Over the years I’ve been blessed with many teachers, and they’ve come in all forms. My grandmother, my dear friends, my incredible husband, books, cancer, healers, doctors. The list goes on. Some teachers have been gentle, some have been tough, and others have been a little off their rockers (in the best possible way). But what I’ve noticed over the years is that my most powerful and gracious teachers walk on all fours.
People often think that animal adoption and rescue are selfless acts — noble, one-way streets. They don’t realize that by saving an animal and bringing it into your home and heart, you could also be saving yourself. The selfless love, constant companionship, and beautiful bond created with these loyal and innocent beings is truly unique and life-changing.
