Pearl Comes Home

I hope all animals in shelters will be able to experience what I have just experienced. Coming home is the best feeling ever.

I knew you were coming and I knew where I was going.

When our companion saw my picture on the shelter website she connected with me. I saw her make pictures of me living in our pack and in our home.

She made pictures of us running on the beach together and I smiled back at her. She visualised us walking through the glens, climbing the crags and drinking from the lochs. I  jumped into her visualisations and touched her hand, to tell her how happy I was.

From that moment I stopped chasing my tail in the kennel. I stopped fretting and crying. I knew you were coming and I went quiet and waited for you.

The love our companion had been sending me protected me in a warm bubble where the barking and the screaming around me no longer existed.

When I finally saw you I was so happy. You were shaking, as if coming to the shelter brought back a lot of unwanted memories.

It feels as if I have known you all my life. I will look after you Eivor, and keep you safe.

I hope all animals in shelters will be able to experience what I have just experienced. Coming home is the best feeling ever.

I am sending you all so much love,

Pearl
