(Juliette the Bichon Frise)
Before I had an official psychic business, I was doing pet readings for friends and clients by word-of-mouth referral. This little bichon, Juliette, is my friend’s dog and she’s had so many funny things to say over the years!
Juliette is probably the most demanding and diva-esque dog I’ve ever met, although I spoke to a lovely little Yorkie named Sophie who had a long, thought-out list of special requests for her person too.
With Sophie, she came up with the requests in part because she knows her human enjoys fulfilling her needs so much – so she invents a few extra needs. She’s a 5lb dog in a big world, after all. Who wouldn’t want a pillow by the bed to land on?
Juliette has a very natural life out and about in the British Columbia wilds. In fact, I’m pretty sure her ancestors have been pampered city dogs for generations. Juliette gives me the impression of a humourous, slightly-put-out, female gentile in the wild, wild west, who has adapted to and adores the rugged environment that is now her home, but who hasn’t forgotten the comforts of a more civilized existence. This is reflected in her requests before her Mom travels.
They do always know where you’re going, what you’re doing, so don’t even think you can pull one over on your pet!
Juliette knows when her Mom is headed to the city, and comes up with city-specific requests. She loves doggie boutiques because the staff always fuss over her and tell her how pretty she is, and she’s one of those dogs who enjoys new collar, a variety of coats, a special, gourmet dog treat to eat.
Juliette also knows when her Mom is eating one thing, but thinking she really *should* be eating something else. Juliette has consistently reported her Mom’s guilty snacking. Mom eats popcorn. Mom eats chips. Mom ate chocolate – and I didn’t get any!
Juliette doesn’t really care whether Mom eats treats or not, she just reports on the state of emotional eating. As her Mom was going through one heck of a stressful time, Juliette was really reporting on the things her Mom did to make herself feel better.
It’s really funny what they notice. I get a kick out of it, anyway.
