An anecdotal story of empathy
There was one young service member with PTSD that brought us to another level of Ricochet’s healing abilities. She also brought me to a higher level of skill in interpreting Ricochet’s behavior when she alerts to triggers, anxiety, fears and so much more.
They have the deepest connection of anyone that has crossed our path. It’s like they are soul sisters. The service member describes it as Ricochet sharing her pain which helps her to let go in a way.
I know Ricochet is an empath and feels what others feel, but she doesn’t keep it. She takes it on, but then let’s it go, freeing the person more each time.
It's amazing to witness to this soul-to-soul healing! Please leave a comment below about your dog's empathy.
Dogs can sense when you’re not feeling well emotionally or physically. Some dogs know when you’re in need of comfort. Others may notice a change in your behavior. Are there certain types of people your dog gravitates towards? Pay close attention to the slightest cues, body language and actions of your dog. When we open our hearts and accept what our dogs have to share, we gain a greater sense of their empathy!
