Animals can get it right!
Recently, my dog Gracie, found a new friend, the neighbor’s cat named Patches. Gracie didn’t ask for Patches to love her. Patches just walked up, laid down in a submissive pose, and continued to wiggle her way between Gracie’s paws. Two animals usually so opposed to one another would call for a bark and a Halloween stance. Neither happened. Gracie quietly laid there sniffing the fur different from her own. Amazed, I have watched this friendship grow. Having a long, fluffy tail that may have looked somewhat like a pillow to Patches, she gently pawed through it as if to make a little pillow for herself. Even the Vet could never do this, as the tail is definitely off limits! How is it that animals can find a way….and humans cannot? Different does not always mean that there cannot be peace.
