Tells Us About Your Pets and/oe Familiars

I love to hear stories from people about how their pet and/or familiar came into their life and what they get and give from the bond. I have been working with dogs in varying jobs, trainer, groomer, veterinary assist and midwife, for over 44 years. I have found no two animals even from the same dame and sire have the same personality. Please share the story of you and your pet with us.

If you would like to see their picture added into the post please mail a picture as an attachment to ladybeltane@aol.com. Please include your pets/familiars name, age, when and where you got them from and how old they were when they became a part of your family. Did they pick or did you pick them?

A Short Story of My Two Girls

They are getting more tolerant of each other :-D

 

I would like to introduce you to my familiars, I usually refer to them as, “My girls.” On the left is Princess Starbabie, a.k.a. Star, who id a 4 1/2-year-old Chihuahua. Star is a rescue dog I got when she was almost 2 years old. Her personality for a Chihuahua is not typical as she is very laid-back and hardly ever barks. Her name came from the song lyrics, “Star baby got to love you,” sorry I do not remember who the song is by. As for the Princess well every Queen needs a least one…right? She has come a long way in 2 years from a shaking dog who only I could hold or get near to one when she is out walking will run up to people, sit in front of them and just look into their face with the expression of “I’m so cute you just have to pet me.” Most of the time it works for her…lol I got Star from a place I worked she had been bought by a couple but was just dropped for grooming and they never picked her up. She was in sad shape with all the fur missing along both sides of her body from nipping to stop the itching from what turned out to be no more than an allergy to poultry. I knew she would be hard to adopt out again because of this but since I already had a dog with the same allergy I took her home and into our family no questions asked. I am happy to say she is now thriving, learning to play with my husband and I and a very happy girl. I also found an immediate bond with her once she recovered her health and she became one of my familiars. She is the one that never leaves my side when I am home and protects me from unseen entities both good and bad. I am a channeler for spirits from across the veil. Before Star came into my life I had to keep up many wards and shields to stop the spirits from talking to me almost twenty-four hours a day. Star seems to be the only shield I now need to keep them from being a constant stream in my head and dreams. She also has a very calming effect on my energy when it goes

On the right is Drama Queen Cleopatra JAWS, a.k.a. Cleo, a 7 1/2 year old Minater Pinscher (totally unrelated to a Doberman Pinscher). I got Cleo as a birthday present when she was 5 1/2 weeks old. We went to the breeders home and she kept coming up to me while her brothers and sister stay far away as the could. When she also came right to my husband I knew she was meant to be in our small family. Cleo got the Drama Queen part of her name when she went to the vet the first time and while his fingers were still an inch from her face to open her mouth to check her teeth, she loved chewing rocks and large stone, and she started crying…lol The JAWS part of her name comes from my step-father’s nickname as they share the same birth date.  She is very outgoing and loves to be around other people and their dogs. She has my husband trained well when it come to playing fetch – he throws the toy for her but half the time he has to go get it, bring it back and throw it again before she will deem the toy worthy of her attention. I at times will refer to myself as her Lady-in-waiting, which also goes for Star now too. She definitely has her own personality and quirks as any queen does. We found out before she was a year old that she had a poultry and some environmental allergies. She is also my familiar and protects me from things in the physical world that could harm me when we are out walking or someone comes to the door. When I do not feel good or am very upset she too will not leave my side.

Both of my girls participate in rituals in or out of sacred circles and lend their energy if needed to my spellwork. As such Epona (a Celtic Goddess that started out as protector of horse and morph into the protector of all domestic animals) plays a big part in our lives and I trust her to keep my girls safe when they are home alone. I have a small stone with her name on it tucked away in all the dog’s beds in our home (every room has one except the kitchen) with Epona’s name written on it and charmed for the girl’s protection and to clear them of negative energy. I have found it is as important to cleanse their chakras as it is my own.
