Dog by dog healing ministry

Anne Lamott on Oprah talked about how her doggies do their healing dog ministries every morning…. LOVE that…  dog by dog…

Cici’s healing ministry

Cici’s healing tongue ministry

whenever i least expect it, here comes the tongue licking my toes, my face, my hands

lighting me up inside like the fourth of July

giving me a bath of slobbery sunshine

Cici’s healing silly ministry

there she goes rolling over onto her back showing off her belly

making me chuckle

making people smile and sometimes laugh

Cici’s zooming around the park ministry

she is gone with the wind and looks soooo very happy

making me feel proud, warm and good inside

Cici’s booopping me ministry

mama, take me out, or mama give me some treats or food or attention

Cici’s looking at me with soulful eyes ministry

she puts her chin upon my knees and stares straight into my heart

or lies on the floor and looks at me with those eyes

her eyes implore me

tell me that her request is urgent

and that she will love me forever

Cici’s silly goofy healing ministry

every day she makes me laugh

Cici’s furry warm wiggly body healing ministry

some lucky nights or naps

when she plops herself right down on top of me

too close to breath

Cici’s healing ministry

makes me HAPPY

and

thankful that i have this loving dog

my sweet canine friend

best friend and healing partner

deliciously edible and scrumptious

gotta kiss that warm sweet polka dot belly

and inhale her doggie smile

Having a good dog is the closest some of us will ever come to knowing the direct love of a mother, or God.

The Animal Doctor

by D . Nicholas

Yes, he is an animal Doctor.

No, he does most of his work outside the vet’s office.

Yes, he seems to have a natural gift as a healer.

No, he charges very little for his service.

Yes, he has a great bedside manner.

No, he doesn’t explain really what’s wrong.

Yes, he just fixes the pain and goes on.

No, I haven’t seen his license.

Yes, he does resonate in abundance.


No, I don’t know how many clients he has.

Yes, I’m really thankful he’s my doctor.

No, I’ve never seen his Doctor’s office.

Yes, I’d recommend his services to anyone.

No, he doesn’t require medical insurance.

Yes, it does sound too good to be true.

No, I am not mistaken.

Yes, he is my cat.

This poem was written after I had told him that I had a tummyache one day and my cat Abundance came and sat down on my belly for awhile. When he got up, I realized that my stomach no longer hurt. He truly was a healer that cat, written in honor of my handsome cat Abundance
