Last week a friend found and forwarded me a link to the Ketopet Sanctuary (KPS). I was super excited to hear what they were doing – its my dream – and beyond! They are taking terminally ill, un-adoptable dogs from the local shelters, putting them on specific diets and exercise protocols and seeing great results! The diet they use is a ketogenic diet and the term they use for exercise is metabolic conditioning – Yes! Perfect!
People admired Phoenix’s speed and agility. She was for a time the fastest dog in the dog park! So fast she appeared as if running on water when retrieving a ball or Frisbee thrown out over the lakes, streams, ponds and rivers we visited. I loved seeing her back legs advancing beyond her front as in the photo above. She seemed aware of and delighted with her gifts of speed.
I believe that healing can take place with the simplest of gestures and that it is as much to do with the relationship and draw one might have to each approach or remedy as it is knowing the “right” one to use based strictly on facts
This morning we slept until 6:45 before Charlie woke us with his most vibrant good-morning-crow. Phoenix was startled – as was the rest of the household -kitties and myself –with the volume coming from the office and jumped up, alert, headed for the door. In spite of the shocking reality of a rooster in the house it was good to see Phoenix so full of life, eager to greet the world.
It is with this sense of fullness in my heart that I wish to share our living experiences on this blog. I wish to give others facing HSA with their dog, or any dis-ease process within a loved one or themselves, hope. Hope and support in nurturing the most beautiful Life we have in the moment.
