One of my canines, the newest member of the household, sometimes alerts at things the rest of us cannot see or here. We fostered another dog who did the same. Sometimes I can identify the source, maybe the wind blowing, but not others. I may never no the source.
But I would rather have the occasional false alarm than risk missing a true threat. I am grateful for his vigilance.
And, sometimes, just sometimes, I wonder if he can see or hear beyond this world, beyond what some call “the Veil” into some other world. To be certain, he is a very special creature.
Can a non-human, a dog or other non-human animal, be a starseed or wanderer? Could such a special soul come to help us and be our companion?
