I believe that all humans who live with, work with, or dedicate their lives to animals, should do all they can to study those souls, and learn their natures. Yes, it’s very important to know accurate information about health care, nutrition, and the mechanics of training. It’s also important, though, and so enriching, to know the soul of that being. Who did he evolve from, and why is he who he is in modern times? What were his ancestors like? What aspects of his life and behavior can be traced back to the wild creatures in which his DNA took form?
Our animal friends enrich our lives in so many ways. I hope that we can all continue to expand that enrichment, as we open our knowing to the lessons they teach.
