Why We Love Our Pets Video

Why We Love Our Pets Video. I’ve been in animal welfare for over twelve years now. After surviving a terminal illness I left the fast charging corporate world, never regretting that life changing decision. Twenty-five years in a stressful career almost killed me and the near death experience woke me up. It taught me what is important and lasting and what is not. What is lasting is living simply in the present moment. Living in the present moment, not fretting about the future or regretting mistakes of the past is something rescued dogs taught me as well.

The dying experience was brutal, but It taught me what is important and lasting in this life, and what is not. What is lasting is living simply in the present moment. Living in the present moment, not fretting about the future or regretting mistakes of the past is something rescued death row dogs taught me as well.

After leaving the corporate grind I started a non-profit focused on rescuing and finding permanent loving homes for death row dogs. It seemed the fitting thing. Given a rare second chance at a happy, fulfilling life for myself I wanted to give death row dogs a second chance as well.

Death row dogs taught me more about living a life without worry or regret than 20 years of corporate business ever did. Death row dogs taught me much, and teach me lessons to this day.  The three primary life lessons I experienced being with rescued dogs are these.

Giving and accepting unconditional love. Not the kind of love we humans most times give, where if you love me, I will love you. Or, if you provide things for me I will love you. No, dogs give us love not for any benefit, but just because they love us. That is truly un-conditional love.

 Second dogs teach us to live in the moment. After we rescue them from death row they walk out the door and forget their past problems and show only happiness. They don’t blame the owners that abandoned them or have a woe is me attitude as we humans would. No, they move on, prance about and do their happy dance of freedom. They immediately enjoy life as nothing ever happened.

And, that takes us to the third lesson I learned from death row dogs. They always live in the moment. They are happy right now. They don’t look to be happy in the future but are happy right now in the present. Dogs do not live in their heads as we humans do. Because of that, they experience life so much clearer and fuller than we humans. Think about it. If you did not think about the past every day. Or did not worry and fear the future every day how would you feel? And how much mental time would you have to live right now, right here in the moment?

We say dogs are not as smart as humans because we have bigger brains. Well, I say that maybe our bigger brains that allow us to think every second do us more harm than good. Maybe a smaller brain as dogs have that allow them to live in the moment, not the past or future worrying, but happy right now might not be a bad thing?

If you do not have a dog I know this may sound a bit crazy to you. But, If you are lucky enough to have a dog in your life you probably will know the meaning of what I learned being with rescued dogs the past twelve years. The purest love a human will ever experience is the unconditional love of a dog.

If you do not have a dog I know this may sound a bit crazy to you. But, If you are lucky enough to have a dog in your life you probably will know the meaning of what I learned being with rescued dogs the past twelve years. “The purest love a human will ever experience is the unconditional love of a dog”.

Animal Welfare Book Rescue Renew Rehome

Animal Welfare Book Rescue Renew Rehome 3rd edition just released.

Written by the founder of Green Pets America Charities, celebrating 10 years of caring for animals and families in need.

Animal welfare is about Compassion for animals.

COMPASSION

Compassion: To suffer together.  It’s the feeling that arises when we are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering.

Compassion is not the same as empathy, though the concepts are related. While empathy refers to our ability to take the perspective of and feel the emotions of another person, compassion is when those feelings and thoughts include the desire to help.

Neuroscience has shown that when we feel compassion, our heart rate slows down, we secrete the bonding hormone oxytocin, and regions of the brain linked to empathy, caregiving, and feelings of pleasure light up: resulting  in our desire to approach and care for other’s.

RESCUE RENEW REHOME – COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS – Available now on Amazon Books.

This book has Great stories, Great information and Great reviews.
