What They Want Us To Know: Messages of Hope, Meaning and Unity From the Animal Kingdom.
Have you ever wondered what animals would tell us if they could? This book will give you that chance to find out! By being able to receive downloaded messages from wild and domestic animals, Shawndra translates their messages for us. These animals have shared powerful messages of unity, connection and purpose, and steps that each of us are able to take to deepen the connection, find more meaning in our lives, and become the humans that the animals know we can be. You'll hear messages from 12 different animals on what they want us to know in order to live a more profoundly amazing life. You'll be given the opportunity to learn ways to be more compassionate, tolerant and heart-centered, to the animals and to each other.
Chapter Nine Norman the Dog
NORMAN IS THE DOG WHO currently shares my life with me, and as you can see, he is adorable! In 2013, an EF5 tornado hit the vicinity of Moore, Oklahoma, causing two billion dollars of damage, including the major destruction of two schools and more than three hundred homes. It also killed twenty-four people. After the disaster, I volunteered with American Humane to help care for the animal survivors in an emergency shelter. I flew out there and was working with the feral cats and cats with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). A few days after I had arrived, they brought in the last of the “tornado dogs” from the Moore Animal Shelter and put them in a quarantine area. The other volunteers working with the dogs spent all day cleaning crates and walking the dogs. Since I certainly wasn’t taking the cats for walks and feral cats wanted nothing to do with any of us, I had extra time, so I offered to help care for these quarantined dogs.
Can you describe your dream home?
It would be deep in nature, lots of windows and natural light coming in, special glass ceilings so I could see the moon and meteor showers, totally energy efficient, no neighbors close by, not too big at all, huge garden, it will have a sauna and an endless pool too.
If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?
I would make yummy Jack fruit tacos with black beans, rice and sweet corn cake. For dessert we'd have homemade cocoa blackout cake.
Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.
I don’t have one yet, so it will be the first fan letter I receive.
Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
Petra, Jordan. I’m sure the camels would have wonderful messages to share, especially about the past!
