the dog inside of you has suffered some abuse in the past. Lassie can be cuddly one minute, and in a second, when triggered, can be defensive and fierce, or turn and run away from anything which perceptually might cause harm.

Then there is that more intellectually evolved thinking part of you which is very imaginatively creative with the ability to be compassionate, reason, analyze, deduce, dream, project, and interact with others using language and higher levels of communication. Let’s call this part of you, Charlie.

Being inside the same body, Lassie and Charlie can face many challenges in trying to navigate life both as you and the dog inside of you.

Lassie is highly adaptive and is prone to change when faced with new circumstances in an effort to “get along” while Charlie will over-analyze just about anything, and lugs around an incredible (almost never-ending) filing system which hinders our ability to move on.

Lassie can easily sleep soundly when it is time to rest, while Charlie can stay up all night wondering, “What could happen if…” imagining and running all types of scenarios through the mind, creating new ideas, and fictitious threats and dangerous situations which have no relevancy in real life.

Charlie’s ability to be imaginative and creative is a gift which leads to problem-solving, miraculous inventions and advances in the sciences, but in concert with Lassie can cause us to become overwhelmed by emotional fear, which is a slippery slope when we exercise a good portion of Charlie’s skills in fear, leading to fear, anxiety, and depression.

This can create a virtual never-ending cycle of anxiety which can drain the resources of our entire biological system, weakening our immune system, making us more susceptible to disease, premature aging, and leading us to an early grave.

Thankfully, there is an even higher version of our selves which lives off-campus. Let’s call this part of us, Skyler.

Connecting with Skyler can help to keep Charlie from being over-powered by an overactive Lassie. Since Skyler is outside of your body, by adopting this point of view you can see a perspective of any given situation outside of yourself. From this vantage point you can be more objective and less judgmental.

Skyler can be the mediator between Charlie and Lassie enabling you to achieve your highest and best.

Mindfulness comes from Skyler and meditating allows us to be more connected with that higher part of our selves. This can allow you to live a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place for you and your dog inside of you.

Ultimate Pet Rescue

Saving Dogs and Cats for Pet Therapy

There is no doubt shut-ins, single people living alone, persons in advance age and those suffering from declining health conditions all benefit from the unconditional love from a dog or cat.

Although having a pet is like having another family member (which is a good thing). I know some people, when finances are running thin, the pets come first; the special food, veterinary services or whatever the pet needs for a good quality of life takes precedence. Not unlike the care and consideration one would have for ones own offspring. Feed the kids (and/or animals) the good stuff and I will sacrifice and eat from the dollar menu, when times are tough.

Not being able to financially take on and meet the needs of having a pet as a companion can prevent one from embracing the idea of adding a dog or a cat to their home.

While millions of perspective homes are available and human hearts yearn for having a pet as a companion, millions of dogs and cats are euthanized because we don’t have the resources available to house them and care for them while waiting for someone to adopt them.

Recognizing the obvious connection between an abundance of available pets and the millions of people who could benefit immensely from adopting them, leads me to believe that the time has come for

Ultimate Pet Rescue

Why not rescue the animals on death row and the humans who would enjoy a higher quality of life with them?

I would love to see Ultimate Pet Rescue (UPR) buses traveling around cities all over the world.

The UPR buses would be modified and redesigned; removing seats and replacing them with pet transport cages. Busses would travel weekly, beginning their journey by loading up dogs and cats from death row onto the busses.

The busses would travel to locations where potential recipients are located. Good matches would be found for both pet and new pet parent.

The non-profit UPR organization would provide food and veterinary care to assure the quality of life for the pet, without burdening the pet parent’s resources.

Make the World a Better Place Challenge

This basic concept is ripe for harvesting today.

You can help to make the world a better place by initiating the Ultimate Pet Rescue program today.

I would do it myself, but my plate is too full at the moment and this action must be taken at this time as the lives of so many people and pets are at stake.

I am sure that the right person who has been called to accept this mission is reading these words, right now.

You are checking to see if ultimatepetrescue dot com dot net and dot org are available (and they are at the time of the publication of this post) and you are ready to take action.

And I will support your efforts to make the world a better place by answering the call.

God bless you for all that you do.

UPDATE

Once you have taken action and are ready to announce the Ultimate Pet Rescue to the world, let me know.

I will help you make your announcement and post an update to this post about your efforts.
