My Angels

One of the most amazing things about having so many dogs is finding each ones true spiritual gifts in my time of need.  My childhood abuse can bring me to my knees as I continue to recover from the damage that was done.  I went through a flashback a few nights back, as I actually relive an experience that happened to me from that time period as if it is happening now.
As this nightmare began, I was with the Back Dogs, who all continually rotated their positions so that I was encompassed by them.  Zappa was on the couch with me and licked my tears and hands, helping to keep me grounded.  Then when I needed to be nurtured, Silver was by my side and let me cry in her fur.  Zappa returned as the tears and pain began to build, when Brut got silently on the other end of the couch.  I was protected by each of them as the pain hit it's peak.  All the while Fiona was directly across from me, knowing she would be my nighttime protector when I went to bed.

When the flashback ended, I walked in shock to the Front Dogs room, where Chance and Blaze immediately laid next to me, each on one side.  They kept squeezing as tightly as possible to me acting as my shields, as I lay in complete exhaustion.  They didn't even get up when Daddy came home and when it was time for bed, Fiona who never lets me down was there to keep me safe as I slept.

What was the most beautiful thing was the security, the love and comfort they gave and how all of them were in tune with me.  Their spirits were in tune with my pain, the reason for that pain and they were there for me.  This isn't the first time it has happened and I doubt it will be the last.  I have found there is more to dogs than being just a great companion.  It is like having a Higher Spirit always there taking care of you.  It has been proven to me over and over.  I am ever so humbled by the love that exist in these beautiful beings and the true blessing of having the honor to call them mine.  A gift I will always hold dearly in my heart until the end of time.

I love this post! I agree dogs are really the best friends you can ever have and I have some great human friends. They don't give advice, but they provide comfort. Please take care!

I'm sad to hear about your problems in the past. I've seen though that they have made you stronger. And when the memories are too much, you have your loving dogs, being there for you and supporting you in the best way they know. Thank you for another beautiful lesson.

A truly beautiful post. We, too, are comforted to know that your pack provides you with so much unconditional love and support. Just one of the many reasons why we love dogs:-)

You have so captured the connection! They hold back nothing and are each in their own way totally devoted to keeping you safe and protected and loved. I makes us feel better knowing that you have them to help you through the pain and horror...trust them always and be totally emotionally honest when you are alone in their embrace.

Beautifully stated. I'm sorry you suffer with ghosts of the past. That companionship is the essence of The Pack. They just know. Strength in numbers is a powerful, compelling force. Many hugs your way.
