    Hi there Patti,

    My first feeling with Ollie was she has issues with her throat….Tightness. When she gets excited she feels it in her stomach. I feel Ollie is a wise old soul. She likes people and is pretty trusting. Feel Ollie is a very happy dog, very content. Feel….. though she is happy, there is something from her past that is in her memory that when she thinks of it, saddens her. It doesn’t affect her but when she thinks of it she is very focused and I get a feeling you aren’t Ollie’s first owner. After dinner I see her getting a pat on the chest with a bit of a rub while she is sitting. I get a feeling of a red bowl that is ceramic. I see white fibro walls and some lino with blue’s and greys and black outlining. Get a feeling it’s the room she sleeps in with a cosy little velvet bed from the pet shop. She is very loved by you and she is a dog with so much love to give. Ollie is a healer and tunes into people with such sensitivty. Ollie is a beautiful soul and understands much.

      Hi Annie,

      Thanks for this! First, something here is odd. You’re commenting on a post that doesn’t even exist! (I never created this and even searched and can’t find it. VERY WEIRD!) Oh … I see. You clicked on his photo and then commented there. Oh well, no matter!

      Here’s the real post where we did a specific exercise: You Can Talk With Animals :: 8 Simple Steps and a Practice Session if you want to take a look.

      Then, the answers are on this page, where you can find out more about him: AC Practice Session With Ollie :: And the Answer Is …

      But in any case, here’s some feedback for you! :-)

      “My first feeling with Ollie was she has issues with her throat….Tightness. When she gets excited she feels it in her stomach.”
      I think you picked up on something here. He would get very excited in the car, especially in the beginning, and as we taught him not to bark when riding, he would hold it back — sort of in his throat, as he would make little squeeky noises there in an attempt to be quiet. He might have also felt it in his stomach since he was very sensitive (more on that, below).

      “I feel Ollie is a wise old soul. She likes people and is pretty trusting. Feel Ollie is a very happy dog, very content.”
      TRUE!

      “Feel….. though she is happy, there is something from her past that is in her memory that when she thinks of it, saddens her. It doesn’t affect her but when she thinks of it she is very focused and I get a feeling you aren’t Ollie’s first owner”
      YES! We got him from the city shelter when he was 3 or 4, and he’d been a stray. We don’t know what his past was but he was malnourished and had bare areas on his elbows, probably from being confined. He did have a sadness in his eyes and I do think he was pretty sad before we got him. VERY GOOD!

      “After dinner I see her getting a pat on the chest with a bit of a rub while she is sitting.”
      Yes, I would hug him from behind, around his chest. Not just after dinner, and often!

      “I get a feeling of a red bowl that is ceramic. I see white fibro walls and some lino with blue’s and greys and black outlining. Get a feeling it’s the room she sleeps in with a cosy little velvet bed from the pet shop.”
      I can’t think of a red ceramic bowl … And our kitchen does have linoleum with black outlining, but he slept in the bedroom on a cozy fuzzy bed that we bought (I made the cover). So, you tuned in pretty well, there.

      “She is very loved by you and she is a dog with so much love to give. Ollie is a healer and tunes into people with such sensitivty. Ollie is a beautiful soul and understands much. ”
      Yes, very loved by us and much love to give. You are so right, he definitely tuned in, more than any other dog I’ve known, and was ultrasensitive. (I say “was” because Ollie passed away last summer. I miss him terribly! But you can still pick up on his energy just as if he was still “here”, and you’ve done so beautifully. BRAVO!!!)

      OH, and I just thought of something. When he passed away, I was convinced it was related to some gas in his stomach which caused him great distress. The vets didn’t think so even though it DID show up on the x-ray. I think your first hit about his stomach is right on and likely relates to this!

      And finally, for your additional comment: “Looking at Ollie again, I see a picture of beach with dark grey rock to the left of him. Ollie also feels the cold and a blanket on cold days and nights Ollie would love, especially on those clear dark nights with the stars brightly shining in Winter. Doesn’t have to be too thick, just enough to keep his body heat at a comfortable temperature.”
      Well, we don’t live near a beach but there is a LOT of sand, and definitely lots of rocks. He slept indoors but we live in the high desert mountains and do have clear, dark nights where we can see gazillions of stars, so I do think you picked up on that. It’s not so common to get to see that every night.

      Thanks so much for touching in with him, I really think you felt and saw him. Doing this is a nice reminder for me of what a precious being he was, and I appreciate this chance to think about and love him again.

      Take care, and thanks so much for stopping by!

    Hi Patti,

    Looking at Ollie again, I see a picture of beach with dark grey rock to the left of him. Ollie also feels the cold and a blanket on cold days and nights Ollie would love, especially on those clear dark nights with the stars brightly shining in Winter. Doesn’t have to be too thick, just enough to keep his body heat at a comfortable temperature.
