Your Response to the Past

I had to pick this image. It is not so personal, but it clearly represents a motive. Imagine your loyal, best, and favorite feral companion, or friend passed, in the last year. In some sense, your life moves forward. It is then you and, your associates, close to that companion, come across that special reminder of what once was, one day. You feel that energy, again.  It is that sense of personality. The friendly or familiar behavior returns just for a moment. Things, at that point, complicate.
 

Everyone reacts to this connection differently. Cat, dog, bird, or goldfish, people remember in their own way what once was. There is a split in emotional ties. Some people believe they want that feeling back in their favorite, new, pet. Others feel more distant with no want of experiencing the connection, and loss, again. You have other people that live in the moment, but maybe just want to embrace the moment in order to understand just what they are feeling. It is like a test. You almost wonder if, from beyond, your special pet gave you a moment to consider them, a new friend, to move forward with, or possibly to come to terms with a new direction with pets.
 

It is a strange, but an important thing to consider when the moment happens. You find a story like Nani the Pitbull’s, at http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20150614_Emaciated_pit_bull_abandoned_in_Tacony_on_the_mend.html.  A former companion abandoned, wasted, and emaciated in a local park, but can recover, in a magnificent way, important. Baby Girl’s story, at http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Mount-Pocono-Dog-Hogtied-Left-to-Die-Pennsylvania-305621751.html, seems so extreme, but because the people got their in time, the dog has a chance to find decent people to take care of it.
 
You consider the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Pet Stores who have animals that go unsold, and other places that have animals, looking for homes, a place to create change.
 
You can adopt the animal, or purchase your pet, but maybe you do not have the money. What if you just visit? You just want to say hello.  If you get to pet, an animal, it might comfort what was, but also prepare the dog, cat, or other, for their true owners. You could walk, care for, and clean up after a friend in order to see them in the best circumstances.
 
This is because you remember your buddy from the past. It might be enough to let your consider the importance of a good pet. Use the influence as you wish, but do not ignore your reaction. Meet your response, with a good move toward what will make you feel better. Move to what will respect your older best friend. Respond, and do not ignore that need to react to what no longer exist. If you positively respond, when it happens, it will meet your expectations.

Dogtown Introduces You To The Necessary

I will try not to advertise. It’s easy to just pick a companion. You share a lifetime, theirs, and yours, and only really want a few things. You want a reliable buddy, want a place that knows dogs, a place to get your new, best friend, reliable information on the buddy, the food, and toys they enjoy, and in this case cats too. Dogtown is bigger. If you didn’t know before, it is the one place to take your dog, safely to be taken care of, over vacation, trips, etc. 

You get a place that offers a premium grade of grooming. This is also the home of its own store, at 252 Bethlehem Pike. They have merchandise, cleaning products, food, toys, and information, on all adoptions, along with a lovely fragrance. Did I mention this is a place to get rescue dogs? You can also get cats, as of recently, but through another organization.

I forgot if you just want to walk dogs, or play with cats, on the weekend, or weekday, that need a little attention, it’s a perfect spot. It’s a great place to check out, and is a safe place to understand your current, or new companion, just a little better.

I enjoy their service, every so often, in the form of hanging with rescue, or daycare dogs. They enjoy walks. It means just getting slobber on your face. There are guys, and gals, of all shapes and sizes. There are opportunities to help.  You have many things you can do to help at Dogtown, if you ask. It all helps to make a dog’s, cat’s, or person’s lifetime that much better. Ask Jennifer Joseph, or any of the staff. Visit Dogtown. Stay for puppy slobber, the right dog essentials, or help where you can. It’s always a good choice for good, and new, companions, yet to come.
