Welcome to Whippet Wisdom.
My husband and I have adopted six cats and six dogs from animal shelters over the last 28 years, many of whom had their own way of communicating with us. We are both trained in Energy Medicine, Reiki and Animal Healing and communicating with animals is a natural development from practising these disciplines.
In the earlier posts on this blog we introduce our elderly rescue hounds Ruby and Seamus who welcome rescue whippet Eivor into our pack and play a big part in his rehabilitation. After Ruby’s passing we adopt rescue whippet Pearl and both Seamus and Eivor take her under their wings.
When Seamus passes away Eivor becomes the new pack leader and we begin to spend more time in nature than we were able to do in the latter stages of Ruby’s and Seamus’ lives.
Through spending time together in nature we appreciate her magic more than ever before. Here Eivor and Pearl connect with their own true nature and this in turn has become the inspiration for the posts and poems from June 2016 onwards.
This blog is a creative journey through short stories, poetry and photographs about love, nature and new ways of growing and learning together.
The photographs are taken during our walks along the beaches, inside the glens and forests and along the mountain trails of the Scottish Highlands, a place we feel very blessed to call home.
As this blog has evolved several readers mentioned they would love to see our photographs, stories and poems in a book. Work has begun on putting a first collection together with some previously unseen photographs and poems and we are hoping our first book will be published before the end of 2017. At least sixty percent of any profits will be donated to a number of charities whose work we believe in and the remainder will be used for future projects.
Thank you so much for visiting our blog and we hope you enjoy the journey.
Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
