When I began my search for the perfect dog, the criteria was: adult standard poodle. To be honest my preference was a silver female who was the reincarnation of my beloved dog, Joshua. Although I was counting on Law of Attraction to provide my perfect dog, part of me was afraid to be too specific. Oh ye of little faith…
After looking at a lot of dogs and putting out feelers far and wide, I was lead to a breeder in New Hampshire, Crabapple Downs. There were five yearlings available that seemed to fit my needs. Upon communicating with each of the five, there was one blue male who sounded, personality wise, like a good choice, even though he was the wrong color and sex. (The others had their own unique personalities and I was really looking forward to seeing whether they presented in person the same as they did telepathically.)
We selected a date and planned our trip to meet the candidates. Unbeknownst to us, that same weekend a huge ice storm had hit the area knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of people. The roads were less than ideal and our trip was at times harrowing, but we finally reached our destination hours later than expected. By then it was too late to meet the dogs so we settled in for the night in one of the rental apartments on the farm. It was a very cozy place complete with dog beds.
The next morning we went down to the kennel to meet the dogs. The five boisterous candidates were brought in and we spent some time just being with them to see if there was a connection. After a short time the one that stood out was in fact the blue male from my communication. He was very nice and we would have settled for him, but he wasn’t perfect.
Apparently sensing this, Arlene, the breeder, brought several litters of various ages in to meet us. There were so many different colors and personalities that we weren’t sure we’d be able to choose just one. Finally one of the puppies gave me the sign I had been waiting for. (The night before I had requested that my perfect dog would behave in a certain way so I’d know “the one.”) It was a silver female and her energy felt a lot like Joshua’s! She clearly chose us as well. At five months she wasn’t quite the adult I had requested, but that was a compromise we decided to make all other things considered.
After a bath and grooming we loaded up and were on our way home with our new poodle girl. She settled right in like a seasoned traveler. Arlene had warned that she might go through some separation anxiety but she seemed delighted to suddenly be the only dog and we never had those issues.
The first night she slept beside me with her head on my shoulder. That girl can really stretch out! It took about a week to settle on the perfect name for our perfect dog: Saphyre Michaela. She’s a gem and it suits her. Oh, and to make it even more perfect, she’s the niece of the dog I met who healed me whom I previously blogged about.
Using Law of Attraction it was just six weeks from the time I broadcast my request to the universe until I found my perfect dog.
