Dog Reflections ~ Alaskan Malamute, American Eskimo & Basenji

Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals that we like and feel a closeness to, encounter often, attract, dream about and think upon have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding to us of the ‘play’ that is our current experience, and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the gorgeous dogs ~ Alaskan Malamute, American Eskimo Dog or American/German Spitz and Basenji.

It needs to be noted that were a dog to have been mothered/fathered by two or more differing types of dog, one must note the characteristics of both, or all of the known breeds within this coupling to ascertain the many characteristics which their choice has to offer.

(Should you have a request for a reflection, let me know; I’d be happy to oblige.)

Alaskan Malamute   

“Tireless; that’s what they say; bloody tireless. Why can’t they see that’s not me?”

(We have a job to do and it will be done… Yeah! Is that what you think?

Do you really think that I want to be doing, doing, doing constantly over and over again? Really? No, I don’t want to be ‘tireless’; I’m not tireless. I tire just like everybody. I’m not tireless. How many times do I need to say this? I’m not tireless!!! Ahhhhhhhhh; that feels better.

Please understand that I want to please; I want to make all things good for you. However, I’m not superman. No, I’m not. I’m just me; just like everybody else that you see walkin’ about. That’s right. Just like everyone else…. ‘Bout time you saw that; don’t you think? Then maybe you’d not expect quite so much of me. That’s all I ask. Don’t expect quite so much of me. I’m happy to do my share; absolutely…. Happy to do even a little bit more than my share. But, lay off me once in a while, will you? Yeah; just recognise my need for a little rest, a little peace and quiet….

Thanks; I really do appreciate this…..!

“Well, my dear friend, I’m glad to help.”

It’s not often that an energy thanks me. I have been feeling an overwhelming compassion for this personality because, even though it is so willing to assist, its help is often ‘expected’ and not appreciated.

I appreciate you Malamute personality, and I assure you I will see to it (if ever I come in contact with you) that I’ll remember your misunderstood nature.)

American Eskimo Dog or American/German Spitz  (Listen while you read) 

 
Lighten up, lighten up! The load’s never too heavy to bear.

We can do it, you and I.

You know what they say.

A load shared, is a load halved”.

Lighten up! Lighten up!

(You know we can do it when we band together…  Yes, matey; that’s right. A problem shared, is a problem halved.

And this is what the beautiful American Eskimo Dog teaches us this day. Share your woes, share your fears, share your joys, and share your love.

A wondrous energy has the American Eskimo Dog, indeed.

Do you share yourself with all your idiosyncrasies; with all your foibles; with all your daring; with all your ups and all your downs?

Yes, my friends. The American Eskimo Dog asks this of you this day. 

Allow that which is within to come outside to play, to cry, to laugh; to do whatever it needs to do.

This will always change.

A little sadness here, a little laughter there.

Indeed, ’tis a changing world in which we live, dear hearts.

Do we think we are any different? Yes? No?

Indeed not, my dear friends; we are no different…..!)

Basenji  (Listen while you read) 

Basenjidezi400shutterstock_150000140

Hello! How are you? Nice to see you! It’s a nice day. Going for a walk? The garden is lovely. Lovely smell in the air. Good day!

(May I have a word? We Basenji types do like to talk, you know. If it weren’t for the fact that we are above the ‘norm’ we would most certainly talk and talk and talk and talk. We do have a lot to say, you see. Yes, that’s right. WE HAVE A LOT TO SAY; and that which we do say is quite comical, interesting.

Verbose!

What is that you say? Verbose? Well, perhaps that is a fitting term. Hmmmmm, verbose. Yes, you are probably right. We are probably verbose; we Basenji types. Oh, alright, verbose we are. However, at least we have ‘something to say’. Not like many who have nought happening upstairs; if you know what I mean. I don’t mean to sound rude; oh, nothing would offend me more than thinking that others find me rude. Oh, no, that wouldn’t do at all. You see (not to put too finer point to it) we Basenji types do find the hm, hm, ‘common folk’ rather disturbing to our otherwise fine sensibility of character. I am a little embarrassed to say so; however, it is true. We do hold ourselves ‘a little above the rest’.

Now I’ve let the cat out of the bag. Cat! Cat! Who said anything about cats? Oh, those dreadful creatures with their stickiness all over them. Oh, such creatures are they. Washing and preening, washing and preening. Do they do anything else…….?

…..I shall just calm myself a minute. Please excuse me whilst I settle my mind……. Oh dear, I do seem to be giving away far too much of myself this day. FAR TOO MUCH. I am generally so refined and keep my opinions to myself. This I most certainly do. I do not wish for you or anybody to know me too well. A cover-up; you say? No, just another aspect of a finely tuned, well bred character. Oh darn; I hate giving myself away. I really do. NOW I’m a little cross. Yes, I’m a little cross because you have given me up. Yes you have. You have unsettled me and I have given away far too much of myself. I WILL COMPOSE MYSELF and begin again. Yes, that is what I shall do. Forgive me my outburst. Good day!

Charming, comes to mind as does self constraining / critiquing. There is probably a little of the Basenji personality in most of us. He would rather that we see him as he projects rather than think this outward show of refinement is a cover for a much more diverse thinking individual. Yes, the Basenji personality is a quick thinking, ever changing force of friskiness. We could all do with the ability to think on our feet as does the delightful, energetic qualities of this versatile well favoured canine.)

Border Collie Reflection

Border Collie Reflection  (Listen while you read)

© Genie @ Feral Poetess ~ Genie’s Beautiful Border Collie ‘Dancer’

Seems there’s two of us; the one that you see, and the one that you don’t!

Oh yes, my friends, we have a tale of two cities to tell.

No; Charles Dickens isn’t involved, nor England or France.

