I had the honor to administer some love on an absolutely gorgeous Doberman by the name of Jochen yesterday. He was almost as tall as me (though that is not saying a lot). He is 8 years old and has DCM and Arthritis. As I was vectoring, I became almost in a zone with Jochen, almost one.
In class, you taught us to be always present and, in the moment, which I like to think I always am. But something was different yesterday. I don’t know whether it is the fact that I have been giving more massages and becoming more confident in my skill or if I finally had a break through. It was amazing. I felt every muscle, fiber and breath in his body. I was one with Jochen and totally in tune with him.
I was very tired when I got home, which is something new. I was informed Jochen took an hour nap, too, which he never does ?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Jonathan’s note: Every canine massage engages dogs at multiple depths, levels of recognition, and with layers upon layers of expression and interaction.
