Um, I massage animals all over the world. What I have found is that each species, and each and every single individual within that species, has a unique and special personality. When we honor that, and we are open to the language of that animal, we can form a remarkable bond. I fell in love with Dom, although when I went back nearly two years later he had become bitter from all the beatings. It broke my heart. However, it is the way of things; there are people who understand animals and those who do not see them as they are. The reward we get for love, for respect, and for taking great care with our creatures is beyond imagining. Thanks for your comments.