No, my dear friends, we are not referring to a book, nor a fanciful tale; no, Dear Hearts.

However, we are referring to a revolution. Yes indeed we are.

For you see, Dear Ones, the Border Collie personality is one that excites others to change.

Surprised! Yes or no?

_____

This is our energy:

We excite, we play; we presume that you also want to play. Yes, indeed we do.

We know, and you do too, that all we want to do, when all is said and done; is to allow the playfulness to spark that chord within.

And to which chord are we referring?

We are referring to that tuneful chord that each and every one of us share:

The chord of harmony, and lack of want.

And this is on offer to you, and you, and you.

Thank You so much, Genie… He is as cute as his name..  ❤

 

Lhasa Apso Reflection

Lhasa Apso Reflection  (Listen while you read)

LhasaApsoPixabay400
A gorgeous Lhasa Apso puppy. Do not be fooled by its sweetness. It will surprise you with its ability to understand human personality.

A happy childhood, indeed. The Lhasa Apso represents happiness.

Not all enjoy happiness, this is true. However, for those who inherit a Lhasa Apso; inherit happiness.

And this happiness is the result of good fortune. Good fortune for those of a gentler nature, indeed.

The Lhasa Apso is full of surprises. Indeed, dear friends, those who enjoy the wealth of delights of this breed will not only enjoy happiness, they will embody happiness.

“Hear, hear,” we hear all of you Lhasa Apso lovers calling. Hear, hear; is the cry of those who favour this happiness on four legs.

He/she may not look like ‘happiness, carrying loads of sunshine’; however, do not be fooled by the wisdom expressed in the face, and demeanour, of this outstanding breed. Do not be fooled by the old man expression. No, my friends; you will come to know this breed will ‘have your back’, indeed. This breed will be your constant companion, your dearest friend, your enemy’s dilemma. Yes, indeed; this breed understands man’s foibles and idiosyncrasies.

He/she shall guard you against intruders. He/she will own his/her place as a trophy upon the wall of excellence when it comes to guarding against intruders of a physical, and emotional nature. They will secure your presence with their keen eye; an eye that sees through the make-up of pretence.

Let a Lhasa Apso be your guide to personality; they will not let you down.

Chow Chow Reflection (Listen while you read)

ChowChowWikipedia400AuthorPeretzPartenskyCreativeCommonsAttribution-ShareAlike20GenericLicense1The famous Chow Chow, indeed.

We say ‘famous’ dear hearts, as this breed is as welcoming as a summer breeze. Indeed, this breed will delight you in a multitude of ways.

Why? We shall tell you:

The Chow Chow has depth, dear hearts. Yes, the Chow Chow has depth of vision, depth of love, depth of personality. This it surely does.

Why? We shall tell you, dear friends.

The Chow Chow personality is one which is all encompassing. This it is, dear ones, indeed. And what do we mean by all encompassing? We mean, dear hearts, this personality will delight itself.

“Oh,” you say.” Delight itself?”

Yes, indeed, dear hearts; this personality delights within itself.

Surprised? Yes? Indeed, some be surprised, and others understand. Yes indeed they do. Those who appreciate the personality of this famous breed, understand their nature. Yes indeed they do.

Will you not join with us in this understanding? Will you allow yourself to take the chance to reveal the delights within yourself. Indeed, dear friends, for this is what the Chow Chow represents, indeed.

The Chow Chow represents those things within; the delights within, you understand, dear ones.

Yes, the Chow Chow is a representation of delight, indeed.

Jack Russell Reflection

Hello, my name is Jack Russell, and I have a tale to tell.

(Indeed, my friends, the Jack Russell has many tales to tell.

And this is one of the many redeeming qualities of the famous Jack Russell. He/she will delight you with many adventurous happenings as they go merrily through their day.

That’s right, my friends. The Jack Russell personality will delight you with their wondrous ups, and their entrancing downs. For this is what they do, my friends:

They meander through life, going firstly in this direction, and secondly in that direction.

Many things shall we see the Jack Russell personality do. They will not be content to sit idly; no sir’ee, not the Jack Russell personality.

To ask the Jack Russell personality to sit still is to ask a mountain to walk – it cannot be done, my friends; no sir’ee.

We suggest, dear ones, should you have a Jack Russell personality in your life; give them space and freedom to achieve, and they will be forever at your side; indeed…)

Weimaraner Reflection

Weimaraner Reflection   (Listen while you read)

Hello all; nice to see you. Had a good day? Yes, the flowers are lovely, indeed. Have a great day. Bye for now. redleash

(Indeed, the Weimaraner personality would have us believe in fairies. This it would. It would have us believe in all good things abiding within our world. However, dear friends, do not be deceived. Fairies and flowers are indeed wonderful treasures to behold. However, and this is where life gets tricky my friends – they are figments of our imaginations, indeed.

Some see fairies, indeed they do. All see flowers. However, what are they seeing but the production of future flowers, indeed.

The imagination allows us to see them as beauteous things that adorn our tables, our washrooms. However, my dear friends, we hasten to tell you: Would you cut the sexual organs from animals and display them in neat rows upon your desk? Yes? No? For that is precisely what you are doing, dear hearts. You are displaying something from your imagination which tells you it is a thing of beauty. Are you not?

And this is what the Weimaraner personality does, dear friends. It sees all things and chooses, via its imagination, to see the beauty, indeed. Is this a good thing, dear heart? Or is it not?

Were it to be a beauteous object which brought happiness, positivity and glad tidings; then this would be a good thing indeed. However (and this is where we find a lack in our Weimaraner personality). Were it to be an object of deceit; the Weimaraner personality may indeed be deceived. Better to see all as they are, dear friends, than to be deceived by our imagination.)
